Hard disk error help

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Help pls. I had problem with one of my hard drive with windows 7. It is stuck in the windows logo forever. Next, i attached the said drive to other computer, hoping that i could get inside that drive and secure and copy my files to other drive, but the problem, it cant be detected by the other computer. Upon bios posting, it says "hdd / s.m.a.r.t error".

Help pls. Is there any other way to revive the drive? My intention is only to get the documents i needed from that drive.

Probably not. A S.M.A.R.T (Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology) error usually means something fatal happened with your drive. Have you tried booting to another windows install and seeing what you can get?

Unfortunately, the windows installer wont recognize the hard drive already. The only thing i am confused is that when i make it as a boot dive, it could start, only, it would stuck until the windows logo appeared.

Do you think the drive is dead already?

Haha, What I meant was do you have another computer you can stick that hard drive in? Its very likely that the hard drive is dead already, but if it consistently gets stuck on the same part of the logo, then it might just be a bad file.

If you can't put it in another computer, than get a bootable linux CD and see what you can recover. thumb.gif

Yup, i did put the hard drive to aother computer, i both tried to make it as primary boot drive, but still,it stucks until the windows logo appeared, and next, i make it as a slave drive, but then, it is not recognized by the computer. It cant be seen on the "My Computer"

I think you might have lost your data, man. Stuff like this happens all the time, just make sure to make backups!
