How to Change MB Star DAS Xentry Start Picture

It’s a customer interesting setup on changing a picture of Mercedes Benz Diagnostic Tool DAS XENTRY software interface. Here is what he shared for all:

I was playing around with DAS the other day, changing things when i came across a picture of Xentry
So i decided to change it and it worked…
I think you guys can change it so that it displays your shop logo every time you start DAS or picture that you like.
It takes couple of tries but once perfected it can be used on other systems as well
When you change it, just make sure it’s confined to standards such as

Code:
File must be in location C:\Program Files\Mercedes-Benz\DAS\bin
File name must be “XentryDAS 991×620.bmp”
File must be in “bmp” format or Bitmap image (.bmp)
Width must be 991
Height must be 620

How to resolve MB star C3 hard disk drive not found

I have been received the 2017.03 MB STAR Mb Star C3 software parcel today. But I had a problem with the hard disk, when inserted into the Dell D630 it buzzes and clicks every few seconds. The heads were seeking and hitting the stop repeatedly.

Looking in the bios, no hard disk is detected.



The main reason is:
1.You don’t insert the HDD well.
2.There are something wrong with your laptop.

Solution:
Pls insert the HDD to your laptop again.
Chage another laptop and have a try.

If all solutions above don’t work, please send Star software HDD to the vendor.
