I am looking for a usb cable to connect my computer to a Toshiba HDD2D60 160MB hard drive that I took out of a dead laptop. I cannot find a cable to fit the 22-pin hard drive.

Hmmm, I presume that by "22-pin hard drive," you are referring to an IDE hard drive. A laptop IDE hard drive has two rows of 22 pins with one of the pins actually missing on the bottom row. This is used as a key to insure that the hard drive is installed properly. The Toshiba drive that you mentioned is a SATA drive which is based on completely different technology and will not work inside a laptop that uses IDE. As such, you have two items that are incompatible.

If what you want is something that will potentially allow you to use an IDE hard drive on a modern computer, then you can get an external 2.5-inch IDE enclosure and attach that by USB. These are easily found at places such as NewEgg ( ) and are fairly inexpensive with the more reliable units typically being around $15-20.

One word of caution, though: if you have a hard drive based on IDE technology, chances are that it is old, slow, and quite possibly already dead, so you may be wasting money on something that is not really worth your time.

Got blue screen.. Trying to restart, but it is going in a loop on all different start up modes. What can i do?

If your computer came with a recovery disk, insert the disk into the optical drive and power the laptop down. On the initial boot screen, select BOOT Options by pressing, typically, F4, F8, F10, or F12 (Each computer is different).
Tell your computer to start up using the "CD/DVD", and run Windows Repair from the recovery disk.
If you do not have a recover disk, remove the battery and the power cord for a few minutes (Let all the power drain out of the motherboard, replace and restart.
As a last resort, you may have to reinstall Windows. If you install Windows 7, there is an option when selecting a drive to install on (You can't miss it) that will backup your files prior to the installation.

Everytime I turn on my laptop it says there is a problem and not installed properly

Sounds like your operating system is not booting correctly, if you still have your restore CD's I would insert and boot from your restore (or Windows installer disk). This will give you a clean installation that works again.

I bought a new battery and because it is not a Sony, I get a caution that the battery is not installed correctly or is incompatible. I can't 'x' out or ignore the message and it causes the laptop to go...

Try using another power adapter and let's see what happens. Also cross check the way you fixed the new battery. Try powering you laptop without the battery fixed.

But if symptoms still persist, I would advice you look for the correct battery for your Laptop, because if you don't, something might get damaged on you system and probably from the power part.

Systems are very sensitive and you can't force them to do what they don't want.

Therefore the best thing to do is to get the a Sony battery.

Best wishes

HI While installing Vedio driver is trowing RPC server unava

Hello sans_sankar,

If it says RPC server is unavailable, that has to do with your internet connection.

Check if both ends of your ethernet or USB cable are properly plugged in their ports on your modem or router to your computer.

You can also turn the modem or router off for a minute then turn it back on again.

Your video installation should be complete, otherwise, it might be incompatible with your computer.

Hope that helps.

Yours truly,
Art Pena

How do i remove the starter of my 2000 neon

The starter is located under the car where the transmission and engine meet toward the front of the neon. The starteractually bolts up with face toward the transmission. You must get the car up on ramps or on a hoist to see the starter. This is just a general method; it is very hard to give words to describe some of the steps without pictures.

Removal: Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable. Raise vehicle on hoist. Remove starter bolts. Removestarter assembly.

Disengage latch and remove solenoid connector from starter assembly.
Remove battery positive connector from starter assembly. It is not necessary to remove the alternator output lead from the connector.

Installation: Clean corrosion/dirt from the cable and wire terminals before installing wiring to the solenoid. Attach battery positive connector to starter. Ensure alternator output connector is snapped into the battery positive connector. Tighten the captive nut to 10 Nm (90 in. lbs.)
CAUTION: It is critical that the alternator output terminal be connected to the battery positive terminal of the starter solenoid, for proper operation of the charging and cranking systems. Install solenoid connector to starter. Ensure that latch is fully engaged.
Position the starter face into transmission housing.
Start bottom mounting bolt and thread in until bolt is snug.
Attach ground cable to upper starter mounting bolt. Ensure the proper starter alignment before tightening the starter mounting bolts to 54 Nm (40 ft. lbs.) torque. Lower vehicle and connect negative battery cable.
