Laptop HDD Problems:

Most of us use a laptop in the same way as we would a desktop computer with the additional benefit of being able to take it with us on the move. But in doing so problems may arise if the laptop sustains a knock or is bumped, or dropped. To this end laptop hard drives are susceptible to damage more than their desktop counterparts. In saying that however they also suffer from the same hardware and software failings as a desktop PC and we at Advanced Data Recovery London find that we deal a lot with laptop hard drive problems that mirror those of their desktop companions.

Failure of your Laptop Hard Drive for Mechanical Reasons:

The mechanics of a laptop HDD are equal to those of their desktop PC counterparts but on a much smaller scale. Regardless of their overall size however these components operate in the same way as any other hard drive and are prone to similar failings. Platters may spin out of control, Read/Write heads may suddenly jam or the minute actuator arm that moves these heads back and forth may snap. However unlike a desktop PC these components may break because of adverse force applied to them whilst on the move. Whatever the reasons behind the failings of these components we at Advanced Data Recovery London can help recover your data to an alternative media of your choice.

Laptop Hard Drive Electronics Failure:

Sometimes it proves necessary to replace the hard drive within a laptop as a result of problems arising from the drive’s PCB. This small but important piece of hardware carries important information and sometimes the firmware that allows the drive to function. As important as the drive’s internal hardware, the PCB can degrade if it has been subjected to any kind of severe trauma; the solder that is used to connect a whole host of chips and capacitors may snap or crack if too much pressure is applied. It is important to note that while many sites on the Internet promote the possible replacement of said PCB the chances of successfully carrying out such a procedure are very slim and indeed it is possible to cause more damage to the drive. With this in mind if you think your laptop HDD has failed because of PCB degradation then we recommend you contact us here at Advanced Data Recovery London.

Failure Of Your Laptop’s HDD Firmware:

Firmware is a small program that is tucked away on the hard drive’s platters and serves to tell the hard drive how to react when working alongside other devices. However problems do occur with firmware if there has been a corruption that has rendered it unreadable by the laptop’s motherboard and the hard drive itself. And while the hard drive may continue to have the platters spinning, the drive itself may well become unreadable as those aspects of the firmware that govern the Read/Write process are damaged.

Clashes Between Your Laptop’s HDD & Operating System:

Yes it is true that an operating system can have problems and the computer will still function. However it will function at a cost. The operating system can develop problems if important system files are accidentally deleted or if bad sectors render certain files useless. In addition while attempting to clean up your hard drive using the operating system’s built-in disk management tools it is possible to move files from perfectly good sectors to bad, thus preventing them from working. This kind of problem with an operating system is often referred to as a ‘Logical Error’. If you feel that the operating system installed on your laptop is causing conflicts between the laptop and the hard drive then contact us at Advanced Data Recovery London

Recovering Data from a Laptop


I bought an HP laptop which had Windows 7 home edition installed on it. There are two partitions, one of which is a recovery disk. I decided that I should make a backup of the recovery disk, just in case, and then upgraded the system to Windows 8. During the Windows 8 installation, I formatted the C drive exactly as it told me. However, when I went into the system, I found that there was now a third drive which the system had automatically created. I have decided that I prefer Windows 7 to the new OS, but I have not been able to recover it. I am getting a message which says that files are missing. I thought that I would load up the disks, which were loaded when the system was pristine. I got the same message. I have saved some data to the Windows 7 OS which I would like back, and I thought that by keeping it in the recovery disks I would be able to access it if anything went wrong. So far, I have not been able to get into Windows 7 or find the data.


I have an older laptop which needs to be recovered in order to access the data that is on it. What has happened is that I got a few messages about my hard drive which I was not able to sort out. Then, the system crashed, and now it reboots into recovery mode all the time, and also puts up the blue screen of death. When I click an option, such as Safe Mode, all that happens is that it boots straight into the recovery mode. I have refreshed the PC, and uninstalled all of the third party software which I could see in BIOS, but it is not responding. I have an external hard drive but it needs to be in Windows in order to read the data. I have not been able to access the information that is contained on the disks, as all that happens is that the system repeatedly reboots, goes into recovery mode, and then crashes.
