Question about Computers & Internet
There are two cables provided with the Qubz external drive. I have vague memories that both are needed to get my netbook to read the drive but I can't see where or how they fit - the obvious slots just don't seem to achieve anything.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

"Put it in and reboot"... be sure the aptop is OFF when you add memory! Otherwise, you can damage BOTH memory and laptop! Once memory is installed there is no "trick" to get it recognized. If it is good and meets the BIOS specs, it will be recognized and registered after a cold boot.
1. Be sure the memory is inserted properly (both clips on the sides are flush with the half-moon tabs between memory and metal clips).
2. Sometimes on a memory slot that has been empty a long time (and gets a bit corroded) it is a good idea to insert the memory, remove it again and reinsert 5 or 6 times (only) to clean the contacts.
3. If number 1 and 2 have been done, and you still have this error, then there is a problem with the memory:
It may be the wrong speed (PC100 instead of PC133, etc)
It may be too LARGE for the BIOS to use (all laptops have maximum memory per slot specs that must be observed, because the laptop cannot see memory that is greater than its specified capacity.
In any case, check the manual or the website for your laptop, to get the specifications for memory type AND capacity per slot, and TOTAL memory if you have two slots -or memory soldered on board).

SOURCE: pc died
Hello, I have had similar problems with that same motherboard in the past and have found that resetting the cmos (see users manual) or just taking the battery of the motherboard for a few minutes can solve this. CAUTION please remove the power lead on your tower before touching any components inside, and earth yourself first by touching metal.. as static discharge kills pc components..
Hope this helps.....

depending on how many speaker you intend to run will determine the type of amp you will need. Set the output on the source unit to optical out. Connect the optical cable to the amp. Connect the speakers to amp. turn them all on and select the iput of the source unit on the amp and enjoy.

Yes, it sounds like the disk transport mechanism is shot. You can try www.macsales.com for a replacement internal, but those are usually a) pricey and b) a REAL pain to install (LOTS of small parts and such) - www.ifixit.com has real nice tear-down guides for just this purpose. Or, for lots cheaper, you could just use an external drive. Good chance to upgrade to a faster drive/one with more features. Go for a bus-powered one to cut down on the extra cords.

sounds like you are using the wrong power supply. Check the amp output on the power plug you plug into the wall make sure its the same as the amp input of your external harddrive

Your drive is not spinning up because of ither a read channel calibration error- or a focus servo error- assumimng your using the same media you always have been- and its not REALLY dusty.
Read Cal failure is caused by the controller and the Focus Servo Failure is caused by the optcs module-
repair cost $285 for either.
