My SanDisck 4GB thumb drive lights up, but is not recognized on ANY of my computers anymore. Is there a way I can get all my files from the drive? Or is it broken?

You could try something like drive genius/ gparted/ etc to see if you can mount in those and check for corruption and possibly fix it.
Have you checked in computer management > disk manager or are you just saying it doesnt pop up in my computer? Double check comp management if you havent because that will show disks even if windows wont mount them (if it isnt recognized even there as well then it is probably fried).
I dont know what kind of data you had on it, but backup is something very important that a lot of people overlook until it is too late. You should ALWAYS backup any important files in at least more than one place. If you are looking for an easy way to get started....try out dropbox! It is a free app that makes it easy to automatically back up 2gb of files for free as well as sync those files to multiple computers/ iPhone/ etc. You can earn more space by referring people or purchase 50 or 100gb for a yearly fee.

How do I do a full recovery with the disc

Turn your computer on.

Insert the Disk and choose to enter BIOS, should be F2 but watch the screen to see the right function key.

Change the boot device order to: CD-ROM, HDD in that order.

Save changes and restart the computer.

The Recovery Disk would boot up and a wizard will guide you through the recovery process.

Follow the instructions to recover your computer.

backup whatever information you have and run the system recovery through the disks you received when you purchased the computer. If you can perform the recovery then you know the hardware is fine and that you were experiencing software corruption.

My volume control is not working.

go to device manager in the control panel under system folder.
Open the device manager and see if you have any warning messages; they look like little yellow triangle with !  in it. Open if any on the sound drivers; you then need to open that then a window will open; click on driver update. If you already have the drivers point it to where you have them on the drive and see what happens.

Unreadable fujitsu 160 gb mhy2160bh

Some HD manufacturers provide utilities for Disk Recovery. You can usually download these from their site. If you are lucky it is just the drives Master Boot Record that is damaged. The fact that the drive is recognizable is in your favour I think. Unfortunately when power is restored after an outage there is often a power surge or spike on your AC which can damage electronic equipment. Many devices these days work on such low voltages and current that it doesn't take much. A good surge protector is a must for computer equipment.

No boot up

Solution :
  • Run chkdsk /r or chkdsk /f to detect and resolve any file system structural damage.
  • After you use the Chkdsk tool to repair the corrupted NTFS volume, rename %SystemRoot%\System32\Drivers\Ntfs.old to Ntfs.sys, and then shut down and restart the computer.
  • Try disabling any virus scanning programs, backup programs, or disk defragmenter tools that constantly monitor your computer.
  • Run any system diagnostics that are supplied by your computer manufacturer, especially a HDD check.
