Some questions first. Does your system detect a new hardware? If yes, then do the following. If your flash drive comes with a CD, insert it then try installing( the software needed might be in there).
If your system doesnt detect your flash, then it might be that your usb port has been disabled from the Bios settings. But first check your Device Manager to see if your usb ports are working well ( From Control panel- system-Device Manager). If everything is working properly in the device Manager, then call on a technician to look at the Bios settings so as not to complicate things.

I recently purchased Two PNY 1Gb ram to upgrade from original 512mb. When I put both 1Gb ram in the slots, the computer will not boot up. When I take one out and put the original 512 back in with the other...


I don't know your specific model, but some of the Emachines had some memory directly on the motherboard. With the 1Gb and 512Mb sticks installed, boot the machine and report how much memory the system sees. Perhaps the onboard memory is causing you to exceed the 2Gb limit.

Please post the memory size you get here with the above sticks.

Thanks,
Dan

MultiBoot USB Flash - Survival Guide


Grub4DOS is a boot manager
that can be easily installed to a USB flash.
It allows booting multiple operating systems
from a simple graphical user interface.

laikexpert_5.jpg

1.) Format the USB flash drive in the FAT32 or NTFS filesystem. (Windows)
(
Download and start HPUSBFW.EXE )http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4040651/HPUSBFW.EXE
-REMINDER!!! all data will be deleted on the USB flash-


1.a) Download necessary files
Grub4Doshttp://dl.dropbox.com/u/4040651/grub4dos-0.4.4.zip
Grub4Dos gui Installer 1.1
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4040651/Grub4Dos%20gui%20Installer%201.1.rar

1.b) Extract the downloaded zip files into separate folders.
For example:
Grub4DOS to C:Grub4DOS
Grub4Dos gui Installer 1.1 to C:
Grub4Dos gui Installer 1.1

2.)
If your flashdrive is not already plugged into the computer, plug it in now.

2.a) The next step is to run the Grub4DOS Installer.
Browse to the Installer's unzipped folder using Windows Explorer.

2.b) Run the grubinst_gui.exe program (Windows XP)
Right-click on grubinst_gui.exe Run as administrator (Windows 7)

laikexpert_6.jpg

2.c) Once the program is started, select the Disk option,
then click the Disk Refresh button and then select
your flashdrive from the dropdown box.
IMPORTANT:If you accidentally select the wrong drive,
you may not be able to boot your system without doing a boot repair.

2.d) Now click the Part List Refresh button,
then the dropdown box and finally select the Whole disk (MBR) option

2.e) Click the Install button to install Grub4DOS to the MBR
of the flashdrive.
Hopefully, you'll get the message that the installation was successful.

3.) The next step is to copy the grldr file to the flashdrive's
root folder.Using Windows Explorer, browse to the folder
where you unzipped
the Grub4DOS program and copy the file to the flashdrive.

3.a) Grub4DOS is now installed on the flashdrive.

4.)Download file
menu.lsthttp://dl.dropbox.com/u/4040651/menu.lst

4.a)You need to copy the menu.lst file to USB Flash

4.b)Create a folder Boot on a USB flash drive.
in this folder create new folders
Splash
menus

4.c) Download file
Snaiyahttp://dl.dropbox.com/u/4040651/Snaiya

4.d) On USB flash-open the folder Boot
Within-we see Splash folder. Copy the file Snaiya into it.


5.) Add Puppy Linux on a multiboot USB flash

laikexpert_0.png

5.a) Download the Puppy ISO imagehttp://www.puppylinux.org/

5.b) Create a folder Puppy on a USB flash drive.

5.c) Take from the downloaded ISO, file
PUP_420.SFS (from the folder Puppy)
Rename it to pup_420.sfs
and copy it to
USB flash.

5.d) Copy all other files from the downloaded ISO (from the folder Puppy)
to the folder /Boot/Puppy/ (Create a folder on a USB flash)

5.e) In the menu.lst add a:

title Puppy
kernel (hd0,0)/boot/Puppy/vmlinuz ramdisk_size=100000
initrd /boot/Puppy/initrd.gz

5.f) Preserve the changes and now menu.lst looks like this:

gfxmenu (hd0,0)/boot/Splash/Snaiya
timeout 30
default 0

title Puppy
kernel (hd0,0)/boot/Puppy/vmlinuz ramdisk_size=100000
initrd /boot/Puppy/initrd.gz

title Boot from CD-rom
cdrom --init
map --hook
chainloader (cd0)

title ShutDown PC
halt

title Reboot PC
reboot

5.g) Puppy on our MultibootUSB flash-is ready for operation.
(Now we can restart our computer and see how it looks and works)

Depending on the options your motherboard, it is necessary when starting
your computer keyboard press: F8 or F12 or Esc, etc..
Thus you will appear a menu where you choose your USB flash drive.

New ram not speedy


well, the lowest speed of those rams will be effective for all rams. If you install same sized ram on 1st and the 3rd port, it should be run on dual channel mode and will be fastest possible. please try this if you have 4 ports.

Plse can u run thru the procedure to set up my new purchase pny 4gb flashdrive??


Most flashdrives (aka pen drives or usb sticks) do not require installation. They are a storage device that you add information to. If you could post your OS (either XP, Vista, Linux or Mac OS X) we can go through the process of adding and reading information from the drive.

I am trying to save to my NEW PNY usb flashdrive and it keeps telling me it's write protected. There is NO switch or anything to unprotect this thing. Can you tell me what I am doing wrong?


Depending on what you are trying to save, the file or files might be write protected. If it is just music, it should transfer fine. Assuming your using a PC, if you right click on the file your trying to transfer and click properties, it will have options such as "read only" or "hidden", make sure none of those are checked. You can also do the same for your new flashdrive if you view that drive in "My Computer" from the start tab.
Good luck, hopefully that's the problem.

Go to ADD HARDWARE and try to force the install.

Just so you know, Optima Pro Attaché USB 2.0 Flash Drive was designed with Windows Vista in mind, and works in conjunction with new SuperFetch (intelligent caching) to enhance system performance for quicker startup and windows multi-tasking.
But it's also compatible with most PC/MAC laptop and desktop computers with available USB 2.0 port (Backwards compatible to USB 1.0).

Transfer of infomation from old to new computer


Ms Debie, depending on what type of desktop PC you would be buying... if you know how to remove your old hard disk and can attach to the new one then that is simpliest way of doing it. You can just make your old hard disk a slave drive then you can get any files you wanted from that hardisk then iwhtout changing anything from the old one.

USB stick


If the files you have saved are in the format that the sewing machine will read and the sewing machine has a USB port to plug the memory stick into, it should work.

Your sewing machine manual may have instructions on how to import files.
