    Dear Gurus,

    I thank you all for advice.

    My problem no.2 is solved when I used my registry fix program.

    I am installed with zone alarm firewall, AVG antivirus programe also.

    But I did not get the solution of problem no.1 which is that my computer is unable to read my drive E (CD Rom ).

    Can you all give the proper method to eliminate this problem ?

    Thanks and regards.

A good free Firewall is " Zone-Alarm" and another free anti-spyware programme which I have used for a few years with free updates is Ad-Aware SE from lavasoft and as previous poster said AVG anti-virus is an excellent free programme again with free updates.

Look Win98 is unsecure there might be sypware in your system, that is why yahoo does not allow you to log in, usually the files downloaded by Browsers will be stored in the temporary internet file folder. when you clean up your cookies this folder also is cleared thus the sypware is removed. then only yahoo lets you to log in. Install a antisypware software.

Another point, for good security, you need a firewall + Anti-Virus+ Anti-Sypware.

My Advise Upgrade to WinXP SP2, AVG- Antivirus/ Antispyware Free Edition.
Will keep your system clean from security threats.

    As for problem no 1, if you are planning to upgrade to winxp sp2. it will be automatically solved. Other wise reinstall the chipset driver from the motherboard driver cd. and restart your sys that will take care of the cd rom.

Rom dos not red cd


First check to see if your CD-ROM drive is detected in My Computer.
If it is detected, it could be that your CD-ROM drive lens is dirty. You can clean it using a CD lens cleaner available on the market. The more risky one is opening your CD-ROM drive and clean the lens using a cotton damp in a little alcohol, it works for me.

Dell D600 cd rom replacement instructions


There should be a screw on the bottom holding the cd rom in place. Unscrew the screw and then with one end of a paper clip put it in the small hole on the front of the cd rom and the door should open. Now go ahead and pull the cd-rom out.

Now you can go ahead and put the new cd-rom in place and put the screw in and then turn on the laptop and let it boot up into windows and windows might redetect it. Go into my computer and you should see your cd-rom in there.

SAMSUNG CD-ROM SH 152>> Detection Error


Dear Sheila

After connecting it to the motherboard, switch on the pc, then go to properties of "my computer" then choose "Hardware" then choose device manager and over here u will come to know weather ur CD rom has been detected or not, if it has a question mark then it means u have to install drivers for it, but if ur using Win XP, i am sure it shd detect automatically and need not ask for drivers. Hoping a good rating from u....!!!

Thankyou

If this happens with all your CDs and everytime, I would suggest you should replace your CD Rom Drive with a new one. After use of some years CD Rom Drives have such problems. Otherwise a software might locking your drive. you should find a tool which unlocks the drive and then press the eject button.
