Good day. The keyboard of my hangs, that is if I want to type something, it doesn't work. I formatted the C drive where my Windows XP Home is placed and reinstalled it. Still the problem persists. There are times that the keyboard is usable but for only about 10 words of typing. The drivers are installed. Just don't know what is happening. I badly need the fix my laptop because important documents are in it. Hope you can help me. Thanks and more power
Well as you have already reinstalled the windows than the next thing would be to get the keyboard replaced as there could be an issue with the keyboard itself.Also try connecting a external keyboard if you have and see if that works.Contact your manufacturer to get it replaced.

If it's new it's probably doing some housekeeping. The drives need to be formatted and then the RAID arrays need to be sorted.
On installing my server, it took days to complete, however, that was with existing data on the drive.
It might not be letting you switch off because it's busy and doing so would mess up what it's trying to perform.
If you don't want to wait to find out if all is OK, go into the configuratio utility and set just one drive up. This will show if it's working as a unit. If all is fine, install the remaining drives, maybe one at a time.
It sounds like your OS (windows XP+, I presume, as it's NTFS) is reading the wrong partition information from the hard disk.
Use this (free) partition software to delete all partitions on the external drive (and make VERY sure that it's pointing at the external, and not your main hard disk!). http://www.partition-tool.com/personal.htm ...so delete all partitions; make a new one and see if that is 250 GB. If yes, format. Sorted. If no, you could try editing the partition table directly with this: ftp://ftp.symantec.com/public/english_us_canada/tools/pq/utilities/PTEDIT32.zip ...you'll again have to be careful you're working on the right hard disk. To use this, you'll need to know the number of heads, cylinders etc. This data might be on a label on the disk (inside the external drive case), or you might be able to get it from the disk's manufacturer; either on their website or by emailing their tech support.
If editing the partition table doesn't work, or if the numbers keep reverting/changing, then it's highly likely that the hard disk is stuffed. Only thing to do then is replace the hard disk in the external case (make sure you swap for the same type: IDE for IDE and SATA for SATA); or explore your warranty options.
Consider a few things that may solve the problem: 1. this is how I always like to test; shut down the NAS drive for a minute and reboot; once rebooted see if it is accessible 2. need to know the ip address of the NAS drive and make sure that ip is not blocked by your system firewall (e.g. add that ip into trusted address on the firewall program; or temporarily disable any anti-virus or firewall and see if you can access, and if you can then it is the issue of firewall), 3.unless you have customized the settings, open my computer and on the addressbar type type the ip address if you know (if it is WD Mybook World then you can also try typing \\mybookworld on the address bar); in this case also try it by temporarily disabling any anti-virus or firewall program 4. one way you can figure out the ip for your nas drive is through the router's homepage; since I don't know your router type I can't give you specific steps; but try to get onto the router's main page and see the client's list or DHCP Client's List or something similar where you should see an ip also assigned to the NAS drive which is connected to the same router.
Post the feedback what happens... we'll see... good luck !!!
the flash drive has a fat 32 file system you must change it to a NTFS file system.
Right click on my computer. find the drive in device manager. double click it. go to policies. select optimize for performance. click ok. then go disk management.to format the drive and select ntfs in file system. I hope that helps.
The reason that it goes into recovery mode is because RAID5 is not striping so it has to rebuild the drives to be compatible with RAID5. I used 1TB drives and the 'recovery' took about 16 hours. It would be faster on smaller drives.
This is not a fault in the design, it is how RAID5 works.
i had the same problem with a NAS device. I opened it up and removed the battery and all power sources. I then waited a few minutes and put everything back. The system reset to factory defaults. It now works for me.
I later found out the unit has three ethernet ports. and if the settings are incorrect then the "Gateway" is not found. You may want to connect it directly to a router and see if it gets an ip.
I've tried hyperterminal and it didnt work. There are too many parameters that can interefere.
Everything is possible. Few points. Is this external hd? Did you used the software and the drivers given by the manufacturer? Which OS are you using?
Yes it is possible to erase everything on any type of the drive and start from scratch. You can do this by formatting the drive make sure you do NTFS format.
Let me know please!
if the kb works on another system then the ribbion is ok, right?, the port on the motherboard is broken, which is almost certainly integrated(soldered to the board with no wires in between) which means to replace just the port you need to get a desoldering tool and cloth and a soldering iron(do not use a gun, they are not as acurate when working with this small of a space) and of course some solder, not to mention the replacement part or a more seriously broken laptop with the same part that you can take apart, seems like a lot of work to resurect a laptop, i would suggest a new board, new laptop or get a usb kb, maybe one of those rollup ones they sell on thinkgeek.com so you can retain some of the protablity, then again since the onboard kb is not functional it just sorta becomes deskspace for an external one. the fastest cheapest fix would be an external keyboard, next time i would recomend knowing what you are doing a little better before working on a valueable system or any that you cannot afford to loose, I see people break the ribbion cables and connectors all the time when working on laptops, its usualy because they dont know how to open the clips on the connectors, anyways try to be more careful next time
