Click start control panel administrive tools ,computer management ,device manager look through all of your devices if you see a yellow question mark?or exclamation mark ! or red x
right click to reinstall drivers or
if you can see your usb but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver
just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work fine again, sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable,
check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems
hope this helps

My Hitatchi 250GB External Harddrive is not working at all when plugged in to any computer I own/use It makes soft beeping sounds for several minutes and then becomes silent The lights are on, showing


take the hard drive to a computer repair shop but from your description , it may be dead
if it is a disc type hard drive , then continually moving it around is not good for the delicate workings
if it is dead , replace it with a solid state hard drive which has no moving parts and is a lot more robust

Lexmark 7170 all in one scanner not working - printer and copier is working


A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer from your computer. Reboot your pc. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer. Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection.

If you're scanning documents for editing, make sure that the Lexmark OCR scan software is installed on your computer. The OCR scan software is only available on the installation disc that came with your printer (no downloadable version). If you have the disc, simply insert the disc into your computer hard drive and execute the file.

I have a disk crash on an ASUS computer, 3 years old. The Disk is a SATA. How can I get my machine to boot ?


First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty. Next - to check if the harddrive is faulty, remove the hard drive and insert it into an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a workingcomputer's USB port. If this computer cannot see itas an external hard drive and you cannot open the various folders and files,this confirms the hard drive is faulty. Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

Hi, I have a colleagues laptop here which seems to power up for a few seconds but then doesn't go any further. There is definitely power getting through the motherboard, and the HDD spins up, but...


I believe that is a No Post issue.
Its not the hard drive because you said " and the HDD spins up, but it seems as though it doesn't reach POST" or else you 'll be getting errors associated with the hard drive
There are some laptops even though it has a RAM NO POST issue will not beep
" no display and no beeping at all "
For us to determine if this a Motherboard Issue we have to disconnect all parts that can be disconnected. Disconnect the hard drive, Memory (RAM), battery, if you have a Modem daugther card, Express card, PCMCIA Card.
Try Turning the computer on using the Power Adapter hooked up on the computer. If you are still getting issues Definetly that is a Motherboard have gone bad but we really need to check up other parts that are disconnected

If Motherboard is good you will be getting video but it will stop on the POST screen and you might be hearing beep sounds as well. That means that the Motherboard is fine. Put the parts that are disconnected and clean the metal contacts as well one at a time and try to isolate at what part that is bad

My Verbatim model #47512 1tb makes this beeping sound every time i connect it to my computer why?


That beeping signals a failure to communicate between the disk and the motherboard of the pc - the disk is defective. You have a slim chance of recovering what's on it by removing the actual disk from the external case and plugging it in the a desktop.
