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.

Re: cd drive- computer
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.

Re: cd drive- computer
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.

"40drhol"? If you are re-installing the OS, when you re-install it will ask if you want to format. If the HDD is not the Primary HDD in your computer. a spare HDD, If the HDD is compatible with your computer interface you can install as a slave/second/primary, depending on the interface/pin outs, or load a different OS on it if you wish and have a Dual-Boot. If it's a second drive in your computer, Open Start Menu, Computer, Select the HDD, just right click and format ,select File System.
Unfortunately, this type of virus is actually a virus that is a result of the company that actually has you going to the website to install the anti-virus software, nice huh?
So, there is really only one 100% foolproof way of eliminating this virus and that is by formatting your Hard Drive and reinstalling windows. Now, if you have extremely valuabe information on that drive that you can't afford to lose, then you can perform a small trick. You can install a new Hard Drive in the #1 position of the Seriel Cable or PCMI Position #1 if an older PC. If you are not familiar with the inside of your PC, you'll need to take your PC to a local PC Repair shop and ask them to install a new Hard Drive and OS and pull the data off the old hard drive and have it copied over to the new Hard Drive. Sometimes this may not be possible, but it can't hurt to try. Then the infected drive can be formatted and you'll have 2 drives in your PC, your old one being just a great back up spare drive.
If you don't have such valuable data on the drive, then the process is much simpler. Just reinstall your Windows OS (Windows 7, Vista, XP) whatever version of Windows Software you have. You will need the original Windows OS installation disk if it is an OEM version of Windows, or go and purchase a Full version of Windows and install from the CD.
When you go to install Windows, you will be asked if you wish to format disk prior to installing, make sure you select yes. Then you drive will be formatted, automatically removing the virus, then reinstalling windows on newly formatted Hard Disk.
1st Option: Go to BIOS level and select the CD/DVD device is the first device for boot option and then insert the recovery CD/DVD to format or install OS.
2nd Option: If recovery CD/DVD got curropted and you are having the other OS CD/DVD, then try to load and format or install the OS. Also try to download the recovery image from vendor website.
Open "My computer" windowsand select the CD drive . "Right click" onthe CD drive.You will get apop up windows with the "Eject" option.
If it open that's means the power supply is ok
2. If the DVD drive is not showing on my computer windows or the DVD is not detect the CD/DVD disk
Tofix the problem we need to delete the UpperFilters andLowerFiltersregistry key for more details about the troubleshootingstep please follow the below link. No longer access the CD drive or the DVD drive 3. After follow the above steps if you still face the same problem then need to contact the local hardware vendor.
Try restoring your PC to a date when it last worked, probably corrupt drivers or can also be caused by installing or uninstalling software or your Anti-Virus or Internet Security program
start --> All Programs --> Accessories --> System Tools --> System Restore
Click Restore my computer to an earlier dat
Choose a sutable date and then on the right click a restore point
and leave to restore
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.
It is possible that your hard drive is a SATA and therefore not readily readable by 98, XP but surprised not even by Vista. In any case, since you would still prefer to run XP (due to other software compatibility issues), pls press F6 when prompted by the XP installer. Additionally, you would need to have ready in a floppy the appropriate SATA drivers for your motherboard. They maybe downloaded from the motherboard manufacturer's website or possibly in the installer/driver CD that came with the PC.
Other than the above, it is also possible that you may have some issues with the availability of XP drivers for the other devices for that computer specially if it is branded.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
