    Can you please post the model of the hard drive as well as any other information you have about it? If you can provide that information, we might be able to look up the wattage/voltage of the ac adapter and find a replacement online.

WD 500aaks that has no power supply how to get info from this to new computer

If the drive is working, you can buy an external hard drive enclosure and connect the drive through the USB port.

Or did you mean that the hard drive is not working properly?

My dv9700 came up with startup system error in windows 7..error wont allow this to boot and telling me to replace hdd..can i repair this instead

Chances are you need a new (bigger) Power supply in it and a new hard drive. The power supply did not provide enough power to the hard drive at some time recently and the files written to it by windows have been corrupted.

I just installed a new power supply and now i get a message saying cd rom medium i then stat it up with my recovery disk it asks what language and that it will reboot the system to factory...

Installing a new power supply should not involve any recovery process. You may have corrupted the hard drive some how prior to the power supply going out. And, if it has taken a significant amount of time to process the recovery, the recovery partition in the hard drive may have been affected as well. You're probably going to need the actual recovery disc to reformat the hard drive - chances are the hard drive is just corrupted and is still good.

I have an external freecom 400gb hard drive

The chances are that you would have burnt the Power IC's, so there might not be any damage to the Hard Disk itself. you culd try buying a cheap External Enclosure at the closest IT store or moun the Hard drive on to a desktop computer. you should be able to retrive the data.

80gb ultra travel drive is not recognized by computer when the hard drive is attaced to it. the main board is just fin that plugs into the usb but when I attach the hard drive to it the computer no longer...

One thing is if the drive draws more than the alloted .5 amp from the USB it the motherboard will turn off the power. SOME of these drives require a 5 volt external power supply. Some of them rob two USB ports to get adequate power.

WD External Hard drive does not work no power to it

External drives tend to use power supplies at 12V DC and 1 amp or just a little bit over. You could read the output of the power supply with a digital volt meter. If you have power and the enclosure still refuses to turn on, you could buy another enclosure, another power supply, or just a naked USB to IDE adapter and pull the drive out of the existing enclosure.

Chances are, the drive you get out of the housing will never be going back into that case.

POwer supply failure

Hi John,

Had the same problem with a WD Elements 320 GB drive, and found a WD customer service number. They are sending me a FREE replacement. I have put the details on a message somewhere on this site, but can't direct you to it.

The number from Australia is : 1800 429 861 ( routed to Singapore )

Email Address : Western Digital Customer Service .

Send them details of your mailing address, drive model and serial number, and a description of your power supply. ( my power supply had a model number moulded on the back )

Hope this helps

Upgrading a har drive on a desktop is pretty easy. just open the case (while powered down) pull out the hard drive and copy down the make and model. go to a computer store or online to newegg and buy a bigger drive in the same interface (ie. IDE or sata).

there is usually detailed instructions has to how to do the data swap and how to set the jumpers on with the new drive.

Another option you have, would be to purchase an external enclosure for the hard drive and it would then connect via USB cable. These enclosures are usually about $30, and the device works quite well as an external drive as long as you have USB 2.0

This would enable you to access all the information on that drive *and* you could use it as a backup drive for your main hard drive as well.

Good Luck!
