    while flashdrive is attached to lamtop goto ----- my computer---> rightclick and choose properties --> Hardware ----> device manager. Here choose --Universl Serial Bus controllers. You may see an yellow marking on an item. Right click on it and select update drivers. Select the option " not thins time" and on second screen "install the software automatically". Insert Windows CD and the drivers will be installed.

Yield sign usb mass storage device


Ah yes the famous error for usb. Cant identify the device, Normally this just needs a driver update or try and unplug wait a few seconds and plug back in. If updating driver fails uninstall that usb shut down unit wait 10 sec restart and it should be ok.Unfortunately I have noticed that usb devices all seem to get this at least once . From Mp3 players to flashdrivers even had a keyboard it happened with, Sometime it depends on the usb port whether usb 1.x 2.x or 3.x but then it can be what OS you're using. Various reasons.
If using device manager finds no update try using SlimDrivers Free

MultiBoot USB Flash - Survival Guide


Grub4DOS is a boot manager
that can be easily installed to a USB flash.
It allows booting multiple operating systems
from a simple graphical user interface.

laikexpert_5.jpg

1.) Format the USB flash drive in the FAT32 or NTFS filesystem. (Windows)
(
Download and start HPUSBFW.EXE )http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4040651/HPUSBFW.EXE
-REMINDER!!! all data will be deleted on the USB flash-


1.a) Download necessary files
Grub4Doshttp://dl.dropbox.com/u/4040651/grub4dos-0.4.4.zip
Grub4Dos gui Installer 1.1
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4040651/Grub4Dos%20gui%20Installer%201.1.rar

1.b) Extract the downloaded zip files into separate folders.
For example:
Grub4DOS to C:Grub4DOS
Grub4Dos gui Installer 1.1 to C:
Grub4Dos gui Installer 1.1

2.)
If your flashdrive is not already plugged into the computer, plug it in now.

2.a) The next step is to run the Grub4DOS Installer.
Browse to the Installer's unzipped folder using Windows Explorer.

2.b) Run the grubinst_gui.exe program (Windows XP)
Right-click on grubinst_gui.exe Run as administrator (Windows 7)

2.c) Once the program is started, select the Disk option,
then click the Disk Refresh button and then select
your flashdrive from the dropdown box.
IMPORTANT:If you accidentally select the wrong drive,
you may not be able to boot your system without doing a boot repair.

2.d) Now click the Part List Refresh button,
then the dropdown box and finally select the Whole disk (MBR) option

2.e) Click the Install button to install Grub4DOS to the MBR
of the flashdrive.
Hopefully, you'll get the message that the installation was successful.

3.) The next step is to copy the grldr file to the flashdrive's
root folder.Using Windows Explorer, browse to the folder
where you unzipped
the Grub4DOS program and copy the file to the flashdrive.

3.a) Grub4DOS is now installed on the flashdrive.

4.)Download file
menu.lsthttp://dl.dropbox.com/u/4040651/menu.lst

4.a)You need to copy the menu.lst file to USB Flash

4.b)Create a folder Boot on a USB flash drive.
in this folder create new folders
Splash
menus

4.c) Download file
Snaiyahttp://dl.dropbox.com/u/4040651/Snaiya

4.d) On USB flash-open the folder Boot
Within-we see Splash folder. Copy the file Snaiya into it.


5.) Add Puppy Linux on a multiboot USB flash

laikexpert_0.png

5.a) Download the Puppy ISO imagehttp://www.puppylinux.org/

5.b) Create a folder Puppy on a USB flash drive.

5.c) Take from the downloaded ISO, file
PUP_420.SFS (from the folder Puppy)
Rename it to pup_420.sfs
and copy it to
USB flash.

5.d) Copy all other files from the downloaded ISO (from the folder Puppy)
to the folder /Boot/Puppy/ (Create a folder on a USB flash)

5.e) In the menu.lst add a:

title Puppy
kernel (hd0,0)/boot/Puppy/vmlinuz ramdisk_size=100000
initrd /boot/Puppy/initrd.gz

5.f) Preserve the changes and now menu.lst looks like this:

gfxmenu (hd0,0)/boot/Splash/Snaiya
timeout 30
default 0

title Puppy
kernel (hd0,0)/boot/Puppy/vmlinuz ramdisk_size=100000
initrd /boot/Puppy/initrd.gz

title Boot from CD-rom
cdrom --init
map --hook
chainloader (cd0)

title ShutDown PC
halt

title Reboot PC
reboot

5.g) Puppy on our MultibootUSB flash-is ready for operation.
(Now we can restart our computer and see how it looks and works)

Depending on the options your motherboard, it is necessary when starting
your computer keyboard press: F8 or F12 or Esc, etc..
Thus you will appear a menu where you choose your USB flash drive.

Have photos and software on my i.t.flashdrive but now my laptop wont even find the flashdrive! is there any software i need to download?


No soft needed, it's a simple USB stick , the default driver is used for all. Try the stick in another pc, if it's the same then the memory chip inside it has failed and all the data on it is lost for good - junk it.

I re install windows xp to a nec pc but audio driver and ethernet contoller wasn't installed


Install a Device Identify program such as Unknown Device Identifier . After running the program, identify the audio and ethernet devices and go to the manufacturer's website to download the appropriate drivers to a flash drive or CD. Then insert the CD or flash drive in your NEC machine and reboot. The devices are plug and play and should install themselves. If they don't go to the Device Manager and do a Search, choosing the CD or flash drive as the source.

How change my operating system from vista home premium to windows Xp


Caution: If you have anything on the cmputer (docs, contacts,photos, etc.) save themn to a disk or flashdrive before you start as they will be lost forever with the reformat.
Do you have an XP cd and cd key code? If so , put it in and restart the computer , if the computer asks you if you want to boot to the cd , click yes. If it doesn't ask you that, then you will need to enter the bios and change the "boot order" so that the computer reads the CD rom BEFORE the harddrive.
Once this is set , boot to the XP cd, it will ask you questions as it starts and load a bunch of drivers so the system functions without the operating system before the OS is installed , this is normal.
When you get to the part about partitioning you want to del the old partition, then create a new one with the new space, then format using the NTFS files system. this takes a while to complete, at this point it will take you right into the install. you may need to download individual drivers for your motherboard and hardware installed and install those before you update windows completely. Then do your microsoft updates, then load the drivers for your printers, fax, flashdrive , etc..
Post again if you need more help.. also might include some model numbers of your computer and I can help you with more specific instructions..
Regards...

I have a NEC laptop, and when it reboots the mouse/touch pad does not work


Hi

If your mouse has a switch try turning it off and then back on. Else connect an external mouse via the USB port or any other port and reinstall the driver for the mouse using the driver recovery installation CD you were provided with, Go to control panel to do so. That should do the job.

Memory stick


Hi Amanda,

All USB memory sticks/flashdrives uses the internal power supply of the device it is attached to (such as your DVD Rec/Player and your son's laptop). Having said that, once it is plug it is then made into an integral part of the device, if something is electrically wrong with it, the flashdrive will bring the whole device down. Technically, I suspect that the flashdrive has an internal short grounding the supply line. This is the "+5VDC rail" as we call it.

If you are seeking the services of an on-site repair person, it might help that this information be relayed to him/her as it will narrow down the diagnosis to the power supply section, fusible links/resistors, regulators and others of the sort.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
