2.5'' Mobile HDD not beingread at all

Hello. I'm desperate. I just put some gigas of video on this removable HD , and now no computer can read it. They say USB Ide found and then reading error . No icons shown. Maybe I havn't deactived the right USB hub before unplugging, but it's strange that for this I have to throw away an expensive device (my father's, by the way)
If more info are needed ask me

THANK YOU

A,
I have had many of the same issue with portable USB hard drives, what the industry does not tell you is that they get hot in those cases, and there is not active cooling (i.e.: a fan). Usually, that is not a problem for the hard drive itself, however, it is for the USB to hard drive bridge electronics. This is good for you, as, more than likely, the drive is good and the USB bridge, which is separate, has failed.

You will need to carefully take apart the external USB case and connect to your computer either with a new USB case you can get at a good computer store or online store, or if you are technically more inclined, you can attach to a IDE port of you desktop PC witha 2.5" to 3.5" disk drive adapter.

If you need more specifics, let me know and supply the make and model of your USB drive.

-J.

I have G41M COMBO(GIGA-BYTE) mother bord with 1G Integreted Graphic Card (Intel), 2G RAM DDR3. Problem when running games Computer becomes to slow


The onboard video chip is very weak and it can't handle the amount of data required by a game. There's only thing you can do - install a decent video card.

Notebook cant see my 30 giga hdd


i assume the armada is a compaq product? if so, you may want to read your installation documentation- hdd may have jumpers, or spacers that need to be re-located! if it's not a compaq 'compliant' product, then good luck! compaq hardware is very 'proprietary'! meaning, if our laptop don't like it, then it don't work!! i've tried compaq ram on a toshiba- slotted right in! no prob. 'til i booted! didn't like it! seems very unfriendly to me! if your hdd 'kit' is supposedly compatible with your laptop, then, as i stated- check dox for jumper, or spacer settings. remove hdd and check for bent pins!! if there are any, very, very carefully- using fine tweezers- straighten them until they socket properly!
break one of and you're s.o.l.!
you may have a friend with the proper tools, and a steady hand who could assist, it there's a bent pin!
the hdd can appear to seat properly, but still have a bent pin. check any jumper/spacer settings first! also compatibility with your armada!
good luck!

PS3 pwr issues


I had this same problem, I removed the HD from the ps3 and put it in my notebook (you can do it in any other computer), with the ps3 HD in my notebook I booted up from a bootable cd downloaded from the SeaGate web site (a diagnostic tool). The tool found and fixed a problem in the ps3 HD, after that I put it back in the ps3 and it worked. =)
Hope it helps.

P4VM890 + new videocard! No boot up!


welcome to fixya

Well i never did it that way but ok

your going to have to reboot the computer with the reboot disk ,,

once thats done turn off computer and install the video card and then also insert the drivers disk that came with the video card
this should work has for me and i have done 100s of video cards
Although if you bought a good video card and still have a 400w power supply your going to run into trouble make sure you have a 500w power suplpy or better to run a good video card ,,,,,

i hope this helps you out have a good day:)
