When Windows starts up, a number of programs will start automatically. Most of them don't need to start but they do. The more programs that start up, the longer your computer will take to load everything.

The first thing to do is to get rid of all the junk in your computer. Uninstall any program you no longer want.
Clearout all your old temporary internet files.
Do a registry and adware clean.
Get rid of old documents and files, anything you do not need.

To see the programs that start when you boot up:
Click Start
Click Run
Type msconfig
Click OK
When the window opens Click Startup

You will see a vast number of programs that your computer loads each time you boot. You can uncheck a lot of them. Do a google search for startup programs before you uncheck anything. There are some good guides that will tell you what to allow to start and what you don't need. Note any unchecked program will not be deleted or uninstalled and will still work when you want them. You will need to restart your computer if you make any changes in msconfig

I would also suggest you defrag your hard drive.
Go to Start-Programs-Accessories-Syatem Tools-Defragmenter
Follow the instructions.

Do not rule out the possibility that you have a virus or some other spyware program running in the background which slows things down. Check these out too.

Hi,
if the datas aleady deleted, then you have nothing to lose. Right ?
What you need is a 2.5 to 3.5 inch IDE ribbon cable connector.
this will enable you to put the drive into an IDE slot on the PC internal motherboard ( primary/secondary )
Unless it,s already 3.5"
boot the computer, see if it recognises the drive. And format it.
then you may be able, to re-fit back into the external casing, and use as an external again.

SOURCE: Accidental reversed polarity with an external hard drive

if the board is fried, you can take the platters (discs) out and put in another HD of same make and model to recover data. Will require special tools and patience. Its the only way I know to recover data from a blown HD. PS, use vinyl gloves as to not leave finger prints. and do this in the cleanest area you can find! Im not sure how you managed to reverse the polarity... hope this helps...

The harddisk security sata port 0 , how can I open this laptop harddisk because it is locked


If a hard disk is password protected, you must get the password. There is normally no way around it.

However, if the user password has been set, the administrator password on the hard disk can be used to delete it. I am not talking about Windows accounts here, I refer to passwords stored in the firmware of the hard disk.

Dear sir I have laptop..hp 2530p. 12" inch


You can choose any brand of replacement disk (Western Digital, Hitachi, Seagate, or Toshiba), provided it conforms to these specifications :
- form factor : 2''5
- interface : SATA
- size : at least 120 Gb, if your disc was nearly full, or less, depending on your storage needs.
Any computer shop can provide you with that kind of spare part.
They can also install the OS on the disk, with the drivers for your specific HP model.

THE drive not read in computer


Dear Haileyesus,

Welcome to Fixya help community and We'd happy to help you.

Had you changed anything recently before this problem surfaced? Did you check the 'Disk Management' and seen if the hard drive is listed.

Hard drive inaccessbility may happens due to verity of reasons and finding the real one could be tough and time consuming. Neverthless, I'd recommend few solutions based on my expertise and I'd request you to go through it and see if that might helps you to any extent.

1) Update the device driver for your Toshiba MK 1655GSX . For detailed tutorial and you can visit and follow the steps on the tutorials here:

http://devicehappy.info/solved-toshiba-mk1655gsx-usb-device-driver-update-download/usb-drivers/usb-driver-update-266/

2) Replace the SATA and power cable for the problem hard drive to check and make sure that cable isn't damaged or not working properly.

3) The third and last thing you could try is by connecting to different PC. This will ensure that weather your PC is infected or not.

If none of these helps you, feel free to brief your problem in more detail and I'd glad to assist you further.

My Toshiba mk4058gsx HDD is not detecting


The problem is that XPinstallation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on adisk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then,XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP.The FIX.Go into the BIOS anddisable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is aIDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows hasbeen installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver),then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.http://www.fixya.com/support/r4335035-installing_windows_xp_sata_hard_drive

I have a Toshiba MK 8825AS taken from a HP NX5000 laptop. Is there a cable that will allow this to be connected to an desktop, either IDE or SATA? I need to access the data on the drive. Thanks


Yes, go to Tirgerdirect.com, and look for a hard drive enclosure. Your Hard drive fits inside and it will then plug into a USB port. You need to order one that fits the drive you have, so you need to know size and type of hook up. I use one for my old laptop HD's.

Hi, where i can download sata driver for this hard drive?


You do _NOT_ need any "device-driver" -- your computer's motherboard supports SATA drives, and Windows XP/Vista/7 all support SATA devices.

So, what is the _real_ problem that you are having?
Exactly what error-messages are you getting?

I need to run an HDD2159 external of its computer.


You cannot just connect the hard drive using a SATA to USB cable and connect it to the computer and expect to download data from this hard drive.
You need to connect the hard drive to an USB hard drive adapter which is then connected to a computer's USB port?
Leave the hard drive set as the master drive.
