    Hi Everyone,


    I hope someone can help me out with this problem.


    I encased my old laptop hd because there were significant problems. I connected the now external hd to my new laptop and changed the permissions on all folders and subfolders to "Everyone". However, I cannot see many of the folders and subfolders, (Documents, for example) via explorer.


    Using the command prompt, I made a text file of all folders on the drive, and I can see the missing folders there. However, when I try to view the folders via the command prompt using dir, many of the folders that are in the text file do not appear via command prompt. "Volume in drive E has no label." When I try to change the directory via cd to a folder I know should be there, "The system cannot find the path specified".


    Do you have any suggestions on how to access the folders?


    Thank you.

    H

    :)

    What to do with old laptop

    Yeah this is good suggestions here with your old laptop but i just want to say you that you should replace your old laptop with any new laptop by exchanging the old one and i think this is the best opinion for you ....

    External monitor "no input"; worked with old laptop and intermittently with new laptop

    For nearly one year I've been using an external monitor to extend my display. Over the year my set up has stopped working three times and I get the message on the external monitor "no input" when I plug in the cable to my laptop.

    I have worked with Dell's IT support on this issue each time to resolve the issue but I would like to figure out how to stop this from happening and/or resolve it on my own when it does happen. Dell IT support eventually fixed the problem after trying many
    solutions and it was too convoluted for me to follow, so I cannot recreate what was successfully done to actually solve the issue. And I don't understand why it is reoccurring. I had zero problems with this external monitor with my old laptop.

    Here's a summary:

    - laptop always makes the chime sound when the cable to the external monitor is connected and disconnected; "no input" flashes on the screen of the external monitor

    - sometimes I can get the external monitor to connect again if I hibernate my laptop and then wake it up; sometimes I need to shut my laptop down completely and restart to get the monitor to connect again; putting the laptop to sleep and then waking it up
    never resolves the problem

    - I turned sleep off entirely because usually if my laptop went to sleep then the external monitor would no longer connect upon waking

    - I turned off the laptop screen time out (i.e. laptop goes to screen saver or just turns off) because the external monitor would no longer connect afterwards

    - In Settings, Display, I have tried the "Detect" button to try to connect to my external display; it doesn't work and I don't think it has ever worked

    - I updated BIOS a few times and it did not help; I eventually had to roll back to a BIOS that was four versions older in order for the monitor to connect again

    - I updated video card drivers (and a few others that I don't remember because it was months ago), and this did not seem to help

    - My setup has been working for the last three or four months until yesterday and now I can't get the monitor to connect no matter what; the only update/change I could see that happened was an update of the "Definition Update for Windows Defender Antivirus",
    but perhaps there were other updates that happened that I don't know how to check for

    - I've had three blue screen failures in the two months, and I think one or two others in the last year; stop code: unexpected store exception

    I hope I've given enough detail here. Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
