How to check the health of your hard drive
How to check if your hard drive is dead
All computers some type of Hard drive for storage of your personal data, so we need to ensure the drives are always operational. the first step to troubleshoot if your hard drive is dead is when your computer is booting up and you get a no boot device found. this normally means your motherboard cannot find a drive with an operating system installed. This is normally caused by the boot sector or boot partition accessible which means that the hard drive has some kind of fault. so this error is only fixed by installing a new drive and reinstalling the operating system.
now these are the signs to look for is your hard drive is not dead but the health is failing.
first when the computer boots up and you get an S.M.A.R.t disk error. this normally happens when a system event is triggered on the drive itself signaling that the drive is has encountered a critical error and drive failer is near. after a smart disk error you should allways try to image/copy the data over to a new drive before its too late.
another problem is when your computer is booting slowly, slow booting could be because the computer is having problems reading the data from the drive leading longer read time. with this step you would need to run a third part software to check if your drive has and errors or drive warnings.
we at nerd repair center normally use the HD Tune trial to get the smart data and find out the drive health.
once the software has be installed all need to is check the status and if there are any warnings the its time to replace the drive.
If you are reading this, you may have accidentally or intentionally damaged the screen of your TV (LCD, LED, Plasma). Now if you are looking for a solution to fix this problem, check out our recommendations:
First: If your TV does not have a cracked screen and the problem has just appeared on its own, you may be able to fall back on the TV manufacturer’s warranty. If your TV screen has developed black spots, vertical lines, small dots, unusually bright pixels, fading, distorted shading, or color issues, you may be able to use the warranty. Be sure to have your purchase receipt, and take note of the model number and serial number on the back of your TV. In case that your warranty has expired, you might contact us with any questions related to your TV repairs.
Second: If your flat-screen; TV has the dreaded vertical lines, half of the screen has turned darker, the screen is cracked, or the screen is broken, this can be repaired but may cost more than you paid for the complete TV. If your screen is cracked or broken, you can try replacing the screen, LCD, Plasma, or LED part.
