Windows XP:::

One thing you could do is this: Right click my computer and select "manage" then a window will open. Click on "Disk managemant". To the right you should see various disk drives listed and partitions. If you see one that is "black" and that tells you "unknown volume" or something similiar, right click on it and either select initialize the drive, or "partition" the drive. NB OR::: If you can see a partition that is unknown to you that is equal to the new disk drive that you have purchased, it might be that the drive letter assigned to it is conficting with one that is already installed on your system. In that case, right click on that partition or drive in the computer management app, in the disk management section and select, "change drive letter or path" to specify a UNIQUE drive letter for your new disk drive.

Insert a disk. Wait for the disk-spinning to stop.
Open "My Computer".
Double-click the icon for the CD/DVD drive, to see if Windows can read anything from the disk.

Unit failed to boot and observe the followng; - No start-up display - No CMOS boot-up display - Hard disk clicking sound and OS won't start


Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the AC power supply.
Remove the battery.
Remove the disk-drive.
Reconnect the AC power supply.
Turn the computer on.
Put any "data" disk into the CD-drive.
Does it display the CMOS boot-up display?
Can you hear the PC try to spin that "data" CD, i.e., trying to "boot" from it?
If it works "better" without the disk-drive attached, the disk-drive is the problem.

When itry to install my laptop samsung r60 plus


I checked the manufacturer's web-site:

http://www.samsung.com/ca/support/download/supportDownMain.do

and did not find an 'R60' model of laptop.

Access that web-site, and enter the correct model-number,
and download the device-driver for your hardware.

Or, if it is a brand-new laptop, take it back to the retail store,
and ask them for assistance -- they took your money, and they should support you.

Hello,

Make sure the BIOS is 'seeing' the drive. Reboot your pc, press F2 as soon as it starts to boot (Or watch your screen and the POST will display which function key to press to enter setup.) If the BIOS is NOT seeing the drive, you may need to a) replace the drivers for the dvd or b) replace the dvd rom itself. (I recommend the drivers first.) Please repost your results and we will continue to monitor your progress.

Good Luck

DVD/RW Recognition Issue


+/- media matters =)

make sure you're using compatible media... some cd/dvd drive will do this spinning and spit out the media they don't recognize. if you're inserting blank cd/dvd, check the lable on the disk if you're using the plus "+" then replace it with a minus "-" then vise versa...

Dear allanholt,
If you are tech. person then you can use a board pin to open the DVD or Cd drive, with the help of boardpin , for this you just have to push the pin a small hole ,which is infron of Drive ,you just put pin on this hole and press it, the tray of your drive will come out side. then you can just put a CD Lans cleaner Disk in to the drive tray and run it.

Otherwise ,incase you are not a Tech. person then my suggestion is , you just contact to the Authorised Service Centre , which is near to your place. they will repair itaccordingly.

SOUND CARD NOT FOUND BY WINDOWS


Go to the ThinkPad Website

Put in the information for your computer and search for an audio driver. It will be a free download. Follow all of the instructions that come with the driver.

I would provide a direct link to the driver, but you did not list the specific Type of Thinkpad R60 that you own. There are many types. Also it may matter if you have XP SP1 or SP2.
