Question about Seagate (ST3100203U2-RK) (ST3100203U2RK) 100 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

Power supply Adaptor

Usually when the hard drive is running the adaptor seems to die and wont come back on till the adaptor is unplugged, sometimes when not plugged up to the hard drive it dies until unplugged, i want to know if this problem is fixable because i cannot afford a new adaptor for it yet. This has started happening today just a few days after the warranty ran out grrr.

Just to be sure, is it the power supply that is faulty, or the harddrive 'case'?

If you have a separate power supply, you can find a new one for something like 15-20$

Seagate external hard drive usb and power adaptor


any power adaptor would do it as long as the voltage is good (usually 12v) and amperes is the same or higher than what's written in your hard drive enclosure (usually 1Ampere = 1000mA) is good enough, some HDDs use up to 2000mA
Usb cable is very easy to find
you can find those at any electronic parts selling or ebay

By SEPARATE I am taking that to mean an external drive and not an internal mounted drive. If IT IS external the same power supply should work fine as the drive motors are the same in both models. IF IT IS Internal then the question is whether your power supply is molex or ATA.

My v2000 will not come on at all? I have it plugged in with the adapter and it's like there is no power to it at all?


check power supply adaptor and batteries if they are supplying enough power, if you can borrow a power adaptor and spare battery try replacing them with one your notebook has.
if it works then your adaptor and batter are out, normaly if the adaptor stops working the battery would have died down too as you would have not noted till the notebook totally died down.

I have 3in1 USB 2.0 to IDE & SATA Cable but nothing to show me how to use this kit


SATA 3.5" 2.5" IDE 3 IN 1 TO USB 2.0 CABLE ADAPTOR KIT

1 external connection kit
1 internal connection kit

The internal connect kit consists of 1 red USB connector cable
and 1 internal white male molex connector to SATA female power connector
( 1 yellow wire , 2 black wires , 1 red wire )

the external connect kit
consists of a 3 pin power adaptor (with a tiny plug to save space) feeding a power supply which powers either IDE thru a Molex connector or SATA through a supplied adaptor. Supplied also are data connectors to link the IDE or SATA hard drive with a USB port. Use this adaptor set to retrieve data from a hard drive when it is not mounted in a computer.

Packard Bell w3910 d - Doesn't charge or get power from AC adaptor.


Sorry to say, power supply for laptop is harder to repair then PC (but repair able). You will need to get access to the board.
Maybe get a standalone battery charger ?
