Hi there my Toshiba laptop seems to have suddenly stopped recognising or starting any windows vista programs previously on the hardrive. Please help, thanks


hello

take your CD recovery and place into CD ROM .. reboot system, allow to get to the part of the CD OS where it will ask you to REPAIR . Run it and reboot. You have to repeat until the OS boots up normally again.

Also, after repairing, run the WIndows Update

regards

I have a Gateway GT5465E and the CD rom is not reading discs when I put them in. Any way I can fix this myself?


Base from the description of your problem it seems this is a issue with your registry and if you already did uninstall and reinstall the CD ROM from device manager the next thing to do here is to correct it from the registry editor

Follow these steps, Click start > RUN type REGEDIT and then once you have that window open look for this string, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

Once you have find that on in the right pane, right-click UpperFilters and LowerFilters , and then click Delete.

Close the registry editor and then open device manager and uninstall the CD ROM and once done do scan for hardware changes and CD ROM will be back and running again.

Screen display problems when running Adventures in Typing


I bought this for my daughters back in 2000. Now I find my mother wants to become a silver surfer and she would like to learn how to type letters. I tried using Adventures in typing on her laptop and saw that there were compatability issues. After a lot fo experimneting I found asloution that works every time and is as simple as can be. this is what I did (and printed out for my Mum:-)





Hi Mum :-)
Video problems with Adventures in typing with Timone and Poomba

There are compatibility issues with Windows Vista and this program

To overcome these problems we need to force windows Vista to use an
older Video format (from the days when the program was first published).


A short cut has been created and placed on your desktop.
The compatibility (properties) on the short cut have been set to –
  • Windows 95
  • 256 colours
  • 640 x 480

To create the short cut –
Place the CD-rom in the Disc bay and hold down the Shift key while the the CD-rom boots up. This prevents Autorun.
Now use Windows Explorer to look at the files and folders on the CD-rom.
Look for the Setup.exe file.
Right click on it to create a short cut that will be placed on your desktop.
Go to the short cut and right click on it to select the properties.
Now change the compatibility to the settings mentioned above.
Remove the CD-rom from the disc bay.

This is how to use the program Adventures in typing with Timone and Poomba on a computer running Windows Vista

  1. Do not put the CD-rom in the computer until you are asked
  2. Indentify the shortcut/icon on your desktop to start the program
    Click on this shortcut/icon
  3. When the computer asks for the CD-rom, place it in the disc bay and wait for the program to start.
  4. Use the program as normal.
  5. To quit the program so that it saves the progress you have made – use the QUIT symbol in the program’s screen
  6. When the program has shut-down, remove the CD-rom from the disc bay
Note that steps 1 through to 7 have to be done every time the program is started and stopped.

You will not have to do anything to put settings back to where they should be – Windows Vista will do that automatically.

This is how to stop any program if you are having problems and can not see how to stop it.
  1. Press the following two keys together Ctrl Alt
  2. While holding those two keys down, press a third key – the Delete key
  3. A menu will pop up.
    Click once on the Task Manager option
  4. A new window will open with a list of the programs that are running on your computer. Click once on the program that is causing the problem.
  5. At the bottom of the new window click on End Task
  6. The program that was causing the problem will be shut down for you.
Note that using this method is a sort of emergency stop so it will not save any new work you have done on the program/file.

The setup wizard on the CD will not automatically run when inserted in the CD-ROM drive, what do i do?


  1. click on start
  2. My computer
  3. right click on CD/DVD Drive
  4. Left click auto run

selecting My Computer, right-clicking the drive that contained the CD-ROM, and selecting Properties. click the AutoPlay tab and select the Select an action to perform option, then double-click the program to use to run the CD-ROM. This action launched the program on the CD-ROM. Note that simply highlighting the program you want to use and clicking OK or Apply doesn't work; you must double-click the program and force it to launch on the CD-ROM or DVD in the drive. The CD-ROM then ran automatically, using the program associated with it on the AutoPlay tab.

How to get a CD-ROM program to run?


You're probably going to have to set up an ActiveSync connection between your PC and your 2415, then run the program installer on your PC while you're connected to the iPaq.
