Every time i plug my 1TB western digital mybook in my computer freezes and when i shut it down it wont restart until i unplug it from the computer i have no idea what it could be please help


That needs a motherboard drivers upgrade.

What happens is that the BIOS starts detecting and checking booting devices.

Earlier motherboards are not able to detect external hard drives and boot from them.

So the solution to this is to turn off the computer and then disconnect the cable.

Remove safely the HD and then restart.

God Bless You!

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to boot

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your motherboard to your hard drive make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty

Asus M3n78 -vm. western digital 80gb hard drive installed as back up for music files. recognised in set up as sata3 but not able to access drive to copy files to. suggestions please, have updated bios, no...


If this is windows you may need to go to disk management and enable the drive or format it. Unless it is formatted windows will not assign a drive letter to it.

to do so go to control panel/administrative tools/computer management

once computer management is up find disk management, inside you will find all the drives that are connected to your computer, you should find a 80gb drive that may or may not have a partition. if it does not right click on it and say format or enable.

If you have any trouble let me know.

I have a Western Digital 80GB drive that can no


Spooler Ap Not working is a typical printer problem. You need to check the printer system for that. DO you get any kind of message in boot screen? If nothing happens you insert a boot disk and try if it is booting. If that doesn works you might have lost some IC in *********** board.

First, let it cool down. Try booting it without the extra ram chip in it. Make sure your laptop accepts DDR2 553 and make sure that the make of both chips are the same. If they're both different it can cause problems.

No booting


The problem is Operating systems are co-dependent on hardware.
If the motherboards, processors, ram, video adapters, etc don't match you would not be able to swap hard drives and expect to boot.

You could try pressing F8 on boot and try to access safemode.

If it does boot into safemode immediately it will want to reactivate windows.(because of all the hardware changes.

If it still can't boot, you may want to put the 80 gig in as slave to the 40gig and ghost the 40 gg hard drive over to the 80.

If you don't want to lose your data on the 80 gig then reboot with an xppro cd and reinstall windows in the same partition overlaying the installation on top of existing windows directory.

the new windows will have to be activated but all data will still be there.
