Question about Acer Aspire 1642ZWLMi Notebook
I purchased my laptop several months ago and live in a remote location, not easy to get work done under warranty. My dvd player will not read a cd or dvd unless i restart the pc, when i remove it and try another one it still reads the previous dvd unless i restart the pc. I have tried everything with autoplay because i believe that autoplay has something to do with it but even that wont work
Hi, Had this problem once in XP Pro SP2 and tried so many remedies which did not correct it. Finally, I found out that my registry was modified by a malicious software (maybe a virus even). It would then possibly be: a modified registry value; a tweaking utility was applied (like Tweak-XP Pro or TweakUI), and/or an update or security software disabled/modified some default features. Of particular interest was the setting at this registry entry: HKEY_USERS\DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer I have attached a screenshot of the current settings/values of this particular entry. Of course, the usual precaution when modifying registry applies - backup, copy old values that you may revert if it does not work, etc.
