Your USB drive has an internal failure making it unrecoverable. I am most convinced of this since Linux could not detect it. A pendrive is a handy little thing, but you should make a habit of backing up your files on another medium. Hindsight is still 20/20. And while HP may replace the drive, they will not recover your files for you. Sorry.

If you find my suggestions to be helpful, please share with us some details so that others may benefit from knowing the whole story. Thank you!

'd also suggest that you download and install all available Windows Updtaes, if you haven't done so already, and also download and install any available motherboard chipset drivers for your system or motherboard.
Also try to connect the pen drive to the USB slots at the back of your computer...

Some of the Windows updates correct USB problems......

If this does't help, you can for sure correct this problem by troubleshooting procedures as given in the following website:

What Operating System are you using now? Try looking your pendrive in the Disk Management.

Go to Start, Control Panel-> Performance and Maintenance->Administrative Tools. Double click Computer Management icon -> Expand Storage, click Disk Management. Find on the right corner bottom if the removable disk is detected. If it does, Click Make Partition as Active / Reformat.

*Drop me a comment if it is detected or not. I'll be waiting. I will assist you.

MY TRANSCEND PENDRIVE NOT WORKING


Possible solutions:

*See if the USB port is enabled in bios.


*Goto Run> Services> Plug and play > Properties(Right Click)> See if it is set 'Automatic'.

*Try disabling USB2 in your bios, restart your operative system, and if still not detected your pen drive, try making OS detect new hardware or hardware changes (to crange usb2 drivers to usb1 drivers).

*If the above steps don't work for you, it might be a driver conflict. Try installing the Transcend USB driver from the manufacturer site, and see if that works for you.(Check in Device Manager, If there is a conflict after installing the new driver : Rollback Driver).

Please let me know the feedback on this.

How to run a guest operating system inside a host operating system without dual...


Install virtual box from : Download VirtualBox

VirtualBox is a cross-platform virtualization application. What does that mean? For one thing, it installs on your existing Intel or AMD-based computers, whether they are running Windows, Mac, Linux or Solaris operating systems. Secondly, it extends the capabilities of your existing computer so that it can run multiple operating systems (inside multiple virtual machines) at the same time. So, for example, you can run Windows and Linux on your Mac, run Windows Server 2008 on your Linux server, run Linux on your Windows PC, and so on, all alongside your existing applications. You can install and run as many virtual machines as you like -- the only practical limits are disk space and memory.

I need to know the disadvantages of an operating system


Hi,

That would depend on what type of operating system you mean.

Windows: Not many disadvantages at all except that over time the operating system can degrade if not looked after properly. For example bad drivers, corrupt boot files etc.
There are tools like defragmenter and other registry tools that can keep the operating system in good working order.

Linux: This can be a very difficult operating system to work with as unlike Windows you have to know "Source Code" this is the input languge that is used with OS's like Linux, Unix etc.

Mac OSX/leopard: Very similar to Linux but the difference is that Mac is mainly just a tool. Used mainly for people on the go and who have no time to work properly with the operating system. Mac has specialized applications which are used all around the world. Many government institutions like the Police use Macs. Mac's are also the most expensive of all the operating systems and computers.



Regards.

Wireless on laptop not active, switch not working


First, go to device manager and see if it was detected. Then, go to the properties and check out to see if it is working.

Next, go to command line by typing cmd in the run dialogue box and type ipconfig /all

If you get a mac address from the network card, then go ping 127.0.0.1 and see if TCP/IP is installed correctly.

If the device manager detects the card, and when you ping 127.0.0.1 and get a response, then the problem isn't the actual wireless card.

If this happens, do a windows system restore to when it was working. Then, if you have to, do a destructive system restore. If it still doesn't detect the card, then the problem is with the wireless card and it needs to be replaced.

Contact the laptop manufacturer to see where the closest repair depot is.

If you have done all of these and still can't get the wireless activemore than likely the ping the mac address of the Just go to command line and type ipconfig /all

Network card not detecting in RHEL4 & 5


The solution proposed by user 'Solutions58' seems to be about windows box since he is talking about 'Device Manager'
RHEL4 or 5 detect compatible NIC cards during boot up process automatically. Sometimes NIC may be detected but may not work properly due to lack of proper driver (a.k.a Module - in Linux culture).
Do this -
1. First find out from HP's web site if NIC for your model has Linux support. You can also use Google to find appropriate driver for your NIC. If yes then you need to follow instructions that are provided in the INSATLL file that comes bundled with the driver.
2. Otherwise buy a $10 NIC card which has Linux support. Disable your onboard NIC through your computer's BIOS and boot it. Linux should detect your NIC right away.
3. Following command can help you in your quest
As root
# dmesg | grep eth (Will show your detected NIC)
# service network status (Will also show configured & active devices)
# ifconfig -a (Will also show your network devices and related info)
# system-config-network (will let you configure your NIC via GUI)
(This would be your best choice)
# system-config-newtowk-tui (Will give you a text base interface to configure your NIC)

I cannot install my lexmark Z53 Cd to my Mac. The computer says there is no memory available although I know there is. I click on "install" and it just flashes.


I use Linux (Ubuntu 8.04); I had a similar problem. If you get to the printers configuration windows, can you see the printer definition? Linux detected the printer by itself, without any installation disk.
