    Thanks-After trying the different power supply with no success, I talked to tech support for LaCie. It was determined that I needed a new unit. All is now well!
    Thank you for taking the time to help. I really appreciate your efforts.

We have a few of these Lacie Design by F.A. Porsche 500GB drives in our office. Our editor's drive stop working this morning (was fine the day before) and had all her files backed up from the last three years on it and was making a very soft clicking sound. After taking the whole thing apart and trying drive in another F.A. Porsche caddy with no success, we tried a different power supply hey presto it started up no problems. My drive that suddenly stop working earlier in the year we tried a power supply from a external Lacie DVD Writer and again drive is working. Just to make sure tried the original power supply and would not mount. So if your hard drive stops working it maybe the power supply rather the the hard drive.

SOURCE: Icon won't appear on desktop.

It is possible that your USB flash drive is dead.
The other solution is to try it on some other USB port of your PC (if you used front panel USB ports now try it on the back panel).
If it also wont work, try to connect it to some other PC
If it works with an other PC, your USB ports are dead
You can try going to device manager, and to unintall USBs and reinstalling them

Removing fliptoast from the program list doesn't get rid of it. It continues to appear on the top of most programs I run. How can I totally shred this little ******?


Hi Llewellyn,

Did you delete the program from your programs folder or did you uninstall it through 'add/remove programs' in your control panel. Simply deleting it from your list of program files will not uninstall the program.
Deleting installed programs could also corrupt your windows installation.

Best wishes,

I have an HP1110n....It acts like it is booting up, but I only see my screen background pic. No icons show up. The disk spins and is doing something, but it won't display ANY icons ! Help !


This happens when Explorer (the file manager - the program that makes all the files visible on the screen) doesn't starts at boot. Press Alt + Ctrl + Del to open Task Manager. Click File, click Run and type explorer. Click OK and the icons and the taskbar will appear. If it doesn't start or it's faulty in any way you will have to reinstall Windows.

MacBook connected Hitachi CP x301 Icons do not appear


Ok what's happening is that you have it set up as an extension of your desktop, you need to mirror the displays. when your projector is plugged in and it is showing only the desktop background, open "System Preferences," click "Displays," click "Positioning" and check the box that says "Mirror Displays." This should do the trick.
