Windows PC Hard Drive Problems:

PCs tend to suffer from a myriad of problems that can arise as a result of one or more faults caused by the degradation of components or general hardware failure. This is often evident in the case of hard drives that are sold to PC manufacturers who do not manufacture the drives themselves and simply choose to assemble them under their own name. One PC in a range may have a fault with a hard drive that another in the same range may not. To this end it is difficult to say one manufacturer suffers from a specific problem more than another. With that in mind however the general problems afflicting hard drives are physical malfunctions as well as incorrect or corrupted firmware. Add human factor to the mix and there is an extensive list of problems that may occur. We are here to help if you should encounter a problem with your PC hard drive and we can be contacted via www.manchester-datarecovery.co.uk

PC Hard Drive Degradation:

Hard drive degradation can occur if the components that go to make up the whole are suffering from some kind of fault. Likewise the thin oxide layer that covers the ceramic or glass platters onto which information is stored may scratch or simply begin to peel away over time. As a result of this the drive’s ability to store data may be compromised and you may find that the data you have already saved is difficult to access through the operating system. Using specialist technology and years of knowledge we at www.manchester-datarecovery.co.uk are in a position to offer you the best in data recovery solutions.

PC Hard Drive Circuit Board Failings:

Attached to your hard drive is a printed circuit board (PCB) through which information on how the drive operates is passed back and forth; working in conjunction with the motherboard and other devices such as CD or DVD ROMs. Faults may occur when this PCB becomes damaged due to wear and tear or because of an issue with the onboard chips which may have suffered at the mercy of a power surge. Solder on these PCBs may degrade too if too much heat is allowed to build up inside the case of the machine and if the PC is kept in an area where its vents are not clear and accessible by free flowing air solder degradation is likely to occur.

Windows PC Firmware Incompatibility Issues:

Issues arising from faulty firmware are all too common. Whilst manufacturers attempt where possible to ensure their firmware is correct in relation to their hardware sometimes problems do manifest. When these problems do occur in hard drives the end results to the user can be catastrophic. Loss of data and an overall inability to read or write to the hard drive can be just some of the side effects and as such we here at www.manchester-datarecovery.co.uk are to help should your PCs firmware render your hard drive inoperable.

PC Hard Drive Failure to Operate at Full Potential:

A completely frozen system is symptomatic of a hard drive related problem such as the emergence of bad sectors and read/write errors. Many users are of the opinion that performing a defragmentation of their drive or using third party software to try and clean their drive will help to resolve this problem. Sadly though this is not the case as a computer that is prone to crashing or ‘freezing’ is in itself suffering the symptoms of a degrading hard drive; one that is likely sooner rather than later to suffer from a complete failure.

Recover Lost Files with Computer Data Recovery


I have a Windows XP PC which appears to have failed for no reason. I came home after having been away for a short period, and when I tried to put the computer on, I got the beginning of the boot sequence, and then an error message which said that the system ‘cannot load the operating system’. I decided to remove all of the unnecessary hardware, such as USB connections, printers and speakers. The only connections remaining were the mouse, the keyboard and the monitor. I tried to boot using only these items, but there was no success. I have run a diagnostics program, which said that there were ‘no problems’ with the drive. When I loaded another recovery programs, I could immediately see that all of my partitions were gone, including one with the OS on, and another with a lot of files and folders which form part of my work. I have lost most of the data, which was not backed up to a separate drive, and I need help to recover both the OS, and the work folders.


I have been having some problems with my Windows 7 operating system. To begin with, it seemed as though the hard drive had failed. Rather than going into a boot screen, the system would instead go to a black screen, and put up a message saying that the ‘operating system was missing’. I tried to reboot several times, but there was no response at all. I found a recovery disk for Windows 7 eventually, and put in the first disk. I turned on the monitor expecting the boot screen, but was suddenly in Windows. However, as soon as I tried to move the mouse, the program crashed. I was trying to recover the OS because there is important documents and photographs on the computer which I don’t have additional copies of.
