by Abhishek Bhatnagar on September 1, 2009


This is part 15 of the Ask Trouble Fixers series, we have picked up five questions from the emails we have received from our readers.


Trouble 1 : Cannot delete file: Access denied. Make sure that the disk is not full or write protected and that the file is not currently in use. – Srinivas



There are two reasons for which this error comes. The reason and Solutions are listed below:

1. File is in use : Unlock Files When Not Able To Delete A File

2. File Access Right Problem: Take Ownership Of a File When “Access is Denied” Error Shows Up


Trouble 2 :

My monitor display out of frequency what can i do? – Sumit


Monitor out of Frequency problem is quite common and easily fixable. See our article on : Monitor Goes Out Of Frequency, Does Not Display Anything


Trouble 3 :

I am using a lenovo 3000N100 series laptop and am facing problems with driver installations. The  drivers i have downloaded from the lenovo website fails to resolve my problem. please help me with this. – Srinivas


If you are not able to find compatible drivers correctly on the Lenovo website, there might be some hardware changes to the model you purchase. I would suggest you to read the following article: Know Detailed Hardware Configuration Of Your Computer. After you have the detailed configuration at the device level, for example you know that you have a broadcom Ethernet card,now you can search for the broadcom driver for that particular card and so on. Its bit hectic to do it this way, but it will solve your problem.


Alternatively I would suggest you to try this tool : Find Device Drivers For Free


 Trouble 4 :

My desktop icons,fonts and also the screens look too large and horrible. – Divya


Looks like the display resolution of your screen is messed up. Try to change the display resolution or change the icon size. These are some helpful article for you to fix your problem:

1. Display Resolution Degraded / Decreased

2. Windows Vista Icons Too Small or Too Large

3. Flickering Graphics Problem In Windows


Trouble 5 :

My pen-drive is detected in my computer but could not open. I found it has memory 0 bytes in the properties.I had tried by changing the option in POLICIES tab in Device manager but cannot solve this problem and also i cannot format it. It is detected and displays please insert Disk into drive. – Ganesh


Looks like there is a memory corruption or some hardware fault in your drive. However you may try the below solution which may or may not solve your problem, but its worth a try. If that does not fix it, you must replace it under warranty (if applicable).

1. Please Insert Disk Into Drive

2. Not Able To Format Pen Drive

3. Solutions to Top 10 USB Drive Problems
