Question about LaCie Computers & Internet

5 Answers

Have just purchased a 160GB mobile disc that works fine on my PC but will not link up with my Sony laptop with Windows XP (2002 version). Laptop recognises new hardware but does not install and software on disc does not download. Laptop processor is AMD Duron 496 MHz with 256MB RAM.

Hi, It is possible that you laptop does not give enough power to the usb port to which you are plugging this mobile disk into. If it came with it's own power supply, make sure you use it. If it came with a usb cable which is Y shaped, i.e, one usb point at one end and 2 at the other, you must plug, these 2 into 2 usb ports on the laptop. In other words 1 usb cable end to the drive, and 2 usb cable ends plugged to the laptop, this doubles the power to the drive and may solve the issue for you.

If the Laptop recognises new hardware, then there is no issue with the laptop. you need to install the software and drivers required.

How can i retrieve my original windows xp home edtion for my sony vaio pcg fx55g/bp, since it was formatted?


Hello seltiel_alle
Use your recovery disc . If you don't have one or if it fails , Xp is gone for ever .
If you are currently under Windows 7 Ultimate , or Pro , or Enterprise , you can download and install a virtual version of XP . You can get it from here : http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.aspx and it's free .

I need to reset my HP6910P T9300 laptop psw without a reset disc?


If you can read the license sticker on the back and it's running vista you can put a "vista all versions" disc in and enter your number when it asks. I'd also advise you to reformat your hard drive from advanced options when it asks you where you want to install. if it's running XP you need the right disc for the version of XP your license is for. If you can't read the sticker, which happens a lot, download jellybean jeyfinder and run it. That will tell you what your license key is and what exact version of windows you're running.

Upgrade to vista ultimate


If you have a full version of Windows Vista Ultimate, you can just insert the DVD when you logged in your laptop and go to Computer(My Computer) and lauch the installer for Windows on DVD icon (Double Click DVD icon). It will give you the main window for installing Windows and along the way, you should find an Upgrade option. Click that one and it will install windows Ultimate on your system. It Will not format the laptop but installer will just add system files and features to the laptop to run Vista Ultimate.

**If you haven't purhcase a Windows Vista Ultimate Disc, check this link to to purchase just an upgrade Disc (only) of Vista Ultimate.

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-vista/get/anytime-upgrade-overview.aspx

An upgrade disc will also not format the laptop instead it will just install additional features and add additional files on the system to run Windows Vista Ultimate
