Wont start

ok try the following in order

1 make sure power adapter is plugged into a socket which is turned on and delivering power
2 with power adapter plugged into laptop are any lights showing, you should have at least a battery light showing if the power adapter is delivering power
3 when n you turn on your on button press f8 and see if you are returned the bios setup page, if you are then your motherboard is at least reading the bios if not you may have a motherboard issue
4.from a different computer search for knoppix and burn to a cd/dvd which ever your laptop has
5. put the newly burnt knoppix disc in your cd/dvd drive tray and close tray and start system again.
6. knoppix will run as an operating system directly from cd/dvd. and allow you to check if your hard drive can be seen at least, if not then you may have an issue with your hard drive or the motherboard to hard drive interface.

if you can see your hartd drive it is likely your operating system might be corrupt or problems with disc, but you will at least be able to take files from hard drive to a usb stick and then reload operating system and have your data

hope it helps

Dell desktop does not start booting when powered up. Fans and drives have power. Boot drive has been checked and is operating properly. Any suggestions??

Try to boot from a CD/DVD disc. Don't know how you can check your boot drive to see if it's O.K. though? If the computer boots from a CD/DVD disc then your OS (operating system software ) is corrupt and needs to be reloaded. That by the way is located on your boot (hard disk ) drive.

I turn on my Asus N50V and it hangs at the initial ASUS splashscreen ... if I hit F2 to entr the BIOS it goes through basic post but then hangs on the BIOS "Wait..." screen

Please remove any external devices (if connected) to your laptop
Remove the power adapter cable
Remove the battery
Push and hold the power button for 10 seconds, this will remove unwanted charge from the laptop electronics.
Then connect the power adapter cable alone and switch the laptop on and check if it is working fine.
If not remove the power adapter and connect the battery alone and try if it works fine. If it still does not then we have to remove the other components that are detachable from the laptop like

1. CD / DVD drive
2. Hard drive
3. Memory modules (if you have 2 remove one)
4. PC cards

even after checking with all the above options, if the computer is freezing we can definitely confirm a core hardware issue.

Toshiba cd-rw/dvd-rom drive...power on but disc door will not actvate and open

There are quite a few reasons the DVD tray in your laptop might fail to open when you hit the eject button. About the worst thing it can be is if the motor or gear train failed, which would mean replacing the drive. If the disc in the drive plays OK, you know that the power and the connector are fine. If not, you should try reseating the drive in the bay. It's also possible for the drive to be locked in software by the operating system, or for a power management scheme to have cut power to the drive. Check these by right clicking the drive icon and checking properties, or looking at you power management settings. But, when all else fails and you can't get the disc out of the drive, there's always, THE MIGHTY PAPERCLIP.

Follow the bellow link,

Hope this helps,

1) there are no drivers....your operating system has whats needed to operate it.
2) hooking it to a netbook will require you to have it put in an encloser that has a power source, as you can not run the drive with out power supply.
3) you would be better off buying an external DVD Burner, One designed for your purpose. That unit you have will not operate on its own, and you can not hook it directly to your netbook

Power Callibration Error

This error has nothing to do with your DVD drive hardware, so you can be sure your Laptop is ok. This is software error with Nero. Try and reinstall Nero or just try and burn DVDs at lower speed.
