An IO device is an input/output device your disc drive is a input device so either the disc is bad or corrupt or you disc drive is malfunctioning if the later is the problem try updating the device drivers for it.
Check the Windows Device ManagerDevice
Manager is a Windows program that displays hardware devices installed
on your computer that are currently recognized by Windows. If
functioning properly, each piece of hardware has a corresponding entry
in the Device Manager. If a piece of hardware is not listed, then there
is a problem. There can be a variety of reasons, ranging from the
easy-to-fix (such as missing or corrupted device drivers) to the more
serious (such as broken or malfunctioning hardware).If
your drive does not appear in Windows Explorer or there is no response
from the operating system when you insert a disc, then you should check
for an entry in Device Manager. This indicates whether there is a
problem or not, and sets the stage for subsequent troubleshooting
actions.To verify that the optical drive is listed in the Device Manager:
Remove any discs that may be present from the disk drive.
, type device
into the search field, and then select Device Manager
from the list.
In the Device Manager window, expand the DVD/CD-ROM drives
There should be a name listed for each installed drive.If the drive is not listed or the DVD/CD-ROM drives
entry does not exist and you have verified that it is listed in the BIOS
, continue to the next troubleshooting item. reinstall the default device driversDevice
drivers are software processes that allow Windows to use the computers
hardware components. If the device driver fails or becomes corrupted,
then Windows cannot properly communicate with the drive; in fact, it
may not even recognize that the drive is connected at all.
common source of disk drive problems is that the correct device driver
may have been inadvertently replaced with an incompatible one (for
example, a generic driver for optical disk drives mistakenly installed
by a third-party DVD burning program). In most cases, device driver
problems like these can be resolved by reinstalling the default drivers
and then installing any driver updates provided by HP. To reinstall the default device drivers:
, right-click Computer
, and then select Properties
In the System pane, click Device Manager
link. If prompted, allow the computer to access the Device Manager.
In Device Manager, click the plus sign
(in Vista) or the arrow
(in Windows 7) next to the type of driver you want to uninstall and
reinstall (for example., Modems, DVD/CD-ROMs, and so on), unless a minus
sign (-) is already showing.
Right-click each listed driver one at a time and click Uninstall
. When prompted, confirm that you want to uninstall the selected drivers. Do not restart the PC In the Device Manager pane, select any listed device and click the Scan for hardware changes
button (near the top). Windows scans your system for hardware and installs default drivers for anything that requires drivers.
Open Device Manager and verify that your device drivers are listed once again.
After the device drivers have been reinstalled and appear in Device Manager, try running your program again. NOTE:Some
devices may require your computer to restart. Windows will notify you
when restarting is necessary. Save all open files and allow the computer
If reinstalling the default drivers does not correct the problem, continue to the next troubleshooting item.
You will loose all data you have put on the computer. When you turn it on right at the beginning there is a black screen and there are a few f key options.
They will flash up with the option when you turned it on, before windows kicks in. Take a look at the user manual to find out for sure.
Press the correct f key before windows starts up, then go through the menus in setup (it will look all crappy and dos like) and find restore factory settings (or something like that) and click yes.
It's a great feature, and will completely kill any virus or **** problems you have had and couldn't get rid of.
Hope this helps. I would appreciate your feed back as I do this for fun not pay.
About the Disk Error message your machine have. It means that the Storage Device(Hard Disk Drive or HDD) in you machine is about to go bad or its already bad, what I suggest try to back up your data ASAP by removing the HDD of your machine and take it to any Computer Local Center and have them backup you data and they can also tell you if the HDD is already bad that they can't backup your data.
