Question about Acomdata (HD320UFAPE5-72) (HD320UFAPE572) 320 GB Hard Drive

Not recognized After a year of good work the drive cannot be recognized by any PC.  The blue light is constantly on and it appears that the disc is not turning.  Only a 1 second clicking sound can be heard from the inside of the enclosure. Please advice what could be the problem here. Cheers, Buda

Th prob lem could be most probably your hard drive casing not supplying the correct voltage and not enough for the hard disk to spin the moter so please connect the hd directly to the computer if its fine just change the external casing..
good luck

The drivers must be up to date and written for your device. If there are no drivers, it will not communicate and thus it may look like it is working and in place, but the linkage is not there.

Blue Screen (Dell Dimension 3100 PC Desktop)


Here is just a suggestion.

If you power on the computer and get nothing but the "blue screen of death", there isn't too much you can do. If you still have the initial installation CD that you put in the day you got it, insert it and let the computer start up from the disc (if not automatically recognized, it can be done through BIOS). If you don't have it you'll be able to go online (from a different computer) and get a copy of the disc for little or no charge. Once your computer is back up and functional, go to the windows support website and run as many updates as you can.

More than likely you will lose everything.

I had a dell inspirion (I forget the exact model) that worked great for a few years and then completely died on me. I went online at my mom's house and got a new disc, I don't know if they charged me but you should be entitled to a free disc, just pay the shipping. Long story short I got the disc, put it in and reset my computer. It worked great for a few months after and I wound up selling it to a friend who has done further updates and it has worked fine since.

Good luck and happy holidays!

If this has helped you in any way please help me by giving me a good rating. Thanks!

PC do not recognize DVD drive and do not show it on screen anymor


It is probably a hardware problem but I would go into the BIOS screen which it gives you instructions when your first booting up on how to do this. One inside the bios screen, which is usually blue, find a list of what hardwares are pre programmed in, maybe under drive managment. Almost all computers have different wordings. See if it listed amogst your hardware, if it is, it may be turned off some how, see if you can turn it back on.

Try checking your power cord adapter.
I found the same problem was with the cord.
