Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Iomega Screenplay multimedia player with integral HDD Drive won't boot (just makes peeping noise), PC doesn't recognise external drive, but splash screen shows on TV.


Answers :

Useless wasting any more time on this.
Hard drive beeping is always motor failure or head failure.
All data are lost and the internal hard drive must be replaced.
Data recovery must be done using a facility called 100 clean room, and wont cost less than $800 or so.

See the link below if you need more detail and data recovery, that is the facility I use, as I do not have a clean room of my own: Recovering data from hard disk drives with motor failure ..
