cannot see contents of external HD

Question: cannot see contents of external HD

have been using my 250GB external HD for awhile now. I unfortunately shut the PC down without 1st clicking "Safely Remove Hardware", and now I cannot see any of my files on the external HD. It's about half full.

I can see the drive (F in explorer, but it shows as ZERO free space and ZERO used space when I select its properties. I can also request a CHKDSK on it, but it doesnt run.

I did get a couple of error messages on boot-up, but didnt write down what they were. I think they were F$ errors, but I could only click OK through them.

I've run a CHKDSK on the C: drive, tried un-plugging and re-plugging things in, tried a different USB port on the PC, with no luck.

Any help in getting my files to display again is GREATLY appreciated.

Hello, I've run into a very distressing problem. Can anyone please help?
SYNOPSIS OF PROBLEM:

1 - After contracting some sort of malware that I have removed with Malwarebytes, I have lost access to the contents of two external USB hard drives, each of them being 1 Terabyte in size and one of them is partitioned into several smaller drives.

2 - The drives show up in windows explorer, but they say "this folder is empty".

3 - Each drive still shows up as part-way full when you right click and go to properties, but none of the files accounting for that space show in windows explorer.

4 - It's not particular to this machine, I unplugged them and tried them on my other computer. Same thing: the HDs show as partially full in properties, but none of the files show in explorer.

5 - I have not tested or done anything to either drive since loosing contents except plug them into another computer. I have not tried defragging or anything just in case someone here tells me that was the wrong thing to do.

If you would like details on how this situation arose, they are below. Just in case that would help anyone figure this out. If anyone does, I will buy them a beer. Thanks.

I have purchased a new 2TB external HDD. I want to backup my old one (also 2TB) by copying everything to the new one. It's about 1.6TB.

I assume a Copy/Paste transfer would not work (I always seem to encounter one error or another, when I try to Copy more than 40 or 50GB at a time). And I'd rather not babysit it for hours, copying chunk by chunk.

They're both NTFS by default, if that's important.

When you say copy, do you mean the copy in the picture ?

I have a similar issue... my laptop (running XP) got into a bluescreen/reboot death cycle.

So, I bought a new Vista laptop, and an enclosure for the old PC's drive.

When I attach the drive to the new laptop, it's light goes on, I hear the disk spin up inside, and a few moments later, it appears as my "F:" drive.

But, when I click on the drive, it looks as though it's empty. Nothing there, no file folders or files, nothing.

Is there something I may be doing wrong?

Thanks!
 

Answer:Contents of External Drive Not Showing

Hi, I have a USB3 1TB WD Elements external hard drive which has stopped responding.
I was using it with the laptop sorting out files I'd backed up ready to put back onto my laptop after a 'return to factory settings'. It worked no problem.

Then I attached it to my TV to watch some stored films from it. At first the logo's showed and it tried to play some then just became unresponsive and was not even recognised as being attached to the TV. The light came on the hard drive as if it was working. We are travelling in a motorhome, and during this time the 12 volt power consumption acted as if a film was playing. There was ample power available.

When I attached it back onto my laptop it made the usual noise indicating that a USB device had been attached and the lights came on the hard drive, but it does not show up in Windows Explorer.
The first few times I got the green usb logo bottom right task bar, and it showed there as being attached when I click to remove a device. Now it does not seem to get the green usb logo even.

It makes the usual sounds when attached and detached.

I have tried 2 different laptops with same results.

I know there were some files on the hard drive when I got it. One was for a software trial and a couple of others. If I have deleted these accidentally, could that have caused the problem?

All my back up stuff is on there, so please can anyone help?

Thanks, Jan

Hope this helps

I have installed a Samsung SH-D162 external DVD drive on my HP Touchsmart IQ524, Windows 7, via USB and here is the issue:

It shows in Device Manager, in my computer as drive G under Devices with Removable Storage. I am unable to read anything on a disc. If I right click on the G drive it will run for hours. I have hooked it up to my neighbor?s computer, XP, USB and it works fine. I have removed the upper and lower filters in regedit and re-installed the driver. This has sucked enough out of my life. Can anyone provide an answer?

Answer:Windows 7 won’t read contents of external DVD drive

Some external drives do not draw enough power from the motherboard to make them work without one of those USB cables you plug into two USBs on your computer and the other side into your drive. It may be this.

Has the same drive worked on this computer with another operating system installed. If not this may be it. You can get these cables at most electronics stores.

If the drive HAS worked on the computer with another operating system.....it will be something else.

Please try other USB ports if you have not tried that already.

I just switched from Windows XP to Windows 7, I backed up all my files to an external HDD and now I've transferred them all back, but I've noticed the folder they were in says it's read only... or rather, it's not ticked, it has a blue square on read only.

According to Security I have access to everything... is this a problem or not? Should I go to folder properties and make read only unchecked just to make sure all my files will be usable and modifyable?

Answer:Just switched to Windows 7, contents of External Drive are read only?

Hello Xirix,

A blue filled check box is just the default neutral setting that is always displayed. File is not read-only. For a folder, it means all files in the folder not to be set as read-only.

The System Volume Information folder is taking up about 18% of one of my 2 external hard drives. (I can't remember if I have actively programmed anything to be stored in that file.) In any event, is it safe to delete some of all of the files in that SVI folder?

Thanks much!

Answer:Is it Safe to Delete Contents of System Volume Info in External Drive

Basically the system volume folder is restore points. I wouldn't really recommened deleting it. It does a lot to keep your links in order. Also is you delete it you probable wouldn't be able to open some applications on it. You can turn off system restore under system settings in control panel. But this will stop restore for you computer also.

I am not a 100% on how I managed this but here were my last steps:
- changed the host file in c\windows\system32\drivers\etc
- rebooted computer
- received system errors, so I ran a HDD defragmenter
- I then tried to access a file in c\program files but could not find it, but it mysteriously felt like I was in the c\windows directory. So I looked in c\windows and found the file I was previously looking for in c\program files.

The other problem is that any file or program that is rooted in those folders gives me an error message reading "location is unavailable" whenever I try to access it.

Needless to say, My computer is JACKED and I would appreciate and help on this.

If this is at all confusing just ask and i will try to explain it better

Thanks

Hi;

Presumably, an ERD for W2K (pro) is supposed to fit on a floppy and consists principally of three main files; autoexec.nt, config.nt, & setup.log plus registry if you choose to include it (system state). However, when I go to create the the disk,there seems to be a lot more data being downloaded than just these files, and it sure will eclipse the capacity of a floppy. When you go to the erd set-up and asked what is to be selected,
should I be choosing something besides "C" drive and system state?
Many thanks in advance for any assistance-

Okay, I have four cd's from the Baldur's Gate Shadows of Amn game. I've let my brother borrow the game and have yet to collect it and I kinda want to play it now. So I had him copy the contents of each disk, zip it up and send me the four designated zip files. I unzipped all the files, put them in 4 designated folders renamed after each cd 1-4.

I open folder "CD 1" and start up the setup, it begins the install and asks me to put in disc 2. So I browse the prompt over to "CD 2" and it immediately asks me to insert disk 3. At this point it just continues to ask me for the next cd and it never installs.

I wonder if I'm doing something wrong, I've managed to install software like this however it's become a problem. Anyone have any idea what I can do to fix this problem? Any help would be appreciated, I just want to play the game already, hah. Thanks in advanced.

Sounds like a multisession Cd that was recorded with different Cd writing software for example part nero part easy cd.or it could be that the pc's have different drivers active.You might find it Easier to reproduce the CD part on your system and your 'lost' files on your son's system making sure you use the same CD writing software and version

It could also happen if you have inserted a blank disc.

how do i view the entire contents of the iso so i can finish creating a bootable hdd to use as my installation media?
 

Answer:contents missing from iso

Hi bloodskin, im afraid i wont help you with the pirated download of OSX (which is likely to be infected).

However, you may be able to repair the disk...

It is quite a laborious task but some 2000 grit sandpaper will remove the scratches and then you need some buffing cloth to shine it....

Make sure you only rub in small circles!!!

Might take you an hour if your lucky.

NOTE: do not use anything other than 2000 grit or you risk ruining the disc completely!

I have an older IBM ThinkCentre with Windows XP and on-disk recovery software that resets the disk to a factory structure as follows:

unallocated 1.00 MB
hda1 ntfs 33.69 GB Used: 9.11 GB; Free: 24.58 GB Boot
hda2 ntfs 3.57 GB Used: 3.26 GB; Free: 314.37 MB
unallocated 1.22 MB

hda1 is clearly the C drive as seen in Windows.

Questions
1) What's in the the 1 MB unallocated section at the start of the drive?

2) Where is the recovery software in there? I'm told the hda2 partition contains only "tools" although its not clear what kind.

3) Why can't Windows see hda2? The drive after C is the DVD drive.

4) Is the last 1.22 MB section empty? - just left over? or would it have something in it?
 

Answer:Help: Disk contents

The recovery Partition should be hda 2 It may or may not be visible in windows explorer as many companies hide the recovery partition. If it is visible under windows it would show up a D: drive most likely

Although The medical textbook CD is copied and installed in my laptop, I have to insert CD everytime I want to read it.

Hi
On XP
I've managed to delete Docs and setting\username\local setting\temp internet file\Contents.ie5 but when I run Adaware it finds and takes a couple of hours or more to run through ...\Contents.ie5 even though it's supposed to be empty. Is there more than one Contents.ie5? (Can't identify previous directories as there ain't enough room in Adaware to display them)
Cheers
Monty
 

Answer:Solved: Contents.ie5

There are quite a few actually. Try the free Index.dat Suite. It will allow you to delete the index.dat files, temporary internet files, temp files, cookies and history and also view, the index.dat files on your system.

I have a Windows Xp SP3 on a laptop (Intel dual core 1.8Ghz 4gb Ram). Everything was ok until I plugged in a usb from a friend who was having problems with his newly formatted Xp and now I cant see the contents of USB drivers plugged in my laptop or the other partitions on my hard disk!It shows that the used and free amounts haven't been changed and via recent items I have been able to access files on D, E but I cant access them directly from my computer. I did a virus scan with Avast, it deleted two adware and several files were "unable to be scanned"!. The problem still persists. Any idea what should be done to deal with this problem? I dont want to format the other disks as I dont have a copy of the files etc.
Thanks a lot

Hi all, hope this is in the right forum.

As the title says, can you copy folders, and paste them to another drive without the contents? Maybe with a hotkey, or some other way?

Reason I ask - I have 20 folders in a directory on my D drive. They are all full of a lot of content (100s of GB). I want those 20 folders all with the same names in a directory on my F drive. I am trying to avoid a) r-clicking and creating New Folder 20x, and then r-clicking and then renaming 20x, and trying to avoid b) copying all the folders with the contents, waiting for the c/p to finish, and then having to go into each folder to delete the contents.

Any way to feasibly manage this? Thanks!

Answer:Any way to c&p folders without the contents?

You could use the xcopy command from a command prompt with the /T switch which would copy the directory structure but not the files.

Open a command prompt and navigate to the folder that contains those 20 folders then enter: xcopy *.* f:\ /T

Do any of you know of a way to see the contents of a site when the root doesn't have any information? For instance a link is posted to www.anysite.com/pic1.jpg - and that picture is posted, but going to anysite.com comes up with an under construction page. Also, going to www.anysite.com/a/a.jpb comes up with a picture, and going back to www.anysite.com/a/ gives the contents of that directory, but going to the parent goes back to the under construction page.

So, is there any way to see the contents of the site (other than guessing possible names)?

I have a PC with a SSD C:/ drive that I use for program files only.

If I click on properties for my C drive, I see that 66GB of the total 96GB is used.
That seemed high for just program files so I expanded the view and looked at each one.
Windows - 22.3GB

Hi,
I have a folder, and few files in it, two .rar and few .txt files, a few days back they were working fine, but yesterday when I try to open the .txt files were empty, and my .rar file is also get error, when I open with hexedit, their contents were all 00000 (zero’s), but the file size remains the same. It has my personal data. I am very confused, same thing happened a couple of years ago too. I have latest antivirus and spyware and there is no unknown process running, anybody could please help me? Why this happened?
 

Answer:file contents get zero.

I can't think of any reason why the contents of the files would change like that while their sizes remained the same. Have you looked at the date accessed, date modified, date created, etc., of the files? Perhaps you can run a chkdsk on the hard drive. Hopefully your experience from a couple of years back prompted you to back up valuable data in multiple places.

ok, I'm selling my 40Gb 2MB cache maxtor to a mate and replacing it with an 80Gb with 8Mb cache of same manufacture.

I've recently reinstalled XP so don't want to do a full install on the new disk, I just want to copy the files over to the similarly partitioned 80Gb.

40Gb was originally split into C: 5Gb (for system and windows) and D: 35GB (apps and data).
I want the 80Gb to have similar partitions for windows and apps but the extra 3rd 40Gb partition for my accumulating data.

I only need to copy C and D initially and then root out all documents and data from newD to newE right?

Some suggestions i've read of simply copying and pasting havent worked cos of files in use, even in safe mode. Most mirroring apps seem to need to work from floppy to get around this - I don't have a floppy drive...

are there any freeware windows apps for this or easy DOS steps or workarounds for "files in use"?

Answer:Recovering HD contents

Most of the contents of the drive are still there. The first thing to try is partition recovery. If a proper partition table can be written to the drive, you can then access the files that remain normally. Testdisk or Testdisk Boot Floppy Image is the best tool for that. It will not damage your files no matter what options you choose and it often requires some intelligent guessing. If it finds a partition that is close to the size it should be, write the changes to disk and then reboot. See if the drive is accessible. If not, try again. If you get nowhere with it (and that would be very unusual), then try scanning the drive with recovery software.

I am trying to open a CD to install some software for my printer. I insert the CD into the drive and it does not autorun. But that's not really the main problem (I've already gone to the registry to make sure that Autorun was activated, yes but it still doesn't work). From 'My Computer' I can see that the drive has read the CD and if I double click the drive I'm able to see all of the files on the CD. So I know that the drive itself isn't broken. I've also updated the drivers on the drive so that isn't the problem either. I tried to click the .exe program on the CD to get it to run that way and nothing happens. I can't figure it out. I've even tried a few other CD's to see if it was just this particular CD but none of them run. I can see the files on all of the CD's, I just can't get any of the .exe files to run. Can anyone tell my why this is happening?

Answer:CDs won't play but can see contents in XP.

Hi Mr.KC -Insert the CD, Right click on the CD drive, Then click on the Setup file if you see it, and then see what happens -Some times a CD will not Autorun, and needs a prompt, or a manual start to run.Do you have an item in Programs yet, if not then it has not actually loaded and installed the files fully.Thank You -

Hi All,
I recently copied a set of files associated with a vb 6.0 project, from one folder to another, on the same server.
I opened the copied project, and made a bunch of changes, for a new client. Some of the things I changed included properties on the Project --> Properties page, including the project name. When I did a make of the exe, I also changed the name of the exe.
When I was all done, I went back and looked at the original project, and found that all of the changes I made in the copy, were now in the original.
After much head banging, consternation, blame casting, and overall bad feelings I discovered that if I opened the vbp file in a text editor, I could see that the vbp contained references to the original frm file, in the original directory. The changes that I made to names of the project and the exe were in the vbp file, but the other references back to the original project still existed.
Where or how do all of the references in the vbp get maintained? I could not find any place in the menu system that allowed me access to the hardcoded paths contained in the vbp. I have manually changed these references in the vbp, using a text editor, but would like to know the 'correct' way to maintain from within the IDE.
TIA

I was sorting through some pictures and organizing them into folders about an hour ago then all of a sudden the folder just goes blank after I recieved some kind of error for one of the pictures. When i type the names of the sub folders which were inside of the folder that dissapeared into the address bar, the pictures and the folders citing there location still in the same spot appear with no problem, but when i try to search the system nothing shows up. The memory is just as much as it was before the incident, so i know for a fact the files are not gone, but when i look at details for the folder it says 0 for everything. Another thing is if i attempt to create a new folder in the empty one, when i hit refresh or leave and come back the new folder (which appears as New Folder (2) even though there isnt a 1) is gone.Can anyone tell how i would go about fixing this problem?

Answer:Folder Contents Gone!!!

When you were organizing things around did you move those files somewhere else making this folder (blank) empty?  Did you check garbage can to make sure you didnt delete the files?  Also go into start / documents/ and see if any of those files are in there and if so place your mouse over until you see the location of the file.

Answer:Need to retreive contents to a DB

Hi rev1976,

As you mean to create a web application with database accesses and buy-on-line facilities,
you will understand that your application must be highly secure and it needs an appropriate technology to avoid hackings, intrusions, etc ...
One of the best I experienced today is a Struts based Java application running on a Apache server and accessing a database server MySql.
I created this kind of application for a company one year ago and till now, they have met no problems with security and their data are safe.

To enter the application, the user triggers an Java servlet which generates and sends a HTML page to the user's browser in which he must enter his login and password.
When he 'submits' this page, another action servlet is triggered to check his identification. And so on ...

The principle of this kind of application is to have the less possible HTML pages stored on the website and the Java servlets are inaccessable to the user (of course, the webserver must have a good security configuration).

This kind of application can be done in PHP too. There are many possibilities.

First, you have to contact your website manager to know the possibilities of the server he hires you.

A little problem with Firefox, I cant read my Yahoo mail in it. I can see the mails just fine, but when I open them I cant read the text within, although I can still see the header.

FYI I have the old version of Yahoo, and until last week could read everything fine. Now I cant. I've tried disabling all the extensions / addons etc, and even uninstalled / resinstalled Firefox, I'm still having this problem.

I'm being told by others I must have a problematic extension. I went to that section but under Extensions I only see a few of them, none of which look problematic.

I have an internal website which I am trouble loading the full contents in IE 11.  The computers are domain joined and get group policy from domain. The site works fine if the computer is not part of the domain. So it is not browser. I do not know
what setting I should enable in GPO to fix this issue. The real time contents are not showing up. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi! I am using Windows XP.
The problem with my computer is that the contents of C: are not visible or accessible. I can't uncheck the 'Show hidden files and folders' option.I ran a McAfee virus scan but didn't detect anything.
Yesterday the contents of all the drives (C:,D:,E:,G were not visible. I googled a bit and came up with some solns:
1. Type the following in cmd:
del c:\autorun.* /f /s /q /a
del d:\autorun.* /f /s /q /a
del e:\autorun.* /f /s /q /a
to delete autorun.* files from theses drive. It required some further registry tweaking but didn't want to mess up the registry without further info.
2. I downloaded a zip file called FixDrive and ran the exe file. It fixed the errors in all drives except C:
Any ideas what could be causing the problem? Do I need to run HijackThis.

Hi all

I am using Excel 2007 and I have copied a table from a website into a spreadsheet. Some of the cells in the table contained a tick (or check mark) which were centred in the table, but on my spreadsheet the tick is up in the top left hand corner of the cell. I would like it centred. When I select the cell the formula bar at the top of the screen is blank, just as though the cell is empty. Trying to centre or delete the cell doesn't work, nor does trying to delete the row or column that the cell is in.

Does anyone know how I can centre the tick, or how I can delete it so that I can manually re-enter the tick?

The web page also included some navigation buttons which also copied across to my spreadsheet, and I can't delete these either.

Thanks in advance.

Robert

Hi,

My PC won't display the contents of any CD/DVD - the windows explorer window is blank. It can detect whether it's a CD or a DVD that's been inserted as the icon changes to "CD-ROM" or "DVD-ROM" as appropriate.

Here's the odd thing, Windows Media Player will play files from CDs in the drive and picks up the track info. artist, title etc. and I can rip from the drive. I can also burn to the drive and the discs play in other machines (a laptop, a CD player, a DVD player have all been tested fine).

In WMP if I choose File/Open then I still get the blank window. It's the same in other programs both Microsoft and non-Microsoft software - presumably they all use the underlying Windows explorer to access drives.

So, it looks like it's something to do with the view in Explorer but I've tried all the variations "Thumbnails", "Tiles" etc. and the window is always blank.

If I use a command prompt and try to change to the drive I get "The parameter is incorrect".

Thanks, in advance, for any suggestions.

Hi everyone,

I'm new to XSL-FO and I've been trying to create a table of contents for a book and am having no such luck. Maybe I'm not sure where to put it or maybe something in my syntax is messed up. Maybe I'm missing the whole point. The following is my code for the toc portion:

<xsl:template name="toc">
<page-sequence master-reference="contents">
<fo:block font-family="Garamond" text-align="center"
font-size="12pt">
Table of Contents
</fo:block>
<xsl:for-each select="book/text/chapter">
<fo:block font-family="Garamond" text-align="justify" font-size="10pt">
<fo:inline>
<xsl:value-of select="@name" />
<fo:leader leader-pattern="dots" />
<foage-number-citation ref-id="{generate-id()}" />
</fo:inline>
</fo:block>
</xsl:for-each>
</page-sequence>
</xsl:template>

I've been placing the "<xsl:call-template name="toc"/>" inside a template match for the title-page after a closing page-sequence tag. I'm doing this becuase this is where I want the TOC to be placed. I'm just not sure what I'm doing wrong and it seems there isn't much information online about creating a TOC using XSL-FO. I find the O'Reill... Read more

Answer:XSL-FO Table of Contents Help!

Alright I got the chapter titles to appear... but the page numbers still don't. I have footers with page numbers on each page... they're working fine. Here is my code currently:

<xsl:template match="/" mode="toc">
<fo:block font-family="Garamond" text-align="center" font-size="12pt">
Table of Contents
</fo:block>

<xsl:for-each select="book/text/chapter">
<fo:block font-family="Garamond" text-align="justify" font-size="10pt">
<fo:inline>
<xsl:value-of select="@name" />
<fo:leader leader-pattern="dots" />
<foage-number-citation ref-id="{generate-id()}" />
</fo:inline>
</fo:block>

</xsl:for-each>
<fo:block break-after="page" />
</xsl:template>

I don't think I really understand the <page-number-citation> command... I've used {generate-id()} and I've used the @id attribute which is part of my chapter tag. Bot don't produce page numbers and the O'Reilly book doesn't explain them as far as I can tell.

I have a page with an iframe named "Content" on it. I want it to displaya different page in that iframe depending on the URL of the page. For example:click herewould show page1.html in the iframe, and:click herewould show page2.html in the iframe, etc...Basically I would like to do this for unlimited different pages, so specifying a variable manually for each one in JavaScript would be no good.It would also be good if I could drop the ".html" by adding it on to the end in the JavaScript.I've tried a few different things but all have resulted in a blank iframe.Thanks in advance for any help,Gaz

Yesterday i replaced my old hard drive with a new one, and used seagate's software for copying my old contents onto the new one. i was able to boot off of the new hard drive fine, but when i open my recycle bin i cant see the contents. even when i delete something off of my new hard drive, i still can't see it in the recycle bin. but if i right click/empty recycle bin on it, then it says "are you sure you want to delete 44 items..." or something along those lines.
 

Answer:Can't see the contents of my recycle bin

If you open the Recycle Bin and go to the View menu, what is checked? Tiles? Icons? Etc?

Also look in that same menu for Choose Details and see what boxes are checked.

Hi,
I was planning on backing up some data so thought Id start with a home video DVD that has been burnt as a DVD that plays on DVD players. I copied the contents/folder to my desktop and seen that the folder is 4.2gb. I was planning on burning my data on to data DVDs as I thought you could get more on a DVD if you burned it as a data DVD. However, it seems that this will save me no space at all. Please can I ask where I am going wrong? Do I have to convert the data/video files to FLV or something? I am not too keen to do that as the quality will be lost.
Any advice would be appreciated, thank you.

Answer:DVD contents 4.2gb so how can I fit more on a Data DVD?

Ah, I see. Excellent, thank you.
I guess converting to FLV would compress even further?

is there a way or utility that would allow me to capture the current contents of my RAM in a windows o/s environment, at any given time?

D.
 

Answer:Capture RAM contents

From a command prompt type debug
in debug, type d startaddress [length]

E.G. d 14f0:1000 2000

If you don't specify length it defaults to 128
Length is entered in hex, so for 128 bytes enter 80

You can write the output to a file by specifying the file name when you start debug or by using N to name the file, set the number of bytes in BX:CX (BX is high byte) using R, then a W to write. This outputs the data in binary. If you want it in a human readable form you can write a script with the commands you want to execute and redirect the output to a file:

<debugscript.txt debug >output.txt

output.txt will include the commands as well.
For example, if debugscript.txtt contains this:

Code:
d40:0
d1000:100
u
q
will generate this for output.txt:

Code:
-d40:0

This is probably very basic but:Is copying a partition using Partition Magic the same as cloning a partition i.e can I boot from the new drive if partition copied rather than cloned?

Answer:Copying HDD contents

Can you not copy the contents from one partition to another through my computer? If you have not created a partition to copy to then do this first getting details of size etc. from the existing partition. Hope this helps.

Is there a solution, please?

First of all, knowing your systems specs would help troubleshoot your problem better, 2nd, knowing the exact error message will go a long way since, this way, we don't have to speculate.
