Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition

1 Answer

Windows vista Hi, Recently whenever I boot up my laptop the 'safely remove hardware' icon appears in the notification area and if I go into it I am given a message that it is safe to remove the internal wireless card. The wireless card seems to work fine but obviously I don't want Vista telling me its safe to remove the thing in case I do by accident when removing say my usb memory stick. I have also noticed that when I switch off the wireless card using the switch on the front of the laptop a bubble also appears telling me its safe for me to remove the wireless card. Can anyone please tell me how to remove the wireless card from the sfaely remove hardware list. I dont want to hide or diable the safely remove hardware tool as I often use it for memory sticks etc. The computer is a vye s37 and up unitl recently it has never done this. Obviously the software for the card is what Vye put on when new. I have tried system restore but the restore points don't go back far enough to a point when I can get things working as they should be. Thanks in advance

How Do I Safely Remove Hardware

First off, some of those icons will never be removed, as they are necessary to be there for verification purposes. Safely Remove Hardware is one of them. Any time you plug in a device such as a flash card or external hard drive, devices that read and write data, they show up in this block. Since Windows does delayed writes to save time,l if you simply unplug these devices without letting Windows close out the write cache may cause corrupted files. Right clicking on the Safely Remove Hardware icon will cause a listing of attached devices to be displayed. Clicking on the device you want to remove (unplug) will tell Windows to close out the file cache and dismount the device. Windows will do this and them notify you that the device is safe to remove.

Now, regarding all those other icons that appear,such as OneDrive, volume control, and others, if you don't want them showing up in the taskbar, you can right click on the "^" caret symbol that expands the taskbar, then choose SETTINGS. This will bring up the taskbar settings menu. Scroll down the page to where is says "Select which icons appear on the taskbar" and select that. You will see a long list of possible taskbar icons. Turn off the ones you don't want to see display on the taskbar. This does not remove them from the system, but they will no longer display on the taskbar,

My safe to remove icon has dissappeared how can re install it please

Which operating system ?????????

The system tray in Windows XP is the right side of the small blue bar at the bottom of the screen that houses the clock and a few other small icons. You can add icons to the system tray for ease of access, including the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon, which allows you to easily remove hardware from your computer.

Turn on the Windows XP computer and right-click the taskbar. Select "Properties" from the menu that appears. Check "Hide Inactive Icons", then select "Customize" A new window appears with all of the icons currently on the system tray, along with icons also for some programs that don't appear on the tray. Click next to the icon "Safely Remove Hardware," then check the box "Always Show". Click "Apply". Safely Remove Hardware Icon?

How do I safely turn off my Verbatim hardrive when I shutdown my laptop that it is attached to.

In the notification area you will see an icon with the Safely Remove hardware label - click on it; a small window will appear listing the devices connected to the USB ports (your stick included) . Click on the entry corresponding to the stick, wait a few moment to be unloaded from the Windows and take it out. Now you can shutdown safely.

Hello we have a problem with our laptop the battery charging icon will not appear so we don't if it's plugged in, not charging, Charhing or Not charging?

On Windows Vista/7:
Right-click the taskbar and select "Properties." The list of system icons in the "Notification Area" tab includes the power icon. Check the box next to it to enable this icon in the taskbar.
On Windows XP:
Right-click a blank area on the Desktop and select "Properties." Go to Screen Saver and click on Energy. In Advanced Option you could check the checkbox so the icon will re-appear in the task bar.

Hi, I would just like to download a manual so that I can figure out how to use my Seagate. For example, when I tried to copy some photos to save on it I could not. If there is a manual I cn download, that...

To use it all you have to do is to plug it in an USB socket on the pc of your choice - immediately an icon will appear in the notification area signalling the hardware connection and a new disk will appear in My Computer to represent it. Now it's just another partition, use it like you use the others (C, D, etc.)
To disconnect it properly just close all Explorer windows that are opened, click on the icon from the Notification area (a Safely... message will appear) and unplug it from the USB.
That is all.
