Re: updating my hard disk

Find out the model of your pc and more then likely you will need another computer that has internet access and go to the manufactuer's website and go to support > drivers > then enter your model number and download it all.

DELL, HP go by Serial Numbers more recently and SONY, APPLE go by model number.

If you know the model/serial number or can't seem to find it let me know what kind of PC it is and I will be more then happy to help you locate it and help you get to where you need to download it.

My dell optiplex 330 motherboard all 4 sata ports not working

Try updating the chipset driver of your computer. You can also scan it with RadarSync to detect all outdated drivers that might have caused this problem. The software will also install all available updates.

I hope this helps!

My Dell Inspiron E1405 is getting the blue screen of death before starting up windows xp. It has the stop codes 0x00000024 (0x001902FE, 0xF8C7E4D4, 0x0F8C7E1D0, 0x83622816) it tells me to uninstall any...

STOP 0x00000024, 0X0000024, 0X24 or NTFS_FILE_SYSTEM = this stop error means that your NTFS file system is corrupt and this is practically impossible to fix - absolutely everything on your hard disk is trashed. The only reliable way to fix that is to reinstall Windows.

Installed new hard drive (old one crashed) no sound now

You need another sound system. If it's xp it is probably ac 97. However; go to windows update, make sure you have all of the updates. Then go to the control panel, device manager and look for a yellow question mark or a yellow exclamation mark, if there, right click and click update driver or click uninstall from the system, restart the computer and windows will look for the drivers, just follow on screen directions.

What driver? Try going to the start menu (in the search box) and type Windows Update. Run the update and install any and all Recommended (and optional if desired) updates available.

Also, if you have the OS installations disk, run the disk, and choose the "repair" option when prompted.

You can also search for specific drivers online on the Microsoft Website.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.
