I would assume that, as long as the hard drive is still good, and that the interface is sATA that any current enclosure would do - the main difference between enclosures is the read/write speeds that can be sustained. Here is a simple one: enclosure link.

Try using this card on another PCI slot. Seems to be problem at the PCI port that you have connected the card.

No computer of mine recognizes this printer and the left drip light keeps blinking even though i have repalced it


If by referring to the left drip light you mean the bottom left light; this is the indicator light for the color ink cartridge:
Left print cartridge light blinks, Power light on. Tri-color print cartridge is damaged or missing.
? Reinstall the print cartridge. If the error persists, replace the print cartridge.

? You can still print with one cartridge


it is possible that once the computer and printer are communicating that the error messages could also be resolved by running the printer diagnostic program.


If your computers do not recognize the printer, uninstall the driver, if you had installed a specific driver, and then go to the site below to download a driver for your operating system and specific printer:

I don't have Sound drivers for my Vista Sp2 and I cannot access the Internet, I think my OS also doesn't have network drivers. Please help me with this. I had to downgrade to XP. Please help! Thanks in...


some pc's are os specific, you need to find that out about yours. if that's the case you may have to re-instal vista. If not, you could acquire the drivers through a secondary pc on to a flash drive and load them on your machine.

hen you next have to change your os for whatever reason, first back up the drivers. the only hitch may be that the drivers are os specific.

ok your getting power to the drive thats a start, your computer is probably not recognizing because-:

1. you have put the cable in the wrong way around, turn off computer, remove power lead, try turning the cable around and placing into the drive the other way.
2. Is the cable connected to the motherboard (main circuit board)?
3. Try these things and put power lead back in and turn on, windows should detect and automatically install the relevant drivers.

Try this, any luck? if not get back to me.

Glad to help.

Usb device not recognized


try connecting your phone to a USB 2.0 port.
Some older computers give this error. If you can find a newer laptop to try and plug it in it may recognize it. As far as a driver goes, with Windows XP or Vista you shouldn't need a driver disk at all. It is more like a compatibility issue than a software problem.

PC won't recognize external usb HDD


You may not have installed the HDD correctly in the case... I had the same problem with my Thecus N1050 enclosure, the green power light on the enclosure would come on and the drive would spin up but my PC would not see the HDD!!??... I thought, becuase i could hear the drive spinning that i had it installed correctly but this wasn't the case, when i removed the enclosure again and FIRMLY pushed the HDD into the connector (all the way in) and connected it back up to my PC, it recognised it instantly. Hope this helps!
