Thread: BIOS does not detect HDD

    BIOS does not detect HDD


    I have a hard drive that has apparently failed. It will not detect in the bios when i master or slave it. I really need to get the data off it and am wondering if there is any way i can get it when the bios will not detect it? I have tried installing it in another computer and it will not detect either. It is getting power cause it spins and clicks. Help appreciated.

    If you cant get it recognised in the BIOS I'm afraid there's really no hope of DIY recovery. Would think the only hope would be for a specialist firm to rebuild the platters - and sadly that's big bucks.
