Have you tried your usb items on another machine to make sure they are ok. Just to confirm have they been working ok and when did they stop working? jacquesbl January 28, 2011 11:53:47 AM Let me tell you my complete story... I was partitioning my laptop, and all of a sudden a black screen. I forgot to plug in my power. After that drama, for some reason I couldn't install win 7. So I installed XP, then Vista (And did an update there.) Finally I could install 7! But... My USB's didn't work!!! beanoslim January 28, 2011 1:28:15 PM I would download the appropriate hdd software and hard format the drive, write zero's. Then re install windows 7. jacquesbl February 2, 2011 2:03:56 PM Thank you so much! I will try it, and reply to you. beanoslim February 2, 2011 2:14:40 PM Do you know your drive make and model? jacquesbl February 2, 2011 6:02:11 PM And what exactly do u mean by "HDD software" and is a hard format like overwriing the hd with blank data? jacquesbl February 2, 2011 6:03:20 PM I don't know what my make + model is.
