Cd drive- computer

Few days ago my computer used to get hanked whenever i connect it to the internet. For this reason my computer vendor formatted my computer & the problem has gone. But now my cd drive (combo) is giving serious problems. When i try to copy songs etc from cd, dvd it takes huge time to copy them. This time has considerably increased, it used to take much less time earlier. Also during playing songs from cds its breaking up and the sound isn't coming continuously. Can you tell me the reason.

Is the vendor install all the drivers of your system? if all the drivers of your system was installed maybe how about the driver of your CD. ? maybe you should install it also so that everything is fine. however, if you did these thing and thesame happen in your system. then please try your CD rom to the other computer or in your friend computer to test if it working.
If the same happen in your friend computer, so obviously the cd rom is damage, and if working fine there, something wrong with the installation of your operating system.

No more solution other than these if so all of those are not the solution, i should maybe recommend that you replace your CD rom. hope this help.

Could be alot of things. You could have too many programs running in the background.

To fix this press ctrl alt and delete at the same time go to task manager and end any running task that it's being used. While you're at it you can go to START. click on RUN and type in MSCONFIG, go to the STARTUP tab and uncheck any program you dont' want to start when your computer boots up. Then try and play your music and see if that helps.

If that doesn't help try defragging your computer.

If the problem still persists go to START, RUN, type in the box CMD. When the black dos screen pops up type in CHKDSK /R it will ask you to run this after reboot hit hit Y for yes. Then restart this process can take a couple hours so do it before you're going to go to bed, or you're going to work etc.

If it doesnt' help after this then you may have some hardware problems. After this point i would suspect your harddrive may be dieing, or you may not have enough ram to properly decode the music files you're trying to play. Take off the side case and make sure your ram is properly inserted into the ram slots. The side tabs that hold the ram in place should not be sticking out they should be straight up in the air.

And if none of these fix the problem you may want to think about an upgrade if the computer is quiet old (4-5 years old). As technology progresses programs utilize more memory bandwidth and processor power to properly function you may just be too slow.

Can't do backups because dvd-cd can't find a blank disk. Who can I format?

Drives like some brands/types of DVD, but will never work with some others. Whenever I buy DVDs, I always stick with exactly what worked before with that computer.

Also, if you have accidentally written on the DVDs you could spend days trying to use them to no avail. I always pull the fifth one in the stack, just in case the first few were put back after being accidentally written to.

Look up your DVD in device manager so you know what media it takes. Buy some new (slightly different (brand/type) from the ones you are trying now.

My HP Computer is giving me many problems. I got it from a retnal store and is was in brand new condition, when it first got the computer there were no problems. Then a few months ago it started acting up....

download malwarebytes on another computer and burn the installer to cd. start up your computer and insert the cd. install malwarebytes from the cd and update. remove the cd, reboot and go into safe mode. run malwarebytes and allow it to remove whatever it finds. from your description and just to be on the safe side I would run it twice. reboot into regular mode and your computer should be running much better. run malwarebytes at least once a week, in regular mode is fine unless the computer is really bad again, in which case run in safe mode.
