Re: cd burner

What programs can I use to burn or create CD's on my computer? If you're running version 10 or higher and have a CD/DVD burner drive installed in your computer you can create audio CDs using it.

Computer DVD Support
CH000885, CD or other disc tray does not close or opens by itself. CH000901, My CD or DVD is skipping. CH001014, Can a DVD burner also burn a CD?
What hardware do you recommend or what is the best? What type of burner, CD-ROM, computer, DVD, fan, hard disk drive, monitor, motherboard, mouse, printer, sound card, speakers, and/or video card does.

Computer CD-R help and technical information The CD-R drive does not actually create pits on the CD, instead the burner creates reflective sections on the CD causing the computer's CD-ROM laser to.

Good Luck, Read and follow instructions.Please dont for get to Vote/Thank You.

I need BIOS reboot password for Asus x552e laptop...complete hard reset with no disks as laptop was purchased from a pawn shop. Please help

When you say "BIOS Reboot Password", are you trying to say that you are unable to get to the Operating System because there is a BIOS password required that you don't have, OR are you able to boot the system, but want to return it to the factory defaults since it was previously owned? In the first case, you have a problem. Without the BIOS password, you may not be able to access the system at all. This should have been checked out at the pawn shop before the purchase - I mean who wants to own a brick? If you CAN boot up, but are trying to access the recovery partition to restore the unit to factory-new load condition, then you need the manual. You can find the manual in your language at the link provided below.
Look at the back of chapter five for "reset" procedure. You will see that pressing the F9 key during the POST time will send you to a reset screen that will let you return the PC to factory defaults. This is dependent upon, however, the recovery partition to be still intact and working. Best of luck to you.

Download a Windows 7 ISO to USB , 3.5GB's more or less, and open Boot Menu,Boot from USB. Of course you will have to but the Product Key : When you deleted McAfee, did you use the McAfee Removal Tool from the McAfee website? Did you try a System restore/recovery? Unplug, remove battery, plug in, try another restore, you may have to repeat, unplug each time.

I bought a dell inspiron laptop at a pawn shop and i cant get past administrative privilege's what can i do?

Hello there!

That is a problem. You have to go back from where you have purchased your laptop, thinking might they didn't provide you the complete details of your system.

However, you can format your system but make sure that you have all the system backup, OS, and the cd drivers of your system.

If you need further assistance, please let me know.

I want to know if i have an internal hhard drive on my acer aspire 7520-5907. I wanted to wipe my hard drive and staart with a clean lap top, but it keeps asking for a password. I have purchased it at a...

Of course your laptop have an internal hard disk drive And it has a working operating system which unfortunately locked by a password.

To start a fresh installation, you need to have a Windows CD/DVD Installer and a valid CD key.

Turn ON your laptop and load the CD Installer. Leave the CD Installer in the CD drive and restart your laptop by turning it OFF and then back on. It will then start the Setup Program which will guide you in installing a fresh copy of Windows.

I cant fint my system recover drive, i want to reinstall visat on it, its toshibe satellite A135-S4427 please help

Most Toshiba computers do _NOT_ come with a set of "System Recovery" disks.

Instead, there is a program installed on the computer that you use to write your own set of CD/DVD diskettes, using your "blank" disks and your CD/DVD burner. Run the program to create a set of disks.

Or, when you restart your computer, look for displayed text like "press Fnn to start System Recovery". Press the named key.

I just purchased a used hp laptop at a pawn shop. it has no recovery discs. how do i restore it to the original settings?

use the system restore option or download a program called system rescue and run that or format HD. The system rescue program will erase everything and require re-installation of windows. System restore will bring back to original settings.

Factory settings?

First step should be to reformat the drive as this will clean out the physically allocated files, or try using FDISK

Overheating laptop

Well Try cleaning the air vents and use the system on a flat surface like a table as the air flow might not be flowing inside the system.And also there could be an issue with the heatsink on the system.As for the Cd Burner try using the system restore and see if that works
