It doesn't open anymore. The login page doesn't appear anymore. The computer regonizes it but the sound goes on and off. I've had this hard drive over three years and this is the first times it's not opening.

If you've checked your system for viruses and spyware which can shut down certain drivers and drives, and have found nothing, then chances are your drive has stopped working. Many times the system will find the drive, but the internal mechanism of the drive goes bad and prevents it from working. A lot of factors can cause this:

1. Old - 3 years is a good while
2. Old - depending on how much you use it. The more you use it, the more likely it is to go bad.
3. Has anyone bumped it or dropped it? They're very sensitive to this type of treatment.
5. Try reinstalling the drivers if any came with it.

Good luck.

My computer doesn't recognize my fujifilm finepix 98100 anymore.


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to transfer pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo management program such as Picasa.

I have the SimpleTech Pininfarina 320GB Hard Drive and was working great for a while. Then all of the suddent it just stoppped working. The light doesn't come on anymore on the unit. I've tried...


Hi Angela ,
You' re probably facing a power or usb issue . Consider opening the enclosure ( will be lost , i presume ) and placing the drive in an external usb box ( available in any computer store starting from 20 $ ) to be reconnected to your pc . If this doesn' t help , it means your device is dead . There then still is a small opportunity to recover the lost data by using a recovery software like Recuva ( free ) or TenorShare Recovery ( payable ) .
This should help you solving your issue .
Best regards ,
fanaudi .

Hi. Please try formatting again but from another computer. Also it can be a virus or malware try scanning it with antimalwarebytes and and your antivirus software i recommend avast free version. If you can't open it you might have erased the drivers needed to access the gadget try re installing them you can download them from the manufacturer official page or sometimes they come with a cd when you purchased the HDD. Hope it helps

My 1 tb wont work on my computer anymore i was using it one day and then it just goes off and shows up in my computer to eject but wont open or anything


Please check your USB ports and make sure that there is no shorting or over current.Usually external Hard drives gets fused under the above circumstances.Please check on other USB ports or another PC.If it doesn't responds please contact your nearest service center and ask them for a data recovery.It won't come under the warranty claim if the damage is severe.

Resumin windows... for troubleshooting and advanced startup options for windows.. Press F8. I've tried but it did not do anything. It appears as the screen is frozen.


Either you did not shutdown the computer properly or the hard drive failed. When you press F8, it should give you an option to boot to "Safe Mode". Boot to "Safe Mode" and it should load up to the account login page and your desktop:

- If it does load, attempt a system restore by going to Start --> All Programs --> Accessories --> System Tools --> System Restore, then select a previous time/date to go back to.

- If it doesn't load, then the hard drive has very likely crashed, which would mean you will need to replace the hard drive.

- One more thing you can try is performing a factory recovery. The downside to this is that you need an external CD/DVD-ROM drive and the Operating System discs. This will allow you to restore the computer to factory settings, so it will erase everything you have on the hard drive and reload a clean OS and appear just like the first day you purchased it. This will rule out any software issues.

Macbook screen goes black after I log in.


Since the screen does turn on at the login page, I would say that it doesn't seem as though anything is physically wrong with your computer. It sounds to me like it's a software issue. Either get someone to try and reinstall your video drivers or to back-up your documents, files, etc., format the hard drive, and reinstall a fresh copy of Mac OS.
