When you plugged it into Windows, it was formatted as a a FAT32. when your friend plugged it into his Mac, it was reformatted as a non-FAT32. You will have to reformat your player, which will end up erasing all of your songs:
WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.

Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself:
Connect your Mp3 player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.

I want to install windows vista by dell to my laptop will it work?

You can if you have regular Windows Vista disk, do not use Dell installation cd. (borrow from a friend or ask in your local comp. store if they can make you a bootable copy)
Use Vista key from the sticker on the dell computer. Make sure after install you put all the Vista drivers for the Toshiba so everything works ok.

Non display for Dell Optiplex GX110?

Either your monitor is bad or the video card inside the computer is bad. To isolate the problem try a different monitor on the computer. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker. If the borrowed monitor works, then your original monitor is bad. If the Borrowed monitor does not work, then the video card inside your computer is bad.

I would recommend checking the batteries make sure that they aren't dead. If the batteries aren't dead and you are still having trouble might just be a defective one. I personally love mine. I have a dell E310 with win xp and it works great. I just download the songs onto my computer. Then plug the usb wire into the computer and move the songs to the K drive is what mine comes up.. For a shortcut once you see the drive appear you can create a shortcut to the drive by dropping the drive to the desktop. So it is alot easier to move the songs onto the drive. I simply just drag the song over the shortcut I created and it goes directly on. Just make sure that when you are finished adding all the songs, you click the scissors (safely remove hardware icon) on the bottom right of the taskbar and click stop for that drive, or else the songs you put on won't save. Once it says you are free to remove the drive simply unplug usb. Then plug in your earpiece and hit play on mp3. You should hear the song.

I use limewire to get my songs, but whatever site you use should be fine.

Cant load songs

the best way for that is to read your manual.

Windows XP SP1
Windows Media Player 10
Intel Pentium class PC or higher
CD-ROM drive
USB 2.0 port required for hi-speed transfer
Connect to your Computer
1. Connect the small USB Cable Connector to the USB port on your computer, and then plug the larger
Cable Dock Connector in to your Sansa c200 port.
2. Once connected to computer, it should be detected by the operating system automatically and is
shown as an additional drive called “Sansa c200”.
You will need to use Sansa Media Converter to transfer photos to your Sansa c200. Insert your SanDisk
CD and select Sansa Media Converter to install it to your PC. Then you can load your personal photos
onto your Sansa c200 by using Sansa Media Converter.

To transfer music to your Sansa c200:
1. Connect Sansa c200 to the computer.
2. Drag and drop files from your computer to Sansa c200 by using a variety of music software
programs to transfer/synchronize your files.
3. In MTP mode as long as the files are WMA or MP3, they can be dragged into the Media folder.
Otherwise, they can be dragged into the Data folder (these files will not appear on the player).
4. In MSC mode, files/folders can be dragged/copied to the device.

Only half of my music shows on a computer while the other half shows on another.

install winamp on your friends computer and see if they show up.
