Do not find my datatraveler when plug into computor?


By DataTraveler you mean a Kingston USB memory stick, correct?
Try plugging it into a different USB port.
If it doesn't, try plugging it into a different computer. Does it work there? If not, then your USB stick has probably failed.

If it works on another computer but not on the first, it probably means that the USB Storage driver software is not loading properly on the first computer. First, restart the computer. Does it work now?
If not, then you probably have to repair or reload the USB storage driver.

copied from Toms Hardware forum
"Go to start menu > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Device Manager.
If it's not already expanded, meaning showing the items listed under it, click the arrow next to "Disk drives" and see if it lists a Memory USB Device or something similar. Right click the Memory USB Device, or whatever your memory stick is called, and click "Update driver Software" then click Search Automatically for updated driver software. If that finds something then good, problem might be fixed, if it says "The best driver software for your device is already installed," close that window and right click the drive again and click uninstall then press OK. Then at the top of the window you'll see an icon that looks like a computer with a magnifying glass on it, if you hover over it it will say "Scan for hardware changes" click that and it'll reinstall the drivers."

Tip

Avoid basic Windows viruses from infecting your PC via storage drives.


With the proliferation of mini storage devices is the chance of viruses to be transmitted from PC to PC via thumb drives or storage devices. Here is a simple way to avoid this.

Since most of the viruses launches when you open a storage drive, they usually take advantage of autorun.inf file. The key is to remove this file before opening your storage device.

To do that you need to do the ff:
1. Plug your thumb drive. Cancel any attempt from the OS to open it.
2. Press Alt then R or go to Start then Programs the Run and type cmd.
3. A window will pop up. Type the drive letter of your storage device.
e.g. >F:
[Note: do not type >]
4. The window will show this:
F:>

5. From there type:
attrib -r -a -s -h

6. Then type:
del autorun.inf
You can now safely open your drive without fearing of virus entering your PC.

Unplugged power to move now ethernet wont work


Hello,

If the card from the other pc fits the slot, then it should work fine. Look at the card before you install it in the 1330n and note the model number in case you have to download a driver for it. You can also go to hp.com and search for the network card driver for the m7650n. Let me know if you still have problems with it.

Assuming the keyboard and mouse are wired/usb type, I would unplug them both, then restart the machine. Wait for windows to completely load, then plug them back in (preferably into different usb ports) then wait 60 seconds... That should resolve your issue.

Why would you want to connect to Windows? Yecch. Go to OSNews.com and check around for an interesting OS and filesystem combination.

Still, I'd chalk it up to your having plugged another bootable volume into the machine (e.g. a CD ROM) or otherwise changing the setup from what you brought to GeekSquad. Honestly, you've described the problem circumstances quite poorly. Does it not beep before booting -any- OS?
