This problem may be due to corrupt firmware.

Install and run Philips Firmware/Device Manager from the product CD.

Select the repair option and follow the on-screen prompts.

The cd rom of my toshiba satelite U505 expulse the cd's out what can i do

It may be possible that an installed program or a malware has caused your problem with your CD ejecting.

If you know when this started happening, you can try to do a system restore back before that the time the CD ejecting started.

Please go to the link below to perform a system restore, please read what changes in your computer when you perform this change.

If you choose to do a system restore and you still have the CD eject problem, a CD / DVD drive is not expensive and can easily be changed by an owner.

I have a hp Pavillion dv800 with AMD microprocessor. i installed windows 7 and it was working OK but then some of the drivers were not so I formated the hard drive and tried a restore with the original...

Pull the hard drive, remove the battery AND the BIOS battery. Let it sit for 300 seconds. Then replace the BIOS battery and the main battery, but NOT the hard drive, then go into BIOS SETUP, and choose the default settings. Then boot to a bootable CD (such as Hiren's BootCD 15.2, or Parted Magic). Then set the boot options to NOT BOOT to the hard drive. Then reinstall the hard drive, and boot to your Windows installation CD, and reinstall the OS of your choice.

My computer says NTLDR is missing

The files necessary to boot Windows are corrupt or there has been a change to the drive configuration. To repair this you will need the installation CD or a windows ERD (emergency recovery disc) disc. If you can access the drive from a bootable disc try to perform a system restore from a recent restore point. If you use the install CD you can try the "repair" option and at the prompt type "fixboot". If unsuccessful retry and type "fixMBR". If unsuccessful you can try a repair install. The final option is a complete reinstall.

My 13 year old son laptop need be reset like new

There are a couple possible solutions to your problem. If the computer will still turn on and load windows, and I assume you are using Windows XP, you can try doing a system restore. To do this, go to Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, and select System Restore. If system restore is enabled, you should be able to choose a date in the past when the laptop was working properly and restore the computer to that date. If you want to completely reload windows, you will need a Windows XP installation disc. Load the disc in the CD or DVD player and reboot the computer. You should see a screen asking you to press any key to boot from CD, go ahead and press Enter. You will now enter setup where you can reformat the hard drive and reload windows XP. Follow the on-screen instructions to delete any old partitions, and then create a new partition and format it using NTFS. The windows XP installation will continue after the hard drive is formatted. If, when you reboot the computer with the installation disc in the drive, you are not prompted to boot from CD, you may need to reboot and press F2 or F12 to change the boot selection to the CD or DVD drive so it will load the CD first before it tries to load your original Windows installation.

Factory restore

If you have no program choices in the Programs menu to do a factory restore, you will have to use the CD/DVD that came with the computer.
I don't know why you need to do a restore, but if the computer still is working and you don't have a recovery CD/DVD, the Programs area may give you an option to create a set of restore CD's or DVD's.

Otherwise, you will have to request a set from the computer dealer. There are other ways, but they are a bit tedious.

To Reboot a computer is to turn it off, wait at least 20 seconds, then turn it back on.

A.If you're thinking of Reboot, as to reinstall the Operating System, you use a Restoration Disk, (sometimes listed as Recovery Disk), insert it in your CD/DVD drive, and restart your computer.
(Just press the CTRL, ALT and Delete keys AT THE SAME TIME.
Not shouting. Windows XP and Windows Vista are examples of an Operating System)

B.If you're trying to install an Operating System, from a CD disk that you bought, I suggest you go into BIOS Setup, and in Boot Order, change the first boot device to CDROM. Insert the CD disk in your CD/DVD drive, and restart the computer.

If you buy a Full Installation CD disk, as listed above, you have to change the Boot Order.
For example:
1.You have Windows XP on your computer now. It has problems, and doesn't work correctly. Instead of getting the Restoration Disk from your computer manufacturer, you decided to just buy a genuine copy of Windows XP, and install it. (This is a Full Installation Disk)

The Windows XP you have installed now, will not let the one you bought install over it, by just putting the disk in the drive. Change the first boot device, in Boot Order to CDROM, and it will. The Windows XP you have now, will 'see' the Windows XP you're trying to install, as just the same version. You have to install a better version of Windows, in order for it to write over what is installed.
Such as Windows Vista.

2.You have Windows Vista on your computer, and are not happy with it. You would like to put Windows XP on instead. Windows XP is considered a lesser version, and Vista won't let it write over it.
Go to BIOS Setup, change the first boot device in Boot Order, to CDROM, and it will.

System corrupted and would not boot during installation of sp 1

Try cheking the Bios Settings Before Runing the Recovery CD.
Is your computer's bios set up to boot from the cd rom or hard drive first?
If so, try changeing the setting so the computer boots from the CD Rom.
