    Looks like you have a MSI MS-6590 KT4 motherboard in that. The bios update is here:

    And it says it fixes some USB compatibility issues, which does sound promising.

Doesnt want to be read by the computer it lights up and instals drivers doesnt show up in my computer

Your external hard drive likely has no partitions so Windows has no drive to mount. Follow these steps to create and format a partition for your external hard drive.

1. Press Win+R to open the Run command.
2. Type "Control" into the dialog box.
3. Double-click Administrative Tools.
4. Double-click Computer Management.
5. Select Disk Management under Storage.
6. Find the 250 GB External Hard drive in the right pane.
7. Right click on the drive and select "Create new partition".
8. After the partition is created you will need to format the partition.
9. Format the partition as NTFS unless you plan on booting off the hard drive, in which case format the partition as FAT32. You can also create multiple partitions if you want.
10. Enter My Computer and you will now see your external hdd.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa.

Hi, at bootup go into the bios settings and make sure you have enabled the drive, some bios settings need to have any drive over 160Gb enabled. Do an auto detect and see how that works. Regards mistyman
