I guess there's a standard hardrive inside the box - take it out, and mount it in a computer or a new box?

How do I solve a problem with starting up windows in my hp pavilion g6? Whenever I start windows a blue screen appears and the computer restarts.


Sounds like your hard drive has either failed, come disconnected, or someone performed a full format of the drive which wiped out the partitions or the boot sector of the drive. Worst case you will need to replace drive and purchase reinstall disk from hp. Best case you will only need to purchase reinstall disk from hp. If you do need a new drive, I recommend purchasing it from hp directly, as it will already be prepared with hps proprietary boot configuration files which must be present for hardware to be recognized by system bios.

If wrong ac adaptor is used can this cause protected message, and can it be fixed?


Hard to say, but protected means protected. Minidiscs usually won't accept too much power ... unless you REALLY overdo it.

I have been there and I would think everything is fine. Just try it with the proper power.

Inserting AC adaptor while computer is working on battery power, may indicate that an arcing occurred and cpu got wrong data to stop sequential operation. You may have to turn on AC adaptor, after it has been inserted into your laptop while using battery power.

What personal media drive will fit the HP m 1190n media bay. Will any fit or are they part number specific? Thank you


Not sure what you mean by personal media player.

1) If its an Ipod or any MP3 player, you should be able to connect any via a USB cable, or directly plugged in.

2) if you mean CD or DVD drive/player like the one that came with it, they're generic, any with the correct interface (IDE or SATA) Though I think SATA in this case.

Here's a URL with the full specification of your system to help:-

If you mean the "personal media bay" listed here, I think were back to a generice CD/DVD drive.

My Lenovo s10 power adaptor (Input 1.7A, Output 20V 2A) was working just now together with the battery. After i didn't used the laptop for an hour and returned to switch it on, the power adaptor isn't...


hi,

You said laptop is working fine if just using the battery,that means that there is nothing wrong with the battery itself. Can yu please try to connect the laptop directly to the power outlet without using the battery just for the mean time,remove the battery and connect the AC adapter directly to the power outlet then power on the laptop,if nothing happens,that means that there is something wrong with the AC adapter itself or the power port on the laptop.
Hope this will help...

Pc states a malfunction and does not recognise my external hd


I have the same Personal Media Drive and one day it just stopped being recognized by the computer. The drive access light flashed on and off rapidly. I came to find out that the actual drive inside the unit was a Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 drive which has multiple reports of locking up. It is a firmware issue with the drive. You cannot unlock the drive by powering on/off the drive. It is possible to "unlock" the drive but you'll need to remove the actual hard drive from the personal media drive case and rig up some electronics to trick the drive into unlocking. There are a lot of detailed instructions on the internet, just google "seagate drive unbrick"- you'll find plenty of guidance. I performed the procedure and my data came back unharmed. Of course you want to make sure that you follow the unbricking procedure by flashing new firmware. I had used my drive 3 times to back up data and was about 15 months old - HP offered absolutely no help.

I applied the wrong ac adaptor to my external hardrive


Hello,

My laptop adapter delivers 4A (ampères). Examine the HD adapter, and read all markings, looking for output intensity ( a number followed by a capital A). Do the same with you computer's adapter.
If output intensity delivered by the computer adapter is higher than the output intensity of the HD adapter, chances are you have blown out a fuse inside the HD enclosure (if you have a fuse)

In addition to voltage, intensity, there is the question of polarity of the adapter (positive inside ---C+ or positive outside ---+C. You can verify compatibilties of the adapters by comparing the C with a dot on both adapters.

Hope it helps sort things out a bit.
