Any sort of noise form the disk is not a good sign. i suggest you look for the warranty card & take it to the shop you bought it from. you could be having a defective ****

Maybe you did damage a component due to overheating? What caused the Laptop to overheat? Does the battery work on another laptop?

Dell Studio 1737's power pack makes a shrieking, humming noise


I would stop using the adapter immediately. It could be about to blow. When one of these blows, you can get smoke, sparks and fire. You don't want that to happen when you are not around. Further you don't want to have a voltage spike from the adapter to *********** board. You can buy a new adapter at Walmart or whereever. Just be sure that it supports Dell computers. Dell uses a third pin frequently. Check the voltage and amperage of your current adapter. You should see something like 19V and 3 Amps. Make sure that your replacement adapter works within those rages.

You can also buy an exact match from Dell or ebay.

Expect a good Universal adapter that you buy at Walmart to be in the range of 50-100.

The good thing about a universal adapter is that you can use it on another notebook later.

Strange noises, disk won't fully spin or start up...


Your AC adapter is "dying", and must be replaced.
Is it still under "warranty", i.e., you contact LaCie,
get an RMA (Return Materials Authorization) number,
they ship you a new adapter. If you ship them the old adapter,
within a week, they will _not_ charge your credit-card the $30.

Simpletech hard drive not working


I have that problem similiar to yours. My simple tech stopped working for like two years so i decided to open up my simple tech and removed my HD away from the old enclosure so I can try building my own external hard drive for the first time. I bought another new 3.5 enclosure, IDE/ATA for the old HD. I put it in the new enclosure and it worked!

It's the only solution you can have. No need to retrieve data or re-format your HD. You can leave it the way you like...if you wanna reformat it...up to you.

La cie hard drive mount issues


I had the same problem and surprisingly, after many attempts to get the drive to mount with different connections, etc., the problem turned out to be the power adapter. If you've got the same kind of adapter on another drive, switch it out and see if your drive shows up. Good luck.

My maxtor 200GB drive is not recognized by my CPU anymore!


Hi Crkinard.. i think you shuld first find out whether the problem is with the external device or your computer... so check if the device is recognised by another system... as you have been using the device dor couple of years i think yours computer's drive for external devices should have been corupted.. so check out the device with some other computer.. if it is recognised in that computert then you can easily reinstalled the software for your device again..

Wont recognize drive


Try checking your power cord adapter.
I found the same problem was with the cord.
Luckily, I had another Acomdata HD cord to check the problem.

Drive NOT being recognized by WinXP


Put your ear to the drive and verify if it is making any strange low level sounds. Check to make sure the usb connection wasnt affected. YOu wont need a driver as it appears to be hardware related. Either the enclosure or drive may be failing.
