Maxtor hd makes alot of noise stoped working


Depending on the age of the computer or hard drive itself, the hard drive may still be under warranty. What I recommend is to call Maxtor and see if they can do a warranty replacement of the hard drive. It sounds as if this hard drive may have failed completely. It would be a good idea however to take the hard drive to a reputable computer repair shop in your town and see if they can recover any data you may need from the hard drive. They may charge a little bit to do it, but it may be the only way to save any data you may really need. If Maxtor sends you a new hard drive or if you buy a new one, you should be able to reinstall Windows or whatever operating system you have currently installed. If you made a recovery disk for your computer then you should be able to use it to install the operating system. If no disk, the computer repair shop may have a disk that can be used to install the operating system. They may want you to bring in the computer (as there is a sticker on it that has a product key for the operating system (if Microsoft, and if it is a factory built computer)). I hope that this information helps you. Let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

I had my maxtor one touch 4 750 gb external hard drive installed on a dell laptop with windows xp i plugged it into a mac and installed it but couldnt get it to work so i plugged it back into my laptop and...


Hi there, I think it may be to do with the format of the harddrive - see if you used the Maxtor in a Windows XP environment it would have been formatted to suit that OS.

Is the Harddrive formatted to NTFS?

Purchased Maxtor ONE TOUCH III. when I had XP. Now that I have Vista, mAXTOR DOESN'T RECOGNIZE IT. iS THERE AN UP-DATE? nEED HELP. Thanks Marty xmartico@san.rr.com


Hey xmartico,

If your recent update from Windows XP to Windows Vista has been the only major change to your computer system since you could access your Maxtor One Touch III last, you may simply need to reinstall the Maxtor software to resolve the problem.

Information provided by the manufacturer has suggested that if no password was ever set, the hard drive should work with Vista immediately with no additional work required. If you had chosen a password however, you may need to reinstall the software and reboot every time you disconnect/shut down the external drive, or disable your user account control (UAC). Please keep in mind though that disabling UAC is strongly discouraged, as it may open your computer to attacks by various malware programs including viruses and spyware.

If you're still not quite sure how to proceed, I would strongly recommend contacting Maxtor directly for further assistance.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Hard Drive Problems


I suspect that the ribbon cable (seatbelt looking cable) in the computer has possibly come loose. Especially if both HDD's can't be seen.

Possible too that the CMOS has lost the specifications of the HDDs. Press F2 or DEL key while booting (depends on the CMOS/computer type).

Or, both hard drives have gone bad, which is unlikely that both at the same time went out.

Please rate FixYa! or clarify with more information or testing results.
