Tip

INSTALL WINDOWS 7 USING USB PEN DRIVE !!!!!!!!


Requirements:
*USB Flash Drive (Minimum 4GB)
*Windows 7 or Vista installation files.
Follow the below steps to create bootable Windows 7/Vista USB drive using which you can install Windows 7/Vista easily.
1. Plug-in your USB flash drive to USB port and move all the contents from USB drive to a safe location on your system.
2. Open Command Prompt with admin rights. Use any of the below methods to open Command Prompt with admin rights.
*Type cmd in Start menu search box and hit Ctrl+ Shift+ Enter.
Or
*Go to Start menu > All programs > Accessories, right click on Command Prompt and select Run as administrator.
3. You need to know about the USB drive a little bit. Type in the following commands in the command prompt:
First type DISKPART and hit enter
Next type LIST DISK command and note down the Disk number (ex: Disk 1) of your USB flash drive. In the below screenshot my Flash Drive Disk no is Disk 1.
4. Next type all the below commands one by one. Here I assume that your disk drive no is “Disk 1”.If you have Disk 2 as your USB flash drive then use Disk 2.Refer the above step to confirm it.
So below are the commands you need to type and execute one by one:
SELECT DISK 1
CLEAN
CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY
SELECT PARTITION 1
ACTIVE
FORMAT FS=NTFS
(Format process may take few seconds)
ASSIGN
EXIT
Don’t close the command prompt as we need to execute one more command at the next step. Just minimize it.
5. Next insert your Windows7/Vista DVD into the optical drive and check the drive letter of the DVD drive. In this guide I will assume that your DVD drive letter is “D” and USB drive letter is “H” (open my computer to know about it).
6. Maximize the minimized Command Prompt in the 4th step.Type the following command now:
D: CD BOOT and hit enter.Where “D” is your DVD drive letter.
CD BOOT and hit enter to see the below message.
7. Type another command given below to update the USB drive with BOOTMGR compatible code.
BOOTSECT.EXE /NT60 H:
Where “H” is your USB drive letter. Once you enter the above command you will see the below message.
8. Copy your Windows 7/Vista DVD contents to the USB flash drive.
9. Your USB drive is ready to boot and install Windows 7/Vista. Only thing you need to change the boot priority at the BIOS to USB from the HDD or CD ROM drive. I won’t explain it as it’s just the matter the changing the boot priority or enabling the USB boot option in the BIOS.
Note: If you are not able to boot after following this guide means you haven’t set the BIOS priority to USB. If you got any problem in following this guide feel free to ask questions by leaving comment.

Compaq presario 56000cl won't boot up / red light flashing in the back.


When you press the power button do you hear the fan running, hear the disk drive running, see any lights, do you hear the cd drive click once and see the light come on briefly on the cd drive door? If you see all the aforementioned then it is surely trying to boot. Computers don't boot mainly because of the following problems. 1) Bad Power Cord or Power Supply. 2) Electro Static Buildup. 3) Bad Motherboard 4) Bad boot or system files.
Remove the Power Cord and the battery if it's a laptop. Press and Hold the Power Button for 30 Seconds. Then replace only the Power Cord and try hitting the Power Button. If it boots you had an Electro Static Buildup. If you have boot or system files that are missing or corrupt normally the system will be telling you that on an error message that appears on the screen. Does your system show you anything on the screen when you press the Power Button? If not you have a Power Supply or Motherboard issue.

Step by step how to use your usb flash drive?


Steps for connecting your USB Flash Drive

Step 1: Take off the cap and insert your flash key into the USB port. The USB port is usually located on your CPU tower (just below where you insert your floppy disk or CD. There will be a symbol that looks like a 'sideways cactus.' See picture.
brymz.jpegUSB symbol
Note : Some computers will have the USB port located on the back of the CPU Tower.

Step 2: Next, you can double-click on "My Computer" on your desktop or hold down the "Flag" key and the letter "E" at the same time (the "flag" key is located between the Ctrl and Alt keys on your keyboard, see picture). This will open up "My Computer".
brymz_2.jpg

Step 3: Once you open up "My Computer" to open your flash key, you will need to double-click on it, which at your home computer will either be the E:, F:, or G: drive.

Note:
The reason for why the drive letter might differ, is that your flash key is a "removable" storage so it assigns the next available drive letter. Also, once you insert your flash key in again, the F: drive will change its name to PKBACK, or Removable Disk, or even to the brand name of the flash key such as "Kingston".

Steps for disconnecting your USB Flash Key


Step 1: Make sure that you have saved the documents you have been working on and then close them by clicking on the big red X in the upper right-hand corner.

Step 2: Once everything is closed, click once on the little green arrow at the bottom right of the task bar (see picture).
brymz_4.jpg

A message in a box will appear saying "Safely Remove Hardware", or "Safely remove USB Mass Storage Device". Click once on that message.

Step 3: It should now be safe for you to take out your Flash key.


Note : If you want to be certain it is safe, go into "my computer" and check to make sure that the "removable disk" and drive letter your flash key was assigned have disappeared.


Note: If the green arrow still appears, click on it again and it should disappear. If a message appears saying "The device 'Generic Volume' cannot be stopped right now. Try stopping the device later", you will want to make sure that all of your programs or documents on your flash key are closed out.

If you re-try it and the message still appears, push Ctrl + Alt + Delete on your keyboard and then shutdown your computer. You can then take out your flash key or you can re-boot the computer and follow the same process above. You should then be able to remove it safely.

Flash drives are a very useful storage device because of their reliability and memory capacity. Learning how to use them may take a little experience, but once understood the flash drive can assist you in many ways with not only your data files, but using software that the host computer does not have. Also remember that a flash key is not indestructible, so you will want to use more than one physical location to store your data, such as your computer's hard drive, etc.

How do you save files on a sandisk cruzer flash drive?


Insert the cruzer into the usb port. You should see a message pop up and say new hardware found and then flash off. It may also say usb memory or storage device or even recognize it as the cruzor. This recognition process is fairly quick say 5-10 seconds. After that the computer knows what the cruzer is and its ready for use.

The cruzer is now seen as another drive or storage drive on your computer. Your hard drive is usually C , the CD/DVD would be D drive and the cruzer would be seen as E. If you are in a program and want to save to the cruzer you open the file/save and you should see E drive or Cruzer if not click on my computer and look for it there. Once you find it just click on it and then hit save/ok. Thats all there is to using one. Once you know how to find it as a save option or a loading option then you just treat it like a hard drive.

Once you get it sorted out you will use it a lot. They are very handy.
