First things First!
1) You have a bad hard drive or bad sector on it. depending on driver WD or Seagate use the tools that came with it. test.
2) If you dont know how to perform a format full drive read.

other than this you got a bad Hard drive .
Good Luck

Can i make a bootible usb for my dell diminsion 2400 i get a disskette 0 error seek failure

bootable USB guide, here we assume that you are using either Vista or Windows 7 to create a bootable USB.
1. Insert your USB (4GB+ preferable) stick to the system and backup all the data from the USB as we are going to format the USB to make it as bootable.

2. Open elevated Command Prompt. To do this, type in CMD in Start menu search field and hit Ctrl + Shift + Enter. Alternatively, navigate to Start > All programs >Accessories > right click on Command Prompt and select run as administrator.

3. When the Command Prompt opens, enter the following command:
DISKPART and hit enter.
LIST DISK and hit enter.
Once you enter the LIST DISK command, it will show the disk number of your USB drive. In the below image my USB drive disk no is Disk 1.

4. In this step you need to enter all the below commands one by one and hit enter. As these commands are self explanatory, you can easily guess what these commands do.
SELECT DISK 1 (Replace DISK 1 with your disk number)
(Format process may take few seconds)
Don't close the command prompt as we need to execute one more command at the next step. Just minimize it.

5. Insert your Windows DVD in the optical drive and note down the drive letter of the optical drive and USB media. Here I use "D" as my optical (DVD) drive letter and "H" as my USB drive letter.

6. Go back to command prompt and execute the following commands:
D:CD BOOT and hit enter. Where "D" is your DVD drive letter.
CD BOOT and hit enter to see the below message.
(Where "H" is your USB drive letter)

7. Copy Windows DVD contents to USB.
You are done with your bootable USB. You can now use this bootable USB as bootable DVD on any computer that comes with USB boot feature (most of the current motherboards support this feature).
Note that this bootable USB guide will not work if you are trying to make a bootable USB on XP computer.

boot from a usb drive

hope it helps

When i switch on computer ACER logo appears with message along bottom of screen Del: Enter Set-up F12 Boot Menu Computer is frozen, cannot go any further

Press Del - you will enter the BIOS - in there check that the hard disk is recognized and the boot order is as follows: 1 cd-rom, 2 hard disk.
If everything is ok but you still cannot boot in Windows then it has been corrupted. Recover your files using a Linux Live-CD like  and reinstall.

I recently installed new hard drive and have no sound

Identify your sound board - visit the manufacturer website ... search your model and get the driver. You can look in the Device Manager for this information. You may also wish to update or download the driver from within the device manager.

You may wish to go to www.pcpitstoplcom and have your computer scanned. The website will provide you with a free report on all aspects of your computer, software installed, memory, names of components and what drivers are installed and or missing.

This is a free service of PCPITSTOP, though they do sell stuff there. It is certainly worthwhile to take advantage of this free service.

If you need additional help with this, please let me know.

I hope you find what you need

Yes. With a typical default configuration you should keep an amount of disk space free on the C: drive as this is where your virtual memory or page file sits. When the computers ram fills up, the OS writes some of that memory to disk (virtual memory) so that it can free up real hardware memory (which is fast) for running apps. When disk space is restricted on the C: drive memory management becomes more innefficient as things need to be erased from memory and then reloaded rather than just swapped from the virtual memory on the disk. Worse than slowness if you completely run out of space your system will freeze up.

You should make sure your c: drive does not fill up. Also if you have another drive (such as a d:drive) with more space you can change where the virtual memory resides and place it there so that it can grow as it needs to.

Mouse jumping around!

firstly: Is there any other electrical equipment placed near it, like a TV, or radio, or (unshielded) loudspeakers, or the little power supplies from router/speakers/printer etc? If so, move these away from your PC and/or monitor. also if they are optical mice/mouse... then some surfaces "scatter the laser and this causes a jump. secondly: make sure there is no driver conflict, (post another question here too get me to go into details...) and i have heard of this prob happening with some PCI graphics drivers... thirdly: mice viruses are getting very pop, now when you cleaned out your HDD did you actually delete the partition, format and reload xp etc?? cause overwriting will not simple solve the trijan prob! anyhow try: for some cool stuff, to stop your mouse ADD problem. good luck.
