how to make dell recovery partition visible in my computer

[WPXperVideo id=79 ]hey everybody how you guys doing today because I’ve seen so many people having problems with the recovery petitions like like me I just moved over my Dell I wanted to have my original Dell installed because I wanted the original license and everything on my Windows 7 but I wanted to switch it over to to an SSD I couldn’t afford the expensive one and I tried installing from my recovery disks but it said that it wouldn’t work so what I did is I resized my partition main partition and I cloned the drive over but once I did that I wanted to shrink down the recovery partition because I can’t use it anyway so I wanted to shrink it down I didn’t want to delete it because the VCD is on that partition and if you delete that partition you’ll lose it moving the BCD I might do next time but this time I’m just going to show you how you can actually get to see in my computer your recovery partition and it’s very easy and I was thinking about it a lot of times and then I just thought you know it’s so easy it’s it’s easiest thing to do I’ll show you just by using disk part I went to just you do CMD in the search and run it as administrator run as administrator and then what I did is just disk part and it’s going to show me my my disk so I’m going to put in a command list disk is going to show you my disk so then I’m going to do them select disk one zero sorry and then we’re going to do list partition make sure you do the right command just do enter and it’s going to go meet three partitions the OEM is a very small partition so I’m not going to bother it’s just going to leave it over there the second one is partition to is primary and it’s its primary partition but that’s my Dell recovery partition you can see in megabytes because they already shrunk it down already but I still want to shrink it even more so how am I going to do this is I’m going to do select power tition – just make sure you select the right petition and then I’m going to do a sign so a sign automatically assigns the drive letter to that to the selected partition so we’re going to assign so this part successfully assigned to let the drive letter amount point so now I’m going to show you guys that I’m going to go to computer and there you go you got the recovery now I already deleted my files the win re and the whole thing so it’s only 3.1 and I’m going to shrink it down later but right now I just want to show you how to make it visible and now I’m going to show you how to – now once you finish that you want to remove your drive letter let’s say you want that doesn’t matter why so what you going to do is if you want to see if your petition is the one that’s been selected you just do list I’m sorry just list partition and the one day see a star next to it you know that’s the partition that’s been so partition is selected just to remove letter equals and one second let me just check it I can’t remember which other letter is so it’s e so I’m just going to do a E and that’s it and just do exit and you’re done go you see my computer is missing so that’s about it it’s very easy so you can do it all the time next time I’ll show you how to shrink it down or maybe I’ll move the BCD I’m not in the mood of doing it but I might do it so anyway see you guys but

Dell: Inspiron 14R-N4010 Hard Drive Replace / Dis-assembly – Part 2

[WPXperVideo id=68 ]all right so I know you couldn’t wait to get back to this I had a customer stop in he forgot his power supply yesterday and dropped it by and then you know a couple cause is that whatever blah blah blah so anyway look so I can ready take this apart all right at least take the motherboard out right here the Wi-Fi connects like a little slot chip thing and that’s what it’s hooked on right now so you have to try to gently pop that up let’s see there we go that’s out great you want to keep that in mind when you put it back together – and now we finally access the hard drive I know that’s what we are all impatient and waiting for well it’s a long enough and we really have to do to get this off of the motherboard there’s two screws to visit just to screws here on the side for the hard drive assembly stuff whatever and that’s really all there is to that part and that just slides right out of there now we just have to change the hard drive awesome this should be loose usually it’s like a tight fit but then you know you play with a little bit in there you guys good four of these two on each side of course and that’s uh-oh that those four screws keep them right there well whatever you want to place them that’s not right there hard drive up to the side that’s a that’s a good Drive it works it’s our test drive here we go to put the new Drive back take that out of its little plastic any stetic bag make sure this will go on in the right place how did this go again I forgot already of great memory like this if I do remember it correctly well to make sure to be folder go back on place I wonder are you here for my gaming videos or are you here from this video will you stick around for my gaming videos of me sucking at video games is it possible and I think that’s how it goes maybe yep that is exactly how it goes should I only not to move it anywhere from there but I mean I it you know whatever here we go now you can put it back together the fun part the most exciting part the part you tuned in for putting it back together okay so more [Music] on each side you know whatever it’ll be easier to work with cool that harddrive goes back into place why the did they create it like this in fact it would be great if there is designer commented on this why are you idiot and why did you design it this way not everybody is going to ship it back to Dao and why would you want to put your own technical people through this hassle it’s like you can possibly break many other things in the process of you know getting back to where you got to replace us at there should be a little panel here go look at other laptop designs there should be no reason have to take the entire motherboard out I might have damaged something in the process of this and I hope I did not I don’t think I did I don’t want to this goes back into place make sure it all lines up all that good stuff um I think that is good make sure this isn’t place down here let’s go yes let’s make sure this is all in here there we go now that should work let’s see there we go good it’s in place [Music] that should be in place let’s see about the rest of everything that doesn’t go in yet this nope this goes in next and putting it back together hopefully I can put it back together in a better record amount of time than I took it apart but also at the same time you do not want to rush this take your time take some patience take a chill pill whatever the works for you and put this together correctly so that it still works when you turn it back on I was glad it was working when I last put it together so let’s make sure it works again this time when I put it together this time as I said before all these screws are the same size so they should all be the same size that may or may not fool you I don’t think a screw goes there not screws don’t go everywhere on this board actually I think some of them actually caught from the bottom as well and that’s more than likely a case because they obviously have to hold on the top panel stuff that goes up here usually where it indicates stuff like these numbers be 8 9 7 B 4 B 3 B 6 B 5 B 1 B 2 B yeah that’s usually where the screws go I did actually find it kind of interesting that um when I was looking into how to work on this thing because you know before we work on a customer’s computer if it’s a model we have not played with before we want to make sure we’re taking it apart and putting it together correctly so this screwed right here the ground for the LCD screen I want to assume it actually wanted the person who made the forum the forum post about it documenting it working on it this screw was completely stripped it was stripped he really you know it was I mean he still worked on it afterward but that screw it was just a mess to deal with for that person but he got it working good for him his girlfriend’s happy but I don’t know that person personally myself it was just you know something that came up with Google and pointed me to a forum about it documented with pictures that hey buddy where’s your videos this will be my first video of doing something like this other videos I’ve taken apart stuff I’m going to do an unboxing video let me see that is all the screws for that I think I did not miss anything that’s he did i I do not think I did that’s awesome tricky part here the drive I trouble getting it out without pulling the panel stuff off this is ready to go back on so that’s what I’m going to do now like I said you want to watch how everything goes back together too

How to remove files from a broken laptop

[WPXperVideo id=67 ]hey everyone I’m going to show you today how to get those important files off of your laptop once it no longer turns on or works I don’t let you guys know that you can always take it to a service shop and pay those fees but why would you do that with such a simple fix I personally want to allow my personal information with those service shops just because of what I’ve seen in the news especially with women when they have those racy pictures taken and shared and post it online but regardless it goes both ways as I’ve also seen illegal information being caught on these hard drives and reports the police so in either case is up to you and I’m just here to show you knowledge is power let’s talk about my laptop here so I have a regular Sony laptop that has conked out on me what’s happened here is there’s a loose screw in there shorted out the motherboard and no longer works regardless the ending result is our button doesn’t work try taking out the battery try it opening up the motherboard tried disconnecting all connections in there tried also removing the battery for the bias which is the battery that pretty much keeps your your motherboard settings that such as the time on your laptop anyway so my last resort now is going to be take the hard drive out and so I’m able to access the information on it I have some important school files so the first thing you want to do is go over to your nearby electronic shop buy something like this is going to be your hard drive enclosure this is worth about eight to twelve dollars no more no less don’t pay any more of that and you’re looking for if you have a typical laptop of these days you’re looking for a site SATA to USB Drive and upon opening it up it comes with several things here here’s your leather case manual and here’s the meat and potatoes of the product so this is going to be where we’re going to put our hard drive inside also there’s also some nice knickknacks such as screwdriver and the assortments of screws you might need this USB there’s what’s funny about this is that there’s a two ends here two USB ports into one and that’s some hard drives require more power moving on so first we find access to our laptop here we know that this is where our hard drive is you guys don’t know it usually is separated enclosure they try to make it easy if your laptop doesn’t make it that easy just go ahead and take out all these screws out here and this panel will come off completely so if I already removed these two screws so I can come in take this off and you’ll have two more screws to take off on the top and all you’ll have to do here is you notice this connected right here we just slide the hard drive off to the side this way like so and you have a plastic tab here you can just pick it up like this and this would be your hard drive so this happens to be your standard 2.5 inch hard drives 320 gigs not too shabby so we’ll have to do here is we’ll open this box and this is our hard drive and close your box there we go and this is going to be our adapter here this is what we’re going to connect to the hard drive alright so here we have our adapter we’re ready to put this together there’s only one way you can fit side if you try the other way it just wouldn’t look right would it but before we do so we have this enclosure put in by my laptop that I need to take off we just need to take off a couple screws here so we grab our Philips head give it a couple turns save our screw very good then we can take off the enclosure and you can kind of see now why they probably put the enclosure here just probably protect this area and also give it a mounting bracket well regardless what I’d like to do so I don’t lose my screws is I’d like to put them back on where they came from in case I ever needed them in the future I decided to take my laptop to get serviced or replaced and regardless I like to keep my screws alright moving on all right so now we have our bear hard drive excellent let’s connect our adapter fits nice and snug we have our hard drive enclosure does not matter what way you put it in this way or this way as this hole is symmetrical with this one you just pop it in like so excellent and we try to get in the bottom piece good our last steps the box comes with these little screws we’re just going to put these in each every hole to make this nice and sound you like the easiest way is going to be put it on the screw like so the head is magnetized so it will stick on there and then just try to aim and once you feel like you got in the threads just finish screwing it in till is pretty much flush you all right good so this should there should be no rattling inside it should be a solid case now with your hard drive inside and here we should have our mini part this is where we’re going to connect to our computer now for the moment of truth see here I already have my USB to mini-usb hooked up here and gonna connect it like so power is blinking good let’s check with the computer sets automatically computer has found this the disk so I just say open folders if you guys want to find the files that you’re looking for their word per se on your desktop usually that’s organized with Windows XP under users and when I would be this is my profile and here are all my folders here’s the information I’m looking for now specifically was on my desktop all these files here and here are my all my school folders well again thank you very much for this thank you for paying attention and hope to have more videos out there for you

Dell: Inspiron 14R-N4010 Hard Drive Replace / Dis-assembly – Part 1

[WPXperVideo id=24 ]hello and how is it going at this time instead of destroying a power supply I have to swap the hard drive on this Dell something something I remember the model off the top of my head Inspiron n4 0 1 0 the fun part about this one is well all done let me get back to it the hard drive on this come to customers computer was going bad it didn’t completely go bad but it was on its way it was slow you know really didn’t want to cooperate whatever so it it’s not completely dead but it will be dead soon enough so skip it let’s just save the hassle swap the hard drive so cool let’s get started um yes remove the battery now the fun one about this one is already unlocked front one about this one is ah it’s not like traditional computer stuff it’s uh let me see there’s only one back panel back here and that only has the RAM yeah only the RAM in that slot and oh that’s it now normally I wouldn’t even care about recording this I guess but there’s no disassembly videos doing this out there so I might as well be that one cool guy that does that and helps out other technicians potential technicians do-it-yourselfers whatever the yeah you don’t have to worry just take all these screws out of the bottom they are all the same size so mixing them up don’t worry about it the only ones that are different back here are the ones for the battery but those are much smaller you won’t mix those up if you whatever so just remove all the screws shoot this thing squeaky that’s what you get with these things though come on grab it there we go I didn’t quite want to break the bad news of the customer but I had to but for how much it it gave a hassle of taking it apart I’m just trying to say it’s more than 50 books although we’re going to stick with 50 books because hopefully it works afterward because it does work now we put in a test drive to test it to make sure that’s it before we go ahead and be like okay we have to replace the drive but yeah we do have to replace the drive there’s however many screws back here I’ve not counted them you just got to take them all out don’t worry about anything else just take them all out let’s see yes there was one two or three four five six seven eight nine ten eleven twelve thirteen fourteen maybe I’m bad maybe I’m wrong maybe it’s more than 14 maybe it’s less 15 I cannot yet take the drive out now okay it seems them on to the fun part that’s mate that’s not four step the fun part now I got a pop all this out I’m trying to remember whether I pop I think I took the keyboard out first it’s been a good few days since I last did this but the fun part is okay make sure it’s safe or remove that I like this this is convenient it has a little tab that holds the ribbon cable in pop that out ever so gently set that off to the side where you can forget about it in fact let’s forget about that drive okay there’s no screws immediately in this vicinity well let’s go ahead and get all this out and taken care of there’s this little plastic piece let’s set that off right there it’s not going anywhere and take out these more ribbons they are there’s three here in this little spot right here lift the tabs up ever so gently you can easily and effortlessly break those out of their little slot thingies and you can lose them and you do not want to do that especially if it’s a customer which of course this is this case I already disassembled this once because there is a drive in here it was it just a test drive we advised them you know what if you want to you can have it with a small little 40 gig Drive I think it was 40 gig and you know be done with it but these days you want the drive size so ever so gently there’s tabs around here just gently pry them out don’t force anything you do not want to break anything and you know just try to gently right out which I’m going to now I am in the process of doing want me to concentrate for a moment there we go almost there are we almost there I sure hope so this should all come out ever so there’s tabs up here now we have to pop out I have to pop out we all can do this together I almost feel oh yes I almost forgot about that one here we go screws right here make sure to remove all of these screws not some of them all of them there’s these ones back here in the battery area I almost forgot about those what you want to do do not lose your screws you know try to organize them and try to remember how they all go back in place you don’t wanna you know botch it up and those screws and says I don’t really know if I have to remove these or not but I really don’t think so but you know what I just want to be on the safe side while I’m down here I want to make sure that you know it’s all good okay there we go and cool that should be good the front top pad bezel whatever should come out with no issue it on that let’s ensure that and there we go awesome and it looks like one of the screw things here I have to find out where it was came out so you always do want to watch for that as well I’ll find it when we put it back together set that off to the side you don’t need to dabble with that for the moment and here we’re at the coming to the last portion kind of not really there’s always more to go there was something holding this in place but there should nut but not be anything seems it was just that top panel so that’s off to you also want to watch for the screws that are here because after I got it all back together I realized hey I have extra screws three right here make sure they go back there when you put it back together because I forgot to do it when I last put it together this time I should remember correctly I sure hope I was out to take it back part so don’t let me forget now let’s see how to organize the rest of this and here we go I try to keep it all organized all nice neat whatever now the dreadful part about this just be really careful I mean I can’t emphasize that enough because you know it’s easy because this is whoever designed this model Dell the what is it I want to try to recall 2/10 at 1:04 can’t emphasize that enough idiot designer he’ll eat to swap a hard drive you have to make it this complicated sir that’s that’s retarded as hell I can’t emphasize that enough okay so anyway we got 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 screws we have to take out of this portion of beat board so let’s set those aside in a place that we won’t forget them these are all the same sizes I recalled only one that’s different is this one up here that is a ground for this LCD screen but really I think that stays with the little thing that it comes with so you really won’t you you have I keep track of that one because it’s going to stay all together you right this these screws right here maybe a little different maybe not completely certain about that one but hey all these get removed because you cannot you have to take this heatsink out here because otherwise it holds the board and a like overlaps the board so to remove the board you have to remove that not heatsink the the cooling fan and it helps keep the board in place I suppose but really still I should not have to remove the motherboard just to replace a hard drive it should be no ok here we go again remove the the cooling fan set that off to the side to forget about it for the moment um I don’t think anything else is holding this board in place so let’s get to the fun part I have a customer so I shall be right back

How to fix a broken hard drive Beeping noise or clicking RECOVER GET DATA BACK FOR FREE! BEST TRICK

[WPXperVideo id=15 ]hello everybody this is Abraham with no shirt Computer Services and today I’d like to show you a hard drive that I think has heads stock on a platter the reason I know that is from the noise that it makes if we plug it in you can hear the beeping noise that’s basically the motor is trying to start the platters and it can’t and it’s most likely because the heads are stuck on a platter it does happen occasionally I have seen it it could also be that the bearing is stuck or seized and platters are not turning you’d get the same noise so for this one we would need to open this hard drive now this hard drive does not have much of anything that’s important on it so we don’t have to use any cleanroom or anything and I’m sure it’s going to work once we get the heads unstuck so we’ll just take the screws out there’s one more screw hidden somewhere beneath the label just kind of feel it and get under it okay um skips here pry it open alright so as we can see the heads are stuck on a platter I’m not sure why this would happen but I have seen this happen several times so how do we get the heads off the platter and into the park position okay the best thing to do is turn the platter so let’s see we can use our trusty screwdriver and it’s not going to like it Bubba all right so the heads are off most likely this hard drive will start and it will most likely work there is some dust particles on drive on the platters I’m not too concerned about those because once the hard drive starts spinning it’ll centrifugal force will get rid of those particles and before the head actually starts moving on to the hard drive now heads do seem to be stuck on a hard drive as if they’re glued reason for that is because the head surface is polished extremely smooth hard drive surface is polished extremely smooth it’s we have two surfaces that are very smooth they get stuck on each other all right check on our computer we’ll plug in our adapter SATA to USB and as you can see the hard drive is mounting I don’t hear the beeping noises there it is scanning we’ll just cancel that folder yeah there you go the hard drive is working okay do not be afraid to open a hard drive if it’s if it’s not critical I’d say if if you have a million dollar business that’s on a hard drive and it’s probably best to leave it to people who can give you some kind of insurance I’ve done this so many times it seems to be working just fine but if you only have personal stuff and if it’s while you’re opening it or while you’re moving the heads off the platter you accidentally damage them you’re not going to hit your head over with whatever and say why did I do this you probably want to take it to a lab but if you have a hard drive that’s making that noise you haven’t used it for god knows how long and it’s just something on there that you might want to use I’ll go ahead and open it you’re not going to damage it I’ve seen some people on YouTube saying that you have to have these screws to specific torque I think it’s baloney as long as you get them tight the hard drive will work so as you can see the hard drive is working in fact I can put it back into a computer and it’ll work just fine I do not trust open hard drives if I have opened it I would never use it as a primary hard drive I could use it as a backup hard drive basically if it if it contains a second copy of something that I have I’m okay you know I can use this hard drive but overall maybe for test purposes the hard drive is okay maybe for playing purposes but never ever as a primary hard drive that runs your computer so once you open the hard drive be sure it will not work the same as it did when it was assembled at the factory or you know brand new hard drive so I hope this was informative and helpful and as always have a good day

How to Recover Data From a Non-Bootable (dead) Computer

[WPXperVideo id=9 ]hey guys how you doing it’s Steve on the Google brew hey so what do you do when your laptop or your desktop fails and you want pictures or music or some other important data off the hard drive in this edition of the guru brew I have an Acer Aspire in here for repair and the customer wants the photos off the machine so I’m going to have to physically take the hard drive out of the machine put it in a special rig that I have get its pictures and then put his hard drive back in the machine redo the operating system from scratch and then put his pictures all back on that’s coming up in this edition the guru brew hangout for that okay well here’s the Acer Aspire that I told you about that we’re going to be working on just for reference this is an Acer Aspire five two five oh be z87 three it has Windows seven it’s an AMD processor so I’ve already gone through checking this hard drive and the operating system is so damaged from a virus that it’s just not worth the time to try anymore to try to log into this operating system so what I’m going to do is physically take the hard drive right out of this machine right now put it in this little Ric that I have over here I’ll explain all this in a minute copyist pictures off the hard drive and then we turn them back on here as soon as this is restored here’s what the front of it looks like so before you fool around with laptops you you should always remove the battery that’s just something we should do there’s usually a little picture on the cover of what’s underneath it and this has a little picture of a ram stick and a hard drive so that’s my first food okay so there’s the hard drive poking up at me here right in the middle this little thing here’s your Wi-Fi okay over here is your RAM okay put your memory and this little battery right here is your bios battery and that keeps track of your time of date clock to keep it updated when there’s no power to this laptop that little battery keeps your time for you just like a watch battery so most of the newer laptops are SATA design so I can almost guarantee this one is going to be a SATA sometimes their screws hold and hold them in and sometimes there’s not you just have to kind of look at them figure it out so the hard drive after it took that screw out right through the slides this way we’re just going to set them left on the side of your person so usually okay this is the hard drive out of that laptop and it’s a 320 gig and the only reason why I took it out is to get big data the user data off your like I said in the beginning first thing I have to do is take this metal caddy off here and it’s just these screws you can see pulled it in on each side you can see that this bracket has like a little plastic membrane so we’re just going to put that aside for now – okay well this little Frankenstein thing is what we use to copy drives data this is a USB enclosure that my boy bought some time back that had a hard drive in it and you could read a hard drive through USB here and since then we’ve taken the cover off and I don’t think the covers been back on over a year because we use it for this purpose now but you can slide a a small SATA hard drive from a laptop in there where you can go with the full size and you can see how it just sets in there what so this is how we’re doing it were physically taking the laptop from or I’m sorry the harddrive from the laptop that was giving us problems and we’re just going to copy it with my machine here I’ve got my HP here ready to go I’m going to go ahead and turn it on and get ready to copy these files onto some removable memory so hang on for that in the big PC power supply on the bottom is just an old power supply that we use now to run this box because it needs to study 5 volts and this did come with a wall wart but my boy gave it away so that are sometimes so anyway we’re using this one here so this is the shop laptop that we use here for copying files we’ll run stuff like that it just kind of sits here does nothing a lot of times so you can see the enclosures on looks like we have some activity so it looks like the drive is now being read by the operating system this laptop is older HP Babylon and it has XP on but runs just fine I recently restored the operating system raka it was roughly slow ok let’s go ahead and we’re just going to poke around inside this folder for the hard drive and see what I have here there’s a user file here so he has two folders he has one that says Morgan and one that says public and I bet you I know why he has a virus on this machine that first one was sa frostwire isn’t that like a pure sharing network but you can always get viruses from I think so anyway that’s what I’m going to copy here’s those pictures so this is what he wanted me to save for him so yes so let’s go ahead and back this up and check how much space we’re going to need on the hard drive I’m backing up til I get to the users and I’m going to go ahead and just do a right click on this and go to properties and see how much space that says I need it’s adding it up I apologize for the filming of the screen I know it’s not a good idea to do but in these kind of cases I really don’t have a another way to do it so I know I’m going to need at least a gig and a half maybe two gigs maybe more I’m going to let this run a second until I calculate so much I need and then I’ll be back ok so it’s done estimating and it came out with like 37.9 gig so I’m going to go ahead and just put it on my desktop here I just made an empty folder I’m going to go back over to the folder of the hard drive which is here our users right click I’m going to copy that ok then I’m going to open up my empty folder that I made and paste this then paste it in I’m probably gonna have to wait till this is all done and then copy this over onto another external I hate to do that but I don’t have a thumb drive that’s 40 gig big so that’s all I have to do it alright we got a ways here for this copy it’s going to take a while ok well I’m gonna leave you with that that is how you would take a hard drive out and get the data off and then copy it on to another device in this case I just copied it onto the out layout and then eventually when I fixed the computer I hooked the laptop back up to it and removed the data back over and the customer was happy I wanted to show you these enclosures I have one of them open on the table and this is the exact one that was open but this is what it looks like when you buy them we paid about 45 dollars for this one this is a USB SATA Drive it’s just an enclosure normally these don’t come with hard drive and although we paid 40 or 45 we just recently looked this up and you can get it for as low as $20 which is a great value we also have this is the SATA model we also have an IDE model for those older drives and this is what that enclosure looks like you can see this has had a rough life most of the time we don’t have these cases on them we just take them right out of enclosure like this let’s see the hard drive just sit in there there’s a power cable and then it slides up onto these pins see there and this is also a USB device here so there’s one other way of course and that would be with a desktop computer if you have a ribbon cable inside such as this you can put a drive on each of these these pins and then you can copy it that way too so those are a few ideas for you to go ahead and copy your data get it off the drive so your customers are happening so thanks for watching this video if you find it
