Error loading operating system amessage appear on toshiba satellite A15-S127 and operating system cd on dvd and it didn't boat from dvd what can i do? or how can i enter setup

So you have a potential problem with the hard drive and a known problem with the optical drive. Replace the optical drive first: it's easy (one screw at the bottom, another one underneath the keyboard - these are the only 2 screws holding the optical drive in). You can buy a replacement drive, new or used, on eBay for $10 - $20 delivered. After that, you should be able to figure out if the hard drive's problems are OS related or HW failure. HDD's are cheap, too. This model uses 2.5" ATA IDE drive (30 or 40G or you can go larger), figure 50 cents to 75 cents per gigabyte, and you'll be okay. Just don't pay tourist prices for these things....

What the highest hard drive i can put in my dell latitude d610 which has a 40g hard drive already. i what the hd hard drive. what do you suggest.

ANY 40 pin IDE 2.5 drive will work. I think the biggest one they make is 500gb. If I were you I would take my old drive with me to wherever you buy the new one to make sure you get the right drive.

Hope this info helps ;)

Upgrade my Dell Dimension 4400 Service Tag 43L5811

You can upgrade to practically the maximum available amount of harddrive space as long as the new drive is IDE. The following picture shows the drive you require:


A guide to replace a hard disk for this PC is available here.

As a rule of thumb, you should buy the maximum size hard disk you can afford as it improves the performance.

You can choose from any brand but choose the one with maximum warranty.

PS. There is no need to go into any kind of numbers; just ask the vendor to give you a certain size IDE hard drive eg a 250GB Western Digital IDE hard drive.

Cloned full small drive to large drive now both full

You might have the option of Defragmenting it as some files might be unorganised and also by freeing some space on thee disk by simply some files and data which yo don't need or might have cloned themselves repeatedly, that is Duplication of a same file or data and/or multiple amount of files.And if you think that you simply don't need the files then in that case simply format it in the respective file system whichever might be compatible,say,cdfs,FAT32,NTFS, and so on.

Headphone socket broken on archos 704

Depends if the circuit board is damaged. If not and competent technicial should be able to repace the socket. If the board is damaged it will need replacing, unfortunatley this is coded to the hard drive so it is only possible if it is performed by Archos

Adding a new hard drive

It is possible that your hard drive is not S.M.A.R.T. capable, which simply means that you most likely wont be forewarned when your hard drive is about to fail. To prevent this S.M.A.R.T. message, check in your CMOS setup(by pressing DEL usually) when your PC starts up. Go through the list of BIOS settings until you find a setting to enable/disable S.M.A.R.T for hard drives. This is most likely enabled for your board. If so, disable the S.M.A.R.T. feature, then save these settings and restart your pc.
For any clarification or further assistance, please don't hesitate to post another message.
Hope this sorts your problem.
