Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook
When I double click on the C drive I get an error message "Windows cannot find 'media.exe'.
I can open the C drive when I right click and then "open".
How can I get it to open with a double click again??
It sounds like some of your system files are no longer in tact. First off I would find out what caused this problem.
To start with you need to run a full ant-virus scan on your computer with whichever anti-virus software you use. If your software finds issues that you cannot fix, then you need to take in your computer to a professional ASAP to have the infection removed (if you are very comfortable with this procedure you can do this your self).
Once you have ensured that all viral infections are removed (keep in mind there is a possibility that you never had an infection), move on to repairing the issue.
I will assume you have windows XP as your laptop ships with, if not please respond and I'll give you different directions.
Run a check disk on your computer. Open "My Computer" then right-click on your C drive and click on "Properties". This will open up a new window, click on the "Tools" tab and then click the "Check Now" button under the Error-checking section. This opens a new window labeled "Check Disk Local Disk" check both of the boxes in this window instructing the program to automatically fix system errors and to scan for and recover bad sectors, then click the "Start" button. This will likely bring up a new prompt saying that this operation can't be performed while the drive is mounted, and asks if it can run at the boot of your computer. Pres the "Yes" button, and then restart your computer.
Check Disk will run automatically as your computer boots, and will repair all of the problems with your system files.
You will no longer receive the 'media.exe' error.
please rate my solution
