What to do if your USB is not detected on your PC...


Hi Everyone,

If you are experiencing problems with Windows detecting your USB drive (Storage, MP3 or iPod), follow these steps to get them back. These problems are usually caused by either viruses or a damaged sector on the drive itself. Formatting the drives after enabling them, would usually restore all the functions back to normal.


IF USING WINDOWS XP:

Follow these simple steps,

- Right-Click on My Computer, and select "Manage"
- On the Right hand panel select "Storage" - Double Click on it
- Double Click on "Disk management(Local)"
- Your disk will most likely show here with NO Drive Letter

To fix it, assign a new drive letter to it by doing the following:
- Right-click the drive, and select "Change Drive Letter & Paths"
- Press Add.. select a letter and hit OK twice - It should now be visible.

IF USING WINDOWS VISTA OR WINDOWS 7:

Follow these simple steps,

- Open the Start Bar (Lower Left Corner by default)
- On the Right hand panel select "Storage" - Double Click on it
- Double Click on "Disk management(Local)"
- Your disk will most likely show here with NO Drive Letter

To fix it, assign a new drive letter to it by doing the following:
- Right-click the drive, and select "Change Drive Letter & Paths"
- Press Add.. select a letter and hit OK twice - It should now be visible.

I hope this tip has helped you combat those pesky USB errors.

Have to perform shutdown twice


The problem is the computer is old. You dont need to shut it down twice. You just need to wait patiently the first time.

In any case the computer is way due an upgrade. 2Gb Ram is small fry these days minimum is 4Gb

SBAMSvc.ex program hogs cpu time


It's an anti-spyware program. I've heard of lots of problems with that particular one.

I would go into safe-mode and uninstall it myself.
Just tap on the F8 keys as your pc is booting up and when the menu appears, use the arrow keys to select safe mode and press enter twice. If you are prompted to select a user, select your username.

Once in safe-mode go to "Start" then "Control Panel" then click the "Add/Remove Programs" and uninstall it from there.

Hope this helps and good luck:)
