Question about Maxtor Personal Storage 3200 (U01E200) 200 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

I dropped the grandson's external drive.

Help! have I done my dash for good? Can he get it fixed? School starts on Monday and he has that 'last minute' assignment to complete. Can I open it and give it a shake? It vibrates and makes a little noise. I don't know what it usually sounds like.

    Advice was good. I am now looking for that 'savvy tech' to check it out. A little sticker says I will void the warranty if I open it. Thankyou

If the hard drive itself is damaged, recovery of any data on it may only be possible by sending it to a business specializing in such. I'd suggest opening the case of the unit, and you should find that the drive in it is what is in a desktop or laptop computer, with the appropriate electronics to adapt it to USB. There will be at least one cable connection to the drive- make sure it is properly seated. I've seen an instance where the only problem was a partially disconnected cable. Another possibility, is, if it is a standard drive, to let a tech savvy person take the drive itself, and connect it to a standard computer, and see if it is then readable. If so, data can be recovered.

Can you help with why a high school is not taking action to ensure the safety of students on a "kill" list?

If you are sure of the details, why not report at the police station so they'd be aware of this potential threat to life?

If there is a Parents Teachers Forum/association for this school, raise this issue up and suggest they beef up security watch within the school premises.

Security guards, CCTVs, etc for a start.

Having trouble starting my oldsmobile alero. It won't start and the dash lights won't even come on now.

rough guess is that the battery is faulty
have a load test done on it
cold weather kills failing batteries quickly

My acer aspire one happy series AOD257 bought 3 months ago, just freezes and cannot load window when i opened it last monday morning. It came with Windows7 starter edition. I have done starting it in safe...

Go through your manual and do a system recovery - this is the fastest way to get back working as original.
I hope you have a backup of your data? If not, you will need help creating a boot USB drive or connect a external DVD device to access your data.

Next time you start, 1st thing , download and install Microsoft Security Essentials and run Windows Update from the Microsoft site - all before you load any other software or return your data.

Now THIS is an old school problem. Way back, memory resident space was assigned to help with IO operations. This error happens when there's not enough memory to complete an operation with a given piece of hardware. I haven't seen this in ages! It has to do with IRQs. I assume you're dealing with a custom legacy application on your POS equipment, or whatever you're using is taking an older approach to getting things done. Here's some information from Microsoft on why the problem happens and how to fix it. Enjoy!
