Black screen at power up


This means a failing Hard drive. This usualy happens due to viruses that corrupts the boot sector of the hard drive and it doesnt boot. It could be a result of improper shutdown, or if the computer was banged agaist the wall or dropped. You did the right thing removing the battery because it also can be a result of static electricity that has built around the computer. To solve this, remove the battery, the hard drive, the power cable and any cd from the cd drive. Press and hold the power button for about 2 to 3minutes. This will drain all the static power out of your computer!

Disconnect the drive and try to boot to the BIOS (usually with F1, F2 or Delete key). If that doesn't work, try removing all cards from the computer (except a video card if the video port is not on the motherboard). If you can boot this way, try inserting back any removed cards to see what hangs it. Do you hear any beeps when the computer is booting (beep codes)?

The hard drive could have been irreparably damaged. The chattering sound is the heads trying to find the beginning of the data sectors and can't. The drive will shut itself off automatically after a predetermined time period.

My Seagate starts to boot up but then goes to a dark blue screen(no words) and you can hear the H.D> working, then the computer beeps once and nothing further happens.


Hi,
the blue screen, is usually a Hardware Or Software ( operating System error ) The Computer beeping Once, States that The Computers Hardware is Fine. I,d try formatting the hard-drive, and reinstalling Your Operating System et,c. I,d assume this is a missing or corrupt windows system file. Or possible hard-drive error. ( virus-Trojan-Worm ) are also suspect.

Plug in my hard drive and nothing happens


Make sure that your usb hard drive is inserted properly into the computer but if nothing happens, go to your bios settings of your computer and be sure that usb function is set to on. Save changes and restart the computer. If you dont know how to do this, first turn on the computer and press the delete key in the keyboard, once you enter the bios screen look for the usb settings and make sure it is set to on. Hope this could help. Thanks
