In October 2010, install Office Professional Microsot Primewn. After use, it stopped working. A few days ago I burn leaves or applications such as Word, Excel and Power Point at all times remains...

Suggest OpenOffice instead.

1) Anything generated on a computer with OpenOffice, can be used on a computer with MS Office.

2) Anything generated on a computer with MS Office, can be used on a computer with OpenOffice.

3) There is no 'learning curve'. The user interface of OpenOffice looks VERY close to MS Office.

4) It is F-R-E-E

(Told MS Office, well..........and have been using OpenOffice since. More than 3 years ago. Tired of MS Office 'parlor tricks', and losing saved documents, (Try 3 years of tax papers)

Am I proficient with using an office program? Nope. Admit it. I am a computer hardware geek.
Still stand by OpenOffice though, because those who ARE proficient, say it is GOOD.

Just my 2cents, John.

About 2 years ago, our son bought us a ''WD My Book Essential, 1 TB to back-up our data's. As we had to move 2x we lost the part from the WD to the powerpoint (sorry my English). How do we get a new one...

I hope you see this post as we have no mail based reply system.

Assuming I understand you, you have lost the AC adapter. The cord that connects your My Book to the wall outlet.

In that case there is no simple way to replace the adapter. The simplest solution is to take the My Book to a local computer store and have them move the hard drive inside to a new enclosure. The technicians Should be able to do this for about $40USD or equivalent.

I hope this helps FixYa,

How can I back up my data on my book essential?

This drive comes with Memeo / WD Anywhere Backup, so you could most like just install it on your PC and when it asks for the destination, guide it to the my book essential in my computer.

For step by step, use the link below (BTW: the product key is normall on the install guide, but most of the time, if you have your drive connected, it will detect it and auto-register without the need of a product key):!!&p_li=&p_topview=1

If you do not want to use the backup software, then copy / paste your data onto the drive.

New external harddisk cant be detected on my computer

Since you have not given any specifications about model of your HDD hence I'd consider your HDD connects through USB. Your USB driver is old you shall consider upgradation.
