I tried to open my computer today and my screen went black after the XP logo finished. After several tries, I disconnected my desktop ext drive and the computer came on normally. My ext drive WD1000H1CS-00 is connected to my computer using the external sata cable connection. The drive is almost full, but I’ve not had any problems up to now.
What can I do? I’m going to buy a 2 T drive, but how do I get the information from the old drive into the new drive if the old drive makes my computer freeze up?
