I want to rom drive skype from a CD to ram...any O.S.

To tell you the truth I can not even get skype to work with MEPIS 3.4.3 or MEPIS 7.02!!! (even if I install to a hard drive...which I do not want to use) Infact; the only O.S. I have actually made work with skype is my copy of vista ultimate!!! I am trying to get it to work with windows 2000 right now!!!
I do not have a phone now!!!! My vista got a bug despite good anti-virous
programs!!! I want a fast re-load or reboot that includes skype because my last set-up took all day and only lasted about 6 weeks...

Unfortunately i don't think you will be able to find a skype image, it usually isnt included on a restore image... the only way i can think of is to reimage your HD and download skype, but make sure you have the right version and admin privilege on the login acct on the machine.

I recently dropped my acer on the floor. Now it is experiencing some problems. The laptop powers up, but never boots up fully, I cannot enter safe mode or system set-up. Also it says that the system BIOS...


The shadowing is an old technique. It means (if I remember correctly) that a copy of the BIOS and Video BIOS is stored on the RAM for quicker access. It should be nothing to worry about. The worst thing is that you dropped your laptop! I suspect that when you dropped it, you broke something internally. Without actually seeing the laptop, I cant tell you exactly what the problem is. I would try wiping the drive and reinstalling the OS. That should tell you if its the hard drive. (Although it is an unconventional way to find out). Also, depending on whats broken internally, it may or may not be salvageable, but it never hurts to try.

My sony vaio laptop went a black screen with a white hyphen in the upper left hand corner. It will not cut on and will not reboot


The most-likely cause is a malfunctioning (or even "dead") disk-drive.
Without the disk-drive, Windows cannot be loaded into your RAM.
So, what you get is that "lonely" underscore character.

Find a Microsoft Windows XP "installation" CD-ROM.
Insert it into your CD-drive.
Hold down the ON/OFF button until your computer turns off.
Press the ON/OFF button, to start-up your computer,
and tell your computer to boot from the CD-ROM device.
If it does boot, then the rest of your computer (excluding the disk-drive) is working fine.

Replace the disk-drive, and reinstall Windows, to "revive" your computer.

Installing the jumpstart advanced 1stgrade cd rom that has 4 cds to it and I can't get it to install.


Jumpstart advanced 1stgrade cd rom installation.

System Requirements
Windows: 98/ME/2000/XP; Pentium II 266MHz (Pentium II 300MHz or faster for XP); 64 MB RAM (128 MB RAM for XP); 100 MB HD; 12x CD-ROM drive; 16-Bit color; Windows compatible sound card

If you are installing on a newer OS ie Vista, or Win 7, due to software incompatibility the software might not install, or even you can install the software might no work.

You can try using the "compatibility mode" in Vista or Win 7 to install the programs as "administrator" but no guarante this will work.

Alternatively, you can get a newer version which is compatible to your Operating System.

Hope it helps.

Hi I have a laptop that I cannot use the CD ROM drive It gives me incorrect function even though I okk at it and it tells me the drive is ok the name of the drive is MATSHITA DVD RAM JU-8415 Can you help...


go into your device manager uninstall the device driver , but do not delete it, restart the computer, it should work, if it doesn't try manually updating it to the previous device driver, also boot from a cd to see if the drive works outside of windows.

INF file textsetup.sif is missing


his behavior may occur if any one of the following conditions is true:
  • Your Windows XP CD-ROM is scratched, smudged, or dirty. Clean the Windows XP CD-ROM with a soft cloth, insert it in the CD-ROM drive, and then click OK.
  • Your CD-ROM drive is not working correctly or the CD-ROM might be vibrating too much for the laser to accurately read the data. For more information about this problem, see your hardware documentation or contact the CD-ROM manufacturer.
  • If you are using multiple CD-ROM drives, your computer may be trying to locate files on the wrong drive. If your hardware has a feature to disable CD-ROM drives that are not being used, disable the CD-ROM drives that you are not using.
  • Your computer is over-clocked. Because over-clocking is very memory-intensive, decoding errors may occur when you extract files from your Windows XP CD-ROM.
  • Try to use the default clock timings for your motherboard and processor. For more information about how to do this, see your hardware documentation or contact the motherboard manufacturer.
  • Your computer has damaged or mismatched random access memory (RAM) or cache memory. For example, you might be using a combination of extended data out (EDO) and non-EDO RAM, or different RAM speeds.

    Decoding errors may occur even if Windows appears to be running correctly. These errors occur because of the additional stress that is put on your computer when Windows tries to extract files and to access the hard disk.

    To determine how to make your computer cache memory unavailable while you are running the Setup program, see your hardware documentation or contact your hardware manufacturer.
  • Ultra direct memory access (DMA) is turned on in your computer's CMOS settings, and the data is moving too quickly.
  • Change from DMA mode to Processor Input/Output (PIO) mode to lower your data transfer rate. If this does not resolve the problem, lower your PIO mode settings. The higher your PIO mode settings are, the faster your data transfer is.
  • You are using a third-party memory manager.
  • There is a virus on your computer.
If you continue to receive this error message, copy the i386 folder from the CD-ROM drive to your local hard disk, and then try to run the Setup program from your hard disk.
