  1. Hello

    After a power loss today my laptop, or more correctly the hardisk stopped to live. I can start the laptop, enter setup and run diagonostic tools.
    But when I try to scan the disk, I get an error. As well when I try to format it. It looks like its corruptet. Cant access it either.

    Anyone have a good tip for this?

    Thanks in advance

    What errors? "Can't access" means what?

    You can use the diagnostic tool from the hard drive manufacturer to test the disk for permanent damage.
