Disconnect printer,/scanner, camera, USB stick connected to the computer. Try to start it in safe mode by hitting F8 key at the start-up.

Computer does not recognize Maxtor OneTouch


Hi,

Sounds like you need to remove the cable, uninstall the software, Restart, and then shut down. Now, from a cold power off power on. I know this seems tedious, but it has to do with the Last Known Good Recovery File and what is in Device Manger.

Now reinstall the software and if the software should call for you to "now" connect the USB cable, do so only when prompted or when the installer is done. Re: the latter, attach the cable. Windows ill say it discovered new hardware, point windows to your CD drive where the installer disk is located and allow Windows to locate the software.

Shut down and restart and your drive should be recognized now when you have a desktop. If not, post this back using the comment box below.

When replying to mine or anyone else's reply please address us in your reply, such as Worldvet: that doesn't make sense, please explain. And so on and so forth. This allow US to track what you've tried and from whom you were provided the solution.

Thank you for you indulgence on this. And, please be aware that, we all here want to see you fixed up and on your way. We all have a pretty good track record. However, there are times when a repair from a warranty service center is the only solution. However, I'm certain we all can get you taken care of and thanks for using Fix Ya.

Regards,
Worldvet

Please make sure all devices are connected to your computer properly. Access it in safe mode and I am sure it would run, in in the safe mode just clean Windows registry database using some reliable software such as Reginout Cleaner. After cleanup process, start your computer normally.

Hope it would help you.

Trying to get my maxtor II to work with windows 07 software but it wont read the usb connection? After i have installed the software for maxtor.


Check Control Panel, System, Device Manager and make sure windows see's the connection. If you see a yellow triangle, that means the drivers are not correct. If you don't see it at all, that is a problem. Give Maxtor a call. You may need to update your motherboard bios, chipset drivers. At worst, you might have a problem with the motherboard or maxtor II device.

Blank/black screen at power on


This is hopefully a possible fix. I have encountered a similar problem with windows xp and vista. the fix I found that will eliviate this problem and a startup-reboot-startup-reboot... If you have your original windows (xp or vista) CD lounch it like you would do to do a system install. As the installation starts it will show ask you if you would like to do a recovery using the recovery console, just press ESC and go on. Press the F8 to accept the license. If Windows is not completly broke, it will find the original installation on your hard drie. It will ask if you want to repair. Press the R key and windows will reinstall your operating system, without destroying your software or data. After it is done the system will go to the windows startup screen. You will need your windows product key located on your machine or on the original software packaging.
I hope this will fix your problem.

Windows start up failure


Sounds like you could have faulty RAM or your HD has bad read/write sectors on it. Difficult to say without swaping out parts. Take it to a shop so they can figure out what needs to be replaced.

Maxtor One Touch Mini Issue


Somehow find another XP system to test your MAXTOR. I would suspect a connection problem with the docking station and/or a USB PCI card compatibility issue. PCI USB expansion cards are notorious for chipset/driver related problems.

Just got a Maxtor MaxAttach 4300 used and need to reset to factory...


Since no one has posted on this I?ll give you my best guess. Disclaimer, I don?t have one of these, Maxtor is now owned by Seagate, they have discontinued support and I can?t find a manual. Having said all of that from what I?ve read this runs Windows 2000 server and allows you to physically connect a keyboard, mouse and monitor to it. I would try connecting these external devices to the box, boot up and try logging in. If you literally don?t know ANY of the passwords you can try booting the system with a utility tool that will find and remove the administrator password. There are several of them readily available (usually Linux based) available for free, here is the link for one: http://home.eunet.no/%7Epnordahl/ntpasswd/. That will allow you to log into the operating system and configure it as you wish. Be aware that this is not supported by Microsoft and could wind up corrupting the operating system. At that point the only option would be to rebuild the server software from scratch. Good luck and let us know how it goes or if you have any other questions.
