This is a little more easy if your using a Vista OS, if that's the OS you are using then I'll advice that you just plug in the USB. Give it some minutes to automatically install the driver software for the device and it would do this automatically.

Hope this helped.

You can save your data like ms files, pictures, videos, etc (except the programs to a removable disc, usb flash drive, external hard drive and any other storing devices before doing the complete factory settings reset.

For the programs, you can just reinstall them by using the installation discs.

Acer laptop saying bootmgr compressed type in password at start but keeps going to bootmgr compressed cannot access any thing

To solve this, you need the install, update or recovery (Win7) disk for your version of the Windows OS. (I am assuming you do not have Unix on the machine.) Make sure to match the service pack and specific version (Home Basic, Premium or Business for Vista (32 or 64-bit), Home or Pro for XP) installed. The Windows 7 install or upgrade discs have the contents of all the options. If you have a laptop without an optical drive, you can run the files from a USB optical drive or thumb drive.

Put this disc in your optical drive and restart your computer. Press F12 repeatedly as the computer starts. This will give the Boot Options menu. Select boot from CD or USB as needed. Let Windows load from the optical drive and then choose the Recovery option. You will need to use the Command Prompt option. Then type "bootrec /FixMBR" without the quotes and followed by enter. Then type "bootrec /Fixboot" (as above without the quotes and followed by enter). At the next prompt, type "bootrec /rebuildbcd". When you get the next prompt, type exit.

Now restart the computer. If one of the above steps failed, you may need to reinstall your OS. Another option to try is to Validate and Fix the File System. From the same recovery disc command prompt, type "chkdsk c: /r" to repair the boot process.

I hope this helps.

Hi I bought office student 2007 and put it on my

What i would do is download powerISO, install it on the computer with the disc drive. Then with the office disc in the drive make it into an ISO. Once you have that ISO. transfer the ISO via a thumb drive. You can purchase an 8gb usb thumb drive online for about 10$. Then install powerISO on the computer without the disc drive. Mount the ISO in powerISO and then it basically acts like the disc is in a dvd drive.
Thank you,

Sir, Good day! How to reformat my hardrive toshiba dynabook without dvd drive

You'll need to remove your hard drive, hook it up to another computer via a USB to Hard Drive adapter and use the operating system of the other computer to reformat the hard drive. This will only reformat the hard drive, not install a new OS. To install a new OS you'll need a DVD-ROM and OS installation disc, or a flash drive with an OS installer on it to install from the flash drive.

Nexxtech External Floppy Driver Problem

Normally windows will install any driver for a usb floppy drive automatically. If it needs one. I'm surprised that it hasn't just worked by plugging it in as there cheap floppy drives over purchased have all just worked without the need to install drivers on win xp and higher. Remember you won't see the drive appear under my computer until it has a disc inserted in it though.
