Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Clicking sound from lacie hard drive can i fix it.... I know the drive is dying or dead, i just want to be able to save as much data as possible


Answers :

You're right, the hard drive is dying, you need to get an external hard drive and dump the entire contents onto it, or if you have another pc, you can network them and dump the files onto the other pc. ( personally, I recommend the former, you can now get external hard drives from 250 to 500 Gb quite cheaply )

I have a toshiba Satellite laptop. I recently encounted a virus and was prompted to download a anti-spyware. I did this and then was required to re-boot the computer.
