Windows 7: My computer does not recognise Omega external hard drive and crashes.

17 Dec 2016   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit


Just re-installed my win7 but still getting crashes. I have uploaded my files on Omega external hard drive but when I try to connect error code 43 appears.

Un-installed the driver for the Omega but still can't get it connected.

Any free software could help repair such thins? My Logitech webcam Pro 9000 also keep on disconnecting.


I reverted back to Win 7 Ultimate and it still crashes. It has asked me to run the repair programme from the disc and I tried but there is no option for repair but install.

Could I get it repaired on internet please?

I had my files stored on external Omega hard drive when I first used Win 7 but now it doesn't recognise my USB connection.

Any solutions please?

How did you reinstall Win 7? Restore point from Win 10, using Acer Factory Recover or by a fresh install?

Is SP1 installed on Win 7?
Open Device manager and see if all drivers are installed (no yellow remark).
Did you installed the important updates?
