Question about DVD/Blu-ray Drives

1 Answer

Get computer running!

I purchased an 800 Meg system, with Windows 98SE, so I could have Office 97. I was going to format another 8 Meg hard drive for a system back-up. Problem is I did not unhook the power to the units hard drive and lost the whole system. Unit has an Intel Desktop Board, # D815EEA2/D815EPA2. The ethernet or the color are not working, can you tell me what to do to fix this situation? Thank-you Jim.

If it's just ethernet and (I assume from colour, you mean the graphics/video card) you will need to install drivers for those devices.

Win 98 is a mongrel of an operating system, which doesn't take much to corrupt it. It's possible you may have to reformat the HD and reinstall it.

You may still require individual drivers for the devices.

If they are all onboard the MB, you may be able to download them from the intel website.

In my desktop computer the LG CD/DVD writer/reader is showing empty though the CD is filled with data..hat could be the reason, i tried by re-installing the drivers but no success...


Not knowing the operating system, In windows 7 and 8 sometimes it forgets the cd format. Then you need to go to the device manager and remove the drive and let windows re-detect it.

Operating system not found


First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

Hi there, you have to go BIOS set up first. From there you have to select the first bootable drive is your CD/DVD rom in place of your HDD drive. Then save the setting and restart the PC npormal way.You will see the PC reading your disk & ask for press any key to continue for booting. I home its helpful for you. Thanks.

Bootmgr error


Hi,
theres several stages involving formating a disk.
this error however, appears to be discribing a boot-manager program.
Try booting with Windows in the actually DVD Drive.
If this does,nt work, re-format the hard-drive. or obtain a setup disk from your computers manufacturer.
i.e Compaq.
Mike @ Compurepair.

Micro sd card


To read from a Micro SD card you will need a card reader that can read MicroSD cards. If your computer doesn't have one, you can go to Office Depot and buy one. They should have a few different models. If you have the adapters for your MicroSD card to convert it to a regular SD card, they have an $8 reader on sale right now. If not, they have a $35 card reader that will read almost every memory card format.

Otherwise, you'll have to go through your digital camera's software to read it.
