When should I replace my hard drive?

Ah, the big question of when. There are a lot of ways we could answer this, giving you a ream of nerdish deets on the minutiae of hard drive diagnostics. But ultimately, it really all boils down to something a tipsy elderly aunt probably told you two sherries deep into a Christmas party bender: Prevention is Better Than Cure. 

The best time to have a laptop hard drive repair or replacement done to your laptop is before the issue becomes critical. That’s why if you see any hint of hard drive weirdness, it’s smart to play it safe and have one of our Sacramento techs come take a closer look.

So what kinds of hints should you pay close attention to?

  • Louder than usual grinding noises when your laptop hard drive whirs into life is a red flag that you may be looking at laptop hard drive repair in your near future.
  • Anything strange when you try to access files is another ominous indicator. Let’s say you try to copy a small file to another place on your hard drive and it takes 30 seconds or more. That’s odd. It’s smart to play it safe and talk to us about laptop hard drive repair when anything like this happens. 
  • Another biggy? You boot your laptop up and it launches straight into a hard drive diagnostic. As a wise robot once said, “Danger Will Robinson!” 

Problems like these don’t go away. In fact, they usually get significantly worse significantly fast. And yes, that is a whole lot of significance in one tiny sentence. So if any of the above is happening to you — or even if you’re just looking for a second opinion — talk to one of our techs about laptop hard drive repair.

We’ll take a look for damaged or loose cables

At Nerds On Call, we approach laptop hard drive repair with the goal of minimizing your costs and your hassles. And it’s much cheaper to fix or replace a cable than it is to replace your hard drive.

It’s important to remember that all hard drives will eventually fail. And sometimes a laptop hard drive repair won’t be enough to retrieve all your lost or corrupt files. A backup plan protects your data against any hardware failure you might experience in the future. We can help you set up a protection plan and show you how to use the service. 

We can replace your laptop’s hard drive
