Having problems with your Fujitsu Siemens PC Laptops ?

Hi. I had my old laptop hard drive sent back to me after I broke the laptop screen and they couldnt fix it. I have bought a caddy but cant find all my pictures etc on the hard drive files, just programme set ups and IT stuff I dont understand!! Can you help please?


Answers :

Hi

When your screen broke...was it due to a fall or shock...

It could be possible that some sectors on the hard disk is damaged and would require opening up...

Try and looking out for any grinding or ticking noise

You might want to try and take your hard disk to a local computer shop to send to recovery centres although it could turn out to be a bit expensive...
I am assuming that you have another PC/laptop and that you can browse your old hard drive attached to it via the drive caddy.

If the operating system on your old laptop was Vista then I would expect you to find your files at:

<drive letter>\\Users\\your name\\
\015\012
\015\012If XP then I think (sorry, can't remember exactly):
\015\012
\015\012<drive letter>\\Documents and Settings\\User Profiles\\your name\\
