Re: My HP Media Center PC will not reboot after being unpowered

HP Recommended

Will this method work if after running a system diagnostic I have a read element failure. This happened after a power surge due to outage. I would like to retrieve my files if possible.

It may work.  Assuming the method asked about is the method to try the retrieval by using a different PC as a host and the USB to SATA adapter.

Actually have not had a failure where it said read element failure.  Is that the actual statement or has it been rephrased?
