Question about HP 48gx Calculator

Open Question

I?ve been using an SMI DCE V6 program card in my HP48GX as a Data Collector (doing Survey Fieldwork) for years. It would occasionally ?crash?. After the last ?crash? it could not be reset, so I had to have it repaired. The keyboard was rebuilt internally. In the meanwhile, I borrowed a friends HP48GX and used my DCE V6 program card with a TDS 512K RAM Card. This worked fine for a few days but finally it also ?crashed? with the keyboard freezing. I am now hesitant to use my DCE V6 card in my repaired unit. Do you think my card could be faulty? Could it possibly have caught a virus? (Don?t laugh too loudly; excuse my ignorance in this area). I?d really appreciate your advice. Keith.

How I can transfer my files from a Acterna 5100E OTDR to my laptop? It only has a standard internal flash drive and 9 pin output. I have the original software.

This devices interface is extremely old technology the 9 pin connector is most likely a rs232 serial interface . If your laptop has a 9 pin rs232 interface you may need a DTE to DCE adapter .
if you do not have this old rs232 port on your laptop I think this device a usb to null modem rs232 DB9 Serial DCS Adapter Cable with FTDI.
from my reading of the manual a null modem may be needed

I've had my compaq presario cq61 for about 2-3 years. A while back it would occasionally have a kind of shaky/blinky screen but just in the past week it's like the screen has stopped working.

The problem may be due the graphics card or data cable or backlighting.

The data cable can be severed over time though opening and closing the display. This can be replaced.
The backlighting/inverter dies, some-times the windows desktop screen can be seen if one looks carefully. This can also be replaced.

Try connect your notebook to another computer's monitor via VGA or HDMI out.

If this works then the problem lies with your LCD screen.

Take care!

Can we get the previous data from the memory card after formatting it using a data recovery software ?

Absolutely! When I ran my IT services company for six years, there were two programs we used. What one would miss, the other would catch. Without really tracking the numbers, I'd say we normally recovered around 90% of data formatted. Since you're not running a business and this is [probably] going to be a one-time use issue, then you may not want to purchase more than one.
I used "Recover Lost Data" and "Recover My Files." Each program worked well. Also, here is a link where you can download data recovery programs from If the right column has a link which says "Buy It," then it will cost money, however, if it does NOT have "Buy It," then it's free. I've never tried any of them, but if you don't want to pay the $40 per program I did, you don't have anything to lose by trying some of them.
IMPORTANT: DO NOT save anything to your memory card until you recover your data. If you do, this will decrease your chances of a successful data recovery.
Best of luck to you on this! Please let me know how this works out for you.

Where should acrossover UTP cable are used?

Crossover UTP cable is used from point to point communications between 2 computers or it connects two devices of the same type. For example DTE - DTE or DCE - DCE. DTE stands for data terminal equipment and DCE stands for data circuit terminating equipment.It is connected directly from one computer to the other.
Hope this simple solution could help you to solve your problem. Mam/Sir don't forget me to rate me up I really appreciate what ratings you have given to me. Thanks a lot and God Bless.

Someone is calling my phone and sending random messages i have the number and want to know who it is...the number is 07592893171

Looks like a couple of people have been posting about this phone number calling them. It might be a debt collector or a survey collector. I wouldn't worry about it!

My sandisk M2 4gb disk crashed

Your card has most likely become damaged or corrupted and you will need a data recovery application to try and pull the pictures off of it. I recommend the programs from I have been using them for years with great results.

What you will want to do it get a product like GetDataBack for FAT V4.00 assuming your sandisk card has a fat file system (Which it should). Once you have your recovery app installed you will then load your card into the card reader and plug it into your computer. Open up your recovery app and it should allow you select the card reader or the card itself. The recovery app will then do a low level scan of your card and attempt to pull any data it can from it. This process is honestly hit or miss, but it is really the only chance you have at home for recovering data.

If this fails and you really want your data back there are recovery companies like On Track that you can pay to retrieve your data. They have VERY good odds of getting your data back, but their prices are a bit high.

XD Card "locked" since computer crashed.

As long as the xD card was not formatted it is possible to recover the images that were accidently erased,lost or corrupted. You can go to the following website link and download an image recovery software program that is free of charge.
You want to download a program called Zero Assumption Recovery. It is a very simple program to use and many people have had much success in recovering images.

Data recovery is a booming industry, and many appropriate services and software can be found by searching regional phone and business directories or the Internet for terms such as "image recovery" or "data recovery".

hi, you have to note one thing. there are two types of devices. one is DTE and another one is DCE. DTE included Computer, Router etc, DCE includes Switch Hub etc. DTE to DTE is crossover cable. DCE to DCE Cross over cable. DTE to DCE or DCE to DTE is Straight through cable. Ok? Here you have to change the cable type to cross over cable. If the problem again persists dont hesitate to mail to me.
