Re: I've drop my laptop.

Man buddy, if that's all that failed, you sure are lucky. Anyway, I don't think that you could have damaged your memory before damaging the hard drive or anything else. The machine should be able to run anyway without any RAM, but does the system actually boot to windows, or does it just say this in the bios? If it boots to windows, that I would just go down to your neighborhood computer repair shop and have them re-connect your RAM cards, or if you're still feeling lucky, then you can open up your laptop with a micro screwdriver set and tighten them yourself. If you wish to do so, let me know, and I'll give you a tutorial.

My memory card as been locked it is not opening and asking the password

Micro Secure Digital memory cards, or Micro SD cards, provide storage for a variety of different kinds of devices, including mobile phones, PDAs and cameras.
They can be protected by passwords so that the information that you have saved on it is secure. Sometimes, the password can be forgotten or lost.
Recovering your password is easily done with your computer and SD card reader on your computer.

Place the micro SD card into your card reader on your computer.
Right-click your "Start" button and then "Explore".
Find the micro SD card, it will be listed as a removable drive.
Click on the micro SD card and the files will show on the right-hand side.
Find the file that says " MMCSTORE" and then select "Copy."
Right-click on your desktop and then click "Paste."
This will move the MMCSTORE file to the desktop so that you can get access to edit it.
Right-click on the MMCSTORE and then click on "Open With." Open the file with Notepad.
Read the text to find the password. It will be in plain text.
Remove the SD card from the computer and place it into the device for which it is used as storage. Turn on the device.
When it prompts you for the password, enter it.
Delete a MicroSD Card Password
Some MicroSD cards are password protected, preventing you from using the card without the password.
You can circumvent this restriction by formatting the card, which eliminates the password requirement.

Insert the MicroSD card in your MicroSD card adapter and insert the adapter in the SD slot on your computer.
Right-click "Start" and select "Explore".

Click "Computer" and right-click the drive letter of the MicroSD card.
Select "Format", select the "FAT32" file system from the drop-down menu and press "Enter" to reformat the card.

Will not power on


i hope you didn't dropped it cause dropping it may cause to malfunction or no function at all
here are some steps you might follow if its not broken it may work
1. first of all check the adapter if it says Input:100V-240V~50/60Hz Output:5V/2A; 12V/2A ,
if you have the original adapter check for the values
2. if it doesn't powers your external drive then check for a adapter of same inputs and outputs
see if it works with another adapter,go to a shop and ask someone that you want to check ,
if it works then you have to buy it.cause our adapter is out.

if it doesn't your final procedure should be this

1. install driver from here
2. install it .and see if it detects the drive works.

now if it doesn't help ignore this post .cause i don't want to reffer you to a service center,cause i consider this as a help to you.

Best Regards
do tell me that how did you resolved the matter ....!??

Dropped my Seagate while

You really need to take your drive to a service center. You cannot do the repair procedure on your own if you are not a qualified to do the work. I suggest this option so that there will be no more further complications will be generated with your drive.

some readers have multi-sized slots. If there is no configuration that fits properly you have the wrong reader for your card. Take your card with you to the store and get a usb reader that will read your card.

Lightly Dropped Seagate 100GB External Hard Drive

Unfortunately, this probably means the read/write heads were jarred and can no longer function properly. That's usually fixable, but it's a very expensive fix because the parts are inside the hard drive and the data surfaces are very delicate... Most people are better off simply replacing the hard drive unless the data is absolutely vital.
