    I had the same problem... I turned off my external drive when it was
    turning very fast (faster than usually because i was earing the noise,
    not the one it makes usually...) than when I tryed to turn it on the
    day after the blue light was flashing and my computer did not reconize
    it. So THANKS for the ''cue'', IT'S NORMAL'' I've just plugged again my
    external case into my computer, then turn it off (the drive), turn it
    on, and it worked! EASY!

Its normal, and is the signal showing the drive powering/spinning up and down. The drive spins at 7200 rpms, when you power it up or down, its switches onto the speed that best suits  what it's intended to do.

Screen display on iPad 2 changed to blue background with slight flickering. This happened while using - it did not drop. Reset has not solved problem.


Turn it over on your lap or on something soft like couch or carpet. Karate it chop it on the apple logo. Start softly and keep using more force. Folks have even used a hammer to do this but I don't advise it. You can also drop it face down on carpeted floor. Your ipad is likely stunned and needs to be stunned again to return to normal.

I have a 1999 Honda Shadow 750 ACE the marker lights are flickering and it backfires on decell after steady throttle, what could be causing this? I have tuned it up and cleaned the carb but it still does...


To help stop the popping replace the copper head o-rings and muffler to head pipe seals. Backfiring is typically caused by air leaking into the exhaust and igniting unburned gasses. Flickering lights indicate bad wire connections/grounds. Honda grounds the turn signals through the green wires. You will probably have to take off the seat and open up the headlight bucket. Try unplugging and replugging the orange,blue, and green wires going to all four turn signals. This should take poor contact and grounding out of the equation and sort out your flickering lights. Also go to the fuse box and take out the fuses one at a time and reinstall them. Make sure that the end caps of the fuses are not loose, if so, replace the fuse. Broken ar cracked fuses on older bikes can cause head scratching problems where there aren't any. Make sure that all your turn signals are grounded through the green wires.

Vantec Nexstar 3 HD not being recognized on comp


Hi, I had this same problem - blue light flashing and the drive not being recognised.

The problem was with the power cord, not the drive.

I solved the problem by unplugging the connection on the power cord between the outlet end and the power brick section, and re-plugging them after flipping one of the ends over.

The drive was now getting power correctly and spun up and was recognised as usual.
