Re: computer keeps rebooting

Your computer may be getting hot. One of my computers will get hot and shut itself off or reboot. My solution was to take off the side panel and stick a small fan there. As long as the fan runs no problems.

Sounds like your dealing with a software issue. Most likely a video driver. if there was a recent time that the machine worked, I'd run a system restore. Then look for what might have been installed that caused this problem so you can stay away from it.

"not working" SimpleDrive 1TB Turbo

Hi Mav, According to the specs at SimpleTech, the HDD is plug and play, so here is what I would try.
  • unplug the HDD
  • open the Device Manager
  • click on the + next to Hard Disks
  • select the drive
  • uninstall the driver
  • turn the computer off
  • reboot
  • turn it off again
  • plug in the HDD
  • reboot
Window should reinstall the HDD. If that does not work, I would then download CCleaner from Piriform, link is listed below. Once you have it installed, use the Registry Cleaner after uninstalling the HHD driver. Select "clean all" when prompted. Make sure that when CCleaner asks if you want to backup the Registry to select Yes, just in case something does go wrong you can restore the Registry to as it was before. I have used this program on many different systems and never had a problem. After cleaning, shut down and plug the HDD back in and reboot. By the way, CCleaner has some other great utilities that help keep your computer clean.
  • If this helps resolve your issue, would you please rate the solution. If this does not help, please leave a comment giving me more information on the problem and I will try to help you further.

A couple of days ago, my laptop froze. I tried Ctrl+Alt+Del, but that didn't do anything. This never happened before. When I rebooted, the computer froze within a couple of minutes and this happens...

Hello there,

There several reasons of the freezing. It could be a virus infection on the computer or a System problem. Try to boot from Safe Mode or "Last known good configuration". Reboot and continuously press F5 or F8 until it will show you the selection. Highlight to select Safe Mode or "Last known good configuration"then press Enter. It should reboot.

Please let me know how this goes so that I could further assist you. Thank you for using FixYa.

My hard drive got unplugged without being stopped and now keeps running into read errors

Hopefully, the read errors are not from physical damage.
These are the steps that you need to take, and the instructions on how to do it:
1. Reboot into Safemode
2. Run a virus and spyware scanner
3. Defrag
4. Scandisk
5. Registry error repairing
6.Reboot into regular mode windows

Here is how to do it:
Reboot yor machine while holding the F8 key right as it boots back up. A menu will apear. Choose -->"start windows in safe mode with networking".
Windows will start in safe mode. Run an AVG virus scan, then run Defrag by exploring your computer, right click on C: drive, click PROPERTIES, then the TOOLS tab, click the "check now" button, and both checkboxes,both 'fix file system errors', and "scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors" then click ok, the computer will then tell you it will scan upon next reboot (which upon reboot will take about an hour). Now click the DEFRAG NOW button. then choose defrag. After Defrag runs for about an hour and it is finished, restart the system. If is still won't run normally, go back into Safemode buy pressing F8 on reboot, then run a registry fixing program such as uniblue registrybooster, then reboot again. If it still won't run right, you may want to format the hard drive and reinstall Windows and see if that works. If reinstalling windows doesn't fix it, it is definitely a hardware problem.
Good luck.

The harddisk makes noise and doesnt respond the Mac computer

Let the computer run for 15 minutes then switch it off, wait a minute, and then start it up again. If there is a repeated clicking sound then it is more than likely that your hard drive is broken and you will need to take it to a qualified technician to look at it.

My external hard drive does not mount. I just hear repeated sound like when the dvd/.cd is in the writing mode. please help us solve this problem

This sounds like your hard drive is about to die. Trying leaving the computer on for about 15 minutes, switch it off, wait a minute, and then switch it back on. If the clicking still carries on then you will need to take it in to a qualified technician for repairs.
