Hi,

The drives can be formatted while you install new operating system. Boot the system with an Operating system disk and follow the instructions to format the hard drive and then install the new operating system.

Cisco VPN doesnt get connected through DI-524UP router. Worked fine until recently for both the laptops we use. Log indicates Receive: Purging stale cached fragment(s). Direct connected on the Motorola...


Cisco VPN
Upgrade your router to the latest firmware. You can download firmware at http://www.dlink.com.au/tech/ .
Disable all Firewall Software (ZoneAlarm, Windows XP Firewall, etc.).
Configuring PC running VPN Client Software:
Step 1 Disable all Firewall Software (ZoneAlarm, Windows XP Firewall, etc.).
Step 2 Change IP Address to be outside of the routers DHCP Pool (i.e. 192.168.0.99). By default the DHCP pool is 192.168.0.100 - 192.168.0.199.
Step 3 Configure Cisco VPN Client - Connection Properties.
Step 4 Check Enable Transparent Tunneling.
Step 5 Allow IPSec over UDP ( NAT/PAT).
Configuring Router using the Web-based configuration:
Step 1 Open the Web Configuration Page by entering 192.168.0.1 into your web browser. Enter username (admin) and your password (blank by default).
Step 2 Check the Status tab and make sure that you are running the latest version of firmware. If not, upgrade firmware before proceeding.
Step 3 Click on the Miscellaneous button on the Tools tab. Enable both PPTP and IPSec.
Step 4 Click Apply.
Step 5 Click on the Virtual Servers button on the Advanced tab.
Step 6 Enable IPSec from the list and configure as follows:
Private IP: IP Address of the PC running Cisco VPN Client
Protocol: UDP
Private Port: 500
Public Port: 500
Schedule: Always.
Step 7 Click Apply and then Continue.
Step 8 Enable PPTP from the list and configure as follows:
Private IP: IP Address of the PC running Cisco VPN Client
Protocol: TCP
Private Port: 1723
Public Port: 1723
Schedule: Always.
Step 9 Click Apply and then Continue.

Hi My hard drive crashed can it is old can it be


Most likely scenario is the drive is dead, but also the BIOS on your computer is old itself, I believe there are a few BIOS upgrades available for that model, might want to check with Dell support site. If you have access to another computer, there is a way to check your drive. Go to a computer retail store or on Ebay, but a EIDE/SATA to USB adapter. This will allow you to take a hard drive out of the case and attach this adpter to it and plug the usb side into another computer, laptop, doesn't matter...that computer will read the drive as an external hard drive....if the drive is indeed still viable. If it is, this would be a good time to save your files to the other computer for safe keeping until you can get your other system back on its feet.

Acer aspire 5050 hard drive problems


If your computer has been working and when you start it you get the message that there is no hard drive (no boot device), then your hard drive has gone bad.
If you have gone into the bios and don't see either a hard drive or a CD or DVD, then most probably you are looking at a motherboard problem. It is not very common for the hard drive and CD/DVD to go bad at once.

DST Short Status Test (Error detected)


DST stands for Drive Self Test, it means your drive is failing.

I would get a new hard drive and USB enclosure, install new drive in laptop and install windows, then take the old drive and install it in the USB enclosure so you can connect to your laptop when windows is running and restore your files, assuming the drive is not completely dead.

thanks for rating
