Put your vista installation dvd back in the drive and run the repair utility. For complete details see:
http://neosmart.net/wiki/display/EBCD/Recovering+the+Vista+Bootloader+from+the+DVD

From the "install windows" box, click on "repair your computer", from the "system recovery options" select "startup repair".

If that doesn't work, try the "completePCRestore" option in the "system recovery options" box.

Brennan JB7 wont switch on after we had a power cut


The power supply may have a voltage missing or have gone bad. Worse is the motherboard fried. If you used a surge protector it may have done it's job. There are sacrificial parts called MOV's inside that sometimes explode or just open internally. That may need to be replaced.

An external storage-device has four major components:

* the USB cable

* the power-adapter

* the disk-drive inside the enclosure

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

One of these components has failed.

Try a different USB cable.

Try connecting to a different USB port on your computer.

Try connecting to a USB port on a different computer.

Take a "multi-meter" and measure both the voltage and amperage output from the AC adapter, and compare with the specifications on the label on the adapter.

Open the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive, and then connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in a desktop computer, to see if it works at all.

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

Get the part-number and serial-number from the label on your disk-drive, and access the manufacturer's web-site, and use "check warranty status", to see if they will replace the device, at minimal cost to you.

There exist commercial "data recovery" services that can try to repair your device, just long-enough to rescue and copy your files. For example, see: https://services.seagate.com/index.aspx?lng=en-US for a "no data - no charge" guarantee.

An external hard drive is a normal hard drive with a converter to change it to USB.
If you have important information on it, you could open it up, and connect internally to your computer, however, opening it will (almost always) void the warranty.

I'd recommend contacting whoever sold it to you, and asking them: 1) If you can open it up, to connect it internally, to get your data off, and 2) For a replacement.

Good luck with it.

Are you seeing an amber light on your power button? If so you might want to check your power supply. Make sure to plug your power cord into another plug just to make sure that it was not your outlet or surge protector.

Some HD manufacturers provide utilities for Disk Recovery. You can usually download these from their site. If you are lucky it is just the drives Master Boot Record that is damaged. The fact that the drive is recognizable is in your favour I think. Unfortunately when power is restored after an outage there is often a power surge or spike on your AC which can damage electronic equipment. Many devices these days work on such low voltages and current that it doesn't take much. A good surge protector is a must for computer equipment.

there was a surge of power threw your system you need by an industrial power surge protector for your system now for the harddrive ive found that if you turn over and mount on static bag with box your harddrive should run long enough for you too collect and move data too another drive but never place on metal surface

Failure to boot


This model appears to have a high failure rate in consumer reviews, so it may have physical damage on the disk. Only a re-format of the drive will isolate bad sectors that won't hold data. Try re-mounting your drive after a fresh re-boot of your computer. If the drive came with the manufacture's software to allow it to communicate with your computer, then try removing this software from your system and re-installing it again. This will repair a corrupt driver or I/O program. Try using the drive with a new or different firewire cable. Other users have reported this drive working again after replacing the cable. If you use Mac OS 10.2, you might not be able to initialize or partition the hard drive. This may require you to partition and format the drive on a different computer. From your brief description, it sounds as though you may need to re-format the drive before it will work again.

bricked hard drive? Would folling this lead to a full hard drive format or just unbricking a drive like people sat it does?? Also any other ways that might help would be great to know, heres what i'm talking about! "Fixing The Drive NOTE: Commands for you to type are in red boldface. Pay attention to upper & lower case - it is important. Turn on power to the RS232-to-TTL adapter and the hard drive. After a few seconds, Press CTRL+z.
