Question about Maxtor Fusion 500GB External Ethernet (DHB01Q500)
My hard drive was knocked off the table and landed on the carpet. It was plugged in at the time. It's power is working because i can see the green light, but it's making this sound and when i connected it to the computer it doesnt say it's connected...so i can't open up any files! please help!
Computers do not like being dropped especially when it is powered up and running. It can do a heaps of damage.
If the hard drive in the computer makes a clicking sound and it won't boot up and/or an error message says it cannot find the hard disk or operating system, then the hard disk is damaged beyound repair.
With luck if the hard disk is only damaged then you can replace the hard drive and install Windows on the new hard drive with the device drivers and your programs. Your data on the old hard drive is gone unless you backed up your data onto CD, flash drive etc.
