Ooh, data recovery program, maybe I can use that and recover my shit too.

Id recommend using linux there are more extensive tools for recovery made for it, if this doesn't cut it.

If the drive works why not just copy what you need from it ?

well, that HDD had 2 partitions - 1. windows (windows, documents and settings, etc.) and 2. had all torrents, some games. 1st partition - unopenable through My computer. 2nd partition can be opened, but I can't copy anything from it :(

Program - Easus data recovery wizard

BTW, I will try linux (I have ubuntu on that HP) if windows recovery won't succeed.

Hope you can recover your data.

That laptop looks comical without its screen.

Nice work, time for a new laptop! =P

I've used EaseUS before, and it worked REALLY WELL, though my loss wasn't the result of damage, as I accidentally deleted and full formatted my main HDD!(There were a bunch of externals hdd hooked up, and I formatted the wrong one! :P)

If EaseUS doesn't work to your satisfaction, there are many other freeware data recovery programs out there you can try like as Rufee said :)

Update: Recovery with easus recovered 0 files. Then I used testdisk (ubuntu ver.) - recovered everything!

WTF?! WOW! I must get someone with Ubuntu to help me recover my stuff! That's great news! I hope I can recover my files though... :(

Well done mate! =P

I've tried a bunch of these recovery programs before, but I can't remember which.. I think I used Recuva and that didn't do shit, but a full version of EaseUS worked well--the freeware version didn't do anything I don't think.

I will definitely try TestDisk tho in the future tho! :)

testdisk is amazing and very easy to use, though it spits out oddly named files :(

testdisk is available for windows, too. But I used Ubuntu because ubuntu sees my HDD better than windows.

OK, so I finally replaced screen and it works. Not it's turn for the HDD.
