I have a toshiba a105 laptop with ati x1250 mobility graphics. This is a revival project, and it doesn't currently have a disc drive installed. I use an external drive for install purposes. I have ordered a drive, but its on back order. I have been reading up on this and everyone has been pointing to drivers, but I havent updates my drivers in a long time and this just started in the past week.

Service Control Manager >> this defines a currently running service or a service that is attempting to run but cannot get stared.. simply hold CTRL + ALT and PRESS DEL the taskmager will popup and then click prosesses,, all these are services..

general user identification of the service

EventID Qualifiers="49152">7026</EventID
the event or situation it is trapping or handling,

Data Name="param1">cdrom - parameter 1 = cd rom

So basically they are saying its your cd driver, or your cd rom driver...

To fix this you need to scan your registery for errors using a registery repait tool such as tune up utilities..

if that dont work you will need to format and reinstall

How to stop Windows 10 from automatically restarting after idle for around 5-15 minutes.

The kernel power event ID 41 error occurs when the computer is shut down, or it restarts unexpectedly. When a computer that is running Windows starts, a check is performed to determine whether the computer was shut down cleanly. If the computer was not shut down cleanly, a Kernel Power Event 41 message is generated.
Before we proceed with the troubleshooting steps, please answer the questions given below.
a)Do you remember making any changes prior to this issue?
b)Did you check if all the drivers are up to date?
Let us follow the methods given below.
Method 1: Run System maintenance troubleshooter.
Follow these steps:
a) Press Windows key + W on the keyboard
b) Type Troubleshooter then click on Settings under the Search field
c) In Settings click on Find and Fix Problems
d) Click on System and security
e) Click System maintenance follow the prompts from there.
Method 2: Try booting the computer in safe mode and perform a clean boot.
Step 1: Perform Safe Mode
Click the link and follow the steps "Windows Startup Settings (including safe mode)"
Check if you face the same issue in safe mode. If the issue doesn't persists in safe mode, the place the computer in clean boot and check.
Step 2: Perform Clean Boot.
To help troubleshoot error messages and other issues, you can start Windows 8 by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This kind of startup is known as a "clean boot." A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.
Important: Reset the computer to start as usual.
Note: After you have finished troubleshooting, follow these steps to boot to normal startup.
a) Press the 'Windows + R' key on the keyboard.
b) In the 'Run' windows type 'MSCONFIG' and click 'Ok'.
c) On the 'General' tab, click the 'Normal Startup' option, and then click 'OK'.
d) When you are prompted to restart the computer, click 'Restart'.
If the issue persists, I would suggest you to perform a system restore and check if it helps.
Method 3: Perform a system restore.
Refer to the link given below and follow the instructions for system restore.
How to restore, refresh, or reset your PC
Also refer to the article given below.
Windows Kernel event ID 41 error "The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first" in Windows 8, Windows Server 2012, Windows 7, or Windows Server 2008 R2

hope this helps

What does starting in safe mode acconplish?

Booting in safe mode simply launches the operating system with minimal services enabled, usually no network availability, and a limited ability of usage, safe mode is used when diagnosing possible threats or for emergncy data access. In the event that the computer has stopped you from gaining access to it. A computer should never forcefully start in safe mode, it is an option usually selected on a black and white screen, start normally or start in safe mode, or start in safe mode with network. Hope this explains is a little better

When using the right click on mouse or pad window explorer stopsand has to restarted closing the session

Normally explorer restarts due to over heating of cpu or if program is not closed properly. Some other reasons could be bad memory but in your case i am doubtful whether it is due to bad memory or hardware failure. You could try installing mouse drivers again. Instead check the event viewer for problem details. Start, Control Panel, administrative Tools, and Event Viewer. When researching the meaning of the error, information regarding Event ID, Source and Description
are important.
Post error to microsoft.
A tip for posting copies of Error Reports! Run Event Viewer and double
click on the error you want to copy. In the window, which appears is a
button resembling two pages. Click the button and close Event
Viewer.Now start your message (email) and do a paste into the body of
the message.

See if it works.....Good luck

I get error rtl100.bpl what must i do

i am techbuddies from fixya group i would like to try and solve your issue .
please try to follow these steps

You probably read web pages written in a language that displays Right To Left
(hence rtl100) There are several reasons why that file might corrupt, an
add-on of some kind being the main suspect. Go to start/run, and type:

iexplore -extoff

to see it that stops the error.
If not, try refreshing all system files with :

sfc /scannow

if is doesnot work then try this

Are any devices malfunctioning? Select Start, All Programs, Accessories,
System Tools, System Information. Open Components under System Summary
and click on Problem Devices. Is anything listed there?

Are there any yellow question marks in Device Manager? Right click on
the My Computer icon on your Desktop and select Properties,
Hardware,Device Manager. If yes what is the Device Error code?

Does anything turn up in the Event Viewer Logs?

You can access Event Viewer by selecting Start, Control Panel,
Administrative Tools, and Event Viewer. When researching the meaning
of the error, information regarding Event ID, Source and Description
are important.

click on the error you want to copy. In the window, which appears is a

All of a sudden vista home has started to blue screen with no predictability. I have run sys restore and also checked my antivirus but no solution what else can I do.

Well as soon as we can figure out the error,We can start fixing it,So,First do you have any usb devices(other than a mouse or key board), any memory cards,or even a disk in the cd/dvd drive? if so,Remove them and try to start in safe mode by tapping the F8 key while the computer is being started,If you get a boot option menu,Choose safe mode with networking and let see if we can find the error log.To do this,Click start>Control panel>Administrative tool>Event viewer,On the right screen,select the arrow beside Windows logs and it will open a menu,On that menu select,Application,When the list finishes loading,Go to the right hand side menu and choose save events as,Give it the file name Events and click the browse folders button at the bottom and select desktop as the save to location,then click save,When the pop up about language shows up,Check to show English,click ok.
Go back into the events viewer and do the same as above with the system under the same windows log as before and save to the desktop as before and give it the name Events2 .

Then email both to and I will see what we can figure out.

My windows suddenly shows "beginning memory dump"

It sounds like you might having a problem with RAM. A couple of questions for you:
1. Are you running any particular type of application before getting the blue screen?
2. Have you recently upgraded your PC with more RAM?
3. Also how much RAM do you have? You need at least a minimum of 1 gig of RAM to efficiently run Vista...even though this might not be causing the problem, but it does help overall performance/

Another thing that you can try is looking in the Event Viewer and then tell me any error messages that you see. To get to the event viewer...Click on Start --> Run --> type in eventvwr.msc and press enter. Once in the event viewer look under System and see if there are any error's that occurred around the time the blue screen came up.

Just in case that its RAM...try this downloading this tool (memtest )to diagnose any issues with RAM -->

Can not open control panel in window vista

Have you installed anything else on the system? Also, you might check Event
Viewer assuming that will open. Open the Start Menu, type Event Viewer in
the search box, when you see the security prompt, click continue and it
should open.

If that doesn't resolve it type CMD in Start Search on the Start Menu. When
you see CMD at the top of the Start Menu, right click, select "Run As
Administrator." When the command prompt opens, type

"sfc /scannow" without the quotes and let it run.

If that fails to resolve it, check manufacturer websites to make sure all
your device drivers are up to date, the same with all of your software, make
sure the apps are Vista compatible and that you've installed any updates.
Also, make sure you have no malware or any viruses. If all is fine you may
need to do a repair, boot from the Vista DVD and choose the repair option at
the setup screen.
