I cant find it on my computer

Please be more specific with your question. If your trying to connect your phone to your computer you will need a usb cable with a mini usb end for your phone. To access your phone you will also need to find the manufacture of your phone on the web and download the specific software onto your computer for your phone. Once you plug your phone in, your computer will recognise the phone and you will have access to anything you need to do. Hope this helps.

A technician download a microsoft word professional 2010 to my laptop but it is not authenticated and my daughter updated the windows, i cant open my microsoft word even my files on usb

You have to own the software. Without a Product Key, you cannot use it

You can use open office, which is free and does everything Microsoft Office does, but it's free! and fully compatible!

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.

Cant access files on my harddrive


It sounds like either the enclosure or the drive inside has failed.

If the enclosure has failed and you don't have any crucial files on it that you don't already have elsewhere, contact Maxtor(Seagate) for a warranty replacement.

If the enclosure has failed and you DO have important files on it, try having your local PC shop move the hard drive into a new enclosure, if that works you're done, buy the new enclosure.

If the new enclosure fails, your drive is damaged and you will need a pro to help get back your files. If this is the case, reply back with you location(Country, State and City) and I will pass along recommendations for your neck of the woods.

Hope this helps FixYa,

I cant put my pictures from my w580i on to the computer help please

Hello Katie!

First of all, connect your mobile phone to your PC (using USB cable or Bluetooth). If using a USB cable, you can access your mobile phone through your PC and so you can cut or copy/paste your pictures from your phone to your PC (create a specific folder for a group of pictures for easier access the next time). If using a Bluetooth, be sure you activate both devices' (your PC and your mobile) Bluetooth and then access your pictures at your mobile phone then right-click each picture and choose send via Bluetooth then select your PC's Bluetooth. You may need to enter a passcode, try 1 or 0. Or refer to your mobile phone's user manual. Hope this helps...
