Hard Drive Faults

  Hard Drive Faults – Computer Repairs in Central London

Hard Drives will eventually fail due to limited life. They are easily damaged if the laptop is knocked or banged when turned on. Sometimes even during normal careful use the hard drive can fail due to a head failing. if partial failure occurs then the laptop will probably lockup during Windows loading or it may continually reset. As soon as a hard drive starts to fail all data should be backed up as the fault will get worse not better. we are able to offer data recovery and backup as required. When a hard drive is replaced it will be necessary to have Windows reinstalled and drivers reloaded we can do this provided the laptop has a genuine windows license key number on an official Microsoft label (usually on the base of the laptop) or you have the original Windows install disks. Alternatively, if the hard drive is working well enough to make a 'mirror' copy then we can transfer all the drives contents from the old to the new drive.
