Question about SimpleTech SimpleDrive 250GB, 7200RPM, External, USB 2.0 (COMPUSB235250) Hard Drive

1 Answer

I've had this hard drive for over two years now without any problems. Now, all of a sudden, when I try using it, it won't even turn on. It's plugged into the wall and the computer like it should be, but it's not turning on at all. I have all of my music stored on this hard drive and if I lose it all I'll never get it back. Assistance?

If the drive does not turn on at all and there is no lights on. then you could have a faulty power supply. you can take it to your local radio shack to see if they can match up a power supply for you.

otherwise pull the drive out ot the enclosure and plug it directly into the computer to retrieve your data.

Once I turn on the laptop it stays stuck on the LG Splash screen, I press F2 to enter bios setup but it just stays on the splash screen, and nothing progresses, I can't do anything,


I've seen issues like this with a bad hard drive. When entering the bios it queries the hard drive first and it's got issues it can hang it up like this. If you have a spare try that. You can try to boot it without a hard drive to see if it gets past this. Some computers won't boot without a hd though. If you've got another computer you can look around online to make a flash drive bootable and use that instead of your hard drive. Lastly, get a new hd.

NEW MacBookPro crashes! I just bought a new macbookPro and it has crashed on three different programs; won't download the manual from online (get the beach ball) and makes a sound when power-ing u


The two "whirring" noises that you hear on power up is normal. The beauty of having a new macbook is you can reinstall the software very easily and a fresh install should fix your problem. Put the disk that came with the machine into the disk drive and turn the computer off. Turn it back on and press and HOLD the "alt" button until you are given the option of booting from your hard drive or your disk. Choose the disk and when it boots up, FIRST go to disk utility and verify the hard drive. If it comes back with no problems, proceed with the fresh install of the system by following the prompts on the disk.

Won't see hard drive


Try just removing both cables from the back of the hard drive for about 30 seconds then plug them back in.

Check inside your bios for Large Drive Support or AHCI. If you see AHCI try changing it's setting and see if the drive is recognized. I've seen many times where just changing the AHCI makes the drive suddenly appear.

Is the PC you've used before is the operating system is windows Xp? If you've using windows Xp before then you've plug it in a windows 7 Operating system, it means your hard disc have no problem the operating system of your PC is different than before. Try to plug it in a windows Xp operating system then recover it in there then format it in a windows 7 operating system then, the windows Xp and windows 7 try to make a network place in the connection then share the hard disc files that you've recovered then copy and paste it in the newly format hard drive that formated in a windows 7 operating system.
