How can I block access to the hard drive to windows when the computer is blocked?

When I leave the computer on and 'blocked' option it accesses the hard drive and "work like crazy. Simple I want to block all the software to access the disk hard until I connect again.

I want the computer to be available on the network, but does not.

Thank you


Sorry, but that is simply not possible.  Each computer doing something, if you're connected or not, each tick every millisecond it's on.  If you could freeze the process somehow, you would also freeze the processes and services that would allow you to access the network. Better, we advise to leave it alone, lock to prevent others from accessing and then do what you need to on the network.

  • How can I put in a new hard drive to replace the main HD that crashed and that contains the operating system

    My HD C: broke down and needs to be replaced.  It contained the operating system (XP).  My other drive is OK.  I have all the original cdroms, including the operating system.
    I need to know if I should be careful what it is.

    Hello Nigel

    Each hard drive is different with their adjustment as far as riders go unless you have purchased the same exact model. Make sure that you set the jumpers on the correct setting for the new hard drive with the manual that came with the hard drive. You can also reconnect the cables of data and power supply for the reader who does not appear because they can be loosened.
  • How can I transfer images from external hard drive with the gateway settings to new computer?

    I used to use Adobe Bridge on a computer that no longer works. My computer tech then made the hard drive of this computer on an external hard drive. Now I want to transfer all those images with all the settings, I applied them to my new computer. My new computer is a PC with Windows 7 and I run Adobe Creative Cloud on it.

    Thanks for your reply. Where the xmp file?

    It depends on your preferences settings. By default, Bridge is set to store metadata in an XMP file. This is the file that has the same name as the original, but it only use the extension ".xmp" instead of Raw file extension.

    Bridge stores this file in the same folder as the original. If you use Bridge to move the files to another location it selects automatically the xmp files to travel with her.

    If you use the view menu / show hidden files, you will see what Curt meant by XMP are hidden files, all have a document icon.

    If you converted to DNG RAW format this data is written to the file itself, as is the case with other types of files such as jpeg and tiff, that can be managed by the cab.

    You should be able to copy the whole folder to your new system or bridge to the old disk, select the file in the content panel and the use of the Control Panel folder to navigate to the new location and use drag and drop

  • How can I transfer files from a hard drive on a second hard drive on the same computer

    My 150 G hard drive is full - I installed a second drive hard 150 G and need to download my original hard drive

    My 150 G hard drive is full - I installed a second drive hard 150 G and need to download my original hard drive

    First of all, note that "Download" isn't really an appropriate word.

    Moving files from one disk to the other does not differ from moving from one folder to another folder on the same drive. There are several ways to do so. The two most common are:

    1. copy / paste

    2. open the source and destination in two instances of Windows Explorer (or my computer) and drag and drop from one to the other.

  • Pavilion 15-ab057nr: How can I change for one SSD HARD drive and update my RAM?

    Hi, I would like to change the hard drive of my computer (Pavilion 15-ab057nr) for one ssd and also add another module of RAM. The problem is that I've never opened a laptop before, and I don't know where to start, or what should I do after I opened the computer. I don't know if anyone could help me by giving me a guide on how to perform these upgrades, every little detail would be useful. Thank you.

    Hi @IYMF,

    Thank you for visiting the HP Forums! A place where you can find solutions for your problems with the help of the community!

    I stumbled upon your post on the HP Pavilion Notebook - 15-ab057nr and tried to help you! I looked in your question about upgrading the internal hardware. I understand that you are looking to upgrade your hard drive to a Solid State Drive, as well as adding another module of RAM.

    Here is a link to your Service Manual. You can find the specifications for compatible discs on page 49. Please note that this laptop model doesn't support that type hybrid Solid State Drives.

    Maintenance manual, page 55, there will be a list of the size of RAM supported, but also a guide on the replacement of the RAM. Up to 16 GB of RAM may be supported in a 8GB x 2 configuration.

    On pages 46 to 50 of your maintenance manual, you will find instructions on how to remove the rear panel of the laptop, as well as, instructions on the removal of the original hard drive.

    I also found this Vidéo Guide giving visual aid on the replacement of the hard disk. The model of laptop in the video is not exactly the same as the model that you have, but it can provide assistance, however.

    Please let me know how it goes.

    How to enable another computer game acess my fire wall

    Hi Roy,

    If you are using Windows Firewall, the last item in this article shows you how to open a port in the firewall to allow access:

    For more information, see the following: (WS.10) .aspx.

    It may be more than just the firewall.  You need to allow remote access (in control panel / system / remote settings / Remote Access) and Remote Desktop (same place, but just below).

  • How can I restore Vista after replacing hard drive?

    Hi I have a PC laptop toshiba stellite with basic windows vista preinstalled, I suffered a hard drive failure and I had to install a new hard drive, I did save the procedure hard disk original and recorded on the disc but the disc will not work on the new hard drive, I have still the product key for the original operating system can I how can restore the operating system to factory condition

    Contact your computer manufacturer and ask them to send a recovery disk/s Vista set.

    Normally, they do this for a cost of $ small.


    Or borrow a good Microsoft Vista DVD (not Dell, HP, Acer, recovery disk/s etc).
    A good Vista DVD contains all versions of Vista.
    The product key determines which version of Vista is installed.

    There are 2 disks of Vista: one for 32-bit operating system, and one for 64-bit operating system.

    If install a cleaning is required with a good DVD of Vista (not HP, Dell recovery disks):

    At the startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, go to Setup/Bios or F12 for the Boot Menu

    Go to your Bios/Setup, or the Boot Menu at startup and change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order, then reboot with the disk in the drive.

    MS advice on the conduct of clean install.

    A tutorial on the use of a clean install

    Super Guide Windows Vista Installation

    After installation > go to the website of the manufacturer of your computer/notebook > drivers and downloads Section > key in your model number > get latest Vista drivers for it > download/install them.

    Save all data, because it will be lost during a clean installation.
