I'm trying to backup files on one laptop onto another. Is this possible if one of the laptops (the one where the files are on) won't even run Windows? If so, how do I connect the 2 laptops?

Hello and welcome to FixYa.
The only way to get your files out from the laptop when it does not work, is to remove the hard drive, from the computer, put the drive into a case that turns it into a USB / external hard drive, and then you just plug that into the other laptop and all the files show up under the new drives in my computer / computer folder on your desktop / start menu.

You need to have the Notebook in a Working Condition for a CD Back up or Online Back Up. Unfortunately, if the One of the Notebook is not even working, you would not be able to make a Back Up.

Dell inspirion 5520 laptop won't turn on


For this kind of issue, please follow up the following steps to check:

1.confirm the battery and ac adapter connect the laptop normally.Maybe the bad connect lead to this problem. If there are no lights when you turn on laptop, one of possible reason is that your adapter is malfunction.

2.the second possible cause is laptop dc jack failure. If the dc jack is broken or loose, you are required to replace it or repair it.

3.Another possible reason is that there is something wrong with laptop motherboard. For this situation, it includs two kinds of possibility,a failure in an electronic circuit and BGA malfunction.

For more detailed reasons and solutions, please have a look at the following article:http://www.ifitjams.com/lappower.htm

If you verify your laptop adapter is dead and you plan to order a new one, I recommend one for you on the basis of your laptop model:

I'm getting a popup "windows


Modern disk-drives have built-in performance-counters and self-diagnostic capabilities.

These 'SMART' disk-drives can tell when the disk-drive is not performing "optimally";
it's a sign, as Windows indicates, that the disk-drive is *SOON* to completely *FAIL* to work.

Backup your files (and E-mail and contacts and music) to DVD-recordable media, or to an external file-storage system. Then, on another computer, "test" to ensure that you can read that backup copy, before you do anything to the "original" files.

Then, buy a replacement disk-drive, install it, and reinstall Windows onto it,
reinstall your anti-virus, reinstall MS Office, run Windows Update several times,
and finally reload your files from your "backup" device.

System not functioning in my laptop?


If you didnt backup your files and you need to reinstall your operating system (or run a system recovery), you have a hard choice to make...delete the files while recovering, or try to treat the infection and save your data. A good technician can save your files and fix the machine. Do you have a hard drive enclosure and a second computer to connect it to? If you do, then theres hope. Otherwise, make that painful choice.

Mouse and keyboard hangs while system still runs in monitor.


try this...


Use Acer eRecovery or your eRecovery Disc. If you do not have eRecovery, you may buy it from acer for $30.

Use your "Upgrade you Vista Experience" CD, reinstall Windows, (Use your Product Key and Activate Windows, I recommend using Phone) and download the drivers for your computer (Windows should find most drivers.

To backup your files, use a USB Thumb drive, start in safe mode and copy the files to the thumb drive. (To start in safemode, restart your computer, after you see the Acer Splash screen, press F8 until you see a menu. Using your keyboard, navigate to Safe Mode. Windows should start now. If Safe Mode does not work, you can't backup your files easily unless you run your HDD in another computer as a Slave.

Updating Quickbooks on Vista OS


There are a couple of things going on here.
First, and most important, Qb 2005 was not designed to run on Vista. Vista was barley even in the planning stages when 2005 was programmed. Vista will probably run it, but in a compatability mode ( pretending to be an older version of Windows), but updating the program will be nightmarish at best because the updates are pointing to files that are either 1) no longer used by Windows or 2) the versions and functionality of the files has changed.
My best advice- restore the backup on an XP box, or get a later version of QuickBooks that will run on Vista.
