Hi,

Try reseating the drive(diconnect & reconnct the drive).

Just try doing flea power & the power cycle.

1. Disconnect all the peripherals like keyboard,mouse,printer,scanner & monitor and power supply from the CPU.

And press & hold the power button for 1 min, it will release the flea power from the mother board.

Restart the system & check.

2. Disconnect everything.wait for 5-10 minutes and then connect every thing & start the system.

Restart the system & check.

Or

Completely shutdown?

That is, shutdown and remove all power from all devices and power bricks for a 10 count and try again?

How about plugging that into another USB port? Some discover some ports will not work, but report "OK".

Or

You can run the diags on the drive, you can get from here

Sounds like bearing in the front of my 1500 chev in four wheel only lound whine


If it whines when in the 4x4 position but not at any other time then the noise you hear may be coming from the transfer case and is caused by the high gear load of driving both axles on a this type of surface. If you are driving in the 4x4 position on any dry hard surface you will hear some noise from the transfer case and usually it is a noticeable whine. Also, driving in 4x4 on a dry/hard surfaces greatly adds to the strain and wear on the power train. It would also be a good idea to have the both axles and transfer case fluid levels checked to be sure none of them are low. Hope this helps a bit and good luck!

Something mechanically has gone wrong with the disk-drive inside the enclosure.

Search online for a professional "data recovery service".
They can disassemble the enclosure, disassemble the disk-drive, and fix it just long-enough to copy your files (onto another disk or onto blank DVD-writable media). Not "inexpensive".

Then, you can use WD's "Customer Loyalty Program", i.e., prove that you previously purchased a WD product, and you'll get a discount on buying another WD product, if you purchase through their web-site (and pay for shipping).

Whining when i press gas


normally, the only part of your automatic transmission that will make a whining noise is the pump. it usually whines when iether the fluid is low or more commonly when the transmission oil filter is getting plugged up.

the power steering pump will also make a whining noise too.

turn the wheel all the way to the right and hold steady pressure against the stop. this puts maximum force on the power steering pump and, if the power steering pump is the one making the whine, it will change the sound of it. (usually louder).

if the trans pump is making the whine noise, it should sound different in neutral compared to drive. this test will really only work if it make the noise without the vehicle moving. if it wont do it at idle hold the rpms at 2000 or so.

if you decide the noise is coming from the transmission, and the transmission filter has not been replaced (assuming you installed a used transmission), replace the filter by removing the oil pan.



oh and also, if it is the power steering pump you should be able to make it make the whining noise while the vehicle is stationary. if it wont make noise unless its moving its not the power steering pump.

My lacie rugged 500gb triple interface normally worked but now doesn't load anymore. It makes a strange soft sound for 2 seconds and then nothing. help!!!!

Open the external hard drive cover, remove the hard disk inside, and fix it back. Try again and let's see what happens.

If it still does not work, insert the external drive into the computer, feel the hard drive if it spins/vibrate from inside or if it makes a cracking noise.

If it spins/vibrate, it means the hard disk is still working. In that case, you have to get another external drive case/cover.

But if it makes cracking noise, then it means the hard drive is damaged and you need to get another one.

I wish you all the best.

Device cannot work


Try cleaning your computer for spyware and viruses. Also try cleaning your registry out using a utility. Do your USB ports on the computer work with any other devices? Try using different USB ports and make sure theres no faults in you device list with the USB drivers. Let me know more info. What OS are you using. By unplugging it without safely removing is most dangerous to Flash memory but it's definitely possible to damage a hard drive by doing so. You might have corrupted your drive. Hope this helps.

E Book 500GB drive does not get power


It sounds like the adapter more than the e-book.
If the adapter plugs into the e-book, remove it and buy another one with the same voltage and correct power orientation. The best way to do this is to take the old adapter with you to any shop that sells electrical equipment - even K-mart has them.
If it's one of the fixed adapters, it's best just to take it to a sparky and have them change the adapter for you, it's a 2 minute job.

Xbox


Sounds like the internal hard drive has failed on the system. The easiest way to remedy this is purchasing a used xbox hard drive off ebay. Unfortunately if it is the hard drive there isn't anything you can do to that drive to fix it. It needs to be replaced.
