SOURCE: My US Robotics USR5461 Wireless MaxG router needs

Hello,

Considering the frequency you have to reboot the router to get it to work may indicate a glitch with the WAN gateway.

I recommend fully resetting the router and setting the wireless network up again.
You should be able to reset the router using a pin and sticking it in the pin hole on the back of the router near the power source.

Thanks,

Pat

If your CD-Drive is IDE and you have IDE HDD you need to remove or set correctly jumper on the back of CD-Drive. I think by default it's setup to be Master, and HDD also Master, so you need to give somebody Slave priority neither HDD/CD

My laptop won't boot from cd


to reset the BIOS, there is a small battery somewhere in your computer. if you unplug it for 3 seconds, it will reset the BIOS. I RECOMMEND THAT YOU DO NOT TRY THIS! get a service professional. If this doesn't work you might need to get a new laptop.

Computer wont boot properly


A POST diags card can help you resolve your problem/s, if not then.
1. remove all devices and insert the floppy drive, one RAM module and video card.
2. Go into the BIOS configuration and set it to the default configuration, check the installed RAM is it correct? .
3. Insert the remainder RAM module/s and check the POST info and BIOS again, has it detected all the RAM?
4. Does the computer Boot up using a floppy boot disk
5. Insert the CD and hard disk and check the POST info and BIOS configuration, does it detect the new drives?
6. Does the computer Boot up using a floppy boot disk, run FDISK, can you see the hard drive, if so delete all partitions (if any) and create a new primary DOS partition and then format the hard drive.
7. Boot up with the Windows CD (may have to change the boot order to the CD as the first boot device).
8. Delete the DOS partition, create a primary NTFS partition and the do a full NTFS format (not a quick format) and continue to install Windows Xp or Vista.
9. Install the other device eg modem, Lan etc. and the drivers.

If you have trouble with the first 5 steps, then you most likely have a faulty motherboard and/or a faulty hard disk.

Can u help 2 format the laptop


Before you do begin to format you laptop, backup first all the data files in your laptop. Second, provide the Operating System  you want to install in your laptop. Either Windows Vista or Windows XP. Both windows you can partition the HDD their before install begin. Make sure to set the first boot device to CD/DVR ROM in CMOS setup so it will boot the OS CD/DVD you inserted in the ROM. Good luck!

How do i format my novatech B750


Just use a bootable CD and boot up with it, you'll come to a stage where you're asked to format your HDD.Or bootable flopy disk, when in command prompts you type format e: and press enter Or you could remove the HDD and use a external USB casing and use other PC to Quick format your HDD. Note:If you're trying to format your Laptop HDD, I will suggest that you get the all driver information for the hardwares before installing a new operating system. Because when new fresh installation is done you will be asked for the drivers for CD-rom, key board etc...

Os instalation will not load


Hi Dobssand, the most common reason for a CD-ROM (With a Windows CD in it) does not start to load is the motherboard's bios is not set correctly. While in the bios go to the title Boot & enter boot order. This is a common boot order for a PC.
1st boot device = [Floppy disk drive]
2nd boot device = [CD-ROM drive] (Model number of the CD-ROM drive).
3rd boot device = [Primary Hard Disk Drive] (Model number of drive).

Second most common reason is the data cable to the CD-ROM drive is loose or not fully connected either at the CD-ROM or at the motherboard. (Check it).
If you choose not to enter your bios, you can still get the CD-ROM drive to boot the Win CD in this fashion. Load the Win CD into the CD-ROM drive. Power off the system. Than power on the system & start to press the F8 key once every two seconds. Windows "Please select boot device:" window will open. Using your keyboards up & down arrow keys high-light the CD-ROM drive that has the win CD in it & press the enter key. Windows should start to load. If you receive an error message stating windows can not find your hard disk drive. Than you must enter your bios & go to the title Boot. Your hard disk drive is not listed in the boot order section. Worst case! Your hard disk drive may be faulty. Find the manufactures name printed on a large white sticker on once side of the HDD. Go to the manufactures web site & download their drive setup software so you can create a bootable floppy disk. This will allow you to check/test the HDD & format it for a windows installation.

Or is this not the issue you are having?

Good luck!
Mike
