computer freezes in shutdown screen

by AlexTheCrazy / December 14, 2012 12:53 AM PST

I recently acquired a SC101 network hard drive and installed the program for it. Now, my computer keeps stalling at the shutting down screen (after the desk top closes, just the blue screen). Does anyone have any experience with something like this happening?

Did you uninstall that program for a test?

And if it solved it, did you check their web site for a new version?

No, not yet. I plan on doing that, but I figured I'd post and see if anyone had advice first

My advice is to remove it and see if it fixes it.

Then check the web site to see if they have newer versions.

Try, uninstall the program or see if there is any updated version.
If non of this works, then contact the company who made the network drive

BTW, I owned that toaster years ago. I gave it away.

Why? It was utter crap. It ran hot and drives would die every year. So I put it on Freecycle and it was gone. Later they asked me why I gave it away.

-> Let's hope you didn't pay for it.

PS. http://support.netgear.com/product/SC101 writes "end of life, service unavailable" which is an understatement.

I didn't pay a cent for it. I read up how it fucks up every once and a while. Just testing it out.

I paid for it and it was a P.O.C.

My serial number ended in 007. Funny but you remember the bad stuff.

It's bad, move on, don't roast drives in it.

Time attempting to Sync
by ivxNinja / December 14, 2012 11:26 PM PST

I'm an IT Analyst and at our company we have computers that were cloned from images and they all seem to have this same issue. When I took some time to look into the issue, I found that sometimes after disconnecting from the network, it attempts to sync up with Windows time but because there is no network it just waits. Next time you boot up, try checking your event viewers for some possible indicators we can look into?

Did you ever have the SC01?
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / December 14, 2012 11:31 PM PST

If you did, you would know the issue. Also the fact the drivers were for XP and even there it was a piece of crap. I forgot that thing until my second reply then I went "Dang, that thing!"

A little history of this model would have you tell them what to do next and not lead off with sync or such.
