Thread: HDD problem. Need some answers.

  1. #1

    Default HDD problem. Need some answers.

    My friends computer just went. Nothing on the screen, won't boot etc. I have checked memory, vid card, etc. I know it must be the hdd because I put one of my hdd in and it started to boot. Different drivers so some things would not work but that showed the vid card worked along with everything else except the hdd. My problem is the hdd works when I attach it to my computer. I can see all the folders etc. I tried to clone and see if that would work but when I put it into their computer it would not boot. When I did a clone one screen came up and said it could not read some sector. What can I do now that the old hdd is cloned? I did keep all info on the old hdd also. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    All you can do is RMA the older drive if possible, or restore that image you have onto a new drive.

    If the clone wont restore, then you will have to do a clean install them move over whatever data they need to keep. Have you ran diagnostic tools from the manufacturer on this drive yet? If not please do, it might not be faulty and could just be the OS install is corrupted is all.

    <style type="text/css"> <!-- @page { margin: 2cm } P { margin-bottom: 0.21cm } --> </style> There are some problem in hard disk. May be hard disk infected wih bad sector. So first of all you can try to connect hard disk in another computer and then you can check hard disk and then if hard disk does not support then you can change your had disk.
