There is a Backup in XP but its well hidden - go to Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools and you will find it there. If not, it may not have been installed when XP was loaded on your system.

If you want to try something else, Google on " Free backup programs" - that should turn a few up.

Rather doing a driver hunt which can take hours

Windows XP/Vista/7/8

it might take some time being a freeware driver solution
Note: it will find all of your outdated drivers

This will automatically search for and find the correct driver you will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be asked whether you want to restart or make a system restore point.

Click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated.

on the home page you should see a search tab just type in what you are looking for
IE: Motherboard name sound drivers.
Place a tick in either windows software or all software box.
You might have to try a few times to get it right.

Samsung download laPTOP MANUALS


For updates for your samsung laptop, you can go to: http://www.samsung.com/ph/support/download/supportDownloadMain.do

However, it might take time for you to get it done because you need to manually do it. There is actually one software that works the trick in updating your computer's software.

It is called Radar Sync . It is actually a software that you need to download in your computer. Once it's installed, it automatically searches for outdated drivers in your computer, it searches for the available updates and it updates them. Sounds automatic right? You don't need to find any new updates or to stumble from one website to the other because the software does all those things.

I recommend you the software because I understand that you are looking for the right updates for your samsung system.

I need firmware for Western Digital WD Caviar Blue WD3200AAJS - hard drive - 320 GB - SATA-300 SATA


If you are troubleshooting a system or OS problem, you should not consider firmware updates until after exploring more typical troubleshooting steps like file system error checking and anti-virus scanning.

try uninstalling a few unnecessary programs then click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which will scan for and attempt to fix any bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive this should schedule the task on restart then defragment your hard drive

I cant store video files in my kingston 32gb pen drive pl tell about service center in india


Sir/Ma'am
Bigger isn't always Better..... most older laptops out there cannot READ/WRITE or even understand a USB drive bigger than 8Gb (some not even 4)

It may be that your 32Gigger is too big for the PC to handle and b/c this is all a function of the BIOS and USB Controller chipset in the laptop, it cannot easily be changed.

BUT... Look on the Tech sites to see if there is a BIOS update/patch or fix for your laptop to enable it talk to the big USB drives, and Download it if there is.

Then all you need to do is make a DOS boot disk, add that updater file you downloaded, add and edit an Autoexec.bat file to automatically RUN the updater, reboot your Laptop with AC/120/240volt cable plugged in, and boot from the floppy you just made.

Very important: Once the BIOS updater is launched and running, it MUST absolutely finish by itself. You CANNOT and MUST NOT stop it or let the battery die (why you need AC cable)

When it is done, it will tell you to power off and/or Reboot. This can take 1minute or many hours (sigh). When you reboot, the Laptop will read/write your massive 32Gb USB Memstick.

Get the DOS Boot disk here: http://www.bootdisk.com

221 GB Free on MyBook - Error states not enough space for backup


It may be due to the file system.  If formated as FAT32 files larger than 4gb may not transfer.  Try reformatting as NTFS to fix the problem.
