C: drive thought to be memory stick

Generic problem (I think)...my PC thinks that my C: drive is a temporary memory drive and a symbol is on my toolbar - a device with a green arrow pointing to the left (like it does if you put a memory stick in).
I think this occurred after i downloaded Adobe R8 and it declared war on my Firefox and my PC became totally unstable. I got rid of Adobe and Firefox. Tried to repair XP and after a LOT of work eventually got IE7 onto my PC and repaired XP with SP3, thanks to Microsoft Knowledge base. Don't Go Bill!
What's the answer, please.

Fully format the drive in which you have installed the OS and then install the fresh copy of the windows XP ....
if the same problem persists then your system might have got attacked with some virus like trojan backdoor or trojan horse ...

this virus will not be vanished if you remove the partition and reinstall the Xp also so first you must download a good updated antivirus & then scan your whole system & clean the virus & then install the fresh copy of the OS by formatting that drive ...

thank you

Can I move messages to external memory card?


I am not for sure how this would happen but I would think that when the message is up that you want to save you can highlight it and save it to your card. At that point you should be able to save it to anything. Another thing I just thought of is if you hook it straight to a computer you probable can save it to your hard drive directly and then again to any other device like a USB

My computer keeps saying windows cannot complete installation. To install windows on this computer restart the installion have tried this nothing's working help


The way you state the problem makes me think you are trying to reinstall Windows. If this is the case, I'd suggest reformatting the hard drive before installation. There seems to be something left over from the old system that is preventing the install from completing.
If you have a "clean" hard drive and the install fails, there is a good possibility that there is a memory problem. A bad memory stick will cause the install to fail.
So--do the clean install first and if that fails, try replacing the memory or at least swapping out one or the other of the memory sticks.

I have a Toshiba Satellite 1905-S301 that has 512mb of DDR memory currently. I have a stick of 128 that I was going to throw in there to boost performance but when I opened the compartment the there was...


There are 2 types of memory, one for laptops and one for pc.

Your additional stick seems to be for pc from what your saying.

Additional thoughts:
I'm sure you can buy sticks for laptops at walmart or whereever you bought ur laptop. Just make sure it is the same speed type. Example: yours is 512mb ddr PC 5200, you will need to find PC5200, the 512mb and up you shouldnt have to worry about. So do your research before you upgrade or you will burn your laptop.

Adding new memory


The memory sticks have nothing to do with whats on your computer. All the stuff on your computer is on the hard drives. The memory sticks/RAM is it ability to process and think. So yes you can remove all the memory sticks and replace them with larger ones without any problems.

Memory stick


I think catcher-lock in memory slot is defective in your PC that's why memory card is stuck there. Use tweezers to pull it back as temporary solution and ask nearest Sony service center for replacement of defective part.
