How back up your files (data) before doing system restore


<p>1. Use of pre-installed backup tools. Many computers have a backup software installed when you buy (including Time Machine backup and restore for Mac or Windows). These tools are designed to transfer files to various media they create on the computer hard drive or external hard drive, you can prevent a total loss of data is performed. When you open the utility, follow the onscreen instructions to complete the backup. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Back up important files on a USB stick or Memory Stick. Insert the stick into a USB port on your computer. Drag the selected files to the disk icon on the desktop (Mac) or PC (Windows) will appear. Flash drives and memory sticks are very mobile and can be stored in small spaces such as basements. Although they generally do not have a capacity of more than a few gigabytes (GB), they are large enough to store your important files. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Enter an external hard drive. These external hard drives usually have a very large capacity and can therefore keep most or all files on a disk. Connect the external hard drive via a USB port. You can drag and drop files on your hard disk or use it as a means of backup using a backup utility installed. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Burn your important files on a CD-R or DVD-R. an entire hard disk backup can be many slices, so this option is ideal if you want large media files or documents for easy access later. Insert the CD into the CD-ROM and follow the instructions on the screen (for Windows and Mac) to back up and store files. <br /> <p><br /> <p>5. Upload files for storage in the cloud. Services in the Internet cloud storage (like Mozy and drop-down box) are great ways to backup files to the internet access from any Internet enabled device. Important files with sensitive information may only be attached to a back-up cloud services such as Mozy. Clouds, Drop box is ideal for backing up photos, videos and other files less sensitive.<br />

5 ways to speed up your computer


By following a few simple guidelines, you can maintain your computer and keep it running smoothly. This article discusses how to use the tools available in Windows 7, Vista, and XP Service Pack 3 (SP3) to more efficiently maintain your computer and safeguard your privacy when you're online.

1. Free up disk spaceThe Disk Cleanup tool helps you free up space on your hard disk to improve the performance of your computer. The tool identifies files that you can safely delete, and then enables you to choose whether you want to delete some or all of the identified files.
Use Disk Cleanup to:
  • Remove temporary Internet files.
  • Remove downloaded program files (such as Microsoft ActiveX controls and Java applets).
  • Empty the Recycle Bin.
  • Remove Windows temporary files such as error reports.
  • Remove optional Windows components that you don't use.
  • Remove installed programs that you no longer use.
  • Remove unused restore points and shadow copies from System Restore.
Tip: Typically, temporary Internet files take the most amount of space because the browser caches each page you visit for faster access later.


2. Speed up access to dataDisk fragmentation slows the overall performance of your system. When files are fragmented, the computer must search the hard disk when the file is opened to piece it back together. The response time can be significantly longer.
Disk Defragmenter is a Windows utility that consolidates fragmented files and folders on your computer's hard disk so that each occupies a single space on the disk. With your files stored neatly end-to-end, without fragmentation, reading and writing to the disk speeds up.
When to run Disk Defragmenter
In addition to running Disk Defragmenter at regular intervals—monthly is optimal—there are other times you should run it too, such as when:
  • You add a large number of files.
  • Your free disk space totals 15 percent or less.
  • You install new programs or a new version of Windows.

3. Detect and repair disk errorsIn addition to running Disk Cleanup and Disk Defragmenter to optimize the performance of your computer, you can check the integrity of the files stored on your hard disk by running the Error Checking utility.
As you use your hard drive, it can develop bad sectors. Bad sectors slow down hard disk performance and sometimes make data writing (such as file saving) difficult, or even impossible. The Error Checking utility scans the hard drive for bad sectors, and scans for file system errors to see whether certain files or folders are misplaced.
If you use your computer daily, you should run this utility once a week to help prevent data loss.
Run the Error Checking utility:
  1. Close all open files.
  2. Click Start, and then click My Computer.
  3. In the My Computer window, right-click the hard disk you want to search for bad sectors, and then click Properties.
  4. In the Properties dialog box, click the Tools tab.
  5. Click the Check Now button.
  6. In the Check Disk dialog box (called Error-checking in Windows 7), select the Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors check box, and then click Start
  7. If bad sectors are found, choose to fix them.
Tip: Only select the "Automatically fix file system errors" check box if you think that your disk contains bad sectors.


4. Protect your computer against spywareSpyware collects personal information without letting you know and without asking for permission. From the Web sites you visit to usernames and passwords, spyware can put you and your confidential information at risk. In addition to privacy concerns, spyware can hamper your computer's performance. To combat spyware, you might want to consider using Microsoft Windows Defender, which is included in Windows 7 and Windows Vista, and is available as a free download for Microsoft XP SP2. Alternatively, there are other free anti-spyware software programs available.

5. Learn all about ReadyBoostIf you're using Windows 7 or Windows Vista, you can use ReadyBoost to speed up your system. A new concept in adding memory to a system, it allows you to use non-volatile flash memory—like a USB flash drive or a memory card—to improve performance without having to add additional memory.

WERE DO LEADS GO FOM THE FRONT PANEL TO THE MBOARD FOR A EMACHINE E4904I DUNT KNW WERE THEY GO


The eMachines E4904 desktop computer uses an Intel D102GGC2 motherboard.

This is Intel Support, and the download page for the motherboard manual, for the Intel D102GGC2 motherboard,

http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d102ggc2/sb/CS-022441.htm

On this page I would like you to left-click right on -
English Product Guide [PDF]

May take a few seconds before you see the first page, and additional time for the PDF file to fully download.
Suggest you let the file fully download before looking through it.

[NOTE*
The computer you are using has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files. If you do not have the latest version of Adobe Reader, 9.3.4., I would suggest downloading it. The new version will remove the old version.

This is the latest version of Adobe Reader download page,

http://get.adobe.com/reader/

I would uncheck the McAfee Security Scan Plus. Just MHO ]

The plastic front of your computer is the Front Panel.
The area on the motherboard that the cables (Wires), from the Front Panel go to, is the Front Panel header.

(Series of pins sticking up from the motherboard)

In the top header of the PDF file is a Zoom Tool icon.
The + sign is the Zoom In tool icon.
The - sign is the Zoom Out tool icon.

I would click on the Zoom Out tool icon, and reduce the view to 100% (100 percent)

At the top of the PDF file in the header is also the page number box.
To the right of the blue Down Arrow.
Go to Page 11.

There are two ways to get to Page 11.

Slow way;
Click on the blue Down Arrow until you get to Page 11.

Fast way;
Put your mouse cursor in the page number box.
Left-click once.
Type 11.
Press the Enter key.

Page 11 shows you an illustration of the motherboard.
Processor to the Top, Ram Memory slots to the Right, the Front Panel header is to the very bottom Right corner of the motherboard.

(R in the illustration points to the Front Panel header)

You can see that the Front Panel header consists of 2 rows of pins.
These 2 rows of pins run parallel to the outside edge of the motherboard.

Go to Page 38.
This page shows a color illustration of the Front Panel header, and where the cables (Wires) attach to.

There are Four pins on the Top row.
There are Five pins on the bottom row.

Processor to the Top, Ram Memory slots to the Right, the Top row of pins are numbered from the Left side of the motherboard, going towards the Right side.

Top row numbering going from the Left side of the motherboard, towards the Right side,
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8.

Bottom row numbering going from the Left side of the motherboard, towards the Right side,
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9

1) Pins 1 and 3 are for the Harddrive Activity LED light.
(HD LED)
Pin 1 is for the Positive wire. ( + )
(Orange)

2) Pins 5 and 7 are for the Reset switch, (Reset button), IF used.
(Blue)

3) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED light.
Pin 2 is for the Positive wire. ( + )
(Green)

4) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch. (Power On button)
(Red)

5) Pin 9 is for a 5 Volt wire.
Doubt it will be used.

NOTE*
Remember computer unplugged from power, AND observe Anti-Static Precautions BEFORE you reach inside your computer.

INSTALLED 1 GB MEM STICK AND NOW COMPUTER WON'T START?


The memory module you installed may not be the correct type. Try removing it and if the computer starts fine after that, the memory is either wrong for your computer, or it is a bad module.

Go to www.crucial.com and run their memory scan tool. It will tell you the exact type of memory your computer uses. Compare that information to the sticker on your memory module.

Computer turns on but now booting up


Make sure the memory stick is securely installed on the motherboard. Also make sure that any additional cards in the expansion slots are also securely installed.

I had a similar problem on another machine and it was due to a memory stick that wasn''t fully secure, I reinstalled the memory stick and made sure it was a solid connection and it resolved my problem.

Please let me know if this helps you.

How do I transfer files from my old computer to my new computer using the memory stick I bought?


ok my friend its easy

just plug in the memory stick in the old computer and copy/paste files from the old computer to the memory stick (don't forget to look at the size the files might be over sized and the memory stick wont save them).

now after finishing the copy paste from the old computer to the memory stick, take the memory stick out and plug it in the new computer and copy/paste the files from the memory stick to the computer.

you may need to do these steps for few times if you have a large amount of data

cheers

Ntldr is missing


Hi,

Often this problem indicates a probable memory fault and/or a corrupt NTLDR file in the root directory of the main drive. Possible corrective action would be:
  • clean/replace memory;
  • remove HD, attach to a 2nd PC and simply copy/paste NTLDR file;
  • re-install/repair Windows using a recovery CD.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
