Having problems with your HP Compaq nc6320 Notebook ?

My Compaq nc6320 was damaged and I think I got cheated on repair

\015 My Compaq nc6320 (hp) was damaged and said that the optical drive wasn't working or was missing, I took it in and had it repaired and the worker replaced the hard-drive for extra, it didn't say the hard-drive was bad, and now I'm not sure if I was cheated or not...if I remove my current hard-drive will it erase the memory or damage my computer? Help is appreciated\015

Answers :

If you take the hard drive out when the power is on you can damage it. Some laptops have HDD's that are easy to get to, others not so much. Shutting the computer off clears the memory in the computer. Removing the hard drive does not wipe the hard drive's contents (doesn't matter if you are talking about laptop or desktop). If you drop it or damage it then your data can become unreadable. You can buy adapters to hook your old drive up to your computer externally to attempt to get data off. What you will want to look for is a laptop (2.5) hard drive enclosure. I have several USB ones that I use for both laptop and desktop drives. \015\012\015\012I think you were ripped off. It is a bad business move to change something without getting the customers approval first. If it was in my shop and I determined your hard drive was bad I would have called you first and gave you your options (do nothing - get a cheap one - get a big one for future expansion). Did they give you your old drive back? They should have given you options for getting your data off if they did not transfer your data over. I would look for a new repair person.
If you remove your current hd you do not lose any memory as far as I know and you can later access it if you have the necessay cables to either connect it to a desktop or laptop..I am 99.9% sure that you can do it for desktops but I can remember seeing anything for laptops..Google and ebay would help to solve this..
