Open your unit and gently push all your card back into their sockets. After a unit has been sitting for a long time and you move it, it may loosen the cards in the slots. While your in the unit, use a plastic nozzle and vaccum out the dust. May use a clean/dry paint brush to help clean. NO POWER during this cleaning. Also check with a slight tug any cable connections on the MB.

Good luck

HI.. I see someone else posted a solution when I didn't get the chance so please just verify all your cords are connected and that you do have power coming out of that particular outlet.. if after this you still find there is not powere then you may need to take it in depending on how old it is.. there may have been some short in the wiring somewhere or something became loose when it was moved.. please rate with the understanding that it is hard to see what was exactly done.. maybe it was unplugged before turning off first which could very likely short it out.. i hope this gets resolved.. how old is you computer and much memory does it run on?

My seagate free agent desk 500 gb makes beeping sound when I plug in the power cord. it does make sound, feels like disk moving/ vibration when plugged in but beeps and does not register or pick up signal...

This sounds most likely like there is media/platter damage occurring if you feel the motor turning. Nothing you can fix on your own, you need a professional with a clean room to examine the issue.

Try unplugging the power cord for 2 mins from the dead computer. Take out the plug from the computer. Your motherboard needs a reboot. let me know if that works.

Hello- carriage jam

I was just getting ready to pull the plug on this printer of mine, and order a new one, when I happened on a solution that worked...

Unplug the unit.
Open the top.
Move the carriage to the left.
CLEAN the black plastic tray that the ink cartridge "parks" over - it seems to collect gunky ink that impedes the movement of the cartridge... also clean the "rail" hehind it. I used a Windex knock-off -- and Q-Tips, somebody else said they used alcohol.

Seems to have done the trick for me. I wasted so much time downloading drivers thinking that it was a hardware problem :-(

No external drive icon on desk top

This happened to me as well - i have been reading that it could be the power supply adaptor. If you can try another one - it might solve the problem. The adaptors seem to either be faulty or made to stop working. Great news for us the consumer!!
