    My hard drive fell with the usb cable in and then the port was loosened from the circuit board!

    The USB connector broke off inside. I managed to get the computer to detect it *once* but as soon as it was bumped, the connection died and it slid off into the case. Will I have to rip it open, or is there somewhere i can go to have it fixed/ data recovered?

I recently found my wireless keyboard but I the piece you plug into the laptop broke. Can this keyboard still work without that piece? Is their a software I can download available?


a wireless keyboard needs a receiver plugged into the computer to receive the signals from the keyboard
It is like a small usb connection
talk with an IT geek and you may be able to get a driver and a usb receiver to connect to the keyboard.
generally with the price of wireless keyboards it may be simpler to buy another on that will have the usb receiver and driver

Usb input from hard drive to computer is broken


Will replacing the data-cable replace the broken-off piece?

If not, then for about $30, you can buy a new "empty" external case, and then "transplant" your current disk-space into the new case.
Take your current external drive to the computer-store, so that the new case that you buy will be the correct case for your existing disk-drive.

Of course, because you have a "small" (100GB) disk-drive, any warranty for the disk-drive probably has expired, and it would be good "preventative-maintenance" to buy a new external disk-drive, before your current disk-drive unexpectedly "quits" on you.

I need to reattach the rear view mirror to the windshield cannot remove the button from the mirror or disconnect the plug for mirror lights.


Just finished this job 5 mins ago. To disconnect the lights, use a small screwdriver to lift the locking tab on the plug. It's on the top of the plug. You should now be able to pull the plug from the socket. First check for locking screws on the housing. If there are none, take a scrap piece of 2x4 and place on edge. Place the pivot arm of the mirror on top edge of 2x4 with flat side of mounting plate facing down. Gently tap the plate out of the housing using a screwdriver and small hammer.

I'm sorry to say if you have already tried to get one off of the manufacturers website then you will not be able to get one that fits into the caddy. It's a propriatary USB-SATA/IDE addapter. Do what I did and take it out of the caddy and install it in the PC.
