I have a problem with my pc. I came home from work and pc was on but on monitor said checking the monitor. I restarted it and it shows the sign of emachines and when it should start loading windows it stops and go back on same position again.After another restart it ask me if i should go to safe mode or safe mode online or from last okay point or if i want to pretend nothing happened.Whatewer i press it does the same, it starts writing letters and on half monitor turns of on first positon - checking monitor. I tried with recovery disc and it came to the end of line and did the same...i called service and guy opened it and said it's overheated and hard drive is dead. Is that true? I have some important files on can i get them out? Please help me

Have the service shop install a new hard drive and load your operating system on the new drive. Then put the old drive back into the PC as a "slave" drive. You should be able to salvage some or all of your files from the old hard disk. It is not completely DEAD - just in the process of dying. Quickly move you files to the new drive - before the old drive fails.
Thank you , hopefully they can save it
