Has the drive been used previously? Possibly on a Mac or Linux machine? If so then Windows may be having a problem recognizing the file system the drive is set up with. Try connecting the drive to the PC, turning off your PC and then turning it on while tapping the Del key. This should bring you to the BIOS where you can have a look around (mostly in the Boot menu) to see if the BIOS can recognize the drive. If the BIOS can see it but Windows can't, it's most likely a problem with the file system. Bring the drive to any Windows or Linux based machine (or make your own Ubuntu Live CD and do it yourself) and reformat the drive to either FAT32 or NTFS (NTFS being the best choice). Windows should have no problem picking up the drive then.

If the BIOS doesn't recognize the drive, bring the drive to another computer and test there. It may be that the power is going to the drive but either not enough to start the hard drive spinning, or that the drive itself has failed. Either way, it's pretty much dead.

Don't forget that most external hard drives and the likes come with pretty long warranties (lifetime in some cases) and you should always contact the manufacturer to find out if it can be replaced or repaired free of charge.

Webcam doesnt work


Restart the computer and see if the blue light comes back on by itself. If you are still having problems visit the Toshiba support site for your country (or region). Download the webcam application compatible with your version of Windows (32 bits, 64 bits) and reinstall the application. Test it using the Start>Toshiba>Utilities>Webcam Application, or the Face recognition software. You close the running application by clicking the x at the top right corner of the application window

The fan keeps running and the blue light around the power button doesnt turn on


There might be something wrong with the connection between the light to your main board. You can open the chase and see whether there are broken wiring between the front pane of your machine and some ports on your main board.

My zen won't turn on. only the blue light flashes when its plugged in. the screen doesnt turn on. what does this mean thanks


Well you can try this if you still got the zen, press the reste button, dont hold just press it then hold down the power button and it will start up but mine just kept on going black fter a while so i had to put it into recovery mode by doing the following.
Hold down play untill the end
Press the reset button
Hold down the power button
Makes sure you releas the play button last
after that do Reload Firmware i think
then it will delete the firmware make sure you have this downloaded on your computer
http://support.creative.com/downloads/download.aspx?nDownloadId=10889
its the newest firmware
when you downloaded this plug in your zen into the computer and it should turn on your zen and then say Firmware problem and if it doesnt just put it into recovery mode then plug it in.
Then make sure all application are turned off like Mozzila or the Internet Explorer, then just double click on the firmware and it should fix

Harddrive issues.


I would suggest 2 things.
Open the PC up and reseat the RAM stick/s.
Also reseat the graphics card if applicable.
If the monitor still doesnt get sync take out the pci cards and see if it will POST.
If so plug your PCI cards back in one at a time to diagnose which is the faulty one.
Also it could be your graphics card, take it out and use the O/B graphics see if the monitor will get sync off the O/B.
If this doesnt help please supply more information.
