I have a HP Pavilion 8622 PC with the hard disk size of 10 GB and Windows XP operating system. The entire hard disk was present as a single drive C: on my machine.
Later i upgraded my system by buying a new hard disk of size 40 GB and partitioned it into 4 drives of 10 GB each and thus i had 5 drives, 4 of them (C, E, F, G ) for my new hard disk and 1 drive (D for my old hard disk. Everything was working fine without any problem.
But for the last couple of days, i am unable to see/view my old hard disk (drive D . the Drive letters have got modified and my combo-drive shows up as drive D. the new hard disk with the 4 partitions is intact.
Recently i upgraded my CRT monitor with a new LCD monitor and i was not present when my hardware vendor changed the monitor. the problem that i had mentioned above is occuring right from the day my monitor was changed. I am not sure if this is the cause of my problem.

Please let me know why my old hard disk is not visible.

Thanks in advance.

In my form, i have two elements: a textbox and an select box

In the current implementation, the user can only type a value in the textbox or select a value from the dropdown.

Now i want to modify this implementation in such a way that instead of having a textbox and a select box, i want to have a single editable dropdown with the values aa,bb and cc and the user can enter some value in the dropdown itself?? How can this be done??

Thanks in advance.

I want to do a validation of my checkbox so that the only valid values that are allowed are
a to z, A to Z, aa to zz and AA to ZZ.

i am using the following code to acheive this:

But it is displaying the alert message even if i enter a valid value like 'aa'?

Can u tell me where i am going wrong?? I want to know if my reference string is given properly?

Thanks in advance.
The following is the code i am using to validate the entries into a textbox:

In the above code, if any value other that 0 to 9 is entered, alert is thrown.

Now i want this code to be modified such that only 1 or 2 digit number should be valid ie if i enter 111 or 2345, it should throw the alert message.

How can i acheive this??

Thanks in advance
I have jdk1.3 installed on my machine.

When i executed a JDBC program on my machine, the errors i got were:
(1) "import java.sql.*" cannot be resolved
(2) "import javax.sql.DataSource" cannot be resolved.
On googling, i found the reason for this and then i downloaded the JDBC 2.0 Optional Package for jdk1.3 from Sun's website and installed it on my machine in the folder path: C:\jdk1.3\jre\lib\ext
and also added it to my classpath variable.

But when i run my JDBC program, it is still giving me the error
"import javax.sql.DataSource" cannot be resolved.

how can this be resolved?

Thanks in advance.
I have a HP Pavilion PC with Windows XP OS (667 Mhz, 192 MB RAM, 40 GB Hard disk)

Whenever i boot my system, it always displays the message: "Your disk has to be scanned for errors. Please press any key within 20 seconds to stop disk scanning"
If i allow the disk scanning, it scans my systems, but immediately throws up the an error message in blue background which is something like:"PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA. Error in SMBios.sys etc etc
Please restart the system to continue" and i have to restart my machine.

But when i stop automatic disk checking by pressing any key, my system boots up normally.
It hangs only when i allow the automatic disk checking for errors.
What might be the reason for this?

thanks in advance.

I need a small clarification regarding the usage of firewall.

I have recently taken a new broadband internet connection. While configuring my machine, the computer technician enabled the Win XP firewall but did not install any anti-virus software.

He told me that since firewall is enabled, there is no need for any anti-virus software on my PC. he advised me not to install any anti-virus software.
I want to know if he is right??

If yes, then how can i check if the contents of a CD or email attachments or files copied from a floppy, CD etc are free of viruses without using an anti-virus software??

Thanks in advance.

I have a HP Pavilion PC with Intel P III, 667 Mhz, 10 GB HDD, 64 MB RAM, Internal modem with Windows 98SE OS.
My sound card was Aureal Vortex (Au 8810)

A month back, i upgraded my PC to Windows XP, 40 GB HDD and 128 MB RAM and have taken a new broadband connection.

Now my sound is not working. When i checked my sound card details in 'Device Manager' it shows as UniModem Half duplex Audio" and Aztech SoftK56 PCI Modem is shown as my audio device. i do not know why my sound device is listed as 'Aztech' when it was originally 'Aureal Vortex'.

For a couple of days, i was able to get sound but after that again it got lost and i am unable to hear any sound now. Occassionally while booting, a resouce conflict error is thrown.

Also, when i click on 'Volume Control', it shows me the message "There are no mixer devices avaialble. To install mixer devices, use Add/Remove programs options from the Control Panel".

When i try to play any music file, i get some message, "There may be no sound card on your machine or your sound card driver may have been corrupted"

i tried searching the net but most solutions given on the net have not worked. i updated the drivers too but in vain.

How should i proceed now??

Hi Sameer,
Thanks for the reply.
It is not a corrupted file. Because in that account, i am unable to open any file in any of the formats like doc, ppt, txt, jpg, gif etc.
I am not talking of a single file. Whatever attachment i get, i am unable to 'view' it.

I have an email account with
In this account, whenever i receive any attachments and click on 'View Attachment' option, i am getting an error message, "The file cannot be opened". But when i save it, i am able to open and view the document.
When i open a different sify email account on the same machine, i am able to view the attachments.
I checked the same mail account (the one where i was unable to view attachments) on another machine and here the 'View Attachment' option works perfectly
What might be the reason for why i am unable to view the attachments in my machine?

Dunno how it got solved (as i had not done anything) but happily it is working fine now

I have a HP-PAVILION PC with 657 MHZ Intel III Processor, 192 MB DDRRAM, 40GB Hard Disk, Windows XP OS.

Intially when i bought my PC 4 years back, it had 10 GB HDD with Win98SE OS and it had Aureal (Au8810) sound card. The upgrade was done last year and i was not present when the upgradation was done.

From yesterday my sound is not working at all . even the system sounds are not working and i am getting the error message: There may be no sound card or sound card drivers may not be working".

When i veiwed my system info, i found the audio device listed as "Unimodem half-duplex audio" which i read in a site is not a proper sound device.

Now what should be done?? How to check if my audio device has changed and how can i reinstall my previous sound device??
or is it ok to continue using Unimodem half-duplex audio as my audio device and try reinstalling its drivers??

Thanks in advance.
