This happens every time you try to read a cd? movie? music? game?

I have a desktop computer that does the same thing, appears to be a hardware issue, I haven't been able to find a solution to the issue and it sometimes restarts when theres a type of a disc in the drive.

this is a laptop? Let me know what kind of discs you have problems with.

Sir i have dell vostro 1014 laptop.. I want to format my laptop.. I try it but the c folder is not format the O.S was install in D folder.. But i want to format my c folder and boot the system on c folder...


The operating system installer CD your is damage. Just get other copy of operating system and it sure will work. I happens to me like that the when you load the operating system installer CD it does not load or when loading the set up, some files are missing or cannot be copy because of the CD lens problem. Too many scatches or not good copy of operating system.

My screen on my compaq cq60-615dx notebook goes black after being bon it for like 20 min it comes back to where i was like 2 min later then the optical resoulition icon pops up

You can try reinstalling your graphics drivers with the CD included with your laptop. Alternatively, try running Windows Update.
If your laptop is still under warranty, I would consider contacting compaq about getting it repaired.

Go Book VR-2 takes 5 mins to load XP O/S

GO TO RUN TYPE IN MSCONFIG then click on start up tab, you can click items that you do not want starting up every time you boot your computer. Most items that fall under PROGRAM FILES are not necessary to boot up your computer.

Toshiba M35X-S349 (Freezes Periodically)

Update: I looked at the plug connecting the HD to the PC and pulled it about 1/2 way back off and reinserted into machine. I then pulled the HD back out and noticed that it was not all the way pushed back on and it wasnt parallel to the HD. Basically I am thinking that the HD is not sitting properly in the bay for some reason or another, but I have been running 10+ hours with no problems as of yet. I did reformat the HD so I am going down that road of reloading and letting run awhile, reboot, repeat. Not sure if solution, but looking real good at this point.
