Restore your laptop back to yesterday - when it worked. Once you're done with that, try your external again. It should now work.

Hope this helped you. Good Luck!

My daughter has lost her windows login password(vista}


There is software for sale that will remove the password. A bit expensive! Maybe a cheaper option to install a fresh copy of Vista from the recovery partition and restore your backups to the new system as all data will be lost. If you have no backups, purchase a new external hdd, install it in the laptop, put Vista on it and put the old drive in the caddy. You can then copy your data over to the new hdd, or purchase the software to unlock the windows password.

I have a broken Toshiba laptop, [the battery died]..and I have photos stored on it..is it possible to retrieve the photos?.. I also have a new Toshiba laptop...please help??


I don't think you lose data because battery is dead. Data is on your HD. Why don't you connect it to power supply and see if the old laptop is really working.

Whenever back up or defrag laptop goes off


Three things you can try:
1. Disable automatic restart on System failure.2. Boot your laptop to safe mode and run a hard drive diagnostic program3. If the test fails, the replace your hard drive:a) Order the recovery disks for your laptop from the manufacturer of your laptop. Call them to order it.
b) Take your old hard drive to a big name electronics store such as best buy, and ask them to sell you a similar hard drive.
c) purchase a USB to SATA cable (sold in most electronic stores) to turn your old hard drive into an external drive that plugs into your laptop's USB so you can transfer your data.
d) Reinstall Windows using the recovery disks and after your done, plug in your old hard drive and transfer all your data.
Let me know if this helps.

Unable to charge 700EB ebook-blue light keeps flashing-no charge taken.I am using AC adaptor.


About how old is the laptop? A common occurrence in older model laptops is the charge port becoming dislodged from the internal motherboard. The only real option you have, if this is the case, would be to back up your data with an external hard drive, and buy a new machine. If you do not have an external hard drive, but have access to another computer, then there is another option for data backup. Remove the hard drive from the laptop, buy an external enclosure (You can buy enclosures from your local Best Buy, MicroCenter, or electronics store) that fits your hard drive model, and transfer the data to the extra computer you CAN access.

However; if the laptop is fairly new, and the charge port doesn't wiggle or move at all (An indication of the piece becoming dislodged), then the problem could lie in the power adapter itself. Try purchasing a notebook AC adapter from an online site like Newegg.com or TigerDirect.com. They come with multiple attachments to fit a plethora of different devices, including a wide range of laptops

Transfer data from a dead laptop to a new laptop


Do you have a usb to SATA connector? If so you can plug the old drive into the USB slot and it will act as a slave so you can pull the contents from the old drive to the new. The adapter is about 25.00 or If it was me I would invest into a pocket USB hard drive case that you can put your old drive into perminatly so you can always have a external hard drive for back up later after yo uhave moved the data over and reformatted it. The case is $25-$40.00.

You can click on your Contacts tab or button in Outlook and then go to the File menu Import and Export. Next choose Export to a file. Next under create a file type you should probably choose second option of Comma separated values(Windows). Next choose window make sure your Contacts are highlighted and click Next. Now you should name the file and choose to save it to a flash drive if you have one. Click Next and then click Finish. Just take the file you saved to your new laptop and go to your Contacts and choose Import and Export again. Choose import from other program or file. Next choose Comma separated values(Windows). Next locate where you have saved the file. Choose to allow duplicates or not. Click Next. Make sure Contacts are highlighted and click Next. You should be able to continue now to you see Finish. Hope this helps.
