Question about Samsung 1TB SATA2 7200RPM 32MB HD103UJ 334 GB SATA Hard Drive
I use docking station for my 1tb hard drive. and the i connect it to my laptop. after shutting down my laptop makes a sound and after i couldn't boot my laptop again. i send it to the service center and eventually i have to change my laptop mainboard. it cost me around $300 and it's a large amount. whatever it is i just want to know is it a problem to connect a 1tb external hard drive to a laptop or maybe a problem if i use a docking station to connect my 1tb hard drive to the laptop? should i use the usual casing?
If you are connecting via a USB port and your HD docking station has no power supply of its own that could cause problems that might relate back to the motherboard. If that was the case then you should consider a proper USB HUB with its OWN power supply. This might avoid your problem from happening again.
many laptop usb ports cannot deliver the correct current AND voltage if many of them are being used at the same time. Manufacturers save money by building machines for "average" use and not for long term reliability and use. The average user may only plug a printer into his / her laptop and maybe a mouse. Not many treat a laptop the same way a desktop user would.
