Something odd has just happened with my mail.
I previously had both the hotmail account and an MS Exchange work email account loaded onto the Win8 CP mail.
Now the exchange account has disappeared, and there is no longer a button anywhere to allow me to add the account back in.
Anyone have any suggestions?
I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.
I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.
You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)
are u using the metro app? if that's the case;
in your Metro Mail App, open up the charms bar (win key+C) and go to settings or accounts, from there you can add new or delete...
Im not on my Win8 right now to post screenies, but I think u get the point.
I'm having an issue with my media sharing options in Network and Sharing on all my computers on my network. When I go to network & sharing to turn on media sharing for some reason by itself it gets turn off?? This is frustrating to have to continually reset it on all computers on my network. They all have the same Home Group password, but still it gets turn off somehow. Can anyone Please tell me what am I doing wrong or what the problem is causing this to happen???
I assume you are talking about Media Player setup. Did you see this?
My internal HDD failed due to a sudden power outage. I can hear beeping sounds like the motor is trying to spin the drive up and failing to do so. This drive contains all my important data ( documents, photos and videos), I'm thinking of taking it to a data recovery center, How much would it cost me for a data recovery service? I've been recommended to WeRecoverData data recovery labs by an IT person, Anyone have experience with them? Any help advice? Thanks in advance.
Likely thousands. Hopefully in the future you will make backups of important data.
If it was killed by the power outage, you can probably fix it yourself by purchasing the exact same drive on ebay or wherever and swap the PCB.
My media sharing option constantly keeps turning off by itself even after I have reset it to share my media on all networked (4) computers and even while watching movies from another computer on my network, I have also enabled media sharing thru Windows media player and it still cuts itself off! can anyone help with this issue??
Which version of Windows do you have? Make sure services for media share are enabled.
You might have to

I have Intel DH77KC, Windows 7 64bit installed, Realtech HD audio, Everything was working fine .. I don't know what happened, last night I plugged my headphone and try to chat with my friend but, mic was not working, its weird, anyhow I noticed that in mixer every thing is good but rear microphone jack is grayed out, I think that is causing the issue.. I don't know why is so, I checked my headphone on my laptop and mic worked fine there, is something wrong with my pc hardware or what is going on please guys I need ur help.
When did this happen? If you know roughly the time period, you can do a system restore to just before that period and that should fix it if it is software based. Also have a look in the Real tech audio 'control panel' and the Windows sound one in case something got disabled.
I recently downloaded the latest Skype for Android to my Motorola Droid M smartphone. When I make a Video Call on Skype there is no option for a Speaker option so I can only hear via the phone earpiece. I have tried using earbuds but the sound can not be heard. I couldn't find any help on the Skype site and others appear to have the same issue. Does anyone know how I can "fix" this myself or how you actually speak with Skype Support?
Post this question here: http://community.skype.com/t5/English/ct-p/English?profile.language=en.
I have an: DIXONH55ITX Socket 1156 Advent Firefly FP 3104 System Motherboard
I'm looking to upgrade for 2 main reasons.
1.) Upgrade my Ram, (as the limit of ram for this motherboard is 4gb.)
2.) More than 1 PCI-E slot. (There's only one on this motherboard.)
But my main question is:
What do I need to take into account when upgrading my Motherboard?
(Compatibility issues etc.)
Also any motherboard recommendations (under £200). As I'm planning on upgrading my computer to a gaming rig.
Any replies would be greatly appreciated.
Not quite understanding you. Are you wanting to keep all other parts and just upgrade mobo, ram and gpu?:
It sounds to me like you are wanting to build an entire new system. If so, give us a budget and what should be included (monitor, windows etc.).

hi all my daughter has told me she used to press the email button on her laptop and access her emails now it doesnt access the emails sorry not uch info .but does anyone have a clue what is wrong or what I could do or try thanks
Does the laptop come w/ a program to customize keyboard settings? Maybe that a look at that. My Logitech keyboard came w/ a program called Setpoint which allows me to choose what email program to open when the button is pressed. I had an eMachine keyboard w/ an email button that opens up the default email program. So that's something else to check. Maybe the computer forgot what the default email program is.
I want to use virtualbox software it says in settings that you need to enable the virtualization option in host system to add more than one cpu.But in the bios i was unable to find the option.Please help me.

I have windows XP. There are instructions on the net to use NTBACKUP.MSI. Even though I downloaded the file the computer can't find the file.
Whats the best way to back up to a portable hard drive on a regular basis?
I also would like to back up my address book to the portable hard drive.
What email program are you using?
I logged into my router (that is, by typing 192.168.1.1 into my browser) and changed my password so random people couldn't log in (the username was still admin, however). I then somehow managed to create a new account with the same username (admin) and the default password (admin), but which wasn't actually and admin. So now I can't login to my original admin account (presumably because it thinks I'm trying to log in to the other account, which doesn't have admin privileges), so I can't change anything and it's annoying.
Sorry if that made no sense, I can clarify it if need be.
Reset the router to its defaults. The manual should tell you how to do this
Hi Guys I just bought an Acer Aspire z- laptop It has windows and a realtek sound card The problem is that I am not getting a good sound from my headphones when I connect them to the laptop I have tried pairs and I face the same issue I tried changing the settings from realtek control panel but there is no specific option for headphones there Also in control panel gt sound gt manage audio devices there is no option for headphones I have selected both quot show disabled devices quot and quot show disconnected devices quot and still i cannot see any option for headphones I sent out a mail laptop for headphones option my No new settings in sound in :( to acer tech support and they said that I have to control my headphones using the quot speakers option quot that I see under control panel gt sound gt manage audio devices Can it be like that I thought I should be seeing all the options since it is a windows feature I have updated all the drivers and all but nothing seems to be working Please help me out over here Thanks in advance Lovish nbsp
Yes, in the Windows 7 Control Panel you will see a "Sound Option". Select headphones and select configure...
So this is my problem:
I have a 500GB Maxtor Hard disk, and I went to install windows xp, but during the installation i saw that it was split into different partitions. I have no idea why but i deleted one of them. Now i think the entire hard disk is screwed up. When i connected it to my laptop using a SATA docking station, under disk management it gives me my C drive which is disk 0 and it gives me the Maxtor hard disk which is disk 1. But disk 1 is split into 100mb, 60Gb and 405.66 GB with the 405.66 being unallocated. What should i do to make it 1 500GB harddisk.
Assuming the disk does not contain an operating system, or any personal data you need, just remove the partitions, so the whole disk is unallocated, then create a simple partition the entire size of the disk e.g. 465GB in size.
Hey guys every time i restart my laptop it wipes all the user profiles, leaves one and wipes all the custom settings on that profile. I have no idea and any help would be greatly appreciated
This might be caused by a virus or other malware infection, a corrupt hard drive or Windows itself is corrupt... Can you do a destructive laptop restore? This is a way that the laptop is put back just like it was when you turned it on when you first bought it
I have noticed that my computer (and many others) have an option called "PCI-LAN" or similar in the BIOS boot menu (when I press F8 I get the option to choose boot device, HDD, CD, USB and PCI-LAN).
I'm just curious, what is this for, and how could I use it?
Not sure about PCI-LAN, sounds like a NIC.
Are you referring to PXE booting?
That is where you set up an image on a server that people can boot from without having the OS actually on their hard drive.
First of all, I don´t know if this is the right spot to ask about hosting, but since Techspot has helped me with a lot of computer related problems, I thought I´d give it a try...
Anyways, I´m about to buy a hosting plan from Hostgator, but I want to use one account to host at least 3 different sites (top domains, like firstpage.com, secondpage.com and thirdpage.com). I know the reselling account would be the most effective, but I don´t need to have a different cPanel for each user.
Can this be done with a Baby plan? I´m going to buy domain names from another company, but I guess that doesn´t matter. I´m new to all this hosting stuff, so any help will be appreciated.
that's all up to the hosting site policies - - don't hold your breath.
the Apache2 web server does this with <VirtualHost: ipaddress:80>
I believe I am talking about quot fake quot raid here To the point I am building a file server using FreeNAS with a PC thats over a few years old I d say around - years RAID best PCIe, option? PCI and cards, wanting to set up a RAID function with this I ve learned after a bit of reading that there are such things as fake raid where the processor actually handle where the data goes and this is fine as these RAID cards, PCI and PCIe, best option? also seem to be much cheaper I m using a bit older mobo can post model later upon request that has SATA ports for RAID or I am considering getting a card to support up to HDDs Here are options I ve been looking at Syba PCI Express SATA II x Ports RAID Controller Card SY-PEX Adaptec RAID SA - Storage controller RAID - Channel - SATA- low profile - MBps - RAID JBOD - PCI Express x SYBA SY-PCI PCI Low Profile SATA II Gb s Controller Card Adaptec -R SA PCI Express X -Port SATA GBS Low-profile Host RAID Controller Now I realize Amazon com doesnt give good descriptions Also is there a RAID function build into FreeNAS I cannot seem to get window shares to work with that so I still need to work that out using nbsp
Here are options I've been looking at.
Syba PCI Express SATA II 4 x Ports RAID Controller Card SY-PEX40008
Adaptec RAID 1430SA - Storage controller (RAID) - 4 Channel - SATA-300 low profile - 300 MBps - RAID 0, 1, 10, JBOD - PCI Express x4
SYBA SY-PCI40026 PCI Low Profile SATA II (3.0Gb/s) Controller Card
Adaptec 2240900-R 1430SA PCI Express X4 4-Port SATA 3GBS Low-profile Host RAID ControllerClick to expand...
Adaptec has been the leader for decades and using the CARD avoids the 'fake-raid' software implementation. One big advantage is the card completes the operation without the assistance of the CPU.
Once you opt for the raid-controller card, you (imo) really ought to go with
SCSI attached devices which give you hotplug support and dynamic raid recovery.[x]
Be carefull: Even Microsoft does not recommend attempting to boot from a Raid.
Raid is a server function to avoid a single point of failure, and even with Raid-1 or Raid-10, you still need a backup system.
[x]The NAS Raid-x is frequently SCSI internally for these reasons
We host a domain 'nabina.com' with brinkster.com and use the same to provide us with emails to all our staff. The 'Servie Provider' provides facility to capture the incoming emails to another account. My concern is the email that our staff send from the individual Pc's in the workgroup/domain which I need to monitor and filter anly selected email. I would like to mention an example the emails that our sales staff send to suppliers must be blocked while to the cutomers should be allowed. Additional features to the device is welcome.
ok guys i believe it was an audio driver. it was called SoundMax. i thought it was something else so i deleted and come to find out i have no more sound! i just wanted to know if anyone can help me please!
Use System Restore to a point before you deleted the audio driver.
Does realtek 184.108.40.20698 have a line-in option ? I'm getting sound from my hi-fi amp through my computer speakers, and its volume is controllable through the keyboard,
but Audacity 1.3.12-beta! shows "error while opening sound device". Volume Mixer (Windows 7), Sound, shows FrontMic and Microphone only as recording devices. What can I do ?
To answer my own question: get on to Acer (in my case) website, and download the HDMI driver for your computer model, soundcard and and version of windows.
I've just installed windows 7 onto my ide hard drive with my sata as a secondary. My sata used to be primary and was the only hard drive I had; now that I've restarted my computer my sata drive no longer shows an assigned letter but looks like it still has the data.
In Disk Management it shows that the sata has a healthy primary partition, but I am given no other options but to delete it. How am I supposed to get that data back?
I want to back up my computer, so I went to START ... ALL PROGRAMS ... ACCESSORIES ... SYSTEM TOOLS ... and there is no option for backup. I tried going to CONTROL PANEL ... PERFORMANCE AND MAINTENANCE ... and there was no option there either. Advice would be appreciated! Thanks!
I'd recommend using third party backup software.
And as a comment, don't put your backups in the same place as the computer you backed up.

Right ok, I have a probably simple request, but its baffling me. I need to have my iPod and PC download emails. But I need it so that, if i delete an email of my iPod, it isn't there on my PC, and vice versa. But I need it too so that if I download the emails to my iPod, I can still access them on my PC.
I'm using a firefox extension called SimpleMail, that has options for POP3 and IMAP, and is useful and quick compared to thunderbird for me.
I've tried it, but just can't figure it out! A detailed step-by-step guide, would be HUGELY appreciated. Probably put this in the wrong section too, but its the best I could think off.
Basicaly any email account with IMAP would be able to do that: Gmail, MobileMe & even Yahoo! offer such services.
Emails are available on all the machines using the IMAP account & even your replies are copied over to all the machines so you can still access them from another machine than the one where you wrote them from.

i was on disk management on my computer and i right clicked on my portable harddrive and accidently clicked delete partition how do i fix this. my hardrive wont show up in my computer or disk management so i cant partition it. i dont need to recover the data i already have it all backed up.
Unplug and re plug in the external drive while you are in Disk Management and see if an unknown device appears. You can also leave it plugged in and restart you computer. Do you get the "bing, Bong" USB connection sounds?
A user has been using her laptop for several years and uses Outlook for her POP3 email.
When we installed a server and joined her laptop to the domain she was unable to see her email without logging out of the server and logging back into her local account.
How do I let her domain profile be the same as her local profile?
You can't, it's considered as a different user. Just take the settings from Outlook and import them into the other account name.

at work I have deleted some files from a network drive. I have tried recuva, undelete and one or one or two others. they will not let me scan a network drive.
It isn't a major problem - and it would be quicker to recreate the items that to manually get the drive out and connect it locally - but is there free software that would let me recover deleted files over a network?
Have you seen this software:
Well there is a notification box in realtek Sound Manager's Audio/I-O -> Analog -> [wrench icon] -> Connector Settings in which i need to place a tick in "Disable front panel jack detection" but unfortunately i am unable to see that option in my driver. There is only one option in there which says "enable auto popup dialog, when device has been plugged in."
Does anyone know how to bring that option back?
Note: I have uninstalled the old driver and installed the latest driver just few weeks ago which apparently means every setting has been put back to default.
Here is a screencap
Your screenshot link should start with http not hxxp... Are you using the right driver for your motherboard? What is your motherboards model number? Do you have the case front panel audio connector removed from the motherboard, or is it in the wrong place?
The numeric option on my Toshiba A21m laptop is somewhat turned on. How do I bring it back to the normal keys?What happens is when I try to type J or K or L, the numbers 1 or 2 or 3 comes up. How can I change it back to the alpha keys? Thanks
Look for a key labelled Num Lock or something similar (perhaps an arrow with a number inside). You may have to use shift or the fn key to toggle it.

Ok I tried everything to repair an XP install on my Qosmio GA - The recovery disk was a joke and wouldn t work I decided to skip all of the DMI junk I read about and clean install a copy of XP Put the Raid drivers on a floppy and proceeded with the install Setup would not install on the boot partition and gave me a quot page fault quot error I went into the bios and changed disk to JBOD from RAID disk was already now on Drive Deleted 1? HDDs Two 0 Drive partition in access cant System. set to JBOD Reentered setup and at the point where you select the partition to install to only one partition was shown This was not a good thing as I backed up all of my data from the C drive Disk to Two HDDs in System. Deleted partition on Drive 0 now cant access Drive 1? the F Drive Disk I went back to the BIOS and set Drive back to Raid and started the Setup procedure over again Two partitions were showing this time but Disk was not showing an F drive designator The question Did I lose all of my data on the second gb drive in the system Is my F drive recoverable Help nbsp
I think it depends on what Raid type you were using, some good info of different types here: http://www.techspot.com/vb/showthread.php?p=597010
Personally I don't like Raid all that much, as I don't think it's fantastic for data recovery or backup (which was its actual purpose, plus speed)
When composing an e-mail in Outlook 2007 (Vista), the typing never wraps round to the next line; it types as one continuous line from left to right. What do you do to change this back to multi-line?

A collegue of mine had a file deleted from a shared network folder, an excel file, and we believe it was deleted on purpose by someone wanting to cause problems.
We have checked recycle bin and performed an extensive search - the file is gone, and she definitely did not delete it accidentally.
What I would like to know is, is there anyway of recovering the file without 3rd party software (unable to dl and install anything on the works system), and is there anyway to discover who deleted it...or at the least, which pc on the network it was accessed and deleted from? The file itself can be re-recreated, so its not recovering the data that is the main issue...mainly finding out who deleted it.
Any adivce appreciated, and apologies if this in the wrong section..it seemed like the best fit!
There are ways to recover it until that space is overwritten. And forensics experts can tell when it was done and who was online at the time, but you will likely be unable to do so.
If you have a good administrator for the system, that administrator can narrow it down to who was online... but that depends on your security system and administrator.

Good morning I have a HP Pavillion Desktop computer at home email with Trouble and I recently signed up for Comcast high-speed internet Trouble with email which is run thru a cable modem The internet works great and is very fast Here is my problem I cannot do any kind of email If I try to click on the login button to sign in to our account it says quot page cannot be displayed quot It does this if you try to do any kind of email This is the first time that I have ever had this problem on my computer We didn t have internet on the computer for about a year and a half I Trouble with email also went to Apple com the other day and tried to download the latest versio of iTunes and it said quot page cannot be displayed quot Someone suggested turning off my Windows firewall I really didn t want to do that but I tried it and it didn t solve anything My Norton Security is out of date and needs to be updated but I don t know if that would have anything to do with it or not Any help would be greatly appreciated Thank you nbsp
You are a little vague on specifics.
Did you create a new Email account with Comcast during the install?
Are you trying to use that account or an 'old' account on another ISP?
Do you also use a router? Kind/type?
Right. Iv got a Dell DE051 Computer. I originally had soundMAX on it. I deleted it out of my control pannel (add or remove programmes)
I also removed the drivers. So iv got nothing now. How can i get this back ?
Its greatly appreciated if you can take the time to tell me.
if its a sound card and not onboard then you can try taking the sound card out of the pci slot and putting it back in, boot up and see if you comp recognizes it.
just make sure your computer is unplugged when you do this

hey, just fixed my audio, and plugged my mic in. Whenever I try to record / chat to a friend online, they find my mic very quiet.
I know this mic accepts the +20DB option in vista, so why not xp?
I can check the box, yet when I open it up again it is not selected?
Thanks in advance
Ok, first things first... What are your system specs? What is your audio type, on board or sound card?
Arghh, cant be any dumber to delete the wrong partition TWICE!! i managed to do it, i did it with winxp cd.
I have two hdds both have only one partition and i deleted the wrong one to make it into 2 partitions, is it possible to recover all the files after partition is deleted, its not formated yet no new partition created, if its possible to recover from this will the windows be usable or should i reinstall just to make sure everything works like it did before.
Going to install OpenSuse but i still want my stuff back and maybe use that crappy Windows when i need to.
Thanks to whoever can help me resolve this problem.

Hi I am a small business owner running laptops and a desktop pc one of the laptops is running xp although will hopefully upgrade it to vista soon I am looking to purchase a NAS device mostly for media sharing and syncronization between pc s but would like to be able to access my email accounts via outlook NAS email knowledge and lacking. although would consider another product with same basic functionality eg local storage tasks calendar etc I am using googlemail for all my NAS and email knowledge lacking. accounts I am aware that there are several NAS devices out there that let you connect and manage NAS and email knowledge lacking. files remotely over the internet It seems that to me that it should therefor be relatively simple to have all outlook or alternative files stored on a remotely accessible NAS to synchronize accross all pc s automatically on login hereby removing the need for an expensive hosted service such as MS exchange I have googled just about every variation I can think of to find the relevant information but to no avail I am fairly savvy for an unqualified home user but lack the deeper understanding of NAS and outlook to get through this one on my own If this is possible please give some advice on setup and the best hardware fro the job Lastly if the NAS doubled as a print server that would be cool too MAny thanks in advance for your help Best regards Don nbsp
NAS devices (Network Attached Storage) just attach to your LAN using the File Sharing,
Map Network Drives capability.
1) Internet access to one of YOUR LAN drives is a big security hole, so that's not the
2) depending upon the software you use to send/receive, sharing email files can easily corrupt them and you lose everything.
If I wanted Internet access to my email, I would use a Webbased email solution
(like gmail), configure it to retain all down loaded email, and the use my pc
to access the gmail pop3 account.
As an experiment, I tried to recover some deleted test .jpg files on my
SanDisk ultra card, using their own recovery software "Rescue Pro" which came with it. Result, total failure.
I also tried Serif's "Search and Recover" but again failed to find any.
Wonder if this recovery software is any good at all? Views?
Best not to review Recovery programs when you are trying to recover your specific data (on your system or drive), that may be too corrupt to recover now anyway.
There are may other alternative softwares though like this one (free for up to four folders down) or many others here
By using so many Recovery softwares you may then be able to give a personal choice of the best one (ideally that worked, in your case)
Can anyone guide me about Video email marketing? Is it possible to customized banners and links with my video emails?

Hey Guys I screwed up as follows:
I was fooling around with my graphics drivers and accidentally deleted them. A screen popped up to reboot the computer. It rebooted.
Now whenever I restart my computer, first a microsoft screen appears, then it appears to load but I have no on-screen visual as i get a monitor error message (Not Optimum Mode, Recommended 1920x1200, 60Hz), I am therefore unable to download and install any updated drivers.
What Can I do to restore my Drivers or at least get a visual to Re-install them?
I'm running Windows Vista, and one of the newer NVidia Graphics Cards.
Please help. Thanks.

take out the new card and reboot. restart (whatever happens) and go into BIOS, check your onboard graphics is enabled, save and reboot. ...you were still using the onboard graphics by he way...tell me when you've done the above..
I was trying to make a direct connection between my 2 computers using this method (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/305621) but on my laptop, the option for "connect directly to another computer" is grayed out. How do I enable this? I enabled network file sharing option but the button is still grayed out.
You need a cross-over network cable (I always get this confused !)
Then just run NetSetup (you can also create a floppy network install disk with this method)
I accidentally deleted an entire folder of files from my USB flash drive, not realizing that deleted files do not go to a "Recycle Bin" like they would from hard drives ... they are apparently lost... Is there a way to retrieve them that I'm not aware of?

I'm afraid not... Be more careful next time. Keep a copy of the flash drives contents on a hard drive
I know it probably is, but I thought I would ask anyway. I got an email to 'Test' and 'Keep' a Dell XPS laptop. So what kind of scam is it?

With regards to your problem, try restarting the router by unplugging it, waiting about 10 seconds then plugging it in again. Make sure that the settings are saved on it though otherwise you'll have to put them all in again.

Im 14 and i need some help.
I was on my computer and it was running slow so I went to control panel and then to add/remove hardware, thinking i had to much stuff on my computer so deleting some un-necessary items would help it go faster. Well, I ended up ACCIDENTALLY deleting Multimedia Audo Controller. Now I Get no sound.
When I restart my computer or scan for new hardware, the computer says it found new hardware-Mutimedia Audio Controller, but in order to reinstall it, I need a CD-ROM I guess. Can anyone help. Do I need a CD-ROM or what. i need help but most of all I NEED SOUND
Hello and welcome to Techspot.
First go HERE for a list of things we need to know, and enter them into user profile at the top of any page(click on edit profile).
Now depending on whether you have onboard sound or a seperate soundcard.
You will need to go to either you mobo manufactureres website, or your soundcard manufacturers website, and download the sound drivers from there.
Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
A year back, my friend volunteered to clean up my computer, so he went to add or remove programs from the control panel. Afterwards, my audio did not work for my computer. My friend didn't tinker with anything else, so I suspect he accidentally deleted my audio software. What would I have to do to get audio back on my computer.
If it helps, I run Windows XP and have a Dimension 2400 desktop.
What kind of audio card do you have, your most likely missing the drivers that came with it. I don't understand if its been a year why you late so long. Because you could just done a system restore point before and it should then work again.
my computer was acting slow so my sister had the bright idea to delete programs we didnt use.. now that she has done this we have no sound and error messages saying no sound devices are found. She emptied the recycle bin so I wasnt able to see exactly what she deleted. Is there anything I can do to fix this? please help !
All you have to do is reinstall the Sound card drivers,either from -
1.A CD with the drivers on it.
2.Download them form the web site of your the maker of the sound card.
3.Go to Control panel/Add hardware wizard -
Windows might find the drivers, or it might not.
As for slow computer -
Do full antispyware scans (the No.1 cause of slow computers) and run CCleaner.
Also Defragment the Hard Drive.

My husbands aunt has dial up, we set her email account up but now several months later it is telling her that someone else has that account and she is unable to send email, this is the 2nd time this has happened. How can this be fixed so it doesn't happen again?
Hi Twinkletla1 and welcome to the TS Forum :wave:
You dont say what email provider you have, if its with an ISP or with one such as MSN hotmail, Your thread title mentions MSN so I'll hazard a guess that she either hasnt used in for more than once in 30 days and as such the account has been shut down, this is to prevent unused accounts cluttering up the MSN server and filling with junk mail.
To keep a hotmail account active you have to login regularly, about once a fortnight at least.
If its another provider than please post back and let us know.

I wonder if anyone can help. I have been receiving emails without any problems but when I try to open some of the attachments, all I get is a page of gobble-de-**** nonesense.
Someone suggested that I save these emails as a 'eml' insted of a 'txt'.
I have no idea what this means and even less of an idea of how to do it.
Can anyone help?....
What e-mail program are you using?
What are these attachments supposed to be? (You should never open an attachment with unknown contents!)
Who sent you these letters and what e-mail program did they use?
I went to the add adn remove to delte a couple of games then like an ***** i delted some other stuff. Now no sound and when i click on volume control it saids no active sound mixer devices....how can i fix this pease?
Hello and welcome to Techspot.
You need to reinstall the sound drivers.
If your computer is pre built such as Dell/HP/Compaq etc, you can get the sound drivers from your computer manufacturers website.
If your computer is custom built and has onboard sound, you can get the drivers from your mobo(motherboard) manufacturers website.
If you have a separate soundcard, then you should have a cd that came with the card. This will have the drivers on it.

I am wondering which combination would produce a better gaming result. I have enough money to either get a core 2 duo 2.13ghz and an 8800GTX or a core 2 duo 2.4ghz and an 8800GTS. Which would be better for gaming?
I would look into the performance sum of each system. What percentage of performance is greater? If the performance difference in the vid cards is least, get the faster cpu/lesser vid card. If the performance difference is least noticeable between the cpus, get the faster vid card setup.
I recently erased an important document on my Sandisk drive. I've tried several free trials to recover my files but they don't allow me to actually get it. They're also very expensive (like, for example, RescuePro). Does anyone know how I can recover a file that I deleted two weeks ago??? Thanks, I'd greatly appreciate the help.
the chances of recovering it on a flash drive are slim. The longer you wait to recover a file the less of a chance there is. Try using a file recovery program. There are many free ones on the net. If you haven't written or used the drive, you might be successful.
I would like to know if there are any tools available on the internet to trace an email.It's a junk mail.Please help.
You can check e-mail headers via the options button while in an e-mail. Copy and paste the text from one and we'll see if we can trace its origin (blank out any important network information to do with yourself or your company such as public IP address if you like).

I accidentally deleted my second hard drive. Is there a way to reverse to accident? Preferable Free.
OS: WinXP installed on HDD1: 40 Gig
HDD2: 200 GIG - Deleted
or you could just download Winhex and that will solve all your issues even if there are no hard drive flags on the drive you will still be able to get most of the info back.
i accidently deleted my sound device and i cant get no kinds of sound or nothing, so how can i get the sound back on my puter?
how did that happen?? is your sound onboard audio, or do you have a seperate sound card? if its onboard and you deleted the audio files you can try restarting the computer and see if you get the found new hardware message, and reinstall that way. otherwise youll have to find out what audio device is onboard and get the drivers off the web
I did a complete system restore or whatever you call it and never got all my files backed up. Is there anyway to get them?
There are programs out there that can recover files that haven't been overwritten. Check out a program called GetDataBack.
a few days ago my i do option? how reverse this friend was using my computer to test some how do i reverse this option? SATA device how do i reverse this option? i went in the other room to watch a movie with some other friends When i came back i found that my IDE drives were not there and my SATA drive wasent being shown in windows My windows partion is setup on my raptors in raid so those werent touched Now all my other drives that arent showing up in windows ARE showing up in how do i reverse this option? the bios and the boot screen So i asked my friend what he did and he said he disabled the drives in my bios cause he needed to do something he hasent had time to get to it to fix it I tried looking in the bios myself to see if i can figure it out but i cant I want to do this sorta myself but i havent figured it out thus far and i need some assistance although im sure its quite simple Can somebody help me to reenable these drives so they show up in windows cause they are there i see all of them in the bios and post thx Not Shown in Windows but are in bios IDE Primary GB Maxtor Diamondmax SATA GB Western Digital IDE Secondary Pioneer DVR- B Shown in windows x Plextor SA x GB Raptors Raid Windows Link to Manual http us dfi com tw Support Download manual download us jsp PRODUCT ID amp STATUS FLAG A amp SITE NA nbsp
again, another thread with someone mixing IDE and SATA drives. While it will work most of the time, when an error occurs XP will default to IDE and write OS data on the IDE drive, thereby jacking the system up. This can cause serious errors making data recovery difficult.
Solution. USE one type of drive or the other, but not both.
about a week ago i deleted my mums user account cauase she never uses it and she had nothing on it apart from all her photos that i forgot about untill just after i deleted her account, i was wondering if there was anyway possible i could get them back,
When you deleted the account, you were asked whether to keep the user's files or not. What did you say?
You can try any file undeletion utility, but after a week.. I'd say there's a good chance of only some recoverable files or none at all.

i would go with an intel core2 duo processor, asus 680i motherboard, and at least a gig of corsair DDR2 800 ram, in dual channel config. i reccomend two smaller hard drives as apposed to one big one, so you could run them in a fast raid 0 array. raid 0 combines the capacities of the disks involved, so two 160GB drives would give you single 320GB volume. as for the power supply...go with a name brand (that's important for pretty much all computer parts) known for quality, such as antec or PC power & cooling.
if you get a single video card, i would say get the antec neopower 550w, which is quiet, efficient, and supports modular cabling.
as for the USB usage you mentioned, your USB controller (mobo) is going to be the limiting factor in determining how much power can be drawn.
i would edit your post and remove your email address, this is a public webpage and can be viewed by anyone.

Anyone have luck booting an operating system from a HDD via the front bay on a C600/610 or similar? I had read something about this option while looking for info on this model. I also am a bit in the dark on the additional slot near the memory on the bottom, what can be installed here... It looks similar to the memory interface but also has two unhooked connectors toward the palmrest side. I assume this is miniPCI slot? I am new to laptops this year, in fact, having picked up a few used ones cheap, this is one off eBay in the last week.... I am yet to have it fully operational.
UPDATE: Paragon33 tells me I must have some incomplete info, It is possible via another port but not the CD/Floppy front bay. I can't recall where I got that information. Anyway, sorry for any confusion passed along

I own a C600, the slot next to the memory is for a MiniPCI card, although if you want to use a Wifi Nic you will need to buy a pigtail connector to link it to the inbuilt aerial, these cables are like rocking horse sh*t to find.
As for booting from the front slot, I would need to look into that, as I am looking for a way to have 2 HD's in the machine, i'll email Paragon later and see what he has to say.
lastly watch the power lead on the C600. if you let it hang down for to long the cable breaks about 2cm from the plug, I have gone through 3 PSU's already, mainly coz I sit on the couch and the cable hangs down, Dell fixed this on later models by including a small clip to support the cable, I now use a wire tie....
So yeah i know that was stupid of me, i was going thru my add/remove programs and thought it was somethingi had downloaded from the net but boy was i wrong. I do not know any of the model types or anything like that but if told where to look im sure i can find it. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
Do you have a driver cd that came with the computer? You probably only deleted the software that controls the sound, not the drivers. You just need to reinstall the program from the Drivers or install cd. You can look in Control Panel>System>Hardware>Device Manager click the + sign next to Sound, Video and Game Controllers and your sound card will be listed. If not restart the computer and let the computer find the sound card and hopefully the drivers.
I have a Western Digital USB Harddrive Model:WD1200B014 and i accidentally deleted the partition when i was reinstalling windows on my pc. I installed XP on the hdd in the computer and left the drive as unpartitoned space. I had transfered all of my important data on to this drive and i was wondering if it was possible to repartition the drive without formatting it? and if possilbe can i do it without spending too much money? possibly for free? i have read of using MEPIS (linux live cd) but i dont know if that will work without destroying the drive. I would like to save the data without having to buy a program and a new harddrive but if thats whats necessary than please tell me the best one. I used some demos and i can see that the data is there i just want to save it. Thank you for any help you can give.

anyone know a solution to get my computer back? I think my bios allows booting on a exturnal hd should i boot windows on that then try to do a bios update thing? or any suggestions on how i might get around my proublem?????
any help would be great
Can you at least get into the bios as soon as you turn on the computer? If you can just let the computer find the ide drives in the bios. Save and exit then try to boot again...

My son was installing some Canon software for his new Canon Powershot A530 camera. The computer would recognize the camera but couldn't load the drivers for some reason. He then decided he should remove some of the current USB devices using the Device Manager. He stated he deleted three or four items titled "USB Root HUb" Now none of the USB devices I own work (two HP printers and a Maxtor external drive). Also every time I start the computer the New Hardware Found Wizard pops up five times. Each time the hardware is "unknown". When I look at the Device Manager I see a yellow "?" next to "Other devices" and five yellow "?"s intended to Other devices all called "Unknown device". Anyone have any ideas?
he deleted the drivers for those hardware. Reinstall the drivers.
I have setup my computer (WinXP Home) to have two user accounts. I've noticed that often (maybe always) whichever account is initially logged into when the computer is first booted up seems to be the only account from which the CD or DVD drives can be accessed. What can I do to correct this?

If you are using xp, right click on "my computer", select manage, then storage, then disk management, and see if you can re-activate the missing partition there.

Hey there First off my specs are in my sig Right my system is sorta bottlenecked by my CPU i plan on getting a option to Overclock No new one amd in august but i wanna get a bit more out my system until then So im wanting No option to Overclock to overclock the one i got but i seem to be having a hell No option to Overclock of a time doing it Now i know a wee bit about overclocking I know that the FSB multiplier voltage etc are the targets in the BIOS And i read up that the HTT defines the clock speed as well on AMD rigs still researching bout that though rolleyes But to get to the point i have no settings in my BIOS for overclocking I know what i m after and it isnt there Also in the manual on the first page it says a bit about the Versions it on an says next to it what it includes Check this ------------------------------------------------------------------ V Removing overclocking function Adding ATI RAID and Surroundview ------------------------------------------------------------------ pricks i am now on version which is a new one not long realeased and it has fixed a few problems for me but they havnt added the overclocking function in And there are no jumpers to alter the clock either The closest thing i saw to overclocking was the memory control which only gave me this Dram Configuration Timing Mode Auto Memclock index value MHZ mhz CAS Latency Tel The bottom were grayed out until you select Manual But i wont go into detail here if it means nothing There was also options to alter Gfx clock from Async and Sync an a few more options there but since thats not relevent i wont go into that So does anyone know any good Windows Overclocking tools i could use I looked for ages but the ones i got either just didnt work or werent up to date enough for AMD processors one even said i had a socket haha Or if i m going in the wrong direction please tell me Cheers guys nbsp
I take it that msi's fuzzy logic wont work?
Also, are you using a stock processor cooler? If so, i wouldn't recommend overclocking anyway.
Please help me. Iwas trying to format a USB flash drive but I accidentally deleted the partition. It shows in Windows Disk Management as "online" but does not give me any options for formatting it. I am now not sue what to do PLEASE HELP!
The things we delete are not going into the the recycle bin anymore.
I used to be able to delete, it would go to recycle bin, and I could retrieve it. Now it is deleted immediately.
I looked up information to fix it ==I went to the recycle bin, right click, & Properties. THE BOX IS NOT CHECKED to delete immediately.
The space amount is OK. What is wrong???
Take a look in Windows explorer,and see if there`s more than one instance of the recycle bin.The files may have gone into the other one.You might have to uncheck the "Hide system files" box in Tools/Folder options/View menu to see it.
