I use a Lenovo TB2-X30L. I connect to my WiFi, but it switches off after 1 second. What is the problem

If you are not seeing the 3g modem in Device Manager (Start > Run devmgmt.msc and press Enter, or access via control panel) try installing the driver for your systems 3G modem , which I believe is available in the link below, but enter the serial # etc. on the page just to be sure you get the right one. If the modem is showing as an "Unknown Device" or has a Yellow Exclamation Point displayed to indicate it as a non-working device in the Windows Device Manger, try right clicking on it, select uninstall, and check the box to delete existing driver software and reboot. Once rebooted, it should re-detect the modem and install the needed drivers automatically.
Note that from Device Manager, you can from the View Menu select "Show Hidden Devices" and see devices not normally displayed., so see if anything shows up there too.

If the device is working, but you are having trouble with it recognizing the SIM Card, you might read through this older thread and see if that helps.

Where download drivers for newsmy m50 for windows xp

Being an android PMP device it should not need any drivers for Windows XP, Vista or 7. Simply plug it in via the USB cable and your device will show up as a drive letter in My Computer.
If that is not happening, I would check the Device Manager (Start - Run - "compmgmt.msc" and press enter - then click on Device Manager on the left hierarchy) to see if it is showing up under Disk Drives on the right. If it is not, it should be showing up under Other Devices, which you can right-click on and tell it to "Update Driver Software" and check online for drivers. If it's not showing up at all, check your USB cable.
Hope this helps!

My external buffalo hard drive is recognised in device manager, but can't access through explorer... any ideas please? I am running Vista and the last time I accessed the hard drive was doing a backup...

Your drive could have errors due to the aborted task. You need to format your drive. Go to Computer Management, if your drive is recognized in device manager t will show up in the Computer Management, there you can format it. Good luck.
