Im trying to reformat my sAmsung laptop but i cannot find the cdrom to first boot, only the hardisk and windows boot manager will appear!.,.thnkx


You may have to go into the setup (BIOS) and check to see that the CD-ROM is enabled as a boot device. Some BIOS allow you to disable the CD-ROM as a boot device. It would not be listed in the boot manager if that were the case.

How do I install Windows 7 on my Acer Aspire 5536


The FIRST thing people need to do when proceeding to install Windows 7, is to make SURE there are compatible DRIVERS.

IF the computer manufacturer does not offer Windows 7 compatible drivers, for the computer in question, DO NOT load Windows 7.

[ Drivers are small pieces of software written, so that the Operating System can 'communicate' with a device.

Windows Vista, and Windows 7 are two examples of an O/S.
Audio (Sound), Graphics, LAN, and so on, use a chipset.
This chipset is a device.

Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_Circuit ]

Fortunately I looked, and Win7 drivers are available for the Acer Aspire 5536 Notebook PC,

http://support.acer.com/us/en/product/default.aspx?tab=1&modelId=1119

BEFORE you install Win7, click on the Drivers, and download the compatible drivers for THE device in your computer, and the matching Win7 driver.

Burn them to a CD disk. Have ready to install.

[ Acer doesn't list what each driver is, until you click on Download, at the right side of the driver file.

Let's take Audio for one example.
There are 4 Audio drivers listed.

Click on Download at the right side, of the first Audio driver listed.
In the small window that comes up, you can see it is for WinXP.
XPx86. (Windows XP 32-bit)

It is also for a RealTek audio device. (Chipset)
(All the Audio drivers are)

Click on the second Audio driver listed. (Click on Download)
This one is for Vista
The third one is for Windows 7 that is 64-bit, OR 32-bit.

(Look at the Windows 7 carton. Does it state 32-bit, or 64-bit?
Doesn't matter for the above driver, as it is for both, but other drivers may be just for 32-bit, OR 64-bit.)

Go to Device Manager, and see what each device is.
(Click on the Windows start button, click on Control Panel, click on Performance and Maintenance, then on Device Manager)

Write them down. Download, and burn to disk the proper drivers ]

NOW, with the proper drivers available, proceed to install Windows 7.

(I have been told that some Vista drivers do work for Windows 7.
Need to make sure, as once you install Windows 7, it is a bear to try to reinstall Vista, if Win7 does not work)

Windows does not like to be written over, and Vista has a security measure that is better than previous versions.

Go to BIOS Setup, and in Boot Options, make sure the first boot device is CDROM.

How?
As soon as the computer is started look down at the bottom of the screen.
You won't see the P.O.S.T. screen, but the Acer logo screen.
At the bottom of this screen, states what key to press to enter BIOS Setup.

(Power-On Self Test)

It may state something along the lines of;
enter Setup, or
enter BIOS Setup, or
Enter CMOS Setup. (Old. Doubt it)

This screen goes by f-a-s-t.
You probably won't be able to press the correct key in time, to enter BIOS Setup.
No problem.

Simply restart the computer. As soon as it restarts, start tapping on the appropriate key. (In 2 second intervals)

You may hear a beeping as you are tapping on the key. This is a Stuck Key Error Code. Ignore it.

Should be the DELete key, or F2.

When you enter BIOS Setup you CANNOT use your mouse anymore. You use the Keyboard.

The navigation guide is at the bottom of every screen in BIOS Setup.
It doesn't state navigation guide, however.

There are two major BIOS manufacturers. AMI (American Megatrends Inc), and Award/Phoenix.

There are several versions of each, so I cannot guide you directly.
However if you need help just post what you see, and I will guide you.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Regards,
joecoolvette

How do I start the webcam - does it have to be linked to a specific app, i.e. Skype, or can it be started independently? Thanks


Let me assist you in this regard.

This issue could be due to below reasons:
1. Corrupted Wireless drivers.
2. Corrupted BIOS.
3. Defective wireless adapter.

Before confirming, I request you to perform the below steps to isolate the issue.

Step 1: Update BIOS from the below softpaq:

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp38001-38500/sp38173.exe

Installation Instructions
1. Download the SoftPaq .EXE file to a directory on your hard drive.
2. Execute the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions.

Step 2: Uninstall and reinstall the wireless drivers as follows:
1. Click Start, Control Panel, Performance and Maintenance, and then System icon.
2. This opens the System properties window.
3. Select Hardware tab and click Device Manager.
4. Click "+" beside network tab.
5. Select the wlan and right click on it.
6. Click Uninstall and restart the Notebook.
Now reinstall the drivers from the below softpaq:

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp36501-37000/sp36542.exe
Installation Instructions
1. Download the SoftPaq .EXE file to a directory on your hard drive.
2. Execute the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions.
NOTE: After the files are unpacked, the Setup program runs automatically. If
the setup program (Setup.exe) needs to be run manually, look for it in the
download directory.

If the issue still persists, it could be due to defective wireless adapter. I suggest you to perform the below step to confirm the issue.
Remove and reseat wireless adapter:
To get the step by step instruction how to remove and reseat wireless adapter please go through the bellow URL:

Have gateway md7818u notebook that locked up, my son accidently used the recovery disks from our gateway desk top to recover, now when I load the actual laptop recovery disks, it acts like it's loading...


0x00000070 error means that Windows start up failed in an early stage.
If you are unable successfully boot into Windows because of the this error, Windows has an option to reload registry information from the last successful boot. To revert to the last successful boot:
  1. Reboot the computer.
  2. Near the end of the BIOS messages or graphic, but well before anything appears from Windows, press the F8 key. You may only have a few seconds to get the right spot to press F8 before it attempts to go into Windows. If the BIOS complains about a pressed key or asks you to go into BIOS setup, you've pressed F8 too soon (Don't go into BIOS setup).
  3. When successful, you should see a back screen with white text "Windows Advanced Options". Use the up or down arrow keys to highlight Last Known Good Configuration and press Enter.
  4. If this does not work you may have already reformatted the original disk partition. If that is the case you will have to re-install windows from scratch.

No tpm or tpm has problem


1.u have downloaded the BIOS but have u confirmed that u have downloaded it with resect to ur motherboard serial no and version.

2. 2nd thing i want to say u that if u have downloaded BIOS which is more of floopy size then u can take it in a pendrive also and if u dont know that BIOS updation can also be done from window also.

3. if u have no choice like updating from windows with pen drive . than carry it in cd.
and update from window .
if not & if u want to update it from BOOT prompt then write those files in cd making that cd startup disk and make changes in BIOS setup .
a. open BIOS setup and go to boot priority option and make CD as first boot device.

b. save the settings and restart the system.
then when it will BOOT from sc run the .exe file from coomand and BIOS will get updated.
restart system and enjoy.

and 1 more important thing u cannot directly run it from window for that u have to run an application which is given in the motherboard cd or download it from ur motherborad site.
