Data Recovery From Failed PC Hard Drive

A PC can stop working abruptly following a direct cause or smoothly due to obsolescence and the clutter of Data Recovery and software. Therefore, it becomes unusable. Recovering data from failed PC hard drive might be necessary or even vital in some situations. In this article, we will explain the main steps of a conductive line in order to arrive at the data safely.

A PC can break down for reasons related to the hardware or to the software system (OS, drivers and software). Some users pay more attention to the PC, some to the Data Recovery, and some to both.

In the case where the PC is the center of interest, identifying the failure is relatively easy. We disconnect all the accessory elements to the motherboard and we keep the essentials in order to access the BIOS. If the Bios is still not accessible, the problem is in the motherboard or processor. 

Then, we connect the additional elements one by one to the motherboard and each time we try to access the Bios. Finally, the PC is not started with its OS on the disc, but with a ” CD or USB Live key “. If all goes well, the problem of the PC is potentially in the hard disk that it will be necessary to test it and treat it separately.

In our experience, the only component to question is the RAM. It can deteriorate over time, or simply clean the Wikipedia connectors with a known product specially designed to regenerate electrical contacts.

In many cases, removing the components and putting them back would allow the PC to function properly provided that any malfunction of the hard drive is ruled out. For this reason, a test with “Live CD or USB key” can resolve the issue.
