My hardrive "simpledrive" model 96300-41001-156

The external storage device has several major components:

* USB cable

* external power-supply

* disk-drive inside the enclosure

* USB-to-disk-drive adapter inside the enclosure.

Try a different USB cable.
Try a different USB port on your computer.
Try a USB port on a different computer.

Take a multi-meter, and measure the output voltage/amperage of the power-supply,
and compare with the specifications on the label of the power-supply.

Open the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive, and attach it as a "slave" drive in a desktop computer, to see if bypassing the USB-to-disk-drive adapter bypasses the problem.

Look at the label on the disk-drive, for manufacturer, product-number, serial-number, and manufacture date. Access the manufacturer's web-site, and use "check warranty status" to see if the warranty still is valid. If so, the drive can be replaced, at minimal cost to you.

Buy a new, compatible, disk-drive, and install it in the enclosure, to "revive" your external storage device.

Search online for a professional "data recovery service". For a significant fee, they can repair your disk-drive, just long-enough to copy your files to a new disk-drive.

I think that your disk-drive is "SLIGHTLY" dead. :-(

Disassemble the enclosure.

Get the model-number and serial-number from the label on the disk-drive.

Access Maxtor's web-site, and check the warranty-status of the disk.

If the warranty still is valid, Maxtor will replace the disk-drive, at minimal cost to you.

If the warranty has ended, buy a new, compatible, disk-drive, and install it into the enclosure, to "reconstitute" your external storage-device.

Frezzing computer


You know Michael, Once your computer freeze this causes is these.
1. Present of virus in the system
2. Hard drive damage
3. Memory mismatch


1. be sure to scan with a potent antivirus if not work, format reinstall the windows
2. If you do number one and still freeze then verify the memory and the hard drive.

In your case the problem started when you insert memory i guess it was mismatch memory.

guidelines for memory:

Do not use two different capacity memory in the computer.
it should be thesame manufacture date if possible and should be thesame model and sizes and it should be identical to each other.
You should get the correct Specification of your memory. example DDR 400,

You computer battery is only is less than US$ i think its very cheap. but he troubleshoot and he replace the hardrive i don't know if that is the case. PCU or CPU ..when computer still boot there is no problems with this. memory computer will not boot if memory is damage.

Hard drive, Less than 2,500.00 pesos 80 GB

I will suggest you to get all the parts that said damage and bring it your home and consult another computer tech. If you wish to know how to troubleshoot your computer i will teach you.
step by step troubleshooting. melnavz
