Sounds like the hard drive has died how old is it they get quite warm and there on 24 7 so they generally have short life spans .

FYI the Flouron factory went bust a few months ago. The hardware is cheap and nasty. Your problem however seems to be the HDD or the HDD cable. I would replace the HDD cable first and if no luck change the HDD. If your DVR is stuck on the startup screen you can unplug the HDD to see if it will boot up. If it does then you know its getting stuck on the HDD.

SOURCE: WD Passport Hard Drive Malfunction

Unfortunately, you have probably lost all the files on the drive. It may be possible to take it to a PC Repair shop and have them run specialist software on it, although the clicking sound indicates a hardware failure, rather than software. You have my deepest apologies, but this does happen... although rarely.

Ok.  I have a WD 500 and I have ran into similar problems.  First, shut your computer down.  Unplug the hard drives USB cable and the power cable.  Wait for about 2 minutes.  Plug the USB cable into the computer, plug the power cord in...wait for 30-45 seconds and then start your computer.  That hopefully should solve your issues.

SOURCE: Simpletech 500 GB Hard Drive not working

The red light is an indicator of drive failure. The fall it took, especially if the drive was on at the time, could easily cause the drive to break something internally so that it will not function. I found SimpleTech drives to fail pretty easily, even when you're not dropping them. That's been my experience, anyway.

Data recovery is a very expensive proposition. If the hard drive doesn't respond to the interface as normal, they have to be pulled apart and data extracted from the internal platters. This isn't something you can do without a full safe room (dust-free, wearing special suits and all) because any dust can ruin the platter. Since it's so involved, it's usually really, really expensive. Generally, most people don't bother when it reaches that point unless it's business files (like all of your financial data, for instance).

However, if it's something you really need that bad, DriveSavers is one of the best:

Hi. i lost my sound on hp dv 8113 cl few days ago


  • Hi, the best thing to do at this point is perform a "System Restore." Try to remember the exact "Date before the problem occur, or once you start the System Restore, ("pick a date going back more than 5 days"), check the dates and see if any of the dates seem familar. Pick the closest date prior to the "Sound going out!" Type in the "Search Window" from the start menu: system restore; scroll to find, and open. Follow all the instructions carefully for the process to be successful. "Hope it works out for you; if so rating the help will let me know, thanks."

Engine skipping/misfiring, engine light flashing


Drive it into a dark place, or wait till dark. When it's running poorly, see if you can see any spark flying around. It sounds like plug wires.

Knocking sound


Does this knocking sound change/subside when you pull in the clutch lever? As the clutch baskets wear or go bad they develop free play between the basket and the drive gear that is riveted to it. Since you don't know ''dick" about bikes i suggest you either pick up a shop manual or go see dick, who hopefully knows more than you! Internet diagnosis can git a bit complex, especially when you don't know your way around the machine! You may get a ton of suggestions but following them thru may be beyond you abilities?
