From your description of the problem, it seems that the partition table of your Hard Disk Drive may be corrupt, or was damaged by using a low-level partition editing tool.However, it's very possible to recover any lost or damaged partitions using a tool called TestDisk on Linux to resolve your issue.By default, it's not installed, and you will have to install it yourself from the terminal(Access it via CTRL+ALT+T Key combination) and type in the command:
sudo apt-get install testdisk
You will be required to enter your administrator password, and you will also need an internet connection to download the package files.It's about 200 KB in size.
To launch the application with administrator privileges( Authentication needed since you will be modifying the partition tables of your HDD), open a terminal window as illustrated above or go to Applications>Accessories>Terminal and type in the command:
The application will run in the terminal window.Steps for recovering any lost partitions:
1.Choose create log file 2.Select which device to use(It may be /dev/sdb , but use the size of the HDD to guide you). 3.Under partition type,select INTEL/PC Partition
Choose 'Analyze' then 'Proceed' then select 'Search'. TestDisk should now scan your device for partitions (If it hasn't already discovered them). This may take a little while.
TestDisk should now list a series of partitions
Select the partitions you want to recover and select Apply.
Note that for the changes to be effective, you must write the changes back to the partition table.
NB: If you are unsure of anything in this solution, please give your external hard disk drive to an experienced computer repair specialist and have him/her do the partition recovery for you.Don't risk data loss when it can be avoided.
Hope this solves your problem. Have a great time ahead.
You will want to check in your device manager to see if the network card is not being recognized and you will be able to update the driver there.
For windows XP, rght click on my computer, select properties and then select "ahrdware" and device manager.
For windows VIsta and 7, go to your control panel and open Device manager there.
Once open, you should see a network adapter with a yellow question mark or yellow exclamation mark beside it.
In either case, make sure the driver disk is in your disk drive, right click on the network adapter and select "update driver"; then just select the "recommended" options and follow through.
If this still doesn't work, try uninstalling the device from the device manager and then install the drivers using the disk.
I just want to tell you that once your computer formatted then all the drivers for the you usb adapter removed from your computer and you required to reinstall the drivers for you computer.
1. I can recommend you that you got the CD for your usb adapter. You can install the usb adapter on your computer with the help of CD.
2. Secondly in any case if lost the CD i am providing you a link for your adapter you go to this website and download it from this website according to the version for your adapter
either download the computers network driver on another computer and put them on a disk or usb drive and copy them over or pop in a network card that you have the disk for and download the driver that way.
If you have a regular(wired) LAN port on your computer, you can download the drivers and install them from the manufacturer's web site.
Otherwise, the easiest way would be to download the drivers on a different computer, copy them to a USB Flash drive(Such as the SanDisk Cruzer Micro), and use the Flash drive to install the drivers on your computer.
