Now it happened...

My Laptop finally kicked the bucket. (-__-)
I'm out of the picture for now.

I can't access neither the HDD nor the CD drive.
This time it's a hardware problem which I can't simply repair or replace. Because I can't afford it, even a used machine is out of my reach.

So ...I enter now an unwanted hiatus.

If you want to support me and help me to get the money together for a Laptop (not a new one) Contact me or use simply the donate button on my page.

for the time being maybe you could try to put the hdd in an external hdd case and access it on another computer, you should be able to retreive your datas.

@ Thibaut Guilet
Thank you. ;)
That's exactly what I did ...the HDD isn't damaged fortunately. But the laptop won't recognize any drive which is connected to the motherboard directly. It seems to be a problem with the controller or something like this.

I keep you all informed.

Fewwww Good to hear that your hdd isn't damaged, at least you didn't lose any data.
For the time being the best option is to work on another computer with your hdd, and wait until being able to buy a new laptop. BTW if it is a controller issue, then someone could change the motherboard of the laptop, it should be cheaper (i home)if you search a mb on ali express or the like, just a little long.
But you need to know someone able to do the job.
