I have HP dv6600 laptop. Its windows crashed recently. After that I tried to restore a backup image created by self-image. But unfortunately backup file was corrupted and C: partition was rendered unusable. I tried to install OS anew after formatting C: drive. Again it did not succeed as the installation media had corrupted files :'( After this I tried to install OS with fresh media but the hard disk was not detected. I tried to put it into a external hard disk case but it gave beeps (not the disk motor kind of sound, but kind of when ram is not properly inserted into its slot).
I tried to put it into another desktop system (Its a SATA disk) but it hangs the system (it is running Windows 7).
On both the desktop and laptop it is detected and correctly recognized by BIOS. What are my options to get it working or at least get any data back from it?
