First make sure usb cable connected to harddrive is working fine.
try it in different usb ports.
Press windows key +R key so you can see run then type in run "devmgmt.msc" then press ok so you can see device manager uninstall all usb drivers then it automatic install usb drivers.
then check.
Also you need to change registry for that type in run "regedit" then press ok then you can see registry editor then locate below key.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11 CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
And remove upper filter and lower filter.Then restart computer then check.
Try your harddrive in different computer if it is not recognized on another computer too then your harddrive has internal issue.

Let me know if you need further assistance.

Hp 1315v all-in-one printer will not recognize cartridge. Does anyone know how to bypass the coding that tells it to not recognize the cartridge?


This page addresses what to do if you get different blinking lights on the printer. Match up the blinking light on this page with the light on your computer. Then click the plus sign to expand the page and view the solutions. The solutions for blinking cartridge light are not easily pasted here and I can't bookmark to that solution.

Blinking Lights

One thing to keep in mind with ink cartridge problems is that the cartridge has a warranty as well. You might consider checking back with HP using the warranty on your cartridge.

No computer of mine recognizes this printer and the left drip light keeps blinking even though i have repalced it


If by referring to the left drip light you mean the bottom left light; this is the indicator light for the color ink cartridge:
Left print cartridge light blinks, Power light on. Tri-color print cartridge is damaged or missing.
? Reinstall the print cartridge. If the error persists, replace the print cartridge.

? You can still print with one cartridge


it is possible that once the computer and printer are communicating that the error messages could also be resolved by running the printer diagnostic program.


If your computers do not recognize the printer, uninstall the driver, if you had installed a specific driver, and then go to the site below to download a driver for your operating system and specific printer:

Hi,

I experienced the same problem yesterday with my modem,the internet is down as a result of the fact that the computer doesn't recognize the remote modem,hence the dsl light blinks red,when the internet is up the dsl lights should blink green,the problem is mostly from your internet provider,few times from your computer.

The solution is so simple;

1.Remove the modem from your computer.
2.Shut down your computer.
3.Turn on your computer again after at least 3mins.
4.Insert the modem in your computer and connect to the internet.
5.It might take up to a few attempts before it gets connected to the internet.

Problem solved.

It could be a problem with the lens, you should try cleaning the lens, it's already gone bad there is no harm in trying

if that doesn't work you can either repalce the lens or purchase a new DVD/CD drive

Green light blinking, won't turn off and can't print anything


unplug your usb or any cord that links to your printer...
then press and hold the power button of your printer (it should force your printer to shutdown)

then plug-in your usb cord (connector/cable) back to your computer then turn in you printer again... wait for your computer to recognize it

(note the green light blinking is an indication that the printer is busy) therefore you should wait for it to be recognize (note: a sound maybe heard once your computer recognize it, some may appear as pop-up)

it should be ok now make sure you still have ink in your cartridge
