Re: problem with Hard Drive
The easiest way to do that is to purchase an external enclosure for your type of desktop hard drive. They come with usb, firewire or both types of connections. It is a simple matter to remove the hard drive from the desktop and install in the enclosure. Plug it in and connect to your notebook. The enclosure will be seen as another hard drive and you can then copy what you need from the desktop hard drive to the notebook. Once on the notebook you can burn to dvd's if you like. This will not work for copying programs. They may still work, navigate to the program folder on the hard drive, find the application folder, open it and find the starting icon, right click on it and send to desktop.
All this is moot if the drive itself is too damaged to spin.

Hook your kindle fire to your computer. When the auto play window appears click on "view files". When your kindle hard drive files appear then look for the books file on your kindle. Click on the books folder then copy and paste them on your desktop then unplug your kindle. Plug your wife's kindle in then do the same to open her books folder then copy and paste the books from your desktop into her book folder.
This is a serious fault. You either have a hardware fault (hard drive, memory or graphics card), a corruption of windows or a virus infection.
If you can, use your cellphone to take a close up full frame picture of the Blue screen so you can read it carefully all the way through to see advice on what the fault might be and some recommendations on how to fix it.
First you must back up any important data you have on the computer.
If you know how to remove the hard drive, (unscrew small cover underneath with CDs icon next to it, then unscrew hard drive bracket containing hard drive and lift both up carefully) you should unscrew the bracket holding the hard drive and then insert the hard drive into an empty hard drive enclosure. connect the enclosure to another computer and back up all important documents, pictures, music, spreadsheets, designs, favourites, contacts etc.
Then put the hard drive back in the computer as before and use a Windows XP, Vista or 7 Tablet Edition CD or DVD to boot from the disc instead of the hard drive by tapping the F12, F11 or F10 function key a few times at the beginning of the boot and then attempting a Repair Installation of Windows.
Then restart, remove the CD or DVD and hopefully it will boot successfully.
Post a further comment specifying your Windows version if you need more help.
Xp can only "See" a hard drive up to about 128GB, if its bigger than that, XP won't install.
Make sure your drive is properly connected, and jumper in the right place (1 drive, set to master) If it used to work before your problem, should be ok.
Then boot from your windows disk. If your bios is set to boot from the hard drive, if there's no operating system on your hard drive it can't boot.
If its set to boot from the hard drive first, it may, after a few seconds revert to booting from the disk drive. If not, while booting watch the screen, at the bottom it you should see "Press F2 for setup or F10 for boot options" or something similar. To temporarily change the settings, choose the boot options menu and select "Boot from CD". Restart and you should be on your way.
If that doesn't work, you may need a new hard drive.
This is usually indicative of your hard drive failing or the connection has come adrift.
The operating system, is usually windows, normally loaded on a pc when purchased. If you've purchased second hand, one of the usual practices is to remove the hard drive (and operating system) to protect personal data.
If there is a hard drive in place, you can buy a copy of windows, a friend may lend you a copy, but you will also need a code of authority (6 groups of 5 characters)to install it properly.
Alternatively you can get or download a "Linux" based operating system such as Ubuntu for free.
It means that the BIOS cannot find a disk to boot.
Make sure you selected the hard drive in the boot settings of your BIOS
Remove all external DVD drives or floppy drives or ethernet cables
If you get an error message, you should start troubleshooting your hard drive.
WE NEED TO REMOVE AND REINSTALL YOUR DEVICE DRIVER
_Driver_1.00.01.zip file and save to your desktop. Use a file compression software to unzip the file located inside MyBook_vista_windows7_Driver_1.00.01.zip to your desktop. You will now see a file called "MyBook_vista_windows7_Driver_1.00.01.exe" or "MyBook_vista_windows7_Driver_1.00.01" on your desktop. Double-click on "MyBook_vista_windows7_Driver_1.00.01.exe" or "MyBook_vista_windows7_Driver_1.00.01" to launch the driver installation program. The wizard will display a message saying that it is ready to install the driver, click Next. Accept the license Agreement and click Next Click Install to start the installation of the drivers. The driver will be installed without further interaction and should take only a few seconds to install. When the installation is finished, click Finish to close the installation utility. Reboot the computer system before connecting the My Book Essential or Premium Edition hard drive. After connecting the My Book Essential or Premium Edition hard drive, Windows will automatically detect the unit and a new hard drive icon will appear in the My Computer window. Your My Book Essential or Premium Edition hard drive should now be ready to use.
NOTE: Ususally when computers DO NOT find any startup information on the SELECTED DRIVE (like when you click a key) it goes to the default drive. WHICH IS YOUR HARD DRIVE. Meaning it is probably your Harddrive is broken, or your connection from hard drive to motherboard is broken
Burn a Live CD bootdisk of some linux distribution liek Slax, google it. Burn it to a bootable CD and put it into your drive, then select to boot from it. If it boots only using your CD ROM drive, if that works then its probably not your BIOS/rest of computer, which is good.
And while in the live cd, you can see your harddrive and see files, that means its not broken its just your connection to it....either way im guessing youll have to send it in.
