Laptop Hard Drive Issues We Regularly Deal With:
Laptop hard drives from all the leading Laptop and Notebook manufacturers fail. Most of the hard drives inside laptops today or 2.5″ and 1.8″ SATA, SSD, ZIF drives. In the past the drives would have had standard IDE connections. The large manufactures for Laptop these days are Apple, Sony, Fujitsu, Acer, Asus and Toshiba. There are signs your laptop may be experience software type problems such as blue screen, question mark, won’t let you log on, will not get past the boot up screen etc. Mechanical problems are indicated by clicking, buzzing or beeping noises from laptop indicating a problem with the hard drive. We are London’s best Data Recovery Company. Below is a list of common laptop faults we receive in for recovery:
Laptop Hard Drive Failure Through Physical Damage or Electrical Interference:
Mechanical failures is usually indicated on a Laptop by clicking, buzzing or beeping noises. Buzzing or beeping noises is normally an indication that there is a problem with the motor inside the hard drive casing. The motor spins the disk platters. If the platters are not spinning correctly then the data cannot be read from them and thus you will get buzzing or beeping noises. The other common mechanical damage is clicking noises coming from a laptop. This indicates there is a problem with the read/write heads that read the sectors on the disk platters. Our laptop engineers have 14 years experience in recovering data from mechanically damaged Laptops.
Laptop Hard Drive Electronic & PCB Problems:
Electronic failure on a laptop is normally the result of a Laptop either having the wrong power supply connected to the Laptop or that it has received a power spike from the power socket that it was plugged into. If your Laptop power supply gets broken our advice is to replace it with an exact match from the manufacturer. When a hard drive has an electronic failure it normally means the PCB on the back on the hard drive has blown some chips on the board. We have over 15,000 Electronic PCB’s in stock exclusive for our clients.
Laptop Hard Drive Firmware Upgrades and Installations:
Laptop firmware is software that resides on the hard drive disk platters or electronic board (PCB). When firmware code gets corrupted on your hard drive the Laptop will not work correctly. We have built up a large HDD firmware database to fix this type of problem. If you have a firmware problem contact London’s No1 Data Recovery Company.
Laptop Hard Drive Problems Caused by Badly Installed Operating Systems:
When a Laptop runs slowly and starts to freeze this is the most common Laptop fault. When this happens it normally means the hard drive is degrading. In most cases it means there are a lot of bad sectors on the hard drive and as a result of this the Laptop cannot read the contents on the hard drive’s disk platters and thus freezes the system. We have 14 years experience of recovering data from this type of problem. We have the best hardware imaging equipment to image the bad sectors from the damaged hard drives.
