Error message: Pri Slave Hard disk A S.M.A.R.T. ERROR has ben detected


Your hard disk might be dead due to sudden power cut or may be a shock on the hard disk while it was working due to an accidental hit on the c.p.u. You can give it to a computer mechanic to test the drive if its working or not. If not then you may check its warranty period and if its over you have no other option than replacing it. I also had the same problem with my hard disk.

Reinstall the Operating system (Windows). Missing file is from there. Many computers don't switch on USB when in BIOS - borrow a keyboard with a standard PS/2 plug on it, but the USB will be fine once the Operating System is reinstalled.

Missing Windows XP Product Key-Need to Reinstall/Repair XP


I'm assuming you have quite a lot of computer savvy??? You'll need to access that drive and get the original key off it. Try connecting the drive to another pc and see if you can get to the Windows folder. Once there, use Jellybean Keyfinder to navigate to the Windows folder in that drive and take note of the OS key. From there you can reformat and use the existing key.

My Dell Dimension 4500 won't start unless I take the cover off the hard drive and mess with the wires. Is it time to buy a new computer?


The green light means or is supposed to mean that the PSU is getting power and working properly. Unplug a few devices such as the CD drive and/or the Hard drives and see if the computer powers on. I have seen a fair number of Dell PSUs just fail, they keep putting out the right Voltages but they don't put out enough power anymore. Do you have a spare and comparable PSU lying around?
