Hi im josh in cebu phils. friend when it happens when you cannot burn your cd the problem centers on the software and device it self. the first thing to do is try to reinstall or install other burning program such as alcohol, nero, etc.try different programs.when it stilll occurs then the problem is you device.just replace it. Good luck

I HAVE A IBM THINKPAD T42, IT HAS WINDOWS PRODUCT KEY AT THE BACK, I FORMATED IT AND I WANT TO REINSTALL THE OS BUT I DONT HAVE THE ORIGINAL CD AND ALSO I DONT KNOW WHICH SERVICE PACK WAS IT. CAN I USE ANY...


This T42 was probably installed with Windows XP. Pro. Look at the label it will state which version of XP and on the left hand side of the label you will see a version no. X08 or X10, You can use any Windows XP Pro CD that is the same version that is on the label ie. X08 or X10.
The latest Service pack for XP is SP3.

IMB T42 Laptop Sound card quality is really poor what up grades


It's probably _not_ the soundcard (chipset), but the teeny little
crummy speakers built into the T42. On a thin, light laptop the manufacturers have to make some compromises, and one of them is that they give you miniature speakers that aren't much good for music reproduction.

The fix: either uses earphones or plug in external speakers into
the earphone jack. You can get pretty good, pretty cheap external speakers that give you fine sound.
