Question about HP Compaq nx6110 PC Laptop

1780 disk 0 failure message

My laptop is about 1.5 yr old and the optical drive no longer works. I have not fixed it nor do I even try to use it as it causes the system to crash. Now the computer stops intermittently and I get an error message : 1780 disk 0 failure or 1781 disk 1 failure. I have to go into to setup and try different options to get it to start again. Once it's running its ok, it's only if I leave it for a while and it's in standby with a program running that it reboots to the error message when I start it up again.
It is a HDD problem or optical drive problem. HP website says optical drive other people say HDD - help!

My videos keep skipping on my Inspiron laptop. How can I fix it? Easy instructions, please.


1) Remove ALL power to the laptop. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery.

2) Lay a towel on a table, lay the laptop upside down on it.

3) Look to the side with the optical drive. (DVD drive)
Remove the single Philips screw which holds the optical drive in the laptop.
Use the tool to push on the notch where the screw was, and push the optical drive out.

Replace the optical drive.

My Acer Aspire 5742 developed a screaming high pitched buzz. This happens even when it is not connected to the net, or even when there is no dongle attached. This has developed since we used a Virgin...


High pitch buzz is usually caused by the system fan but can also be caused by the optical drive and the harddrive. check if the system is getting hot. try cleaning the vents of the system. verify that there is no disc inside the optical drive. try booting to safemode and check if the system will still caused the noise. also run a hardware diagnostic to check the fan and harddrive.

I have compaq nx6310, i had issues with the os.once you touch a button it starts open other buttons and pages automatically. i tried restoring the system to earlier dates and the issue reduced. later on it...


Hi das4real! These are the things to consider.
  • Operating system disk - Try to test your Installation CD to other computer. If it doesn't work then you need to replace the disk
  • Optical Drive (CD/DVD Drive) - If Installation disk works then try to clean your Optical drive lens as it may be having a hard time reading the disk. Your Optical drive is working since you're able to format and able to start the installation. Cleaning the drive lens may do the trick.
  • Hard Drive - If Installation CD and Optical drive is clean. Then the last thing you need is to replace the Hard Drive. You Hard Drive might need replacement due to some bad sectors and the installation couldn't write anything on the drive that causes to freeze during installation.
I hope this helps you.

The HD on my Toshiba A135-S4827 crashed. I bought


I see a couple of possibilities here.
  1. The replacement drive is not the same size as the original and the wizard is looking for a drive that size.
  2. There is also a possibility that the error is causes by bad RAM (0A-0543-0000 is a read write error) if you have more than one RAM module try the wizard with one module at a time, see if error is isolated to one or the other module or slot
  3. The Restore CD is dirty/scratched of has a flaw in the original write
  4. The optical drive is defective or dirty
So things you can try:
  1. Clean the media you are trying to restore from.
  2. Clean the optical drive with a drive cleaning CD.
  3. Swap Ram as suggested, replace defective if necessary (OS install is about most RAM intensive process you run on a system)
  4. Try a manual Windows install from a Windows CD not a image restore cd
  5. Try a drive the same size as the original

Hi My ASUS Eeepc 1000HE is one week old..WHile typing in hotmail..it starts falling behind the keystrokes and just gets slower & slower to the point of sitting and waiting for up to a minute for it to...


this problem might slow down if you have too many program installed in your EeePC, i have my own EeePC then I noticed if i put too many programs too dizzy to use it, maybe you don't have put any partition on your hard drive, repartition it. And then put only necessary programs to use. And also use Tuneup Utilities to remove and repair some unnecessary files inside your system. Good luck!

In my laptop dvd is not dedecting. Can u give me the solution.


You can make some changes in Registry, but before we do that , when you getinto REgistry Windows>Click on File and click on import and save the files some where, you are done with that :

Perform this :
n order to delete upper and lower filters you're going to have to edit the registry. The usual cautions apply. If the registry is not edited properly your whole system can crash.

1) Close all open programs
2) Click on Start, Run, and type REGEDIT and press Enter
3) Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders

* HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
* SYSTEM
* CurrentControlSet
* Control
* Class
* {4D36E965-E325-11CE-
BFC1-08002BE10318} - delete upper filters and lower filters which ever you have. It should work out.

If not you reseat the optical drive and check.

If not you have a good known Drive, you can try swapping the drive with the known good unit>If the drive does not work on diff unit>Its an issue with the Optical drive and you can replace the drive.

Laptop Crashes Only when Plugged In!


That is not a lot of space for the computer to operate, especially depending on if windows is managing a page file for extra memory, which it does by default. Delete as much data as possible, maybe get more than 10GB of free space. Also, try running the laptop by itself and see how long it will run with just the desktop showing. If it will run for a considerable longer amount of time that way, I would say that the free space is the issue......keep me posted...
