I have the padlock showing on my old apple iPod 160GB WITH THE THUMB TWURL because I forgot my four digit pin

Hi Charles
If you have forgotten the code or put the wrong code in your ipod, you can unlock the Ipod by doing the following:
Connect your IPod to the primary computer you use it with (the first one Ipod synced with), and open iTunes.
When you disconnect iPod from the computer, it will no longer be locked.
If you can't unlock Ipod using either (the code or connecting it to the computer you use to manage its songs). . . you can restore your ipod to factory settings using ipod Updater.
Please note that this will erase all data on your ipod.
Afterwards, you can add your music and data back to your ipod.
If you want to change the primary computer that your Ipod is associated with, do this:
1. Restore your iPod. WARNING: The restore process cannot be undone.
All of your songs and files will be deleted.
Always make a backup of your important data.
2. Connect your ipod to the computer that you want to be the primary computer.
3. Open iTunes and synchronize.
If you can't unlock your ipod and you don't have access to the primary computer, your only option is to restore the Ipod, which will erase all music and data.

Operating system corrupted how to recover the data

RAID is only to protect data in case of hard drive failure. Data is only recoverable from backup.

However, if you have a separate arrays for the OS and data. Meaning two arrays, you can swap arrays onto an identical server with same array configuration. Drive positions (bay /slot) are critical.

There is a colored line at the bottom and top of my screen and the fan is not properly working and it also shut down if i used multi tasks. What should I do? I'm miles away from where it bought....

Hi Veronica, Create a recovery disc if you have not yet created one.
Make backup copies of your valuable files, then try any of the following:
Restore system files from the latest restore point when your computer was working normally.
Uninstall software or software drivers which are not compatible with your computer, if you have installed such software or software drivers, or, restore the preinstalled software or software drivers to the originally factory condition.
Restore your data from the backup copy made with the Windows Complete PC Backup and Restore feature.
You cannot restore your files which you have changed or created after the backup.
If your computer still does not work properly, recover the computer system.

Another option, "after making a backup disk as above" is to use windows to reinstall all files back to factory settings.

Hope this helps.
Kind regards

RAID-1 failure on Dell Dimension 9100 Desktop

Since you are using RAID 1 (Mirroring) you will only need to send one drive for data recovery.
Since the Dimension 9100 uses SATA HDDs yes you can increase the storage capacity up to a matched pair of 650GB drives. I'd suggest you use the most current BIOS revision, but SATA controllers seem to be much more agreeable to large HDDs vs the EIDE ones before them.
RAID is redundancy, but it is not a data backup, as you have learned. Important data should be backed up to DVDs monthly/quarterly etc. and you can even do critical backups weekly.

Blown chip on 160GB Maxtor SATA hard drive

unfortunally the chips on these circuit boards contain a lot of unique data specific to this disk, such as the mapping data, this specific run of hdd software, translator for data coming in to how it is actually written on the disk. and final fine tuning the disk uses to locate its track, meaning they are not universal , but usually only fit the specific production run.

so in short, it may be possible to lure the data out, but it is a highly specialized task generally not possible to do yourself. data recovery work is very time consuming and highly skilled work, therefor very expensive.
this is why its always best to back up critical data on several disks, and ideally on offsite storage server
