You can do a back up using a pen drive or external USB HD Drive first.
Then install your OS booting from and external device.

Or replace the cd drive for a new one, you will find new drives at very affordable prices on ebay

My computer crashed, how do I recover my NTI Backup Now EZ program? My computer can't find the NTI setup.exe.


Many people confuse system back-ups with system restore and/or recovery programs. They are very different. A backup makes a copy of selected (or all) files and stores them to a disc, tape, hard drive, or other device that will allow you to protect your files in the event of data loss. Say you accidentally delete an entire directory instead of a single file. Your backup would allow you to re-load that directory. System restore/recovery files are used in the cases where you either want to reload the computer back to a certain condition (factory restore), or need to completely recover your computer in the event of a crash. These types of files usually need one of two things to work. If the recover/restore software was OEM manufacturer supplied, there may be a BIOS routine that, using a hotkey on boot-up, will allow you to access the recovery/restore file. If it is an aftermarket program like your, recovery/restore files usually need to create a bootable USB or CD/DVD that can be inserted on boot-up, and then the files on that device will perform the recovery/restore. If all you have a a system backup, you may have to reinstall the operating system, drivers, and then the backup software. After that, you can use you backup file to recover your remaining programs/data.

How to recover my acer aspire desktop is hung up at services being started ?


You will need to get a factory Microsoft disc to do a format on the partition. Most likely the hard drive has a bad sector. If you use another disk to reload the operating system make sure you have your Microsoft key ready. When you finish loading it the OS knows the key doesnt match the DVD. It will prompt you to call Microsoft for authentication. As long as your key is good Microsoft will authenticate your load. This is only true for Windows Vista or later operating systems. You will get no support for XP. If you have to talk to an actual support person just tell them your hard drive went bad and you had to use another disc for your key. Which is the truth they will get you going FREE at that point.

Blue Ray not working


One of the advantages of owning an HP Pavilion includes playing your favorite DVDs conveniently at home or anywhere with your HP Pavilion laptop or notebook.
Whether you have Windows 7 or Windows Vista, your HP Pavilion may experience problems playing your DVDs.
For example, sometimes you may have a DVD movie skip while playing, which can happen frequently with a lot of DVD handling, such as with rental DVDs.
Perhaps your DVD player does not recognize the DVD and rejects it.
When you troubleshoot your HP Pavilion DVD player, you become more acquainted with your HP Pavilion, plus you can get back to movie-watching sooner.
Clean the DVD if you notice any skipping while playing or if the DVD stops.
You can clean the DVD by wiping it from the center to the edge using a lint-free cloth and filtered water.
Avoid watching DVD movies while you have a virus system scan operating on your computer system.
Reschedule the virus scan to another time or disconnect the scan temporarily and then reconnect the scan when you have finished watching your movie.

Disconnect from the Internet while watching movies.
Other programs on your HP computer can access the Internet and disrupt the movie as you watch.
Turn off your printer, scanners and other external devices connected to your HP Pavilion while you watch movies.
This allows your computer to concentrate its resources on your DVD player.
Install the latest DVD player updates from the HP Support and Drivers website for the best DVD performance.
Test the DVD Drive
Insert the DVD into the HP Pavilion DVD drive. Close any window that opens automatically.
Click "Start" and then "Computer."
Right-click on the DVD player icon and then choose "Explore."
Check to make certain you placed the DVD into a DVD drive.
If the HP Pavilion DVD drive ejects the disc or prompts you to insert a disc, it does not recognize the DVD.
You can also try inserting another DVD disc. If you do not see folders appear, such as VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TX, you may have a defective disc, or the DVD may not be compatible with your DVD drive, such as a Blu-ray disc.
Try a different DVD movie.
Insert a regular CD into the DVD drive to see whether HP can read it, after you have tried playing several DVDs.
If the drive can read the CD, it may not be the DVD drive.
Have the internal ribbon cable replaced if the drive cannot read the CD, or have the DVD drive replaced if a new cable does not help.
Reinstall DVD Software Windows 7
Click "Start," "All Programs," "Recovery Manager," and then "Recovery Manager." Click "Continue" if prompted by Windows 7. This will bring up the HP Recovery Manager window.
Click "Software Program Reinstallation" and then "Next."
This will bring up the HP Software Program Reinstallation window, which allows you to reinstall the programs that originally came with your HP Pavilion.
Click "Next" and then follow the instructions provided.
Restart your computer after the driver installation.
Select "Next" and follow the directions provided to recover and reinstall the DVD player software that came with your HP Pavilion.
Reinstall DVD Software Windows Vista
Click "Start," "All Programs," "PC Help and Tools" and then "Recovery Manager." This will bring up an HP window called Recovery Manager to help you recover HP Pavilion drivers and programs.
Click "Next" and then select "Yes" or "No" when prompted to perform a program recovery.
Select "Next" and follow the directions provided to recover and reinstall the DVD player software that came with your HP Pavilion.
HP Pavilion PC Laptop Blue Ray not working
Blu-ray disc technology continues to improve and advance, so simply having a Blu-ray player in your computer doesn't guarantee that all discs will play immediately.
The Hewlett Packard DV7 Entertainment Notebook has a Blu-ray player, but as the technology advances you have to keep the software and firmware on the system up-to-date to ensure compatibility.

Reboot your Pavilion notebook.
A minor miscommunication between the disc drive and Windows Vista or 7 may lead to a disc read error.
Rebooting clears your system's memory and forces Windows to reload all of your device drivers, which may resolve a minor kink.
Play your Blu-ray disc to see if the problem is solved.
Open QuickPlay and update it.
Double-click the "Update" button to open "Updates and Enhancements."
Double-click "Get the latest QuickPlay updates."
Select "Download now!" on the next screen and wait while the file downloads and installs.
Close and reopen QuickPlay and insert the Blu-ray disc again.

Update MediaStart regularly.
This program tracks updates for your Blu-ray player's firmware, the software coded onto the device to tell it what kinds of discs it can read.
Open MediaStart and select "Update your MediaStart." Updates are only listed when available, so if you don't see an update, check back in a few weeks.
Each update for the Blu-ray player enables you to play more recent discs, since some interactive features may not be compatible with older software.
Restart after each update.

Update your software on a disc-by-disc basis.
According to HP, some Blu-ray discs have special content protection and require new codes for you to play the movie.
These codes or disc-specific updates are stored on the disc.
If you are prompted to download a free update after inserting a disc, follow the prompts to do so. The updates will be different for each disc.

Check to make sure your player will play regular content if you continue to have issues with Blu-ray discs. It may be that the error is related to the drive, not the type of media.
Try a CD-ROM or a standard DVD to see if the disc responds.
If not, contact HP for a replacement or for drive-related troubleshooting.

Hello! My Acer Aspire 4736 Laptop is not recognizing any CD/DVD. It has TSSTcorp CDDVDW TS-L633B ATA Device driver installed but i dont know wahts the porblem


Hi,

The CD/DVD drive or optical drive is not reading any discs due to either hardware malfunction or operating system registry inputs. To correct the issue, follow the below steps.

- Reload BIOS (Basic Input Output System) default settings by pressing F10, Del.. (depends on what key is designed to access the BIOS setup)
- Use a bootable disc (like Operating system disc). Try to boot to the disc, if successful, your optical drive is surely working fine. If not, you need to reinsert it or replace it.
- If you are able to boot to disc successfully, it means that the Operating System needs to be reinstalled or upper and lower filter of the cd/dvd drive in the registry needs to be deleted.

Here are some links that you can check to resolve the issue without reinstalling the Operating System.

Hope this helps.

I need to know if i can recover the Operating System on my Sony laptop it has a OEM harddrive I lost the Operating System by Mistake can i recover the Operating System Through the BIO"S or dose it...


How did you lose the operating by mistake? Did you format the drive?
You can not recover the operating system from the bios. But you may have a choice when the computer boots up there may be a recovery option, you can try that. If not you would have to reinstall or try a repair from a vista disk if you can borrow one from someone. Please let me know if I can offer any other help, Thanks for using FixYa

My Acer Aspire Still does not work after I have tried to reformat it using the USB info downloaded from your site. What further can I do . It powers on but black screen


From the Acer support site. http://acer.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2631
If this does not help and you still cannot reload the OS, you will need professional help.
How do I reinstall the Operating System on my computer? Select models have the ability to have the Operating System reinstalled from a hidden partition built into the computer.
Note: Ensure that all important data is backed up as reloading your computer will return it to the factory default specifications, resulting in the loss of all user data.

To start the system recovery:

  1. Restart the computer.
  2. When the Acer logo appears on the screen, press the Alt and F10 keys repeatedly.
  3. If you are prompted with a Microsoft Windows boot screen, press the Enter key.
  4. After the system recovery application has loaded, follow the prompts to reinstall the Operating System.
If the ability to reinstall from the previous method is not available or fails, recovery of the Operating System will need to be from Recovery Media.
Note: If your computer does not have an internal optical disc drive, an external optical disc drive will be required in order to recover the Operating System using Acer Recovery Media.
  1. Restart the computer.
  2. When the Acer logo appears on the screen, press the F12 key repeatedly to enter the computer's Boot Menu.
  3. Press the CD-ROM drive eject button and insert the disc labeled System CD.
  4. Close the CD-ROM tray.
  5. Refer to on screen instructions to select either CDROM or USB CDROM.
  6. The computer will boot from the Acer Recovery Media
  7. When prompted for the Recovery CD, remove the System CD and insert the Recovery CD.

    Note: If there are multiple Recovery CDs, please insert the first of the Recovery CDs.

  8. After the system recovery application has loaded, follow the prompts to reinstall the Operating System.
Note: If you do not have a set of Acer Recovery Media, you may purchase the set online from the Acer Recovery Media Order Form. If your computer is unable to run the Acer Recovery process, or errors occur during recovery, please contact Acer support.
