How do you get the cover off?

I have another drive (d) in my computer that I have all my music on. It just disappeared when I go to my computer. I was going to take off the cover to see if maybe it came unplugged. I also need to clean the inside real good, it's awfully dusty.

Most dell workstations have a hinged lid on them. There accessible from the back of the unit. Either by latch or by a philips screwdriver.

Check the cable in there and see if its good. Swap out the power cable if that doesn't work. Could be faulty.

Try to get the dust out ot the power supply.

I have an hp pavilion a350n,need to get a best hard drive for it.I'm a crazy for music...downlow and play


Your computer will only accept ATA hard drives according to the web site. When looking at hard drives make the drive IDE ATA and not the newer SATA drives. You can also speed up your computer by maximizing your RAM Memory. Your user manual covers all this. You can also access the computer specs and upgrade possibilities at their web site.

Desktop icons is disappeared


The most-common cause is a computer-virus that DELIBERATELY has "hidden" those icons.

Take your computer to a computer-store, and get them to remove the disk-drive from your computer, attach it as a "slave" disk-drive in one of their computers, and then run a "deep" virus-scan of your disk-drive, to "clean" your files.

I dont know how to add songs to a folder in my computer


Click on "My Computer", select C drive then File "New Folder" then type in a title for the folder such as "My Music" then when ever you download tell the download site to download to this folder. This will make it so you can easily find your music folders. If you have the music on a Cd then open "My computer" select the drive with the Cd icon by right clicking on it and then selecting "explore" this will give you access to all the music files on the drive. Click on one of the files to select it, as indicated by a solid color change, then hold down the "shift" key on your keyboard and press the "down" arrow to select the rest of the files, then click "edit" "copy" then go back to My Computer and select the "C" drive and highlight the new "My Music" file and then click "edit" and "paste". This is just one method, a harder one in some ways, to copy files from a disc to the hard drive. From here you have the source of all the files for your "you tube slide show"

DVD DRIVE DISAPPEARS


does it just disappear on its own? Or is it possible that its disappearing after you plug in other USB devices and the driver letter gets nabbed? Or if you're in a office with network drives they could be taking the driver letter.

Computer won't start up!


Waiting for 10 or 15 or even 30 minutes doesn't make much sense to me. What kind of flash drive or drives do you use? .. USB Thumb/Pen/Flash drive? .. If your flash drives in "My Computer" folder just happen to disappear, does the computer still working or freezed state? When you say your computer does not want to start on AT ALL.' the machine is not running at all or just that the operating system is not booting up?
