No access to data. No hardware-style repair attempts. We made a few tests by running software diagnostics, with no positive results though.
Customer response after successful recovery: I am very pleased with results and would give my references about my great experience with you in case you ever need it.
Toshiba laptop hard drive can flawlessly work for years, yet sometimes it suffers from a data loss due to its internal defects that can also relate to the corrupt firmware code or electronic elements failures.
A simple – yet very effective diagnostic method you may try yourself is to connect a faulty drive to PC and watch the BIOS screen on boot sequence (or device manager for external connections) for error messages about your drive. The most typical failure symptoms come with the error messages listed below.
- Disk boot failure. Insert system disk and press enter
- Primary Master Hard Disk Fail
- No operating system found
- USB Device malfunctioned error
- S.M.A.R.T. Capable But Command Failed
Be prepared to turn off the power to any device with a hard drive having any symptoms of clicking, knocking or beeping sound to stop and prevent further data damage. Most often these are indications of serious problems with mechanically moving parts like disk spindle or block of heads - when heads are literally grinding the disk platters. The silent HDD or beeping sound from the electronic board indicates the symptoms that accompanies the stuck motor axle or glued heads. A very accurate repairing and cleaning procedures must be made before the actual recovery starts for these types of problems.
