R100: FDISK - simple advice needed...

Hey peeps, need for basic assistance on obtaining a R100 Tosh started, she came back to me after Win2k on it by a former user and im trying to rebuild on XP.

I have FDISK would be the drive because there is sensitive data present and created a primary partition of C, start the Xp Cd brings to the top of the blue screen of death after going through the normal configuration bits.

I tried spinning round with a USB plextor nothing helped, so I need to get the boot from cd pcmcia r100 and so he can go through the xp install everything without crashing.

Of course, this is a common question but could not find a reference to it here, appreciate all responses pointing me in the right direction...

Thank you Neil'os...


As far as I know this camera comes with Windows XP Home edition Professional. You have the original recovery CD and Toshiba PCMCIA reader eternal? On this path, the installation will be easy. Otherwise, it can be very complicated. Original restore CD contains the correct driver for the external device from Toshiba.

If you have two partitions on the HARD disk are trying to copy the facilities on the second CD and start from there.

  • Improvement of the reception of the WAP54G - advice needed

    Hi, I got hung a pair of units WAP54G, down the bridge of 100 meters from our House, in a holiday home.  One is connected to our router, the second is in the remote region, with a switch, then a third WAP54G distribute the signal in this remote area.

    This set works like a charm, BUT as it is a holiday home, we really need to put out of sight, bridge unit in the loft.  For the moment that it is in the direct line of sight to another unit, they are both on the window sills.  It's OK, but we'd like to get the second bridge out of sight to keep people from bothering with it.  I tried to put in the same position as on the windowsill, but in the loft, where he is originally of cladding (no brick etc, just wood and plastic), but he can't see the other device when it is in this position.

    Are there branches that I would be able to buy to give a better reception on this bridge? Ideally I'd like a pair of outdoor units I can screw to the wall on the respective buildings and then put a short cable (2-3metres) back inside the units.  This brings me to the second part of the query - boxes have two antennas on the back of them.  When I set up an antenna to gain high only just leave the second OEM stick to the back of the unit, or what? If these antennas be deployed as symmetrical pairs, or anything like that?

    I'm really happy for the operation of the system, on the whole, I want just a small extra reception!

    Thanks much for any reply and the advice on that.

    There are a number of commercially available external antennas. Anything with 7dbi or better should work fine. The connector is referred to as a RP - TNC

    Just mount the WAP54G near the antenna in order to reduce the length of antenna cable and mount the external antenna (outdoor) on the map of the barge and your outside.

    Get power and Ethernet for the WAP54G should be very simple.



  • Partition of Windows in a Virtual Machine - input/advice needed


    We have a Windows operating system in a virtual machine of VMware Vsphere.  There is plenty of room on the SAN.  However, the operating system is running out of space and needs more space.  We have extended the VMFS volume on which the virtual machine is running.  Now, within the OS, is there a simple way to extend the amount of disk hard windows space see without using a tool third 3rd to resize the size of the partition from the point of view of operating system?  Is there a tool VMware to do this, be integrated, or who uses the VMware API to to make it easier than in a world of pure physical server?  When we have extended partitions on a physical server, it takes a lot of time and requires that the server be down during the whole process, so I hope that there is a faster way with less interruptions in service when the operating system is a virtual machine.  Thanks a lot for your comments/advice.

    What produces these hosts guests?

    If you are running on ESX (i)

    a couple of things, if 2008, you can use diskpart to C: and the other data disks.  For 2003, you can use diskpart for non system partitions and something like extpart for system scores.

    .. .or if all else fails, use a helper VM or VMware Converter.

  • Satellite P100-307 Exchange HARD drive help/advice needed


    Thanks for your recent advice on exchanging my 200 GB HDD in to a 500 GB Sized HDD.

    Can you please let me know what I should do with the new HARD disk, so that my P100 can recognize (I format etc.)? I would like the existing to the new mirrored HDD... How does go?

    Sorry to bother you with this beginner Questions...


    Windows will recognize a new hard drive (I assume that you will start the machine from cd) and it has need of formatting it will tell you. You will then need to change the format to FAT32 to NTFS - Windows Help will tell you how to...
    If you are keen on the old disk to the new disk of mirror image, then I think that google some research is in order for example "mirror new portable drive ' there are older versions of disk imaging programs available for free download that will handle NTFS. to search for names include Norton Ghost and Acronis.
    How do you think 'connect' the old and new readers - for example, external usb box on a network, set up two disks on a pc.
    You can copy all the files using the DOS command xcopy with the selector include hidden files/folders.
    Your old drive has a hidden for purposes of recovery partition and you must decide how you manage it.

  • Presentation of screen advice needed

    I am trying to build a number of presentations that will extend over several screens (at least three), each with their own content (not mirrored).

    I looked into a calibration screen (Matrox) solution and it may work, but as we'll probably to 4 k video in the future the limitation of the resolution is a hesitation, and the load of many videos and work to create a triple width presentation.

    It seems that several computers is my only option to support video, and transitions that I need, but if anyone has any ideas, I'm open to suggestions.

    On the same note, if I go to several computers, can anyone recommend a good method for triggering the progress of presentation of three or more synchronization?

    I saw KeyshowX and I will take pleasure all comments there, or alternatives. I thought go as simple as a tracking of unique presentation device linked to three computers, but the bluetooth will pair only on a Mac.


    Thank you.

    I've not done on a Mac - could do well on PC. Unfortunately I'm not the geek tech leading the charge. But I know we use several video and a mosaic of NVIDIA http://www.nvidia.com/object/nvidia-mosaic-technology.html cards

    It works pretty well, although we are fighting with the configuration every time. He might go easier on a Mac.

    As for using several computers I do for years. For the best possible synchronization using a Cue system perfect with the extension http://www.dsan.com/CueLights/CueAccessories.asp

    However, there are two major considerations when you do this:

    (1) once you have your split file multiple sources, it must be incredibly diligent in keeping the corresponding files (if you add an animation to a file, you must add one on all others - even if it is a fake click).

    (2) no matter how perfect the benchmark system, a slide that has 20 MB of pictures on it will take more time to load than with just a background and text, so that you may encounter synchronization problems. This is the main reason that I moved to the unique presentation on multiple screens.

    I'm trying to understand how the output to an LED screen which is actually more than 4 K! We are looking at currently is lower res and having the line of meter double!

    Hello Chris,

    I by removing the hard drive and put it in a USB enclosure. There are 2 types of one HD is IDE the other is SATA. You can buy one from Newegg.com for less than $ 15. You may need to take possession of the disc and its files if you do this. Here are the steps: to take ownership of a file or a folder how to appropriate a file you must have owner of a protected file to access. If another user has restricted access and you are the computer administrator, you can access the file to appropriate.

    To take ownership of a file, follow these steps:

    1. Right click on the file that you want to take control and then click Properties.
    2. Click on the Security tab, and then click OK in the security message (if one appears).
    3. Click Advanced, and then click the owner tab.
    4. In the name list, click administrator, or click the Administrators group, and then click OK.
      The administrator or the Administrators group now owns the file.

    To change the permissions on the file that you now own, follow these steps:

    1. Click on Add.
    2. In the list enter the object names to select (examples) , type the user or group account that you want to have access to the file. For example, type administrator.
    3. Click OK.
    4. In the group or user names list, click the account you want, and then select the check boxes of the permissions you want to assign to this user.
    5. When you're done to assign permissions, click OK.
    6. You can now access the file.

    How to capture a record you must have ownership of a protected folder to access. If another user has restricted access and you are the computer administrator, you can access the folder by taking possession.

    To take ownership of a folder, follow these steps:

    1. Right click on the folder that you want to take control and then click Properties.
    2. Click on the Security tab, and then click OK in the security message (if one appears).
    3. Click Advanced, and then click the owner tab.
    4. In the name list, click your user name, click administrator if you are logged in as administrator, or click the Administrators group. If you want to take ownership of the contents of the folder, select the check box Replace owner of subcontainers and objects .
    5. Click OKand then click Yes when you receive the following message is displayed:
      You are not allowed to read the contents of directory folder name. Do you want to replace the the directory permissions with permissions granting you full control?

      All permissions will be replaced if you click Yes. Note folder_name is the name of the folder you want to take charge.

    6. Click OK, and then reapply the permissions and security settings that you want for the folder and its contents.

  • Defective spare battery - seller says I need to update BIOS - advice needed

    Any advice will be appreciated.

    I bought a spare online battery for my laptop. Since the replacement of the battery, the PC has increased its noise level (IE more often that otherwise seems overwork), so I did a "HP Battery Check" and the result States "one or several cells don't work properly. I contacted the seller, and they say I need to update my BIOS.

    I'm a little worried about it for several reasons:
    1. the software clearly indicates that the battery is not working properly.
    2. the computer and all other software works well.
    3. I have never played with before BIOS and after googling "update of the BIOS", almost all suggest "DO NOT go" unless: you know what you do / the problem is clearly a related problem of BIOS (HP State diagnostics is the battery... and shows no system other problems).

    I'm ok with the replacement of hard drives, RAM etc and treat fairly confident with most software and hardware problems, but I never tried to update a BIOS... and as I need my laptop (and all software running on this subject at the moment) and do not want to go through the stress of venturing into uncharted territory on a current PC - I'm more tempted to just buy another battery from a different company and put this to a bad experience online, as the seller does not simply want for refund or Exchange (as much as the cost of replacing the battery... still!... compared to the opening of a world of problems after trying to update a BIOS which seems to work very well anyway!).

    As I said, any advice would be really appreciated

    Thanks in advance


    PS No. knew software or hardware has been installed since the replacement of the battery

    Details of the laptop: HP G70 111EA laptop, Intel Core Duo T5800 @ 2.00 GHz, 3 GB RAM, Vista Home Premium (32 bit).

    If the purchased battery has been specified in the appropriate type for your computer, I see no reason why a BIOS update would make a difference. More likely, the seller hope you will turn your computer into a brick by updating the BIOS, making it a moot issue bad battery.

    Before you start, I would do anything I can to put in place from an outside source if the battery is actually defective. If you do not know someone with a similar laptop, a computer store or from taking the battery might check what said you that your software. A bad cell in a battery is usually obvious by a voltage drop so that the battery either distributes the specified voltage or it is not.

    If the battery is really bad, they know you ship the battery to them (signature required) and then proceed to cancel any credit card (or other method of payment online product/service) charges. While online sales generally operate at profit margins very tight, which, in itself, does not not to honour a request for an exchange of the product. Stop payment on an item usually attracts attention.
  • Advice needed centenarians and hi-res W520 or new and low resolution W530?

    Hello people!

    I'd appreciate your advice and your experience to help me with my contemplation.

    Im a CAD (solidworks, autocad, revit) and graphics (adobe, sony vegas) user, I need a new machine because my x200t do not support the load more...

    I have a limited budget, and I have two options with the same price (of Lenovo in any case):

    A demo version of W520:

    Machine type/model: 42844 MG

    Intel Core i7-2860QM - 2.5 GHz

    2 x 4 GB 500 GB 7200 RPM

    15.6 inches (1920 x 1080 nVidia 2000M 2 GB)

    DVD - Rec

    WiF, cornflower, WWAN

    RPF 9elements color sensor Cam card reader

    Windows 7 Pro 64

    New W530:

    Intel Core i7-3720QM - 4 c - 2.6 GHz

    8GB 500 GB 7200 RPM + 32 GB mSATA

    15.6 inch (1600 x 900 nVidia Quadro 1100 M)

    DVD - Rec WiFi color sensor of fingerprint 4-in-1 card reader

    Backlit keyboard 9 cell cam

    Windows 7 Pro 64

    I would buy something and forget the upgrade for the next 3 years...

    I'd appreciate advice.

    Kind regards


    • Do not spend money for the color sensor. Buy a sensor of external color that you can use the laptop monitor and your internal display.
    • Why do you have 32 GB on the W530 mSATA? Go with an SSD as a single disc, or go with an SSD in the main Bay and the HARD drive in an adapter ultra bay. I don't think that the 32 GB mSATA is logical from the financial point of view as a disk cache only.
    • Do you need the cam on the on the W530, which should save money as well.

    2000M (W520) vs... K1000M (W530)

    Both have 192 cores, 2 GB of Ram, bandwidth, same memory, same version of OpenGL, shader model directX version PCI-E generation FP32 and Optimus.

    Differences: K1000M gives you DisplayPort 1.2 and the 2000M is only DisplayPort 1.1. TDP is less than 10W on the K1000M.

    See this pdf to more details.

    For graphics cards will perform more or less the same (W530 could be able to turbo graphics or more processor because of less PDT). You will benefit from the additional performance of the 3720? If so, then I'd go with the W530.

    I normally recommend Win 7 Home Premium and not Pro, since they both will come with a $14.99 to Win 8 Pro upgrade. I guess you want to stay on Win 7, at least until the 8 is on SP1, if not for the life of the machine. So Win7 Pro might be good for you, if you need functionality.

    You what you need to consider is: the processor in the W530 will benefit you more than the screen on the W520 and you prefer one keyboard on the other.

  • Advice needed on the installation of an operating system for my laptop

    I have a laptop which has 3 hard drives, my main 'C' drive Vista pre-installed and is almost full... I want to use the other 2 hard drives, local drive "D" and "F" of the data, how can I go about it?  Am I right in thinking that I must install an operating system on them, that is for Vista, and as it has been preloaded on my laptop, how do it on the other 2 drives?  I'm not at all in computing, and any advice would be welcome, because I really need to be able to make use of all this space!  As I have Vista already installed on my main drive and a product key (no), can be installed on the other 2?

    Thank you.

    If it won't let you follow the signs to extend your C: drive, contact the manufacturer of your laptop.

    I was watching the 'Special Edition' XPS 8700 - good price and specifications, but he offers victory 8.1 with a free upgrade to win10. Other 8700 XPS comes pre-installed with Win10, but the specs are not as attractive.

    I'm intimidated by the prospect, not to download and install win10 BUT what scares me, is that the drivers for the video and audio might get all screwed up in the process.

    Can you give me advice about what to choose?

    Thanks in advance,


    Hi Smiseel,

    If you like the specifications for the 8700 Special Edition, buy it. You have until July to free download Windows 10 next. You don't need to worry about installing drivers, you can come back to the forum and we will help you with it.

  • Advice needed on the upgrade of the OS

    Hello. I have an Inspiron 5759 running win 10 Home 64 bit...

    I have an ISO of Windows 10 education of Dreamspark.

    I'm in two minds and would appreciate some advice.

    Firstly, I would like to completely reformat the hard drive and perform a clean install of win 10 Education. The downside is:

    • I don't know what Dell has put on the partitions, I would lose some features? For example, Dell diag equipment?

    • I need to reinstall a lot of software.

    But my instincts tell me that this is the best way to go. Is it possible to keep the extra Dell of programs on other partitions?

    The alternative to a clean install is an upgrade, has anyone done this? What is your vision, update own vs?



    You can install the ISO of the education of 10 Windows. You can keep the Dell Diagnostics partition and delete the rest. Yes, you need to reinstall the software in the system. Also, you need to reinstall all drivers for the hardware as well.

    You can also watch the 2 versions of Windows 10 in dual-boot. May be easier for you with this option.

  • Advice needed for "Autorun at startup" setting

    Hey all,.

    Need some advice on how to do the following.

    I have my java application that updates daily image home screen with the image of Bing of the day. The user interface of the application has an option to activate this automatic function on and outside. At the exit of the app, it checks this parameter, and if it is turned on it starts a background thread that strives to update the home screen. (There is one application of work these features.) So no separate app works as the demon).

    The problem arises on resetting the device, there is nothing to start the demon, because which is managed out of the application. So, I need somehow set up the application so that when the system starts, it checks for this setting and if it is turned on it starts the background thread, otherwise does nothing.

    I hope I'm being clear. So immediately the "Autorun at startup" option in the file descriptor application jumped on me, but if I use it, what can I put in the application to check the value of the parameter, and where this start is handled? Or I think this bad situation?

    Thank you

    If you only want the interface user started, then you need from one door, with specified auto-start.  Just make sure that the BlackBerry is fully started before trying anything:


    And make sure that you start in the background.  Then by clicking on the icon will bring you app in the foreground.  You will need to make sure that when you close the app, instead of close, just put your application in the background.
