    Thanks for your help. i had a sinking feeling it meant getting the drive recovered, and you just confirmed it.

If you can't access the hard drive at all then the info on the drive is already lost. I would try to boot from your operating system CD and reinstall the Windows operating system. You could have all the information on your hard drive recovered but this would cost more money then it's worth. If the information on your hard drive was not important then reboot the operating system with your restore CD and start it all over. If it won't copy from your operating system CD then you will need to replace the hard drive.

Click on this link below if the information was very important and will need to be recovered:

Network Access After Norton Anti-Virus Install


Sometimes you can't access a WinXP computer after installing Norton Anti-Virus.
There might be a variety of errors at the other computer depending on the operating system.
On the XP computer, in the Event Viewer / System log, there will be the following error:
The server's configuration parameter "irpstacksize" is too small for the server to use a local device.

  1. Start Regedit
  2. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\lanmanserver\parameters
  3. Edit the IRPStackSize
  4. Give it a value of 15
  5. Reboot the computer

Parameter out of normal operating range, computer will not boot up


Probably need to replace the hard drive and reinstall your operating system. Can you boot from a cd? Do a hard drive test and post the results.

"the parameter is not correct" msg re WD My Book, unable to access


Try plugging it into a different computer to see what it does. Sometimes a computer's operating system will recognize an external drive differently if it has only a slight problem, whereas another computer's configuration may treat the problem differently. Some external hardrive software can get jumbled by the programs of a computer or sometimes even their own software programs can cause slight problems. It sounds like a software problem with bugs that can be ironed out. Also some computers will change the drive name to fit into the order of drives it recognizes. Good luck!

Yes it will not allow you to access the back up drive as it is not user accessible, it is accessible only by the system when you try to back up your system by system back up utilities.

Upgraded 456 gears on my Avalanche now having warning lights on


rubbish
the abs sensors stopped wheels not fast spinning wheels
when there is no signal from the rotor the abs kicks in and releases he brake pressure to that wheel/s allowing them to turn to give the driver steering control
as the abs and traction control use the same wheel sensor , the traction could detect a fast spinning wheel and take action to control it
you have upgraded the final drive ration to 4.56 from standard which will be 3 point something which will make the engine rev higher to get the same speed
and that could be where the problem is coming from as there is a connection between the engine rpms and the road speed and the preset parameters may be not reading the new settings from the new diff ratio
putting on the lights and dropping power

C Drive Access Denied and The Parameter is Incorrect


I found this on a Vista Forum: Re: Access to C Drive
I figured it out -- you have to take ownership of the drive away from
the "TRusted Installer" account, which can be used only by Windows, and
assign it to one of your administrator accounts. AVG did this! So now your C: drive can be accessed by "Trusted Installer" and not you. You are an Administrator so you need to go to permissions and assign the C: drive to you and NOT the "Trusted Installer"
