It might be dead? (The light or the hard disk)
Does the notebook still work? If it works then the light is dead if it doesnt the HDD is dead.

I have 4 hard disk connected one win server 2003 R2 standard , one of the hard disk is flashing orange and green but others hard disks is blinking green , so could i have a solution ?

It's a predictive failure. Check RAID. It needs to be 1 or 5. Reseat the drive and let it rebuild array. HP might ask you to flash it, if under warranty.

Replace it if amber light comes back.

Light flashes continuously

The external drive has gone belly up. You can try it on another usb port and also on another computer just to satisfy yourself, but the drive has croaked.

I am not getting power to the external hard drive. when i plug in the ac adapter, i get a flashing green light on the adapter but no power to the disk. could the ac adapter be bad?

It's probably _NOT_ the AC adapter, given that the lamp is "green".

Disassemble the casing, and temporarily connect the disk-drive as a "slave" disk-drive in some desktop computer, to see if the disk itself is still functioning & its files can be read.

HI, this is a typical hard disk failure issue here, you will need to have Sony replace this damaged hard disk asap, if possible.

The hard disk is corrupt.

Dell latitude wont turn on

If you hear the hard disk clicking, most likely you have a faulty hard drive.
Go into the BIOS configuration and see if the BIOS has detected the hard disk, if not this means the hard disk is faulty or the disk controller is faulty.
To determine if the hard disk is faulty, remove the hard disk and connect it to an US hard disk adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. If this computer sees this as an external hard disk/external storage device and you can open the various folders and files then the hard drive is OK.
If the hard drive is not detected then it is faulty and you need a replacement hard disk and Windows needs to be installed on this drive to get the Dell operating again.
