This will take care of it.

Run the recovery tool from the SanDisk website. Make sure you select "format" when prompted.

You need to put the device into "recovery mode" before you run the tool.

- Turn the device off (hold power for 20 seconds)
- Slide the hold switch into "hold" position.
- Press and hold the "record" button while connecting it to your computer. Keep holding the "record" button until you see the "new hardware found" on your computer.

Then run the recovery tool. Select format when prompted.

Best of Luck.

Viewsonic va2431wm monitor, lCDd slowly fade from normal screen to white. The monitor turns on but only get white screen, no color. Open monitor, nor bad capacitors. Why no picture?

Hello, unfortunately this is usually due to hardware problem, In this specific situation it is most likely the problem with lcd panel itself (electronic on panel). Sometimes it can work after the units becomes cold (not working for some time) and you power it on again.
Anyway if you are not familiar with electronics , please visit proper service center, due to the high voltage inside.
Hope this helps.

Before there is a sound when my sister listening an mp3 it slowly fade and totally no sound..i check already the audio driver and reinstall again but still no sound...i don't know what to do.

Check your keypad having any problem (if the volume up/down key present in the keypad itself). If your laptop having separate keys for volume it could have problem. Plz clean the volume down key with help of little bit of isopropyl alcohol. Press volume down key 10-20 times and check.
