Hi there, i purchased a second laptop for my kids to play with, the computer is running window xp. when i placed a cd or dvd into the computer the computer doesnt detect it. nothing happens.


Try the following steps:

right click on my computer, select properties
click hardware tab, then click device manager

in the device manager, click + sign next to cd-dvd rom devices.
you will see cd-dvd driver listed here.
right click on it and select un-install
driver will be gone

now open the following website and run fixit software

I'm having problems with the audio for my hp dv6929wm laptop. Windows does not detect and audio device and everytime i go to update the drivers the installation stops because it can't detect and audio...


If you've ensured the correct services are running and the correct drivers are installed/attempted to be installed, I'd say there's a good chance you're experiencing a hardware problem. The easiest way to test that is w/ a Linux Live CD or to perform a factory OS reinstallation. If you don't want to restore the the computer, try booting a computer up w/ a Ubuntu install cd, and try running the OS live (w/out reformatting/installing the OS), and test the sound. I recommend Ubuntu because the driver support is pretty good. With that said, if it doesn't have the correct sound driver for your hardware, this solution will not help us out, so at that point, I'd recommend reinstalling Windows and see if your sound works. If it doesn't work after the OS reinstallation it's a hardware problem.

No sound on our computer


Hello,

For the Dell Dimension 4550 there's a drivers list, see next page:
http://support.euro.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?os=WW1&catid=-1&dateid=-1&impid=-1&osl=EN&typeid=-1&formatid=-1&servicetag=&SystemID=DIM_PNT_P4_4550&hidos=NAA&hidlang=en&TabIndex=

The drivers list is for the Operating System XP.
Detect the hardware, have a look in the hardware manager.
Soundcard and cd/dvd drive need a firmware driver to get it functional.
Download the matching driver for your hardware.

When not knowing what driver to install, first download all audio and
cd/dvd drivers to a location on the computer, e.g. C:\DRIVERS .
After the download, update drivers in the hardware manager with the listing in the DRIVERS map.

When needing more help, just add a comment in this thread.

I think the hard drive crashed.


Dude, check when you start your PC if the fan spin, if not, the problem isn't your HDD could be your motherboard or your power supply.

Laptop trouble


There is a problem with your DVD drive, then. I think it is unable to detect because there is dirt on the delicate little lens or some other problem.

Clean the lens with a cheaply available lens cleaning disc a special anti-static cloth made for these purposes.

Or see if the PC itself detects the drive. If it doesn't, restore the system to the time when it was all okay. Use System Restore.

If nothing works, show it to a doctor, and maybe you have to change it.

My DVD Rom is not detected by the system


When it comes to installing a new driver you have to make sure is supported by your PC, that said it may be that you need an installation CD, if the driver does not come whit one try to download it from the website of the manufacturer. another solution can be that your driver may be conflicting with another driver, this means that your problem driver needs to be a master or slave check on the installation manual that came with the driver.
