Having made sure that you have your backups is great, however if you haven’t and the only time you realise is when all your data is on the laptop that is now not booting up, then you need to think about how to get that data back. Call us for help and we will do our best to help.
Slow computer, Freezes, BSOD (Blue Screen Of Death) These are very unspecific signs that can be caused by many different things. regardless of any of the potential causes it is recommended that you immediately make a backup
Corrupted Data If you’re finding files failing to open and are corrupted even though they saved without problems or you find suddenly are no longer there, you should get worried. This could again be due to a multitude of issues, it is also a typical sign for the beginnings of a hard drive failure.
Bad Sectors Bad sectors are areas of the hard drive that do not maintain data integrity. They are automatically masked by the operating system and thus hard to identify, especially if large amounts of the disk are currently in use. Bad sectors can occur on both traditional magnetic hard drives and modern solid-state drives. There are two types of bad sectors — one resulting from physical damage that can’t be repaired, and one resulting from software errors that can be fixed.
Strange Sounds When you hear strange noises coming from your hard drive, it may be too late already. A constant clicking sound (click of death) is caused by the head as it is trying to write data and recovers from errors in doing so. Grinding or screeching noises indicate that parts of the hardware are failing.
S.M.A.R.T. Data There are tools that aim to predict hard drive failure by reading the S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology) data that is recorded by the operating system.

“Mystery Tech are a good company to deal with and as a supplier, when the customer knows what they want my job is made much easier.”
Steve Cownley - Product Specialist Entatech
“I asked David to upgrade the hardware on my gaming PC, with new hard drives and graphics card, this should have been an easy job (for him, I couldn’t do it), however the old hard drive had corrupt sectors and the transfer of data including 12 years of digital pictures was made far more difficult. David persevered and against the odds set up the new system and transferred all the data without loss, correcting all the software problems and giving me back a high performance machine. Just for saving my digital pictures I would recommend him, the fact that his prices are fair and the service quick means that I highly recommend him.”
