I have a 2 yr. old dell xps m140
I purchased a wd external hard drive because my c drive has no disk space available
I'm not sure I was getting programs sent to the external drive, I right clicked and hit send to e drive, don't know if that was sufficient but regardless my c drive didn't free up so I began to delete away madly
I may have deleted something I shouldn't have. Now I get the I/O error message and the puter seems to have slowed down a bit.
In addition, when I go to add/remove programs it says wait while the list populates but nothing happens. The list never comes up. Please, please someone help me!!!

You do not say which operating system you are using.
A blue screen can have many causes, so you need to undertake an elimination process to identify the cause.
Most importantly, do not repeatedly keep trying to boot if blue screen keeps appearing, as this could lead to hasrdware failure. It is important to identify and fix the fault as soon as possible.
If you read the full error message, there will usually be an indication of the likely cause of the crash as well as some suggested remedies.
Typical causes are:
Conflict with newly installed software Driver conflict or corruption Malware infection Insufficient Hard Drive space Operating system corruption Hard Drive fault Overheating Memory corruption Graphics card fault
Each of these will have a different remedy.
Start by studying the error message in more detail, try the suggested remedy options, then post again with more specific information, if necessary.
1. You need to check how much free disk space is available on your laptop.
2. You need to check what duplicated files you have on both the laptop and the external hard drive and which is the latest version.
3. You need to decide to move the latest versions of the data files from the external hard drive to the laptop. This automatically delete these from the external hard drive. The older versions on the external hard drive can be deleted.
4. Now you need to check how much data is stored on your external hard drive.
5. If the amount of data stored on the external hard drive exceeds the available disk space on the laptop, then you cannot copy these files to the laptop.
6. If you have sufficient disk space on the laptop you can copy the data from the external hard drive to the laptop. I suggest you make a folder to copy this data to it.
You can now delete all the data from the external hard drive or you can format the external hard drive to make a clean external hard drive.
The error suggests that there is no bootable device available. Check if you are able to get to BIOS. Check for the hard drive . If hard drive is listed in BIOS, please run the diagnostics on the hard drive. If you get any error messages, then it could be an issue with the hard drive.
The virus could have scrambled and or removed your Windows operating files on your hard disk.
If you can get into your BIOS and it still detect your hard disk, then I suggest your delete your hard disk partition, create a new one and install Windows again including all your device drivers (video, audio, network etc.) and latest Windows service pack and your programs.
Unfortunately if there is no driver for Vista, then your out of luck. Since Vista is a widely used OS and getting bigger, then the MyBook manufactures must create a Vista driver soon or they will be in danger of going out of business. Just wait and periodically check the MyBook website for new drivers.
