Hi..

  • do one thing first re-install the driver in different source or locations , don't install again in same location..
  • Then restart it and connect the hdd in another usb port..
  • If it not so, means go to disk management or device manager and check it ,then read carefully wat's the error gives..
  • or connect another PC security system ,then check it..
  • else you need to format the drive because HDD data may be corrupted ,but you want data before you format the HDD means go to the below web site it's very useful to you go to the site and download it it's a recovery data site...

My harddisk , seagates replica single PC unable to detect all of the sudden.... it shows that the window unable to install the driver.. hope to find a solution cause all my backup data inside..


Hi t_c_low2005 ,

First of all , please do not panic,

Nothing would happen to your data unless you deleted it intentionally or your hard disk has suffered a hardware damage.

I would recommend you to check if you have an extension wires for USB connected , if yes then remove them and connect the hard disk directly to the USB slots on your motherboard.

This should work fine...:) Hope it helps.

Hi Good Day,

1) Try this simple steps:

click on the windows logo (START BUTTON) then right click on computer then left click on properties or system properties then click on device manager then under network adopter look for wireless LAN make sure it doesn't have an X mark if so the driver for your wireless card is not installed.

if your computer still under warranty then you bring it back to the store where you purchase it have them replace it with a working computer.

2) try connecting your computer via ETHERNET cable and if your able to connect to the internet that way it mean that there's a hardware / software problem with your wireless adopter installed in your computer.

I have new wd external hdd 250 gb, its not detecting on my desktop.


Is the drive formatted? Did you get an install disk supplied with it? If so try running it.
Check your system BIOS and see if the drive is being detected there. Also you can check the Device Manager in Windows to see if there any issues with the drive.

USB Hard Drive wont open


Make sure you have installed the software drivers first before connecting the USB hard drive. USB is Plug and Play, and when you connect hardware that requires drivers to be installed first, it will not function correctly or not work at all sometimes..
