Hi im using Lenovo legion y720

Recently ,the laptop was making a weird noise ,it was just getting louder and louder,I didn't mind it though.(I thought it was the fans hitting something)

But today it finally stopped! But when i fired up my laptop it doesnt show the HDD although the ssd was working.So im assuming that noise was the HDD.Any ways to fix this without opening the laptop?
(otherwise im just going to send it for repairs)

I tried the disk management thingy and it shows the ssd and the recovery and two others(one of them is called Disk 0 partition 1 and the other was WINRE_DRV.


i7 7700HQ
16GB RAM
GTX 1060 6gb
256 SSD
1TB HDD

Sounds like the Hdd died Unfortunately you need to replace the drive.

Fans normally do not hit things they can also develop hardware failures also.

My PC game system had a fan issue when I troubleshooted it it was my GPU fan. That was the cause had to get a new GPU.

I figured there was no backup of the backup :). Data recovery of a drive can cost $250 and up. Here is how I backup my primary drive. I use FreeFileSync to create each backup which basically is folder to folder. I will backup the backup files to a DVD or a CD depending on the size of the backup.

This tool to make it easier to backup copy all the data you want to keep and it finds issues with files and lets you know. I do mirroring left to right for my backups this is just one direction make sure you setup each backup not to delete the source.
