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

click start control panel administration 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


sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable


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,

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

if this fails to fix the problem
you might have to install a usb 2 or 3 card they are cheap and easy to install you can buy these on Ebay very cheap

My desktop has an orange light no beep sounds when starting it won't boot up the back where ethernet plug goes is orange too the fan makes a burning smell also


Orange light usually means the harddrive or computer is processing and loading, But it can also mean that there is a problem with the hard drive. Start your computer and wait. If you see orange light it means its working to boot up, it might take a while, you might see your screen black for a while but eventually will work.

To fix this problem you need to upgrade more hard drive space, RAM memory and processor speed

Nowadays a computer should have a minimum of 2GB of RAM memory, at least 120GB of Space, and about 2.0Ghz of processing speed.

You can also buy great refurbished computers which are cheaper. Most of them come with 4GB of RAM memory, 250GB HD Space and 2.5Ghz processing speed.

It only blink the orange light and the computer could not start.


What, orange light, when you ask a question tell me all the details, what motherboard? are you talking about a motherboard or computer or laptop? There's lots of lights on a motherboard you see, so saying light on the motherboard could mean anything. does the computer post. Does it get into the bios. If it gets into the bios but won't get into windows your hard drive may be broken or unplugged. Are you sure the monitor is on and connected, have you tried turning it off and on again, if you can get into bios, go and see if your hard drive is listed under sata or pata devices, if not check your connections then maybe replace your hard drive or call your computer manufacturer.

Computer hard drive does not startup Then after 4 or 5 using switch to turn on it might start but showing bars on screen or freezing on desktop ????? thank you


Fist clean your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor specifically around your central processing unit making sure there is no moisture in the air line

as dust will cause a lot of static which will make a computer overheat and cause lots of problems

then test your power supply unit PSU

reple all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your motherboard to hard drive one bad lead will cause a computer to shut down

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?

then click start?run type?cmd then type?chkdsk/f which will automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive then defragment your hard drive

you have to keep?a computer very clean & free of dust ?and? give it regular?maintanance

?

good luck with this

Disc not recognised by computer, orange light showing on front


Orange light and clicking noise sounds like the hard drive has failed.
The enclosure should still be good so if you can open it and replace the hard driver you will be back in business.

Good luck.

The DVD/+ of My Acer just stopped working


Sounds like the data connection to the drive has been lost. The power connection is still present, though. i would try to remove the drive, and with a light try to look at the connectors on the inside of the computer and also at the back of the drive. If nothing is obviously wrong, blow the area out with air and plug it back in. If this doesn't fix it, start looking for a new DVD drive for the computer. Good luck!

Try taking the battery out and use only the AC. If everything turned out fine, it could be a problem on the battery or on the port.
