Engine diagnostics on your laptop 

by on July 22, 2009

Q: Is there any way to hook my laptop (either MacBook or Dell) to my truck’s computer so that I can view diagnostic information or use as a gauge, etc.? It would be a set-up similar to the one on The Fast and The Furious movie where he has his laptop hooked to his Eclipse as he street races.

A: The Nology website has software you can purchase and install on your Windows based laptop along with connectors that will enable you to run diagnostics on your vehicle. We have to note that this is only for diagnostics. It will not let you change any settings.

Windows Detected A Hard Disk Problem 

by on February 21, 2008

Q: I have a Dell Inspiron 6400 and I have a pop up that says, “windows detected a hard disk problem” what should I do?

A: Hello. The first thing to do is to backup your hard drive, including any files, folders, and programs that you would need should your machine hard drive fail.

The next step I would try, since it is a Dell is to press F12 for the Boot Menu and then run the HDD Diagnostics to see if the system catches the problem.

If you did not find anything then I would recommend trying to run the Seagate Seatools for Windows.

One of these two programs should be able to diagnose what the problem is. Once you have a diagnosis and if you need further help please contact us again. If neither of these tools was able to give you a diagnosis then also let us know what operating system you have and we can start from there.
