When I power up my Maxtor storage drive, the yellow light remains on (no green light). I cannot turn it off by holding the power button down. It is also making a high frequency noise.

I had a similar problem with my pc( OS=XP SP2) with the same external drive model. I was able to solve it by downloading and installing WindowsXP-KB908673-x86-ENU Hotfix Package from Microsoft Corporation. I hope it works for you.

SOURCE: Maxtor 3200 power indicator lights but computer won't recognize

I had the same issue. My PC would not recognize the external Maxtor 3200 hard drive, but the light was on, although feintly. Here is what I did. I went out and bought another Western Digital 500 GB USB hard drive, knowing that it probably had the same power supply. Got home and plugged the power supply into the Maxtor 3200 and immediately my Windows XP immediately recognized it and the drive was perfect. I checked with Radio Shack before coming home and they have the power supply needed there, with multiple choices on the size of the power input. The problem was the power supply cord. Now I have the Maxtor with all my media files on it and another that I will transfer files to as a backup

Solution:
First, disconnect the power cable from the back of the external hard drive:
If the power supply LED continues to blink:

  1. Connect the power supply to a different outlet (or instead of connecting to a power strip, connect directly to an outlet in the wall).

  2. If the power supply continues to blink after changing outlets, this indicates that the power supply is defective and needs to be replaced.

  3. If the power supply stays solid, then reconnect to the external hard drive and see if the drive spins.

SOURCE: maxtor external hard drive fell on floor (maybe a

yeakis..!!..
itz probably not normal anymore..it do happen while boot up or when hdd gets power..hdd consists of one or more solid n heavy platter(s) like gramophone media/disk in miniature, which is spinning at more than 7200+ rpm just on a single pivot which is thick just around a dot pen's nib..there is one lens each on both side of the platter of abt 1mm probably..and the whole assembly do function somewhat alike gramophone....
nw u cn understand how highly balanced they r..due to time, illegal shut down, moving/shacking/thud/shock to the hdd while in activity, may cause damage to it..and the first n common symptom is either no activity or 'ticking' noise (like 'tuk tuk' or 'kirr kirr')..!!
do claim warranty..report as hdd dead..don't tell itz physically damaged..
try contacting ur system admin/vendor without delay....

My Dell Inspiron B130 won't turn on. The battery light blinks yellow twice then green, but that is the only thing happening.


Hi,
Take the battery off completely and drain the flea power from the laptop by holding down the power button while the battery is off. Hold down the power button for about 15-20 seconds to ensure no power remains on the laptop. Check if your battery has a drain button too. Drain the battery and place it back on the laptop.
Charge it for about 30 minutes before you turn it on. See if it works.
Post here if you need further help.
