I have a newly installed Fantom 1 TB HD. (Two months ago)
Yesterday I was rearranging my computer room, after getting everything where I wanted it and hooking everything back up, my 1TB hd is not recognized by the computer and when I turn it on, the blue light blinks and it continually beeps.
Running win XP Pro, P-4, 2.53, 2 G ram. any suggestions? Thanks, Bill

I finally located the problem. I did what you suggested Bob and nothing was any different. I then disconnected everything in order to start again. I found that I had two identical input power cords, I changed the two and everything is working fine. Thanks, Bill

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?
