Is this computer fried? Can I get my data off it if so? The computer will load all the way up to showing desktop with icons. However, when I click a document, the hourglass appears, but nothing happens.

In continuing to test this computer, i am performing a Symptom Tree run test. Unfortunately, I keep getting error code 0F00:0244 in a great many blocks.

Hi

 

It sounds like the SMART Drive Short Test (DST) has failed. that usually means that there is physical damage to the hard drive and it should be replaced. Even if you found software that can fix it, it would likely be a temporary fix and the drive will continue to get worse and fail again.

 

Wish I had better news.

EDIT: DST may stand for Drive 'Self' Test instead of 'Short' but the error is consistent with a failed Drive Short Self Test. Not sure what that acronym stands for so I wanted to make that clear :)

Okay, I had a chance to look through my manuals about unit 1 status byte 75 and it can mean overheated and underpowered or simply busy and timed out.

 

I would recommend sending it to a professional lab for data recovery but if you really want to try it yourself, you could see if attaching it to another computer allows you to access it and get the data off of it. If that does not work then it will probably need to go to a lab because there is a hardware problem inside the drive itself.

Thank you so very much for that information. I played with it and waited for HOURS for it to open in safe mode. I was able to get necessary info from 2 docs. I will junk this now. Enjoy your New Year.
