You could remove the drive from it's case and try installing it as a slave drive in your computer to try and get any files off the drive. If the drive is dead you will need to send it to a recovery specialist but that will cost some money.

Besides the box with the red X id like to add i was trying to clean up my laptop, and i deleted something that i wasnt suppose to and now imunable to play movies. Both happened at the same time


If this only happened within the last day or so, do a system restore and go back to the day everything was working
Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools> System restore and pick a date..make sure the laptop is plugged in to wall socket when doing this and once the restore starts, leave it alone..dont touch until its finised..Has to be plugged in because if it stops for lack of power etc in the middle, it will be screwed for good

When the laptop turned on, it's keep beeping all


Sounds like you have a stuck key, When the computer is off brush your arm across the keyboard a few times or try to find the stuck key and use a tooth pick to pop it up. Have you spilled anything on the keyboard?

Problem During Boot-Up


several things it could be but im going to look at the obvious the battery and cord hook up
laptops when plugged into contstant 120 power the battery is supposed to go into stand by mode and shut battery off so power dont leak into battery
if you have low battery with it plugged into 120 the comp will still think the battery is powering the laptop if battery dead then comp shuts down lack of power

other thing is somehow you caught a virus that reboots comp from dos screen mode
the main thing i always ask is what was the last thing that happened before it did what its doing now
example= was there a power surge pop up screens ect.

Worked first then boot error now comp wont pick it up


Hi, you can try to upgrade the player's firmware, you can download it from the RCA Website (moz-screenshot.jpgmoz-screenshot-1.jpghttp://support.rcaaudiovideo.com/downloads.aspx?product=187), the firmware it's the second app listed.
If your computer doesn't recognize the player, you'll have to turn it off and keep "PLAY" pressed for 10 seconds while connecting it to the USB port, then update the firmware.

Acer travelmate 4000 laptop Big problem


I guess I can assume that you have it plugged into the ac power, so you know its not a power problem. We also know its not a problem with the power switch since the light turns on. So that leaves, motherboard, cpu, and ram possible problems. Ram would unlikely cause such a hault. Even with no ram, I believe the computer would make horrible beeping noises. So if its a problem with the motherboard or cpu, its pretty much trash, unless you want to waste the money on ebay or some place for another cpu to try to swap.
