When starting up your PC, just before the Windows startup logo appears and after the PC starts up, press F8, and then choose the "Last Known configuration" startup.

You can start working from there on...

Hope That Helps!

The DVD/CD drive on my Medion 8830 PC no longer burns

Have you changed or upgraded your OS recently?
Looks like the drivers are corrupt or out-dated.
Might go to your computer mfg support site or the Drive mfg support site and download the latest drivers.
Uninstall whatever drivers are loaded reboot and reinstall fresh copies.
