    This is a very old PC. It is not worth the time to repair it as it is not compatible with todays demands. I have seen very many where I work and know just what you mean. They all do it eventually. Your money is best spent getting a new PC.

Can not open files on other computers from WD external drive


Actually, I have a similar problem.

If you get an error message that says something like "You do not have permission to access this file" or "Access Denied" then these steps should be a temporary fix:
  1. Go to the menu bar & select Tools>Folder Options
  2. Select the view Tab, & look for "Use Simple File Sharing". Uncheck this (Disable it).
  3. Right-click on your external drive icon & click "Properties". Choose the "Security" tab & click on "Advanced".
  4. Click the "Owner" tab, then select the user from the list below (whatever user you're logged in as). Then check "Replace Owner on subcontainer and objects", & click OK>OK.
You are done! But if you don't need the whole HD, you can do steps 3-4 on whichever folder/file you want to access to reduce time taken.

Remember, this is temporary, meaning if you take the HD to another computer then you will have to repeat the steps to regain access of your HD. Any permanent solution?

Windows xp will not load audio drivers for asus m2n-vm dvi motherboard. realtek alc662


Boot your system & enter the bios. Please, carefully read the instructions at the bottom of page 1-32 in your manual. Make sure your AUDIO is set per instructions. Save & exit the bios. Create a folder on your desktop & name it, Realtek ALC662. Open the link provided; http://www.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=fyD1uSu233yBDeCq Click the driver Download button. Than click the dropdown button & choose WinXP. Left click the + sign next to, AUDIO. Download & save the driver, Realtek ALC662 Audio Driver V5.10.0.5591, 52.96 (MBytes) into the folder you created. Open the folder, Realtek ALC662 & uncompress the .zip file keeping the uncompressed files within the Realtek folder. A new folder will be created & it will be named: RCL. Open windows device manager. Right click once on My computer icon. Slide your mouse down & left click on Properties. Click the Hardware tab, than click on the Device Manager button. Scroll down the list of icons. You should fine something like; Unknown PCI device or just a plain yellow upside down pair shaped icon with question mark or ! mark inside. Rather trying to install by using the CD sound software's setup.exe file we will do a more direct method of installation. Right click once on the unknown PCI device or the yellow pair shaped icon. Left click once on update driver. Windows hardware wizard will open. Click No, not at this time. Than click the next button. Another window will open. Left click once in the circle next to, Install from a list or specific location (Advanced). Than click the next button. Again, another window will open. We want to remove the green check mark next to, Search removable media (floppy, CD-ROM...). Click the green check mark once & it will go away. Click the browse button, click the + sign next to my computer. Find the desktop folder you created, Realtek ALC662. Open it. Left click once on the RCL folder so it is high-lighted. Than click the OK button Windows search within the RCL folder & will install the correct driver software automatically. Once completed. Close all opened windows & restart you?re system. Test your audio. If you intend to use a mic, you will need to set this up through windows control panel. Open, Sounds and audio device. Good luck& thanks for using Fixya. Mike

It takes my PC a very long time to boot up, what can i do?



If you have installed any softwares recently it might slow down the pc as many softwares will install a startup file in order to start faster. You can shut these programs from starting up when the pc starts.
I put 2 steps to resolve this in order of simplicity.

Remove icons from the Startup folder
Some programs open with a shortcut icon in the startup folder (Startup icons). Use the following steps to show any startup icons that might be hidden and remove startup icons from the startup folder:
NOTE: Removing items from the Startup folder does not uninstall the software program.
1. Right-click the Start button, and click Explore . The Windows Explorer window displays with Start Menu already selected.
2. Click the plus sign ( + ) next to Programs .
3. Click Startup . The shortcut icons are listed in the right pane of the window.
4. To show any hidden icons, click Tools , click Folder Options , and click the View tab.
5. Click Show hidden files and folders (Windows XP/ME) or Show all files (Windows 98), and click OK .
6. Click an unwanted startup item in the right pane of the window and drag it to a blank area on the Windows desktop. Release the mouse button to drop the icon onto the desktop.
7. Continue dragging unwanted icons until all unwanted startup icons are on the desktop. Click Yes to any window that display asking to confirm the removal of a read-only file.
8. Close Windows Explorer and restart the computer for the changes to take effect. Delete the startup icons that were moved to the desktop after you are satisfied with the way the software programs are working.
If you find that a particular software program should not have been removed from the Startup folder, double-click the startup menu item to open the Startup window. Then drag the icon from the desktop back into the Startup window.

Do a system restore. Go to start>programs>accessories>system tools>system restore. Pick a day before you started messing around with it.(just kidding) Pick a day back when you still had everything you needed and look for a restore point. Have it do a system restore. After it gets done you should be ok. If this solves your problem PLEASE rate this as fixed. If not, DON'T rate yet just add a comment and I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks.

P.S.- If it solves it, but you still need to resolve the running slow issue, post the request right to me and I'll get you running like new. Take care.
