Jetflash 64gb not getting detected

This is somewhat hard to troubleshoot. It could be the very old Windows XP, it could be that you need a driver for it because you are using xp, it could be that the partition tables are damaged, and the device needs to be reformatted...

My first step would be to go to and look up your device. There are tools that can help you there.

If the drive does not respond on any usb ports on your computer (yes try them all), Then I would either boot to a live linux cd such as Xubuntu and check the device out on that operating system, or I would find another pc to try the device on.

Since i had my laptop reformatted it can no longer deect memory card. pls help

Contact the manufacturer of the laptop. Most likely you are missing drivers. When you format a computer, you need to put everything back on it. If you have the original driver disks that came with it, install those. If not, you can probably find them on Dell, Hp, or whatever your manufacturer's site is.

I reformatted my computer and i cant get drivers

If you have linksys hardware install the cd that came with hardware and get to linksys website and download latest driver. Reformatted cleans drive to zip data and you needed to reload XP to get it going so anything you installed after the system purchase you will have to reinstall.

Cannot complete installation of windows xp home edition

Have you added or changed your computer's hardware since you purchased your computer? Your Dell reinstallation disk will probably only work for the original configuration of your machine. If this is the case, dust off your old parts, remove your newer parts, then reinstall your old ones to get your system back to its original configuration. Once there, try the reinstallation again.
If this does not apply to you (or you can't get it to work), you can always purchase the operating system new (from newegg, tigerdirect or similar) and install from a disk that will have all of the drivers you need. OEM versions are cheapest, but you are on your own for support in the event of a problem. I hope this helps.

How to install XP in toshiba Satellite L45-S7423 laptop

You cannot uninstall Windows Vista, but you can reinstall your previous operating system, which then replaces Windows Vista. To reinstall your old operating system, you must have the original installation disc. Back up your programs and files, insert the installation disc into your computer, and then reinstall the old operating system. To regain the hard disk space used by Windows Vista, reformat the disk during the reinstallation process. After reinstalling your previous operating system, reinstall your programs and files.
