Computer hangs regularly, usually after just over an hour. But occasionally after a few minutes. Attempts to check 1TB disc unsuccessful (Extended WinDlg122) because computer freezes half way through...


Sounds like 1tb hard drive is passing quick test and then freezing extended test. And if it doesnt freeze during the 200gb test then I would guess the 1tb is going bad. Check the event viewer in windows under system and see if there are any Disk errors with a red X and that ideall will say disk drive 1 or 2 cant read it and yeah that would help confirm it is failing.

1. Download the test to your computer.
2. Run the application install and choose the defaults. Once installed, the application will be placed under a "Lenovo Services" choice on your Start Menu.

The hard drive is flashing red and blue. Is it done?


Hi,

Even though it is possible that your USB hard driveis corrupt, but

before you finally conclude, try out these few troubleshooting

steps.

First of all, it is possible that the USB port that you are using is a

USB 1.0 port, which has a lower voltage not enough to

power on your Storage drive.

In this case, there are two things you can do,

1. Change the USB port you are using for the storage drive to a

USB 2.0 one (Just keep Checking all the ports one by one in case

you dont know which one it is).

2. If your Storage drive has external power facility, just plug it in

an external power first, before connecting it to the system.

If there are no USB 2.0 Ports on your system at all,

then just go to any electronic store and tell them you want to buy

a USB 2.0 Expansion card.

and if it is a laptop, A USB 2.0 PCMCIA card.

Install it on your system, and connect your external drive through it.

Meanwhile, before you try out the second option, test the drive on

a friend's system, that you are sure has a very good system, with

USB 2.0 port.

If after trying out all these, the USB Drive still doesn't work, then

I'm afraid, the drive might have been bad/spoilt.

Kindly keep me posted about the problem and let me know how it

goes

Hope this helps you out.

Thank you for using Fixya

Goodluck

USB External hard drive 160 GB not recognized by desktop Windows XP OS


Very possible your problem is that this drive is not externally powered and your desktop does not put out enough power to drive it.  I'm guessing your desktop is older.  Especially if your desktop is USB 1.0 this problem would occur.  Your best bet in this case is to either mount a newer USB expansion card into your desktop, or get another externally powered harddrive and transfer data over to it from this one with your laptop.
