If you have files that you really want to recover and the drive has stopped turning, you could try the freezer method of recovering data. http://www.datarecoverypros.com/hard-drive-recovery-freeze.html
As it's a laptop you will need an external 2.5" enclosure to plug the HD into.

Thanks Poliss.  Yes, I have a 2.5" caddy, and I can hear/feel the disks spinning, so that website says not to freeze it.  I think I'll have to send it off for recovery, as I've always been successful with using caddies before.

What really annoys me is when you buy something from abroad e.g. America and you pay the postage at that end.
When it arrives in the UK the Customs and Excise hold it to check the value and the Post Office then charge another 8.00 to collect and deliver it at this end.

.

I've ordered quite a few times bits from Japan and China on Ebay and have never been charged! Maybe I was just lucky...  ;D
Model railway stuff doesn't generally attract much attention it seems!  :smiley-laughing:

Always happens when you alter what you've written and then don't proofread properly.  :-\

So, Royal Mail charge 8.00 for filling the import form, but in their Parcelfarce guise they charge 13.50 if the package is sent by the EMS service. Is the form 1,000 extra pages or what???

Its not that the form has 1,000 pages - its because they have to hire staff who can read and write properly!

Hi,

Took delivery of our brand new car last Tuesday and some t**t ran into the side of it today while it was parked in the street.

Am I p***ed or what  >:( >:(

Incessant reminders of updates for your computer that you ignore for as long as possible before they drive you mad, then click "OK to download", find the update takes 3 days to download + restart your computer. GRRRRRRR
TV adverts that shout at you. They know who they are - double glazing, flooring, outdoor clothing/tents etc. Where's the mute button.....................
