Free online virus removal

Do I understand well that you want to recover you Word documents?

If so, after running an anti-virus (free AVG available for download on the net), and a Malware removal tool (also freely available in the net - I suggest MalwareBytes), copy you files to Notepad and them opening the MS-Word, import the text and reformat the document as originally.
When you copy your documents to Notepad all of the internal code hosted inside the MS-Word file will be deleted and only the text will be spared. Unfortunately, you will loose all the formatting data.

Replace hard drive motherboard

Before you start replacing drive you need to ask yourself if you are trying to replace a bad hard drive and just want to start with a clean install of the O.S. OR are you replacing your hard drive with a bigger one and wish to keep your installed programs, data and documents. If you want to keep your data and documents you need to know how to save the Files and folders on your computer to a CD, DVD or a USB hard drive. Just replacing the hardware involves unplugging all cables from computer after shutting it down. Then opening the case and unplugging the cables from the hard drive and then remove the screw(s) retaining the hard drive. Remove the old hard drive from the case and replace it with the new one, replace screws and plug cables back up watching that that the connectors are correctly aligned with the key(s) on the hard drive's sockets. Replacing the Hard drive also involves installing the O.S. and all your programs and applications on the new hard drive. You can find a lot of information in the internet about this.

Hi, I haven't used this drive (Toshiba 250GB

If retreiving data is not your expertise, I suggest you take it to a local computer guy and extract it. The drive could possible be corrupt or password protected. Try best buy.

Need to replace my harddrive


If your system is running under warranty. I suggest not to open the system. Just take the system to manufacture support center they will replace it without any cost.

But make sure you have the bill copy and warranty document with you.

If it is already over just unscrew the cabinet and remove the replace the new disk with new one.

Document transfer from vista hard drive to memory stick

4gb is not enough space to hold the entire My Documents directory unless you have an extremely small amount of data in it. If you take many photo's it wont be long before My Documents is too big to fit. Suggest that you back up this directory to a set of CDs or DVDs,

If you want to update a memory stick just copy My Documents from Vista to the memory stick. Vista will ask if you want to overwrite. Click [on overwrite all] and the job is done.

Corrupted hard drive

Hey michael25,

When a Playstation 3 encounters an issue where data has become damaged or corrupt, the PS3 should normally prompt users to perform a system restore. In some cases simply restoring the PS3 will resolve the problem, but in the event that it doesn't further actions may be necessary.

Should a system restore fail, I would first suggest contacting Sony directly for service if you are still within the manufacturer's warranty. In many instances Sony is able to repair or replace defective hard drives within a few business days, but this would require you to ship the PS3 to them for the duration.

Alternatively, you may always either install a replacement hard drive yourself or attempt hard drive repair using third-party recovery tools. According to Sony, simply replacing or upgrading your hard drive does not void your warranty coverage. Please keep in mind that this coverage may not necessarily include third-party recovery tools (such as Microsoft's CHKDSK, Seagate's SeaTools, etc.), so you may wish to refer to your owner's manual documentation for confirmation before using a recovery tool option.

For step-by-step instructions on how to replace your PS3's hard drive, I would suggest checking out this article from Sony's online support database for more information:

Hope this helps you out.

Go Ahead. Use Us.

I need to replace my hard disk notebook with a bigger capacity hdd

Toshiba is rather secretive with their documentation. It is hard to find. Google TOSHIBA SATELLITE A10 SERVICE MANUAL and check the available offerings.

You now have a 5400 RPM, ATA 100 drive. You should not have any drive size restrictions. Shops are advertising many large drives as compatible.

I suggest that you purchase only a 7200 RPM drive. The faster speed will perk your machine right up.

I have not worked on Toshiba machines but suggest you have all restore disks and passwords at hand.

System failure message

Yes, the ticking sound is the platelettes or the head trying to park, you may be lucky, if you press F8 on start up and try to get into safe mode, if so select 'last known good configuration' and press enter and if you get runnong back up important documents to cd. You may have to replace the hard drive if no luck with the boot up, but you may be able to rescue some files if when you replace the hard disk use your faulty one as a slsve drive and see if you can copy over your needed documents, good luck
