Not really any trick....
Look at the other similar-sized drives, they may have a mounting adapter.
Generally, a 3.5" drive slides in and gets bolted down with 4 screws.
You may have to mount it with only two screws on one side.

Slotomania won't load keep getting spinning circle


Quit certain applications and see if that helps it to load efficiently.
Always get it scanned by doing Scan Disk and Defragmenter. Other software such as Norton 360 will do the trick to keep your system in top performance. Clear the cache from the internet explorer and make sure you have the anti-virus and firewall software up-to-date.
If that doesn't do the trick here's one more idea. Purchase an external hard drive enclosure it will allow you to just move the hard drive from the system if you don't prying hands around your system. This way you can play the game when you insert the USB cable and turn it on or if you want to install it internally then you do so by just opening the system case, finding an available SATA cable and power cable and drive bay for the hard drive. You install it and you can use this for your games and applications only.
It's separated from the main Windows hard drive but it will work as long as you can install Slotomania on another hard drive. I have the same thing for my games. A whole hard drive dedicated to games only. Some things are better to be on another hard drive then the system hard drive. If you get a 500 GB or 1 TB WD SATA, connected to the system and partitioned and install that inside then you can just reinstall the software in that. You can partition it to 116GB each and use it to basically run games on partition and the rest for applications and programs.

How to set a toshiba hard drive to slave?


Power off the Toshiba laptop. Remove the power cord and the battery.

Turn the laptop upside down and remove the panel where the hard drive goes with a screwdriver.

Depending on the model of Toshiba laptop being worked on, this may include the entire bottom panel, a panel covering both hard drive slots or a panel covering the empty second slave hard drive slot.

Install the second hard drive by inserting it into the open slot.

Replace the opened cover.

Replace the battery and power cord.

Turn on the computer.

The second hard drive is automatically configured as the slave drive.

Depending on the operating system and previous status of the slave hard drive, it may need to be partitioned or formatted before being used by the operating system.


hope this helps

My macbook has a grey screen with a file and question mark


This means it can't find the operating system. Try taking RAM chips out and re-inserting firmly. Also, make sure you got the right kind of RAM chips in the two slots as Macs are picky. Also, make sure you got more RAM memory than you need so the Mac will run super fast. If none of these RAM tricks help, then re-install the operating system by doing an archive and install so you can retain your data. Alternatively, you can take the hard drive out and insert it into an external drive case, then install a new hard drive into the laptop, and do a clean install. Then you can extract the data from the old external hard drive.

Look your hardisk there in a jumper like blue color or any look at the top of your hard disk where to put the jumper to slave and another hard disk to master. but use this setting if you using one cable like IDE. but if use sata just put your sata cable to sata slot in your motherboard. follow the no. of your sata slot.

there are few thing you ahve to keep in mind

there are two type of hard disk

As per your hdd capacity it should of IDE type.

Now there are two IDE slots on motherboard. One is Primary and other is Secondary

You can fix two hdd with one IDE Slot that mean you can fix up upto faour IDE hdd at a time

Now again there are Primary master and Primary Slave

and

Secondary Master and Secondary Slave

Now You have to examine what was the location of previous hdd
1 Primary Master
2 Primary Slave
3 Secondary Master
4 Secondary Slave.

Now you have to make a HDD master or Slave.

just in between data cable connector and power cable connector there is a jumper. that specify the master or slave. do reply me if it works well thanks

How to open case: Seagate ST3160203U2RK External Hard Drive ??


This is one of the mean tricks that the industry uses to discourage people from opening things and then totally ruining them.

What about getting yourself a 5-star-shaped screwdriver? Ask your hardware store guy.

Too expensive? Well - I have a lot of different simple slotted screwdrivers. Normally I find one that fits into 2 corners of these "miracle screws". If you don't have fitting one use a cheap one that is slightly too large to fit and grind it down just to size.

The same trick works with the other kind of "discouragement screws" that have ALMOST a normal slot --- but there's an elevation in the middle of it. A slot screwdriver with a ground-in **** in the middle (Dremel tools work fine) does the trick.

Thinkpad t20 trouble installing operating system


Three reasons why its not making it. One is a faulty hard drive, and even though you bought a new one it can still be faulty. Two is your Windows XP Disc is damaged but the most likely one is that your motherboards slot for the hard drive and/or more are faulty and is not working well. Run XP and choose 'Format Drive' and Install two partitions, one C Drive and D Drive giving each equal amounts and installing NTFS on one part and FAT32 on the other and see which one runs the best. If both fail, Replace your Hard Drive with the origional one where windows was shot and Format and do the same things as above with the partitions and NTFS and FAT32. If again it fails borrow another hard drive and again do the same things and again if it fails. Also since you said its difficult to make it to the part for partitions replace your CD Drive if the CD looks good and re run the boot disc. If all fails, replace your motherboard and give it all another go

Hope This Helps

Performance is very slow


It will not add preformance, but you will be able to have more stuff on your computer. If you want temporary memory (which lets you run more things at the same time) then you want to get RAM. There are 3 slots on the inside of your computer. Only 1 or 2 are being used when you buy it. These are RAM slots. Shove the RAM into there and click it in and youre done! if you want more actualy memory then you will have to buy a new hard drive. These are fairly easy to install, they look like rectangular metal things. Un plug the one in your computer and plug this one in. Note that this is where all of your data is stored, and you will have to re-install absolutely EVERYTHING. You wont have to install any programs to use RAM or new Hard Drives.

when u say setup screen I assume you mean the bios setup screen;which probably means ur hard drive is corrupted.
Make sure u have a os cd in drive and turn pc on to boot from disk,if you get a message in the black screen saying no operation system or no drive,turn off pc and remove hard drive ,check for dust and bent pins and replace making sure its seated(fitted)properly.the action of removing hd and refitting usually does the trick due to small particles of dust which act like conductors and can cause shorts.
if u dont see that message but have the option to install ;go ahead and install in next screen(blue setup)sys checks for exististing os ;if it finds one it asks to confirm install or repair,you can choose either one,both options take about the same time.though I always prefer to install clean (new) copy and delete partition,create new partition and format before install.
