Information: Seagate's Momentus drive is a very recent addition into the laptop hard disk market. As their popularity increases, we are beginning to see more of them fail and come in for data recovery.

Common failure symptoms:

  • The drive will start & be recognized in the BIOS but the computer will run slowly and may hang. A regular 'ticking' sound may be heard
  • The drive will start but not be recognized in the BIOS. A regular 'ticking' sound may be heard

Cause: As with all laptop hard disks, there are numerous causes of these problems, but the symptoms are often the same.

Recovery possibilities: Asia Data Recovery Centre can usually perform a full recovery from Seagate Momentus hard disks that fail with the above symptoms.

Additional: We have recently seen many Seagate Momentus 40Gb drives, model numbers ST94019A & ST94011A, and Seagate Momentus 30Gb drives, model number ST93012A, with media degradation problems that have been sent to us for recovery. Some of these disks have been to other recovery companies, without success. Fortunately we can usually recover the data from these drives using our own data recovery hardware tool, known as Diskmaster. All ST94019A drives that we have seen with media degradation begin the serial number with the characters 3KW.

What if I have one of these drives but the symptoms are different?: This is quite possible, they are still prone to all the other problems hard disks suffer from ie. mechnical failure, logical failure, bad sectors etc.

What should I do?: Call Asia Data Recovery Centre and talk your problem through with us on 0065-67461909, or fill out the request form and we'll call you back
