So my laptop BSOD while i was working halfway on my FYP
When restarted, heard the HDD "Beeping", and my bios didn't detect any hardisk, as shown in the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VRRj8L8y6QQ
Took out the Hard disk, a Western Digital Black 750GB:
Lifting up the label as shown so i could gain access to the screws.
The warning on the labels says will void warranty, but i saw my degree inside the hdd so i just open up
The screws are Tox size 6, these are my tools:
After opening, indeed, the head and actuator arm thingy is stuck:
I used the same tox 6 screw and manually spin the disk, while simultaneously use the small hook to pull the actuator arm and shifted it back into the parking position. Be careful not to scratch the disk.
I followed this youtube tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F5Y7BniaRXg
Pulled it back to parking position:
Closed the HDD back and Prayed hard.
Was relief to see the windows loading screen:
After backing up the data, im gonna change a new hardisk
at work so nv go listen but I'm glad you solved your problem~
HDD shouldnt have beeping sound leh, only the motor spin sound.
Time to change a new laptop.
Firstly Laptop with SSD doesnt need spin, so no such problem. 2ndly the flash drive only slightly bigger than a $1 coin. Retrieval shoooo simpur~~~
Tsk, want to post pic sooooo mafan so i'm not posting any pics
My laptop has a Msata slot. I will be getting a MSATA SSD to install the operating system, and then another typical laptop HDD to use as storage.
HDD at top left hand corner, i will install an SSD at the "SSD" location
Laptop still new, Year 2013....hopefully can tahan till i graduateEdited by MyPillowTalks 05 Jan `17, 3:03PM
