SOURCE: External hard drive has spontaneously

the beeps are post during post the very first work is done by the ram all the memory in the ram is first transferred to the hard disk and remains active until turned off.
make sure that your RAM is securely seated,
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll down universal serial bus controllers you should see a yellow question mark?
right click to reinstall drivers
when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable just replace the cable of the hard disk everything should work fine again, sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable,
check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems
hope this helps

SOURCE: The Hardrive is now beeping and the blue light only flashes once. And my laptop isn't recognising it. Everything I have is stored on it?

click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager look through all of your devices if you see a yellow question mark?or exclamation mark ! or red x
right click to reinstall drivers or


if you can see your usb but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver


sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable


just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work fine again,

check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems

if this fails to fix the problem
type in run "regedit" then press ok then you can see registry editor then locate below key. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11 CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} And remove upper filter and lower filter.

Then restart computer then check.


Also locate the below key and make sure it's value is 3 not 4. HKLM\system\currentcontrolset\services\usbstor make sure start value is 3 not 4


if still no luck
you might have to install a usb 2 or 3 card they are cheap and easy to install you can buy these on Ebay very cheap
hope this helps

Black screen on laptop


When it is in that state, try hooking it up to an external display. Also look for a extremely faint image on the screen. If it's really faint you have a bad back light, if you see nothing but you get a display on an external monitor it's probably the display going bad.

I have a verbatim 320GB externam hard drive the model is CLON320GB. One day it just stopped registering on the computer. At first it woulod make a constant beeping noise when I plugged it in but would not...


Hi,

From the information provided, it appears to be a direct hardware failure. Verbatim appears to not offer much on providing information on such issues, so it would be safe to say is have it replaced.. I am not 100% sure but some external drives come with a 7 year warranty, you could also try to have your data recovered from a local computer service in your area so you do not lose the data. But, in all it would be advised to replace it.

Gateway ml3108b laptop wont start up


shine a flashlight on the screen. if you see a faint image, its the backlight thats the problem and you will need to get a new one to fix that. But if you dont see a faint image you will need to hook it up to an external monitor( an monitor that is not made into the laptop) , and if you see an image on the monitor you will have to clear the CMOS.
and to do that you will need to take out the battery, the plug, and hold down the ON button for about 30-60 seconds. Well thats how you clear it on most laptops. But if it does'nt work on the external monitor you probally have a bad video chip and need to replace your old one.

Dell inspiron 5150 dark screen, faint image in background


If it showed a pinkish tint on the screen before it went out it could be the backlite. If you can see a faint screen when you turn the room lights out it chuld be the inverter. Inverters are cheap ... a used one for around $8 on ebay. Try that first. Make sure that you buy the EXACT model that is presently in your laptop.

I have a packard bell EASYNOTE MZ36 the screen has gone blank, not even a faint image on the screen. but works fine on a external monitor?


First try and press and hold the FN key and then press the F4 key. The screen will disappear from the external monitor and should appear on Laptop. Try a few times and see what happens. This is a common problem and usually can either be a keying error or the back light operation of LCD screen needs replacement. Cost can vary from $70 - $150 AU. Go to ebay and find if there is a replacement for you. See how you go and let me know!
