When you start up your morning with a computer that is not turning up and have no backup of the files you want to access, it can be far worse than anything. The problem isn't big until you check the causes that affect the computer hard drive that won't boot. 

There are specific causes due to which your device may not start or boot, and because of this, your precious file and documents get trapped in the device only, which can only be accessed when the device starts working normally.

What Causes Affect the Computer that Won't Start

1.  Poor power supply

It may be the power cable or the supply that is causing failure while trying to start the device, but it won't—unstable power connection cause unbootable PC or laptop. 

2.  Device screen not working

Sometimes it might be the monitor screen that isn't working, but the system is alright. You can try to connect another monitor to the device that's working normally.

3.  BIOS settings

The operating system starts to crash when you make improper changes in the BIOS of the device's Operating system. You set the BIOS setting to the default and check if any data is not overwritten. 

4.  Malware files

When your PC is not protected with an updated firewall or no anti-malware program installed in the system, a malicious program can slow down the computer and attack the OS making the computer unbootable. 

5.  Corrupted boot sector

The PC that won't boot might be facing problems like corrupted boot sectors which tend to occur when the operating system is malfunctioning. It can happen when there are some system files deleted accidentally or the registry file is altered.

Check for the Computer Hard Drive that Won't Boot 

In case your valuable data is inaccessible due to an unbootable computer that is not turning on, you can check the computer hard drive activity if it is working on another computer or device.

Carefully take out the hard drive from the device system, put it inside an external hard drive casing and connect it to another working PC. Ensure you don't open the hard drive in the open; the disk platter is sensitive, which can get damaged in a typical environment. 

Check for the defects in the hardware of the hard disk; if it isn't working in other devices, then its time to seek data recovery services.
