Serious Problems with your PC Hard Drive:

Here at www.advanceddatarecovery.co.uk we are often presented with a variety of problems relating to PC hard drives. A lot of these problems can result in the inability to use the PC and the potential loss of the data stored on it. We are used to dealing with the plethora of faults that befall PC hard drives at a hardware level and can help you identify a problem if it has been caused by faulty hardware or firmware. If you switch on your PC and are greeted with a blank screen and a number of beeps then you may well have a faulty motherboard or (dependant on the number of beeps) a faulty hard drive. If you have switched on a computer in your home or office and have been presented with this kind of error warning then contact us at your earliest possible convenience and our engineers will do our best to diagnose the fault and explain how we can help you recover your data.

Mechanical Failure on your PC Hard Drive:

The Read/Write heads, the motor and the platters that are powered by the motor are all susceptible to degradation within a hard drive. Some of the reasons for this may be general wear and tear (where a hard drive has not had enough downtime). The platters within a hard drive may fail if there has been an issue with the actuator arm that passes the Read/Write heads over them. A hard drive suffering issues related to any of the aforementioned technology is not likely to function correctly and as such should have the data recovered as soon as possible to avoid complete loss.

Electronic Issues with your PC Hard Drive:

The onboard circuitry of a hard drive not only allows it to pass information between the computer and the hard drive, but also converts the magnetic domains on the drive into bytes to be used as storage. Damage to the circuitry on the board may lead to the instability or loss of this function, resulting in bad sectors, and corruption to the firmware which may be stored on a chip attached to this board depending on the age of the drive.

Firmware Problems with your Hard Drive on your PC:

Occasionally you may find that the firmware that has been factory set to your hard drive is out of date, or is no longer compatible with your drive or the motherboard it is connected to. If an update is required then it may be possible to download said update from the manufacturers’ website. If you are unsure as to how this update may affect your hard drive or having installed an update it has rendered your drive inoperable, you should contact us at www.advanceddatarecoverylondon.co.uk

General Performance Issues with your PC Hard Drive:

The operating system of a PC can cause your hard drive to fail if important system files have been deleted or corrupted by bad sectors on the hard drive. Many users use the same hard drive for both operating system and the storage of data and it because of this that problems can arise if the operating system ceases to function correctly. Indeed without partitioning or the use of an additional hard drive to store data to, there is a chance that the operating system failure may lead to the loss of data and we at www.advanceddatarecoverylondon.co.uk can assist with recovery if this happens.

I have been using a Windows 7 Ultimate OS on a PC. At the beginning, I was using it on an old computer, just as a standby, but recently I have been doing more work with the computer, including saving a lot of data to the hard drive. This drive has now failed. It started failing when I tried to write information on to the hard drive, but when I tried to recover the information by installing the drive into a new Toshiba computer, the operating system would not work. I have put in the Windows 7 disks, and the computer can see the drive with the data on it, but there is some problem with the disk size, and the computer can’t seem to recover the available space. BIOS also cannot work out the disk size.


I have a Windows 7 professional computer which has suddenly crashed. It was working perfectly normally until about a month ago, when it suddenly failed completely. I lost all the data, and had to have everything installed from new, including paying for software for the second time. The reason that I need help now is that I have now had the hard drive from the initial crash returned to me. I had assumed that the company would do some recovery work, but they haven’t, so the hard drive is almost untouched. As I said, I lost everything in this crash, and that includes a lot of data that I had saved directly to the computer. I now have data on two drives, and want to recover the lost information from the first hard drive, but without damaging the drive which is now in the computer. Is it possible to recover lost data from a completely failed hard drive?
