Commonly Encountered PC HDD Problems:

Personal Computers come with an array of components and additional peripheral devices that allow you to do more than just the mundane but in order to do anything at all with your PC you need to have a fully functioning hard drive. Here at www.guildforddatarecovery.co.uk we have a detailed knowledge base and experts on hand to help with the problems that may arise when using your PC especially if the problems you are encountering are related to your hard drive. Your hard drive may fail for any number of reasons, some of them physical, some of them caused by the electronics or simply because of an inability on the behalf of the firmware to register the drive’s existence with the operating system. Whatever the problem we can help you resolve the issue and make sure that you have the most up-to-date copy of your data recovered and stored on a format of your choosing

PC HDD Mechanical Component Crashes:

Within the hard drive inside your PC there are a whole host of components that work together to provide you with the ability to save and recall data as and when you need to. But in order to do this these components have to function correctly and because of the size and the very complicated nature of their manufacturer issues with one or more can occur causing a hard drive failure. Hard drives are made up of a series of thin platters which are used to save the data that you write to them and across these platters a series of read/write heads operated by an arm thinner than a human hair. It is not uncommon for this arm – known as an actuator – to break thus rendering the ability to read or write null and void. With this in mind we can help you recover the data on a hard drive that has suffered the loss of an actuator arm

PC Hard Drive Onboard Chip Failure:

The printed circuit board attached to the hard drive in your PC is there to ensure that the instructions from the firmware are correctly followed and that the data you save and read from the drive follows a specific path. On this board there are a variety of chips and capacitors and there may be occasions when one or more of these components fail because of adverse current sent through them. Power surges can easily damage these components as they are only designed to withstand the current from ordinary main sockets and anything beyond the desire current can cause the PCB to fail and the capacitors to literally pop. If you have experienced a power surge in your home or office and as a result can no longer access your hard drive please contact us so that we may help you recover the data that would otherwise be lost

What is PC Firmware?:

Small in size but packing a punch Firmware is a program that sends, receives and issues commands between the devices in your PC and the hard drive. Without firmware your motherboard, CPU, Memory and other devices would not be able to function and would certainly not be able to function in unison with each other. But problems can arise if the firmware, for example, is contained on a PCB that has been damaged by a power surge or on a hard drive that’s platters have been damaged by physical failure. Generally the firmware is installed at the factory build stage and remains on the device permanently unless the firmware itself malfunctions.

PC Speed & Stability Reduced:

When you first buy a PC or have one built for you it is immediately noticeable how quickly the machine functions especially when reading or writing information to the hard drive. If you use the machine with any regularity you will be able to spot any lapses in the speed and this may be an indicator that there is perhaps a problem with a device. Many consider a slow computer to mean a problem with memory but the fact is that memory tends to simply give up and require replacing. This is easily identifiable as the problem as the computer will not boot up and usually the BIOS checking the motherboard will check for memory parity issues. If the computer starts and begins to show signs of ageing such as files opening slowly or data transferring slowly from one location to another then it could well be a hard drive problem. Hard drive problems are sometimes picked up on if the ‘Blue Screen of Death’ appears with a series of error codes or if the disk utility reports a fault. If you are experiencing issues with the speed and stability of your PC and think the hard drive is at fault please contact us here at www.guildforddatarecovery.co.uk
