SOURCE: corupt hard drive 1

First you'll need to acquire an external harddrive enclosure. IDE or SATA depends on your hard drive. Shut the computer down. Remove the hard drive from your computer and place same into the enclosure. You'll need to hook your enclosure with the hard drive hooked up in it to another computer and remove all your data. Place back the hard drive into your computer and now you can do a system restore or a full reformat and OS installation. Respond to me, if you need step by step instructions.

Make sure you have any and all Windows 7 updates from Microsoft, along with any updates for your DVD drive for use with Windows 7. Some components work fine using Vista SP2 drivers, but some will need an update to work with Windows 7.

This Microsoft site might help verify if your DVD drive is compatible with Windows 7:

SOURCE: I have a systemax desktop

In the beginning of powering on, there should be a screen that post you some F keys or even DEL key for you to go into setup. Press the correct key, then it should take you into the bios menu and then go into the boot priority, usually under advance if it doesn't have it's own tab.... then change the boot priority order to your HD, and not usb. Save and exit.

If TFGHT is compressed, can i reformat my laptop without cd? or pressing long 0. give me an answer. please! :

Saving space by compressing the drive is not a good thing.
What follows applies to both 32- and 64-bit Windows Vista and Windows 7.
The tip off that the Windows drive has been compressed is a message which looks like the following. 'Some file' in the message can be anything. It might be BootMgr, TFGHT, QXHDK, DFJEU, VUFEI, DGKAR,..
'Some file' is compressed. Press CTRL+ALT+DEL to restart.
Windows will not start.
1. The first step to fixing this is to begin the process which leads to the Windows Recovery Environment (aka WinRE). In both Vista and W7, one can use an installation DVD if available. In many OEM environments (including Toshiba's), one can use the entry Repair Your Computer on the F8 Advanced Boot Options menu. In Windows 7, one can use a System Repair disc.
2. On the way to WinRE, you will encounter a screen that looks like this.

3. Click the Load Drivers button and you will find yourself looking at folders on your computer..
4. Find Computer on the left side (the navigation pane) and left-click it.
5. On the right side, right-click the drive with Windows (the C drive) and click Properties in the pop-up.
6. At the bottom of the Properties box, clear the check box that says Compress this drive to save disk space.

7. Another window will pop up asking you to confirm the change. The windows will get messy at this point. You'll need to move them around the screen to see things. Don't panic.
8. On the new window, set Apply changes to drive C:\, subfolders and files, and then click OK.
9. Now you'll need to wait for a few minutes while the decompression takes place. You won't see a progress indicator.
10. After your hard disk stops showing activity, cancel the remaining boxes and restart the computer. It should boot normally.

How do i view the backup from my previous computer ? i can see the photos from my iphone and one pdf file, the files from the computer are "protected"

Eortiz, did you try to read the files with a windows PC? Because when you connect the external drive to a PC you should be able to view the files and even be able to change the attributes like read only and hidden.

Some PC Laptops have devices that doesn't supports Windows 7 Operating System. Even if you search for the driver in the Internet, if the PC Laptop doesn't support Windows 7, you can never find a driver that device. Here try using these if these will help you fix the problem, but do not expect that this will be 100% that it will fix your problem. As I said earlier there are some PC Laptops that don't supports Windows 7, But theres no harm in trying. Heres the Solution.
  1. First, you must download this software. DOWNLOAD
  2. After downloading the software, Extract the file into a folder.
  3. After Extraction, Go to the folder and click on the Setup file.
  4. Once the software is installed, Run the program and Start the Scan, This will start the scanning of installed devices in your computer.
  5. Now after scanning, Browse for your missing drivers (MemCard Reader, Bluetooth, Webcam)
  6. Click the download button parallel to the device to download the driver.
  7. Now after downloading the driver, you will see a install button beside the download button, click it to install the driver.
  8. After installing the driver, I suggest you reboot you computer for the newly installed software to take effect.
  9. And your Done.
Now if the procedure above, worked for you.. then congrats, your PC is Windows 7 Compatible. But if the device is still missing, I suggest you change your Operating System to the OS that is supported by your Laptop.
Goodluck. Hope my solution will help you. Thanks for using Fixya! Have a great day!

I have reinstalled windows, i need the ethernet and sound drivers for this pc. would it be possible to send a link to download them to a disk?

Download the drivers to the computer you are using. Then burn them to a CD disk.

When you go to download the drivers, Note where they are going First. Write the name of the driver file down. Then look to see where it is going to be downloaded to.

See if it is going to your My Documents folder, (Documents in Vista)
(Start > My Documents for WinXP)
It may go to a sub-folder within the My Documents folder. Downloads.
Double-click on Downloads to see.

It may go directly to your desktop screen.
Have a fresh CD disk in the optical drive. (CD/DVD drive)
Right-click on the file name when you see it.
Left-click on Copy.

Then click on Copy to CD, or the name of your optical drive.

Windows running on the Systemax computer, put the CD with the drivers in it's optical drive.
Go to My Computer.
(Start > My Computer)
Left-click on My Computer.
Now double-click on the optical drive name (Letter. Example; (D:) drive)
Then double-click on the name of the Ethernet driver file.

The Installation Wizard should come up, and lead you through installing.
(Essentially click on Next, Next, and Finish)

Restart your Systemax computer.
Go through the process again to install the Audio (Sound) file.
