You can remove by going to the device manager. this is located by right cliking on the my computer icon on the start menu. then, slide down to properties then, click. once you click on properties, you will see the system properties window. click on the hardware tab. then click on device manager. you can pick out the extra drive here and remove it from your system.

In my desktop computer the LG CD/DVD writer/reader is showing empty though the CD is filled with data..hat could be the reason, i tried by re-installing the drivers but no success...


Not knowing the operating system, In windows 7 and 8 sometimes it forgets the cd format. Then you need to go to the device manager and remove the drive and let windows re-detect it.

My computer keeps showing blue screens, and my software is corrupted. How can I restore my files without the WINDOWS XP CD?


The Windows XP installation CD includes an option to repair an existing Windows XP installation. Using this option allows you to reinstall Windows without losing the files, personal data and programs you already have on the system. To take advantage of it, just place the CD into your CD or DVD drive on your PC and reboot the computer. During the installation you will be prompted if you wish to use the recovery console to repair a Windows installation. The recovery console is rather limited in its use, so just press the Enter key to proceed with the installation as you would normally.

blank.gif Press F8 to continue past the Licensing Agreement.

blank.gif The next screen should display a prompt asking you if you wish to repair an existing installation. Select your Windows installation (most likely it is the only one) and press R.

blank.gif This will begin the repair and reinstallation of Windows. The installation will copy files to the hard drive, reboot the system, and then proceed just like a normal installation. Follow the prompts just as you normally would any normal Windows installation.
When the installation completes, you should still be able to access all of your documents and installed programs.

Cant get on.keeps saying operating system not found.ihave windows xp.can you tell me what to do and why its doing that?Thanks


Do you have the original start up disc? If so use it. If not there is generally a button to use at start up that will get you to a screen where you can restore your computer to a previous date. The button is usually F10 or F11 or one of the f keys. Also make sure that you don't have a disk in one of the drives. Take everything out and try starting it up. Good luck.

Acer T-180 hangs at "Verifying DMI Data"


The cause of this problems is a corrupt boot files, Settings for hard disk drive are not correct,Floppy diskette or CD in computer causing issue, Boot devices not set properly, BIOS corrupt or misc. hard disk jumper setting not set properly, Connections loose or disconnected, Bad Hard disk drive or other bad hardware.

Note: Try this first. Check the cable setting of your hard disk in the BIOS. try swithching it to IDE, SATA, RAID. save your seetings and restart your computer.

if problem still exist... Follow this steps..

Step 1: If you have a USB stick with capacity of 4Gb and up or another hard disk... try installing a fresh Operating System in the USB stick or in the extra hard disk that you have.. after you install.. boot to bios and set the Primary boot in the extra hard disk or Removable Device (USB) save your settings and restart.. your computer will start normally booting the windows in your newly installed extra hard disk or USB stick. when you are in the Desktop, now try accessing your old hard disk and copy your files.. after you backup your files to the new installed hard disk. go to step 2.

Step 2: Turn off your computer... uninstalled the newly installed hard disk or USB.. after you uninstalled the hardware.. turn on your computer and reinstall your Operating System again. if the problem still exist go to step 3.

Step 3: if the problem stil exist. i think ther is something wrong with your hard disk.. try installing the OS again in second partitioned of your hard disk.. create first partition, then second partition. then installed your OS in second partition... if the problem still exist and you cannot go to windows desktop.. maybe your hard disk drive is damaged...

Hope I Can Help

System error


That is an operating system error or glitch. You will need to run a repair with the recovery or operating system disc. At start up, press F12 to go to the boot menu, and with the disc in the drive, boot from the CD drive. Then follow the directions. You're going to want to do the repair from the second repair section, after it finds existing operating systems, not the first repair using the recovery console. If the repair doesn't take, then using the same process, you need to delete the existing operating system, reformat the hard drive and install a new operating system. If the hard drive won't format, or if you have any issues during or after the install, then the hard drive has failed and will need replaced.
