Mabee the hard drive has failed . try entering bios and see if the hard drive is recognised .If not try turning the computer off unplug it then reconnect the drive data cable and power cable
then re- start the computer and see if it is recognised. some models of older hard drives needed a driver installed during set up -- you usually have to put the driver on a floppy disc and hit the f6 button when prompted by windows set up to install third party drivers . I hope this helps

Problem on acess is denied when entered pendrive


you might not be the computers administrator or the usb drive is not set for sharing or.......

click start control panel user accounts on the users tab click the name of the computer administrator you must have full control

If you are running a Windows XP OS then you might be able to:
- click start right click on my computer select open
- Right click the icon of your Flash Drive (It should be F:/ or something)
- Click Properties in the menu that comes up
- Click the Sharing tab
- Click permissions
- And finally, click Allow next to Full Control.
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll down universal serial bus controllers you could see a yellow question mark?

right click to reinstall drivers

if you can see your usb drive but its not working

ports(com&lpt)right click update driver if this fails to fix the problem

check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red white green black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems for a computer and its parts hope this helps

click start control panel administrive tools ,computer management ,device manager look through all of your devices if you see a yellow question mark?or exclamation mark ! or red x

right click to reinstall drivers

hope this helps

It happened because your "pendrive" contains one kind of trojan horse. Please scan by some good antivirus.

Could not open - acess denied


Carefully examine your Kingston for a tiny physical slide switch! You have probably accidentally moved that switch into the "LOCK" position!

Hope this helps!

Acess denied


You certainly have an autorun installed by a virus.

A solution is to go command line and delete autorun.inf in c:\ and d:\

Another solution is to right click and choose open in the menu instead of execute. If execute is default then your computer is infected. I suggest http://downloads.andymanchesta.com/RemovalTools/SDFix_ReadMe.htm

Problem installing windows XP


This is going to be either a bad disc or a bad hard drive. Do a hard drive test in the bios, if any part of it fails, then you will need to replace the hard drive. If the hard drive passes, then try a different operating system disc.
