Im not able to boot from os cd the bios can see rom drive and hard drive but im not able to boot iv'e tried f12 but no joy can you help?


hi there.

If you go to the bios on start up and select cd rom drive as your primary boot and then restart. Your computer will then try to boot first from the cd rom drive and second from the hard drive. If it fails to boot from the disk then this would lead me to believe that either the disk is unreadable by the drive or that the cd rom drive itself is unable to read the disk.

Unable to do install of XP. during install process pc reports unable to copy various .dll's and other files from install disk. install disk is in perfect condition.


The message refers to the CD/DVD drive being unable to read from the CD itself. That could mean that either the disk is in bad condition and cannot be read (i.e. scratches, old disk, etc) OR that the drive has difficulty reading from the disk.
In the later case, it's the drive's fault and not the disk's (since you mention it's in perfect condition).
You could try cleaning up the drive but it's usually not worth it and since they're quite cheap, I would recommend getting a new DVD drive instead.
Hope that helps!

When I star up my computer Toshiba a135-S4427, it boots up and then goes to a blank black screen. I am unable to get to the log in screen. It just sits there, I can hear the processors and the fans...


Seems a problem with RAM. Remove your RAM from the slot and start the PC, long beep sounds are audible, then the RAM is OK, else time to buy a new RAM/ memory.
Else Try for the Hard Disk, Check the Hard disk in your's friend's PC, remove his Hard disk and insert yours, if the same problem arises, change the Hard Disk or if nothing happens, system boots,
it seems a problem with motherboard, Get it repaired by a expert or buy a new one.this will work.
Enjoy !!! Thank you for using Fixya !!!

Unable to restore back to factory image read error


Are you using Factory CD/DVD or Made from utlity Disks or from hard drive utility option.
This seems to be a CD read error.
I found the same error code need help for posted for HP, Compaq, Gateway, ETC.
ALL new setups with the MAKE RECOVERY DISK UTILITY and NO factory disks.
Factory recovery disks are available for $60 and up from manufacturers.
Other option is Install Retail OS - get drivers from manufacturer - Install software you want to use.
Other option is expensive but reliable.
Factory option would be for your system only.

Ibm thinkpad A31 Windows unable to start normally. Message on blue screen indicating "unmountable_boot_volume". Also got "Kernal_data_inpage_error" message. Does this indicate hard drive failure??


No, this is a known error within Windows. Read more information on it here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/555302

But, if you are like me and don't like to read, just put your windows XP installation CD into the CD-ROM, boot up from the CD-ROM, DO NOT reinstall the operating system...just repair the installation and run "chkdsk /r".

Once that is done, restart the machine and it should boot up fine.

No read no write


One possible source of difficulty is there are different blanks for "slow" recorders (1x - 4x), "high speed" recorders (4x-10x), "ultra speed" recorders (12x-24x), and "ultra speed +" recorders. The disc manufacturers had to change the way the discs were made to accommodate each successive improvement, so older recorders don't work with the newer disks.
It is possible for some 4x-capable "slow" drives to use the "fast" blanks with a firmware upgrade, but there is no advantage to doing so since you're still limited to 4x recording (unless, of course, you're unable to find "slow" CD-RW blanks).
CD-RW discs for the faster drives are labeled with a "High Speed", "Ultra Speed", or "Ultra Speed +" logos. Make sure you buy the right blanks for your drive.

Prism DVD-352P not loading any disks


What you are hearing is the attempt to read the disk. The unti detects that a disc is present and attempts to read it by spinning it first at CD speeds then at DVD speeds. It will attempt this a number of times before giving up and reporting "no disc". If you can get at the optics, try cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. Next try to read a CD. If you can read a music CD and not a DVD, it indicates that the optics are starting to fail and need to be replaced.
