Not that i know of but i do know there is an adaptore out there that you can hook up to a working computer with the problem hard drive to it make it a slave and copy the files off it but you need to know what file types you need to back up that's why i tell someone to put all files for every program to one location you need to learn that it will help you out in the future.

How can I turn off safe mode


In order to turn off safe mode, you just have to reboot your computer. If it returns to safe mode then likely you have an issue that is preventing windows from starting properly. If you recently added hardware or software to the computer, you want to remove that as a first step to troubleshooting.

I have a Toshiba satellite L755-s5153 when I turn it on it says "windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. to fix the problem:" but I don't have the original disk...


Starting Windows 7 in Safe Mode is an excellent next step when starting Windows normally is not possible. Safe Mode only starts the most important Windows 7 processes so, depending on the problem you're having, you might be able to troubleshoot or even fix the problem from here.
To begin entering Windows 7 Safe Mode, turn on or restart your PC.
Just before the Windows 7 splash screen shown above appears, press the F8 key to enterAdvanced Boot Options.

Next you can restore your system from a previous known working date from your restore function. If you are using Windows 7 you may follow these step to restore.

1. Start
2. Go to "All Programs"
3. Select "Accessories"
4. Select "System Tools"
5. Select "System Restore"

Do hope this helps.

My HP A735W is turning on but stays in power save mode and no key board or mouse function


I think the issue is your monitor. If the monitor constantly says Power Save Mode and not let anything else display then the monitor might be bad. See if we can isolate the problem by the steps below.

Try booting up in Safe Mode and see if the monitor works ok.

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look different to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this is normal. If it works ok in safe mode then the monitor is ok and we might have an issue with a setting.


Try connecting another monitor to your computer. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor works ok, then your original monitor is bad. If the Borrowed monitor does the same thing as your original monitor then the issue is with the computer (possibly the video card).

Acer aspire one netbook touchpad wouldnt work could only use with left click - trying to fix managed to disable touchpad by mistake now curser wont work how can i enablei it when cant use curset? please


If possible try to connect a USB mouse and use that to enable the touchpad...
After that reinstall the drivers for the touchpad the issue should be fixed... Even if you still have the issue then call the computer manufacturer.

If you dont get a USB mouse.. Then turn on the computer get into safe modem by tapping F8... Try to check in safe mode whether the touchpad is working.. If its working reinstall the drivers the issue will be fixed

My pc starting problem


You can try starting win98 in safe mode, keep shift key pressed on startup to force safe mode. Then, If you can start in safe mode you may try to troubleshoot the problem uninstalling software recently installed, looking for devices that are not working properly in device menager, and eventually performing a virus scan and a system check using Norton utilities or a similar program. If the PC doesnt even start in safe mode I suggest re-installing the system from Win98 CD.

Hope this may help
