There is a problem in your system. did you try burning using other application such as nero or other burning program.

try to reinstall your itunes program and then install again after restarting. else your system need to refresh so that all application program will be seat organize and and functional.

    hello again,

    Ok, try to uninstall the DVD decoder and then try. For your DVD DEcoder , use only the VLC player which is complete decoder for all type of movie.(Download VLC player , just search in google)

    if this not then, you have to restore your system on previous date where the Itunes is functional.

Just use the XP disc that came with yoru computer and do a repair reinstall.

first screen you boot to you select to install windows. it will show the legal agreement you hit f8 then it will scan for versions of windows. at this point hit R for repair and allow it to do so. it will reinstall and repair the os. this will fix the account issue as well as leave your programs and drivers intact.

I have a dell dimension 5100 won't come on after shut down.

I will need some more information? Can you see anything on the screen? Have you tried hitting F8 while the computer is booting to see if you can start it in safe mode. It could be one of many problems. I do not want to just guess.

I get an error 4280 when I attempt to burn an audio cd

Apparently a common error; if you google error 4280 you'll get several different versions of what is happening. Some blame the Sony CD's other blame Dell, HP, I said there is a long list so I didn't want to pick out just one, it depends on your Computer type, combined with the go ahead and take a look. Personally from reading some of the fixes I came up with; don't use Sony disc and run at 16x to get rid of the error. Hope this helps..

No supported disc burner found on dimension 3000, attempting to burn cd from itunes

Check the task manager. Is a program named "gearsec.exe" running? If not, iTunes didnt install the gear burning engine or you disabled it.
