Mazda b2200 when i hit breaks the engine shuts off

my wild guess, you are driving car? not parked
eg: im driving along, i see a stop sign and slow and as i slow to
a stop , the engine stalls? bingo:?
but, i can save the stall with a fast right foot.
real easy save?, hard save? or IMPOSSIBLE?

if easy save tad hard, the EGR valve just stuck open,
clean the EGR main valve.
if impossible , say so.

super easy save might be , stuck ISC. (idle speed contoller) same
fix, clean it. in fact at 50k we clean both, per the service schedules.
all cars .

Hard disk c drive is full

You will have to re-do your software Operating Software Windows and install it to D: as the primary drive. Why not just do a good cleaning of the main drive send anything over to D: that can be saved there and free up the primary drive making more room even better. Use the D: as a saving and use to gather all your goodies and take them off of the drive get rid of any unwanted software. Do a good cleanup I'm sure you will find lots of room once you do that. Just a suggestion!
That is what I do I have one for the operating system only primary C: and the other for things I wish to save to it that is bigger than the primary since all I will be doing is using the space on C: to just run Windows. Then anything else I save I either burn to a disk, slap it on a USB Stick or send it to a free 5 gig service thus illuminating clogging of my drives.
Most people do this when saving stuff they want to keep they get it off the primary drive in case of a crash. Again just a suggestion. John

I cant save anything on the 1T external hard drive. I am running windows 7. The computer reconizes it but wont save

The Hard Drive must be Write protected. There might be a Toggle switch around External Drive for Write Protection. Or can you save files to any other USB Drive (Pen Drive) ?

I would like to clean, erase the contenue of my Maxtor... how to do it??

If you are operating in Windows. click "START" and then "COMPUTER" or "MY COMPUTER". a screen will appear with all fixed and portable drives hooked up. Find the Maxtor hard drive and RIGHT CLICK it. In the drop down menu choose "format". this will erase EVERYTHING on it so make sure you have saved anything you want to keep in another place.

Hi, I am trying to reset my acer desktop to factory settings. I have tried the acer erecovery management restore and nothing happened. I have also hit delete at startup and clicked "restore default...

You can download the windows installation from the Microsoft website, and run it. Select the Custom Install option to run a Clean Install and select to Reformat the drive, this would clean the drive and reinstall windows, which would reset everything to the factory settings.
That's an alternate route to go if the recovery software on your computer is not functioning properly.
Hope this helps!

It was 5 months since I bought the 1 TB hard drive.A couple of days ago,it was working as it should.But today,when I opened it to see a movie all files (or maybe all Data) were gone!And as if that was not...

Yes, power cuts, surges, low voltage, variable voltage and any sudden changes in electricity can cause a hard drive to fail or act improperly. If the drive had failed, though, you wouldn't be able to see or do anything with the drive now. Are you able to save anything to the drive now? can you browse to it and save a small text file or document? If you can save a document and read it from the drive now, the drive isn't completely failed, and your data may still be recoverable.

Bought an Iomega external hardrive and saved all my things from my previous job on it. Now, I am opening everything at my new job and although I can open it, I can not saved or edit or delete anything


When you open My Computer is this new external drive recognized? Does it happen to say Disconnected Drive?

At work, does your IT department restrict you from adding any perripherial devices to your computer?

If this does not help, please let me know.

That's okay ..there is nothing like amateur. We all are in our learning phase. Good thing is you have curousity to know

or you can cut-copy-paste to save anything from your hard drive

Hope it helps !! please let me know if i have't understand your question correctly ..
