Hi there if you are having some problems with laptop starting up then i would look at the power cord that charges your battery and make shure your battery is locked in the slot as well . what type of laptop you have there ? is the power cord adapter still working ? it may not be charging your battery sometimes this will happen before you take laptop to surgury make shure that the power adapter cord is still charging battery ok to do this plug in power adapter and using a multi meter check to see the voltage that is comming from adapter plug ok on the adapter it will tell you the input voltage and the output voltage that you should be reading on your dc multimeter ok try that first ill wait on a fixya soon bye for now

PC not detecting HD


Hi,
HDD not Detecting only if you HDD data cable damage, HDD power Cable damage, HDD port damage, or HDD bad sector. But normally you change HDD data or power cable or mother board port. And i suggest mother board all connection disconnect and only HDD connect and open bios and search your HDD detected.

Thanks..

I have two hard drives.. WD 320 gigs & Seagate 250 gigs. Both drives are not booting. No sounds, nothing. I tried the freezer technique but not worth it. There's no clicking sound. I think the disc inside...


looking inside was a big error, that floods the internals with dust
the heads will now crash. but its dead anyway,, so no foul.
use your ears, not looking inside. gee. whirrrrrrr, try a good drive and listen, train those ears.....!!!
if it dont spin, or you can not feel the gyro effect (try that on good drive)
then the drive is bad. (or no power, +5v and +12v are mandatory)
you only said Seatage, they make vast types of drives, so I really dont know what you have, not really.

the drive (SATA/PATA but NOT SCSI or SAS) must spin up
with power, if not
1:bad power,
2; bad drive.
end of story.

ever held a gyro, like in boy scouts or? or NAVY.
it fights you when you ,try to change directions, of the drive case.
the gyro effect. all HDD do this., spinning at full speed.

is that enough help, if confused read an A+ book, all this is covered in one book.

if not pata/sata drives, the controller or drive must be commanded
to spin up. (servers use these drives)

Can't start HD, I can hear only biping sound


a biping sound is usually indicative of either a dead drive, or not enough power on the USB bus (for unpowered external drives).
If the drive will take an external power supply, but is not connected to one, try connecting a power supply to it.
If the drive is out of warranty, try removing it from the external enclosure and hook it up internally to the PC. Sometimes the enclosure interface fails. If the drive makes the same noise inside the PC, it's likely dead.

Replaced a crashing hard drive that worked a day, now it doesn't


Power supply blocks do weird things. If you can beg borrow or... a power block for your computer (500 watt, eh?), try that before you upend the computer. A power block has fixed MANY issues for me.
Is it possible to test the hard drive on a friend's computer? The store that sold the hard drive can likely test it for you, perhaps for nothing.

It sounds like you may be having a problem with the hard drive interface on the mother board. Try using the second interface. It is very unusual for a modern computer to be unable to detect a hard drive. You HAVE tried a new EIDE cable, right? 80 pin? Place the drive selector in the neutral position (no selection).

Lacie ED mini v2 won't start up.


I had the same problem twice, but it was the power adapters each time that were causing the problem. It wasn't the unit itself. Lacie replaced the power adapters and it worked fine.

It sounds like your hard drive is dead. If you have tried it on a different computer and it did the same thing then your drive isn't booting up and is probably bad.

Mistakenly plugged maxtor one touch 2 into wrong power adapter


Well Most Likely The Circuit Board Burnet Out Since Its 12V And When Plugged Into A 19V Supply It Will Burn Out Instantly Because It Over Charges The Circuits. So Its Not Possible To Repair Such Damage But You Can Take Out The Hard Drive And Plug IT Into A Desktop Computer And Use It At Home Or As An Online Hard Drive To Store Files

LaCie 250GB Ethernet Disk Mini (300938U) Won't Power Up


Hi
External drives of this type are usually internal drives with case power supply etc. You should be able to open the box remove hard drive connect as a 2nd hard drive to PC either sata or ide depending on drive PC should recognise drive at boot up then you can access files and back up to CD, DVD, hard disk. If you are not comfortable doing this usually local PC repair shop will do for small charge. Assuming of course that the hard drive itself is not dead, just the power supply for the external case.
Hope this helps

drives dead. Head crash problem.
The read head, has clattered the disk(s)
