Toshiba T135 - Windows 7 Won't Detect SD Card
I can't get my computer to recognize my Micro SD adapter, which I have tried on other computer and worked properly, so I suppose the real trouble is my laptop. When I insert it, nothing happens at all, and just once I've pulled it out, a message pops saying it can't recognize the device (and this only happens sometimes). I have a Toshiba Satellite T135-SP2909R and my OS is Win 7 (not upgraded from Vista, it's always had it), I have already downloaded the driver from the Toshiba webpage and from other sites, but it won't work either. When I run it, it says Realtek Card Reader 6.1.7100.30101 (perhaps it's the wrong one?). Also, someone told me it could be the bios, but I really don't know what that means.

Install Windpws XP On An Optical-less Acer Aspire One Netbook?
I just bought captioned lappy off ebay without OS. I want to install Win XP. It has no dvd drive and I don't have an external drive. I have Win XP pro on a cd, and 7 ultimate on a dvd and as well as it's image in my toshiba laptop. I actually intend to follow the instructions to dual boot but my question is how do i install the first OS on a netbook with no optical drive? Also I don't know if it has a restore from partition, I will check when I get home tonight, but I don't think so.
Acer Aspire One ZG5
Intel Atom N270 1.6GHz
1 GB ram (I have an extra 1 gig stick I will add)

Acer S3 Ultrabook Restore Went Wrong?
I have an Acer S3 Ultrabook that I have had for over a year now. i backed it up as soon as I got it using the Acer Backup Manager to an external usb drive its a 1tb drive that I keep multiple computer backups on. Now I usually use Acronis to back up my systems because it is simple to use.Anyway, Thursday of last week I found i was unable to boot windows and the startup repair wasnt working either, which was followed by a blue screen. no problem I thought. I plugged in the external drive to the usb port, then attatched the usb dvdrw, inserted the acronis recovery disc then went through the process of recovering my hd. once the pc rebooted I realized my mistake. I had used the wrong image to recover my disc. I also remembered too late that I had indeed used Acer back up manager and NOT acronis to back up the acer hd originally.
I now had a glitchy windows 7 OS working but no Acer Back up manager to recover the files. Also the OS I had on my Acer now, wasnt working and kept crashing. by now it was 2am and I was very tired but I wanted to get this sorted. So in desperation I took a windows 7 home premium disc and decided to install a fresh copy of windows.Things went from bad to worse, I somehow managed to format the wrong drive wiping the ssd that I believe holds the start up files, again once i realized it was too late. so I went ahead and installed the fresh copy of windows on my C drive successfully. At 4am I finally had a working ultrabook again, although the files that should have been on the ssd drive were now all together on the cdrive.
1. What files or programs should be on the SSD?
2. If I found someone who had a back up image of both drives would they work on my PC?
3. Does anyone have a backup image of both the SSD and HD for the Acer Aspire S3 951?
4. Does using the SSD make any real difference?

Replacing Ultrabook Hard Drive / How To Get Windows On New Drive
I'm planning on buying an Asus Zenbook UX32VD soon and it comes with a standard 7200 rpm drive instead of an SSD. So because of that i want to upgrade it to an SSD drive.But I also want to have the same windows thats installed moved over to the new drive. The drives i've looked at all have data migration tools and one comes with norton ghost but i've never had to do something like this before where i didn't have an optical drive and a windows disk for a reinstall so i'm looking for some help here before i order everything and then do something stupid.i don't mind if i have to lose whatever settings and data i might have setup already, but i just want to make sure i have the same windows and the additions it comes with moved over to the new SSD drive.

Win 7 Installation Could Not Detect Any Hdd
I currently have a computer running Vista 32bit Ultimate and purchased the Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrade.
When I used both the 64bit or the 32bit DVD to boot, I would get stuck at the STARTING WINDOWS screen for around 30min. After I will then be able to get to the install windows screen. Since I want to Upgrade from 32bit to 64bit, my option is only the CUSTOME/Clean install.
HOWEVER, when it ask me where I want to install the windows to, windows 7 installation could not detect any hdd. I am guessing this is why the STARTING WINDOWS screen took 30min load, as it was looking for a hdd.
In the same screen, it does have an option to load a driver.
So, I went to Asus to d/l the vista 64bit sata driver and also tryed the WD sata driver for the Raptor hdd.
The WD driver would not even show up on the floppy, and the Asus did.
Loaded the Asus sata driver, and still no hdd detected.
The computer is currently running with this HDD in Vista32bit and is seen on the bios. This is the only hdd in this computer, I really don't want to waste money to buy a slower hdd for my computer as the Raptor is 10k rpm.]
Note: I do not care about any data or problem in this hdd, I just formated teh hdd and did a clean
P.S. Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor tested and all hardware are ok.
MB: Asus Striker Extreme
Hdd: WD Raptors 150gb

Windows 7 Cannot Detect Hdd
I have just recently decided to upgrade all my pc's at home to Windows 7 Home Premium. I have purchased a Windows Home 7 Premium Family pack that allows 3 installations on the one license. I have tried installing it on my pc running a legal copy of Windows XP Media Centre Edition and it cannot detect my hdd.The PC itself is an Acer Aspire E500. I believe the motherboard running it is an ECS RC410-Mr (V1.0), has a Seagate Barracuda 250gb Sata Hdd and everything else is pretty much standard.So here's what is happening. I have put the installation disk into the DVd-rom and booted up my pc. It loads all of the default files etc and goes into the standard process to select the install location.It doesn't detect a hdd. So I figure at this point that i must have to load drivers for any on-board sata raid or something. Weird thing is i don't remember it having this option. I have looked into the bios to find if there is any low level Raid settings and there is no mention of it.I have gone onto the ECS website to find drivers for such a thing and they do exist. I have put them onto a thumb drive and re-ran the installation. It detects the driver, I click load and it says it is not compatible. I have tried multiple sources of this driver and none of them work.
I have heard stories about having to do a bios update but I worry about this on 2 levels 1) the pc works fine and I dont want to risk killing it, 2) the bios updates dont say anything about a fix for Windows 7 or the raid controller.Am I going about this the right way or is there something I have overlooked?
