An Overview As To The Reasons Why PC Hard Drives Malfunction:

Unlike Apple Mac computers PCs tend to use a myriad of components that are garnered from a variety of different sources and then put together to make one machine. As a result of this many problems can arise as a result of one or more faults caused by the degradation of components from one or more manufacturers. This is no more evident than in the case of hard drives that are manufactured by a great many companies and then sold on to PC manufacturers. Where one PC in a range may develop a fault on a hard drive another in the same range may develop a different fault because the hard drive was manufactured elsewhere. To this end it is difficult to say that one maker suffers a problem more than another. That said the general problems are physical malfunctions within the hard drive as well as incorrect or corrupted firmware. Add to this the human factor and there are a whole host of problems that can occur. We are here to help if you should encounter such a problem and we can be contacted via www.easyrecovery.co.uk

PC Read/Write Problems And What May Cause Them:

PC hard drives often have physical failings such as spindles and platters falling out of alignment as well as actuator arms that break or twist and Ribbon cables that kink beyond use. We have come across these and many other problems during our 15-year existence and can offer you a diagnosis as to what the cause of the problem might be. And even if we are not in a position to repair the hard drive itself we can certainly help reunite you with your missing data that would otherwise be lost if you simply decided to replace the drive.

PC Hard Drive And PCB Failure Due To Power Surges:

Many of us, either at home or at work, tend to leave our PCs on for long periods of time. Not only does this count towards reducing the lifespan of the computer but it also increases the risk of the PC suffering a problem caused by a power outage or surge. A power surge can damage the hard drive, the CPU, the memory or the motherboard, all of which are key components in your PC and its ability to function. Whereas a motherboard, CPU or memory can be replaced without the loss of data sadly this cannot be said about a hard drive and therefore it may be necessary to call upon the services of us here at www.easyrecovery.co.uk in order to help you recover that data.

PC Onboard Firmware And Software Changes Influencing A Crash:

Problems arising from issues with firmware are common. Whilst manufacturers attempt as much as possible to ensure their firmware programs are correct in relation to their hardware sometimes problems do occur. When these problems do occur where hard drives are concerned the results to the user can be catastrophic. Loss of data and an overall inability to access the hard drive can be just some of the results and as such we are here at www.easyrecovery.co.uk to help should your PCs firmware render your hard drive unusable.

Why Has Your PC Become Unresponsive After An Unannounced Crash?:

Stalling, jittering or completely freezing systems are asymptomatic of hard drive related problems such as bad sectors and read/write errors. Many users think that by performing a defrag or using third party software to try and clean their hard drives this problem will resolve itself. Sadly however this is not the case as a computer that is prone to crashing or ‘hanging’ is in itself a symptom of a degrading hard drive; one that is likely sooner rather than later to fail

Windows Computer Repair

WINDOWS 7 HOME PREMIUM:

Hello, I would like some help with an Operating System problem. I self-built my own computer some time ago, and have installed Windows 8 into one of the partitions on the drive, to give it a trial. That seemed fine for a few months, and I saved data to the drive and also downloaded some new software especially for this OS. However, on starting the computer this morning, I have now started to receive error warnings, including Windows\system32\config\Windows error. It would then freeze up, and refuse to go into any other screens. I tried to recover the system using a Windows 8 disk, but this has not worked, and I get the same message as before. I can’t load up as far as the BIOS screen, and I can’t access anything apart from that system error. I have a lot of data, not just on the Windows 8 partition, but across the drive, and I need to recover it all. I need to get as much off the system as possible without corruption.

WINDOWS 98 OPERATING SYSTEM:

I am having problems with a Windows 98 installation disk, which I want to fit onto the computer. I got the disk from a relative, and had all the codes, so I installed it into the system. However, after only a few months of use, I am not able to get into the operating system. The computer refuses to boot up into the OS. The computer itself is new, and I wanted the old OS to keep using an older version of Microsoft Excel to create spreadsheets which has not been updated since the Windows 98 period. I have already created 102 spreadsheets over the couple of months, and I have saved the files on the drive. These are of great work value to me, and I want to recover them from this blocked OS.

Windows Computer Repair

Although we are now moving towards an age of tablets, laptops and more portable computers the most popular computer still in the market place today – and indeed in the office place – is the Windows PC.

With Windows PCs still operating on systems right back as far as Windows 95 there are a whole host of problems that can arise when using them either for home or commercial use. Indeed many individuals still operate on older operating systems out of a sense of being able to understand their needs and without fancy bolt-ons and features they would have no requirement for.

Right back as far as Windows 95 – of which there are still many thousands of copies still in existence – the so called ‘Blue Screen of Death’ (BOD) is the one thing that symbolizes that problems can be occurring with your hard drive.

Indeed along the versions Windows has offered the opportunity to use defrag as a means of cleaning up a disk and rendering it fit for use when errors have been reported. And there are occasions when a simple defrag are sufficient but for the most part all the defrag feature allows you to do is move fragmented information and data from varying parts of the hard drive to one series of sectors in a uniform manner.

Windows also allows for the detection of bad sectors on a hard drive and their segregation. For many users this sounds like an idea option and the perfect way out of replacing a hard drive but in all actuality they are really just prolonging the problem. Rendering bad sectors unreadable and moving them from one place to another does not remove them, it simply tells the operating system to avoid using them upon saving information.

Many of the latter versions of Windows, including Windows 7 that is the most popular even though Windows 8 is not available, will simply report that there is a hard drive error without informing the user as to what it is. No error code is given and for many the only option here is to try and reinstall a new copy of the operating system over the old. This is fine if you have nothing of value on the drive but if you have a lot of information that is difficult to regenerate then a reinstall is something that you should steer clear off.

Don’t forget that if you keep a lot of your information on the desktop in a ‘My Documents’ folder then a reinstall will erase the desktop and delete this information off.

Contacting www.easyrecovery.co.uk is suggested in order to ensure that your information is recovered and can be recovered from disk drives that many would otherwise say were beyond repair and would simply replace or reformat.
