This issue is related to the hard drive, Have you dropped the hard drive at any time recently? If so then you may have lost your data. Since the hard drive is makeing a beeping noise then the head has died meaning the hard drive is dead hope this helps.

Disconnect all other usb devices and plug it int again to see if works. If it does then the computer/laptop is not giving it enough power through the usb port

The power light keeps flashing and it is not being detected on my PC


Try hooking the drive directly to your pc and not with the usb connection you are currently using. Your usb case electronics could have gone south. If still no go, it is possible that drive is toast, especially if it is not being recognized by your pc.

Hard drives are notorious for dying when you least expect them and all critical material should always be in more than one place for obvious reasons.

Dell Vostro 1000 Bios - Flash Failure


I attempted to update the BIOS on my Vostro 1000 to cure the bad battery message. My original BIOS was 2.6.1 and I intended to update to 2.6.3.

I could not flash under Windows 7 so I installed XP but the flash failed half way through.and the computer did not power up again. All that happened after I pressed the power switch was the light came on and the CD drive shuffled a couple of times. No screen illumination.

Various posts were scanned but no solution found until my buddie came up with the following sequence.

Get the file posted in this link on a computer running XP

To Create a Crisis Recovery USB you must use a Win XP system
Note: Running XP through compatibility more in Win 7 will not work


1. Insert Blank USB Drive

2. Open "CRISDISK" folder

3. Open "WINCRIS" application

4. It should detect the USB Drive

5. Click "Start" Button WINCRIS should create the USB recovery drive

6. For Crisis recover, be sure to Power drain system.
. A. Remove Battery
. B Depress power button for 10-15 sec.

7. Insert USB drive into USB port of the Dell.

8. Hold END button while plugging in power cord in system

9. Continue to hold END and depress and release the system power button.

10. Continue holding END until USB drive begins to flash and a single beep is heard.

11. System may remain blank as it enters recovery mode - Anoying Beeping will be heard - Beeping will stop and FANS will function Another series of Beeps will be heard

12. System should complete recovery in 5-10 min. If system has not powered down in 15 min, power down by pressing the power button

This worked for me and as a bonus I do not have the battery error message anymore.

B. Turn on computer and let boot up, w/o hard drive power on
C. Make sure ext drive is plugged into usb port

My seagate 250 GB hard disk is not being detected, no lights, pls help me!!


First, try plugging it in to another usb slot.

If it still does not work, plug in another device to the same usb slot. If it does not work also, there is a problem with your usb slot, and you can buy an extra usb slot.

or, if the other device works, try unplugging and taking out all the power supply for your desktop/laptop. Then, after 20 minutes, plug them back in and then plug in your hard drive, then turn on your computer.

Hope this helps, leave a comment on what happened ^_^

Imation Swivel Flash Drive Cant detect


is it several times that youve used your flash driver at your office? and which side of the usb port did you plug it? coz when it is your first time to use your flash drive at your office and your plugging it at the front side of the PC. well there might be something wrong with connection and may cause damage to the board of the flash drive. if it your using it several times, well try to check at your PC, then do the following specs:

my computer (right click and select manage)
and under manage window ( select disk management )
try to see if your flash drive registered (you can see the drives of your PC) and see if theres a volume (either raw/ or theres a partition on it).

if not, well the board of your flash drive might be damaged, mostly these were caused by the power of the system, fluctuation is one of them, then improper plugging of the flashdrive.
