    DVD drive is stuck, tried the paper clip in the emergency eject hole and no luck. Also tried prying open with a letter opener while using a paper clip and the eject button on the keyboard.



    I am about to go buy a new drive, but thought I would check with you smart guys. Thanks a ton!

Hi adpelle
is the disc stuck in a cd /dvd drive draw ?

(if so there a small pin hole on the cd / dvd unit you can push a paper clip into it to open the draw .
it's on the left under the draw this will eject the disc in side )

if not disc in draw can you post back more details of this disc and what the problem is .

reagrds

Head is stuck or i think it is dead


You may be able to get the data off of it. You'll need another computer with an IDE port and a hard disk big enough to take any data that you may be able to recover off of your old drive -- hook your dead hard disk up to it as slave ( you can see how to configure your drive as slave here )
Put the old disk in the freezer overnight and then put an ice pack on it (put a towel in between so it doesn't condensate and get the hard disk wet) to keep it cool while you try to get the data off of it.
Be sure NOT to touch the circuit board that is on the bottom of the old hard disk to anything metal or you might short it out. If the computer recognizes the old hard disk; you're in luck, copy the data off to the new computer's internal hard disk as fast as you can; your old drive may die completely at any time.

How can get rid from Thinkpoint


A "Thinkpoint" is a computer-virus. On a virus-free computer, Google-search for 'remove thinkpoint'
to get some good advice.

Or, follow best practises, which state that you can never remove 100% of a computer virus.

So, disconnect the old disk-drive, and purchase a new disk-drive.
Install Windows onto the new disk-drive.
Install anti-virus software on the new disk-drive.
Connect the old disk-drive as a "slave" device.
Copy all your data files from "old" to "new".
Use the anti-virus software to scan the "old" disk-drive.
Completely "wipe" the old disk-drive, and then use it as a "backup" drive,
e.g., once a day/week/fortnight, copy everything from your 'My Documents' folder to that "old" drive.

When bootin up my dell optiplex170l says cant find sata, i messed about with some settings on bios screen but cant get it to work... it had virus so i put a disk in to sort it out but accidentlly turned pc...


At this point, it might be good to take your computer to a qualified technician, before you make things "worse".

Restart your computer.
Enter BIOS SETUP.
Select LOAD BIOS DEFAULTS.
Select to SAVE the settings.
This may eliminate the 'SATA' message.

Given that a new disk-drive (SATA or EIDE) will be about $50 for 200GB to 500GB, I recommend that you buy a new disk-drive, and reinstall Windows. Then, connect the "old" disk-drive as a "slave" disk-drive, and copy all your "stuff" from the "old" disk-drive to the "new" disk-drive. It never hurts to have *TWO* copies of your files.

Hi, Had my printer on old computer, when I went to put in on new computer the alarm light comes on and nothing else works.


Before connecting the printer to the new computer you will need to install the drivers using the printer disk.

If the printer disk is too old, or if you have misplaced the disk you will need to go to the printer manufacturer website, find support page, enter printer model, and download updated driver.

Connect printer only after installing driver.

If the printer is too old, it may not be compatible with Vista or newer operative systems.

You have to have the software that backed up your files to disk installed on the computer, the same software has to restore the files. For example, Nero will not restore files created by Slysoft. Good Luck.

Hi there


Hello
that depends
is the old disk a IDE disk?
do the new computer have a IDE port on the motherboard?
if so you can put it in your new computer. but you cant move your OS and use the same disk. you can use is as storage.
I quess that your new computer has sata right? and I think its a bad idea to move your maxtor disk to the new computer because it can slow your PC down.

Good luck

Copy files from old computer and transfer to new computer


Although Vista comes with an Easy File Transfer Wizard it is not compatible with Windows 98.

You will need a CD burning program such as Nero Burning Suite or Creative CD Writer or here is a link to a FREE one.
