Hewlett Packard Data Recovery


HP was founded by Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard in Bill’s garage in 1939. To decide on whose name came first, a coin was tossed and Hewlett-Packard was born. Their first fruitful product was a precision audio oscillator, eight of which were purchased by one of their earliest customers: Walt Disney Productions.

For a short period of time, HP became partners with Sony and Yokogawa Electric. Unfortunately, the products were too costly to build, and HP purchased Yokogawa’s share in the 90’s. They also ventured into digital equipment, creating the company Dynac to handle the production, but by 1959 it had be absorbed back into HP. In 1966, they finally dove into the computer market with a series of minicomputers. They continued to produce the series for the next 20 years, and they were a precursor to the desktop and business computer of the company today. While they had not originally been much of a contender in the computer world, in sales they later surpassed IBM as the largest technology vendor. They had an opportunity earlier when co-founder of Apple, Steve Wozniak, worked at the company. When he had first designed the Apple 1, he had offered it to them, but it was not taken up as they wanted to remain in industrial, scientific and business markets.

In 1984, their inkjet and laser printers made their debut and became very successful products. In the 1990’s, they decided to expand their computer line for consumers. In 2002, HP merged with Compaq, and in 2004 they released the HP Pavilion. The goal from that point was to focus on personal computers and they quickly employed viral marketing strategies and celebrities to further the campaign. Throughout the 2000’s they acquired many companies such as Electronic Data Systems, 3Com, Palm, and Tandem Computers & Digital Equipment Corporations (via their merge with Compaq). In 2011, their first tablet was released: the HP TouchPad. Though due to internal workings of the company, stocks began to drop; taking a harsher turn when they announced they were discontinuing their webOS devices. In 2014, they HP announced they would be separating into two companies; one for personal computers and another for their technology services.

 Common Problems

The HDDs used in Hewlett-Packard products can fail just as any other company’s. The drives can suffer from logical or physical failures. Logical failures can be initiated by viruses, malware, partitions being deleted or reformatted, or accidental file deletion. If your hard drive is making any clicking, ticking or unusual noises, turn off the device immediately. Continuing to run it could possibly cause damage to the platters and further data loss. Occasionally the drives themselves will simply not show on the computer, or will power on and remain silent. We recommend powering down the device and calling us immediately.
