Very slow to boot


Most of the time, PC start running slow by lots of reasons. Corrupt registry, unnecessary applications, too many start-up items as well as virus infection would be the major reasons contributing to this problem. Many PC users simply utilize PC yet never consider how to maintain and optimize PC performance. I would suggest you to download any reliable program to fix registry, to manage unnecessary applications & start-up items like am using Reginout for it.

Every time i plug my 1TB western digital mybook in my computer freezes and when i shut it down it wont restart until i unplug it from the computer i have no idea what it could be please help


That needs a motherboard drivers upgrade.

What happens is that the BIOS starts detecting and checking booting devices.

Earlier motherboards are not able to detect external hard drives and boot from them.

So the solution to this is to turn off the computer and then disconnect the cable.

Remove safely the HD and then restart.

God Bless You!

External Harddrive locks up Windows Vista Home Basic on start up


I would suggest two things.
First, plug in the 1TB drive when it won't cause problems, and go to Disk Management under Administrative Tools (for example right-click the My Computer icon and select Manage, then drill down to Disk Management). Check your 1TB disk's drive letter there, and perhaps change it to some letter further down the alphabet, like "T" for example.
Then run a full check on the drive - right-click the 1TB drive and select Properties, go to Tools tab and run "check for errors", selecting the option to repair system errors.
After that's finished, plug in the 500GB drive and run a full check on it as well, just to make sure.
Now try booting up with both disks plugged in - the problem should be gone.
If it's not, then it may mean, that your BIOS is trying to open this 1TB drive to make an option to boot from it possible, and it has troubles because of it's size; some older BIOSes can't cope with disks of that size. Should this be the case, you can go into BIOS Setup and disable booting from other devices that the primary internal hard disk.

Hard disk beeps at startup


Hi,

It can most likely be fixed, the only question is how much effort.

If' you're luck either the AC adapter or the circuit board in the Casing is dead. If you stop in at your local computer shop(assuming you don't have the tools at home) you can test the AC adapter with a multimeter. If it tests normal, then try moving the HDD into a new enclosure and test it.

If neither of the first two suggestions works then the issue lies in the circuitry of the actual hard drive. At this point you will need the help of a pro, if this is the case, comment back here with your country/state/city and I will recommend a pro in the region.

Wd800jd sata hard drive not recognized in bios on boot up


Hi, A couple of ideas: 1. There are 3 versions of this motherboard: Dragon Plus, V1.0 & V2.0, perhaps your BIOS needs an update to be able to recognize the new HD. This of course would require flashing; 2. There are two variations of a WD SATA hard drive: Serial ATA amd Serial ATA II; 3. Re Jumper settings: the eight-pin jumper block is only used to enable power management on the drive. There are no master/slave settings since there is only one drive per cable; 4. If you are fresh installing Windows on it, you need to press F6 when asked by the Windows Installer and follow on-screen instructions. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information.
