No, it is not recognizing it at all
This is the second computer I've tried it on. The first one was my work computer with a pretty hefty firewall and needing permissions to install anything. I had our local IT person helping with it and it wasn't recognized there either. Local IT person said that sometimes he just had to try and try and try again in order for it to work - that it didn't always work right away. I moved to my home computer to see if it was the permissions issue and now am getting the same result. Should I just keep trying?
ok - be back in a few!
ok, i did all that and plugged back into port - still doesn't recognize
well - Is it safe to pull a hard drive out of a working laptop? I do have a friends here but I don't want to mess it up for her
ok, give me a couple of minutes and i'll try that - just plug in and if it recognizes the drive, then it's my hard drive that is forever gone? :(
ok, i'm not understanding on this other laptop how to remove the hard drive? :( It is an HP. If I do find it, do I have to first remove the battery before removing the hard drive?
checking with my hubby - i think we have a backup hard drive here somewhere - be back in a bit
sounds like the only option is the other laptop do you know where the hard drive may be on this thing?
Well, it's a Pavilion g6 - does that tell you what you need?
the screws will not come out of this laptop to take the cover off. I'll have to wait until I can find a hard drive when I am in the office or something - I don't want to mess up this laptop
i have one more quick question for right now - the steps you had me do to this computer - i think it disabled my virus protection - do I need to go back in and enable something?
