Try going to start then control panel then administrative tools, After that go to computer managerment then disk management if you do not see it there the HDD is shot as it cannot be detected by the computer.

How do I get picture back on TV which was working the night before, which is hooked up to HD cable box, thru HDMI?

OS info is always helpful, if say you are running some type of nix, it's likely not getting recognized by xserver or if your running some version of windows your display manager has shut it down because of a resolution mismatch.

I'm repairing laptops for eight years and this problem has something to do either with the HDD or your RAM. If you have two modules of RAM try either of the two if it will pose the same problem. If not definitely the culprit is your HDD. It doesn't matter if it is brand new that it will work perfectly. They are transported and we don't know how they were handled.

Hello, I have Asus f5z, video card is ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3200. Original Windows Vista, automatic updates always On. And suddenly began go error, screen blinks, and shows "ati stopped responding...

This could either be a problem with the graphics driver, or a problem with the graphics card itself.

Try once more downloading the latest version of the driver from here: and installing it while your computer is running without the graphics driver turned on. Then try re-enabling the graphics driver to see if the updated driver solved the problem.

If updating the driver doesn't work, it's almost certainly a problem with the laptop's video card. If this is the case, you'll want to have it looked at by a professional, or contact Asus support directly to see if they can help you resolve the issue.

Hope this is helpful!

My compaq presario cq60 is starting wee but not showing display.....

Try plugging into an external display to make sure your laptop is fine in the first place. An external display (VGA, HDMI, DVI) should show right from the boot. It may flicker on and off from normal screen to black but should stay stable once it is booted up all the way.

If it does work you should just be able to let it boot up and then (after COMPLETELY loading) simply remove the external device and your screen should work within seconds. Should this not be the case i would be happy to assist you in narrowing down the problem and trying to find a solution. =)

Should this fail to work you may want to resort immediately to taking your laptop to a repair service or a cheap local PC specialist (as it would be very difficult to repair drivers and such if you cannot see anything in the first place, and even your local PC guru is likely to have hardware unavailable to you.)

Dv9700 HP Notebook PC: DigitalPersona Personal 3.0.0 "The fingerprint reader is not detected"

I found this on another site and it worked for me!

"Ihad the same thing happen, and determined that you have to go back toan earlier version of the Authentec driver to make it work. I tried 4versions and the only one that works with DigitalPersona is,dated 2007-08-28. You can find it on the HP Website. It appears to beavailable in a number of Softpaqs, such as sp37815.exe, sp37812.exe andsp37920.exe. Maybe these different versions are meant for differentmodels, but they appear to be the same driver. There is a brand newdriver available from Windows Update, but it doesn't work. I hope thisworks for you.

To fix this issue go to device manager, then under personal identification devices, right click on the authentec fingerprint reader.

click on the driver tab, and click the roll back driver button...should fix the problem for you...I also tried EVERYTHING you guys mention but to no avail....this works!!!

Does it display a drive letter? If not right click it then assign a drive letter.
If after you set a drive letter then it should be accessible.

if still after this the same problem exists then you must use a recovery program to recover the files on the drive as the drive most likely is corrupt and defectivce.
