    I have the same problem with no connection and the red/blue blinking light. I noticed the solution as a dead AC Adapter but I can not find one anywhere. I am guessing acomdata is no longer in business as their website will not pull up and their phone # is disconnected. Any help on locating a new AC adapter for this hard drive? It is a Dura Micro Model: DM5127. Thanks!

I have found that this means the ac adapter is dead. I lost one to lightning, was afraid that I had lost 130 Gb of photos, had an extra adapter and everything was fine. The four pin adapter is available through Acomdata but only if you call. Their online tech support is non existent, apparently. They sell them for $22 as opposed to other sources that want anywhere from $99 to $135

Try checking your power cord adapter.
I found the same problem was with the cord.
Luckily, I had another Acomdata HD cord to check the problem.

Firefox crase every 15 minuts plz fix 4 us


Mozilla's Firefox Internet browser is one of the most popular browsers in the world, second only to Microsoft's Internet Explorer.

As of April 2011, Firefox held a 21.63 percent share of the worldwide browser market. Unfortunately, problems with plug-ins, websites and general operating system incompatibility occasionally cause Firefox to become unstable and crash.

To prevent these crashes from occurring again, the cause of the crash needs to be identified so an effective fix can be implemented.

Take note of the action or circumstance that lead to the crash.
Pay particular attention to the timing of the crash and whether it occurred while launching Firefox, when trying to view a specific website, when attempting to download a file or at a seemingly random time.


Repeat the action that caused the crash to see whether it causes Firefox to crash again. Some crashes are caused by memory problems or other external factors and may be a one-time occurrence.

Repeating the action determines whether the crash was caused by errors within Firefox or if there were other factors involved.

Hold the "Shift" key down on your keyboard and relaunch Firefox.
This will launch the application in "Safe Mode," disabling all plug-ins and themes.

Repeat the action that caused the crash; if the problem was caused by a plug-in or theme then the crash will not occur this time.

Open a new Firefox tab and type "about:crashes" without the quotation marks into the navigation bar.
Press "Enter" to load the Firefox crash log listing.

Select the most recent entry and scroll through it to find the name of the plug-in, theme or other component that caused the crash.

Disable or update the component to remove the cause of the crash.
This information should be contained in the "Details>Signature" or "Details>Crash Reason" sections.

Open the Tools menu in Firefox and select "Add-ons" if you cannot resolve the crash problem by disabling or updating a plug in.
Scroll through the list of installed browser add ons, disabling add ons one at a time in an attempt to correct the error.

If the crash occurs when trying to view certain types of content, such as streaming video or other media files, focus in disabling add-ons that are related to that type of content.

Open the Help menu and select the "Troubleshooting Information" option if crashes occur only when attempting to download files.

Locate the "Application Basics" entry, then click the "Open Containing Folder" link to open the folder containing your Firefox profile.

Exit Firefox, then select the "downloads.sqlite" file in your profile folder and delete it.
This removes your download history, eliminating any problems with the file and allowing Firefox to create a new file when it launches again.

Update Firefox.
Some crashes are caused by problems within the Firefox program itself, such as problems with specific operating systems or crashes that occur only in new Firefox releases.

Updates may contain fixes to these Firefox crashes, eliminating the crash problem once the browser update is installed.

I have a Dell Inspiron Mini and recently I tried turning it on and it went straight to the Blue Screen of Death with the error text code: 'UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME', I have Googled everything about the...


9 / 10 times that message appears when your hard drive has crashed.

If I were you I would find a 1gb or larger usb flash drive and download and install ubuntu to the flash drive, boot it, then check to see if I could access the hard drive.

If you can't then your hard drive has for sure crashed and will need to be swapped out.

Error : 10-FC12-0002 comes up during Toshiba system rocovery what does it mean and how do i fix it?


I download this from the Toshiba support site:
While running a full system recovery from the Recovery Media, the installation may fail -- and display one of the error messages listed below. Possible causes of these error conditions are listed at right. Use this list as a troubleshooting guide -- not as an absolute list of causes, as there may be others.
"An error has occurred. ERROR :10-FC10-1710" -- may be caused by a faulty hard drive.
"An error has occurred. ERROR :10-FC12-0241" -- may be caused by a faulty hard drive or defective memory.
"An error has occurred. ERROR :10-FC12-045D / 10-FC11-045D" -- may be caused by a faulty hard drive. *****
"An error has occurred. ERROR :10-FC06-0002" -- may be caused by damaged recovery media or faulty hard drive.
"An error has occurred. ERROR :10-FC12-0970" -- may be caused by defective memory.
*for this error 10-FC12-045D u nid to call 1-800-457-7777 toshiba advance technical support they will send it to depot or they will recommend ASP (Authorized Service Partner)

I suppose your recovery disks could be bad. You can get another set from Toshiba. I'm also concerned about the health of the hard drive. Did you need to run recovery because the system crashed, because it may not have been an operating sysem crash but rather a hard drive crash. Have the harddrive or whole laptop checked by a reoutable repair person or check my website: www.micromendllc.com

Hard drive was working good then just crashed now computer wont


I had a similar issue with a SATA drive i put into an older p4. I suggest you unhook the drive from the cables and reattach it, just to make sure the connections have not worked loose. If they are tight, then you may want to try a different port on the system board. Since I dont know if it is a SATA or EIDE, I can only assume that, based on size, it is SATA. SATA drives have great performance but cheap data cables. Try a different data cable, or a different sata port. If it is EIDE (40 pins) then make sure the cables are all tight, and please make sure that ANYTIME you work on the computer, you have the power OFF and its UNPLUGGED, so that you dont fry your mainboard. In my own case, the data cable was kinda loose, so it would work loose and drop the drive off the system, forcing me to crash and have to fix the cable and restart. I got a better sata cable and have no trouble.
