Hp dv6000 hard drive problem?


Jul 24, 2005
Exact model is dv6135nr. Seems like the hard drive is dead not sure. I would like to see if it's fixable or not. Everything is posting but then goes to f2 to resume or f10 for setup. F2 says initializing link failed. F10 goes to bios. I can't run a diagnostic for the hard drive. I have a lot of stuff that's on here that I want to save and bring to another computer.

Anyone live near Vegas wanna try to fix it?

Before the computer was frequently BSODing. Computer is clean I keep them in great condition. But just recently it won't start up now. If it can't be fixed I still need the data off of it. Will the hard drive in a ziploc bag and put in the freezer trick work? I've done it with a desktop but never a laptop.

Any help appreciated. Sorry for the lack of grammar and punctuation.

You could try to put the hard drive in an external enclosure and running chkdsk on it with another computer. You can find a sas enclosure off of sites like newegg or amazon.
