How to make your Laptop Battery last longer


1. Turn off Wi-Fi and BlueTooth - Most laptops have shortcut keys to instantly disable wireless networking. <br /> 2. Don't play computer games, music or DVD movies - Multimedia activities drain laptop batteries. <br /> 3. Disconnect all external device like PC Card modems, Firewire, USB devices and optical drives. Use the notebook touchpad instead of an external mouse. <br /> 4. Adjust your screen brightness - Dimming your display saves battery power. <br /> 5. Tweak Windows Power Options - Choose a Laptop power scheme that turns off the notebook monitor and hard disk after 10 minutes of inactivity. <br /> 6. Decrease or mute the Laptop Speaker Volume. <br /> 7. Turn off all scheduled tasks. <br /> 8. Turn off Auto-save features in Microsoft Office and other applications. <br /> 9. If your PC has a built-in wireless card, turn it off or disable it when not in use. <br /> 10. Programs that are run from a CD or DVD can be copied to and run from the hard drive, which typically consumes less power than an optical drive.

ALL FOLDERS ON MY USB HAVE BEEN CHANGED TO SHORT CUTS


This is usually a signal that a virus is at work. Check that your computer has been checked and is clear. Then check your thumb drives-all of them including your external hard drives.

How do I down load to an external drive and not the main computer


First Solution:-

1. If you have copied a particular game's folder to the external drive, go to Start menu > Programs.
2. Right click on the file name of the game.
3. Click on "Properties"
4. Go to "shortcut" page and change the "Target" path directing the EXE file to the folder in the external drive where you have copy-pasted the your game.
5. Click on "Apply" and "OK".
6. Now, try to start the game, and you should be able to play.

An alternate solution is given below.

In both the cases (internet game / purchased games):-
1. First plug in the external hard drive to your computer.
2. You will have to run the installation file of the game (both purchased and internet download) and select the folder path directing it to the external hard drive.
3. For some games, you may have to uninstall the existing game first to re-install and select the desire folder path (external drive).
4. Games will be installed in external drive and also available in start menu > programs > "your game".

Happy gaming! :)

How do I down load to an external drive and not the main computer


1. First, you need to select the external drive while saving any game.
2. Try to play it from External drive first, if game does not play from external drive then try to play it from the Internal drive.
3. It does not make any difference whether you are playing game from external or interna drive because both the drives will use the computer resources and softwares to play the games.

Good Luck.

Western Digital Elements Hard Drive 1TB Stopped Working!?


Western digital drives are garbage, I was using western digital drives in customers pcs and they would often come back within a week that the new disk failed. This is unacceptable as my customers need there computers and its a bad reflection on me. Now i only use seagate or hitachi and I have never had a problem with either. I strongly urge anybody that reads this to avoid western digital at all costs.

Upgrade of the hard drive


You cant really get a PS3 Hard Drive because Sony made their own Hard Drives so i think your gonna have to Contact them asking for a PS3 Hard Drive and i think you should really delete some Games like Demos you downloaded cause those Demos take up atleast 500 mbs each or more.

Copying sims2 game to an external hard drive


I suggest try playing the game on a different computer. This usually happens when you play the game on a computer that does not meet the games system requirement. Most probably the specifications of this computer is lower than the computer you originally play the game with.
