  • Help, I need to replace my hard drive in my hp pavilion a6863w how can I do this?

    The surface of the hard drive, test and get the test failed, a seagate 2 TB SSHD. I want to install it and I'm sure that I can do, but I need to know if I should leave the wrong disc in and just add this one, if I do this will it take all other cables, if yes, I'd rather just old-fashioned.
    I have the recovery install disks that I made when I bought first. I used these b4 to reinstall.

    I just need to know the steps if I add the 2nd disc or steps (if I need a cable) to replace the old disk with a new disk. This player would be my boot drive? When I ask for the steps, I'm more concerned about turning off the computer and what is it I have unplugged, etc.. Then once the new drive up, just run the recovery discs or y at - it an easier way?
    I tried to run a backup, but he stopped and wouldn't let me. I have all my important things like photo movies already saved etc.

Remove the old drive, replace it with a new one and use the set of recovery disks. Choose factory image recovery.

    Hi, I have "1720 smart hard drive detects imminent failure" made a backup, Gather I have to get another drive. How can I transfer my windows vista / files to new drive? Help, please.

    Hello

    There are different ways to do

    and these methods depend on your hard drive work

    hard drive manufacturers will normally provide the cloning to move your operating system software from the old to the new drive hard If your old hard drive still works

    Search for information on this subject on their Web site

    If you have vista business or ultimate, you can use the builtin vista complete PC Backup to move

    read the information below

    http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/tutorial145.html

    or if you have vista home version you'll need 3rd party software

    link below is an example of this:

    http://www.Acronis.com/homecomputing/products/TrueImage/index.html

    also to put your machine how you bought:

    1. If vista is preinstalled, you should have a recovery on your old hard drive partition

    You can recovery disks to reinstall on your new drive hard If the old drive still works

    ask the manufacturer of the machine how

    2. contact the computer manufacturer and ask them to send you to vista recovery disks to reinstall the operating system back as it was when you bought it

    they do it for a nominal cost of $

    3. or borrow a microsoft dvd vista

    Make sure that you borrow the correct 32-bit or 64-bit microsoft dvd to your computer

    they contain all versions of vista

    This is the product key that determines which version of vista is installed

  • How can I reset Windows Media Player to use songs on my external backup drive instead or in addition to the songs on my desktop with Windows Vista Edition basic hard drive family?

    How can I reset the Player Windows Media in Windows Vista Home Basic to use the songs on my external backup drive instead of (or in addition to) the songs on my desktop hard drive?  Currently, the Media Player library indicates that the hard drive (C:\) is my only option of disks to use for sources of songs.

    Basically, I want to have Media Player external drive for all the songs from research and build his library on this disc instead of on the C:\ drive.
    My problem is that the songs are hogging too much space on my hard drive, so I want to move to my external drive to backup instead, but Media Player will not access it.  I saw an option in Media Player to add a song to a different drive to the library whenever I play a song of this player, but that would require me to play all the songs moved one at a time, which is not practical, and which would not solve my problem because Media Player could still be maintaining the library on my HDD to say.
    Any ideas?
    Thank you.

    Hello

    See the steps in the following article on how to manage the music library.

    3. Select the Safe Mode option with the arrow keys.
    4. Then press enter on your keyboard to start mode without failure of Vista.
    5. To start Windows, you'll be a typical logon screen. Connect to your computer and Vista goes into safe mode.
    6. Do whatever tasks you need and when you are done, reboot to return to normal mode.

  • Reinstall Windows 7 on hard drive again with only the Win 7 Upgrade disc?

    So I have an e9180t which, like clockwork, freezes after about an hour or two after the boot.  I thought it might be the curse of bad mothers, with what they came, but I hope that it is something else so test everything I can.  I noticed that it does not freeze upwards when it is started in safe mode with network.  The hard drive failed the test SMART so I wonder if it's time to replace it as if that has anything to do with the crash.   I can move the cursor, but no applications will be open and eventually everything becomes insensitive causing be tohit the power button to restart.   I already stopped unnecessary startup programs and it will still freeze in unsafe mode.

    The PC came with Vista and I think it's what's on backup hard disk partition.  I have the disk Win 7 Upgrade from HP.  My questons are-

    1. If I buy a new HD 7 upgrade disc will be enough to install the full version of Win 7?

    2. anything else I should do when I install the new HD and more to reactivate Windows?

    Thank you.

    Hi Mike,.

    Have you created a HP recovery disk to reinstall the factory image when replacing the HARD drive?

    It sounds like you have maybe a problem creating the recovery discs now.

    A Smart HARD drive test failure points to a HDD failure. The symptoms you are experiencing are likely caused by this fact. You can also have a card mother or any other hardware problem.

    You have the key to drive and Win 7 Upgrade product.

    I'm pretty sure that the upgrade to Windows 7 to be launched from Win Vista. The upgrade of Windows 7 is a full installation of Windows, so this isn't the problem. But he can't run the installation unless you start the upgrade in Win Vista. Normally, an upgrade to Windows 7 is launched within the current operating system, Win 7 valid existence of an eligible OS Setup and then request a restart to complete the installation of upgrade.

    You can replace the HARD drive and try to install Win 7 itself. If this fails and you do not have the Vista recovery discs, you can buy an HP recovery disc set here. There are three different versions. Select one that corresponds to the operating system that is installed at the factory.

    You may have another problem to replace the HDD with a Format HDD advanced most recent. Please see thisHP Supportdocument for more information.

    If you cannot install the upgrade Windows 7 itself or Win Vista because of the issue of the Advanced Format HARD drive, you may need to purchase a copy of Windows 7 OEM.

  • HARD DRIVE FULL! .... CAN'T FIND WHY?

    I got a new laptop turned off a friend for Christmas. He said that he cleaned everything, but after the transfer of some files from my old hard drive, photos and music for a total of 5 GB, I noticed the hard drive had used 81 GB. I searched all although the files looking for a reason why so much space had been used and I couldn't find anything either. not even installed programs came close to that kind of room. Is there something that I can have over looked or a way I can list each file and look at the sizes? or just something coz the thing is close to being complete and I only just got the thing.

    Thank you

  • HP SimpleSave 500 GB external hard drive is identified however the data is not displayed

    Hi, I have a HP SimpleSave 500 GB external hard drive. Till a month back I had copied, files, documents, mp3 etc in this player. And a few weeks back when I plugged it to recover some data on this subject, I was unable to see any folder in which I had copied the same. In the properties it shows to me that about 120 GB is used, which some how make sure that data are on it, however, due to an unexplained error, I am unable to see. Any help will be appreciated.

    Hi TinmanSav,

    Follow the suggestions below for a possible solution:

    Method 1: Run the hardware and devices Troubleshooter and see if it makes a difference.

    Open the hardware and devices Troubleshooter

    http://Windows.Microsoft.com/en-us/Windows7/open-the-hardware-and-devices-Troubleshooter

    Method 2: I suggest you disable and re-enable the USB controller and check.

    Use Device Manager to disable and re-enable all the USB controllers. This allows controllers to recover the port USB of his condition does not respond. USB controllers represent the USB ports in Device Manager.

    To disable and re-enable the USB controllers, follow these steps:

    a. click Start, type "Device Manager" in the start search box and press ENTER.

    b. Expand Universal Serial Bus of controllers.

    Note: You need to scroll the list to find this point.

    c. right-click on the first USB controller under Bus USB controllersand then click Uninstall to remove it.

    d. Repeat steps above for each controller USB is listed under Bus USB controllers.

    e. restart the computer. After the computer starts, Windows will automatically check for changes on the hardware and reinstall all USB controllers that you uninstalled.

    f. check the USB device to see if it works.

    Method 3: Check if the external hard drive is recognized in disk management and assign a drive letter to the same.

    To open disk management, follow these steps:

    ·         Click Start, type disk management in the start search box and press enter.

    If the drive is detected in disk management, I suggest you to assign a drive letter and see if that does the trick.

    For instructions, see this article:

    Change, add, or remove a drive letter

  • Toshiba USB external hard drive 250GB shows only the red light - sound of rattling

    My USB HD external drive to Toshiba aged 16 months stopped working yesterday. It shows just a flashing red light
    and makes a slight clicking noise. Of course, we cannot guarantee any more. But all my backups are on this drive,
    This means almost 10 years of work destroyed if I cannot access this disc more. Someone knows what to do to fix
    This problem?

    Post edited by: admin

    I put t know what the flashing red LED could mean, but it looks like a HARD disk head crash. Perhaps you could find some details in the user manual that the flashing light means.

    However, he still stupid s cases of dysfunction of a backup media situation. I had a similar problem with my 2.5 100 GB USB HDD. After about 3 years of work, the HARD drive died and I was not able to access the HARD disk. I was a lucky man because I have backup my data also on the DVD so I was able to restore the files and data.

    What to say maybe s possible to save data, but professional help would be necessary. Maybe you should contact technicians for assistance.

    Best regards and good luck buddy

  • I have win xp SP3 installed on my PC. I use several external hard drives to store video files. How can I make sure that they maintain the same drive letter, every time that I connect them?

    All these hard disks are connected via the USB ports, but not all of them are connected at the same time. I use Adobe first Elements to edit videos, & if I open an adobe project it is expected that the video files will always be under the same drive letter.

    Have you tried to assign drive letters using disk management?
    Mount your drive, then

    Start-> Run-> "diskmgmt.msc".

    Find your player in the list, right-click on it and select "change drive letter and paths...". »
