    As above. hard drives may be changed, so I want to know if there's another way of finding out how many years the PC has been used. A similar utility for monitors will be great too.

  2. Overclock your hard drive!!!

    Heres a much easier hack that I realized quite a few years ago that really does work!

    REQUIREMENTS:
    • Hard drive with molex power connection.
    • PSU with more than 1 strand that has molex plugs on it.
    • Wire strippers, soldering iron if you're fancy, electrical tape if you're not.
    STEPS:
    • Take the strand of connectors from your PSU, and decide which one will be the donator for this overclocking adventure.
    • Cut the yellow and orange cables, then twist them together.
    • Find the power connector you've chosen as the overclocking connector, and release the orange cable from the connector. Now use your preferred method to bind them together, then place it back together.
    • Plug in a drive and feel the speed!
    Congratulations! You've just overclocked your hard drive!

    2nd Hard Drive Powers Down Automatically

    Hi,

    This issue may arise due to the following reasons:

    • Hard drive failure or corruptions.
    • Issues with the power supply.
    • USB related issues.
    • Driver conflicts.
    As an initial troubleshooting step, I suggest you to uninstall and reinstall the USB drivers and check if the issue persists.

    1. Press Windows Key + R Key.

    2. Then type “devmgmt.msc” without the quotes and hit onEnter Key.

    3. Expand Universal Serial Bus Controllers.

    4. Right click and click on delete.

    If the issue still persists, check if the power management option is turned in the in the USB drive or other devices when you connect the hard drive.

    a. Press Windows key + X and select
    Device Manager.

    b. In Device Manager, under
    Universal Serial Bus Controllers
    , double-click on the 1st Root Hub.

    c. Go to the Power tab to see if the drive is connected to it. If not, try the next Root Hub. If so, click the
    Power Management tab. Uncheck the box that says: "allow computer to turn off this device to save power

    Hope the information helps. Please do let us know if you need further assistance. We will be glad to assist you.

    Thank you
