First test your PSU or then test all leads that are attached to your hard drive sounds like a faulty lead of some sorts then
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

I have a Western Digital Passport Essential 320GB to back up my PC. Now, I don't know why, the file wdsmartware.exe doesn't run and appears the message "WDDM service no running". Can you help me...


You must restart the WDDM Service. To do this you must be logged in as an administrator:

1. Press the Win Key (between left "ctrl" and "alt) + "R". That will open the Run Dialogue Box.

2. Type "services.msc"

3. Scroll down to WDDM

4. Right click ----> Properties

5. Verify startup type is "Automatic"

6. Click "Start" ---> "Apply ----> "OK"

WDDM service not running. It's only happening to my new computer, my old one opens the 1 Tb hard drive just fine. What gives?


Im guessing since you didnt clarify that your NEW computer is running Windows 7 and the old one is running XP or an early version of Vista. The WDDM service software is picky with windows 7. You should download DirectX 11 and update the wddm drivers to 1.1 from the microsoft website.
