What does BOOTMGR missing mean?


What version of windows do you have? Vista or 7 & you could run the startup repair from a Windows CD.

You might also boot into your windows repair console & at a command prompt type "Bootrec /RebuildBcd"

Attempting a system restore might also be an options.

If none of the above work then I'm afraid you may need to try & backup what information you can by slaving the drive in another system & reloading your operating systems.

Any windows cd that is the same version of your operating system will work as long as you have the CD key on the side of your computer.

Another hard drive with a compatible working system would help!!! Even if your hard drive has gone bad, you mite be able to make copies of files you want to keep from a second computer.System mechanic from iolo products has a trial, (30,days),that will give you the option to make a boot disk that has a drive medic program that might help you.I think on that same program you have the option for (1),complete wipe ...NOTE I AM JUST A LEARNER ,YOU WOULD DO WELL TO LISTEN TO THOSE MORE IN TUNE ...THANK YOU AND GOOD LUCK.

Cdwr code 41


Hi there,


To resolve this issue, edit the Windows registry to identify the CD-R drive or CD-RW drive as a recordable drive. To do this, follow these steps.

WARNING: If you use Registry Editor incorrectly, you may cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that you can solve problems that result from using Registry Editor incorrectly. Use Registry Editor at your own risk.

1. Click Start, and then click Run.
2. In the Open box, type regedit, and then click OK.
3. Expand the following registry subkey:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\CD Burning\Drives
4. On the File menu, click Export.
5. In the File name box, type backup of drives key, and then click Save.

NOTE: You can restore this registry subkey by double-clicking the backup of drives key.reg file that you saved.
6. In the left pane of the Registry Editor window, click the Volume{GUID} folder under Drives, where GUID is a 32-character hexadecimal globally unique identifier.

NOTE: If you have more than one CD-ROM drive in the computer, an additional Volume{GUID} folder is listed for each drive.

7. In the right pane of the Registry Editor window, double-click Drive Type.
8. In the Value data box, type 1 or 2, depending on the drive type, and then click OK.

The drive type should be 1 if it is a CD-R and 2 if it is a CD-RW.
9. Quit Registry Editor.
10. Click Start, and then click My Computer.
11. Under Devices with Removable Storage, right-click the CD-R drive or CD-RW drive, and then
click Properties on the shortcut menu that appears.
12. If the Recording tab is displayed, the drive is successfully recognized by Windows as a recordable
device.
13. Click Cancel.

NOTE: If you have more than one CD-ROM drive, DVD-ROM drive, or CD-RW drive in the computer and the Recording tab is not displayed, an incorrect drive may have been configured as "recordable" in the Windows registry. To troubleshoot this issue, follow these steps:
1. Follow steps 1 through 9 to edit the Drive Type value of the Volume{GUID} folder whose
value you previously changed.
2. In the Value data box, type 3, and then click OK.

The drive type value of 3 indicates that the drive is a standard CD-ROM and is not writable.
3. In the left pane of the Registry Editor window, click the next Volume{GUID} folder.
4. Follow steps 7 through 8 to change the Value data entry to 1 or 2, depending on the drive type.
5. Quit Registry Editor, and then follow steps 10 through 12 to confirm that the Recording tab is
displayed in the properties dialog box of the CD-R drive or CD-RW drive.

You may also receive an error Code 39 message that indicates that the driver is corrupted.
• Device Manager displays the following error Code 19 message, which means that the registry returned some unknown result:
Your registry might be corrupted. (Code 19)
• You may also receive the following error message:

RESOLUTION
WARNING: If you use Registry Editor incorrectly, you may cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that you can solve problems that result from using Registry Editor incorrectly. Use Registry Editor at your own risk.

To resolve this behaviour, follow these steps:
1. Start Registry Editor (Regedt32.exe).
2. Locate the UpperFilters value under the following key in the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
3. On the Edit menu, click Delete, and then click OK.
4. Locate the LowerFilters value under the same key in the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
5. On the Edit menu, click Delete, and then click OK.
6. Quit Registry Editor. NOTE: After you remove the Upperfilters value and the Lowerfilters value, if you notice lost functionality in a particular program, such as CD recording software, you may need to reinstall that software. If the problem recurs, consult with the software vendor for assistance.
7. Restart your computer.
STATUS
This is a known issue that can occur when you remove Easy CD Creator version 5.01 or earlier or DirectCD version 3.01c or earlier. This issue may also occur with Easy CD Creator version 5.01 and with DirectCD 3.01d or later.

MORE INFORMATION
There may be other third-party CD-writing software products that exhibit similar behaviour. Some or all of the troubleshooting steps in this article might apply if such a product also adds entries under the UpperFilters or LowerFilters value in the registry, either by adding its own filter drivers or by removing the registry keys and values outlined in this article that begin with:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

Dvd cd room disfunction


Hello Suzanne,

You may be required to go into the registry to fix this issue, so if you are not too comfortable going into the registry, you might want to get help (but I have written the instructions you can follow)

Check the Device Manager.

Start > Control Panel > Double Click the System icon > Click the Hardware Tab at the top of the box that opens > Click the Device Manager Button.

Click the [+] sign beside the category DVD/CD-ROM Drives

After clicking the [+] sign and the DVD/CD-ROMS Devices category opens up, is there a DVD Drive listed? If there is, when you right-click the DVD Drive and choose properties, does it give any error code, like Error code 39 in the grey box that appears when you choose properties?

Normally the DVD drives use the default Windows drivers. Try right clicking the DVD Drive under the DVD/CD-ROM Drives category in Device Manager and choose uninstall. Then reboot the computer and Windows will find the device and re-install drivers automatically.

If you are still getting the error or the Drives do not show up in My Computer ("poste de travail"), it may be an update or some other program that added data to the DVD's driver data in the registry. Try this:

1) Close all open programs

2) Click on Start, Run, and type "regedit" (without the quotations) and press Enter. Back up (File > Export) the registry before you make any changes)

3) Click on the plus signs [+] next to the following folders


  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
  • SYSTEM
  • CurrentControlSet
  • Control
  • Class
  • Left Click and Highlight: {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} **Make sure you choose this exact key**
4) This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand side panel:


  • UpperFilters
  • LowerFilters
  • UpperFilters.bak
  • LowerFilters.bak
5) If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed on the right hand side, right-click on them and choose Delete

6) After deleting the keys, close the Registry Editor


7) Reboot your computer


8) Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.


This should fix the problem, let me know if it worked for you,

Ahh the price of buying a pc with software installed. I think it should be outlawed. You were obviously charged for the operating system when you bought it so where is your CD?
So always make a start up disk and back up ok......
You could try calling the manufacturer of your system. If you don't get the answer you need the first time call again & again. Someone is bound to feel for you. Otherwise you get to pay MicroSoft again and buy another operating system.
