Two days ago my HP Compaq laptop was undergoing hibernation mode after a days work.
Then, an unimaginable event took place.
While turning on my hp laptop using it’s own battery the screen went blank….
Checked on the bios settings – “Hard Disk not found”
Restarted the laptop…
“No bootable disk found, Please insert media”
The sudden rush of adrenaline spiked.
Racing against time, I had 50/50 chances
I watched in horror while dismantling the hard drive bay and saw it soaked and wet in water.
I was both:
Pessimistic – the laptop and it’s hard drive is fried, burned, short circuit to pieces.
Optimistic – open the hard drive bay and dried it with a piece of tissue paper and blow dry.
The following day…
Assembled the hard drive
bios check – hard drive is online
booting to windows 7 success!
I could not contain my joy. I was very happy!
A brilliant idea of hot blow drying the laptop and the hard drive saved the day.
now my laptop has recovered from a water dripping incident from a faulty air conditioner.
