MessageHi there,

How would I go about getting a diagnostic test done?  Can I do it myself or 
would you recommend I take it to a computer shop.  I really do not want to do 
the latter since they will charge me an arm and a leg for doing really nothing.

Thanks,

c

  If the power cord was only plugged in part way, and I realize we don't know 
if this is the reason, but if so, then you could have some other problems as 
well.  I would probably suggest having someone do a diagnostic test to see if 
all aspects of the computer are working.  If they are, then we have another 
problem, but I think, if it were my computer, that is what I would need to know.

    Not really sure how the hard drive fried.  I was installing a second drive 
and the only thing I can guess is that the power lead was not pushed in all the 
way.  the drive refused to power up and smelled like burnt electronic 
equipment.  

    It is an OEM version of media center which I used to install again.  Not 
sure if the settings are the same as before but I would assume so.

    thanks,

    C

      How exactly was your hard drive fried.  I mean, what actually happened?  
The other question is, was media center already installed on your computer when 
you got it and were there backup disks provided to reinstall.  If so, I assume 
you used them.  Have you checked the settings in your video display to see if 
they were the same as they were originally?

        Hi all,
        I have a weird problem here I could use some help with.
        I am running Jaws 7 with media center 2005 and everything was working 
fine and then I some how fried my hard drive.  I replaced the hard drive and 
reinstalled
        media Center and Jaws.  Now Jaws will stop reading desktop icons, 
folders and files, and items in list boxes and such.  Jaws will also not read 
lines in
        WordPad when I arrow up and down.  If I close Jaws and restart it it 
will then work again.  I can not figure out what is causing this because 
sometimes
        it will work great for hours and then sometimes it will stop after a 
few minutes.
        All my settings under display and folder options are set to Jaws 
friendly settings and tech support at Jaws said they had no idea.  I also 
updated my video
        card driver to the latest version.
        The only thing I can think of is that my video card was also damaged 
when the hard drive fried.  Any help or suggestions would be great.
        Thanks,
        C
