What operating system are you using?

I will assume you are using Windows.
To be honest those disks are ****. I hate to say it that way but try a different method. What is the original problem? Why are you using the recovery disks?

Try using System Restore which can be found by going Start>All Programs>accessories>System Tools>System Recovery.

Then choose a system restore point.

I hope this helps

Picmeta PIE program freezes up when selecting files

Do your friends run 64-bit Windows? If not, then uninstall this from your PC and go to their web site. Try to find a version specifically for 64-bit Operating Systems.

If you cannot get it to work at all, then uninstall it completely, so it does not interfere with other applications.

Hi, I have a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Laptop. I have a serious problem with the screen. Every time it boots up the screen stays black, but I can hear it booting up. Anybody here any idea what the problem is?...

Look closely, you should be able to see the Windows desktop.
The fluorescent backlight is not lit up.
The lamp may be blown (not likely) or the inverter cable connector is loose.
Power OFF the laptop and remove the battery & power supply.
Remove the keyboard bezel.
Follow the cable from the screen to the motherboard. Re-seat the connector.
Assemble & power up.

Unfortunately this is a common problem with some laptops. Check Dell's web site for any sound driver updates. If that doesn't help, the following worked on a HP laptop running Vista. Get the Run command:
1. Please press and hold windows key and press R.Then a Run window opens.
In that window:
2. In the Open box, type services.msc

Scroll through the Services Window to locate any Windows Audio Services. Stop any that are running (right click and choose Stop) and click OK. Restart those services (right click and choose Start) then click Apply and OK.

Now try your audio again.

I hope this helps.
