A: Windows 7 dont detect External HD

Sounds like the external drive had died. It's possible just the enclosure electronics has died and the drive itself is still okay. You can remove it from the enclosure and install it as a 2nd hard drive in your computer, mount it in another external drive enclosure or buy a USB Universal Drive adapter and connect it to your computer that way.

I have a NewerTech USB 2.0 Universal Drive Adapter that I use for this purpose but there are many other brands available as well. Works with IDE (PATA) and SATA drives from desktop and laptop computers.

Do you have PCI express slots, or just PCI? The only information on the Thinkcenter 52 motherboard is that it has only PCI slots. AFAIK, the ASUS 8400GS only came in PCI express.

Hi,

I have a Samsung S2 External Harddrive HXMU0500A. I tried formatting it, which seemed like a simple enough task to from NTFS to exFAT .

It then said 'Windows was unable to complete the format'.
After that I just unticked 'Quick Format' and changed 'Allocation Unit Size' to 4096Kb

I think another messaged popped up, which I forgot what it exactly said, but basically it said something about formatting being cancelled, because it froze.

Anyhow, just unplugged the harddrive, and plugged it in, then afterwards, it just didn't show up on 'My Computer'

I saw something about going into 'Disk Management'

This is all I see


It shows up here though ...

But again not on 'My Computer'

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

In Disk Management you need to right click on it and create a New Simple Volume, then format it and assign it a drive letter.

Windows 7 will not detect ANY external media, if I plug something into a USB port nothing will even show up on the "My Computer" screen, and the same goes for any disks I put in my disk drive (it still acknowledges the existence of my USB mouse and keyboard however), I have tried with multiple devices and disks, even my disk image mounting program (Daemon Tools) doesn't work.

A:Windows does not detect any external media.

Hi walale12,

Welcome onboard.

1. Were these external media detected before and this happened all of a sudden?

2. Can you correlate anything you did/that happened on your PC after which this happened? For example any new software installation/updates?

3. Can you restore your system back to a point when you installed Daemon Tools? ( I have always viewed Daemon Tools with scorn . As I understand from many User Reports, it can create a lot of problems. Is it the cause in your case, I am wondering.)

Hey guys...newbie posting out of total desperation and needing help!

I bought a Samsung SH-D162D DVD Drive in a USB enclosure to connect to my Toshiba Windows 7 laptop via USB.

I cannot get windows 7 to find it! When I plug in the USB cable the balloon comes up to say it has been installed, I can see it on My Computer for about 1 or 2 minutes then it drops off. It isnt listed in my hardware or anything.

Its not found in Disk Management or My Devices so it isnt a case of changing the drive letter - i cant find the drive to change it.

I have also tried to find the upper and lower settings in regedit....couldnt find them so couldnt delete them as advised in other posts of this nature.

It is set to master, the IDE connector and power connectors are fine. Its gotta be a windows 7 problem cause it does show up very breifly. In the minute or 2 its there I cant do anything with it...it just hangs although it will open and close. Ive googled it and cant find anything...mainly registry issues but they didnt help.

Ive also connected it up to another laptop with XP and had no problems so I know the DVD Rom works fine and all the cables are ok.

Ive tried in all 4 USB ports on my laptop and also turned off all energy settings...all with no luck. And I also have EVERY windows 7 update...

Heres exactly what happens from power off on the enclosure.

1 - I plug in the USB lead then turn on power to the enclosure.

My old PC had win xp.
 
My old HDD had two partitions C: and D:.
 
Now when accessing the old HDD as an external disk, I can find the first partition C: but in place of partition D: , it does not show at all and size shown is 0. ( 0 used and 0 available)
 
the files and folders are obviously not seen too.
 
what can be wrong and how do i access this partition again.

My PC cannot detect the HD that I removed from the Playstation 3. The HD was working fine, just upgraded for more space and decided to use the old one for backup. I have read many posts about this same problem, however most people want to be able to read and save game data from the HD. I merely want to be able to format it to NTFS. Apparently PS3 works with HD's on FAT32, so I'm guessing it's FAT32 at the moment. When I plug in the USB it chimes as usual but the device won't show up. If I go to device manager it sees what appears to be the bridge in the external caddy that the HD is now in. The light on the caddy also comes on and the HD is spinning. Any ideas why it won't detect the HD?

I have around 10 external HDDs, some I use for Wii games, some for PS3 games. They are not originally external, usually taken out from PC or Laptop. Various producers (WD, Seagate...)

Hi,

I've had an external drive for awhile that is not detected on startup. However, if you plug and unplug the drive after windows has booted, it then appears as any other usb device would and runs fine from that point on. Additionally, I just bought a second external drive and it detects normally with no problem. Any suggestions? I've scoured the HD manufacturer's site, my MB manufacturer's site, and the web with no solutions as of yet.

There's no conflict with the drive letters, I've tried swapping out the USB cable, and I've tried various ports to no avail. I'd really appreciate any insight.

Thanks,

Hi.

But whenever I connect my headphones (With built in microphone) into the jack it doesn't detect it. My friends can't hear me over skype calls and I've been trying to troubleshoot the problem. Any ideas how to fix this? thanks.
 

A:Computer can't detect external microphone

I've done some digging with your particular model, and it would appear that a multitude of people are in the same boat as you. The only solution I found was to update your audio drivers, or to uncheck a setting particular setting (located here). If that doesn't work, it's likely that you have a faulty audio jack.

However, in my experience, some audio jacks are finicky when it comes to certain headphones. Because you mentioned that you have headphones with a built-in microphone, it's likely that you have a three-ringed 3.5mm male connector. Some audio jacks don't like that because they expect a two-ringed 3.5mm male connector. Before you rule out a bad jack, see if you can find a pair of headphones that have a two-ringed 3.5mm connector and try that. If you're unsure what I mean, take a look at these pictures for reference (the top is two-ringed, bottom is three):

Hello,
I'm new here, so I'm sorry if I don't really get what exactly the informations should I share.
I have Toshiba HDD 1TB v63700-c and laptop ASUS A46CB using Windows 7 Ultimate x64.
Recently I can't open my HDD in my laptop, while my laptop still can identify that there is a drive connected via usb drive. When i use my brother's PC, i can access my HDD in My Computer.

I searched for the same problem in this forum, and I get the link : External HDD can't be open but can be partially detected

I tried to do the Rogue Killer Scan and attach the report. So, what do I have to do next ?
Please help me. Thank you so much.

A:External HDD can't be opened, but the laptop still can detect it

I assume (by it's size) that it's a portable HDD (no power adapter). You say your unit "identifies" it, but not how. If it shows in Device Manger > Disk Drives, have you tried updating the driver? When you left click on it and choose Properties, does it say it's working properly? Did you use the same USB cable with your brother's machine?

Again in Device Manager, are there any Yellow Warning flags for either the HDD or any of the USB connections?

Did you install any Toshiba software with the HDD? If so, did you try uninstalling it?

If you can see it in Disk Management, have you made sure it shows as formatted for your unit?

Have you tried a different external HDD?

Hello everyone! well I'm having some trouble getting an external hard drive to be recognized by my computer. I have quite a few already, but I got another one because one of them won't read on my comp, although it will read on my netbook. The new drive I got has the same issue, no go on the comp, but works fine on the netbook.

I tried unplugging all of the other drives but Windows 7 simply won't recognize it being plugged in. No "badump" sound and no icon in My Computer. Tried restarting, nothing. I tried it in all six of my computer's USB ports, but got no better result.

the external hardrive not detected in disk management & device manager (i had added the show all devices registry) any help would be greatly appreciated

I recently installed a program to allow my PC to read Mac formatted hard disks. However, it did not work and from then forward, my PC is unable to detect all other external hard disks, I've tried a few. The drives are not even showing on disk management. The lights on the hard disk do light up with I plug them in but nothing happens.

Is anyone able to solve this mystery for me. BTW this problem only occurred after I installed the above mentioned program.

A:Can't Detect External Hard Disk

Well, what's the program and have you tried removing it?
There are simple ways to format external HDDs so they can be used both on PC and Mac. It would be a good idea to format HDDs you know you'll use on both platforms this way. Instructions are usually included with the drive, at least both my LaCie and WD included them.
Hope this helps,

I'm trying to connect my XPS 15 to my TV through an HDMI. I've done Win + P and tried to extend / duplicate the screen, but it doesn't work. I went to the control panel and found out my computer isn't recognizing the HDMI is plugged in. I've tried a few different cables and TV's, but the same thing happens. What is wrong?

Thanks for the help.

A:XPS 15 doesn't detect external display

I found that I had to use the GPU driver software to get my computer to work properly with my TV. Windows wouldn't do it on its own.

I suggest you try stepping through the troubleshooting list here first:

Looking through other posts, the problem likely rests with the TV. There seems to be no standard for TVs communicating with computers.

My PC does not detect my microphone when I plug it in.

I have tried using more than one microphone in case the microphone was broken, but no microphone is detected when I plug it in. Likewise, I have made sure that there are no external mute or on/off switches on the microphones which are preventing them from working.

I have made sure all of the drivers are up to date by going through my Device Manager.

I've also toyed with the properties by right-clicking on the icon in the system tray as well as going into the volume control in the control panel, but I still can't get the microphone to work.

The microphone was working as recently as two weeks ago. Whenever I plugged it in, a SigmaTel Audio window would pop up so I could choose that it was my 'rear mic'. Now, however, the SigmaTel Audio window never even pops up, indicating to me, once again, that my PC is not even detecting that a microphone is plugged in.

Any advice?

Hello,
I just bought an HP Envy 23" All-In-One desktop a few months ago and am just now attempting to pair it with an external monitor (TV) via the HDMI port. The computer doesn't even detect that it's been hooked up to anything and the TV still says "no signal". I tried the same HDMI cable and TV with my laptop and it works fine, so it must be the computer. Any suggestions? Is it a driver problem? I don't know much tech-wise, but am willing to try if anyone has any ideas on how I can fix this.

The operating system is Windows 8.1 and the monitor is an AOC Envision 22" TV, model number L22H998. I visited the AOC website in search of a driver and didn't see the model listed. Is there perhaps an equivalent I could use? I don't know much about drivers.

Thanks and let me know if any more info is required for an accurate diagnosis.

A:New Computer (Win 8.1) Won't Detect External Monitor

Hi Dejalive, welcome to the Eight Forums.

Couple of questions:
Is the TV signal input set to correct HDMI port (for instance if the cable is in HDMI2 in TV, the TV signal input must be set to HDMI2)?Does the Windows Screen Resolution Tool show the TV when HDMI cable is connected both to PC and TV?If Screen Resolution does not show the TV by default, does clicking the Detect button help?

My dog walked by my chair, pulled the external drive power cord, and it fell and hit the ground. Now, all it does is make a weird ticking sound from the inside of it's shell. I go to "My Computer" and it isn't being detected anymore, and when the ticking sound stops, it still isn't detected. I need help, all my data is on that drive and tomorrow I have a huge project.

The ticking sound sounds like a tick, then a ball dropping. It doesn't last very long and it does it for a minute or so, but it's still a reason to be concerned. Once it finishes, the harddrive still can't be detected at all. The harddrive itself works fine, it powers on fine and everything.

I made sure all the three cables were connected properly (the power cable, the outlet cable leading to the power cable, and the USB cable). I left the harddrive off for over 10 minutes, and the problem still surfaces.

A:Laptop wont detect external usb HDD

A few things it could be...
1) A power issue. Are you trying this with the laptop running on the AC adapter ? ?
2) A HDD problem. Try hooking that drive up to another machine and see if it is picked up.

The issue with USB2 is not the problem as the unit was working at one time, but you can check your MBoard manual and it will tell you what type USB you have.

Have you checked your Display Options?

With the monitor connected, right click on the desktop and choose Screen Resolution. In the window that opens you can (should) see two monitors, and options for using them.

If you don't see 2 monitors, the click the Detect button and see if it is recognized then.

Hi,

Ive had, what I believe to be a backdoor trojan on my computer for about 6 weeks now. It started with a malicious pop up which kept appearing making it look like i had loads of viruses and telling me that I needed to buy this virus scanner and my computer would not power off when shutting down. I knew I had a virus so I tried to use my scanner malwarebytes but it would not open, the virus had got to that as well. Eventually I tried copying malwarebytes to a removable media and managed to scan that way. I had lots of trojans including koobface. My computer was still really slow after the scan and they had not been properly deleted because each scan kept bringing the trojans again.

The next problem was my internet browser would not work, i eventually fixed it (cant remember how) but i believe the virus caused this. Then was the disabling of task manager, regedit and gpedit, which i have found by reading forums how to get this enabled again. I have since downloaded AVG, this tells me i have a trojan horse called 'generic7' again I keep scanning, the same viruses are found and deleted then on reboot they are there again. I also noticed that when i can access task manager some proccesses such as windows defender are really high and the only way to run the computer without it crashing/slowing down is to terminate the proccess.

Hi Wes,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I?m sorry to hear that external keyboard is not working in your Lenovo ThinkPad T430 when plugged into dock.
 
Could you try the below mentioned steps?
 

Go to control panel, Open Device Manager.

 

Scroll down to the bottom of the Device Manager Window, and click on ?Universal Serial Bus Controllers? to expand it.

 

Right-click on the first entry in the expanded list named ?USB Root Hub,? and select Disable from the context menu.

 

Right-click once again on that same ?USB Root Hub? entry, and select Enable from the context menu.

 

If it works, the list of items under ?Universal Serial Bus controllers? should refresh, and you should see some additional items in the list.  The USB ports on the docking station and devices connected to them should be working once again.

 
If the above said didn?t help resolve your concern, try uninstalling all the drivers listed under USB Root hub. Restart the system and click on scan hardware changes in device manager. System will auto detect all the new hardware and will install the drivers appropriately.
 
Hope this helps!

Mithun.

Uninstall all devices under Disk Drives that you know are not present.
Uninstall all devices under Storage Volumes. Say no to any reboot prompts until you are finished. Also, if a Storage Volume doesn't uninstall, ignore it and move to the next one.
If you have a yellow ? with unknown devices, uninstall all of the entries there as well.

When this is done, reboot TWICE.

Reconnect the USB devices and see if they're recognized properly.

A:Dell XPS L321X does not detect external usb hard drive

Hi Ashim,
Please try connecting the USB drive into an alternative USB port and see if it helps. You may also try using an alternate USB device such as mouse, flash drive etc to verify the functionality of USB ports.
If the USB ports are not working properly, you may follow the steps below to uninstall USB root hubs and restart the system :

Unplug all USB devices from the computer.
Press Windows + R button on keyboard
Type 'devmgmt.msc' without quotes and press Enter
The Device Manager window will open
Click on > sign next to ‘USB Universal Bus Controllers’ to expand the category.
Right click on each entry listed under USB Universal Bus Controllers and click on ‘Uninstall’.
Click on ‘Yes’ on the security warning.
Restart the computer and Windows will automatically install generic drivers for USB Root Hubs.

If the issue persists after refreshing USB root hubs, you may update the chipset drivers from Here -> Enter the Service Tag of system -> Click on Drivers and Downloads -> select the operating system installed on your computer -> Expand the 'chipset' category and download/install the drivers -> Restart the computer when prompted and check if the hard drive is getting detected.
If you have any questions, please share the system model along with the Operating system installed on computer. Will take it further from there.

Hi guys,

I've had this 3TB hard drive for about 6 months with no problems.

However, for some reason my computer cannot recognise it any more.

It doesn't come up in My Computer, but it comes up in device manager ( see pic 1) and in disk management (see pic 2)

Alarmingly, I can't even assign a letter or do anything but delete the volume (see pic 3)

I can't find the driver cd to install it but I didn't think this would be a problem as I installed it anyway through the computer. I've searched for about 2 days on this forums and others and still can't find a solution. I hope I can find one here

oh and i forgot to mention, i tried the hard drive on two different computers and it had the same problem there as well.

Hi,

I need to connect external camera to my Qosmio. I installed allready the software, but the application see the internal camera only. How to disconnect the internal camera?

A:Qosmio X series doesn't detect external camera

You can disable each device in the device manager
Go to control panel -> device manager
Search for the internal webcam, click right and choose Properties.
Now switch to the tab ?Driver? and click on the button ?Disable?.

But I'm wondering about the external wecam software.
I don?t know what webcam or software you want to use but from my point of few after the connection to USB port, the external webcam should be recognized by installed software.

A:Solved: my external laptop skeakers dont register

Did you reinstall the system drivers after your OS install. You should have gotten a driver disc with your system. Otherwise you can download them from HP's website. We can assist you with locating the drivers that you need if you post the model number of your pavillion.

I'm stumped. I have an emachine 3085 running xp home. It has 2 optical drives, both internal. One is CD, the other is CD/DVD. Both drives stopped reading disks. I have an external Plextor that I connected to the eMachine with a usb cable. The eMachine would not read disks on the Plextor either. Both the disks I have been testing and the external Plextor work on other computers.

Can anyone help? Thank-you.

Hi there,We just received  a shipment of Elitebook 840 G3s.  I wanted to clone my current Folio over to the new laptop but was surprised that when I booted into clonezilla from a 4GB USB Kingston Data traveller that it didn't see the source 256 GB USB SSD Drive.  When I went into the BIOS, it doesn't see the USB Drive, but it does see the thumbdrive and internal SSD. I have tried USB 2 & 3 devices with different drives attached.  The drive is detected when booted into windows and I can browse it. Is anyone aware of an issue with the current 1.05 BIOS and eithe drive size etc... recognized by the BIOS for USB?

Hi,

I bought a new tablet PC

sony vaio ux 180p
Os: Vista business 32 bit
ram:1014 mb
processor: intel(r) core (TM) solo cpu 1.33 Ghz
graphics: mobile intel (R) 945 gm express chipset family

I connected my tablet pc to a regular external desktop monitor
using VGA cord.

HCL
OS: Win xp SP 2
intel(R) premium (R) 4 cpu 1.50 ghz
display: plug and play intel(r) 82845G/GL

Siince vista did not recognize the output device automatically as soon as it was connected, Using the "Windows Mobility Center" application I clicked
the "connect display" button but happened. It showed "display connected" and "connected". but nothing came up on monitor.

I clicked on the "connect display" button again from the Windows
Mobility Center -> Detecting -> pop up options for "how do you want to
use the external display" again. I was provided with three options
1. External display only
2. Mirrored.
3. Extend to external display.

Tried all the three options but nothing happened. So i am trying to figure this thing out. Is it something to do with drivers. I dunno. I am trying to figure this thing out. Any help would be much appreciated.

A:Sony vaio ux180p vista does not detect external monitor

there is a possibility that the monitor also needs a driver. you can check by typing device manager in search. go to the display tab and make sure there is you video card and external monitor. The monitor needs to be connected at the time.

Hi,

Basically my computer is unable to detect a system image on my external hard drive. I had previously deleted it to make room for another backup but wasn't able to make a new one (because I deleted the System Reserved partition, but that's another story).

I used Recuva, a recovery program, to recover all the files that were deleted from the backup. Unfortunately I don't know in what order/specific folder each file needs to be in, and so the the computer isn't detecting the system image.

I had to use a generic Windows 7 disc install to get around the deleted System Reserved partition, to load the affected computer, but I need the specific Dell drivers and would love to get my files back so want the system image to load.

So, thanks for reading my post and for any help you can offer!

EDIT: I have a Dell XPS L502X - Windows 7 Home Premium x64.

A:Unable to detect system image on external hardrive after using Recuva

I once had an experience like that deleted a system image made from the built-in Windows Backup. I used Wondershare Data Recovery and Easeus Data Recovery Wizard but it did not help. In the end I used a later system image created with Paragon Backup and Recovery Advanced. I am using Macrium Free and ATI Home 2011 / 2012 now.

Hey guys, I was hoping someone could help me with a problem my friend and I are having with his new Motherboard.

He's running an Asus M4N68T-M LE V2 and while the rest of the board works fine, it just won't see his graphics card in the PCI-E slot. We've tried various solutions and none have yet to yield any results.

We've tried disabling the onboard graphics through device manager etc. The board also doesn't let you turn off the onboard from BIOS, only allows you to set the priority of the display adapters, which is set to the PCI-E first. It just won't show his card in device manager.

His spec is: Asus M4N68T-M LE V2. AMD Phenom II x4 965 3.4Ghz Black Edition. 4GB (2x2GB) Mushkin 1333Mhz DDR3 Ram. Nvidia Geforce GTS450 GFX Card.

I've also tried using my ATI Radeon 5750HD Card and still shows no detection.

We've been trying this for over a day and we just can't figure it out. Help please

A:Asus M4N68T-M LE V2 won't detect external graphics card in PCI-E Slot

One problem that is common when installing these big video cards into Micro-ATX motherboards is that you may not get the card to fully seat properly because some obstruction is holding it up.

Carefully check the entire card/MB area to see if there is anything that may be propping the card up.
Remove the card and re-seat it looking and listening carefully to hear the rear tang on the video card "click" into place.

Hi there,

I need some good advice here, I hope someone can help me.

I just bought a usb3.0 320gb external hard drive the brand and model are: "Imation Apollo M100"

I plugged it into a usb 3 port and it worked but I wanted to format it before i used it, so i right clicked on it in my computer, and clicked format from the drop down box.

I selected quick format and then started it. It ran for a while, then a box popped up saying: unable to complete format" or something to that effect. after that it was inaccessible. the drive showed in my computer as "local disk H:" or something like that. there was no gauge below it indicating the amount of data remaining on the disc, like all the others (ie: "30gb of 465gb left" which is displayed below my internal hard drives)

from the control panel i went to system & security -> create and format hard disk partitions. in disk management it was there with a 1mb partition and the balance of the space as RAW. so i deleted it and tried to format it again with the same result (minus the 1mb partition) i unplugged it and tried the process again, this time i unchecked "quick format", and still no dice.

now it wont pick up at all... i hear the ding dong when i plug it in, but it doesn't show up anywhere, in my computer or in disk manager.

Has anyone got any idea whats going on or what i have done wrong? im normally able to figure this stuff out but im completely stuck... ... Read more

A:external hard drive problem, unable to detect or format

Hi,

1. Try to connect the USB 3 drive to a USB 2 port, just to discard any problems with USB 3.0 port?

2. Goto Start>Control Panel>select "Icon View">Device Manager
Click the "View" tab and select "Show Hidden Devices"
In the Device Manager window, find the item/items labeled "Universal Serial Bus controllers." And expand.
Now plug the device in. Do you see a USB mass storage driver appear under USB?
Try all USB ports.

3. Also do you see any devices in Device Manager listed as Other or Unknown, or having a yellow symbol?
If so right-click and Update.

4. Update the driver for your USB 3.0.

Hi! I am using Bart PE to recover data from my laptop's hard drive, which has stopped booting up and instead comes up with a blue error message stating that there is an 'unmountable boot volume'. Therefore, using the 'get data back for NTFS' plugin, I have managed to see and get to the stage where I can copy the files to somewhere else to recover them. However, the laptop/software just will not detect my external hard drive, a 320GB USB Toshiba!

Has anyone please got any suggestions as to what I can do to 'see' the hard drive and transfer the data to it? Or how I can get the files off another way? I really need the recent data on it, and my last back-up was two months ago mad!

Hi, im having a problem trying to create a system image and store it in my external hdd.
This isnt the first time i use the windows backup to create a system image, ive done it before using this external hdd with no problems at all.
But now, for some reason it wont detect this hard drive, it only gives me the option to store the image on a dvd, i dont know why?, i tested the hard drive on a different computer and IT WORKS, i tried to create an image and it does work.

Heres a picture so you guys can see the problem:


sorry the image is kinda big, but as you can see on the left, windows DOES detect the hard drive, BUT when i try to create the image, it simply doesnt, it only gives me the dvd option.
i hope you guys can help me here, thanks a lot

A:Create system image won't detect external hard disk

You have not stated the App you are using to create the sysrem image. Please tell us.

I have experienced the same thing once in a way with Acronis but the issue always gets resolved by restarting Acronis. You may try to restart your imaging App to see if the matter gets resolved. But I suspect that you may have already done that to no effect.

The next thing to do would be to change your image back-up App. This might succeed. Please try it out and let us have the results.

You can get your Dell drivers from their drivers site: Drivers & Downloads | Dell US All drivers for a Dell Laptop will be here.
You would need to use your Backup Program to restore a VHD backup. Since you deleted the Backup you will have a hard time restoring the files in the proper order with the .VHD extension.
You can try the free TestDisk Program. I have had the best luck with GetDataBack.

Hi guys.

I'm having a problem connecting my "external" hard drive to my laptop. Now this is a complicated issue, have searched a lot of forums and threads and have tried a lot of different things but nothing seems to be working. Here's the problem:

My stationary computer resently stopped working, so I decided to go ahead and invest in a Hard Drive Link-in to back up what is on the internal hard drive before sending it with the stationary computer for repairs. Now on this hard drive is installed a win7 OS on a SATA Seagate Barracude 7200.12 SATA and I'm trying to hook it up to my HP Notebook Compaq nx6310 laptop computer - not to work as a hard drive but just to access what's on it, so I can back it up.

The problem is my win xp, once having connected it, at first says "device not recognized", but I quickly worked around that problem by entering Device Manager and selecting "unknown device" and uninstalling it and then click "scan for hardware changes" and windows quickly detects that a new usb device has been connected and that the drivers are now installed and is ready to use... however nothing happens.

The "external" hard drive does not show up in "my computer" or under "system" and "manage drives" so it's not a hidden issue nor a drive letter issue and when I look at device manager it's still listed under USB Root as an "Unknown Device" and if clicki... Read more

Hi, I am Emy from the Netherlands. Wish you all a nice day!

I have troubles with - at least - one of the computers in the little network here. I will describe some of the troubles.
-Links to internetpages on the desktop dont work. I need to paste those in a blank window.
-2 weeks ago the home internetpage was blocked. After looking in a lot of forums I found how to change the homepage to Google. (by changing the registry)
-Online scanners for spyware dont start/are interrupted or dont find anything wrong
-Windows installer is coming up after every click I make to install Symantec Antivirus. But Symantec is already installed.
-I tried programs like Ccleaner and ATF; also Combofix. The last one was also interrupted (black screen). I installed the recovery console. Dont know how to delete this console.
-Even when I dont use this computer, it is like the computer is busy - at times (sounds like when using a program busy converting media files)
-I couldnt activate my membership. Not using the first link, nor the second one. Got a message that something wrong.
-I found srchassctl in the registry. Erased the Search Assistant. After rebooting ACMRU was gone, but SrchAssCtl is here again
-I found msmsgs a lot of times on this computer. I think the problems started with a message in the Live messenger.

Now I will paste the properly files to this topic. DDS and Attach

Hello! Registered because I really need help.

My Compaq laptop (Vista) was working just fine last night, connected to my home wireless network all right and all. Today morning my laptop couldn't detect my home wireless network at all, but it could still detect a bunch of other networks from the neighbours. My iPhone can detect my network with no problems, my desktop computer is wired up to the router, works fine too. It's a D-Link DIR-655. This has happened before but usually gets solved when I reboot (switching off and on) my router. I've tried that, tried restarting my computer too, no use. Haven't tried anything beyond that because I'm an idiot with computers.

Can anyone help me please? Thank you.

Yesterday, my computer randomly started screwing up. There is no longer any sound for ANYTHING, and I've tried all the solutions posted on the net which claims to fix "no active mixer device" error message which i am getting when i try to access volume control. At this time, the CD rom was working perfectly.

After hours, i just left it and went to sleep. And then the sound worked again the next morning. But suddenly, the computer restarts itself. When it comes back on, there is no longer sound.

Now, when i try to just reformat the computer, my CD-Rom will not even work properly, it isn't the actual fault of the CD, but it just won't detect ANYTHING. Not even things that worked the night before.

So now i can't refromat, can't get any sound, can't read any CDs, and randomly the computer restarts itself when the sound starts working, and shows blue screen sometimes just as the computer restarts itself so i can't even read what it says..... like less than a second of blue screen.

NOTE: NO changes were made to anything before these problems started taking place. Nod32 can't detect any viruses either.

A:Can't detect active mixer, (ie. no sound), can't detect CDs (ie, can't reformat)

Hello Maldini92

Turn off automatic rebooting
Right-click My Computer / Properties / Advanced / Startup and Recovery/Settings.
Under System Failure, uncheck the Automatically restart check box
You will then get a BSOD with error message which will help identify the problem. This one will stay

Please post the message such as
STOP 0x00000000A IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL
and any drivers named ( *****.sys)

Also
Right click My Computer / Properties / Hardware / Device Manager.
Look for "Yellow" errors
