Dell e5520 freezing


Possibilities:
1. Dying power-supply is creating unstable voltages
2. Dying capacitors on motherboard are unable to stabilize voltages
3. bad RAM (compare to writing in pen on greasy paper -- nothing is realiably being recorded)
4. bad spots on disk-drive (computer is spending too much time trying to write to those "bad" spots)
5. other "dying" issues with the motherboard


Try:
1. different power supply
2. if you have more than one stick of RAM, remove one and test-drive. Repeat with the other stick(s).
3. Try different RAM.
4. Force CHKDSK ("Check Disk") utility to scan *all* of the disk-drive.
5 Inspect the motherboard for bulging/leaking capacitors.
6. Replace the motherboard.
7. Replace the whole computer.

Iomega LPHD-UP 500GB power issue?


The fault sounds like a power supply problem. The USB port on your computer supplies up to a max. 500MA and this may not be sufficient for the external hard drive to work properly.
I suggest you get a new AC power adapter for this drive.

Hello,
your drive has failed at either the power supply level or internal hard drive level.
First, please verify your power supply. When plugged into the power outlet, it should be silent. A defective power supply will hiss or have a high pitch noise to it. If it is defective, replace it and check if the issue is resolved.
If the power supply is silent, one or both of the internal hard drive is failing. If no data is needed, you can either replace the defective one which you will have to isolate by connecting the internal hard drives to a computer or with another enclosure and running a block scan software like hdTune which is free to download. The other option would be to scavenge the healthy drive and use it in another enclosure or inside the computer directly.
If you need the data and the problem was not the power supply, you will need to contact a data recovery center.
Regards,

Is the drive's warrany still valid?

The external storage device has several major components:
* USB cable
* external power-supply
* disk-drive inside the enclosure
* USB-to-disk-drive adapter inside the enclosure.
Try a different USB cable.
Try a different USB port on your computer.
Try a USB port on a different computer.
Take a multi-meter, and measure the output voltage/amperage of the power-supply,
and compare with the specifications on the label of the power-supply.
Open the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive, and attach it as a "slave" drive in a desktop computer, to see if bypassing the USB-to-disk-drive adapter bypasses the problem.
Look at the label on the disk-drive, for manufacturer, product-number, serial-number, and manufacture date. Access the manufacturer's web-site, and use "check warranty status" to see if the warranty still is valid. If so, the drive can be replaced, at minimal cost to you.
Buy a new, compatible, disk-drive, and install it in the enclosure, to "revive" your external storage device.
Search online for a professional "data recovery service". For a significant fee, they can repair your disk-drive, just long-enough to copy your files to a new disk-drive. Check Seagate's web-site; they offer a "no-charge-if-we-cannot-recover-your-files" service.

I have lost the external power supply for my 1TB laCie (300797U). I have another power supply that has physically the right connector, but I'm not sure if the voltages are right. The supply I have is a...


The voltages are right because hard drives use 12volts for the motor drive and 5volts for the digital logic circuits.
The only thing I don't know is the correct voltages for the various pins, there is a possibility it may not suit the LaCie.
This maybe a standard configuration for external USB hard drives, you need to check with LaCie.

Short Cicuit on my Buffalo external hard disk...Help!!!!!!!!!


First of all Hi!

This Fixya will help you solve this problem. First of all your hard drive should be still ok but you will require to open the hard drive enclosure and replace the power supply (due to the wrong voltage tapping). Please feel free to follow these fixya's not only to recover your photos but get back a working hard drive!

Solution 1: Check fuses
1. Disconnect faulty enclosure from any mains supply
2. If power supply is INTERNAL you will have to OPEN the enclosure but BEFORE you do that WITH THE hard drive UNPLUGGED TURN ON the power switch to discharge the hard drive's internal power supply
2. Open the enclosure and check for any fuses on the inside. There should be one located close to the power swtich from inside. Change it with one of a similar rating because most probably this is the culprit.
3. Try and power up the drive THIS TIME WITH the CORRECT voltage tapping
4. If the power supply is EXTERNAL you do not need to open the enclosure, just change the power supply with a similar one and you should be up and running again.

Solution 2: But the fuse is ok but there is bbq smell when i opened the enclosure!
1. Ok this means that you will need to get hold of the internal hard drive.
2. If you have another computer check if the hard drive is still ok! Here is how:
- Turn off the computer
- Open case , #
- Hook it up to the Internal IDE cable and the internal power connector
- Turn on the computer.
- You should have this detected in my computer as a new hard drive and you
should be able to see all the data in it
2. But probably you still want this as external dont you? Ok buy another enclosure from a computer shop (this time you will just need an empty one)
3. Plug the hard drive in new enclosure. If you're not experienced enough just give it to them to hoook it up for you and FINALLY you should have the reincarnated buffalo hard drive functional again.

Hope this fixya was of help :)

Best Regards
ALx

The clicking sound on the hard drive normally means that the hard drive is on it's way out, but can also be in some cases the power supply. The best way to test this is check the voltage of the power supply with a multi meter. If the voltage is good, then remove the hard drive from the casing and plug it into the PC, depending on the connection IDE or SATA you might need a connector and see if it works normally.

But my guess is that the hard drive is crashing....
