Hello all,

I need some advice.

I recently replaced my old harddisk to a new harddisk. The old harddisk has windows xp home and other programs installed.

I did not format the old harddisk, I only took out the old harddisk and replaced it with a new harddisk. I then installed windows xp home to the new harddisk.

While I am installing programs on the new harddisk, I discovered that one of the programs do not allow me to activate the program license because I have previously activated the program on my old windows. I need to do a proper uninstallation to release the license, then I can activate the license of the program in the new harddisk.

My question is, can I take out my current new harddisk, replace it with the old harddisk, boot up as normal into the old harddisk windows, uninstall the program inside the old harddisk, then replace the old hardisk with my new harddisk again.

Will I be able to access the old windows on the old harddisk?
Will it mess up my current windows/programs settings?
Will my current new harddisk windows be able to work as normal after accessing the old harddisk windows?
I thought of accessing the old harddisk as a slave, but I do not know if it is possible to access the old harddisk and do a proper uninstall of the program?
Is there any better way of uninstalling the program on my old harddisk?

Thanks in advance.

A:Accessing Win XP on old harddisk to uninstall programs after installing new harddisk

you have to swap out the drive completely. at no time should you have both hdd plugged in.

repeat, do not run them as master and slave. run each hdd individually at each time only.........

Hi everyone... I have a new dilemma. I'm grabbed the data with this link and entering it into Excel. I did text to columns because I need to find specific cells (snowfall totals and departures). So I used a formula as arrow points to, to find these cells. I set all this up this morning..

When I just refreshed the new data this afternoon I realized it went back to one merged column.

3 questions:

1. Is there an easier way to grab that specific snow data from either the web itself and enter it into excel OR refreshed each time in excel without staying as one column?

2. Do I simply have to do text to columns each time? (twice a day and 30 different tabs!) 30 NWS Offices.

3. Why when I hit refresh all the program froze?

Thanks so much!

Not sure if anyone might know but:

I have come across 2 different software programs where the numerals in the Version number are seperated by comma's, instead of periods.

Wondered if the comma's could cause problems with functions like updates etc OR if something on my computer could have caused this to occur.

Thank you for your time,

Here is my system breakdown:
- Laptop Computer with 1 Harddisk (3 Partitions: C, D, E)
- Running Windows XP SP3
- Virus/Malware Scan: Deemed CLEANby Avast

HISTORY:
- Was installed with Windows Vista on C: partition
- Was installed with OSX (via osx86) on D: partition
- E partition is a FAT32 partition to swap files from Vista to OSX

- I got sick of Vista, and bought myself an iMac so I decided to convert the whole laptop back to XP.

- I formatted D drive while in Windows Vista to FAT32 as it wouldn't let me format to NTFS. I assume it has something to do with the fact that OSX was installed on it.

- After backing-up everything, I reinstalled Windows XP (SP2) via the installation disk I got when I first bought the Laptop.

- In the setup, I deleted the C partition, and selected to install XP to the unlocated space. I selected to fully format (not Quick) the new partition in NTFS.

- After install, everything is working fine so I reinstall all my drivers/programs, and have been working on it with no problems.

- That was 4 months ago.


PROBLEMS:

- Few days ago, I remembered that my D and E partitions are both FAT32 and that they should be formatted to NTFS since I'm not installing OSX on it again.

- I move all my files in D drive out to other partitions and try to format it. And i get the error "Windows was unable to complete the format".

I need to shrink one partition, partition D, and extend partition C with the newly unallocated space. I can shrink D without any problems, however, for some reason the two partitions are seperated by a small recovery drive that i can not delete. Any advice about getting the two partitions next to each other or how to extend the drive otherwise?

A:Repartioning when the drives are seperated by a recovery drive

The Microsoft rule is that a drive or partition to the right of the C: drive, or whatever drive you want to extend, must be Unallocated Space to extend that drive.
The recovery partition, to the right of the C: drive, is used to restore your computer to Factory Defaults if there is disaster.
There are 3rd party utilities like Easeus Partition Master, or Minitool Partition Wizard that may allow you to do this, but it may make the Recovery Partition unusable.
If you have Windows install media, and do not care about using the Recovery Partition, then you can right click the Recovery Partition in Disk Management and Delete Volume. Making it Unallocated Space, then you can Right click the C: drive and choose to Extend Volume into the Unallocated Space. Be sure to backup in case this goes wrong.
The other alternative is to get another HDD that is larger,(ie) 2TB drive. And Clone the old HDD to the new, replace the old with the new and be back in business with a much larger drive. You then can keep the old drive as a backup, or you can format it and use it for storage.

Hello,

In VB Express, what is the easiest way to read data from a text file, when the data is seperated by either a couple spaces or commas. So far i have been using:

Using sw As StreamReader = New streamReader("C:\test.txt")
dim line as string = sr.readLine()
while not (line is nothing)
...
line = sr.readLine()
end while
End using

to read in lines from files but what do you do when you want multiple pieces of data from the same line seperated by commas or large spaces such as:

Data like this: [Name, Age, Country]
Jim, 23, Canada
Mike, 27, Canada

Or data like this: [Episode Title Air Date]
100 This is ep one Jan 1
101 episode two Jan2
102 the third episode Jan5

Thanks in advance.

Hey guys,

I have another ravishing question for you. I have many (and I mean many) files where the words within the filename are separated not by spaces but rather by periods.

Example:
My.Summer.Vacation.mkv

This is because my family uploads movies and other content on sites like Rapidshare and Hotfile, in which the filename cannot contain spaces. Therefore people use periods to separate the words of a given file.

My question is the following, is there a way to index my hard drives using either Windows 7 search or even Google Desktop in order to return a search result for the word "vacation" in my above example. At the moment it does not return a result since the word vacation is not separated by spaces.

As per my usual etiquette, if anyone helps me figure this out, I will post images of how to do so in the replies section of this posts.

Thanks for any input,

Hello,

Re: Win98SE - Intel 465 Mhz

The harddisk in my PC is 8 GB of which only 2,56 GB is still available now.
From I similar PC (done away in the meantime) I still have a 8 GB IDE harddisk.
and want to place it in my PC.
Please mind that I have never opened a PC sofar.

a) I don't know to what electronic circuit-cable it must be connected (wondering about serial and parallel)

b) then this second harddisk must somehow be connected to and made visisable to the system (by cables I think; however what cables, new ones or
already present)

When I tried to google this subject I only found items on partitioning etc, not
about how to get and connect a second harddisk inside a PC.
Furthermore I have no idea whether there are special well-known problems
related to having a seond harddisk installed (e.g. very slow system)

Advises will be highly aprreciated.

I purchased 64MB of RAM to bring my memory from 64MB to 128MB and my computer hasn't crashed ONCE since I got XP! But having two operating systems on one 10 gig hardrive and lots of preinstalled programs such as office has taken its toll and I was warned the other day that my harddisk was nearly full! I deleted all my unnessesary files and managed to get back 1 gig of space but I'm still not happy and would like to get a new 20gig hardrive. It makes more sense to use my recovery disk to return my computer to the way it was when it left the factory and reinstall windows XP on the new harddrive leaving my old operating system on the old C:\ and installing all my programs into the new harddrive. I have two questions about this:

1) Will my computer become dual-boot which i DONT want to happen I want the same setup as I have know but with XP installed on the new harddrive?

2) Will I be able to call my new harddrive B:\ as I don't have a 5 1/2 floppy drive installed and would prefer to have things organised and call it that, if not what will my drive call itself as default as I already have A,C,D,Q,R drive letters already taken?

I had to do a clean reinstall of Windows 7 as my PC was getting slower and slower and really bloated. After the OS install I also installed FF, Thunderbird, Alibre Design (170Mb installer), MoI (16Mb installer) and Avira. Not a lot, right?

It seems though that only 129Gb of my 148Gb harddisk is still available. 19Gb for an OS and a few piddly programs?!

A:What is using my harddisk space?

Don't know if this is the reason but installers are usually much smaller than the actual program. Just as an example, the free Nitro PDF reader says the installer is 28MB, but the installation footprint is 106MB, and it can use up to 335MB of available hard drive space.

A:harddisk getting low a virus how do i fix it

If you only have essential data on that disk I would recommend getting an external drive and transfer data in order to take the load off the other drive. A full HDD is a slow one because the read/write head has to scan the whole platter in order to retrieve data. SSDs don't have this problem. Otherwise, the best way to find out why you have low disk space, is to look and see how many restore points you have. If you have your data backed up on another disk (which I recommend). You can delete some of the restore points up to the most recent one. However, I don't recommend doing this unless your confident on the recent restore point. These restore points can take up a lot of space. Other than that, you can go into the 'add/remove programs' and remove whatever you don't need. On the other hand, If you are worried about a virus, I would recommend you seek an analyst in the security forum.

i bought a custom made pc with intel i3 processor, 2 TB or hard disk and 2 GB or ram.

I am not sure why... but i have a felling that 2 GB of RAM is not enough.

FYI
Windows explorer crashed when i visit a specific directory of the a drive. that particular folder has around 100 Videos(Movies) in different formats (mkv, mp4, avi, wmv). The same folder can be accessed through VLC open window.

Problem
Window explorer crashed and asks to restart when opening a specific folder.

A:2 TB of harddisk - what RAM is recommended?

you probably want more, but how about helping us to help you by filling in your system specs>
Update your SevenForums System Specs
User CP (located on the top menu bar) |
Your Profile | Edit System Spec (left-hand column)

To gather info, use Speccy (my favorite) or SIW or System Info

In the System Manufacturer Block, enter:
Manufacturer and Model and
ADD the word laptop, desktop, netbook or tablet.
For example:
Toshiba Satellite L305D notebook.

Provide full windows version info, for example:
MS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit

Use the ?Other Info? block for Optical Reader,
Mouse, touchpad, wifi adapter, speakers, monitor, etc

Scroll down and click on SAVE CHANGES.

You will find that in Speccy, you can select info from the display
using your mouse/touchpad and then paste that info into your specs.

SIW is a marvelous program, but the free version does not offer
this capability.

A:HARDDISK not bad sector

If you would please list the modle number of your laptop, so we can see if it's a PATA or SATA drive. Or the exact modle number of the drive.

If it's a PATA drive make sure that the little jumper on the drive is set to master or cable select.

that happen to me too harddisk space gone so fast.

i think it is because of a harddisk virus that eat your harddisk space .

so maybe do a defrag and scan your computer for virus and spyware.

A:harddisk crashed

When you say 'everything' what did you try?
Did you try updating the drivers?
Did you make sure the volume is full from the speaker icon in the taskbar?
Did you make sure no sounds are muted when you click on mixer?
Are you using external speakers/headphones?

Hello everyone! Just got a little question.

I'm trying to upgrade my harddrive I currently have 4G and i just purchased a new 15G HD. I used the program HDCOPY to migrate my data and OS to the new HD. Then i noticed that my new HD also copied the size of the old one and i believe that i formatted it first and i believe it was 15GB before i copied the old HD.

What do i need to do? Do i have to use another program? Do you know any? or there's just one thing that I need to do to get my original size back?

Thanks
 

A:Copy Harddisk

Hi NavigatorX
I have never used hd copy but from this site it looks like there are two different modes of copying. One uses a sector by sector exact disk image (which is what you have done.) The other mode does a logical file copy and leaves the partition table alone. I think this is their

site.http://212.223.28.218/default.htm

I use a program called file copy which I run from windows. I think it came from ontract with an IBM drive. You may also want to consider using a program like partition magic. This will get your partition restored back to it's original size and keep the data as is.

I'm trying to figure out how I can interpret this:

\Device\HarddiskVolume7\$mft

for Windows 2000 server
 

A:harddisk volume

That's the Master File Table - with an NTFS volume, it's what tells the system where on the hard drive each file is located.

If that file gets corrupted, you will get file system errors.

It can be repaired by running a CHKDSK on your drive (alternatively with the /R parameter, to repair bad sectors, or at least move any recoverable data from a bad sector to a new location.)

what is best thing to do wen a laptop DAT is suppose to boot asks of harddisk password....and d harddisk is Toshiba mk3265gsx

A:harddisk security

Hi,
Have you set any passwords in BIOS?
Please make sure that you have turned off the 'Hard disk password' option is turned off in BIOS of the laptop.
To reach the settings,
Tap F2 or Del or Esc key to enter the BIOS (The exact key will be displayed while the first screen is shown after your press the power button on laptop.)
Navigate to 'Boot' tab.
Check if there is an option related to 'HDD Password' or 'Ask password on boot'.
In case of 'HDD Password'
Select if and press enter
Choose 'Modify' if available or turn off/Disable.
Enter the current password if asked
Press 'Enter' if asked for new password. (TWICE)

In case of 'Ask password on boot'
Select it and press 'Enter' key.
Select 'Disable'.

If none of above works, Navigate to 'Exit' tab of BIOS (Last tab or option, usually)
Select 'Load defaults' or 'Load default and restart'
Please let me know the exact BIOS name provided by the interface for exact assistance. The name will be similar to APTIO, AMI for Dell, Phoneix etc, mentioned either at top or at bottom center.
