Hi. How to find files/Doc was format in HP Pavilion dv6


This kind of problem sometimes happens if the operating system files to start up on your laptop hard drive get corrupted. See if you can find instructions on youtube to take the hard drive out of your laptop, or see if there is a screw that holds it in your laptop. You will need to purchase a USB to IDE/SATA cable adapter to connect your laptop hard drive to another, working computer. Once the screw is out, and you remove the laptop hard drive, then plug one cable (IDE/SATA) into your hard drive, and the other end (USB) to the second computer that is working. You will also need to connect a power cable from your laptop hard drive to a separate power supply that comes in the USB to IDE/SATA cable kit. When the cables are connected, if your hard drive is usable, you should be able to see all the files from your laptop hard drive on the second computer. Now, you can copy them off before reinstalling your operating system/formatting your original laptop hard drive.

We have 2 Acer laptops. The screen on one is broken. Can we coonect the two by a USB cable so that we can transferr files from the broken laptop to the good one?


The bset way to do this is to have a switch or router, and connect them by network and transfer all your needed files.

the only problem you might have is, file sharing, meaning if the files you want is readily shared, but there is a way to do that. First try to borrow a montor or LCD screen and connect to the broken-screened LAptop, and try to share the files to network.
One more easier way to fo this is to install a monitor on the broken-screend one, install a USB external hard drive on it and then copy all the files you want. After copying thet, install the USB Hard drive on your perfectly working laptop and copy the files. This procedure is more easier than what you have in mind, cheaper too, because you can always just borrow a USB Hard drive or flash drive. Even a small capacity flash drive would do, it just takes more times of plug and unplug because of the capacity issue.
Hope this helps and Thank You for using Fixya.

Hi,\r\n When i plug in my Western Hard Disk WD4000ME, its detected by the system and all files are shown, but I cannot copy those files back to the system. It gives the following error:- "The requst could...


An I/O error indicates an issue with the device driver(s) that handle input/output processes such as copying files to/from hard drives, data in resident memory (RAM) waiting to be processed by the CPU or the controller chipset that handles the primary calls to/from the subsystems or a faulty hard drive.
Below are a few solutions that may help resolve the issue and allow you to transfer your files:
Before proceeding, you will need the following:
A. Computer B. External USB Hard Drive C. USB Cable D. RAM Module (Replacement, if necessary) E. Hard Drive (Replacement, if necessary) F. USB Hard Drive Enclosure (Replacement, if necessary) G. USB Cable (Replacement, if necessary)
Note: Solutions B/C apply only to Windows OS.
Solution A. Faulty USB Cable
1. Replace the USB cable. 2. Connect USB hard drive to the computer. 3. Attempt to copy a file from the drive. 4. If successful, copy additional files, as needed. If not successful, skip down to Solution B, step #1.

Solution B. Locked I/O Processes
1. Press and hold the power button on your desktop/laptop for about 10 seconds (or until the system has powered off completely). Then release the power button. 2. Make sure the USB drive is plugged in. 3. Wait another 10 seconds and press the button once again to power on the computer. 4. Once logged in, attempt to copy a single file from the drive 5. If successful, go to step #6. If not successful, skip down to Solution C, step #1. 6. Continue to copy files from the drive. Make sure to pay attention to what files (if any) prompt the I/O error message. If you receive an I/O error, skip down to Solution C, step #1.

Solution C. Motherboard Device Driver Installation/Update
1. Click on the "Start" menu and click on "Control Panel". 2. A new window will open, double-click on "System". 3. A new window will open, click on "Device Manager". 4. A new window will open, listed in the hierarchy are all the hardware components installed on the desktop/laptop. Look for any devices that display either a red "X", yellow "!" or yellow "?". These devices have either incorrect, incomplete or missing drivers/software and need to be installed, as they might be the root cause of the trouble. 5. If any of the above icons are present, perform a Windows Update by visiting the site below:
http://update.microsoft.com
Perform any updates available on the software and hardware side. 6. Restart your computer. 7. Follow Solution C, steps #1-4 to determine if any drivers still need updates. 8a. If updates are not needed, attempt to copy files from the hard drive. If successful, go to step #9. If not successful, skip down to Solution D, step #1. 8b. If updates are needed, you may need to visit the support site for your desktop/laptop's make/model and download any missing drivers. 9. Continue copying files, as needed.

Solution D. Faulty RAM
1. Power off the desktop/laptop and disconnect all cables. 2. Open the desktop/laptop. 3. Remove all the existing RAM. 4. Install the replacement RAM. 5. Power on the desktop/laptop. 6. Connect USB hard drive. 7. Test by copying some files from your hard drive. 8. If successful, close your desktop/laptop and continue copying files, as needed. If not successful, remove replacement RAM and reinstall previous RAM and skip down to Solution E, step #1.

Solution E. USB Hard Drive Case Faulty I/O Board
1. Power off computer/desktop and disconnect all cables. 2. Open your USB external case. 3. Remove your existing hard drive. 4. Install hard drive into replacement USB case. 5. Power on your computer. 6. Connect your USB external drive. 7. Copy files from your external USB hard drive. 8. If successful, continue to copy files, as needed. If not successful, skip down to Solution F, step #1.

F. Hard Drive Malfunction
1. Power off computer/desktop and disconnect all cables. 2. Open your USB external case. 3. Remove your existing hard drive. 4. Install replacement hard drive into USB case. 5. Power on your computer. 6. Connect your USB external drive. 7. Copy files from your external USB hard drive. 8. If successful, continue to copy files, as needed. If not successful, this could be an indiction of a much larger problem in the form of a Motherboard issue.
If the motherboard is malfunctioning, this is a sign of bigger things to come and will require a replacement board in order to correct.
In the event that the motherboard needs replacement, depending on the make/model of the desktop/laptop, the cost could range from $35-120 for 3rd-party boards or $85-300+ for consumer-level systems from manufacturers such as HP, Dell, etc. and $350-1000 from Apple.
If your desktop/laptop is still covered by the manufacturer's warranty or 3rd-party extended warranty, any hardware component that needs replacement should be covered at little to no out of pocket expense to the end-user. This also includes the external USB hard drive, as well.

Laptop wont start up


Best thing to do, take the hard drive out of the laptop and hook it up to a computer that has the SATA connections in it.

Make sure you have a flash drive and then you can transfer any files you want from the hard drive to the flash drive.

Then go ahead after your done with that, hook the hard drive back into the laptop and then you can install the operating system and then go to the packard bell website for the drivers.

Using cruser micros usb to burn a cd


Yes you can burn a CD picking files directly from an external USB unit, providing that you have a computer with CD rewriter.

However it is always better to copy all drivers from flash memory into the internal hard drive, and then burn the CD from files copied into the HD.
This because the Cruser flash driver has a longer data access time respect to the hard disk.

If your computer is good enough it should work either way.
