My Toshiba Model L505-S5993 laptop won't read


Hello there,

The problem is that the Drives lens is already bad and cannot read any disc, no matter the type of disc you put into it, it wont read it still. The solution is to replace the drive. Replacing it is the best way to solve the problem. If not trying to replace the lens is going to be futile as the lens for the driver is not available and when you install a new disc drive, it will have to install the drivers software.

If you replace the lens, the laptop wont be able to install the drivers of the lens as it reads it alongside the driver itself and if they are not compatible, it wont install the drivers software. So my best advice is for you to replace the CD drive.

My laptop is a typical example because my disc drive is also bad. And i had to replace the drive and not the lens.

Hope this was helpful to you.
Goodluck

  • Open Control Panel
  • Choose Classic View
  • Double click on System
  • Click on Hardware tab
  • Click on Device Manager
  • Open the Sound, Video and Game Controllers by clicking on it
  • Right click on your sound card, choose Uninstall
  • Now go to the Actions menu and choose Scan for new hardware
  • Windows will scan through your computer, discover the audio adapter and reinstall its drivers
In Vista/7:
  • From Start menu
  • Choose Control Panel
  • Choose Classic View or Large Icons in 7
  • Double click on Device Manager
  • Open the Sound, Video and Game Controllers by clicking on it
  • Right click on your sound card, choose Uninstall
  • Now go to the Actions menu and choose Scan for new hardware
  • Windows will scan through your computer, discover the audio adapter and reinstall its drivers
If these don't resolve your problem, you need to download a new audio driver from your manufacturer's website.

I have nfs carbon in my pc. ihave a psp to. ihave to convert this carbon into that. what is the solution?


Do you want to play the carbon on your pc on or PSP ?

You can run older DOS-based PC Games such as Doom, Quake or Duke Nukem 3D on your PlayStation Portable (PSP) if you have the right software. Finding, downloading and installing the software is not too difficult. Once you have the proper configuration on your PSP, all you have to do is save the games on your PSP's memory stick and boot up the correct programs.

  • 1

    Download the free program DosBox for PSP (see Resources). Save it to your PSP's memory stick under the "GAMES" directory. To do this, insert the memory stick in your PC's memory stick slot, or connect your PSP to your PC via the mini-USB cable provided by the manufacturer. Using Windows Explorer, open the memory stick or PSP and then navigate to the "GAMES" directory.

  • 2

    Install the PC games you want to play on your PSP's memory stick. When the PC game install wizard asks where you want to install the game, direct it to the "GAMES" directory on your memory stick. It should then create a new folder within "GAMES," where all of the PC game's files will be located.

  • 3

    Insert your memory stick into the PSP or disconnect the PSP from your PC. Start the PSP, and go to "MEMORY STICK" on the main menu. Scroll down until you find DosBox listed and start the program.

  • 4

    Type "cd/games" using the PSP's virtual keyboard option at the DOS prompt. (Hit the circle button to bring up the virtual keyboard.) Then type "cd/" followed by the name of the game directory for the game you want to play. Finally, type the name of the executable file (".exe") listed in that directory. Your PC game should start.

  • 5

    Troubleshoot your individual PC game by experimenting with the various game controls. Since the PSP obviously has fewer inputs than a PC's mouse and keyboard, you may have to use trial and error to discover how to play your game successfully on the PSP.

    I have no sound on my computer, no volume app at bottom right of tool bar, and i can hit the volume button but it doesn;t seem to do anything, whenever i try to play a song with winamp 5 a pop-up appears...


    Ok go into the control panelsystem properties and open the "Device Manager" then go to "Sound Video & Game controllers" section and highlight your sound card by clicking on it once and then hit "delete" on your keyboard or "right click" on it and choose “Uninstall” from the drop down menu and when it ask if your sure you want to remove this device ? choose “Yes” and when the uninstall is complete then reboot your computer and the sound card should reinstall itself

    If it fails the install due to not being able to find the install files then you will need to either tell it where the files are located or if you do not know then you will need to go to the Dell website and download the driver and install it .. But either way you will need to uninstall and reinstall the driver to get it to work again..

    Put your Windows disc in the disc drive.
    Tap F12 when the computer is starting up.
    Select load from disc.
    Install Windows.
    It seems to be the only solution to your problem.
    Hopefully, you made a partition and saved your files onto there, or onto an external hard drive to prevent data loss.

    Screen won`t display games.


    1. Re install Direct X new version on your laptop
    2. reduce or lower down the resolution settings of your screen. On desktop right click select properties and under the settings tab reduce your resolution to a lower setting like 600*800 and click on Ok an OK again and retry playing your game
    3. If it fails try restoring your computer to a previous date when you were still able to play the games. Start > all programs > accessories > systems tools > systems restore and click on the new window restore to and selct aday you remember you played the game well and resore to it.
