Download the FIXIT tool (icon in middle of page) and run it. Then reboot your computer and Windows will re-detect and install any CD/DVD drive in your system.
If this does not fix it the drive probably needs to be replaced.
After i try to find the registry (which is not available)<br />Why not give this a try:<br />1) Start your computer after SHUTDOWN<br />2) After your DESKTOP appear on the screen for about 10 <br /> second, QUICKLY INSERT ANY CD/DVD (in my case I <br /> insert Glee)<br />3) Let the computer run for a while, don't do anything until it <br /> settle down<br />4) Check at MY COMPUTER whether your cd is detected<br /><br />I got mine work this way!<br />Good Luck my friends!<br />
Maybe "Autorun" feature is turned off. (1) You can download a free program called "TweakUI" (powertoys) from Microsoft which would allow you to turn on "Autorun" if it is currently disabled. (2) You could try manually running the disc by opening "My Computer", double-clicking the CD/DVD drive (usually "D") to open its browser, then double-clicking on the file(s) you wish to launch from the CD/DVD.
i,m assuming this is A laptop Computer ?
The only thing you can try is this:-
go to My Computer/Control Panel/ System/Device Manager.
see if there are any yellow triangles or exclamation marks by your problem device. if so click un-install. then at the top of that page, there is a refresh icon or similar. which will rescan the systems bus.
failing this try add new hardware wizard, in control panel.
finally ensure the device is connected correctly, unlock/remove and re-insert. update any device drivers for this.
So first off, you have a problem with your registry. This is a problem seeing as you are not an administrator and the only way to fix the registry is to be an admin. So if and/or when you are and administrator simply download the RegCure registry repair tool. also get a SpyWare scan as well and update
all your system drivers. That should do the trick or just any old program off the internet that cleans out your registry really. If you want to edit the registry manually just hit start>run and type in regedit and mess with it there. unless you know what you're doing i wouldn't recommend messing with the registry though.
