Trying to fix my Brother-in-Law’s 10yr old Laptop...

Hiran’s Boot CD (on a bootable USB) is all you need to fix these kinds of issues. I’ve pulled data off of HDDs that were failing SMART test and in the midst of dying. The trick is making a bit perfect copy onto an external drive and performing data recovery. If it’s just the MBR that’s been corrupted, that’s a MUCH easier fix!

Wow, this guy was an amateur. Didn't know where the HD was located. Claimed reinstalling Windows 10 will wipe the personal data. And worst of all has no idea how to use the many free data recovery programs to do a data recovery or sector by sector clone within either Windows or Linux or by downloading and booting to one of the many free USB based utilities such as like Medicat or Gandalf.

rule #1: when client says "computer won't start. need important files", always take the drive out and back files up first, before you fiddle around trying to get it working. then, if drive fails later, at least you got their files. i know, i know, the drive was already failing, but the chance of recovering files is worse the more you cut power with drive in use...

I once had a DELL Inspiron Zino HD, and I had the same error which came a few weeks after I upgraded from Win7 to Win10 (how very interesting). But sadly we didn't have the money to buy a new licence, so I had to live with Linux, until I got a new PC. WELL, a few weeks ago my windows broke, because of a virus, so I have Linux again... I miss Windows, even if it sometimes acts like a piece of CRAP!!! EDIT: But my disk was fine... I had it in my new PC as a second drive. It died a few months ago...

This is an ancient XP laptop, yet i'm pretty sure he's trying to boot a 64 bit Win 10 on it? Is he insane lol, you should alwase go 32 bit because its an old laptop, and running Win 10 on a computer with probably less then 1 gig of ram is not a vary good idea. Should have just booted linux off a usb to grab the data from the start, then done whatever savagry afterwards.

Got to be honest, I don't know you, and I have never seen your channel before. But you don't give the impression of being someone that should be trusted to recover someone's data. You didn't know what you were doing! Trying so long to get it to boot windows and run those diagnostics could have made the problem worse if the drive was on the verge of death. If recovering files was the priority you should have plugged it into that USB as the first step.

the first thing you should have done was to open it up and rescue the files... you go for that at the middle of the video after playing with other stuff... you don't know what you are doing, this is your second video I watch and I am not impress by any of them 2... your costumer told you save the pictures, they are invaluable, the computer is like $50 at best... instead of doing that first you go for doing what you want (Fix the OS) ignoring your costumer and taking risky actions that can damage the picture files. Then I see you failing to rescue the pictures.... and blaming the driver for your sloppy work... This is the reason why people need to take their machines to professionals that have pride and respect for their craft... and their costumer wishes.

I bet at times like this your sister wished she had a brother who could do data recovery. LOL Most techies when they know the hard drive is corrupt, would shut the machine down immediately and pop out the drive and NOT rely on the MS kamikaze tools to try and repair the drive. They would put the drive in another computer and do 2 backups of the drive (or as much as possible by skipping the bad sectors) before they do drive analysis and repair. If they want free backup software I recommend Reflect by Macrium. It can backup your hard drive to an external HD lickety split (tech term for "fast"). If you back up C: drive then it can also do a bare bones restore to a new drive if you remember to create a recover disk. Great software, for free.

You might have been able to recover the drive using easeus software or something similar windows isn't going to be able to open the drive if it's somewhat corrupt but you can use other programs to further inspect the drive. How do you not know basic troubleshooting you didn't even research any other solutions to fix the problem?

You should've installed a SSD in there instead of the 1TB HDD. You can upgrade that CPU (i.e core 2 duo T8300 (cheapest option), T9300, T9500) and 2x2GB DDR2 800mhz RAM as well. Look at the wifi card as well, if it came with the Dell DW1395 you can upgrade that so you get 2.4 ghz & 5ghz with Dell DW1490, DW1505. All three upgrades will set you back less than $12? Look on aliexpress.

Their are some ways to just scan the drive fully, even if the partitions were wiped to raw, and to rebuild the files from the data-mess left over. I do it regularly, and those cases of drive activity pinned with no data going in or out is just a sign of dead sectors in the middle of the MFT or partition table (more like MFT in your case, else you would have a raw drive), hanging up the drive for ever. Try to look for some >honest It's not a case of physical abuse (like burning, water, smashing and stuff), that drive heads are not parking-crashing into the platters, cases where even > I Most likely, some sectors just died of old age, and as it fails at indexing the drive's content but detects partition, it REALLY looks like some dead sectors in the MFT. And if it the case, it's recoverable with a 10-40h scan&compute dead stare at a loading bar :D

Bah. IF it's really a failing drive (motor or board) you could have located the same hard drive on ebay, first moved the circuit boards from new to old, and if that did not work, move the platters from the old to the new drive... and got the hard drive up and running just long enough to hopefully recover the data. This is only of course if you aren't willing to mail the drive off for expensive data recovery... depends on whats there as to how far you go.

Pal you did like those stupid users do! Before you done all those tests, try's to recover windows startup you already killed a hdd. So if your hdd gets first bad blocks your windows can start load too long or it gives some sort of blue screens, etc... So first - before trying to do something heavy for hdd, get your data of the HDD! Use a knoppix live boot from your USB flash drive, connect external drive for data and start copying your files. When that's done, you can go to the next steps and check if your hdd is still usable or useless. To check that you can check smart status with hdd guardian from second pc's windows or parted magic flash drive boot.
