Question about Compaq Pesario S4120WM (DK216AR#ABA) PC Desktop

1 Answer

CD DVD Code 41

It all sorta started once I used Tweak UI and at the same time I also started using the flash drive. In both the Presario lap - with one dvd and a Dell Demension desktop with two dvd. Both units issued Code 41, the correct drivers are listed. But the computers are not successfully entering a drive letter. What cha think? our compaq presario doesn't recognize the dvd player anymore, yet if I unistall it - turn off the computer - it recognizes it as new hardware, say's it has installed the hardware but the device is not connected. I checked all the cables - they are snug and secure, the jumper is in the right spot - just isn't recognized as a drive. I know it's something simple, but I can't think of the solution

    I tried this fix but the computer wouldn't let me delete the upper or lower filters. Is there anything I can try now?

On the Edit menu, click Delete, and then click OK.
Quit Registry Editor.NOTE: After you remove the Upperfilters value and the Lowerfilters value, if you notice lost functionality in a particular program, such as CD recording software, you may need to reinstall that software. If the problem recurs, consult with the software vendor for assistance.

SR1500NX Model desktop compaq presario got a virus yesterday. I was running virus scanner, takes 4-5 hrs usually. About 90 mins in, my brother came and closed everything out, and just went on using it. Now...


Make sure you do not have a diskette in the diskette drive, if you have one. Check the connections on the hard drive make sure they are all properly seated (on the system board as well as on the drive). Once this is done check to see if the system starts up. If the same error continues, take the hdd off and put it in another computer (make sure you have virus protection on it). Next take all of your files and copy them to a flash drive or cd. Once you have saved your files reinstall the hard drive on the original machine. Startup the machine and go to your setup menu and set your computer to boot from the cd rom drive. Install your windows cd in the cd rom drive and reboot your machine and reinstall windows, reinstall your programs from their respective disks, and copy your files from the backups you created to the flash drive or cd.
Good luck and remember to always backup your system. This will save time in the event this happens again.

I have a compaq presario SR2150NX and i need to replace the CD drive. What should i buy


The solution is that do not replace the cd drive !!
You could buy a new DVD writer drive which can be very useful.
You can use both "cd drive" and the new "dvd drive" at a time.
New DVD drive comes only for rs.1200/- to 1500/- .(LG,Samsumg or moserbaer).

Yes ! you can operate them normally as usual.
Only call your computer engg. to make connections or the shopman to fit the dvd and cd drive.

Dvd-cd rw drive


This means that your CD-rom drive does not read the CD, it could be that the CD is a different format (DVD, for example) or the lens is dirty or Your drive is faulty. see if your drive is compact or dvd and try the right formats. Try clean your CD-drive lens. If all this does not fix the problem, your drive is faulty. And needs repair.

I want to restore my laptop to factory settings. I have a compaq, presario v4000 but it did not come with a system restore cd.


baby,
There is an option to make system restore disk for your Lap.
Goto Start->Program -> HP Recovery -> Create System recovery.
WARRNING: its one time runnign software. So use good quality DVD to make your recovery DVD and keep it safe.
It might take 2-3 DVD so be patient as it will take time.
  • After creating DVD, make copy of all your important documents/file to any where like flash memory/CD or DVD as all the files and softwares will be deleted which you have installed/copied or saved after first boot.
  • Then re-start your lap with the created first recovery DVD.
  • Follow the on screen instructions...

There is also a way to run your recovery from your HDD.
  • Keep pressing F9 after booting your lap till Boot Selection menu appears. Select Recovery and follow the on screen instructions. But before recovery make all backups of your important data.

If any question just..Ask me.

Thanks
Iqbal
