How to Convert FAT to NTFS file system


Hi,

To convert a FAT partition to NTFS, perform the following steps.

Click Start, click Programs, and then click Command Prompt.

In Windows XP, click Start, click Run, type cmd and then click OK.

At the command prompt, type CONVERT [driveletter]: /FS:NTFS.

Convert.exe will attempt to convert the partition to NTFS.

NOTE: Although the chance of corruption or data loss during the conversion from FAT to NTFS is minimal, it is best to perform a full backup of the data on the drive that it is to be converted prior to executing the convert command. It is also recommended to verify the integrity of the backup before proceeding, as well as to run RDISK and update the emergency repair disk (ERD).


Good luck!

Bhautesh.

Your PC has entered the netherworld (the mysterious regions below Windows).

Start to "Windows with Command Prompt" and execute the MSDOS command SFC (System File Check) - with your Windows Install CD handy (SFC will probably ask for it).

Once you get a command prompt (if you can), execute memory, and disk checks too (Why not?)

If you cannot get Windows with command Prompt to come up, execute ROM BIOS system checks - a bad memory location or card will cause a failure to boot, as will a bad Hard Drive HDA.

I had to replace a laptop's HDD last week after facing this exact same error.
Luckily it was a Dell Latitude E6400, and replacing the HDD is 2 screws and yank it out of the PCMCIA bus.

BIOS PROBLEM


The file you downloaded should have provided instructions for its use wither in a redme file or on the page it was downloaded from. There are several different ways for flashing the BIOS. Many still require booting from a DOS disk and using a DOS-based flash utility to perform the update. Others are Windows executable files that can flash the BIOS directly without having to start a reduced-functionality environment, but they require Administrative access to the computer to perform the update.

If what you downloaded was a Zip file, there should be instructions included with it.

You also want to make sure that it the the correct BIOS you are flashing. If it is not the correct version, you risk permanent damage to your computer.

Sir, this is jafer i forget my acer laptop bios password


To clear BIOS password!!!!
You can use following command in command prompt.
c:>debug (You will see -)
- o 70 2e (Just simply type o 70 2e)
- o 71 ff
- Q

This will work on most DOS version.

Try this. If it doesn't work pls mail to me. smile.gif

----------------------------------------------------------------------
I already tested this command in win98.
o mean open the address.

This doesn't work on bios system password. Just only for bios password.

How can i update bios of asrock 775vm800. i have downloaded latest file but can't find flash utility on asrock website. ?


before updating your bios make sure there's a valid reason for it... in other words?
1. have you tried other solutions to the problems you may be having
2. is there something in the updated bios that you currenlty need?
3. is there something actually working poorly on your corrent motherboard or built in controlers, sound, usb devices, network controller etc..

when updating the bios there's a rule of thumb that says "if it's not broken don't fix it".. as it may create real problems you may not be able to revert back.

as per installation.. the package with the bios update is an executable file (???.exe) that may come prepackaged in a compressed file (???.rar)... download the file and then use WINRAR or WINZIP a program to unpack the ???.rar file for you to access you exectable file (???.exe) inside the .rar file.

hope it works and good luck..
make sure to back up your data as who knows what may happen...
also.. make sure your computer is not shutdown while your updating/flashing the bios.. this may mess up the board completely!
