Dell Inspiron 15 :: Remote Hard Disk Drive Is Not Showing Document Files

Mar 27, 2013

Just purchased an Inspiron 15 laptop with Windows 8.  I removed the hard disk drive from our old Inspiron 6000, installed it in an enclosure, and hooked it to the new laptop to be able to access the document files.  (The hdd from the old computer is a Western Digital 250 GB and was newly installed six months ago).

When I plug in the enclosure, the power light comes on and it shows up on the new laptop as local disk E.  When I click on disk E and go to documents, the only documents shown are three that are saved on the new laptop, and none of the hundreds of documents saved on the hdd from the old computer.  What I can do?

Dell Inspiron 15Z :: Hard Drive Crashed - Get OS And Boot Disk?

Nov 10, 2014

Dell Inspiron 15Z model 5523 laptop less than 2 years old.  Locked up during a Windows update.  Refreshed it and lost all my programs.  Downloaded Firefox accidentally from a bad site and it was bundled with malware.  So I refreshed the laptop again.  Had everything working and then later that day it just quit.  Locked up and when I rebooted, it said no hard drive could be found.  I have a new hard drive, but how do I get my Windows 8 (paid for with the computer) and a boot disk from Dell?

HP Pavilion 14 OS/Software :: Disk Drive Not Showing Up?

Dec 13, 2014

The disk drive seems to be working fine, it opens and closes and runs. But when I put a CD in it, nothing happens. At first I thought I might've accidentally disabled autoplay but it was running, and on further inspection I noticed that the disk drive doesn't show up at all in 'This PC'. No matter where I look on the computer, I've checked all the drives and it seems to be missing everywhere, it's like it doesn't exist. 
 
Specs:
Name: HP Pavilion 14 Notebook PC
Operating System:Windows 8.1 64-bit

Dell :: Need To Save Hard Drive Files From Laptop Where Drive Might Be Damaged

Jan 3, 2009

Something recently happened to my laptop, and now whenever I boot up my laptop, I get a message stating that "No drive detected", and I don't know if the hard drive might be damaged or not.

I tried connecting the hard drive directly to a desktop pc since it's a sata hard drive, but my desktop pc just froze on the boot screen whenever this hard drive was connected.

I also was going to try and use a hard drive external case to maybe connect it to the pc this way, but I wasn't sure if it would work

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Backup Files From Hard Drive

Feb 7, 2014

My sons laptop has died and needs returned for warranty work - likely a problem with the mother board.  It was suggested that we backup files on the hard drive before sending.  I pulled the hard drive and attached it to another computer via Serial ATA to USB cable.  A portion of the hard drive can be accessed through Windows Explorer which shows 25GB of the 750GB hard drive and only shows an applications and a drivers folder.  Word documents, data and pictures cannot be found. 
 
I tried to take ownership of the hard drive thinking that this might make the data visible but it did not. I expect there is about 150GB of file storage (excluding programs) that we would like to back-up.  Am concerned that the hard drive may have been damaged but the data that is accessible seems to be whole and intact.

Acer :: Upgrading Hard Disk In 1410 - Removing Old Drive

Mar 26, 2010

I just got an Intel X18-M G1 80 gb ssd with a 2.5" enclosure to upgrade the HDD in my Acer 1410.

I opened the back panel, removed the 2 screws, then removed plastic piece holding down the gold connector, and pulled the plastic tape to get the hard drive out.

Problem now is, how do I remove the old hard drive from the chasis? I've upgraded laptop drives before and usually just there is a SATA connector. But here the SATA connector seems to be connected to a chasis/circuit board. There are several 6 point star shaped screws, including some covered by a piece of black plastic.

Apple :: Copying Contents Of Hard Disk Onto External Drive

Mar 29, 2009

Unfortunately the internal keyboard and mouse on my MBP seem to have packed up for good. Fortunately, I can still use a USB keyboard and mouse.

Is there any way I can copy the entire contents of the hard disk onto an external USB hard disk (everything so that I don't lose desktop icons, filing structure e.t.c.) and then restore it when I get a new machine?

HP Envy 14-2160se :: Hard Drive Failure - Disk Read Error Occurred

Sep 21, 2014

There's a "disk read error occured" when I startup and it won't boot into windows at all. I did a hard disk test in BIOS and the Short DST failed and the failure id is GTU23F-5QF788-XD6V5F-60UR0 for Hard Disk 1. I know there's an 80 SSD and 750 HD but which one failed?
 
If the ssd failed can I use the 750gb HD or does it need both?
 
If I do need to replace the SSD can I replace it with a regular HD (on a budget) and what size drive do I need? 2.5?

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: T530 Full Disk Encryption - Hard Drive Password?

Jul 24, 2013

I just received my T530 (2359CTO) and need to encrypt the hard drive. When I purchased it, I opted (among other reasons) for Windows 8 Professional because it comes with BitLocker. I then discovered that some ThinkPads have hard drives that support hardware encryption (FDE).
 
I've tried to figure out whether mine has this feature, but haven't had any luck. The BIOS gives me the option to set a hard drive password, but I'm not positive that it actually encrypts the hard drive with this setting.

a) how to figure out if my hard drive supports hardware encryption
b) how to enable it

Dell Inspiron 15z :: Ultrabook Lost External Drive Backup Files To Recovery Creation?

Apr 3, 2013

Inspiron 15z Ultrabook, Windows 8, DELL System Recovery.

I have an external Seagate Expansion Drive 2TB and had backup files on it. I created a new partition by shrinking the E: volume and made F: to use for the DELL System Recovery.

I selected the F: partition when asked what drive to use. I was 100% certain E: would never chosen during any steps in the process. After it finished I looked in Computer and found both partitions had been formatted and a DBR_Boot placed in both. Yet E: (where personal files were stored) is basically empty other than what appears to be a boot up capability and F: has the recovery files.

Why has this happened? I need those files. Is there a way to reverse the process or will file recovery software be needed in an attempt to regain those files?

I can't believe this hasn't happened to other people, must be a common occurrence. What I could do to recover lost files.

Dell :: Additional Hard Disk In Inspiron 1720 Will It Fit Into A Studio 17

Apr 22, 2009

I currently have a Dell Inspiron 1720 with a second hard disk I bought and fitted myself. If I get a Studio 17, will I be able to fit this hard disk into the second bay in there? As far as I'm aware the disk itself should be okay, but the caddy might be slightly different for that model - is that right? If so I'll just buy a new caddy or modify this one - otherwise I'll be 100 down for this hard disk!

Dell :: Upgrading Hard Disk On Inspiron 1520 Running Vista

Jan 6, 2009

I am replacing the installed Seagate Momentus 160 gb 5400 SATA disk with a Seagate Momentus 320gb 7200rpm SATA hard disk as I need the extra space to hold my growing itunes collection and feel the extra speed would also be welcome.

I have the original Dell installation disks (Operating System, drivers etc), the installation disks for the subsequently installed software (other than the freebies including iTunes etc available on the net) and have backed up all my critical data to an external hard drive using the vista backup facility for subsequent restoration once all the software has been installed.

I will of course keep the 160 gb drive available with all it's data intact as a secondary safeguard until I have satisfactorily completed the installation and testing of the new disk.
