Having problems with your Packard Bell Easy One Silver 2101 Notebook ?

Will rebooting my pc end up in the hard disc drive being wiped.


Answers :

Hard drives will not get erased by a simple reboot. With that said, I would like to clarify that if you have some kind of hardware issue or virus then maybe, but under normal circumstances, no you should not wipe your laptop by simply rebooting it.

Good luck

Not really. if you do too many hard resets on the computer it could eventually lead to hard drive failure because the seek heads are not parked before the drive is shut down. however, a few times here and there are definitely not going to wipe a hard drive.
