DVD drive not recognizing audio-visual Cds except audios only

My gut says that the software used to view the vidoes needs to be updated to a version that supports the latest video codecs. My guess is that you are trying to view .mp4 files but the player can only play the audio portion.

If you are using Windows Media Player, then either get the newest version or try an alternate video player like VideoLan VLC or Media Player Classic - Home Cinema which support more file formats.

Files in Desktop and User Account

The size of you user account has some effect on the speed of your computer during startup. You can view your user account size from the User Profiles frame mentioned above. Click on the Settings button in the User Profiles frame and you will see a list of users and the size of each of the users.

My own practice is to avoid storing files such as documents and pictures in my user account folders. Even though the user account has come pre-created with different folders for different types of documents such as the musics, pictures, bookmark favorites, documents and saved games, but I have dealt with problems that resulted from corrupted user profiles and the only way to recover the files is to connect the hard drive to another working machine. Well, that is way too troublesome for some people. In addition, some viruses attack through user profiles. Desktop files are stored in User Profiles. The more icons and files stored in the desktop, the slower startup you get. Thus, it will be wise to store the files to another drive or partition which will secure your files and also speed up your system slightly.

New HDD Problem. What I see is strike F1 to retry boot, F2 for setup utility. How do I solve this problem?. What I have is 160Gb hard disk

Re: Dell Strike F1 to retry boot, F2 for Setup utility error Thanks for the reply Craig. Yes the hard drive was removed for a new one and the EIDE cables were changed 3 times to make sure that I didnt have any defective ones. The jumper settings were left on cable select (old hard drive AND new).


I hate problems I can't solve so I used my other computer that I KNOW works. I installed the NEW hard drive in my other computer and installed Windows XP Professional just to see if I purchased a bad hard drive. It detected it, formated it, and I test installed it. Less than an hour later, Windows XP was running on it NO PROBLEM. I removed the hard drive and installed it BACK IN THE PROBLEM COMPUTER. Still got the error message but I did the Alt-Tab-F to let it detect the IDE Configuration again. I also went into the BIOS settings and configured it in there as well.

WOO HOO! It detected it and it went to the Windows XP slash screen. Then I got the Blue Screen of Death and I was NEVER SO HAPPY TO SEE IT!!!!! That meant that the drive was finally friggin being recognized by the system BIOS/Motherboard. If any of you didn't know, you typically get a BSoD if you don't do a reapir install of XP or a clean install if you have a hard drive that had a prior install from another computer.

I then started putting back the components one by one (2nd stick of RAM, CD Drive, Floppy Drive, PCI Cards, etc.) and configured the BIOS for each of it. IT ultimately ended up working and I got to the XP Desktop.

FYI: I honestly think that the BIOS "Hard Locked" and was stuck in that crazy loop. It probably happened when the first drive died while it was trying to boot. I took a chance and tried to get a fully formatted hard disk into it to break the cycle and luckily it worked!

If any of you techs ever get into this situation, try the procedures that I did and it may help you.

Trying too dual boot xp pro on toshiba tecra m5. conflict image of original xp pro, in slim select bay hdd. Need help with settings so as the same op system can be used on both drives.Any help would be...

in order to dual boot something.... you need to partition the hard disk... if there's only 1... you need a program that will create another partition from drive C...
for example the size of your Hard disk(drive C) is 160gb
you need a program that will split 160gb into 2 it should come out and you will have now two drives (C & D) with a size of 80gb each...(It depends on how large you want the other drives to have)...

the program is called Partition Magic 8.0 if you want that program.. i can send it to you... just contact me in my yahoo messenger...

now it's time to install the Windows XP in each drive then you'll have a dual boot... or you can install Windows Vista on the other drive... so therefore you'll have Windows Xp and Windows Vista in one PC...

hope it will help you... tnx

TV Tuner

Open your program files on your old HDD, Find your Tv Tuner drivers in there, Now you can either drag them onto your new hard drive or copy them into the Program files on your new Hard drive. Make sure you have them in you new one and then unhook you old HDD and Open TV tuner Files should self install. Or you could also, If you know the name of the tv tuner model and series go to Add New hardware Icon in your control panel. Do it from there when it wants you to install from a specific place choose that option then the name of the device should be there under the network option, find your device and install it from that location I sure Hope that Helps you out
