My os system is windows7 home i have a verbatim model #is320 usb i would like to un partition this drive make it one drive for my music files thank you

i don't think if we could do it using a third party application, this might put your files in risk. best thing we have to do is to back up all your files and do a reformat. and reinstall windows again. for safety purposes.

Hello, I have a Dell Inspiron 1750 laptop notebook...the other day it was starting a update and the comuter screen had froze and by mistake I turned the power off. When I tried to restart the system, this...

You definitely don't need to get a new hard drive and you might actually be able to fix the problem without rebuilding it, although the chances are slim. Try the following though to be sure:

1. Unplug all peripherals from your computer. This means printers, keyboards, mice, anything. You have a laptop so that should be no problem.
2. Turn on your laptop and immediately after turning it on continuously hit the F8 key.
3. After the Dell screen you should be able to choose what mode to boot into. Choose Safe Mode with Networking. If you go past into the Windows update thing like last time just restart your computer and try it again. If it doesn't work twice in a row, you'll have to rebuild your hard drive.
4. If you can enter into Safe Mode with Networking and it loads up your OS correctly, continue on. If it goes into the Windows update screen you'll need to rebuild your hard drive.
5. Sometimes these error codes can come up when it's a problem with your video card. So go here and download and reinstall the video card drivers.
6. While you're still on your computer if you have an external hard drive, you could backup any data you need. This way if you need to reinstall the OS and delete everything on your computer, you can move it all back over to your computer after the new OS is installed.
7. Restart your computer and let it boot normally. If it works, congratulations, if it goes into Windows update again then you'll need to rebuild your hard drive.

When you rebuild your hard drive just put a Windows install disc into your laptop, restart it, hold F12, and boot from CD ROM. When you're choosing what partition to install the OS to just delete your current partition and then install the OS to that one.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!

i would advise a different os than vista but you can put the old hard drive back in run it in safe mode and by a cheap external hard drive case and transfer the files for the operating system to the new hard drive and then switch the drives back out

Lan card is not detected in dell gx240

Hi, I have the same model dell.
Here is a link for the driver for your pc.


Just select networks, and you'll see one that says 3com driver.
This is the file that is needed to make the lan card work.

I had to reinstall most of the drivers on mine, as it was an old school computer that had SEVERAL viruses, and by the time I had gotten rid of al of them, about 2/3 of my operating system was gone. I had to use another computer to download a copy of xp home w/sp 3 just so i could power the darn thing back up.
Then I had to manually reinstall every driver on the computer, as well as update the bios, replace a hard drive, upgrade the ram, because they had left it with only 32 mb of ram, not even enough to boot up with.

Now I have 512mb ram, 2 hard drives, a dvd rom drive, and advd lightscribe burner.
I also opted to replace the factory ati video card with dvi output, mainly because i didn't have an adapter to work with regular vga monitors. So i put an old nvidia fx5200 pci video card in.
Now it runs like a champ!

I hope the link I provide works for you., Good luck, and have a good day.

Hello sir, if your hard drive and video card is new for now, then maybe your memory card is not enough for your PC. And please try to check the processor because I encountered some problems like that.

Can you Recover deleted video off the camcorder?

I have had success with this camcorder recovery software named asoftech data recovery... Download the program

Please be noted that your camcorder memory card/hard drive should show as a drive letter in your explorer, if not, you need to take out your memory card or hard drive and connect using a card reader, or plug-in to card reader slot if there's any on your computer.

Gateway series 300 with 4000783 moBo, no visual

Gateway are most likely wrong. These Gateway cp's usually have a motherboard failure which stops the cpu socket working, replacing the motherboard is a far cheaper option than buying a new pc, restore windows using my rstore disk which uses your registered version of XP. You could put the hdd in a dell computer, set the jumper omn the back to secondary master or slave of either the primary master ( C:\) or the secondary master.Then copy the files you wnt to an external source or the dell pc.
