If the hard drive is not working, use your system disc to recover the operating system or use a boot disc to boot in another operating system such as linux or dos and back up the data if the hard disk can be seen and maybe repartition it. You can enter BIOS and see whether BIOS can see that hard disk. Another way is to plug it to another computer and back up the data and do some repair and restore of the operating system.

My dell windows hard drive won't turn on .. It's was working now it won't turn on there's an orange light inside the box we can see but it won't turn on


The hard drive may be failing, or just the OS or hard drive corrupted. You could try this. Pull the hard drive out, and use a USB Hard Drive Adapter to connect the hard drive to a friend's computer, and save all the personal files (documents, pictures, etc.) you can to a folder on the friend's computer or an external hard drive.
Then, you could try to do a Factory Restore on the computer, and if that works, copy your personal files back to your newly restored computer.

External hard drives are portable storage devices you can use to back up files or transfer content from one computer to another quickly and safely.

While external hard drives vary in design and storage capacity, turning them off properly is ideal because it decreases the chances of damaging or corrupting files.

Whether you are using Windows or Mac OS X, you can safely eject and turn off your external hard drive in minutes.

Safely eject your external hard drive before turning it off if you have connected it to your computer.

To do so, click the "Safely remove hardware" icon on the system tray on the taskbar. T
he hardware window launches.


Click your external hard drive's icon in the hardware window and click the "Stop" button. You should see the "This device can now be safely removed from your computer" dialog message.

Press the "Power" button to turn off your external hard drive.
Some external hard drives turn off automatically when you safely eject them.

Right-click your external hard drive's icon on the desktop if you are using a Mac, and then click "Eject."

Alternatively, drag your external hard drive's icon from the desktop to the "Trash" bin.
You should no longer see your hard drive on the desktop.

Press the "Power" button to turn off your external hard drive

I believe my hard drive is locked. When I try to plug in my hard drive to someone else's computer I cannot drag anything into it. Thanks for the help!


For some hard drives, you need to have the correct driver installed on the computer in order to use it. Especially if it is a USB device. If not try a different usb port. The port your using might not be working properly. If that doesn't work... turn off the computer and plug the hard drive in, then turn the computer on. The computer may need to recognize it on boot up.
