There's no much need for instructions.
you just plug the hd into a USB port avaliable in your computer. the operating system should be able to recognize it a few seconds after you have plugged the hd into the usb port.

some hd may require for 2 usb to be connected to the computer for the computer to see it.. usually they come with a "y" usb cord. one goes to the hd and 2 usb type a cord go to 2 usb ports on the computer

to check to make sure the computer sees the hd. go into my computer and check if a removable storage device has appear.

also check your hd is on, some external hd may have switch to turn them on.
also check if your hd requires external power if it does it should come with a power connector that needs to be connected and plugged into the power outlet for it to work.

post your finding if you need more help.

On black white screen it says Hard Drive failure is imminent. Back up or replace


Your computer is set to warn you of controller failure to the hard drive. Its called SMART monitoring. You will have to replace the drive. Start backing up your precious data to a reliable drive before the unthinkable happens. Right now it will continue running normally, but it WILL fail. Portable hard drives are extremely cheap right now. Its recommended you purchase a portable drive that is at least twice the size of your current hard drive. Next, get a hard drive that is the same type of drive you have in your system (have a service tech help you with this if youre not comfortable doing this).

I removed the processor in my P4 desktop PC and when I replaced the processor the PC would not power up. Have I accidentally unplugged a cable or is there a chance that I've zapped the processor with...


there is a very good chance of having zapped th cpu wit static if u didnt ground ur stat lec on a radiator or something metal.. or much more likely th motherboard if th points on that were touched..why was th cpu removed.?? and did u apply some anti thermal grease btween th cpu and th heatsink block when u replaced it.?? not that th lack of it wud affect th cpu straight away neccessarily.. but over a time th cpu would get hotter than it should/would with thermal grease applied.. is there no movement of anything at all now.?? because that cud b a connector attaching th power cable to th motherboard is unplugged..this wud either b th long connector that goes direct to th m/b or a little 4pin one.. alternatively it cud b th tiny connector attaching th heatsink fan to th m/b..but this is unlikely as ur cpu would undoubtedly have overheated and gone kaboom by now if that was th case.. plus th power supply wud still b sparkin juice still.. some pc's have a tiny on off switch at th back (not to b confused wit th tiny adapter on th power supply as that changes th voltage) if all this appears to b in order im afraid it looks as tho either th m/b, cpu, or power supply have blown.. did u touch ne of th pins on th processor.?? lol sorry bout th length o this msg haha once i start i cant ******* :oD Tekz.+*♥

I just bought an iOmega eGo 160GB external hard drive and have no idea how to use it once I've installed the program. Help!!


From what I'm finding; this drive is a USB 2.0 drive. First, you'll need to plug the drive into the computer via the supplied USB cable (if it came with one) and any AC power for the drive if it requires it.

Then, your PC should detect it and you then need to run the software for it to be configured properly.

To use the drive, simply (if in windows) double click my computer and the drive will probably come up with a name such as eGo or iOmega Hard Disk or possibly even External Hard Disk. From there, double click that drive and start copy files! :)

Labtop computer internal hard drive


The drive you have is a IDE, Ultra DMA 133, 4200 RPM.

If you are running XP or Vista you can purchase any brand hard drive. Size depends on what you want to spend. Recommend Maxtor. Just make sure it is IDE and for a laptop. Most computer retailers will sell them (BestBuy, Circuit City, etc)
