I just received my laptop yesterday. I have Adobe on my flash drive. I want to put it on my laptop. My laptop doesn't recognize my flash drives when I insert them in the ports. How do I get the computer to recognize my flash drives. I'm a college student and I need to use my flash drives everyday. HELP!!!!

have you tried different usb ports? hit the windows key and the R key at the same time and type diskmgmt.msc and go into disk manager and see if the flash drive shows up in the list of disks installed.
I would suggest accessing your account and then changing the password.
There is a hidden Administrator account that is created when your operating system is installed. Access that account and then reset your password.
1. Boot your computer and press F8 repeatedly 2. Access Safe Mode 3. Key in "Administrator" in Username, with no password. 4. Go to Control Panel, then User Accounts 5. Select the account you want to reset the password 6. Change the password
Go here download the program http://www.daemon-tools.cc/eng/downloads/dtLite You must have at least a 2GB flash drive, mount the flash drive using daemon tools. Then copy the the install disk to your flash drive. Then power on your computer with the bad dvd drive and go into BIOS and in the BOOT OPTIONS you will need to set the number one spot as USB then dvd (even though it doesn't work) then your HDD. Save the changes you just made to your BIOS and EXIT. This will reboot your computer and should boot the installation of windows from your USB drive. Hope this helps, let me know if you need more help or run into questions along the way.
Here is what will be the easiest for you, believe me.
1. Obtain an ACTIVATED copy of Windows XP SP3
2. Have a Flash Drive with all the drivers on it for your Dell model already downloaded and in their own folder. You can do that from Dell Support, accessing the correct drivers download page using the Service Tag# from the bottom of the laptop.
3. Borrow an external USB connecting CD drive from someone.
4. Use the external drive, CD and Flash Drive to re-install Windows.
The only other way is to download XP from the Net. I cannot appropriately assist you in the particulars of that on this site.
Try opening the 'computer' icon - normally shows as an icon on your desktop or in start menu then you will hopefully see the flash drive listed along with C Drive, CD Drive etc. Double click or right click and open - this should let you see and open individual files on the flash.
