Question about Computers & Internet
Hi, recently i inserted a dvd (got some scratches on it) into my dvd rom. 1st, my laptop can read it but when i tried to copy files on the dvd to my hdd, the dvd rom took a very long time to do so and it seemed like my laptop was not responding to anything. So, i opened the dvd rom and took out the dvd, and of course my laptop started to respond like usual. The problem is, my system slows down and this remains even after restart. Movie or audio did not play smoothly, kind of lag.. this happens a few times and the only solution i found is to reformat or restore the system back. I'm thinking that either ram or processor is overload because the indication LED won't stop blinking. It's a problem for me to reformat/restore every time this happens. Hope fixya can help me find another solutions without having to reformat or restore my system. Thanks a lot !!
Your DVD has virus/spyware/malware or other nasty program on it. Be sure that before you used some kind of things, scan with anti virus first. Also you may have a lot of system clutter on your system, you said that you try to copy, and i guess you've been force to abort it??Then the data that you been supposed to copy have become sytem clutter in your sytem.
Clean up your system clutter, remove junk files, clean of registry and defrag your hard drive.
Try the Sytem Mechanic Professional it works for me perfectly..

I suppose you could try to stop apps starting up with your system, sounds like you may have too much junk running with your system. It could also be that you have some malware on this DVD that's causing you problems.

Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders
This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.
If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete
After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer
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.
