If you're a user of Windows XP or Windows Vista, Microsoft includes a program called Error Checking which can perform some very basic tests and can even attempt to correct errors as it finds them. Most other free hard drive testing programs are supported by the hard drive manufacturers themselves and are much more powerful. Seagate, Hitachi, and Western Digital all make very popular testing programs.Some of the best hard drive testing software programs are free.

There is no SERVICEABLE part inside a hard disk drive. and opening it destroys the device since it is made that way.

Transmission


A/T or M/T (auto or stick ,we dont know)
n moving in drive, reverse or Low or 1? or 2? (me too lazy to look what tranny you have)
it can be 2 things
1: lack of engine power
2: bad clutch or transmission

who do we tell? easy
you step on gas , RPM goes way high and MPH dont. (slips)
tranny slip.
you step on gas, RPM tracks with MPH, good ,
you then do the 5second max. tranny stall test in every car FSM made. and see the stall speed, with brakes hard set.
too high is tranny slip
way to low, engine power POOR.

alldata.com has all this on tranny. stall speed.
the FSM turn to on car A/T service, see STALL test.
bingo.
or youtube the vast number of videos on topic, stall.


wont move at all ,can be :
brake drag (passes stall test)
but first , the tests are, for bad engine or trans,
pick the one it is , state so, and we can go much farther.

It sounds like your brake powerbooster is going out. If it has a vacuum leak or a seal that is bad it will loose the boost part of the brakes and basically comes to manual braking. It sounds as if the seal behind the diaphram, the side closest to the driver is bad allowing the vacuum from the engine to basically put the brakes on. Good luck and let me know.

Have your brake system inspected, you have a fault somewhere...could be your low on fluid or you need to change your brakes....hard to know without inspecting.

I'm getting a code 10; cannot start device on my maxtor 3200 . The power light is on, but it no longer functions.


What is wrong with your drive is probably what was wrong with my drive. After two whole days of gut wrenching about should I or shouldnt I take the darn box apart , I took it apart figuring well it is a code 10 and Seagate ( bought maxtor) tells you that the drive has probably failed.
I took mine apart and found a printed circuit board that was attached to a standard IDE drive. I took the board off and plugged the now IDE drive into a spare IDE cable and power connection, turned on my computer and crossed my fingers. Lo and Behold the "CODE 10" DEAD HARDDRIVE WAS ALIVE!!! my guess is that the circuit boards overheat as their are very little air flow slots for this drive and something lets go between the hard drive and the connections. So dont throw it away , carefully pry open the plastic case and remove the hard drive and the printed circuit board ( you have to unscrew the metal cage around both and take out the 3 screws in the printed circuit board. then carefully separate the board from the hard drive . At least you should be able to recover your data on the hard drive. I ran a quality test on the hard drive after I copied all the files from it and there is not one sector wrong on the whole drive. This may not be the solution you are looking for but in the least you are not throwing away a possibly good hard drive. Patience is the rule in prying the case open ( I did it with two medium screwdrivers and started at the hole in the case near the connectors that is rectangular in shape. I too had the lights are on but nobody's home syndrome. Good luck

My odometer stopped counting. All of my other gauges work. Does anyone know how I can fix it? Thank you


If the speedometer does work and the odometer does you know that the speed senser is working. I think that your model has a mechanical display and not digital, The handy with tools watchmarker perfect repairs in your history you can do this otherwise hire it done. The instrument cluster can be removeded and disassembled. the odometer plugs into the circiut board and persons nailing the trip odometer button can work the plug loose, work the plug ( clean connections replug a few times) then reinstall watching the connection of the cluster to the dash also ( work it too ) Assemble and test.

Rear right/left brake light don't work,top center brake light doe


Do the non working bulb holders have power at the bulb terminals?If not back track to the one that works.The flow of power or earth is bad and its probably happening between working and non working.Do you have a trailer plug?make sure the joins are secure.Maybe two wires touching?Have you put an earth to one of the bulb holders that dont work.Try taking the working bulb out and see if the others light up,Hard to do or suggest test without vehicle there to work on and makes it hard not knowing exactly what tests youve done but suggested a couple in the hope that theres something that helps.Good luck

if your PC still works sounds like the circiut board in the hard drive enclosure may have fried.you can take apart the external hard drive enclosure and install the hard drive into the PC and use as a second hard drive( but be sure to jumper the slave pins on the second drive).Your PC should recognize the second drive and then you can click on my computer and the dbl click the second drive and see if your data is there.
