Use Fujitsu Hard Disk Recovery as the Cost Effective Data Recovery Option


I am having serious difficulties with a Fujitsu Lifebook laptop which won’t allow me into the OS. What happened was that I was starting everything up as usual, nothing seemed wrong and I was quite happily setting up the system to run. Then, BIOS suddenly asked me for a password. I don’t remember putting one in, so I typed the Windows ID password, assuming that was what it wanted. Well, it was the wrong password, and no mistake, because BIOS suddenly locked me out of the system. When I try to get in, I get an error message saying that the system is disabled, and I can’t do anything about it. I have rebooted repeatedly, and tried to enter BIOS in a number of ways, but all unsuccessful. Of course, as the computer can’t go through BIOS, it can’t get into the OS, so I am effectively prevented from using the laptop. I have a lot of data on the drive that I really want, quite badly.


I have a moderately old Fujitsu Siemens Mini laptop, which is displaying all the signs of laptop death. Firstly, I have had a problem with Windows 8 OS. In the end, I decided that I would just risk losing the data, so I backed up the data to a 16gb usb stick and then reformatted the hard drive and reinstalled the operating system. System is now working without any problems but I have realised that the backup of my data on usb stick is all corrupt. Can the data be recovered from a reinstalled hard drive?

Use Fujitsu Hard Disk Recovery as the Cost Effective Data Recovery Option

Internal hard disk failure can be highly stressful, particularly if it is a work computer that becomes unusable due to problems with the hard drive. Even though Fujitsu hard disks are very reliable they are still susceptible to a number of errors and types of damage. If you have large amounts of data on your hard drive that you are at risk of losing your first action should be to give one of our Fujitsu data recovery experts a call. We can provide you with a diagnosis over the phone using our years of experience in the data recovery business. We can also outline various data recovery options so that you have a good idea of how much it will cost, both in terms of time and money, to get all of your data back.

We have extensive experience in recovering data from all types of Fujitsu drives. Some examples of drives that we have dealt with are the MHV2120BH, MHV2080BH, MHY2250BH and the MJA2250BH. We maintain an awareness of any new products that are brought out so that we can be prepared to work on the latest drives as and when required.

The problems that you might have with your Fujitsu drives that are most easily explainable, and also the most easily dealt with, are user errors that lead to deletion of files from the system and also errors occurring in the operating system.

Accidental file deletions can, at first sight, seem to be permanent actions but in fact the hard drive is not working that hard and in fact it is only the pointers that are affected by a basic file deletion. Even fully formatting a hard drive will not remove the data from it, it will only strip out all of the pointers and tag all sectors of the disk as being ready for overwriting. Therefore it is possible to retrieve data that has no pointer by utilising specialist software.

Errors in the operating system are slightly more serious as a damaged operating system can potentially cause corruption to the data that is also stored on the hard drive. If the hard drive is partitioned so that the operating system and the data are kept in separate areas of the disk then restoring the operating system is less risky than on a non-partitioned system. If your disk is not partitioned then you would be wise to get your data backed up before attempting to restore or replace the operating system.

More complex recovery processes are required if the damage is of a more serious nature, which may be the case if there is a firmware failure within the hard disk. Other possible sources of damage are electrical surges through the disk and also infection by a virus. These can all cause corruption of the files that require repairing before they are accessible again via the standard software that opens them. Hard drives can also be damaged through impact or also from being exposed to extreme temperatures.
