Hi:

 

You will have to install a new hard drive and reinstall the operating system to get your notebook to work again.

 

As for recovering any data from the failed drive...highly unlikely, but you can spend a few rupees on a SATA to USB cable, plug one end into a working PC and the other end into your hard drive and see if you can read/copy any data from the drive to the PC.

 

Something like this...

You're very welcome.

 

Yes, you should be able to replace the 2.5" mechanical hard drive with a 2.5" SSD.

 

If you let me know what storage capacity you want, I will post the links to a couple of recommendations.

It's 500GB but 250 GB Is enough.

Any suggestion for SSD?

Hi:

 

Yes.  This drive has the best read/write performance that I know of.  Great price too right now.

 

Comes with a 5 year warranty,

Anytime.

 

Glad to have been of assistance.

 

Please reply back and let us know how your notebook's SSD upgrade project went.

 

When you go to reinstall W10, use the media creation tool at the link below to create 64 bit installation media.

 

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

 

Boot from the media and you may be presented with a list of W10 versions to install.   You will most likely have to select W10 Home with a g6 notebook.

 

If you are asked to enter a product key during the installation process, select the 'I don't have a product key' option, and W10 will install and automatically activate once you are connected to the internet.

Questions!

How to reinstall windows!?

After download ISO file what should I do?

Actually I don't have any access to another PC, just my phone and usb driver and I can transfer file to it.

But it's enough? Or I need other PC?

Hi:

 

You will need to have access to another Windows PC with W7 or newer installed.

 

I know it is not easy to run around with today's pandemic, but if you know someone with a PC that it is safe to visit, you can take an 8 GB USB flash drive over and have them make it for you.
