Oddlly enough, you don't need drivers for the CD/DVD drives. They aren't even recognized unless you have a non-microsoft burning program. Those programs are worth updating. Find out what burning software you have-- I recommend downloading Belarc Advisor, a free program which not only tells you everything in your computer, with model numbers for hardware and all of your software (with their unique codes), but will also inform you if you are missing any needed Windows updates. Once you know what you have, if it came with the computer, you have to seek an upload at the computer manufacturer's website, as it may be a special program not related to the burning software purchased from the software manufacturer---go to their website for upgrades. Check device manager in control panel under hardware to see if you have a problem with anything (a big yellow check)

No sound on my computer


Hi,
Please be informed that any hardware device needs a driver software to run within a PC, and the driver software depends on the Hardware Make/Model and the Operating System software you are using in your PC to operate it.You will get the Driver software of any hardware within the CD provided with the hardware part at the time of its purchase. The hardware may be an entire PC,Laptop,VGA card, sound card, LAN card,webcam,printers etc.


If you do not have the CD or misplaced it somewhere then you need to download the driver software to get going. Thus you need to know all the above information to get the exact software your PC needs. As you have not mentioned the Operating System you are using, i am unable to give you the direct download link.
However you can download the same by visiting the 'software downloads' section of the website of the hardware brand you have purchased. You just need to Google the name of the brand and visit their website and search for the download section.


If you feel that, my answers have helped you getting solution to your problems then please give a vote.

How can I reinstall Windows on a recently bought refurbished Toshiba?


Hello Fixya User,

My name is Carlo.

Enable for you to install windows to your computer. You need to have the following discs:
1. Operating System Disc (example: Windows 7, Windows XP, etc.)
2. Drivers and Utilities from Toshiba (it came with your computer)
3. Other Discs (eg. Anti Virus - Office software , etc.)

Note: The first two dvd/cd are the basic materials that you need in installing your computer.

Here are the ways on how to install your windows:

1. Turn on your computer.
2. Insert the Operating System Installation Disc into the dvd/cd drive of your computer.
3. Turn off your computer and turn it on again.
4. Press the space bar once you see "Press any key to boot to cd" promt on the screen. Usually, the screen is black. You should be quick in pressing the space bar so that the computer can start the installation process.
5. The computer will download the software. It will take few minutes.
6. Once it's done. Just follow the on screen instructions.
7. Format the drive c:/
8. Click on next. Then follow the on-screen instructions..
9. You wait for it to finish the installation. And the computer will restart. At this time, don't press the space bar once you see the prompt. Just let your computer boot to windows.
10. It will then take you to the set up screen. You just have to supply it with the information. Click next and then you'll see the desktop where you can see the start button in the left bottom corner of the screen.
11. Take out the operating system cd from your cd drive. And, put in the Drivers and Utilities from Toshiba.
12. Follow the on screen instructions. The computer will restart.
13. Once everything's installed. You can install some other programs that you need in your computer.
14. Now your computer is ready.

I hope this helps. Don't forget to leave your comments. Please rate my answer. Your comment and rating could help me improve the quality of my answers here in fixya.

How do I install, view and listen to a CD-R I have. I am using a Dell Computer and the Disc is a Sony CD-R, 700 MB


You have to install a CD or DVD player or a CD Writer or DVD Writer if the one that came with the machine isn't working. Windows will recognize the new hardware and should install the drivers automatically.
Once the hardware is installed, just slip your CD-R into the drive and Windows should ask what you want to do with it, i.e. if it's music Mplayer should play it.

I am reformatting the hard disk of my desktop computer and I used to have altered some changes in the BIOS. Now when I restarted the computer then inserted the OS into the CD-ROM player but nothing...


you could noot have lost the BIOS unless you did so with a DOS disk inserted into the A drive with the wrong BIOS update. try buying a new $2 2032 battery (looks like a quarter on your mobo) at STAPLES scan number 41333 54210 which is a medical lithium batter duracell DL2032B2.
replace batter which will reset BIOS to factory fail safe defaults. you should get a post telling you to reset new date F1 key to resume, then hit DELETE to enter BIOS or whatever key to enter your BIOS> reset new date, time, and reboot with OS in the CD drive. must be a BOOTABLE CD
(ISO image file). you did not say what OS you had. if XP it does not have SATA drivers, so if your hard drive is SATA you have to go to the MOBO website on another computer, download the SATA and RAID drivers to floppy for A drive.
If no A drive you have to SLIPSTREAM the drivers into an ISO BOOTABLE disk with NLITE. exe

" Error loading operating system "


This is not an easy one. But to start,when you install an OS, you needed to delete the drive when you where at the install screen of windows,which you did not post which one. Then after you install an OS
you need to install the chiposet drivers for the motherboard so that it can work. Then the graph drivers,sound drivers,lan drivers. If you do not install the drivers for the hardware that is on the Mobo
windows will try and use generic drivers which are junk.

So you are going to download the drivers for all the things I said. Now when you try and install and you are at the screen that ask to install windows, look down and pick delete the partition than pick which ever letter it ask for and pick yes, now you will see to create new partition, just hit enter because
at the box on the bottom of screen has the full size of the hard drive in it, unless you need to make another partition. Now make sure that C- new raw -- is highlighted and hit enter to install windows to your hard drive, now you get- format NTFS , do not format quick.

This is the best way to install a OS on a clean hard drive. Hope you get it installed ok and all the drivers.

How to upgrade win 95 to winxp without removing files installed


A computer running Windows 95 WILL NOT RUN Windows XP in most cases. Post all of your hardware details and we can explore that further.

Most programs that run on Windows 95 WILL NOT RUN under Windows XP easily. There are some compatibility things you can try for each one, but most simply will crash, and some will seem to work for a while then crash at inopportune moments.

What you should do is buy an newer computer with Windows XP, remove your current hard drive, and put your current hard drive as a second drive in the new computer. You will have access to your documents, but your programs will not run.

You didn't recover your CD burning program adequately. Oddlly enough, you don't need drivers for the CD/DVD drives. They aren't even recognized unless you have a non-microsoft burning program. Those programs are worth updating. Find out what burning software you have-- I recommend downloading Belarc Advisor, a free program which not only tells you everything in your computer, with model numbers for hardware and all of your software (with their unique codes), but will also inform you if you are missing any needed Windows updates. Once you know what you have, if it came with the computer, you have to seek an upload at the computer manufacturer's website, as it may be a special program not related to the burning software purchased from the software manufacturer---go to their website for upgrades. Check device manager in control panel under hardware to see if you have a problem with anything (a big yellow check).
Then go to your audio manager on control panel, and set it up for whatever speaker configuration you have. I have realtec audio manager. This step is a must for configuring—you choose whether your laptop will use its own speaks or use your external speakers—you have to turn off the internal speakers and turn on the external.. you might find that your internal speakers are switched off.
