External hard drive power problem

  Sparky3327 12:00 25 Feb 09

I have a Maxtor 250Gb external HDD which is refusing to power up properly somehow.
It usually has a bright green light showing and I can hear the whirring of the disk, but now there's no whirring and the green light is merely now a flicker, which shows some power is getting through I suppose.
Does this mean there's a fault within the unit itself or more likely a fault with the 12v adaptor feeding it?
Many thanks,
