  • 1. Can you "ghost" a laptop hard drive.
    In my desktop PC I have a spare Hard drive that I connect up (internally) and boot from a floppy and ghost my main hard drive. This way if I ever have any problems I just install the backup drive as master drive and boot from that. It has to be the easiest back up solution around. I now have a new laptop and was wondering the easiest way to do the same thing with this. As the laptop doesn't have a floppy I don't know how you could boot from a ghost boot disk (can you boot from a CD with GHOST) Also you cant exactly upon up the case on a laptop and connect up another drive so any suggestions on backup media

  • 3. DLL errors, can anyone explain and give me a solution?
    I was recently running System Mechanic 5 on my Fujitsu Amilo laptop and i think i inadvertently deleted some system files (why the software lets me do this i have no idea), and I am now receiving this error "An exception occurred while trying to run FLDCLNR.dll, WIZARD_RunDLL". This happens every time i re-boot but while i am accessing different folders in Windows Explorer my screen continually freezes and i have to physically switch off the maching. Can anyone explain what is happening and what on earth I can do to stop this occurring? Thanks to anyone who can stop me going eventually mad with a fix for this!
  • 4. Backup/Restore of Outlook Files
    I think I need to re-load Windows XP on my laptop, can anyone tell me what and how to backup/restore my Outlook files, or tell me where I can find this information? Thanks
  • 5. Virus protection program recommendation (Norton slows my machine)
    I have a laptop with 500meg RAM and a 1.3 Pentium processor. I just replaced my hard drive with a 100gig 5400rpm Seagate and a fresh install of Windows XP and my applications. Once I installed norton antivirus 2005, I noticed a huge drop in performance. My computer seems to crawl in comparison. I have read similar complains about NAV 2005. It seems as if NAV2005 just takes over your system. Can anyone recommend an alternative anti-virus program that is less resource intensive.

I really forgot it.  (I didn't use it for a long time because of some errors
with tbe screen.)
I've searched the internet and tried the parallel loopback.
Checked the connections over and over but somehow it doesn't work.
I would like to give the notebook to my daughter!
Does somebody have a suggestion.

thanks in advance,


4.Toshiba Tecra 8100 battery problem

I have a Toshiba Tecra 8100. The model is from 2000. 
After about two and a half years of use, the battery stopped from
functioning correctly.

Here's what happens: 
The battery is 100% charged (or at least it says so). After a half an
hour (only 25-30% was used) it suddenly drops at 1-2%. After another 2
minutes it stops from functioning as it is empty. In order to
re-charge it, I have to wait, as usual, several hours.

So, my battery functions well between 70% and 100%. Below 70% it is
almost completely empty (it lasts for 2 minutes + it needs several
hours of charging to arrive at 100%). Above 70%, everything functions
normally (lasts proportionally with the rest of 100-70=30% + charges
in a time that is proportional with the discharge).

Is there any remedy to this problem? Can I make the battery function
correctly again or it needs to be changed?

Do other Toshiba models use the same type of battery (is the Tecra
8100 battery compatible with other Toshiba models) or I have to search
for exactly the Tecra 8100 battery?
