Hi there,
sounds like you have a hardware problem...you should look into trying this drive on another system to see if the same thing is happening without the drive software ...and if it works try to recover all your data from this drive as soon as possible...hardware problems are most time intermittent ... so they work now then say after a while they stop...

I can not boot up my computer


The hard drive or some other critical component may be failing, or just the OS or hard drive corrupted. If you have files that you do not want to lose, you could try this... Pull the hard drive out, and use a "USB Hard Drive Adapter" (available fairly cheap online) to connect the hard drive to a friend's computer, and save all the personal files (documents, pictures, etc.) you can to a folder on the friend's computer or an external hard drive. That way, at least you may not lose your files.
Then, you could try to do a Factory Restore or Reload on the computer, and if that works, copy your personal files back to your newly restored computer.
Your manual, available here, explains your Restore options... http://www.manualslib.com/manual/253469/Gateway-710xl.html#product-LX6810-01 - LX - 8 GB RAM

What type of external hard drive can be added


The motherboard can only take 2 GB of memory. If you tried a larger memory stick in any slot, the motherboard will fail to recognize it. A larger hard drive or an external drive will only increase storage and page file capacity. This will not improve the performance of the computer. Memory caching to the hard drive is limited to the bus speed of the hard drive interface (much slower than the RAM).

The better option if you can offered it is a new computer, if you do any gaming. You are dealing with a 2.8 GHz CPU with a 400 MHz bus. The computer is probably fine for e-mail but video and gaming response will not improve.

I wish that I had better news for you.

Freecom 400GB Hard drive not recognized.its a Freecom mobile drive xxs 400gb , my pc just cant recgnize the hard drive


I'll assume your using Windows.
I'll assume it's a USB drive.
I'll assume it is an external drive.
And I'll assume it's formatted as NTFS.

Try using the USB (or FireWire) port for anouther drive to see if that is the problem, if it is then reinstall the driver for the port, through the Computer Managment Concole (assuming yur using windows).

If you formatted the drive as FAT, re-format it as NTFS.

I have a freecom 400gb external hard drive plugged in to my usb 2.0 port when i turn it on i get a message saying it will perform faster if its plugged into a usb 2.0 port any ideas


This means that although your hard drive is capable of handling usb 2.0 speeds, your PC has the older USB ports or if your PC has USB 2.0 ports, you don't have USB 2.0 drivers installed. You will most likely find USB 2.0 drivers from your motherboard manufacturers website.

Hi, I get an error message when I try to connect and install a Maxtor 500 GB external hard drive to my computer. The message reads "the device cannot start (Code 10). Can you assist?


What is the error message you get?

What OS are you using?

Depends on your hard drive, some computer commonly ask for a driver when you plug something in it. might as well try reading the manual of your external hard drive, if it doesn't require a driver, then the problem "might" be in your operating system and/or in your computer.

Freecom hard drive problem?


Unless you "GHOST" or "CLONE" the programsd over to the harddrive, instead of just copy and paste, they will not open. What you will have to do mo0re than likely is remove the installation files through control panel and reinstall the program onto the external harddrive.

Freecom 250 Gb Hard Drive


Hi des,
you need to install windows XP, on a different hard-drive.
even if it,s only 10 gig plus.
You can then access the drive.
Your problem is here, is that you,ve upgraded from XP to Vista, theres a possibility, that you may have lost or even formatted your freecom hard-drive.
No-Support-Device detected, is saying that your USB devices are not functioning correctly.
Check in the bios that the USB devices are enabled, to operate your hard-drive. ( this is assuming it,s a USB drive )

Hope this helps you out.

Mike @ compurepair.
