I have misplaced the power adaptor for my Maxtor OneTouch II 250 external drive. The model number is E01G250. It's the USB/Firewire combo version.
That drive is no longer available, and nor is the adaptor. To get up and running again, I need to order a replacement adaptor from one of the companies specializing in out-of-stock products, but several of them have told me that I need the part number for the adaptor. Just knowing the model number of the drive, they tell me, is insufficient.
No problem, right? Wrong. Unbelievably, the folks at Seagate/Maxtor have informed me that it is impossible to discern the part number for my missing power adaptor by providing them with the model of my drive.
I am hoping that someone reading this thread might happen to own this drive and could provide me with the part number for the power adaptor. I am lost without my external drive.
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
