Bd rom wont eject


If it does not eject, how does it open?

Make sure it has power (ejects). Check Device Manager in Safe Mode by pressing F8 during boot. Right click My Computer > Manage. Select Device Manager > View > Show Hidden Devices. Now delete all DVD/CD-ROMs and reboot. Windows will say "New Hardware Found" and install. Check BIOS by pressing F key (correct F key is noted during boot) and make sure BIOS see's the Optical Drive.

I have a t60 and it says no active mixer and in control panel it says no audio device although i have downloaded from ibm. no icon


It sounds as though the driver was not correctly installed- try rebooting into safe mode (F8 at splash, select safe mode) and see if there are any devices in device manager with exclamation points. If there are, that is likely your culprit- try uninstalling them then reinstalling the drivers.

My dell inspiron is not working


its not a big problem,first don't panic.just follow the steps i m telling you-
when computer give options like safe mode,safe mode with net working etc.enter on safe mode
after that if windows starts thn run your antivirus installed in your computer and if u dont hav antivirus then install it using pendrive or cd and run it.
after full scan od the system restart computer again.
if problem persists then again start your computer in safe mode and cut all the importand data from your c drive and paste it on d drive or e drive and reinstall XP or VISTA but remember while installing XP OR VISTA computer will ask you to format whole computer or the c drive only,u only format c drive.
tht's it

and always have one good antivirus installed in your system and update it regularly.

cheers

Have you tried booting into safe mode? If not, hit F8 at startup (before the Windows logo) and see if safe mode works. If you can get into safe mode and not normal mode, you have either a) driver problem or b) Windows corruption

If that is the case, you can remove your drivers from your device manager (video and audio drivers are the biggest culprits) and try booting normally again. If the drivers are the problem, windows will boot and try to load drivers for the devices that you removed.

If you end up removing all devices and Windows still won't boot, you either have spyware or viruses on your system ... or Windows is so corrupted that you will need to reinstall.

Be aware that if you have bugs in your system, a simple "Windows repair" might not work. You can try it, but just be aware. Worst case scenario, boot into safe mode again, back up your files to a flash drive, external drive or another partition, then reinstall Windows "clean", which will wipe the C drive and reload a clean install with no bugs and no problems :)

Good luck - hope it helps!
