SOURCE: We cannot access sky plus. When we try to record

hi, their is a common fault with certain sky+ boxes and their isnt nothing you can do yourself to solve the problem, you need to contact sky and ask them to reset your box they can do it over the phone so they dont need to come out.
But if after they reset it you still have the problem then they will come out and replace the whole box, if you have had your box for over a year they may tell you your warranty is up and you have to pay for a new box just tell them knowbody told you this and if you had know about this you wouldnt have taken sky out tell them you will cancel your contract if the problem is not put right, after you tell them this they will offer to change the box for free as they make a hell of a lot more money from your subscription than they do from repairs.

Before you do that though check you have enough free room on your hard drive you may need to delete stuff if its nearly full as this could be giving you the problem.

Let me know how you get on or if you need furtther assistance ok

Reset your Sky Box. That fixes 98% of all problems, disconnect from power reset, button at rear usually. Power back up, this may just fix your problem. Otherwise, get the Sky unit replaced.

How to backup your Playstation 3 data

The steps below will walk you through backing up your data on your PS3. This includes any game data and downloaded content like music and videos. Note if you ripped alot of music and/or downloaded alot of content to your PS3 you may need an external hard drive to do the back on. If this is the case you will need on formated to FAT32 and not NTFS.


1. Go to the Settings menu and select System Settings.

2. Select Backup Utility

3. Highlight Back Up and press "X"

4. Next you will get a message asking if you want to continue. You will need to select YES and press "X" to continue. Note as the message states your Trophies will not be backuped as they are saved to your PSN account profiles. The link below will show you how to force an a sync of your Trophies to your online profile.

5. Below is another confirmation message that you will need to select YES on and press to continue. Note this is a message stating some copyright-protected content may not be backup. In most cases this will apply to movies that you have purchases off line. However in most cases you just need to redownload them after you restore your PS3's data.

6. Next make sure that the memory device that you want to do the backup to is selected that press "X". Note if you have more than one device connected that you will get more than one option to do the backup to.

Also if you get this message then there was not enough space to do the backup to. Like I mention above you may need to have an external hard drive to do the back of your data because as you can see below this backup needs 48GB of space to fully do the backup.

Once this screen comes up your backup is running. Note if you have alot of data to backup you will be waiting for awhile for the backup to finish.

7. Now the backup is finished press "O" to go back to the main menu.

When i boot up i get a message that my hard disk failure is immenent is there anyway to repair this problem


if you get a "Disk Controller Error" error messages that may occur before Windows XP or Windows 2000 is started. Imminent Hard Disk Failure This error may appear when the hard drive detects that it will fail or stop working sometime soon.
Backup Data Before Proceeding Although the notebook may continue to start Windows after displaying the message, it is advisable that you immediately backup your personal data from the PC by copying it to a Network Drive, CD, DVD or USB storage device. After completing the backup, use one of the following methods to resolve the error. Step 1: Test the Hard Drive Use the steps below to test the hard drive in a Notebook PC using the HP Hard Drive Self Test.
  1. Plug the AC Adapter into the Notebook PC.
  2. Press and hold the Power button for 5 Seconds to turn off the PC.
  3. Press and hold the F10 key while you press the Power button to turn on the PC. Release the F10 key after text is displayed on the screen of the PC.

  6. Press the Enter key to start the test.
The Hard Drive Self Test will provide an Estimated test time . A Quick test, a Comprehensive test, and a SMART test will execute when the Enter key is pressed. If any test fails , order a replacement hard drive. If all of the tests pass, the hard drive is not damaged.



If all tests pass , press the power button to restart the PC. The error was most likely a result of a shock to the PC triggering a SMART error from the Hard Drive. Since the Notebook PC passed the Hard Drive Test, it is safe to use.

Hard Drive Clicking - Intermittently works


Hi Jackbox

Generally a clicking sound coming from your hard drive is called the click of death which is a good indication the drive will crash very soon and will not start up. So my advice is "BACKUP YOUR HARD DRIVE!" as soon as possible. Because if the drive fails, you will be out of luck. Backup, Backup.

Here is a couple of things to do to check
Scan Your Drive On Windows XP, you can check your hard drive for errors by running the CHKDSK utility. Restart your computer and hold down the Ctrl key while it's booting up. When you see the option to start your system in Safe Mode, select it and continue. Click the Start button, then click Run, then type CHKDSK C: /F /R then press Enter. The /R option tells CHKDSK to scan for bad disk sectors, and the /F option means to fix any errors found. (On a Windows 98 system, use the SCANDISK command instead of CHKDSK.)
If CHKDSK offers to "convert lost chains to files", recover lost data, or fix something else, you should accept. After CHKDSK finishes, restart your computer normally and see if the dreaded click of doom returns. If so, the drive is most likely damaged, and should be replaced as soon as possible. Backup those files
Are You On The Level? Some hard drives are very sensitive to non-level surfaces, and will not function properly if they're sitting on a slant. Shut down your computer, make sure your system unit is on a flat surface (use a level to make sure), and then restart.

Sorry can not tell you more but besides backup the files and the bad part your harddrive is most likely on the way out.
