    Hi,

    The hard disk of my laptop T510 has carshed. This means that when I start my laptop, it does not boot up. It displays an error message that it is unable to access the hard disk. I tried putting that one into another laptop and it was unable to detect this hard disk. It is considering it as a raw disk.

    Let me know how to resolve this issue.

    Thanks,
    Nirleo

    Well if the hard drive has truly failed, you should test the drive with the hard drive manufacturer's diagnostics to verify that, then you would need to purchase and install a new drive and reload Windows.

    But I do not want to lose my data. Is there any way that I can put in the missing boot files.

    From what you have described you're not missing boot files therefore this is not an option.

    Therefore you will need to follow the process Triple6 (Rob) stated

    Find the manufacture of the hard drive (label on the hard drive will tell you) go to their website and download the diagnostic utility. Make a bootable USB or CD with it and run the long scan. This will give you information as to what it wrong with the hard drive.

    If you are luck this will be fixable... If not you will require a new hard drive. Data recovery options can be discussed after you have ran the manufacturer's diagnostic utility.

    If you didn't want to lose your data you should have backed it up.
