Go into my computer, control panel, device manager. find the cd rom in your list of devices uninstall the cd rom and reboot your computer. when your computer restarts it will find your cd rom first thing and reinstall it automatically. this should clear up any issues you have. if not < you may have a virus, IRQ conflict, or bad cd drive.

Suggestion: Try reconnecting drive. Disconnect power cord. Open PC and simply reattach IDE (ribbon) or SATA cable. Seen this problem with drive failures.

Hp netbook laptop annoying sound everytime i start using it,what is the cause of that annoying sound?


Probably the fan or hard drive. Keep your eyes and ears open because if either one of them fails, you've got problems.

I have 2 HP dv8000's that have multiple problems. The caps key does lock up - I saw the fix on here - but having to hit the keys repeatedly for them to go back to functioning correctly is ridiculous. My...


I had a DV9207US, so I know how you feel.

Caps lock - No other way around this then repeatedly hitting the key.
Hard drive - Hard drive does not play cd/dvds
DVD drive - On HP DV series, is super sensitive and does open quite frequently.
Keys rubbing off - No other way around this. You could replace the keyboard with one from HP Spare Parts. Quite easy to do on the DV series.
Battery life - Is horrible and HP has had several class action lawsuits because of it. I never used my laptop portably. I took the battery out and chucked it. I was as mobile as only being able to plug in my laptop let me.
Hinges - DV series have a lock on one hinge that you can choose to turn in order to lock your screen. Unfortunately, they were built poorly and cheaply and cause the hinge to go out.

If you're experiencing both hinges cracking, I'm afraid you're suffering from the other big HP malady: Overheating. HP design had serious flaws and combined with virtually non-existent heatsinks, many DV series laptops would overheat and then vent right where your screen meets the top edge of your laptop. This excessive heat causes the plastic to warp exposing the hinges as well as wreaking havoc on the bottom portion of the lcd screen.

HP is currently facing class action lawsuits for this.

If your screen is cracking (which is what mine did) you only have a little while longer before the screen completely falls off. The entire plastic portion around the screen will come out and/or the flimsy cable (which oddly enough HP put right inside the crappy hinge lock) will rip, break or tear causing the monitor to go out completely. There is, sadly no way around this (unless you're really good mechanically, there are several websites dedicated to fixing laptop hinges, google it). At this point, you could just attach it to a docking system and connect it to an old monitor and just use it that way or you could replace your screen, open up the laptop and use better heatsinks, but for that price, you could just buy another laptop, which is what I did.

Good luck.

Scanning computer to eliminate malwares, spywares and the viruses from your laptop.

2- Repairing and cleaning Windows registry.

These two tips are found to be very helpful to fix the laptop shutdown problem. Almost all the computer users surf internet which could result in viruses attacking your system. Some of these infections are really pesky and cause the machines to shutdown randomly.

The registry errors, however, are the internal errors and can become a cause of system crashes and freezes. The registry keys shall be in good health to keep a system perfect.

When I noticed my laptop keeps shutting down everytime, I tested the Intel Software Partner, RegInOut to fix the random shutdown problem with my laptop.

I have a Pavilion HP dv4 laptop with Windows Vista. It is fast with internet pages, but incredibly slow opening, saving files on the computer. It may take 5 minues to open a folder on the C drive!


First use the recovery cd ..or installation cd ..to reinstall the operation system ....cause this is a sign that it got a bug on the system ..or has some damaged files that slow it down ....
Another thing ...if it worked like this always...I sugest to downgrade to windows xp .cause you probably do not have enough Ram memory for this OS ...or upgrade the ram by inserting one more slot if it has free slots...
for vista to operate well enough in a computer you need at least 2G of ram memory ...if you have only one ....better install windows XP ...if you want to downgrade to Xp and do not have the drivers ..let me know to link you to a download location ...

CD drive opens on its own


I can propose a workaround, if it is hardware related. Burn an image from the CD and Load it in a program like Daemon Tools. You can change the letter of the virtual CD drive via My Computer > Manage > Disk Management. But if you have the problem with only this game, it is probably the game itself. Just save more frequently.
