Hi there, this is an early sign of a critical error that exist in the system32 file folder. this is unfortunately a virus that is slowly disabling your CPU. the best thing here is to initiate a system restore before the virus attacks the restore files as well. if the system restore doesn't work, i suggest a total system reinstall. i would clear all partions for safty.

You might have a loose wire and the vibration is shorting it out or it may be a driver issue.
Try this, see if there is an exclimation mark or and X in the device drivers, if so uninstall and reinstall the driver for that device.
I hope this helps.
Good Luck.

This could have do with either your processor overheating, or not enough power supplied by your power supply. Make sure your case is clean of dust and the processor fan is spinning. You may also consider removing an extra drive to see if that helps. If all else fails try reinstalling windows. If you need further assistance let me know. Also please take a moment to accept and rate my solution accordingly.
Thanks,
Lee

Wen I turn on PC using Windows Vista I get the warning no boot device available. What does this mean?


Hi britchel07,
I see that you are having issue booting into windows on your system.
I can help you with your concern, we can first try to boot into the Hard drive manually, follow the steps below,
1. Power your computer ON then keep on tapping the F12 key on top the keyboard until you get the Boot Menu screen,
2. On the Boot Menu screen select the Hard drive it maybe listed as SATA or HDD, but if it is not listed then we may need to try a different option, on the Boot Menu the Hard Drive should be the first one on the list.
3. Highlight the Hard Drive on the list then press Enter to make your computer boot into the Hard Drive.
if this does not work then your Hard Drive may not be detected by the machine, why I really can't tell there are many possible causes, but we can try other options to see if this can be rectified.
I believe that you have a Desktop machine, we will need to open up the tower to check if there are lose cables inside from the Hard Drive to your systems Motherboard, inside you should see a Flat Orange like red colored cable sometimes Blue that should be your SATA cable going to your Hard Drive from the Motherboard, try reseating the SATA cable to make sure it is properly connected and also check the SATA power cable just to be surem it should also be a black flat cable connected to the Hard drive just right nest to the SATA cable, after reseating the two cables try turning the computer ON again and see if the system will boot into Windows.
If still you get the Error no boot device found then you may need to get a new Hard Drive for your system.
I hope that this will be helpful with your concern, Have a nice day.

Can't get restore dvd to work?


You need to boot to the bios/setup. Set the first boot device to be the optical drive. Open the drive and put the restore disk in. Exit the bios and save your changes. Restart the machine.

The computer should boot to the restore disk and all data will be erased from the hard drive.

I need to remove a disk from a Sony NEC Optiarc AD-7640S


CD Stuck in Device
First try the normal methods to remove the disc. Drag its icon to the Trash can in the Dock or select 'Eject' from the File menu. If you are running a virtual machine, e.g. VMFusion, ensure that the CD is disconnected from the virtual machine. This will sometimes allow the CD to now show up in Mac OS X. Shut down the computer and start up whilst holding down the mouse button. This may take some time, but keep your finger on the mouse button right up until the disc comes out or the log-in screen has appeared. If you have Toast Titanium installed on your computer, choose EJECT DISC from the menubar. Sometimes you can successfully use the eject disc button in iTunes even if the disc is not visible to the Finder Open Disk Utility and choose the disc you wish to eject in the left-hand pane, then click on the Eject button. Some Macintoshes have a paperclip hole that you can insert a straightened paperclip into, manually triggering the eject mechanism. Open Terminal and type "drutil tray eject" to eject the disc/tray, and "drutil tray close" to close the tray. Restart the computer while holding down Command-Option-O-F, to enter the Open Firmware prompt. Type "eject cd" without the quotes, and press return. The disk ought to eject. To start into OS X, type "mac-boot" without the quotes. Press return, and the computer will continue with the startup. (This will not work on an Intel Mac. There is no Open Firmware on Intel Macs. ) If your computer has an eject button on the keyboard, restart the computer holding down the Option key. When the startup disk selection screen appears, let go of the option key and press the keyboard's eject button.

How do I eject my cd from my studio computer?


Assuming the normal eject button isn't working....

Shut the computer down. Do not just re-boot. Wait at least two minutes, then start the machine again. After it re-boots, try ejecting the CD again with the eject button.

If still no luck, look for a small hole in the CD drive front cover. Open a paper clip and insert it into the hole carefully. This should permit the CD door to open.

This problem can sometimes be caused by a bad CD and in other cases, a corrupt CD driver. If it keeps happening, try re-installing the drivers for the drive. The last resort would be a bad CD/DVD drive.

Sometimes the DVD drive will not open. It is fairly annoying.


Sir,
Go to My Computer and right clicked on the DVD Rom drive and clicked eject. If any error appears let me know. Also try to insert a straightened paper clip into the designated hole on the CD/DVD drive casing to manually force an eject. If it is not worked replace the cables(master slave).
Thanks Good Luck

Optiarc DVD Drive does not work anymore.


Try uninstalling the device in the Device Manager, then restart the computer. See if Windows redetects the device and reinstall it. Next, try accessing the BIOS and see if the BIOS sees it, and be sure its enabled there. If both of these options fail, open the machine and make sure that the drive has a working power connector attached. If the connector is bad, switch the power lead over to a working connector.
