I have damaged my laptop by accident, it wont even turn on and its been like that for 3 months. At first, I was going to remove the hard drive and save all my data but I am not sure how to and rather than it just sitting at home I thought I would sort it out. However, it's from comet so I am giving it to them to fix it as its insured.

What I want to know is, do they take out my hard drive (which isnt damaged) and place a new one in or do they leave that in and will it be wiped. This is as it contains personal stuff...

anyone help me please, its a sony vaio
If they take the hard drive out, they return it to you. That's all I know, really.

It doesn't sound like a hard drive problem but it's standard practice to wipe the hard drive clean. When you take it in ask them if they can make a back-up of the data on it. If you do it yourself it might void your warranty so it's best to ask them. They might say no then there's not much you can do.

I am not concerned if they wipe the hard drive. I just don't want them not to wipe it, remove it and put it in another laptop to save them money.

I watched a lot of films and have data on it so I don't want them to see that and see I am breaking the privacy act. Obviously if they wipe it I am fine but I just don't want them to give my laptop to someone else.
they won't

When my computer went into repair with the Tech Guys (who I think Comet use), they took my hard drive out for no real reason known to me. (They said "We had detected problems with it, so removed it"). When asked why it was returned, as it's useless to me now, they said "We legally cannot retain your property. You have paid for the harddrive. The new one is free, but the old one is still your property and so we have to return it."

do they definetly do that or do they use it on another laptop?

no they won't put it in another laptop without asking/telling you anyway. They have no need to as it isnt a hard drive failure anyway

you might as well put it to good use, buy a hard drive enclosure and you'll be able to use it like normal :yep:

but since it isn't a hd failure wouldn't the hd be useful on another pc. It's a very old model of sony vaio I think.

I assumed this. Apparently, it's in the terms and conditions that they can alter the hard drive or replace it if they see fit without your permission (because I argued with them on this point). So they can certainly remove it without your permission.

Apparently, they test every hard drive they receive for faults. (The fault I sent my laptop in for what "The A Key has fallen off." Hardly a hard drive issue. XD)

what I mean is, the same model would surely accept the same HD. Rather than building a new hd for the same model an undamaged hd would work fine no?
Check the picture. They have definately at least returned a hard drive to me. :p:

I think you're going to have to get over this if you're going to send your computer away.

They have better things do with their time than go through your hard drive. Trust me. Mine was packed with hours of illegal music and video, and nothing happened about it.

you know if you delete something from recycle bin can they still see that in recovery?
