Power your laptop off, wait 10 seconds then power it back on, soon as you see that the screen is on hit the eject button on the drive remove the disc and throw it away it is either corrupt or scratched.

My daughter dropped her laptop now it wont turn on and keeps saying theres a hard drive prpoblem


Well, either the hard drive inside has come loose from it connector, in which case opening the access door on the back and re-seating the connector will solve your problem, OR, the impact from the dropping has resulting in hard drive crash in which case you need a new hard drive.

Laptop wont start up just says a disc read error has occured, press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart but when I do this I just keep getting the same message


Two possibilities are involved. 1) The hare drive is not responding correctly. This could result from a loose cable (needs to be connected to the motherboard and the drive) or a damaged drive (either from damage to the disc or lost boot information).
2) A non-boot disc is being accessed in the boot sequence. This could be a CD/DVD in the optical drive, a floppy disc in that drive (older laptops) or a USB connected drive (either a thumb drive or a regular external disc).

The second issue is easy to solve, disconnect/remove any other media. Then try to boot. Alternatively, on most Windows machines, you can press F12 to choose the boot sequence. However, you need to press the button between the POST (power on self test) and the loading of Windows. For me, this can take several attempts.

For the first, the options depend on your skill/willingness to open the computer. One option is to use a Live CD (a bootable disc) to see the status of the hard drive. Use the F12 sequence if needed to boot from the disc. (The live cd could be a Windows Recovery/Install disc.)

To save files from the disc, you can either use a UNIX Live CD and an other drive (an external optical R/W drive or hard drive) or remove the disc completely and connect it to another computer. For this second option, use an IDE/SATA/USB dongle, a laptop hard drive enclosure or hard drive dock. The dock will work with a SATA drive; disc enclosures need to be selected to match the drive type (IDE or SATA). When you do the disc removal, you will see if the cables are loose. Be careful with static while opening the computer.

Then replace the drive with a new one, reformat and reinstall the OS or use the recovery disc to attempt to fix the boot problem.

I hope this helps.

My dvd drive will not open some disks that i does opens b4 i stated using an external drive


Hello,

this means the lens (laser) of your DVD drive is weak ad that's why it will not open those discs that it open before.

You need to get another drive to solve the problem.

Good luck.

Disc tray problem!


It needs a new DVD drive I would say. I fix them and it's a really common problem with them.

I buy mine at http://parts.consolerepairguy.com they run about $30 each.

I run a repair business and that place has best prices aside from Hong Kong which I don't trust.

For all Windows (XP, Vista, 7):

Click the FixIt button, when prompted select RUN.
When the tool is done, reboot.

If the problem is with Windows, this will solve it for sure. Otherwise your drive may be dead or the power disconnected.

Wrong disc??how can i solve it??


Try uninstalling the orignal and expansion pack. If you have any other expansion packs uninstall them aswell. Install it all from scratch. If the problem doesnt subside, check your System Requirements, it may be that your computer doesnt support the data from Sims2.
