Air bag light showing at the dashboard. It's intermittent happening. The air bag light dissapeared for a month then iy\t's back again. It usually appears for a couple of days. What could be causing t


The airbag light on the dashboard comes for few reasons, either there is a bad connection or connection came loose but than the light would stay on at all times, if it comes periodically than I would look up to the owner's manual and also find the airbag check label inside the car as it might be faulty or in need of replacement. The danger is that if it is faulty it can blow up by itself or in case of accident (hope none happens) it will malfunction.

HARDDISK SECURITY PASSWORD FOR WDC WD3200BPVT-22ZES


Saw on a forum that this could be the default password.. wdcwdcwdcwdcwdcwdcwdcwdcwdcwdcwd


-put DOS on a floppy disk
-add atapwd.exe to the disk
-turn off the computer & connect your Western Digital hard drive.
-turn on the computer and inset floppy
-type atapwd.exe after A:\
-when the menu loads click on your harddrive
- >Prepare Erase
- >Erase
-enter the password " wdcwdcwdcwdcwdcwdcwdcwdcwdcwdcwd "
-It should come back with an error, press enter and the hard drive name will disappear from the list
-DO NOT RESTART-...Your harddrive is being formatted.
-Let it sit at that screen for 30mins
-Afterwards, press the F5 key(refresh) and the hard drive should reappear on the list
-restart...and it'll be unlocked.

I don't know if that will help your problem but I hope it helps someone. :thumbsup:

I have Imac os. I find that some of the Icons dissapear and then reappear.


Which icons are disappearing and reappearing? If you're talking about the Dock (The quick-launch and management area at the bottom of the screen by default), that may have been set to hide it's self, only showing when the mouse is at the very bottom of the screen.
Other icons that come and go are ones that represent volumes such as external hard drives, memory sticks, network places, CDs/DVDs. What icons are being problematic?
Hope that helped, please clarify problems if not!
Oh and by the way - iMac is just that particular type of computer. The Operating System is known as Mac OS. Knowing this will make getting help easier in the future :)

WHERE SHOULD JUMPERS BE SET ON WD1600 SSC / PM2 /OPT1 /OPT2 ????? USED AS A SINGLE DRIVE


hi wiggbone

Western Digital is usually given a choice, do not put the jumper to set the disk to a single drive / master, or you can refer to the stickers that were pasted on the hard disk

thanks and regards

My WD external drive dropped about 2 feet. It now makes a whirring/beep sound. I was able to successfully disconnect the unit. I have turned off and restarted the computer. The whir and beep stopped,...


Ok their is a needle that FLOATS above the metal disks inside the hard drive, when that is dropped either when its on or off, if that needle TOUCHED the disk in anyway your drive is scratched and screwed, thats what happened to yours, sorry but you need to buy a new one.

Input password for WDC WDI200BEUS-22UST


you can set a password for the Hard Drive (Western Digital) in the BIOS. remove the password in same way it was set.

You can deep dive and disconnect the RTC (real time clock) battery to reset the bios passwords.

Kodak easy share just dissapeared frommy computer. please tell me what to do


Try disconnecting the camera's USB cord from the computer. Plug it back in after about 30 seconds, and you should see a "New Hardware Found" note at the bottom of your monitor, and the Kodak icon should reappear after a few seconds. If that doesn't work you may need to reinstall the Kodak EasyShare software. Don't use the CD that came with the camera though -- download and install the latest version - at no cost - at Kodak.com
