Question about SimpleTech 1TB External USB 2.0 Hard Drive - Gray Gun Metal

1 Answer

Doesn't want to search for drivers.

Everything was working at my house, did a normal shut-down. Went to friend's house 10 minutes away. We are both techy, and we couldn't figure out why it doesn't want to search for drivers, and it can not be seen on the computer. We both had Vista, and the screen at the bottom was always saying driver installation: failed. search? yes. nothing. windows cannot find drivers anywhere, computer, or internet.

First, un-install the USB port in the control panel, then restart.
Then in the control panel under device manager, look for the USB drive ,make sure it's not exclamated out.

Normally this unit does not need drivers in Vista nor XP. I had a unit doing the same and it turned out to be the board in the enclosure. I returned it and the new one worked fine.

Make sure all the linkages and springs are hooked up on the throttle system and where they pivit is clean. Try moving the linkage by hand gently to make sure there is no sticking and litely oil where the linkages connect. If everything is working properly your internal governor has to be replaced.

you might have an air lock, when you first start filling the spa, start the water running in the skimmer first. that should force air out of the pump and should pick up prime right away. if not, you may have a valve problem.

Sporatic problem with Stereo and Stereo Display


I have had this problem intermittently since I purchased the vehicle in 2004... the dealer could not fix but showed me that there is a relay that you can pull and re-install. It's under the hood and must be done with the ignition and lights off. Pull the relay, wait 10 secs and re-install and pblm goes away. If you are standing in front of the vehicle there is a relay box on your right/vehicle left. The relay is located in the lower left-had corner of this box. Not a permanent fix, and in my experience the problem goes away when the vehicle is parked for an hour or so but if you have a long drive and want to use the radio, this 60-second fix is worth knowing...

You may have a fuel pump issue, or as you mentioned a fuel problem due to water or old gas, check the pressure at the fuel rail that goes to the injectors, there is a service port there, also take a sample of the gas and let it stand to see if any water is present, smell the gas, bad gas smells like paint thinner.
