Try replacing all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your motherboard to hard drive
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 are probably old and faulty ?
good luck

My Western Digital External Drive is not working. When I plug it into my laptop it starts to run and shortly stops with one blinking light. It is not recognized by my mac.


Observe the device details to ascertain compartibilties. For example devices that are manufacturer for apple mac computers least get recognised on microsoft computers. usually the observation on the pheripheral device with mac logos is prior indication of likely incompartibilty to microsoft computers.

When i plug in my u.are.u 4000 sensor into my computer, the computer does not even recognise the device. How can i get the computer to recognise it?


DigitalPersona u are U 4000 is obsolate never the less (not supported any longer), you can still use it.
1. Uninstall the former one that you installed then Download the new driver at http://www.digitalpersona.com/support/downloads/software-updates/reader-driver-dp0002003/
2. While installing supply 16digit number where you are being asked. e.g. type 1234567890123456 this will actually make your scanner to work. It will sensor the scanner. You will see the light blue blinking or red light blinking while you are scanning.
3. If you happen to be in Nigeria, you have to get a license before you can use it on jamb website.

I hope this work, if not contact me on 08132829820.

I will love to help. If my solution work for you don't forget to send me mail. I will love to have a testimony.

Cheers

My laptop is not recognising the d link router anymore? Is the status light supposed to flash?


Hello Madolphinlee,

If your computer isn't picking up the router's signal anymore you may need to reset the router.
First check if any other devices see the router (computers, printers, gaming consoles, etc). If only your computer has trouble finding the router then you may want to look into updating the network card drivers.

If no devices are able to properly locate the router, you will need to reset the router using a pin and pressing the reset button on the back of the router found near the power cable.

Thanks,

Pat

The light is not blinking or burning and the external hard disc is not being recognised by my laptop


Connect it to a different computer. If it still is not detected, then there is a hardware problem. Exercise the warranty to get it repaired/replaced.

My 500GB hard drive isn't working anymore


There have been issues with the western digital Mybook on the enclosure itself as the connector usually fails. The actual harddisk, however, is not damaged so you just needed to take that out and mount it to your computer or put it in another USB hard disk enclosure.
