To access the contents of hard disks T61 without a laptop.


The motherboard of my T61 had spoiled.

I would like to know if there is a way to access the content of hard drives without another laptop because I don't know what laptop would be compatible and access to one if there is one.

I read somewhere that I could use a USB OR SATA hard drive enclosure / adapter IDE... but I'm not sure if it is the right and the only options available.

Please notify.

Help much appreciated.



or the other works perfectly, the only drivers will be a problem if you install it as a main player in many a laptop different, in which case some of the laptops hardware may not work until you update the drivers.

    Can you please explain this? It is unclear to me.

    But if the disc external HARD only on a laptop computer does not contact the other laptop manufacturing. Maybe the chipset driver needs to be updated or it s mainboard issue.

    As floh_1 said, you can try another cable. It s worth a try! ;)

  • Our AppleTV alcoholic, if we opt for a movie / TV that was bought, we get the notice that it is "impossible to load the content. You need to restart completely to access the content you've purchased.

    We have the AppleTV (4th Gen, 64 GB). Whenever we 'wake up' the AppleTV from sleep, we are unable to access all our content purchased until we start the system. We have never had this problem until a few weeks ago. All software is up-to-date and automatically update, internet is very good, and nothing has changed since we have implemented the AppleTV. Frustrating to not be able to access the content that we have already purchased without jumping through hoops.


    I met this time. All I did was to completely close the application TV Shows and reopened. It worked after that without needing a reboot.

    In Windows 7, you can get a lot of details by selecting Start, all programs, accessories, System Tools, system information, components, storage disks. It was very similar to Windows XP, but for all information users tend to use Everest or Belarc Advisor for additional information not available. Everest has been best Bellarc advice but they ceased to offer tan updated free version. However, the 2.20 version is always available from third-party sites.

  • Windows Boot Manager, I want to change the Configuration of hard disk

    I have a computer with two former 500 GB Hard Drives.  The "Legacy" operating system is installed on the first physical hard disk in the system and Windows 7 is installed on the second physical hard disk, they are the identical WD drives.  I bought a new Seagate Barracuda 1000 GB drive, I want to use in place of the mark.

    So currently I have:

    SATA-0, score 0: Legacy 500 GB OS

    SATA-5, score 0: 500 GB Windows 7

    With the new player, I want to:

    SATA-0, score 0: Legacy 500 GB OS

    SATA-0, Partition 1: 500 GB Windows 7

    I have disk imaging software, able to copy both disks to the new partitions on the new disk.  What I want to know is how can ensure me that I continue to get the start menu to see the two operating systems.

    Of course, I will still have the old hard disks available, and I can always put them in.  It's just that the cloning process takes a long time, and I would like to have my procedure in advance.  The first time I have start the system with the 1 TB drive, it will not be a disk of 500 Go SATA-5, score 0: in the computer.  I don't know which files must be modified to search for Windows 7 in the new location.

    I shouldn't need to do a reinstall of windows.  I think I found the answer to what I was looking elsewhere.

    I remember that two years ago, when I set up the Dual boot system, I followed these instructions:

    When I did, I had a dual boot menu:

    -Old Version of Windows

    -Windows 7 Professional

    Of course I meant "Windows XP" rather than "earlier Version of Windows.  I searched and found that a tool exists to modify this menu.  I don't remember what they called the tool when I presented this request.  I was pretty sure that the tool would allow me to have the change of start menu where he sought the installation of Windows7.

    Today, I found the name of the tool, it is called BCDEDIT. EXE.  It allows you to safely edit the menu file, and startup locations resemble the old file boot.ini of Windows NT days.  Here's what the tool then generates on the command line.

    Windows Boot Manager
    identifier {bootmgr}
    Device partition = D:

  • Using the service 'Release hard disk': some pictures of stay in "Update the Photos to reissue", even if I publish it


    First of all please excuse my bad English. [I am french :-)]

    I have 2 different problems with pictures in smart albums used in a service of "Publish on hard drive" [Publication of the Service of hard disk] :

    -some of them stay in the section "Updating the Photos to republish" ['Changed to republish photos'] even when I publish it. The published photo is created and saved on my hard drive, but the picture goes to the section "Published photos" [published Photos by] for a second and then go back to the section "update the Photos to republish. To move back then in 'Published Photo', I need to use the "mark as up to date" [mark as updated] option in the right click menu.

    d ' other hand, some ot them (maybe the same) are still stuck in the section 'photos Publised' even if I do some changes (adding keyword, change some options of development...).

    Can I have some help please?

  • Impossible to access the contents of a window (PopUp)


    I'm trying to access the contents of a MovieClip I placed inside a PopUpWindow component, but cannot figure out how to do this. I've created the window with something like this:
    var SAedit_win:MovieClip = mx.managers.PopUpManager.createPopUp (_root, window, true, {closeButton:true, title: "Arterias Sistemicas", contentPath: "contentSA"});

    With this code, the window IS correctly created and the "contentSA" MovieClip (which is in the library) is properly indicated. However, I wanted to access the objects inside the "contentSA', but I can't find a way to do it. I have already tried:
    -SAedit_win.content (which is read-only...)
    -SAedit_win.contentsPath (which of course did not)

    Can someone help me with that please?

    Tanks in advance


    Well, I give up. I looked everywhere on the net and found out that I'm not the only one. It is a not uncommon problem, but I think he has no answer, because all the forum posts I found unanswered.

  • Unable to restore the system, possible hard disk problems

    I started to have a white screen on startup and could not go beyond the apple logo. I ran the recommended repairs but could not manage to detect the operating system if the recovery console could see everything fine. The console suggested a repair disk I ran, but it seems to fail and goes to a blank gray screen.

    I pulled the drive and back up the contents of my PC and noticed them were three partitions showing in this regard. There was no problem of backup files as well so it seems that the drive is ok. After plugging it back in I tried internet recovery option and it only detects the HD recovery. I tried to erase disk02 but it does not work as well. I also use the restore option, but this also fails. I'm more used to the windows system restore and I'm not sure just what I might be missing.

    I have attached the photos on what I see, so hopefully that will help.

    Enter the Recovery > disk utility. Select 1 TB HD Apple ST *, and then click Delete. Then click the Partition tab use arrow on the "Current" bar and select 1 Partition. Below you see a + sign or Options and will make this is the Table of Partition GUID. You will be he title Macintosh HD and Mac OS extended (journaled) and then click on apply. Now, you'll see Macintosh HD instead of the disk 0 sec 2. Select Macintosh HD, and then click Delete. Now, you erase Macintosh HD. It should be GUID Partition Table Mac OS extended (journaled). You should be able to put it in to your Mac you install El Capitan. Hope this helps you.

    Seems that drive HARD recovery does not work.
    Perhaps something has changed on the recovery of HARD drive partition or recovery files has been deleted

    Usually it s always advisable to create a recovery disk in a first time. This should be done at the beginning and this recovery disk is always useful if something would go wrong with drive recovery HARD or with HARD drive

    Now, you can't get the phone because you don t have this drive and the HARD drive does not work

    What to do?
    Well, I think that you would need new control disc.
