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/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I tried swapping in a known-good mouse and this failed to resolve the problem. I entered BIOS setup and ensured that both the touchpad and PS2 mouse were configured to work. I uninstalled the mouse drivers and rebooted so Windows2000 would detect and install the mouse. After Windows had installed the Mouse it functioned fine however when logged out and then back in the mouse failed to work again. I flashed the BIOS on the laptop with the latest version (downloaded from HPs Omnibook support site). I installed Windows 2000 SP2. I then removed the mouse drivers again and rebooted. As of this time the issue remains unresolved. The PS2 mouse will not function. The laptop is otherwise funtional, however, and the user can navigate using the touchpad, keyboard, and pointing stick. Incidentally....Event viewer shows no errors....

Any thoughts on how to fix this?
 

A:Omnibook 6000 PS2 Mouse nonfunctional

Are you using a Synaptec's (sp?) Touchpad (which my lappy has)? If so, you should be able to go into control panel - mouse, and there should be some settings (over and above the default windows mouse settings if you have the synaptec drivers) to have the ps2 mouse enabled as well as the touchpad. You may also want to check out device manager and ensure that there's no conflicts between user input devices.

If you aren't using a Synaptec touchpad.. then ugh.. you may need to contact your laptop manufacturer for assistance.

I just got this laptop yesterday and it was working fine. The specs are HP Omnibook 6000/P3 800 MHZ/128 RAM/20 GIG/8X DVD. Today the laptop works fine in the morning, but in the afternoon it starts freezing a lot. Then it keeps getting worse and worse. It froze when it was loading windows 2000. The worse is right now when I turn it on but nothing shows up on the screen. I think its the hard drive so I took out the hard drive and turned it on. With and without the hard drive, the laptop still turned on and nothing shows up on the screen so I think that the hard drive died or something. Also, when I took out the hard drive, I hear a loose piece inside when I shake the hard drive. I Don't know what exactly the problem is, so please tell me if its a software or hardware problem. Please tell me what I should do.

I have put the HDD in another laptop and installed XP on to it. When I return the HDD to the Omnibook I get the message NTLDR is Missing.

If is plugs in fine I would venture there is a ID jumper required/removed for that bay. Check the install details from Crucial on the configuration options. I should detect it otherwise. I cannot think of anything else that would prevent the bios from seeing it.

Hi
Windows XP, probably Home version, would not boot into either safe or normal modes. Used live media to check condition of the hdd and also removed a couple of Trojans again using a live bootable anti virus disk.

Since then opted to use the Recovery console and attempted to "fixboot c:" but oops now cant even use the recovery console. The issue is "c:\windows\system32\config\system" file corruption. Maybe it is simply a question of copying files to ****.old or .bak and recreating them but from which location?

Because the recovery console will now not work I removed the hdd and loaded it into an external caddy and can now see its BOOT BACKUP & RECOVERY partitions with all of the directories; although the backup partition is pretty much blank , and the recovery partition has stuff but nothing obvious to attempt

The question is what to do I do to try to make this hard drive bootable again

Any suggestions gratefully received. TIA

Hi

I'm helping out a friend to try and recover data from her crashed computer. i have a USB / IDE caddy, have removed the hard drive and plugged in - having removed the jumper from the back panel as advised (in fact I've also tried it plugged into the slave part).

I connect up, the blue light comes on on the caddy - I have seen drive letter H assigned to it in disk management but can not see the drive assigned within my computer so cannot access the drive. So it's as if the drive is seen *somewhere* on the pc but not in a way that I can access it or download the data from.

As I have already done this for my own pc (connected a hard drive and downloaded all data) I know that I CAN do it but not on this hard drive for some reason.

I've even downloaded tweak ui in case a drive letter wasn't able to be seen but that doesn't help either.

When I connect the hard drive the whole pc slows down as well - so it is seen somewhere by this pc.

Any thoughts much appreciated!

I have removed the blanking piece from the dvd drive bay and replaced it with a caddy. In the caddy is a 120GB SSD. The SSD works perfectly when the OS is Windows 10 and I can use it for data. At this stage I do not want to swap drives.

However, I am a Linux user.

When booting into Linux the drive is never seen. The boot order is the same as is in Win10, HDD, USB, DVD. At every boot I get the message:

'special device sdb1 does not exist.'

If I then boot into Win10 and then boot back into Linux, the SSD is found, can be partitioned and mounted correctly. If I then shut down and boot back into Linux, the SSD has gone! Why should it need win10 to allow Linux to find it?

The BIOS is the latest and the SSD firmware is the latest.

It appears that Linux does not detect the drive on its own. I have tried every suggestion I can find in Linux forums to no avail and was wondering if another Toshiba user had managed to get a drive, not necessarily an SSD, working in a caddy.

My external hard drive went bad. I would like to replace it in its caddy, which I like. But I notice when I took the HD out of the caddy, that there are no actual connections. There is a metal area on the side of the hard drive which I presume is a contact. I don't recall seeing this "contact" on other hard drives.
Do all hard drives have such a contact? How do I know if the HD I buy will operate when I install it in the caddy?
Many thanks for advice or links.

I would do a search for large dealers and start calling 800 numbers. most of them probably have resources to check with or can at least point you in the right direction.

Hi there,
Hoping you can help! My laptop (ASUS nj61) died. I bought the nexstar 3 superspeed USB 3.0 caddy. Was able to remove laptop hard drive and insert into caddy.
My new laptop reads this as RECOVERY (D. If I double click on this, I get an HP recovery partition warning. I can't seem to access anything from there.
I was hoping to recover photos; music and other files from my old hard drive.
Can you offer any advice (for a computer dummy ) ?
Thanks for your help....

Hello Everyone !   I just bought an Omen 15-ax000 notebook.  It has an M.2 SSD for its primary drive, and I'd like to add a secondary SATA drive. However, the notebook didn't come with the necessary caddy / cable / bracket kit to mount a drive in the open bay.   Where can I get one? I am living in Australia, I didn`t find it on Ebay. I was wondering if HP has official spare parts stores that I can go to and buy these items. Thanks in advance for any help. Cheers, Harrisson Almeida.

Does the Acer Aspire E5-574g have the sata connection for a 2nd hdd via a optical drive caddy? The e5-574g does not come with an optical drive installed. If it is possible, will a 9.5mm drive caddy work in this computer?

I've started a digital film course and need to shift my saved footage between my Mac in school and PC at home. I have a couple of old hard drives sitting around so I'm thinking a caddy might be the right idea.
What do I need to look for in the specifications etc? Any reliable brands?

Thanks in advance.

I purchased this laptop with an M.2 drive.  I wish to add a Smasung 850 Pro (1 TB) drive to the laptop.  I have opened the laptop and noted that since I did not purchae it with a "normal" drive, there is no caddy or cable in the hard drive area.  Where can I obtain the correct caddy and cables needed to attach an SSD? Thank you,

HelloI upgraded my laptop with SSD disk (Samsung 850 250 GB) and I wanted to join origin HDD (500 GB /5400) via HDD caddy adapter instead of DVD. When I plug the adapter the laptop does not work (only the opening inscription "Lenovo" is started). When I interchange disks (SSD in adapter) everything is OK. BIOS is upgraded.Thank you for every advice.

I have HP Probook 6570b notebook. I bought this machine without optical disc drive. So It has jus a plastic box on the optical disc drive's place. Nowdays i bought a HDD Caddy, but I can't fix it to the notebook with twists and i have not faceplate (or bezel) that it would be aesthetical. My question, how can i purchase order faceplate or (if simplier) optical disc drive with accessory?
