Try checking it on a different computer to make sure the disk itself is still okay. When you plug it, does it power up? There are a few things you can try on your USB port to fix external HDD problems.

PXE-E61 ERROR
The error PXE-E61: Media test failure usually means the hard disk has failed or the hard disk needs re-seating or the disk controller is faulty.
First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If this does not work then reboot and go to the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Next - to determine if the hard drive is faulty, remove the hard drive and insert it into an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. If this computer cannot see it as an USB mass storage device (external hard drive) and you cannot open the various folders and files, this confirms the hard drive is faulty.
The hard drive needs to be replaced in the laptop or desktop computer and Windows installed including the laptop or computer's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning laptop or desktop computer again.

Bios does not recognize USB, Hard Drive, or Sata in dimension 8400


The hardware that you are trying to access is damaged or failing.


The device drivers for the hardware are faulty or incompatible.


There is a connection problem such as a bad cable

for internal hard drives


Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA


the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO THE HARD DRIVE make sure they have a

secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty if its a flat 40pin ide


this will be the first to fail


make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty


or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs power and data to travel through every working device and continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

If it still wont start

Restart your computer press the "F2" key when your computer's first screen appears to open your computer's BIOS.

For a Dell, this would be the Dell screen and not the Windows screen; same for an HP, etc.


The specific key to open your computer's BIOS may differ, but your opening screen should state which key it is.


Using the arrow keys locate the drives section of your BIOS.

You may have to browse a bit as this will vary based on the make and model of your computer.


As long as you aren't making any changes, you won't create any problems.


Check to see that your new SATA hard drive appears in the list of drives in your BIOS.

You may need to add it using the BIOS auto discovery or adjust some settings.


Follow the onscreen instructions for doing either of these.


Hope this helps.

even something as small as a faulty fan lead can cause this problem

a computer needs all of the data and electrical current to travel through every working device and to have an end to be able work properly


motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail


make sure all of you your drives power and data leads have secure connections

make sure the CPU central processing unit has a dust free secure seating thermal paste and dust free and is securely seated


make sure your computer ram modules are securely seated with no dust in sockets

Cmos battery has charge with no dust in the socket some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in

Black screen not booting


check both your power and video connections to the monitor, sounds more like a monitor power issue.
if the connections appear ok, but screen still blank, try connecting a known good working monitor from somewhere else and see if it works with your pc, if it does, your original monitor is faulty, if it doesn't, you have a pc video issue.
