Go to the dell support site and put in your laptops model number and navigate to the drivers page and download all new drivers and let them self install once you have them downloaded. I usually download them to a temp folder on my desktop, once they are all in there I load them one at a time and I don't reboot until they are all installed. Good luck...ParrotHead PC Repair

Where to find the reset button on my packard bell pc hard drive




Click on the "Start" button and input "Recovery" into the search box. Click on "Recovery Manager."


Click on the "Advanced Options" button when the Windows recovery manager appears. Choose the "System Recovery" option from the list and click on "Next."

Click "No" to decline using the Microsoft system restore and click "Next." Note that HP computers have their own restore system.

Click on "Back up your files first (recommended)." Click on "Next." Follow the instructions given to you by the recovery manager for backing up your files.

This is your opportunity to back up any important or original files before you reset the HP computer to its original settings.

Save these files to removable storage devices such as DVD disks, CD disks, alternative hard drives (that you are not performing a system reset on) or flash drives.

Click on "Next" when the screen reads "Recover without backing up your files." Note that after you proceed with this step, you will lose any and all information on your Hard Drive that you did not back up.

Restart your computer after it has finished the recovery procedure. Visit the HP Support and drivers website and click on the option that says "Download drivers and software (and firmware)." Enter your computer model number (find this on the front of your tower) and press "Enter."

Download the most recent drivers and save them on your desktop. Double-click the driver package and follow the on-screen instructions to install the drivers.

Insert your removable storage device that contains the files that you backed up. Copy the files to the appropriate places on your hard drive.

hope this helps

Can i take the old card out when installin the new d link


If you have bought a new pci Ethernet network card then yes you can, you need to completely turn off the computer and unplug from the power socket, taking the side panel off and locating your pci card, un-screw the clip that holding it in place making sure you dont touch any other part of the computer, and taking the old one out, remove the packaging from the new pci network card and pushing it into place making sure its completely down and before applying the screw to fix it in place, put the side panel back on, plug in the plugs and turning the computer back on making sure you re-place the Ethernet cable, after which on boot-up your computer will say new hardware found and install it if it doesn't do it by itself you will need to search or insert the driver cd that came with it to make sure it works perfectly. please let me know the outcome of this Kronoguy

System says there is no hard drive. error code 0142 says hard drive error


This is what the manual says:
Replacing the Hard Drive caution.gif CAUTION: Before working inside your computer, read the safety information that shipped with your computer. For additional safety best practices information, see the Regulatory Compliance Homepage at www.dell.com/regulatory_compliance. notice.gif NOTICE: Hard drives are extremely fragile. Exercise care when handling the hard drive. notice.gif NOTICE: Use firm and even pressure to slide the hard drive into place. Excessive force may result in damage to the connector. This procedure assumes that you have completed the removal procedure Removing the Hard Drive.
  1. Slide the hard drive into the hard drive connector until the drive is fully seated.

  2. Replace the hard drive cover aligning the notches.

  3. Replace the two M2.5 x 8-mm screws to secure the cover.

  4. Install the operating system for your computer, as needed. For information on reinstalling the operating system, see the Setup and Quick Reference Guide for your computer on support.dell.com.

  5. Install the drivers and utilities for your computer, as needed. For information on reinstalling drivers and utilities, see the Setup and Quick Reference Guide for your computer on support.dell.com.
I would say that was a bit harsh and this is what I would do.
Insert your System disk and install a fresh system. During the installation, Windows should be clever enough to detect and format the drive.
If you remove the drive and with a caddy you could try to repair the system with another pc but you may get problems.
Hope this helps.

When I turn on my toshiba satellite, it says install windows xp. It doesn't complete because it says "no hard drives found"


This can happen if the drive is corrupted, or the drivers for the drive are not loaded in the BIOS of the machine. The first is much more likely.
Try going to a local computer store and purchasing a new 2.5" hard drive. The amount of space is your choice. There is usually some screws on the bottom of laptops holding down a door that houses the hard drive. Remove the old hard drive, then remove the hard drive caddy. Attach the caddy to the new hard drive and insert it into the computer. Try installing again. If you can't find the hard drive door, consult the user's manual.
There could be a rare chance that the motherboard of the computer is compromised if the new drive is not found either. Consult a local computer shop if that is the case. You may need to replace the motherboard.

I need to install a new hard drive .. how do I do


Hello,

  1. urn the laptop over. Position your laptop in the direction so that the Toshiba label, on the bottom of the hard panel, is facing you. Your Toshiba label is positioned correctly if it is positioned on the upper-left side of the external hard panel. Remove the battery pack from the bottom your Toshiba laptop to be sure it is powered off.
  2. Step 2 Remove your laptop's external hard panel. This panel is the external plastic layer on the back of your computer to cover and protect your computer's most important hardware components. The screws you need to remove are located on the four outermost corners of the bottom of your laptop. Follow the chart guide listed in Tips for screw and screw driver compatibility and removal. Distance your screws from your workstation to avoid mixing them up and/or losing them.
  3. Step 3 Locate your hard drive panel drawer door when you have totally removed the external hard panel. It is located where the smaller door in the bottom-right panel was before your removed the external hard panel. Your hard drive will be locked into this specific drawer door and the computer itself. Completely unlock the hard drive and remove the drawer from your laptop.
  4. Step 4 Remove the entire hard drive from the drawer door. Hold the hard drive on all sides to ensure that you do not drop it. Place the removed hard drive in an enclosure area to avoid damage of any kind.
Place the new hard drive in and put it back up.

Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.

Thanks.

Need to install second cd driver in desktop computer


It would be much simpler to remove your current CD-ROM drive, and install a CD/DVD-reader-writer combination drive.

1. Turn the computer off, and disconnect the AC power-cord.
2. Remove the side-panels from the case.
3. Disconnect the "power" and "data" cables from the back of the CD-ROM.
4. Remove the screws holding the current CD-ROM in position.
5. Slide the CD-ROM out the "front" of the case.
6. Slide the new device into place, until the face is "flush" with the front of the case.
7. Screw the device into position.
8. Connect the data and power cables.
9. Reconnect the AC power.

Windows will "find new hardware", and will adapt itself.

I have a Dell Inspiron 6000. I was recently


Remove the drive by turning the computer upside down and take the screw out between the battery and the memory cover (next to a padlock symbol). Insert the screw driver into the little notch in the plate next to where the screw was and slide it towards the drive. The drive should now pop out. Boot the computer. Shut the computer down and reinsert the drive and reboot.

    I found this page that describes how to remove the drive in a 3000, it should be similar to the computer you are running

    1) remove the side panels from your case.
    2) disconnect the drive cables from the back of the old drive.
    3) remove the mounting screws holding the drive in place.
    4) remove the old drive.
    5) look at the jumper setting on the back of the old drive to determine if it is master
    or slave.
    6) make sure that the new drive's jumper settings match that of the old drive.
    7) insert the new drive into the bay that the old drive came out of.
    8) replace the mounting screws to secure the new drive in place.
    9) attach the drive cables to the new drive.
    10) put the side panels back on your case.
    11) boot the computer and confirm that windows recognizes the new drive.
