I have a problem with my Acer Aspire One D255, and now again with my Sony Vaio laptop.
The Acer fell about 1 foot 2 days ago. Since then the hard disk is not being detected in the BIOS. I opened the Netbook and removed it and re inserted the hard disk and it worked for like 5 minutes and stopped.
I followed the same thing and again it worked for 2 mins. Now the problem is that even to the slightest movement of laptop the hard disk is not being detected.
I tried swapping the hard disks of the Acer & Sony once to check if it was just a hard disk problem, and now the Sony is now experiencing similar issues with it's hard drive.
After re-inserting them they work for like 2 mins provided they are not moved even the slightest.
The hard disks in both the laptops are Toshiba. Are these hard disks dead? Do you think is there anything with these swapping of disks? Because I have very important data in both of them.
