Replacement hard drive after the failure of the HD, restore disc problem


The replacement hard drive should be the same capacity as the original hard drive.

If your goal is to use a SSD, then you will need to migrate the operating system with a working operating system software cloning.

Samsung, Corsair and other manufacturers sell kits of migration with usb connectors SATA that allow the cloning process work perfectly from a hard disk inherited a smaller SSD.

  • W510: How do I access my data from a failed hard drive after the failure of the motherboard

    I made a mistake and has paid for major .

    This error pouring a drink sweet on my laptop. I know, I know, my keyboard can and protect against damage caused by the spill, but it was a drink together. In any case, I panicked and shut down the system and it has upset and removed the keyboard. And be the impatient person that I am, I made what was probably the ultimate error. I do not give everything save a sufficient amount of time to dry and I tried to boot the system. There is my computer. Or at least I think.

    Symptoms: It began at the start, kept a beep, sometime just close and will start.

    In any case, I guess that my laptop went kaput. Now to the point of this thread. I had not been a recent backup and can't remember when the last backup was actually made. Assuming that my hard drive is ok, I want to get all my data, so I saw several options:

    -Send the system to a data recovery service where I will not pay less than $300, but probably 2 to 3 times what

    -buy an equivalent model laptop and put the HARD drive in there

    -by an external SATA hard drive enclosure and mount it via USB on another computer

    I bought a box external and assembled this evening. I had read about the data access of difficulty with a system non-Lenovo because of encryption of the data. I proved that by linking it to my work (a Dell) laptop and I couldn't access my data directories. If I have access to an another Lenovo Thinkpad, I'll be able to access the data if connected via USB? I had read that I can access the contents of disc hard if it is connected to an another Thinkpad, but I knew not that if it means that I have it connected via SATA connection or if there is work through the USB port.

    I'll appreciate any suggestions for accessing my data.

    Best regards!


    Thanks for the suggestions.

    I was able to recover my computer and all data on it.

    Just to describe what I have done, here are the details.

    Because of my concern about a failure of the motherboard, I bought a used/given new keyboard and an external SATA drive enclosure. I was not able to properly take possession of the car from my other laptop, but I was able to access the data in Mode without failure. With my data, I plugged the hard drive and the new keyboard in and started without problem.

    Thanks again,

  • Replacing the hard drive and the OS restore

    Hello, I have a Latitude E5520, who was clinging to the srartup with a Startup Repair going on forever.
    I have run the diagnostics ePSA and got the error Code 2000 - 0142 with validation 14116, which means that the disk hard is not working properly and should be replaced. This part is covered by my warranty and eligible for automated transmission. So all I have to do is to fill my delivery info.
    BUT I do not have a CD of the OS. I see that you provide online all the drivers etc, but I'm worried how I could restore the system with windows 7 OS without a CD or a restore CD. This is the replacement hard drive equipped with restoring the OS option? Or did he just totally blank?


    You also need to restore the media since you are still under warranty.

  • CS3 will not activate on the new hard drive after the failure of an old man.

    I had a hard drive fail on my Mac and got a new. The operating system before and after were OS 10.10 (Yosemite). I reinstalled CS3 and entered my serial number. It does not accept as a correct serial number. I sent support of Adobe. They said: Yes, it is the correct serial number. I asked what I could do, they said "Try the Forums." So here I am.

    The problem is probably that CS3 is not really supported in Yosemite.

    What others have experienced, is that If CS3 is already on the computer, you can continue to function, even if you have updated to Yosemite. But many have had problems installing CS3.

    Because CS3 is old and is not officially supported you unfortunately are on your own.

    Yes, you can replace the hard drive with another. Make sure the hard drive fits into the machine and is a SATA drive. Otherwise it shouldn´t be a problem.
    With regard to recovery: Yes, you can install Vista just by using the recovery CD. And NO, there are no special procedures that apply after replacing the hard drive.

  • Replacing hard drive on the Satellite A60-S159

    grateful for the help on the situation of the Hard disk on the Satellite A60-159 and advice on removal and replacement of the HARD disk.


    Well, I put t found any blankets or slots at the bottom of the unit. In this case, I think that he must remove the keyboard and some other covers.
    But if the warranty is valid you must contact the ASP for replacement because if you open the Notepad or if you remove the covers you lose the warranty.

    Good bye
