Maintainence check

test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions SATA/IDE

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty


make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty


even something as small as an electrical extension or a faulty fan lead can cause you problems computer needs all of the data and power to travel through every working device and to have an end for a computer to be able work properly


a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive check all electrical extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd drives need to have current go through make sure these devices are working

"the parameter is not correct" msg re WD My Book, unable to access


Try plugging it into a different computer to see what it does. Sometimes a computer's operating system will recognize an external drive differently if it has only a slight problem, whereas another computer's configuration may treat the problem differently. Some external hardrive software can get jumbled by the programs of a computer or sometimes even their own software programs can cause slight problems. It sounds like a software problem with bugs that can be ironed out. Also some computers will change the drive name to fit into the order of drives it recognizes. Good luck!

Honda crv 2003 - squeaking / squealing nosie from passenger side that disappears when braking or turning hard


If only the pads were changed then you can't expect much

Proper brake service requires hours of rust removal,lubing
certain places & parts,new or machined rotor,fluid flush and
much more.

No reason at all for brakes to squeak except poor & sloppy
work

99% of that comes from the pros

Those who work on there own cars eventually learn the
proper way to do things & resolve problems

I don't know your situation or where the work was done or
by whom

You could have rusted & frozen caliper pistons from never
changing brake fluid every 2 years or bad flex hose holding
pressure on pads.

I have a Lenovo H430 Desktop & i Got a Seagate 3Tb Internal Hard Drive & i can't get the computer to detect the hard drive & everything i have tried & even Seagate tried nothing wo


hi..there...

why your lenovo H430 Desktop cannot detect your internal Hard Drive Seagate 3 TB ..because your Lenovo only support maximum 2TB Internal Hard Drive..

so the best thing to solve your problem is replace your hard drive and use only maximum 2 TB for your internal hard drive..

that's will make your lenovo works again

Please say someone has a solution for me, very worried i've most my life's collection of music and movies =[


Try the WD USB hard drive in another computer. If you can access your data on another computer then backup your data.
If the WD USB hard drive is faulty then -
It is not possible to recover data from faulty hard drivesby mortals such as you and I.
There are companies that can recover data from faulty and damaged hard drivesBUT they wll charge an arm and a leg for their services.
