My hard drive stopped working.

I see your hard drive stopped working, any errors on the Hard drive when trying to turn the system on? do you get a blue screen? or just a black screen when the system is turned on?
Try going into safe mode, turn the computer ON then keep on tapping F8 to get the options menu select safe mode see if windows will boot p from there then you can back up any files you need and most likely reinstalling windows will be best to avoid the problem from happening again.
Also reinstalling windows will give you more details if the hard drive the the one that caused it to top or a different device.
If reinstalling stops and gives you a blue screen then most probably the hard drive is faulty or shall I say not anymore bootable, but if it works on safemode then you can try reinstalling windows see if windows installs then great, but if it result to a blue screen you will have to find out what is causing that...
this can be a faulty RAM on the system or a faulty Video Card if your video card is an expansion video card not a built in video card.
Also if you hear a clicking noise from the Hard Drevie then the problem is the HDD itself and needs replacing.

I can't reach the files on my hard Disc. the pc reconised it but it doesn't work. it tell to format all. can I do something else to keep my files?

If it tells you to format it then that means that the files are corrupted. This can happen due to removing the usb hard drive without stopping the hard drive first. To stop it first you need to
1. Right click on the new icon that if you rollover it says removeable storage device
2. click stop
3. Then click stop and choose the device that you want to stop and hit stop again

You can use a program such as TestDisk to try and recover your files.

Why does my hard drive blink


The light blinks to show you that the hard drive disc is working. It should stop after a while, but if not then you need to run a virus scan through it to make sure there are no bugs in it.

Virus can cause it to keep seeking and making the light stay on.

My iomega drive just keeps blinking and my computer can't access it. I have two drives to store my music and I'm not sure if it was the power source or my laptop but both stopped working and all I have is...

Dear tmetal,

Hard drive anda memiliki external power source atau hanya menggunakan USB cable ?
I think it's a problem power source, power from the notebook is weakening, therefore it is not enough voltage to your hard drive.
To make sure, try connect your Hard Drive to other computer.

Drive is a blinking brick of garbage.

Is the hard drive a USB external device?
Does the hard drive spin up at all or does it make clicking sounds?
If the hard drive spins it may not be faulty, it may be a faulty USB hard drive adapter case.
Put the hard drive in another USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a computer, if it still doesn't work then the hard drive has died.

Emachines pc keeps saying hard drive is failing

What kind of resources are you pulling on the pc everyday? For example are you doing heavy writing to the drive everyday such as video editing, ripping etc and how much air flow is your pc getting. If the case gets too hot or warm for long periods of time it can cause the hard drive to fail quickly. Lastly check your power supply male sure its pputting out the proper voltage to the computer specifially the connection to the hard drive. If its not stable the nit will cause your hard drive to fail.

Hard drive fan stop working computer stop, yes I have power but but,computer will not tyrn on

The hard drive does not have a fan unless you put one on it. The hard drive is inside the computer and had a company name on it such as Maxtor, Seagate, Toshiba etc.
Did you unplug the fan that stopped working? If the fan is your processor fan, it might have burned up your computer. I have seen the entire motherboard go bad on a computer, just because a fan stopped working.
What make and model computer is it? If it is a laptop, it might be damaged beyond repair. Let me know more information, and I will keep trying to help you get the problem resolved.
