The hard drive should work fine thats a standard IDE drive.

For the overheating problem you probably just need to clean the fans with a can of compressed air. That series gets clogged pretty easily. Just blow from the bottom of the laptop where you see the fan towards the outlet in the rear.

You can boot from a USB floppy drive to do a bios upgrade - you can get USB floppies for $20 or so.

Or i have loaded a bios from a bootable CD (you can make one from Roxio or Sonic record now if you make a bootable floppy first - get one Here:

Hi,
if the datas aleady deleted, then you have nothing to lose. Right ?
What you need is a 2.5 to 3.5 inch IDE ribbon cable connector.
this will enable you to put the drive into an IDE slot on the PC internal motherboard ( primary/secondary )
Unless it,s already 3.5"
boot the computer, see if it recognises the drive. And format it.
then you may be able, to re-fit back into the external casing, and use as an external again.

open My Computer and you'll see the flah drive listed there, doublke click it to open the drive's window. put this to one side. Open your download location's folder (maybe your desktop) and drag (click, hold, drag, let go) the files you want from the download location to the windows for your flash drive. Papa

SOURCE: Booting M45 without HD/CD drive?

Only if that laptop has the option of booting from external drives or media ... some newer computers can do that.

I would just get another CD drive (CD/DVD) for it and replace the hard drive and re-install it.

I don't think I've ever PXE booted either ... besides what's the point of laptop that you have to PXE boot - you can't take your network on the road with you?

SOURCE: toshiba 1tb external hard drive won't connect

One or more of the hints below will probably sort out most USB problems with most USB portable / external hard drives and OTHER devices (though not always)

1. Ensure it is connected directly to the computer to a USB 2.0 port not a USB 1.0 port as this can have effects on performance and reliability

2. Use only the cables that came with it NOT one that fits that may have been lying around or is longer.


3. Do not connect through an external USB HUB unless that hub is USB 2.0 AND has its own power supply.

4. Use ONLY the power supply that came with it if it has an external power supply Don’t use any other unless you know it has both the same voltage and current rating e.g. 12V 500mA anything rated below that would not work properly.

5. Always use the same port for connecting your devices. Some devices do not like being switched about. If switched they may want to install software / drivers again. This can be especially true if you move a HUB to another port

6. If none of the above steps help look at updating the drivers from the manufacturers web site in the support section.

7. If you checked and fixed anything there and still have issues then check your hardware from CONTROL PANEL / SYSTEM / HARDWARE.
Any exclamation marks by hardware need fixing before you investigate any further

8. ensure that you have set removable drives for "quick removal" or that you use the "Safly Remove Hardware" option often shown on the lower toolbar.It is possible that files my not be fully written to external devices before they are removed. This corrupts the file itself and even on occasion the drive.

SPECIAL NOTES
USB hard drives should be treated with extreme care.
This is a real hard drive ! and knocks and bumps can quite literally kill them.

Note that if you hear a drive clicking or pinging this could be the worst thing you would hear.
Known as "The Click Of Death"

Hope this gives you the information you need

I have a samsung tv ue46c6000. I am trying to upgrade firmware via usb stick. I have the firmware exracted on the usb stick but when I cleck upgrade firmware. It says there is not files on the usb. Any...


I have only done this once with a tv, but the procedure was to format the thumb drive, and copy the file to the thumb drive. If there is more than just the firmware file on the thumb drive, the upgrade will not work. Try formatting the thumb drive and starting over.

I bought my 2G thumb drive yesterday and this morning my computer is not detecting it but other thumb drives I have.


Hi,

Since you just purchase you Thumb Drive Yesterday and you said that other usb devices have been detected you can ask the store where you purchase it to check and if it is not working they might replace it with a new one provided that it has a warranty on it.


Thanks for using Fixya.

How do I print a Word document from a thumb drive?


IF you want to print the Word document from thumb drive using OJ Pro L7590, IT will not recognise the format of File.

If you can convert the File as Picture file, you will be able to print
this printer has OCR facility ( Optical Character Reade ) but it is Driver built and has to be used from the Software not from the Printer

The printer Pictbridge ( USB Port) to detect the Thumb drive will be able to show you pictures and let them print, however printing any RTF/TIFF/Text document, you may not be able to do so.

I bent off the usb of a thumb drive


Well you can try to bend it back to factory shape!!...

You gotta be a lil more careful with hardware.. those things are kinda fragile.... but i had one I washed about 20 times in my laundry...(didn't know it)... cuz it was in my pocket.... but it quit about 2 mos. later......... Don't depend on thumb drives as a permanent storage for IMPORTANT files.... not a good idea.... keep 2 copies of vital files you don't want to lose

Do you see a message on your system tray when it is plugged in? If you don't see any message, it means that the drive is not being detected. You can't retrieve any data or files on the thumb drive if it is not detected. Things you can try to isolate the problem:

1. Try a different USB port on your computer. Check if your thumb drive will be detected.

2. Try a different USB device like mouse on your USB port. If it is detected, it means that the problem is the thumb drive. If not, it means that the USB port is not working or is disabled.

3. Try the thumb drive on a different computer.

Hope this helps. ;-)
