I have a Laptop and the floppy drive keeps on making annoying sounds. The sound won’t go off; I checked the drive if there is a floppy disk inside it but the drive is empty. I don’t know what’s causing this problem. I’ve also checked if there are any objects inside the drive but nothing was found. Please help me anyone regarding this matter.

For the past few days, I’m experiencing a problem while using Safari. After using the browser for about half an hour, I clicked add new tab, but nothing happens. When I tried to open new site in my existing tab, my Safari hangs up and eventually quits. Below is the error message after Safari quits:


Safari quit unexpectedly.

I’ve started using Google mail as my email provider. I am not pleased with it after experiencing this kind of problem. Every time I sent a message to multiple recipients my mail always treated as a Spam.

I have also tried sending it to only one recipient but also ended as Spam. What can I do about it to prevent my mail from being treated as a Spam?

Yesterday I have installed a new version of Nero but I found out that it had a conflict with some of my programs. It tried to uninstall the new Nero and install the previous version that I have been using but still the after effect of the program is still there. My last resort is to use the system restore but when I try to start the system restore an unexpected error occurred associated with 0x80040154.  See the image below.
