I have never been a fan of automated back up systems, and well, as far as I know these systems never back up software in that process, just the Operating system and the personal files.
I always keep important files on a external drive, or USB

My ups cannot give backup when AC power fails no power supplied to PC then PC is restarted but i replaced a new battery but no result found. What is the solution for this problem ?


It sounds like you have a computer with an Active PFC (Power Factor Correction) Power Supply.

Back-UPS units, when running on battery power, output a Modulated / Stepped Sign Wave. Active PFC Power Supplies are NOT compatible with this pseudo-sign wave power, which is the reason it will not stay running.

You need a Smart-UPS unit, capable of delivering a true sign wave when on battery output.

Back up


You can backup Nokia with Nokia PC Suite. Currently the latest version of PC Suite is v7.1 1. Download the latest Nokia PC Suite, install and follow the instructions on screen on how to connect your Nokia phone to your computer.
2. Launch Nokia PC Suite and click on the top left icon that looks like a safebox.
3. Click the icon that says “Back up the desired phone contents to a backup file which is saved on the PC”.
4. Now you can select what you would like to backup from the Nokia phone. There is user files from the phone memory and memory card, contacts, calendar, notes, text messages, bookmarks and settings. You can check all to perform a full backup of your Nokia phone.
5. You will now get to choose where to save the Nokia backup file. The file name by default will have the current date and phone name with .nbu extension.
6. Click the next button and the backup will start. When the backup has completed, you will get a window telling you that.

You can now update your device’s firmware or even reset your Nokia back to its default factory settings. The steps to restore back all your contacts, text messages and etc from backup is nearly the same as back up. Launch Nokia PC Suite, click on the backup icon and select “Restore the desired phone contents from a backup file to your phone”. Backing up a mobile phone book or contacts is actually very important even if you’re not going to update the firmware. We never know when we will misplace our phone or even get stolen and cause us to loose all our important contacts.

Unit is still under warranty. Acer Aspire 5920 home theatre. Keeps freezing while on internet. want to clear system & reset computer,


moz-screenshot-1.jpgHello,

has this problem started recently or been impacting you for a long time?

If it's a short-term issue then rolling back to a time period prior to the error occurring is usually the quickest way of fixing the problem (could have been caused by a number of issues e.g. conflicts in the registry or files corrupted). In order to rollback got to Control Panel\Backup and Restore Center and select the date of the most appropriate restore point.

You could also try downloading the latest version of the software that is causing the issue from the aspire website-http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/as_5920.html.

If the above fails complete a fresh install-
Acer supply good quality system recovery and software installation disks with all new laptops.

Ensure you have backed up all your data and any programs that you don't have on disk onto a USB memory stick or similar.

Locate your recovery disk and insert into the DVD drive. Restart the laptop and follow the on-screen instructions to complete a fresh install.

I try to make my toshiba external hard drive back up my files from my pc but i don't know how to do it?


there are different things you may want to try..
if backup is what you need and not just a copy of your files you can use and backup utility that comes with windows xp pro (I'm assuming that's the os your using). to look for the backup utility go to ; start>all programs>accessories>system tools>backup, it will usually open in wizard mode so follow the instructions.. basically what you will be doing is determining what needs to be back up, where you want that backed up (select the externa hdd unit that should be avaliable if you have your external hdd connected) and when you want to start back up... read through the prompts... it should be fairly easy.
if you don't have the backup utility (you may be using home xp edition)... you may need to get a windows xp cd and follow this instructions to install it as described here:

Failed to recharge the main battery before it is completely drained


You can avoid having to completely re-set your personal settings by using the back-up utility pre-installed on your MobilePro P300. To do so, tap Start --> Programs --> My Settings and tap Backup Utility and follow directions to back-up personal settings onto a SD or CF card. You may also use your desktop Microsoft ActiveSync software to save your MobilePro P300 personal settings onto your PC. To do this you open the ActiveSync window on your desktop and go to Tools --> Backup/Restore and follow instructions.
