Transit 125 t350 starts but very slow to drive


I'm assuming it's not a slipping clutch - the engine revs a lot but the speed doesn't grow accordingly. Check the high pressure pump and the injectors, clean the fuel tank and replace the fuel filters.

My nokia 7210 supernova phohe work is very slow how can i use fast


I think you device is slow because you have exhausted or about to exhaust the available memory space. Increase the amount of memory spaces available (both on the phone and any other external storage device) by deleting or backing up some of your files. And be sure you phone is not affected with any virus because that can also affect it.

Help! XP stopped recognizing my external hard drive. It has worked fine for two years and then suddenly: My Laptop no longer "dings" when I plug in the external hard drive. There are no unknown...


No question is silly dear, problems are there and we are in this site to help.

Yes, you mentioned that the said device works fine with your desktop, then it is probably not the problem with your device. You have also said that your tried formatting the os. Good.

Hope your pc, laptop and the memory device are disinfected with a good, licensed and updated antivirus.

Check, if Universal Serial Bus Controllers (corresponding to the nos. of total usb port present in the machine) are present and enabled both in the device manager and the bios as well and set to Hi-Speed if it is Full-Speed.

Well, have you tried formatting the memory stick/device? Format it and see if it works.

Next, please change the usb connectivity cable using/attached to the device and see.

Another thing while connecting an external storage device like ext-hdd. The external usb storage devices that gets connected with a usb cable, in some rare cases needs to be connected as a usb-master or usb-slave [you can see many external usb drives comes with a splitted or dual usb port connector cable, this is either for connecting two usb device or to connect as master when used as a single drive], therefore use such cable to connect and use alternated ports, and see which works.

Now, if all above fails, it then might be the problem with your external drive, i guess.

Best to seek help of your system admin/vendor.

My garmin nuva 1300 takes a really long time to load points of interest that i search for. For example, I typed in "Ocean City" to determine how to get to the beach, but it took a good ten...


I have a Garmin Dezl - which gets slower with less available memory. I can simulate slow behavior by planning a very long route - reducing available memory to the extreme. Unfortunately the Nuvi & Dezl (based on the Nuvi) doesn't have a function to clear up memory space.

In my situation I had to master reset the Garmin to get memory back. This clears all user data (including all POI's, favourites) and restores the factory state. A master reset works by holding the right bottom corner of the screen while pressing the power on button once.

Its the ABS Computer, it is getting to be a common problem now, I have had that happen to me and I almost hit a car. I would unplug the abs until you can get it fixed, the plug is in the box that the brake lines run to from the master cylinder. The ABS light will be on but its better than rear ending someone.

HOW TO CHANGE CODE ON A MASTER LOCK 5400D THANKS.


Can't unless it is a lock that allows this. You don't say it is such a lock so I tell you you cant.

If it is a lock with the ability to have the combo changed, do you have the key?

Can i install 2 harddisk drive in one computer, how, does it have any effect in my pc, i have two low capacity disk, and i want to have bigger space, thanks


yes you may be able to,but it depends on some things and how you want to add them.

if you want to have them as an internal device ,ie in the case and always available with your operating sytem, then you need to know what conection they require to be plugged in. some examples are sata,ide,scuzzi.most latest hard drives are sata ,the most popular are ide though.im guessing you most likely have ide hd's.

good thing with them is you can connect two harddrives on the same ide cable.you have to set 1 up as master the other as slave.this is done by adjusting the jumpers on the physical hard disk.the jumpers are located on the bottom corner of the hd next to the power and ide interface.their willl also be a diagram to show how to set master/slave on the hd in most cases.

benefits are more storage and speed but in the above case because you use the same cable for both disks.

if you dont know alot and are not confident in installing them personally and just require more space,i iwould suggest buying a cheap kit $20 ,and using your spare \hd as an external usb disk.

if ive assumed wrong or you need more help ,let me know

good luck and let us know how it pans out

Posted by Decoder1 on Feb 25, 2009 I also had a problem with XP not recognizing the hard drive. The USB Mass Storage Device was reporting a Code 10 (Device cannot start). Ryockey provided the solution in that the drive pins can be offset by one set when connected to the interface. Be careful to get the pins aligned correctly, it worked for me. I also have my drive jumper set for Master. Thanks Robert!
