My daughter's laptop crashed recently, also running Vista, also some sort of corrupted configuration. I was able to start it in "safe mode" and back up her files. I'm trying talk her into upgrading to Windows 7.

At home my Vista works fine, but at work it gives me the blue screen of death at least three times a week. Even the smart guy techs can't figure it out. Starting to think about up grading soon.

I'm baaaaaaack.

Well here's a turn up for the books...the HDD is good, not a thing wrong with it...the tech picked the problem incorrectly. The problem was in fact the MSI Motherboard. This is the motherboard they put in to replace the one that failed in 2009. 12 months out of a motherboard...not real good in my books. I now have a Gigabyte MB fitted, so I'm hoping that everything is good now.

Only other problem I have to try and sort out is my Western Digital Black Book. I bought it a s a back up drive for my HDD, and wouldn't ya know it...the damn thing has stopped working.

Cheers, Vince

Vince if you disconnected the drive without dismounting it first it can lose its letter and not be accessible. There is a way to re-assign a drive letter to it but the danger is that you can lose what you have on it.

Same thing happened on our drive but we were lucky and didn't lose the data. Now we just shut the computer down before we disconnect it.

The internal drive is ok Paul...seems the problem lay with the motherboard.

Now, sorting out the WD external drive might be different...apparently they have other problems.

Yep...well aware of it Chambered...but the grandkids don't always take note of it. Also, after having read up a bit on the net about these particular drives, there are a couple of issues they suffer that cause an inability to read.

My son-in-law has a few mates who are 110% geek...one of them may be able to offer a fix, when I can get around to seeing one of them.

Cheers, Vince

I reckon the little icon pic at the end of the line pretty much describes his idea mate.

I am well aware of the safely remove - and the message that follows too - "drive is in use- it cannot be removed at this time" That is when (after you are sure that everything has been saved) you shut the computer down and then unplug the darn thing. When you go through shut down it resets to no longer in use until you turn it back on. The Geek at the computer store told me to do that when we got the still in use message.
Windoze doesn't care that you haven't done anything with the drive for an hour and all the programs that you can see on your desktop are closed - it just knows that it was in use and is stll connected.

THANK YOU BILL GATES!
