I have thinkpad T61 it was loaded with vista. It

what kind of media are you loading? is this a DVD or a program disc? If this is a DVD disc, try loading a music CD or other type of disc to see if it is recognized. If so, its possible your PC DVD is unable to recognize that specifc type of DVD. Try other DVD's which you know worked before using Vista. Even though your machine says the device is working properly, check the Lenovo website for updated drivers for the DVD and the board chipset. Let me know if updating the drivers does not work. Meanwhile, I'll see if I can find out any more information from Lenovo.

DELL DIMENSION 2400 ERROR STOP: 0x00000024, (0x00100203,0X82F898

You seem to have an error in the boot sequence of the Operating system. If you are unable to access the safte mode of the OS, then you will have to do a hard boot (boot from disk). My suggestion is seeing that you have a Dell, many times they will give you a boot disk or charge you $10 for one to be sent to you. Boot disks are not expensive at all.

Once you recieve the boot disk, go into the BIOS and change the boot sequence that it boots from your CD/DVD drive first instead of your hard drive (C). Then restart the computer with the disk in the disk drive and it will load from the disk.

If that does not work, you will have to do a reimage. For that you will need a Windows OS CD (XP, Vista - whatever OS you use). From there you can either have your data slaved over to another drive prior to reimaging, or if you dont mind loosing the data, just push in the Windows OS CD and it will ask if you want to over write or reimage, answer yes, and it will begin to wipe your computer and place a brand new copy of the OS on there.

We have windows vista and are unable to upload software that will allow you to load music onto the Sylvania SMPK8854B player

the program that is on the disk does not work at all i used win xp and nothing don't worry about the firmware it does not work i think thats why they stopped making them to load music just plug it in and go to my computer and look for drive letters sometimes G: or H: click and if a open space opens up just drag n drop a mp3 into it unplug player and look for the song you put on and play it the other drive letter will ask you to put in a disk there is no software to put on the music just drag n drop......

Will not boot up past the message I describe below

You might reload your Operating System to correct this. Insert your Recovery disk into your drive, choose DVD as Boot Option, recover your OS.

Blue screen and error message on reboot after installing software

You can try last known good configuration, or if you are running vista, insert and boot to the vista disk and choose your language and choose "Repair my computer" on the next prompt. you can retrieve the info you havent backed up by hooing that drive to another PC, you will probably find the directory structure intact. (you can do this in a desktop internally or with a IDE to usb adapter, or an external Hard Drive enclosure,temp. connected,both are available online or at tech stores)
