You are actually out of options, you have no choice but to format, but you should try the device on another computer before doing so. if its still the same then you will have to go ahead & format. then use a recovery software to recover the data. although i cannot Guarantee you will recover all the data

Unable to read external HDD after plugging it to a Mac (previously it is readable via a Windows PC)

Chances are it was formatted as NTFS format by the PC which is not MAC compatible. You will need to reformat the drive in HFS format if you want it to work as a MAC disk only or in FAT32 format if you want to read it in PC and MAC machines.

External hdd converted to RAW not readable

You will lose all data on this disk using this solution. That is your warning. You did not provide the OS that you are running, so I will assume it is something in the Windows family. Open disk manager and select the external hd. Delete the partitions. Create one large new partition. Format said partition using appropriate filesysetm. If formatting hangs or fails, try it on another machine. If it fails, you could try diagnostics that came with the disk. However, if it fails on two separate machine, I would us it for target practice and get a new one.

There is a program called get data back. This will recover data from a readable flash drive. Even if you have to format the drive to stop the errors and make it readable to windows, you can still recover the data.

The labels/stickers on the bottom of my laptop are not readable.i need to find it please help.i would greatly appreciate it.

I believe you are pertaining to the COA Sticker (Certificate of Authenticity) and you need the product key of your Windows. Here's what you can do do get one:

1. Try to check for a part number on the sticker (provided some part are readable). The part number's format would be X12-12345. Contact Microsoft Support at 1-800-936-5700 and have them generate one for you. They can generate a product key based on the part number. Note that you might be charged 10$ for this.

If the information you need on the sticker is the model of your computer, you can easily look for the name on top of the laptop. You should see some numbers like "dv6000" etc.

How to open 2007 word document in 2003 word?

Hi there,

Two options.

One. Upgrade to 2007. A bit on the spendy side.

Two. All office products have the ability to Save their documents (etc.) in a format readable by previous versions.

I would ask your friend to open the file, save as a Word 2003 Document and resend the file. No expense, fast, easy.

Best regards

SOOO SLOOOWW!!! Excel 2007

Are you trying to open a .xls file instead of an .xlsx file? Xlsx is the excel 2007 file format. Another cause could be a lack of free space on your hard drive. Uninstalling the 2003 version or defragging could do it. One last question: XP or Vista? I find Office 2007 works better with Vista. Good Luck! ---- JG
