  1. Hard Drive randomly disconnecting


    Hey guys!

    It has been problem after problem with this PC and Windows 10. Now at the moment, I have had issues with my external hard drives randomly disconnecting. A few days back, both were randomly disconnecting then reconnecting while not in use. When replugging the USB, this kept giving me a Bluescreen then in the end it caused power failure where my PC couldn't keep power for more than a second or two. After taking out and putting back in the RAM, it revived it back to life and have had no such issue as yet.... untill today.

    Am currently copying files over from my external to a friend external hard drive. Now my hard drive keeps randomly disconnecting then reconnecting very frequently, and it becoming very fustrating.

    If anyone may have an idea what the issue is? Would be very much appreciated.

    :)

    Number 1 this is not Microsoft Support. This forum is made up of user that are helping each other.

    Have you looked in Disk Management?

    Have you looked in Device manager?
