Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition

1 Answer

Memory disappearing due to WVHP

HELP!! I have lost about 15GB of memory in only a month on my new laptop. Icontacted Toshiba with this problem and they told me that a large number of people have been experiencing the same problem, and it has come down to the Windows Vista Home Premium package. They also said that the problem can most likely be resolved through Microsoft. Can you help me, please ? Thank you- Sandra

When i try to get on internet explorer with toshiba laptop i constantly get an application error that reads "The instruction at 0x029b0ff00x03950ff0 referenced memory at 0x000x0000004a. The memory could...

I would download the free version of memtest (see link) using a friend's computer or a library computer and run it. If there is a memory error, it is much cheaper to have the defective memory replaced than to replace the computer.If that does not help , please refer to the second link , as you may have to uninstall and reinstall Internet explorer. Also you can install Google Chrome or Firefox and use them instead of internet explorer.

Data Recovery Software Free Download

Download free data recovery software here to take lost or deleted computer, camera or mobile phone data back from hard drives, USB drives and SD memory cards after unexpected delete, shift delete, format, reformat, CHKDSK RAW drive errors, not formatted drive or card errors, virus damage, computer corruption or drive or card corruption and more known or unknown data loss troubles.
Data Recovery Software to Recover Hard Drive or USB Drive Files 
Generally, when your computer internal hard drive, external hard drive, USB portable hard drive or USB drive with many important PDF/DOC/PPT/EXCEL/TEXT documents, photos, audios, movies, apps, games and the like files are wiped or formatted or reformatted completely due to virus attack, drive RAW file system errors, drive unformatted errors or drive corruption problems, etc, or when your computer hard drive partitions data is lost due to accidental delete, shift delete or Recycle Bin emptying, do not spend treasure time in blaming yourself for preparing no hard drive data backup elsewhere in advance or depressingly suffering from giving up all very, very important information after data loss cases. In such situations, as long the original computer hard drive or USB flash drive is not overwritten by new files, the deleted or lost drive files are still able to be retrieved back with data recovery software. So, stop using your drive after delete or format and select a file recovery tool over the internet.
Data Recovery Software to Retrieve Android Phone SMS, Photos, Contacts and Data
If you unfortunately lose android cell phone SMS, photos, contacts and more data stored on a memory card that used inside this android mobile after a factory reset, security wipe, format or virus infection, or if you do have deleted very important android phone Micro SD or SD memory card games, apps and files since you do have accidentally erased mobile DCIM folder or the likes, do not rush to save new SMS, contact or file on this phone memory card and merely download data recovery software to scan this deleted, formatted, not formatted or RAW format phone memory card to see whether your phone information is still recoverable.
Please Note: Any data recovery software out there always helps scan and recover data that has been saved on the phone memory card, not phone internal memory. So, always save very, very important phone data on phone SD or Micro SD card, not phone internal memory. 
Data Recovery Software to Rescue iPhone Pictures, Videos and Files
When you are stuck in some iPhone photo, video and file loss troubles, there are often two clues for you: firstly go check your Google account to see whether all your lost or deleted information is synced there and is able to be copied back directly. And then, secondly, also download and apply data recovery software to scan the memory card of your iPhone or iPad to get lost data back.
But, if you never save data backups on other storage device and Google account, and also have not used a phone memory card, your data often will be permanently lost or deleted once you perform a deleting or formatting process there.
Data Recovery Software to Get Lost Camera Photos and Videos Back
If your camera photos and videos are lost because your camera memory card says: "the card is not formatted. Do you want to format it now?", because you mistakenly delete camera card folders or do a format there or because your camera memory card is blank or has unsupported file system, also do not panic and plunge this camera memory card to your Windows PC and see whether data recovery software is able to rescue your lost images, videos and files back with success.

I suggest turning your computer off. Unplug it and make sure your memory is properly seated in the slots. it never hurts to double check. Is the memory new?

Lost internal memory due to downloading themes in internet access..

If your computer is running slowly then the best thing to do is remove some of the programs, delete any un-needed files or programs, and run a spyware/virus scanner and then restart. Or sometimes just restarting helps many problems.

If it is physical memory that isn't reporting itself any more, then it most likely needs to be reseated or replaced.

To reseat memory you have to turn off the computer, unplug it from it's power source, remove the case panel, find the memory stick(s) (They look like long then wafers that have black rectangles along their body), flip the small holding brackets on either side of the sicks and then gently push the sticks back down until the brackets move back into place. Don't use too much force when doing this, but use enough to insure the memory is seated properly.

After that turn your computer back on and things should be running like normal.

I want to transfer pictures from my toshiba laptop to a memory stick can you help please thank you

Insert your memory stick to your laptop, if your laptop has a memory stick slot or in the USB slot (if it is supported). If it doesn't have on you need a memory stick card reader. Insert your memory stick on a card reader then insert the card reader into the USB slot.

After that your laptop will prompt you and choose "view folder".

Now go to the folder where your pictures is located and choose the pictures you want to transfer and then right click on it and click "copy".

Go back to the folder of your memory stick, right click and then click "paste".

That should do it.

Thanks for using fixya!

I cannot copy the pictures from my Sony Cybershot to my pc; A few days ago my pc crashed and I lost the CD-ROM to install picture package menu. what do to now ?

Hello, you can recover the pictures directly from your camera without needing cables if you have a card reader.

If you do have a card reader, then:
  1. Open your camera's memory slot
  2. Remove memory card
  3. Insert memory card in your PC or laptop's memory card reader.
  4. The card will then appear on My PC exactly like any pendrive.
  5. After you're done copying photos, click over the system tray's "Safely remove Hardware" icon, and select the memory card.
  6. Wait until Windows prompts you that it's safe to remove the hardware.
  7. Put the memory card back on the camera.
Also, from here you can get the drivers for your camera

And, from here, you can order a new CD from Sony, but they will charge you for it.

Hi I have a memory stick that is no longer showing the files on it that I could see yesterday. Something happened last night to it that it stopped showing the files, which I need. Is there a way to...

Hi usually data do not be recover from dead flash drive but please try this option:
  • Be prepared beforehand

    Installing any software after data loss will increase the risk of the lost data being overwritten. A recovery program installed now is good insurance for your data.

    Free recovery software. There are many good free recovery programs out there. Installing one now may be the difference in keeping and loosing valuable data.

    Commercial recovery software

    Commercial recovery software will increase the chances of recovering important data. It's not free but can be well worth the price.
  • Step 2What to do

    Use your system as little as possible until you recover all of your lost files.

    The more activity taking place on your hard diskmag-glass_10x10.gif, the greater chance that some of your lost data will be over written. If you are trying to recover files from a media card, stop using that card immediately.
