Hello rambush,

Is the cd burner external like a USB, or is it built in to the computer?

I am getting the message "NTLDR is compressed, press control/alt/delete to restart". i dont have an XP CD to restore with. What should I do?

Hello my friend,you can download setup disk from Microsoft.
Start your computer,boot from cd(keep pressing F8 and select cd rom).
Select Run Microsoft Recovery Console , click Next , and then follow the onscreen instructions.
Press R to repair the Windows XP installation using Recovery Console.
Enter the appropriate number for the WINDOWS installation, for example, the WINDOWS installation could be listed as 3: C:WINDOWS or 3: D:WINDOWS .
If prompted, enter your Administrator password and press Enter . If there is no password, just press Enter .
At the prompt, if the WINDOWS installation you selected was C:WINDOWS, type:
cd c:
Or, if the WINDOWS installation you selected was D:WINDOWS, type:
cd d:
At the prompt, type:
attrib -c ntldr
and then press Enter .
At the prompt, type: exit
Press the Enter key and immediately remove all discs or diskettes from the computer to allow the computer to restart.
The error message should be resolved.
Good luck:)

Had to restart windows tonight and now have no sound on computer. nee dto find out which audio driver to download to replace it for trouble shooting information. Also pull up your Windows media player and check if the volume has been muted or turned all the way down. If you had a error message, then the file might of been corrupted or deleted. Which Windows version are you running. XP, Vista, Windows 7 or something older?

No boot sectors on the hard disk

You need the BOOT selection option and then pint it to the cdrom drive that has your windows in it and take it from there

DVD player won't play DVD

Try downloading a DVD player such as uberdownloads. If the player still doesn't work, then look for an mpeg 2 decoder on the website for your video card manufacturer. If you are using windows XP check the region code on your DVD player that matches the region code on the DVD. This is done by selecting my computer, moving the mouse to your dvd player, pressing the right mouse button, selecting properties, and look for the region code. For the US use region 1.

Unable to rip music with Windows Media Player 11 and Creative Labs CD5223E

I had this CD Rom drive in my older PC (200 MHz). I was able to rip audio CD's to MP3 with no problem. I used the program Cool Edit Pro. I would look to see if it's a setting with your sound card. Check to see if there are any settings that select the recording source. There has to be a path set up to record from the CD rom. With cables, you might also try taking the audio out from the sound card and feeding that into the audio in port on the sound card.
