I cannot see my kingston technology datatraveler


First, plug it into a different computer to see if it works there. If it does it's either the wrong format(formatted on Apple, trying to use on windows) or there could be an issue with your USB ports. If it also fails to work on a second system then there may be damage. To assess whether the damage is physical or logical, connect the USB device then go into MMC.

Click on the windows menu then right-click on Computer
From that menu left click Manage
Computer Management(a new window) will open
Left-Click on Device manager on the left side then
Left click on the + sign next to Disk Drives on the right side

c26153f9-fd4b-4c4e-a2d2-e3fbb1c1d600.jpg

Look to see if your drive is listed(should contain the name Kingston and/or DataTraveler), if not the device has most likely failed physically and will require professional help to attempt any recovery.

Assuming it is listed, Left-Click on Disk Management on the left side, depending on how many drives and which type it can take up to 2-3mins for this screen to fully load, be patient.



713dd015-c2a9-4b8b-9a22-61361e5cd0ea.jpg


Find your device in this list and check the capacity, it should be at or just over 15GB, if not again may need a pro.

Assuming it is, scroll down the list in the lower half of the screen and locate the drive, if it lists the space in black as RAW or unallocated then the fault is logical and recovery software will most likely be capable of restoring your files.

Once you have completed these diagnostic steps, drop me a note and let me know your results, if you just need a software recovery I'd be happy to provide a recommendation(let me know if your computer is Windows, Mac or Linux). If you do require hardware assistance I can recommend a lab near you(be sure to include you location, City, State, Country).

Hope this helps,

Chris

Have you changed any BIOS settings? I would open your BIOS menu and make sure it is set to "AHCI"

HP IQ772 power but no boot


all PC's fail. (Virus is #1 )
what OS (xp,vista, w7) ?
is this PC in UK, England?
HP shows, CIRCA 2007 build, (1st) and is near out of support)
sure... you skipped the first steps.
1: battery out, get it out of the pc.
2: use only he a.c line pack ,
3 it has PSU are all power pins reading correct voltage? must
4: if above ok, the BIOS works, on all systems,

GET BIOS to work first.

do you know your BIOS hot keys, its very important to learn this first
if working on any PC made ever. 1981 to now.

see this yet, the BOOKS

best is not to pull any Cmos battery , just use a volt meter
there, 3v is good, 2v bad. see? or scramble all BIOS setting
including boot drive... arg.

this box has no standard VGA 15pin jack on rear, making
tests with external display hard
use a flashlight pointed at screen see any data
if yes the blacklight in the LCD is dead. (BIOS screens dead)


does boot up, F11 bring up windoz recoverY.

odd machine, wireless mouse and keyboard
the latter begs the question gee how can we get to BIOS
lacking a keyboard, driver in BIOS ROM.
curious ,,, on line i see no body getting BIOS screens.
fresh battery in keyboard,

what happens here.
If the hard drive errors happen before you can get to a recovery screen, try this:
  1. Turn off the computer and wait at least 5 seconds with the computer in a full off state.
  2. Turn on the computer and press the F8 key repeatedly as the computer starts. An "Advanced Boot Options" screen opens.
  3. Select Repair Your Computer and press Enter .
  4. Select a keyboard layout that matches your country/region and click Next .
  5. When the login prompt appears, select the user name with Administrator rights (not Administrator) from the User Name drop down. The user name with Admistrator rights is most likely the first user name that was entered during the initial computer setup.
  6. Type the logon password into the Password field (press Enter if you didn't put in a password) and then click OK .

    A System Recovery Options window opens.
  7. Click Command Prompt .
  8. At the prompt enter: c:
  9. At the c prompt, enter: chkdsk /b
  10. If a message opens saying you need to forcibly dismount the drive say yes.
  11. When it is done, try to do an F11 recovery again.


black screen has many causes.
if its not just the back light dead, use a flash light first
get BIOS to work, do you get F8 or F11 screens
this is key to solving the true cause on all PCs.
one can use a USB keyboard if yous dies.
ask here , on the real forum.

i read your 2 users guides, no one word on BIOS
that is BS. and due to now rear VGA port (has some mini bs jack)
you cant see if the PC is dead or just the silly display or GPU chip dead.,
a preplexing box, i never buy those i get real DT or top HP laptops.
all in one boxes are custom, and tricky to fix.
for sure the nasty VGA trick missing, JACK

You can buy an external hard drive fairly cheap and it would offer a great, secure place to store your documents. You can check out www.newegg.com, their prices are very fair and their shipping is very fast.

Hi I am trying to install Windows 7 on an Asus EEE PC 900 I have installed it on USB Flashdrive but when I try to install it on the 15GB partition it states that it must be formated to NSFT,how do I do...


Install should do that for you. However assuming your current OS is on a different partition thenyour 15GB partition will be shown as a separate drive in My Computer. Right click on it and select format, in the format type select NTFS.
