    Hard drives do not include nor require driver CDs, as every modern operating system (including Vista) has drivers built-in. The only software included with the drive would be the Data Lifeguard Tools, which is used to diagnose and test the drive, not assist in installation of the drive. Unfortunately, Western Digital has not made a Vista compatible version of the software.

    The installation manual can be found here:

My daughters c300 gets smart failture predicted says f1 screen goes blank please help


Hmm, I hope for you that my hunch turns out to be wrong. That S.M.A.R.T failure is related to the laptop's hard disk drive. And the failure is not just predicted to happen soon; it sounds like it is happening. Something is wrong with the hard drive, and that something is unlikely to go away.
When this appears, you should press the F1 key and hope Windows starts. If it does, do something ASAP to save any important documents your daughter might have on the computer. You might take it to a neighbor, friend, relative, or shop you trust and have them transfer those documents to, say, a USB key for temporary safekeeping. Then it's time to replace the hard drive inside with a new one (no, they're not extremely expensive), re-install Windows and other programs, and then transfer the documents back onto the PC.
If the laptop just stops working after pressing F1, it's perhaps too late. A more experienced PC technician can see if he/she can save those aforementioned documents or data from the misbehaving drive. Or if you daughter says, "Nah, there was nothing on there I need to recover," then you can skip straight to replacing the hard drive (and reinstalling everything).

Good luck!

There isnt really a limit of the number of files, but there is a limit on space.

If you go into "my computer"(windows xp) or "computer" (windows vista/7)
and right click on the icon for your SanDisk. Choose properties, and it should give you a nice pie graph to show your free space.

If there is free space left, then it is safe to say that there is something else going on.

If not, you are out of space!

Cheers!

Hard drive locked with password


if you can access the bios and boot from floppy or cd you might try making a linux cd or a bootable usb using knoppix. the only thing is you would need perhaps another pc to download the actual knoppix distribution and make it bootable. there are resources available in the web if u just type google. this is actually how i accessed my computer after a master boot record fail. what happens is even if you have a password on your profile in windows, knopix actually bypasses that because its a different architecture. knoppix begins from root folder and plugs your hard drive on to a subfolder mount automatically. knoppix is also similar to use to windows and it would basically allow you to backup your files, or whatever u deem important which are usually located in my documents folder. my documents can be accessed from your drive, to documents and settings, to whatever your profile name is, to my documents.

I have a computer with a dead hard drive. I would


See if you can boot a CD or DVD with Ubuntu on it.
They are generally recognized very well on IBM and Lenovo laptop computers. You will be able to run the OS entirely off the CD without touching the hard drive, access the internet, etc.

You may be able to see and mount the file system of your dead or failing hard drive and select your working files off it.... Don't bother to recover your OS, or products for which you already have installation media or other backups....

Just grab your pictures, music, documents, etc. that matter to you.

If the disk you have uses S.M.A.R.T. drive monitoring, then you can try using the disk utility to read its state ( System > Administration > Disk Utility ). This should tell you whether you disk is dead or something else may have happened to your system to make it look your hard drive died.

Good luck!

YES HOW HARD IS IT TO REFORMAT MY HARD DRIVE.


When you format a computer hard drive you will lose everything that is on the drive. Therefore, it is very important to back up anything you might want later. Additionally, if you are going to be formatting and installing XP you need to make sure you have the discs for any applications or third party hardware you use since you will need to re-install your programs and drivers after re-installing Windows. Step2Take a moment to think of anything that you have on the computer that you wouldn't want to lose. Generally, you probably want everything in your My Documents folder, and you also want to save things like your favorites or bookmarks from your Web browser. Remember that each user on the computer has his or her own My Documents folder, Desktop items and Favorites/Bookmarks. Step3Save everything to a CD, DVD or a hard drive that you won't be formatting Its pretty easy in other words

Im looking for the jumper settings on a compaq motherboared. its a presario 7478


hello CAVdesert,
I don't think you ever have to change the jumper settings on the motherboard.You may need to change in few cases but otherwise, changing motherboard jumper settings is not recommended.
However, if you need to configure the jumper settings for your Hard Drive, CD/DVD Drive etc, Please refer to the following document.

Jumper Settings for the Installation of Hard Disks and CD, CDRW, and DVD Drives

Pc died


Hello, I have had similar problems with that same motherboard in the past and have found that resetting the cmos (see users manual) or just taking the battery of the motherboard for a few minutes can solve this. CAUTION please remove the power lead on your tower before touching any components inside, and earth yourself first by touching metal.. as static discharge kills pc components..
Hope this helps.....
Tony.
