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.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

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.
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.
you might have to uninstall both the dvd/cd + its drivers then reinstall them actually unplug the cd/dvd from its power cable then restart your computer plug it back in your computer should activate found new hardware or control panel admistrive tools,computer management,device manager scroll down cd dvd rom drives right click you can you can update driver,roll back driver,or select properties general troubleshoot, select driver click to reinstall drivers click update driver or uninstall then reinstall hope this helps
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.
See if it gets listed in Device Manager. You can access this from Start->Control panel->System->Hardware->Device Manager.
If it gets listed with some error tag, try uninstalling & then Scan for new hardware
the very first thing what u can try is that take the cd drive out of the computer and the put it back in and then try and play the cd or dvd and try with the dfferent cd's or dvd's and still if it doesnt play then what u can do is that delte the upper filter and the lower filter from registry tye regedit on the run box and then open the hkey_local_machine>system>current control set>control>class>4d36e965-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318....double click on this and then on the right hand side u can see the upper filter and the lower filter just delete that and then restart the computer and it will work and still if it doesnt work then replace the cd/dvd rom
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.
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
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
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.
