  1. hard drive failure after Windows 10 update


    My Lenovo computer is four years old. When the latest Windows 10 update came up saying that the old version would not be supported in the future, I let it update. The first night, it was fine and I shut it down. The next night it updated again, and I shut it down afterward. The next morning there was no response from the computer beyond the Lenovo screen. My remote support could not get it to respond no matter what we tried. They indicated my hard drive may have failed. I took it to Best Buy to the Geeks. It had indeed failed and I had to buy a new hard drive and lose all the programs that were on the computer. Thankfully, I had an external hard drive with documents and pictures backed up to a point. I had to purchase a new hard drive and have that installed along with Windows 10, etc. Will MS reimburse me for these expenses?

    :)

    Seagate External Hard Drive

    Hi Barbara,

    Hardware failure or corruption within your system files are some of the possible reasons why you are experiencing an issue with accessing your external hard drive. For us to provide an accurate solution, we would need you to answer the following questions:

    • Which build, version and edition of Windows 10?
    • Are you experiencing the same issue when you are trying to access the external hard drive using another PC?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far?

    In the meantime, we suggest running the automated troubleshooter for hardware. Follow these steps to do so:

    • Open the Control Panel.
    • Using the search box at the upper right corner of the window, type troubleshooting.
    • From the search results, click on Troubleshooting.
    • Click on Hardware and Sound and then choose Hardware and Devices.
    • Once done, restart your computer and then check if the same issue persists.

    We are looking forward to your response.
