Hi Myde, Without any other information this sounds like a hard drive failure. If it is you may want to try shutting down and restarting. It may take a few tries but if you hard drive is just in the beginning of a failure you may luck out and get it started. If you do immediately save you data to CD or USB drive. The easiest way to try to recover is to use Compaq?s recovery routine making sure you select the option that just replaces/repairs the original files. You do NOT want to select the menu option that formats (wipes) your hard drive. Depending on how comfortable you are with the technical aspect of computers you may want to consider taking the machine to a service shop. They have the experience to be able to save your data (just in case) plus can make the determination if your hard drive is shot. Let us know if you have any other questions of if you want to try to do it yourself. As always please don?t forget to rate the posting.

I have a Yamaha Raptor 700r battery powered atv, I have a new charged battery and when it is installed the battery power indicator lights doesn't light up at all. I know the battery works because I use it...


Assuming the Raptor does not start:
The main fuse and the fuse box are located under
the seat. There should be a spare fuse there also. Turn the key to
OFF and turn off all electrical circuits. Replace any blown fuses.Turn the key to ON and turn on the electrical circuits to check if the devices operates. If the fuse immediately blows again, have a Yamaha dealer check the electrical system.
I found this in the online owners manual at this site:
http://www.yamaha-motor.com/assets/service/manuals/2008/LIT-11626-21-12_Raptor700_SE_1516.pdf
Maybe the manual will help troubleshoot your problem.

Operating system not found


hi goodner,

getting the error "operating system not found" means that the hard drive where the Operating System is installed (i.e. Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7), Cannot be found by you BIOS upon the boot sequence.

When you turn the PC/Laptop, you normal see a screen that flashes flashes with screen that displays the ff:

Primary Master:
Primary Slave:
Secondary Master:
Secondary Slave:

The Primary master should have a value right next to it. If not, either the hard drive is faulty and needs replacement, cable is loose,

If you have a value to it and stil gets the same error the operating is corrupted and needs to be re-installed.

Hi,


Welcome to FixYa!

It depends on how you used the recovery disc that you have, reinstalling operating system will not take 23 hours just like what you said so there's a possibility that you're having problem with the Operating System on your computer. Unfortunately, Lenovo will not provide a product key for the Operating System since the an OEM version. What you can do is reinstall the Operating System using the One Key Recovery Sofware or the Recovery Disc that came with the computer. Follow these steps for you to be able to reinstall the Operating System using the One Key Recovery.

1. Turn off the computer.

2. Press the little button near the power button, it usually do have a drawing of an icon that looks like a horse shoe or a headset.

3. There will be a window that will appear which do have three option, One Key Antivirus, One Key Recovery and System Setup. Choose One key Recovery.

4. There will be another window that will appear which do have two option, Restore from initial backup and Restore from user backup,Choose Restore from initial back up

5. It will asked you if you want to continue, Just click on OK or YES.

6. Once done, Reboot the computer.

For Recovery Disc,

1. Insert the disc inside the drive.

2. Turn off the computer then turn it back on and keep on tapping F12

3. There will a window that will appear which do have three options, HDD,ODD/DVD/CD, and NAT, choose ODD/DVD/CD

4. It will asked you to press any key immediately, you will need to press any key immediately so that it will boot from ODD.

5. It will asked you to choose a partition, choose Disc 0 partition 1

6. Reboot computer once done.

I hope this information will be helpful. Thank you for using FixYa...

Sytem error 10


Hi - I found this info on the Nikon Australia website:

"System Error" or "Lens Error" message in LCD monitor trnsp.gif Question My COOLPIX camera displays a "System Error" or "Lens Error" message. What should I do? trnsp.gif Answer Having a "System Error" or "Lens Error" message displayed on the camera's LCD monitor would generally indicate that your camera needs servicing. A System Error is a general error which can be caused by many things: lens problem, CF Card problem, general camera failure, etc. To troubleshoot, please try the following:
  1. Use the memory card that originally came with your camera (or a Nikon approved card).
  2. Remove and replace the battery.
On the other hand, a Lens Error generally means that an error has occured during the lens operation. To troubleshoot, please try the following:
  1. Turn off the camera.
  2. Remove and replace the battery.
  3. Turn on the camera.
If the above tips do not help, your camera must be sent to our Nikon Authorised Service Centres, there are no user serviceable parts in our Nikon COOLPIX cameras. We apologize for any inconvenience caused and we will do everything to repair your Nikon camera as quickly as possible. Click Here for our Nikon Authorised Service Centres details.


Sort of like a Windows Restart to reset the memory.

Hope this helps.
