    You can usually get the drivers from the manufacturers website. What model is the DVD drive?

My lap top tells me that i have 167 errors that it picked up.and i can not get into nothing on there wht can i do.i need to do my school work. i can not excess e-mail or nothing.


Sounds like a virus. You may be able to access a few things in safe mode (power up the computer at the Dell splash screen, tap the F8 key, choose safe mode). You might be able to scan the computer for a virus in this mode and clean it.

A better choice would be: Boot to safe mode, and try to back up your important documents (if you have not all ready). Now place the Dell OS disk in the DVD drive and reboot the computer. When it asks you to hit any key to boot from cd... do it. This will erase the computer (virus and all) and reinstall the OS (follow the prompts to reinstall the OS). Once the computer reboots you will need to run the driver disk to reinstall all you hardware. You will then need to run each software disk to install your software. Make sure you install anti-malware software (Norton, AVG, Panda, Avria just install one). You can now scan the device you backed up your important documents to (to make sure it is clean), and then copy them back to your laptop.

I find the above solution the best because, a virus is like termites in a house. You can kill the termites but the damage has been done to the structure. By reinstalling the computer, you kill the virus and fix the structure at the same time.

I forget my password to unlock my wd smartware


There is no way to unlock the software or hard drive without the password. All you can do is format the drive and erase the data to get functionality of the drive back. If you have access to the SmartWare software, but not the hard drive, you still have to erase the data and can use the software to do so. Here are some instructions:

1. Well, if you have the WD SmartWare already installed you are in luck as there is Erase function built onto WD SmartWare software. There are 2 ways. #2 or #3.
2a. Click to Settings Tab on 4th right.
2b. Click to Set Up Drive
2c. Click Erase Drive and follow the instruction.
3a. Plug in the drive and you will be prompted to type in password.
3b. Type in 5 "wrong/bad" password
3c. This will trigger Too Many Attempts and asked to accept data loss and get drive back.

My computer has too many viruses. How can I erase them


Sorry!!! I know you don't want to hear this, but the best way to erase them is to do a good backup of your files on a removable media (USB drive), scan the media you back up your files to with a VIRUS FREE computer with a GOOD UP TO DATE anti-virus, REINSTALL WINDOWS FROM SCRATCH on the infected computer (hours of pleasure), INSTALL A GOOD ANTI-VIRUS than bring back the files...

Sorry but you wanted to know how to erase them!

How do I erase my hard drive on a IBM T30 and reload the operating system and drivers.


Get an install disk for the operating system you wish to install (Make sure your computer is able to handle that operating system first), then put the disk in and boot to the disk. If your computer is not set up to boot to disk first then you will have to go into the BIOS, usually F2 of F12 on boot (whatever says press to enter setup), then change the boot settings from there.

Once you are inside the installer for that Operating System, it will give you an option to erase the hard drive you are wanting to install the operating system on, and restart new. Just so you are aware, this will reformat and ERASE EVERYTHING on that hard drive, so make sure that you have anything you want saved backed up somewhere else.

Once that is done, continue installing the operating system and then your hard drive will be erased, and the operating system will be reinstalled.

If you were just looking to erase a hard drive, then you can go to my computer, then right-click the hard drive you want to erase, then click format. THIS WILL ERASE EVERYTHING!

Hope this helps!

reinstall the operating system of your laptop. so that it will be a virus free. but before you do that back up first your important files in it. after the installation of operating system and the antivirus, retrieve your files. but before you do that you scan first your files for possible virus infections.

Just bought a hp mini and now has a virus infection. What do we do??


If its possible to burn disc, back the essential data first.
Dont use flash memory/USB device for this purpose. Virus spreads though them easily.

If the infection is small, u might be able to install some good antivirus software like McAfee or Kaspersky [my suggestion] and do a complete scan.

If the antivirus virus fails, the only way out is to re install the operating system. Backup the data first...

After reinstallation u still need antivirus software.
Donot open any drives further.
Install it from a CD.
then erase all drives except C drive[where u installed ur OS]- full erase by right clicking on the drive icon and selecting format option [dont perform quick erase]
Then do a scan to remove any malicious items...

Read this again b4 u proceed. All the best...
Hope this helped

How will i remove the virus manually?


i hope you got norton off your system before putting AVG free on. Virus programs try to fight off other virus programs by postiong false virus claims to erase the other program. eventually they will kill your hard drive. You need a product key for a good virus protectant. Norton or CA offer good, reliable protection for your dollar. What i would do, is back up any really important stuff you have there, format your hard drive and install Vista again if you have the disc and then re-install it to permanetly delete viruses. Also your system maybe slow because VIsta needs at least a dual core processor and 2 GB RAM to work like a XP machine
