I have a Gateway M-67 series laptop purchased in December 2008. I am at a total loss. Is my hard drive fried? I am a total novice at this kind of stuff, correction, I am less than a novice. My laptop is my sanity, please help.
Possible - but, unlikely. You will need to remove the hard drive - buy an adapter to connect it to another computer as an external drive. Test it and if not readable buy recovery software. You might find a computer repair shop to try but it will be costly.
