Acer Aspire one 722 windows 7 netbook. "Check cable connection" and "no bootable device--insert boot disk and press any key" are two common things appearing. The computer recognized hardrive, hardr


Hello, it looks like somehow the master boot record was erased from the hard drive, maybe viral? You mentioned the hard drive was recognized in the bios correct? If you need data from the hard drive the easiest way would be to pull the hard drive out and use an external hard drive enclosure to remove the data before you erase everything from the hard drive. If you dont need anything thing you can proceed to do a new install of Windows 7. Turn the computer on then hold alt and the f10 key to perform a factory recovery. This will erase everything and reinstall Windows 7. If this doesnt work then you will need a new hard drive and a bootable usb drive with Windows 7 on it. Hope this helps.

well how can it be new? (new old stock you meant)
or new to you?
its at least 10 years old.. an old Desk top drive.

this is all there is now, they are deleting this section now.
Questions of the day.?
why run a 3year old dead,OS XP?
its dead, that means when you need drivers its going to be hard to impossible to find or will by found but will be full of VIRUS.
upgrade to w7. (buy a retail license for it and use it)
(ask how)
no system stated, just a DVD #
cant help much with that.
To make DVD and USB work right on XP it needs SP3.
service pack 3, but finding it can be hard.
no stores sell it (brick) no disks marked XP with SP3 now.

plug it in to a new machine, say w10 laptop or desktop
if it plugs and plays that means windows still supports it.
and if true may work with W7 too.
then try it on w7? learn where it can work and where not.
and save all this grief.

I want to install my webcam on my laptop but its version is not compatible with my windows 7. how can I find it?


Download the driver for Windows Vista and run it in the compatibility mode selecting Windows Vista. You can do this by right clicking on the installation file and under compatibility. The web cam works fine. The only problem i found was that the camera settings are set to auto and cannot be changed. However, it works fine.

Try another usb port. If your using a desktop, try the usb ports at the back of the tower. Also use a shorter usb cable. Long usb cable has the possibility that a power lose will occur. Shorter usb cables has more direct power output going to the external hardrive. Also check your usb drivers in your device manager if it has errors. Right click on My Computer icon on the desktop, then choose Properties, then go to the Device Manager tab then click on the Manage Devices button, there you can see all your hardwares if they are working fine.

Fantom Drive TFDU16072A Error


2009 06 30 - I just had a similar problem. The Fantom external drive was working fine, but I had to shut down due to a thunderstorm. When I restarted the PC, the drive was not showing up. WHAT I FOUND: First, I didn't find this solution anywhere - everything seemed to point to a new install (or at least how to reformat and start over.) BUT, I right clicked on Computer, Manage, Disk Management - it still didn't show. On the right, under More Actions, I clicked 'rescan disks'. Now it shows up! And all of my data is right there. Whew!
