Question about Microsoft Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I dont have a problem yet, but I want to buy a 2t hdd, I want to know if there are programs that are capable of putting all the old programs on my new hdd. Or do I need to get them all re-installed and paid for again. I have some programs that are fairly expensive and frankly if they find out that I am still using them they will ask for back pay and interest. Besides it will take weeks to find my printer and modem and other drivers that are working well right now.

You can use a hard-disk cloning application. Examples of this are Acronis True Image and Norton Ghost. There are shareware versions of these applications, like what you will find below:

These applications can make an exact copy of your HDD, even make a proportional partition (if your original HDD has more than one partition).

How big a hard drive can I put in this computer and how much more ram can I add

of the memory - this is toshiba i assume? you should mention manufacturer...

i think this particular model can accept up to 8gb sdram ddr2 memory (better check at shop where you will buy it - or consult toshiba website), now, changing hdd on laptop is easy, but i would rather suggest buying 500gb or 1tb external hdd.

if you wish to change your existing hdd - just purchase bigger, and install it - problem is that you will then need to re-load your operating system, all programs and all related junk on existing hdd - hence: buy 1tb external, copy - or better move all data (photos, documents, movies, favourite p 0rn... whatever you wish), to new hdd, when everything of value you have copied/moved, then either format old hdd and re-install the programs, or just use ccleaner (available at this site
choose free version or purchase one if you wish), clean your computer, delete/uninstall programs which you did not access in last 6months, run registry cleaner (several times till you have no errors find message) and you will have again happy and workable computer.

hope this will help you with your decision, do not forget to vote...

Just carry out the indicated additions and subtractions.

5t+t-7t+3t = 2t
-3-5+8 = 0

The result is 2t+0 or simply 2t

Are you sure this is a DT 125 as with this particular bike it is self mixing there should be a separate tank by the handle bars just under the front plastics opposite the water tank this is where you fill it with oil then just put gas in the gas tank and it will mix it self you do not have to do anything else do not put oil in the gas tank with the gas mixing would usally be dirt bikes or really old bikes only

Im putting a new hard drive in do i need to install a cd to do it i dont have the originals that came with mine they were stollen, if so where can i get them

Your post is in PC Desktops, it's a Laptop? It's a Dell Vostro 3400? Is the old HDD working? If you install a new primary HDD you will need a Factory System disk to re-install to factory specs OR a Windows Installation Disk. Contact Dell Support with your Make, Model, Serial Number of Computer, if the Factory Recovery Disk is available. Dell Support: You may can use a online service? If your old drive works you can "clone" it to the new HDD, using a software program.

E-machine 2003. crashed while uploading pix-help!

Excelent description thanx. I assume you have bought a new PC. If so simply remove old HDD and plug it into the DVD cable on the new PC and boot up. It should read the old HDD, simply "copy" pics to new HDD.

DO NOT "MOVE" pics or will corrupt drive futher.

Reformat oldd HDD and repload Windows, all good again.

Asrock P4V8+ freezes after ram checking

Try going into the BIOS and selecting safe or minimal settings/options save and reboot. If this works go back to BIOS and make changes one at a time until it may not work again, then you will know which option is causing the system hang ups. My guess is also your motherboard is SATA 1 capable (1.5
gbs) not SATA 2, in which you could purchase a separate controlller card for your HDD. Good luck.
