    thankyou this could well be correct could not turn on pc the other day so i have reformated the hard drive and put a fresh os on.But now i have a pc that seems to be slow. I have a 2.66 intel dual core cpu and 2 gig of ram. So i dont think it should be that slow? I have been told by friends it could be new programs i have recently put on.Norton ghost,Nero 8 (particulary nero scout) any ideas how i can find out whats slowing things down? thanks for any help

External keeps telling me not responding

Assuming your talking about an "external" storage device, such as a hard-drive over a USB connection... If the device isn't responding, and ASSUMING it doesn't need external power, and "should" operate over USB (most do)... then it's damaged. If it needed to be formatted, would get a different message. If it's locking up the computer, and not's simply bad and needs to be returned. Sorry :-(

Have you made any recent changes to your computer hardware - new USB ports/hubs?
There may not be enough power getting to the drive for it to power up correctly.
Hope this helps.

SimpleTech 80 GB Portable HD Won't Read

It sounds like a problem with the board inside the case,- the actual hard drive is probably OK. Opening the case will void any warranty but there may not be much left anyway. There should be 4 screws in the bottom of the drive,- front 2 may be hidden under a sticker. Try installing the drive in your new case or an empty drive bay inside your computer. I have had external hard drive cases fail before and the actual hard drive was ok.
