When i am going to boot my pc through usb (window 7 ultimate) it show disk read error.....


I can think of three likely problems and one unlikely problem.
1. Did you really burn the ISO image to the pen drive? Did you use software such as freeisoburner: http://www.freeisoburner.com/to burn the ISO to the drive or did you just copy the ISO to the drive? If you just copied it, then the computer can't read the files
2. The USB drive may be broken. Have you tried burning the ISO to another flash drive or disk?
3. The copy of windows you downloaded wasn't the whole thing and there are missing files that once again, the computer can't read or find
4. Your USB ports on the computer is broken.

I want to download all info from my desktop and motherboard into mylaptop


Hi Eva!


If your desktop is crashed, then you will need to verify if its internal hard drive is still working, and then conect it using an USB/SATA/IDE adapter to your Laptop. This is one: http://www.sataadapter.com/SATA-IDE-ATA-66-ATA-100-ATA-133-COMBO-ADAPTER/sata-ide-adapter-usb-hard-drive-sata-drive.html

If the problem with your desktop is with its hard drive, then... you need to take your computer to its manufacturer technnical service center.

I have an HP765 pavilion with a burnt out power supply. I have alot of information on the hard drive. What specific parts would I need to remove and what are my possible choices for data transfer besides...


If you are certain that it is only your power supply, you should be able to replace the power supply and the Pavilion should work again.

On the other hand, you can hook the hard drive up to another functioning desktop PC, use the jumpers on the hard disk and make it a slave drive, so that it will not conflict with the HD that boots the computer.

Once it boots up, try to access the slave drive and, if you have room on the primary drive, copy your valuable data to your C drive. If you don't have the room, if you can burn DVDs or CDs, then copy the data and burn it to a series of DVDs or CDs, but it will take a load of CDs.

Then there is the option of - still as a slave drive - buying a 64 GB jump drive, or an external HD with a load of space, like an IOMEGA with a Terrabyte of space, and copying the valuable data from the slave drive to the Huge External HD, over a USB cable.

Clearly, USB will be a slow process, but it is a solid connection, and safe, and should allow you to copy and save all your valuable data to the external HD which gives you the additional option of being able to attach it to anything else with a USB connector, making all that valuable data portable.

When done, you just remove that slave drive, and put the desktop back to the way it was.

Good luck!

ACER Aspire L100 Desktop is dead?


If the hard drive is OK then you can remove the hard drive from the desktop case, and insert the hard drive into a USB 3 1/2" hard drive adapter case, this should come with a power adapter. These are available at your friendly computer shop.
Boot up the laptop then plug this USB hard drive adapter into the laptop's USB port. The laptop will see this as an external USB hard drive. You can open the various folders and files on this external drive and copy the folders and files to the laptop.
You can delete the Windows folder and Program Folders on this external drive to free up disk space and use this as a back up drive etc.
If you are not sure how to remove the hard drive and install it into an USB hard disk case, then I suggest you get a computer savy friend to help you.

Need to know how to transfer programs and files from old to new PC


There are three sets of items that you need to transfer.
It would be best to use an external USB drive and keep the data on the drive as a backup.

1. Settings (Internet favorites, desktop settings, cookies, address book, etc.)
2. Data (My Documents, and multimedia content)
3. Programs

It would be easy if the old computer was also a Dell; however, you can't simply "copy" to the new computer.

#1. Settings: There is a built-in utility called "Files and Settings Transfer Wizard". [Start] [All Programs] [Accessories] [System Tools] [Files and Settings Transfer Wizard]

#2. The transfer wizard has an option to copy "settings only", "Data Only", Settings and Data". Transfer only the settings and then transfer the data. It will go much smoother.

#3. Some programs are already on your new computer; however, unless the old computer was also a Dell, you will have to re-install most or all of your programs like MS Office, Printers, Scanners, Camera and Video applications, etc.

If you need more detail, please post a comment... Thanks .

Im trying to download info from my security cameras to the usb because i need to burn it unto a disc to give to authorities for their files.


You will need to copy the files to your hard drive and then copy them to you USB drive. You did not tell me what kind of connection that you have from your Security to copy the files to your computer. You will have to ask the security camera people what you need for that, if you do not know. Are you using a security camera that hooks to your computer constantly? If so the files will already be on your hard drive in a folder that the software has for it. Are you sure that it recorded the things that you saw or needed seen? This should have been set up by a security company. If you did it yourself, you are the only person that knows how you set it up. It is hard to answer this question with a direct answer.
