1. Your hard external hard drive may not be supported by the mother board.
It may be to large for the PC to detect.
check *********** board manual to see if the hard drive is compatible with the PC.
2. Check the USB connection with another USB drive to see if it is detected > if so then the 1TB drive may not be compatible with *********** board.

Spinning wheel death


a new computer? how old is the computer your using and how old is the external hard drive? chances are either the computers pulling every gram of memory out in an attempt to search the hard drive for what you want leaving nothing for you to do other work with. might be upgrade time if its getting on in age.

if the hard drives ageing your going to be better off turning your external drive back into an internal one if you have a tower. you should have room to mount at least 2 drives into the tower. just buy a new hard drive connector and plug it up. the older USB drives work a good bit faster directly connected to the system.

How do I remove the harddrive from the HP Slimline S3100n?


Shut down the power to your HP Slimline computer.

Remove any memory cards or other devices from the desktop.

Disconnect the power cord and peripheral devices from the computer.


Lay the computer flat on your work surface.

Remove the three screws on the rear of the computer cover with a Phillips screwdriver.


Slide the cover toward the back of the computer then lift it off the tower.

Set the cover aside.

Raise the wire latch in front of the hard drive mounting area.


Pull the cables straight out of the connections to disconnect them from the hard drive. Unscrew the retaining screw in the side of the mounting tray with a Phillips screwdriver.


Grab the tab on the hard drive tray and slide it back out of the mounting area. Remove the screws that secure the hard drive to the tray with a Phillips screwdriver.


There are four screws, one on each corner.

Slide the hard drive out of the tray.

How to build a or assemble a computer and troubleshoot?


Building a computer will require: a motherboard, a processor, memory, a video card or motherboard with onboard video, a sound card or motherboard with onboard sound, at least one hard drive, a CD or DVD drive, a case for the computer components, a power supply, fans to cool the computer, an operating system, a monitor, speakers, keyboard, mouse, 2-3 hours to assemble the computer.
You must ensure that all of the components are compatible with one another. After receiving the parts, lay everything out on a large, clean surface. Make sure you are grounded by touching a metal surface; this will prevent the transfer of static electricity to your computer components.
Typically, the steps to install the components are as follows: 1. mount the power supply in the case, 2. mount the motherboard 3. lock the processor in the socket on the motherboard 4. insert the memory sticks into the slots on the motherboard 5. mount the processor fan on the processor 6. insert the video card into the applicable slot on the motherboard 7. insert the hard drive into a hard drive bay in the case, 8. insert the CD drive into a CD drive bay, 9. mount any fans you have to the fan cutouts on the case 10. connect all applicable data cables to the CD and hard drives 11. connect all applicable power cables to the motherboard, video card, processor, hard drive, CD drive, and any other components. 12. connect the front panel USB, power, lights, and reset connectors to the motherboard 13. close the case 14. connect the power, monitor, speakers, keyboard, and mouse to the computer
Because this process is rather involved, I recommend following a guide such as this one: http://www.maximumpc.com/article/how-tos/how-_build_silent_gaming_pc
It details the process, includes pictures, and even provides a list of compatible parts.

It sounds like the drive is not completing the connection. First, try restarting your computer. Then, try another port or cable, or connect to another computer. Another possibilty is a damaged directory, this will be apparent by the drive showing in Disk Utility, but the volume name is greyed out or generic. If so, then DiskWarrior can often repair damaged directories and allow the drive to mount.

Hard drive not mounting


If you still have the files on your pc and just use the drive as a backup, then there is nothing lost yet, and no need to recover, just return to retailer. But if there is any sign of life, check; Right Click My Computer>Properties>Device Manager>Hardware,see if your Drive is in the list, if not, on top right there is an icon for scan for new hardware. See if your PC can find your drive, if not return it.
