    In trying to understand your problem, I think you are mixing terminology.



    - Did you try to erase everything from your drive or is it not visible for some reason?

    - MS Windows 2007? There is no version so named; XP is what you later mentioned.

    - "configured to just allow excel and word" That doesn't compute; one doesn't 'configure to allow' - Do you mean you installed those?

    - "i have no applications installed" Excel and Word are applications.

    - "the memory is 50x.." This isn't how memory or drive space is expressed so we can't know what you mean.

    If memory, it would be expressed as 'megabytes' or MB, if disk size, it would be in 'gigabytes' or GB.



    If you can clarify those things, perhaps someone can help you.



    Now going 'crackers' I understand very well - ;-)

Hello,

If the drive properties in show a full drive, then the install of xp probably has taken most or all of the hard drive space.

According to http://www.microsoft.com/middleeast/windows/windowsxp/home/evaluation/sysreqs.aspx
the operating system needs at least 1.5G.

Thanks

Sandisk 8gb cruzer not working


Bring the Sandisk cruzer to any computer store that offers data recovery and back up or data retrieval. We called them the Data Recovery Center.

Most of them has a software they use in cracking passwords and other secured programs. From their computer, they could actually back up your important files saved in your Sandisk. Then you may now reformat your device.

Hope this helps and have a great day!

Backup all your data to a CD, or an online storage device such as http://skydrive.live.com/ (50MB Max limit), or search on google for "free online storage". Put in the Vista CD and restart your computer. Press F8 before Windows XP starts to load. Follow the steps to install Windows Vista. When it asks you, reformat your hardrive. WARNING: REFORMATING WILL ERASE ALL YOUR DATA, SO MAKE SURE YOU BACK UP YOUR IMPORTANT DATA BEFORE. You will then have a clean install of Vista which will allow your computer to run much faster. From there, you can restore/download your files that you backed up.

Erase faxes in memory


I had the same problem and wanted to remove confidential faxes from memory in order to be able to sell or donate old T45. Manual does NOT help.

My solution is based on fact that I have a separate FAX and voice line. I connected my Windows machine (which has a fax/data modem) to my voice line and faxed a large (80 page) software manual to the fax machine. This fills the available memory, thus erasing the old documents. (To save paper, remove paper supply first, the fax machine will still receive and store the document.)

PS2 online gaming with Madden 08


Erase all madden data from your memory card including network configuration and download the latest rosters and try again. The error happens when the rosters (between the two people playing) dont match and you try to connect online. Download the rosters and dont mess with them! This worked for me and i was getting a buzzing sound every time i tried to connect to a game online, i even went out and rented a another copy of the game, so definately a memory card problem.
