Common PC Hard Drive Faults:

Many reasons can be cited as to why the PC hard drive fails. Many people consider that they should be waiting for some kind of audible noise to signify that their drive is failing but this is not always the case. Yes there are occasions when the drive will make a noise that sounds like metal grating against metal; but there are a variety of other signs that can indicate hard drive failure. Among them are the appearance of the dreaded ‘Blue Screen of Death’ as well as a computer rebooting itself continually until stopped by user intervention. These signs occur when a hard drive has suffered physical damage such as head, spindle or platter errors, or a failure on the part of the motor to make the platters move.

PC Hard Drive Head, Motor & Platter Degradation:

As touched on above the Read/Write heads, the motor and the platters that are powered by the motor, are all susceptible to degradation within a hard drive. Among the reasons for this are general wear and tear (where a hard drive is not given enough downtime and is allowed to constantly spin with no power save enabled). The platters within a hard drive may degrade if there has been an issue with the actuator arm that passes the Read/Write heads over them at 50+ movements a second. A hard drive suffering issues related to any of the aforementioned technology is likely not to function correctly and as such should have the data recovered as soon as possible to avoid complete loss.

PC Hard Drive Onboard Circuitry Trouble:

The onboard circuitry on a hard drive not only allows for the passing of information between the computer and the hard drive but also accounts for how the magnetic domains on the drive are converted into bytes for the purposes of storage. Damage to the circuitry on the board attached to the hard drive may lead to the instability of these domains, resulting in bad sectors, as well as corruption to the firmware which (in the case of older drives) may be stored on a chip attached to this board.

PC HDD and Motherboard Firmware Conflict:

Firmware is the permanent software program that controls the level of communication between the PC and the hard drive. The firmware is a small program resembling an operating system that governs how the hard drive and the computer operate in relation to each other and any failing between the two can lead to an inability to recover the data from the hard drive. Firmware can also become out of date if certain components within the PC are changed (such as the motherboard which the firmware might have originally been designed to communicate with). We at www.nottinghamdatarecovery.co.uk are able to help you recover your data from a hard drive that has ceased to function as a result of the loss of functioning firmware.

PC Hard Drive And Windows Operating System Read/Write Problems:

The operating system of any PC (usually Windows-based) can cause your hard drive to fail if certain important system files have been deleted or have been corrupted by bad sectors on the hard drive where the operating system has been stored. As many users simply use the same hard drive for both operating system and the storage of data, then problems can arise if the operating system ceases to function correctly. Indeed without partitioning or an additional hard drive to store data to the likelihood is that an operating system failure may lead to the loss of data and we at www.nottinghamdatarecovery.co.uk can assist with recovery if this happens.

Recover Lost Files with Computer Data Recovery


I have a small problem with my Windows 7 desktop. It started after I fitted a brand new printer driver into the desktop. The system crashed and then restarted itself whenever I was at the desktop, sometimes within a matter of seconds. Eventually, it was only loading as far as the first welcome screen, with the manufacturer’s logo. I sought advice, and was told that I should reinstall the operating system, which seems to have been lost. I wanted to back up my hard drive, so that I could recover the data that was on it. However, when I try to do a backup, the system ‘hangs’ or pauses. This can go on for more than 10 or 20 minutes, and eventually I just have to restart the laptop I am trying to put my data onto. I have assumed that it is something to do with the problems that the rest of the desktop has been having, but it means that I can’t get the system to copy any of the data which is on the hard drive before I install the new OS.


I bought the system with the programs already installed, and this means that they have no recovery or OS disks. I did not think to make one in order to preserve my data, and it worked great for a few weeks, but now I have a problem when I start up the desktop. Firstly, I get a message saying ‘Your PC needs to be repaired’, and there is a pause before a second message, which says ‘OS could not load because a file is missing or has errors’. Then it gives me an error code which is too long for me to copy in the short time that it is on the screen. I then get put into a screen that offers me recovery options. I have gone through the recovery options but nothing works. I need the hard drive cloned onto a new working drive so I can boot up my system with new disk as I use the computer for work and need the system up and running again ASAP.
