You should be able to open up your external hard drive enclosure, find the right size fan, and order another one from almost any online store for cheap. You may even be able to go to some computer store nearby you and you may be able to get one there.

For internal hard-drive:
There's a possibility that the hard drive is cooked. Try running a hard-drive self test by accessing the BIOS screen of your laptop. If the test fails, the your hard-drive is already broken.
Try re-seating your hard-drive. Take it out then put it back in again. If it doesn't work, the hard-drive is broken. If you have a similar drive available, try replacing the drive that displays the error. If the extra drive works without any problems, the old drive is broken.
Consult a local technician. They should be able to assist you in resolving problems like this. They might also be able to help you retrieve important data from the broken drive.
You can also call your computer's manufacturer for troubleshooting or replacements.
For external drives.
Fixes:
1. Plug the hard-drive into another port. 2. Plug the hard-drive to another computer. If you get the same error, the drive is no longer usable.

I cannot access my Maxtor external hard drive. My laptop will not start if the hard drive is attached. If I attach my hard drive after booting up my laptop the laptop freezes.


Your Maxtor HDD is Broken, or Jammed. thats why these hanging things happen. send it to the service center if you have any warrenty. i think they will fix this. if no warrenty then open the HDD casing and remove the HDD and put it in new casing and try backing up Date. best of luck...

Hello,


If you don't want to open the case, you can use sprayer, find it in the market, contact cleaner (spray).
Spray the cleaner right into the fan rotor, and to remove the dust, use the paint brush or vacuum cleaner.

Hope it's work!!

The fan stopped working, it tipped over...


The fan is probably broken - you can use the drive without a fan - keep an eye on the drive temperature with something like SpeedFan (free). If the drive temp goes above 45C unplug it for a while. If after a while the drive temp stays below this level then it will be OK. If it keeps going over then consider getting the drive repaired

Potential overheating


You can buy a fan with a thermal bublb on it that will mount on the drice and will kep it cool, you could have a bad thermal bublb on the drive and it's still under warrenty so I would call the company to see if they would replace it or send you aa new fan with bublb sensor.
