    Hard drive problems

    In the Boot Menu, I do not see your HDD. Likely becuase your BIOS doesnt see it. Do you see it on the SATA page? You need to get everything seen by the BIOS at the same time before you can install Windows. You shouldnt need any driver for a basic install of W7. ..... Unless you have it set in RAID mode.

    Hard drive problems

    Can you list the make and model of all your parts in your machine or if it is a store bought computer just the make and model will be fine. Please try to post the pictures here or use a picture sharing site to link them to here so everyone that is reading this post can see.

    Hard drive problems

    OK so we have established that your HDD and CD/DVD drive are both SATA drives. You double checked the connection to the HDD and it now shows up in the BIOS correct? I would double check the connections to the CD/DVD drive as well or try a different SATA port on the motherboard.

    Hard drive problems

    Not the Hard drive but the CD/DVD drive. Is it a SATA or IDE?

    Hard drive problems

    Well if you do not see it in the BIOS then you cannot boot off of it. Either it isnt plugged in totally or it is dead. Is it a SATA or IDE optical drive?

    Hard drive problems

    Are you trying to install from a Windows USB install or a CD/DVD? I ask because your BIOS does not see an optical drive.

  9. Take note that not all cases have the motherboard cut out on the back so if yours doesn't have that then you'll have to remove the motherboard.

    Overheating CPU...what fan should i get?

    First you want to know the form factor of your processor, because that determines the size of your heatsink. I would also suggest active heatsinks, as a rotating fan is smaller than passive heatsinks with the same effect, plus it probably out performs. But I think you might be overlooking something, and that is thermal paste. I would go ahead and buy another heatsink, but make sure you have some thermal paste lying around. If you have to buy some more, it is worth it. When you apply it, only put a tiny amount on the processor, as the heatsink applying pressure on the processor will spread the paste. With added side fans, a new layer of thermal paste and a new heatsink, I am unsure what else can be done to lower the temperature of your CPU other than replacing the CPU itself. Hope this helps.

    Graphic software

    Hi, Try to use the AUDIT command, which you can find right next to the RECOVER command on the File menu. AutoCAD tries to correct any errors. If it useless try this application - https://www.openfiletool.com/cdropen.html Good luck

    Lenovo l440, no brightness in the lcd monitor

    It could be the LED ribbon or the LED screen itself. If this was an LCD screen, you could have the inverter in play but everything is built into an LED screen. You would have to visually inspect the cable to see what shape it is in. Does it output fine to an external monitor?

  13. Wireshark is pretty standard when it comes to packet sniffing. Why dont you just use router logs or look on the devices History tab to see what they are looking at? You could install a Net Nanny type application on whatever device they are using.

    Thumb drives stopped working.

    Try booting Linux and see if you can see anything on there. Odds are they both crapped out at the same time. What make and model are they? Sorry it took us a bit to get back to you.
