    When you turn the computer on, does it begin the usual start-up sequence, i.e., the "splash" screens, the painting of the "wallpaper" ?

External hard disk


You should not need a disk to get an external hard disk initialized. Did you try to plug it into your PC and see if it detects it?

My iqon hard drive will power up but i cant access it


Clicking sound on an external hard drive is an indication that it's quiting to work. You mentioned that it's just stopped working, you may need to check the Disk Management of your computer to see if you could still reformat it. To do this, please follow the steps below:

FOR WINDOWS XP AND VISTA:

1. Make sure that the HD is properly connected to the computer.
2. Right-click 'My Computer' or 'Computer' folder and then go to "Manage".
3. Locate and click Disk Management.
4. Then, take note of the drive letters that will appear on the screen.
5. While the Disk Management window is opened, unplug the HD and check which drive letter will disappear.
6. If a drive letter disappears, then that is your external 250GB HD. You may reformat it to make it work again.

NOTE: Reformatting the HD will erase all the files saved in it. You may want to bring your HD in any data recovery center to retrieve the important files. If the HD didn't show up under your Disk Management, then there's nothing that we could do but to bring your HD in to the Data Recovery to save the files.

FOR MACINTOSH OSX:

1. Connect your HD to the computer.
2. Click 'Go' (located near the Apple icon, Finder, File, Edit and View).
3. Select Utilities and then click the Disk Utility Icon.
4. Take note the drive letters and then unplug the HD.

If a drive letter disappears, that's your HD. If nothing disappears, then the computer no longer detecting the HD.

Good luck!

I dropped my hard disk and i need help on how to fix it


I have bad news for you, the hard disk is faulty and cannot be fixed by mortals like you and me.
Hard disks do not like being dropped and this is a sure way of damaging them.
There are companies that can retrieve data from faulty hard drives BUT it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.
You can find these companies on the Internet, use Google to search for them.

I was doing an "update" and when it asked to


Sounds like your update went didn't work right. This could have been caused by a corrupted update file that Vista tried to install or you might have a hardware problem (i.e.bad hard drive). Try running the Dell diagnostics. Do you have any CD's thatcame with your computer? If so, look for one that has "Diagnostics and utilities"listed under the "Contents". You will have to boot from that CD disk. To dothis, power on your laptop and tap the key to bring you to the "Onetime boot menu". Insert the CD and then select CD/DVD drive and hit key. Select the "Run the32 Bit Dell Diagnostics". Next select the "Express Test" and see if any errorsare detected. If no errors are reported, then your operating system software isprobably the culprit.

My hard drive stop working and cant open it am no good on computer would like to talk to someone on the phone if it possible my number is 705-969-8679


If the disk-drive has "failed", then it must be replaced:
* turn the computer off
* disconnect the AC power
* remove the side-panel(s)
* remove the cables (data & power) that connect to the disk-drive
* remove the screws that hold the disk-drive in the frame
* remove the disk-drive
* take it to a computer-store
* show it to them, and they will sell you a compatible disk-drive
* reverse all the above "remove" steps to connect the new disk-drive
* turn the computer on
* insert the "System Restore" CD/DVD disk that came with your computer
* Windows will be installed onto the new disk-drive
* run Windows Update, several times, to get all the latest security-updates for Windows
* install free anti-virus software: http://www.Microsoft.com/security_essentials

However, it's possible that your disk-drive is still working, and all your "data" files on the disk-drive can be "rescued", even through Windows is not starting-up completely & properly.
Take your computer to a qualified technician, for trouble-shooting & repair.

western digital corporation(wdc) is probably the maker of the disk, and default name for their drive
