"Mycomputer" not functioning

Good morning Sir.
On clicking MYCOMPUTER the harddisk drives-C,D,E,F and FDD, CD drive and Pendrive are shown. On rightclicking any of the drives C,D,E,F of Hard disk--click Explore or Open -- the drives don't open to show files or folders. However the other drives namely - FDD, CD, Pendrive are opening.

I am now acessing the files and folders of C,D,E & F drives through "My documents".

Please suggest solution or system cleaning tool. I have already cleaned the drives by Symantec Antivirus.

Thank you.

I have stupidly removed the cd drive from my advent 9315 while cleaning out unwanted programs. How do I restore it?

Hi Sir/Mam.
You can try to restore it by:
Here are the steps
Right click mycomputer
Click properties
Click Hardware
Click Device manager
(Directly click Device Manger for Windows 7)
Then Right Click on the list of items in the device manager and click Scan for hardware changes.

If you can still see the Disk Drive. It might just be disabled.
Go the the Disk Drive List then right click your disk drive then enable it.

Hope this works

Windows ce core 5.0 and we just bought new netbook called delstar and i try to get new windows but it wont work ! how it work with it without cd drivers! i puzzled this computer is limited!

if it has a USB port then u may use a pendrive and change the boot seq in BIOS to boot from USB drive
in the pendrive u must have all the WinXP OS install files...
use another PC having USB slot and a CD drive,
first make a pen drive bootable by formating it and copying the system files....(check what's the drive letter in which the pendrive is shown on will be listed as "Removable Disk")
Note the drive letter say D: or E: or G: etc
then go to
Start / Run type
u will get a new black window
in the black window type
again type
u will go to c:\>
here type
cd windows
it will take u to
here type
cd system32
so now it will look like this
here type
format e: /s or G: /s or E: /s based on the drive letter that u noted earlier
use another PC to just copy all files form a WinXp install CD to that formated pen drive and use that to boot your above PC that does nto have CD rom drive to install the Win OS

My usb stick is not working. the computer sees it but its not accessible and i windows cannot format it.

Does it appear as a drive letter? If not, try to go to Computer Management (in XP right click on MyComputer and choose Manage, on other versions you have to find it yourself), open Disk Management, find a disk without a drive letter, with a capacity that matches your pendrive, and assign a drive letter to it, one that's not used. A good idea is to use letters towards the end of the alphabet. Once you do it, the pendrive should appear on the list of drives in My Computer.

External hard disk not being detected by computer

Now it is clear that your system is of good configuration and the fault was occurred due to removing of power supply directly. Do one thing check the same drive on another pc with good configuration. If same thing will happen, then you can visit your nearest service centre but remember it should be in warranty period.

Thanks and regards,

Rightclick MyComputer then go to "Manage" and go to "Disk Management". If you see the Pendrive, rightclick the pendrive then assign a "Drive Letter". You should now see the pendrive in Mycomputer.
