An external storage-device has four major components:

* the USB cable

* the power-adapter

* the disk-drive inside the enclosure

* the USB-to-disk-drive adapter inside the enclosure.

One of these components has failed.

Try a different USB cable.

Try connecting to a different USB port on your computer.

Try connecting to a USB port on a different computer.

Take a "multi-meter" and measure both the voltage and amperage output from the AC adapter, and compare with the specifications on the label on the adapter.

Open the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive, and then connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in a desktop computer, to see if it works at all.

Purchase a new, compatible, disk-drive, and install it in the enclosure, to "revive" your external storage device.

Get the part-number and serial-number from the label on your disk-drive, and access the manufacturer's web-site, and use "check warranty status", to see if they will replace the device, at minimal cost to you.

My desktop keeps disappearing


Remove unnecessary programs installed on your computer. This will help you save space and then more room for special processes for system performance.

Next, I advise you to run a full computer scan. This will help eliminate viruses or spywares on your PC and I think which is also the culprit to your Desktop suddenly dissapearing. Viruses are nasty and they will do everything to bug your computer down.

Printer disappears !

hi there are 2 types of wireless installation 1 is infrastructure and the other one is Adhoc in Infrastructure the computer and the printer are connected through a router this is a permanent sort of connection and remains even if the computer is shut down
but the Adhoc connection is a short duration connection in which the computer and the printer are directly connected and the connection is lost as soon as the printer or the computer is turned off
so its always recommended to connect teh printer using the infrastructure mode so that you do not face any problem
