  1. Hi all! Bought a HP notebook/laptop end of December 2015. Early December 2017 (10 days approx before 2 years from purchase) it became slow, and "Bad Block" errors were logged in the event viewer. chkdsk and SeaTools were used to fix these initially however more occurred over the next 4-5 months. 92+ sectors have been found and reallocated so far. Files have been corrupted by this issue. After discussions with Seagate support in May, they said that I had no warranty with them (which I knew), but if it was under warranty with these errors then they would look to replace the drive. Seag
  2. I am running Windows 8.1, 64 bit, and the C:drive is not showing in the disk defragmenter, although it did before. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
  3. Hi all, I bought my Dell Inspiron for £581 in October 2014. I had two callouts in the first two months to repair motherboard and wireless connectivity issues. Today the laptop has failed on restart with blue screen message "Unmountable boot volume". I have run startup diagnostic tests which indicate hard disk failure: Error code - 2000-0142 Validation - 85842 Looking this up on Dell diagnostic services returns the message: Hard disk drive running outside normal parameters - advise replacing disk drive. I believe that under the Sale of Goods Act I have a rea
  4. Hi. got a rather urgent question, as a summons has just landed on my doorstep. I bought a van in Nov 2013. The dealer said it was taxed to Jan 31 14, and MOT'd till Mid May 14. I gave the documents a once over, and everything seemed fine (Tax disk stated it was for a Renault, and up to Jan 31 14.) The van was a pup. Complete rubbish. It was in various garages from 19th December till 9th Feb. When it came out, supposedly repaired, it was as bad as ever, wouldn't start, etc. The 9th of Feb was a Saturday, so I couldn't tax it (I got the van back till about 2PM.) On Monday
  5. I bought the ext Seagate 1TB hard Disk in November 2011 so no warranty according to Seagate. It has its own power supply. The Hard Disk has been working fine up to Monday this week when without warning it packed up. The green light is on solid and I can hear the disc whirring, but Win 7 does not recognise or detect the disk. I tried it on another computer, but the same thing. I replaced the USB cord, but still no difference. I have some data on it, but not a lot that I need to recover. Is it possible for this to be done without being ripped off? Thank
