This cause is maybe the memory of the system is lessen, you can fix that by removing and clean the moemory and then fix it back.

u can test the mainboard and processor if working. start the system w/o memory the system beeps.

on that case we can sure that memory something wrong.

fix also the any connection inside the computer.
any problem arise please notify for further instruction.

because of the power off on that will have messed up your trans-fare in that it will have corrupted your hard drive if you can still access the drive reformat it then use a recovery software to get the deleted files even when its been formatted it still leaves a fingerprint so the files may still be there

My Maxtor one touch has stopped being picked up by my computer when plugged in. When power source is plugged in led light (white) just blinks and never turns solid


You said it has stopped being picked up when plugged in so I hope this is note is relevantbut I don't think it is abnormal for it just to blink.

If the OneTouch does not appear in My Computer or cannot befound by Maxtor Manager, right click on My Computer icon and select Properties,Device Manager, Disc drives, and expand Disc Drives.

There may be ayellow overlay over Maxtor drive, to show it has a problem, so right click onit and select 'Choose drivers for this device' to reinstall them.

Without goingonline they seem to be found and reinstalled from somewhere locally on the PC and I hope this willdo the trick.
Also in case this helps, I don't find the OneTouch (Maxtor Manager) software appears when the driveis plugged in, so I think this is normal too.

You should look for an icon (a capital M within a blue disc) for Maxtor Managerin the taskbar, at the bottom right of the PC's screen.

Right clicking on this icon, (capital M), should bring up awindow with Maxtor Manager at the top.

Then click on the text 'Maxtor Manager' to open the program's window.

Hope this is what you wanted.

Connect it to a different computer. If it still is not detected, then there is a hardware problem. Exercise the warranty to get it repaired/replaced.

Computer not recognizing my Maxtor hard drive


Andrew, That Maxtor drive sounds like it has finally died on you and being just an 80 gig drive means its really old. The systems failure to read the drive as your booting up is what's causing the long boot delay as the system will see the controller board of the drive, but your spindle motor on that drive is most likely dead and there fore you will not be able to access or read any of your data stored on that drive. Hope you had backups of important files.

Have you tried right clicking on the drive and going into properties. Click on security option and make sure that all the permissions for the drive are active with the exception of special permissions. Also look at the advanced security settings and make sure that you have full control permissions. Hope this helps.

Try it in another computer if you have one. Or...try it in another USB port on your desktop PC. I would see if it appears in the device manager. If so, and you don't get a drive letter, try running
'diskmgmt.msc' and looking to see if the drive pops up under available drives.
