I have experienced the same pain as you with my cousin's hp laptop, the drive was faulty and so I had to replace it with a ssd. So first I took all the bottom screws out and only then I realized that I only needed to press the battery release mechanism to the opposite side and the whole bottom slides out of the way. So it was a tooled entry, so all those 10 screws needed to be put back in. Oh what a joy that was. 🤣

So, ok I get it. You're one of those kinda guys that need the "latest and greatest" OS to be there and when problems arise you need it to hold your hand all the time to walk you through... and if not successful blame it on the "old" machine. Did it ever occur to you that you could simply pull the drive, launch a live linux and look if there is anything wrong with the machine? In the next step plug the drive into a usb casing and mirror/image it, retrieve data from said made image and leave the poor old drive alone???!!! Nope it probably would have never occurred to you.

1. Why didnt you replace the old disk with a ssd? 2. Why did you install windows 10 on such an old machine? Windows xp would be alot faster, and so would windows7/8. Windows 10 just loves memory, while running way to many tasks in the background, not a big deal on new machines but on old machines it makes the system way to slow and unresponsive. A Linux distro with low system requirements would also work, but i guess the "customer" is too locked into windows. Even if linux is easy.

So if you have the drive still there are 3 tricks i have learned. first fry replacing the main CKT board if that fails freeze the drive in a sealed bag with silica bags this will increase the head size due the the expanding platter this will give you a 15 to 30 minutes of life if the platter is not deeply scratched. 3rd option attempt to format the drive then use a file recovery software and with the HD in external mode scan it. I hope you see this and wish you the best man as i would hate for your brother inlaw to lose memories in the field as i would hate to lose mine after so many years of being deployed myself.

the worst recovery try ever, you do know if you can get into windows recovery mode on boot you can go to troubleshoot then bypass windows failed boot by disabling graphics drivers to get into windows 10 to recover files if that doesnt work there is another way to protect all personal files on windows 10 and part reboot using windows 10 recovery files on the hdd without the need for a windows 10 disc. this person aint even a qualified pc expert but thinks he is.... me on the other hand im an amateur at windows 10 recover but have learnt alot for testing my own ways.

If only important thing anyone has is photos then they can easily back up the photos on a flash drive that costs like $10 or less. Saves you the trouble of having to spend $100 to get it copied from a professional or store after the computer or drive fails.

If a laptop is 10 years old, that thing could die at any given moment. Might as well copy the HD and toss it in the trash and buy a new $400 laptop.

Boot into a linux live system, make your back ups. Slap a lightweight distro on it (xubuntu, lubuntu, Bodhi) .. there you go. Fixed. Why would you install Windows 10 on that dinosaur??? That OS has a massive Footprint... and normally for people that just use their machines for office stuff or Video watching, linux is more than sufficient. I don't get why not more tech channels recommend that! Linux is not Voldemort ffs... it has a gui .. start menu and everything. People never have to touch the cli if they dont want to.. i'm really disappointed in this video and i hope people won't take the stuff you did in there for granted and lose hope in fixing their old machines.

I’ve used Windows 10 Repair, System Restore, and a fresh Windows 10 dvd and nothing works. I’m using a Linux usb based os and I can access my c drive but have no clue how to repair. I’m getting an Alienware for Christmas but what should I do with the HP DV6-6c11nr? The fan is broke and I don’t know how to repair it but ALL my music and pictures is on that drive.

What idiot deploys out with a hard drive and doesn't even make one copy of the importsnt pictures and other files onto a cheap flash drive at least and put it on a different computer before going. No sympathy for stupidity. Go ssd. Also you didn't even try to use basic data recovery software and you could've linux jumped it and scanned the HD.

Your trying to connect that hard drive to your laptop is a big mistake: 1- Don't attach hard drive, especially when it is being faulty, and move it while it spinning 2- The best action was to send it to a qualified agency that have required facilities to deal with the hard drive media at low level operations to save as much as possible of its data. Every try to run faulty hard drive increase the data disaster on it. I think that the best thing that you may have to do, is to supply that laptop with a new SSD drive and install any light weight Linux distro to it instead of Windows, such as Xubuntu and waiting the results from the hard drive repairing agency.

You might have wanted to try booting from Zorin OS live CD, and see if you can read the data, if so, attempt to copy, if not then try cloning drive to a good hard drive using -dd and the disk dump gui. That process has work for me in the past.

Those previous errors have nothing to do with Windows not booting. That error indicates that the hard drive is FAILING!!! That data needs to be cloned from that drive if possible and that hard drive discarded immediately! You congratulated him for participating in Virus 10!!!??? Don't even get me started on everything wrong with W10!!! Preparing automatic repair on a failing drive... YEAH!!! Poke that drive with a stick while you're at it!!! Windows will not "wipe" itself; *YOU* have to initiate that! YOU DO NOT WANT REPAIR!!! You need to get that failing drive transferring data and you are still jacking with that dying drive!!! Installing Windows will NOT wipe the drive unless *YOU* FORMAT the existing partition(s) or DELETE the existing partition(s)! Once again - WHY ARE YOU RUNNING A REPAIR ON A DYING DRIVE!!?? @4:55 Offloading the pictures - THAT IS THE ONLY THING YOU SHOULD BE DOING RIGHT NOW!!! That wonderful Dell hardware diagnostic tool already told you that drive is DYING!!! @5:09 *NOW* You decide to "Play it safe"? If the drive was not spinning (as you said "turning") then you wouldn't have seen the recovery partition, either not to mention any drive letters at all as a drive that does not spin up will fail to ID (if properly) in the first place... @9:10 Why on Earth are people still installing that self-destructing OS!? If it was a Vista machine (it actually looks like it may have been keyed for Win7) putting 10 on it is even worse. Do everyone a favor and if you're thinking about virus 10 just put Linux Mint on it instead! @9:23 YES!!! THIS!!! Too many people DO NOT understand just how important this rule is!!! This is the one thing you said right! Any data you do not have 2 or more copies of on separate media counts as data that you don't care about! It does not matter what computer or OS you have installed - ALWAYS BACKUP YOUR DATA!!! Sending it off to a data recovery center - they can likely recover it. Depending on how much data there is (in capacity) the recovery cost can easily be well over $1200.

This reminds me of recovering similar stuff from a mac mini 2010, one of the 2.5 inch drives in it was dead, I had to sit there, and weigh down the drive b/c the platters were vibrating, and something was scratching in it. Edit: this was a apple formatted drive using a apple machine to recover the data. (apple disk utility is great) Edit 2: exact same problem with my drive jay, it had a power failure just give it some time, and use a Mac/Linux (or just any unix system) system. Don't use shitty windows 10 stuff.

If I knew that i was trying get someones windows 10 computer back up and running and they had onedrive setup to backup pictures, documents music, ect I would have just had them tell me their microsoft account info and then i would have reinstalled it. I could had the in laws computer back online before even needing to take the hard drive out.If the in law has a windows 10 computer then they have one drive which backups files like pictures all you need is a microsoft account. If ondedrive is setup to backup the files its so easy to get them back you just reinstall windows and sign in with the same microsoft account that you were using before it crashed.

One of the BEST tools for recovering data from a drive that Windows won't recognize as having any storage capacity is TestDisk! It's FREE and it allows you to bypass the MBR and MFT and recover files straight from the raw data. It also allows you to rebuild the MFT and MBR. I use it all the time when my friends and family come to me with corrupt HDDs (which, unfortunately, happens a lot more than you might think) and I have yet to have it fail on me. I have come across HDDs where recovering the MFT and MBR is impossible but NEVER have I had it be unable to recover files.
