Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook

1 Answer

Windows Vista not loading

Had a recent problem with a memory stick stuck in the drive. Got files transferred and then worked it out and unstuck from the slot. Also in the process Shockwave updated itself. Shut it down to get the stick unstuck. Took the battery out and unplugged it. Now it won't load Windows Vista back up. Suggestions. Have tried to reboot and no luck.

FIRST OF ALL YOU SHOULD

  • REMOVE THE BATTERY COMPLETELY
  • LEAVE IT TO STAND FOR ABOUT 15-20 MINS,
  • TAKE CLOSE LOOK AT THE USB PORT AS ITS LIKELY TO BE DAMAGED,
IF IT IS, THEN CAREFULLY REMOVE ANY DEBRIS WITH SOME TWWZERS AND ENSURE THAT NONE OF THE INTERNAL PINS ARE TOUCHING
  • REMOVE ANY OTHER USB DEVICES
  • REFIT BATTERY AND BOOT THE SYSTEM ,PRESS F8 AND SELECT LAST GOOD CONFIGURATION
WHAT YOU HAVE JUST DONE IS REDUCED THE CHANCES OF DAMAGING ANY FURTHER HARDWARE I.E. YOUR SYSTEM BOARD , AND STARTED THE SYSTEM AS IT WERE BEFORE THE SHOCKWAVE UPDATE,
IF EVERYTHING SEEMS OK AT THIS POINT ,YOU SHOULD NOT USETHE DODGY FLASHDRIVE AND CHECK YOUR WINDOWS IS UP TO DATE.
HOPE THIS HELPS

How do I use a memory stick to transfer homework on a laptop to my computer


Hi,

You will need to connect your memory stick to your laptop where the homework is stored. When you connect it, you should get a message asking what you want to do with the memory stick. If you cancel this and go to My Computer (if on Windows XP or Computer if on Vista or Windows 7), you should see your memory stick listed there under removeable devices. If it is not there, then there is a connection problem. Try removing and reconnecting the memory stick.

Once your memory stick is connected, go to where your homework is stored. Right click on the file, go to "send to" and then select your memory stick. The file should then copy over. If there are more files then do the same. Once completely copied over, you can remove your memory stick.

You then need to do connect the memory stick to your other computer. Go to My Computer and then open the drive under removeable devices. Select the files for your homework. Right click on any of them, choose copy. Go to where you want to save the files, right click and paste. They files should copy over.

Hope that is helpful and answers your query

Thanks

Click to select the files/folders.
Choose "Copy Files".
Copy into your "My Music" folder on your new computer.

Document transfer from vista hard drive to memory stick


4gb is not enough space to hold the entire My Documents directory unless you have an extremely small amount of data in it. If you take many photo's it wont be long before My Documents is too big to fit. Suggest that you back up this directory to a set of CDs or DVDs,

If you want to update a memory stick just copy My Documents from Vista to the memory stick. Vista will ask if you want to overwrite. Click [on overwrite all] and the job is done.
