Question about Western Digital 500GB My Book World Edition 500 GB Hard Drive
When it starts the computer screen get blurred unable to see stuff clearly.
My amigo , your monitor is most likely gettin old , Operating systems and video cards do not blur monitors unless you ordered them to do so , I'm a fully qualified monitor technition this stuff happens all the time , basicaly it's the focus block of the monitor , if it's not serious you're lookin at a few bucks to have it worked on , if more serious expect to pay more ,
and if you are me , you put on your ground protection and you open that monitor up and adjust the focus block on the flyback transformer , as CRTs age a bit the focus block needs adjustment , I can also tell you that if you plan on doing it , READ any and all documentation on how to adjust a focus block before you do it , and wear ground protection ( or if you're not scared to die like me , just use your plastic screw driver on the focus block and adjust the little dumpling. it's not rocket science in this particular situation just a focus block adjustment , and if that fails , it's time to chunk it , because more than likely it's about to totaly fail.. and easyer to buy a new one..
focus fuzzyness is a sign of bad things ahead ( 50% of the time. )
Again , if a simple focus block adjustment doesn't do the trick , I'd just chunk it and get another one
unless you're a hardware monkey like me who went to electronics school ...
And above all wear ground protection ...
I'm not responsible for accidental injury or death from following my advice on this , just trying to save your monitor.
as for a solve on this , it's a matter of your willingness to adjust the focus block which is on the flyback transformer , scary and dangerous not recommended for those who haven't made their peace with Elohim and are clumbsy lol
I hope this still gets counted as a solve

If this is western digital world edition
Download the computer software for your Western Digital My Book World Edition if you don't have it installed on your computer.
The software can be downloaded on the Western Digital website.
Install the software to your computer.
Go to the "Start" menu.
Click "All Programs," the "Western Digital" folder and then "My Book World Edition Software" to launch the software.
Switch to the "System" tab. Click either the "Restore Configuration" or "Full Restore" button on the tab, depending on your My Book World Edition drive.
Click the "Browse" button, select the factory settings default restoration point, and then "General Restore" to return the unit to factory settings, or click "Full Restore" and then "Restore Factory Default," again depending on your specific My Book World Edition device.
The unit powers off, all data is erased from the hard drive and the My Book is returned to factory settings.
Hope this helps
