Hi. If you have Windows Xp. if you have Installation disk. load the disk. But if you not have, just connect and it's gonna be detected for Windows, If need drivers,windows will let you know, you need to go online, to get them.

If you have Windows Vista. just connect, and gonna install itself.
And you will see the message your hardware is installed and ready to work.

If you have a USB or Firewire cable you can just plug it into the USB port or firewire port in your computer and plug the power cord in if you have one and it should start recognizing it.

Verbatim 1tb external hard drive turning on


Make sure the appropriate drivers are up to date:
http://www.verbatim.com/index/support.php?lang_id=1&cat=9&section=
Try different ports on your machine, reboot your machine, try connecting it to a different computer if possible.

Type in diskmgmt.msc into the search bar, and see if the drive shows up here at all. If it shows up, but doesn't have a drive letter right click and use the assign drive letter option.
Contact verbatim for a replacement cable.

I need to know what hardrives are compatible with my computer


You can buy any HDD/SSD as long as it has some sort of SATA connection. The differences between SATA, SATAII, SATAIII are mainly speeds. But all will be recognized by your machine.

When I turn the hard drive on it beeps 6 times intermittently, it goes 1beep slight pause 3beeps slight pause 2beeps, and doesn't boot up as normal. Numbers 3 and 4 on the hard drive are lighting. The...


Has anything changed since it was working last? check that first
Next -- the Beep codes indicate a hardware problem --the PC was unable to POST(Power On Self Test-)-but DELL's beep codes closest to what you described is either 1-2-video card not detected or 1-3-1-1 which is Memory (RAM) error adn the PHEONIX beep code of 1-3-2 is Memory error also-- so be sure all cards and chips are seated properly--I dont think its the hardrive --a PC can still boot and POST without a hardrive.

Compaq Presario S3040SE PC Desktop was working fine. when i turned it on next day screen says operating system not found. restart. now monitor wont kick on and hard drive light doesnt come on. only power...


Normaly when you get the error that the operating system cant be found, it is a indication that the hardrive has either gone bad, or somehow some of the system files got deleted. I would say though since the hard drive light wont come on it could be the hardrive has shut down completely. But you still should see the company image of your computer when you start it up, (the bios screen)

A bad hardrive would be my first guess, 2nd problem if its not your harddrive would be a new power supply.

I would like diagram on hooking hard drive to hard drive.


If you are trying to put another hardrive into your existing pc I could explain but you if would like something more visual then there is a tutorial here

its simple really since the computer auto detects the new hardrive. the hardest part are the jumpers on the back of the hardrive. You see one hardrive has to be set to Master and the other has to be set to slave. the hardrives can connect to the IDE cable (the big flat cable inside your pc) in any order but they cannot be both set to master. The jumpers are easy to switch and the hardrive itself will have a diagram right next to the jumpers to show you how to move the jumpers to make the selection.

its a great idea to have two drives in your pc in case something happens to the first, but i always recommend a hard backup (cd/dvd).

I have Norton antivirus on me PC .My hardrive crashed and need a new one .It was purchased new Feb'08 and joined Norton April'08 (when trial period expired). Can I transfer my subscription to new hardrive?...


Sure, you are entitled to 12 months usage, no matter if you change computer or disk.

All you need is the installation key provided from Norton and the link to Norton download, to download and install onto the new hard drive.
Usually Norton send this detail to email.
If you have lost this information contact Symantech and provide details used for purchase, they will give you instructions on what to do to validate and use the remaining time for your license.

Here is Symantech contact for UK only

Proceeding from here you can find contact for other countries

DVD hardrive problem


Do you check the setting of your hard drive? It seems that you have already another hard drive (HD) install which is working already were your operating system install. Try to put the 2nd HD setting in slave position. Follow instruction that is written at the back of HD. Your computer should read the 2nd HD as slave and will see it as drive: F or G and so on.
