Another option you have, would be to purchase an external enclosure for the hard drive and it would then connect via USB cable. These enclosures are usually about $30, and the device works quite well as an external drive as long as you have USB 2.0

This would enable you to access all the information on that drive *and* you could use it as a backup drive for your main hard drive as well.

Good Luck!

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electic extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

hope this helps

Most computer testing facilities will test your current power supply for free. A replacement is very inexpensive to replace. Bestbuy, MicroCenter, small computer shops and buy replacemnent from Amazon.com, newegg.com.. Just make sure you have the correct information for your replacement. The model number on the power supply would be your best bet in most cases. Good luck and have a great day. I buy power supplies as low as $15 dollars Generic

I'm replacing a Bestec ATX1956D power supply and want to know if going to a 300 watt power supply is better. More watts, longer lasting? What's the advantage to more watts? Thanks, Bill


I wouldn't say it's necessarily longer lasting, but more watts are better for computer users that use more devices that pull power from the PC. For example, if you are hooking up several USB peripherals that draw their power over USB, or installing extra drives in the computer that will need power.

Replace your PSU then test all leads that are attached to your hard drive sounds like a faulty lead of some sorts then
try replacing all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your motherboard to hard drive
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty because a computer has to have an end to the circuit any fulty leads will lead to no boot up
good luck

I have a T3626 emachine that I replaced the drive.


check all your ground screws on the motherboard. If that doesn't work try booting it up with out the hard drive. if that doesn't work, pop out the BIOS battery and unplug your computer, let it sit for about a min. and put the battery back in and restart.

Seek replacement power supply unit to suit model ad 6008 ,wd elements external hard drive.


Either Ebay or Western digital are your best options for a replacement power supply.

However I might reccomend a new external enclosure as a more cost effective solution.

Prices are quite low and it may also allow you to put the drive in a better case.
