    No autoplay window when Lenovo External Hard disk is connected to Windows 7 Professional

    I connected Lenovo External Hard disk to Windows 7 Professional System. It does not show the autoplay window automatically. Normally, when a device is connected to the system, it should show the autoplay window. Please, anyone help me in providing the solution.

    STEP 2: Go to “Control Panel”.
    STEP 3: Click “Hardware and Sound”.
    STEP 4: Go to “Auto Play” and click it.
    STEP 5: There from the drop down box beside particular device, option selected might be “Take no action”.
    STEP 6: Select the option “Ask me every time”.
    STEP 7: You will get auto play now onwards when you connect an external device to your System.
