hard drive does not operate


1, switch off computer
2. remove side (usually two screws on the back held it)
3. remove and then re-insert power cable from hdd
4. remove and re-insert data cable, from hdd as well as from m/b
5. start computer and hold your fingers on the top of the affected hdd, if you feel vibrations, this meant that driver is spinning and therefore rescue can be attempted at home.
6. research and purchase hdd recovery software, follow it's instruction and save data on another medium, be it another hdd or cd's dvd's.

if there is no spin, recovery is still possible but in specialist lab and will cost more money....

always back-up your data, second hdd is much cheaper than data recovery from existing one...

1. Turn off the water source to the washing machine.
2. Unscrew the hose from the back of the washing machine.
3. With a pair of pliers, gently pull out the mesh filter from the end of the hose and rinse it under water until clean. Also clean the inside and outside of the threaded connector.
4. Push the filter back into place.
5. Screw the hose back onto the washing machine.

  1. Reset the projector to factory defaults,Change sources. Try plugging the projector into another computer.If the color problem persists, check the cables for bent or broken pins. If any pins are damaged, the cable will need to be replaced with an InFocus-approved cable.
  2. Upgrade the projector firmware. If the projector still will not display the image, it is possible that there is an internal problem that requires repair.
