YOU MAY HAVE ACCIDENTALLY HIT THE FN+F9,F10,F11 OR F12 KEYS SIMULTANEOUSLY. TRY HOLDING DOWN THE FN KEY (NEXT TO THE CTRL KEY) AND LOOK FOR THE SYMBOL UNDER YOUR F9, F10 ETC... KEYS AND THAT SHOULD SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM.

Dvd cd rom [ code 10 ] does not work


The Code 10 error code is generated when Device Manager has insufficient information or the error that is bubbled up by the device drivers is not recognized by Device Manager. Additionally, this error may occur when one of the drivers that the device needs does not start. If many drivers are being used by a particular device, it can be difficult to determine the one that failed.

The Code 10 error resembles the following: This device cannot start. (Code 10) The most common resolution is to update the drivers that are associated with the failing device. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. In the device's Properties dialog box, click the Driver tab.
  2. Click Update Driver to start the Hardware Update Wizard.
  3. Follow the instructions to update the driver.
Note You may be prompted to provide the path of the driver. Windows may have the driver built-in, or the driver files may still be installed from the last time that you set up the device. If you are asked for the driver and you do not have it, you can try to download the latest driver from the hardware vendor's Web site. uparrow.gifBack to the top Typical Code 10 error issuesThe Code 10 error pertains mainly to hardware and device driver issues or to compatibility issues between hardware drivers and additional software that is installed in Windows. Therefore, we recommend that you troubleshoot these issues by focusing on device drivers, on device configuration issues, and on hardware compatibility issues.

When I insert a disk nothing happens, it makes really loud noises asif its about to take off. This carrys on and my computer does not recognise there has been a disk inserted.


The driver for your CD-ROM needs to be UPDATED. click start, then control panel, click performance and maintenance, then click system, click the hardware tab, then click DEVICE MANAGER.under the CD/DVD ROM DRIVES, your CD-ROM should be listed. It may have a "?" mark or "!" to show the driver is out of date. If so, then right click on the device, click the "driver" tab, and click update driver. If the driver is updated, but the CD-ROM is still not functioning, follow the same steps, however; when you right click the device and enter the properties, instead of entering driver, click the "PROPERTIES TAB: and UN-CHECK the box in the DIGITAL CD PLAYBACK. If that does not work, then search online for a driver that is compatable with your windows system,

Hi when i install my audio drivers.. it says no media device found.. please help me.

Do the following steps to rectify this problem :
Step 1 .Reset the default BIOS settings:
You can try resetting the sound default in the BIOS. Here's how:
  1. Turn the PC on. When the Windows logo first appears, press the F1 key or Dell key repeatedly until you see the BIOS setup screen appear.
  2. Press the F5 key ( Setup defaults). In some other PCs depending on the manufacturer the BIOS at start-up will have one of the default options that have names such as - ‘Load Fail-Safe Defaults’ and ‘Load Optimised Defaults’.You will have to choose ‘Load Optimised Defaults’
  3. Select Yes or OK, then press the Enter key on your keyboard.
  4. Press the F10 key, then select Yes or OK to save the default settings. Press Enter.
  5. Exit the BIOS and restart your system checking for sound.
( For most PC's entering the BIOS will be the same but if it differs for your system, consult the operating manual for instructions on entering the BIOS.)

If this doesn’t work go to step 2

Step 2 . Configuring on-board sound in the BIOS:

Some computers come with sound on the motherboard (on-board), and some computers use a sound card. The on-board sound setting in the BIOS has to be set according to your particular sound configuration. Perform the following steps to correctly configure the sound in the BIOS:

Look at the back of your computer and use one of the following three items to determine the proper sound configuration and sound setting:
If the plugs for the speakers and microphones are located next to the parallel, serial, or USB ports, then the computer has on-board sound. The on-board sound setting in the BIOS should be Enabled. If the plugs for the speakers and microphone are located away from the other ports and sit in an area by themselves, the computer has a soundcard. The on-board sound setting (if there is one) in the BIOS should be Disabled. If the computer has sound plugs in both locations, a
soundcard has been added to the computer that already contains on-board sound. The on-board sound setting should be Disabled. To enter the BIOS, turn on the computer and when the first screen appears, press the F1 key /Dell key repeatedly until the BIOS Setup screen opens. Use the LEFT and RIGHT ARROW keys to select the Advanced tab. Press the DOWN ARROW key to select Onboard Audio Options and press ENTER. If Onboard Audio Options is not available, select I/O Device Configuration and press ENTER. If Audio Codec is listed, select it and press ENTER. Select either Enabled or Disabled depending on your configuration and press ENTER. Press the F10 key and then press ENTER to save and exit Start Windows and check for sound. If there is still no sound, continue to the next Step.

Step 3 . Reload the current sound driver

To do this, follow these steps
1.Click Start, type Device Manager in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.
2.In the Device Manager dialog box, expand Sound, video, and game controllers.
3.Locate the audio device that was included with the computer.
4.Right-click the device, and then click Properties.
5.Click the Driver tab.
6.Click Uninstall.
7.Make sure that the Delete the Driver Software for this device check box is cleared, and then click OK.
8.In the Device Manager dialog box, click the Action menu, and then click Scan for hardware changes.
You should see a message that a hardware device is being installed. Additionally, the uninstalled audio device is now present in Device Manager.
9.Close the Device Manager dialog box, and then determine whether you can hear sound.

If your computer came with a motherboard CD, the audio drivers should be on the disk.

If you don’t have the CD go to your computer manufactures web page to search for updated sound driver software. Read the instructions on the download pages carefully
before installing.

If there are no updated sound drivers available, use Microsoft's Windows Update feature. Connect to the Internet and try the following items until Windows Update opens:

1.Click Start, and then click Windows Update (if it is listed).
2.Click Start, click Settings, and then click Windows Update (if it is listed).
3.Click Start, click All Programs, and then click Windows Update (if it is listed).
4.Go to Microsoft's Web site and click Windows Update from the Downloads menu.

Check if the sound works now….if it still doesn’t work then most likely the sound card might be faulty.

Pioneer dvd-rw dvr-k17a


Are these drives you have fitted yourself, or been added as after market drives?
If so you have run in to the odd way Toshiba set their optical drives as master or slave, although this is generally and IDE #1 error.
To fix this you need to solder pin 45 and 47 together.
47 is the key pin here, as it controls whether the drive is in SLAVE or MASTER mode.
grounded, the drive is in MASTER, open, it is in SLAVE.
pin 45 is simply a grounding pin.
So you'll need to open up the drive, turn it over, and put a small blob of solder on the two pins next to each other - 45 and 47.

If they are original drives or used to work then uninstall the drives and the IDE controllers in Device manager and reboot, letting windows redetect and install the hardware. Also try reinstalling the motherboard drivers available from Toshiba's support site.

Synaptics touchpad not working


Have you looked at the Device Manager to see if there's a problem with the touchpad?

Start -> Control Panel -> System -> click on Hardware tab -> click on Device Manager button. Do you see anything that indicates a problem with the touchpad?

Also, you might want to check the BIOS to see that the touchpad is still enabled. I doubt that this setting would have changed, but it's worth checking. When you boot the computer you should see a message that says something like: "To enter setup press XXX" where XXX is the delete key or some other key. Once you're in the BIOS poke around to see if you can find the settings for the Touchpad. Different manufacturers use different BIOS' so I cannot tell you exactly where to look.

Good luck.
