Question about Averatec Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Keeps restarting My husband bought Averatec laptop in 2004, a year later something happen. I took it to have it check and they said it's the DVD ROM. So I had it replaced. Everything worked for a while, then we moved. when I turn on my laptop now it keeps restarting itself for like forever, my battery would probably run out. Anyway, I could get into the ''AMIBIOS HIFLEX SETUP UTILITY'' But i don't know anything about computers so i didn't do anything. What should i do and what is the problem?

There's seems to a problem with your laptop, obviously. This behaviour is a bit natural when a computer suddenly found an error it will keep in rebooting to try to free itself of error. Why not have it check again.

It could be the newly installed dvdrom is not properly reset in bios configuration. Have the new drive be redetect. And set it also in OS, change the settings to the newly installed drive. Or maybe uninstalling and reinstalling its driver to fit into the new drive.

hope I help.

Dvd rom will not work


This is normally caused by missing or corrupt drivers for your CD drive. Again if the CD drive is not properly connected to the motherboard of your laptop, this can also happen

1. Try to restart the laptop and observe the results. Make sure there is no CD in the CD drive.
2. If you still have the same result, go to "my computer" and check whether the CD ROM
appears on the list of devices. If it appears then, right click on it and try to eject.
By doing this you want to check whether the CD tray is still mobile and not blocked
by anything else.
3.Then right-click on it again and go to its properties and go to the "Hardware" tab
4. In the Hardware tab, notice the list of drives connected to your laptop and choose the Cd Rom and go to "Properties"
5. Notice at this point, whether the device is said to be working properly or there is something wrong with it.
6. Then go to the "Driver" Tab, and choose "update driver"
6. This will let your system look for the missing or corrupt drivers for your CD drive.
Restart your computer and observe the results

I have a new laptop hpDV61340SA with windows 7 iam trying to load on a genuine copy of ms office 2003 and all that happens is the drive makes a noise as though it is trying to do something but nothing...


It means your Dvd-Drive can't read the contents of the Cd/Dvd media, try the media on another computer and check if it can be read or not, if it is so, then your option is to copy the files from the cd to the other Pc and save it to your flash drive, so that you can install it later, or if you can, replace the dvd/cd rom drive with another spare. Good luck.

Averatec 3200, cant find DVD Rom driver in "My Computer" or "Device Manager" When I put in a CD I can hear the disk spinning but it never loads. I deleated the upper and lower filters and restarted the...


Hello,

Make sure the BIOS is 'seeing' the drive. Reboot your pc, press F2 as soon as it starts to boot (Or watch your screen and the POST will display which function key to press to enter setup.) If the BIOS is NOT seeing the drive, you may need to a) replace the drivers for the dvd or b) replace the dvd rom itself. (I recommend the drivers first.) Please repost your results and we will continue to monitor your progress.

Good Luck

My dvd drive is not working when i put any game or film cd nothing happens i tried it many times but the answer is same please help me to solve this


There can me many solutions,
1. first one and the most possible problem is the malfunctioning of the drivers.to solve this plz uninstall ur DVD ROM drivers from the driver manager and then restsrt it, when you will restart the system it will automatically say that new hardware has been fonded and drivers will be installed automatically just wait for that.Restart again, and u will find it runnig.

2. might be lens of it is cracked, dusty so check tht.

3. Might be u have denied it from reading through BIOS.

4 Also check that you have not taken the aceess rights of users from reading CD/DVDs

My DVD wont recognize any DVDs. This just started today.


Well, DVD Drives do burn out, and while you probably don't want to hear it, you might have to buy a new one. If you have restarted the computer several times, and haven't installed anything lately, then it may just be dead. But you should try to remember if you have installed anything lately, or done anything to change the laptop. Also, see if it will read CD's, or if it makes noise like the CD/DVD is spinning up/down or the eye is moving back and forth when you insert it. Good Luck

Cd-rom/dvd-rom door won't open


Hi!This is not a big problem...All you have do is take a pin, needle or something and just insert it into the small hole near your cd-rom drive..try this repeatedly while pressing the eject button..If it doesn't work you will have to unscrew the two screws on the right of your keyboard..doing this will give you the access to the cd tray and you can remove the cd and put it back together..
