Question about Lenovo ThinkPad X200 Tablet Laptop

1 Answer

Autorun for disc installations doesn't work. When I run either an install disk or a multi-media type disc, they don't auto run. Is there a simple switch that I am missing or is this something totally different. The model is a Lenovo 200X. I thank you for your help.

I can put a Movie dvd into D: drive it works,. I put a pc registry mechanic security/ cleaning cd into d: Drive it doesnt work, whats the problem?


Do you mean that the security disk doesn't autorun or that you can't access it from the Computer (My Computer) windows Explorer?

If it is the former, Microsoft has disabled Autorun for anything that has .exe files by default. (It was done during a Windows update quite a while ago.) Media (movies and CDs) discs are generally allowed to AutoPlay since they rarely carry malicious software.

Double left-click on the Computer (My Computer) icon (or press Start > Computer). Then double-click on the optical drive icon. Once you open the optical drive folder, look for an Install program (.msi) or an executable program (.exe). Double-click to run the program.

To change the Autorun settings, click Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound. Then click on Autoplay and change the setting for Software and Games. If you do this, it may get reset later. (This is for Windows 7; it will be similar in other versions of Windows.)

If you can't access the cleaning CD from Windows Explorer, I'd suggest you try the disc on another computer and check it for damage (scratches or an incorrect .iso burn).

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with some additional details if you need more assistance.

How to disable Autoplay of Audio CDs and USB Drives in windows


0b05cdf.png

All recent versions of widows contain features called AutoPlay and AutoRun. AutoPlay lets you choose which program to use to start different kinds of media, such as music CDs, or CDs or DVDs containing photos. For example, the first time you try to play a music CD, AutoPlay asks which media player you want to use, if you have more than one installed on your computer. You can change AutoPlay settings for each media type.Autorun is the technology used to start many programs or enhanced content (such as videos on a music CD) automatically when you insert a CD or USB drives into your computer. This is different from AutoPlay, but the result are the same, when inserted, the CD or USB drive starts automatically, using a particular program. Autorun is incorporated into the media types that use it, and you can't modify it.
When a disc is inserted or a drive is connected to your computer, Windows looks in the root directory of the disc or drive for a file named autorun.inf. If found, Windows executes the instructions in that file. ( whether it be start the music or install the virus.)
For example, an autorun.inf file on a CD might contain a line that reads open=setup.exe. This tells your computer to launch a setup program as soon as the CD is inserted into the drive

Removable USB/thumb drives use the Autorun feature to load files when the drives are plugged into the USB port. Malware exploits the Autorun feature to spread from thumb drive to PC. Disable the autorun feature to prevent malware from spreading.


For XP users:

1.Click Start and then click Run. Type gpedit.msc and click OK. The Group Policy window will open.

85d4641.png

2. In the left pane, double-click Administrative TemplatesIn the right pane, double-click System, scroll down the list and double-click Turn Off Autoplay

3.In the Turn Off Autoplay Properties window, select Enabled. From the dropdown next to Turn Off Autoplay on, select All drives and then click OK.

4.Exit Group Policy by selecting File, then choosing Exit from the menu.

How do i fix windows update error 1722


Hi,
According to the error code 1722, it is actually a windows installer error. What we need to do is to fix the Windows Installer.
Try the following fix below...
(Please note that before trying any of the solutions below, you must be logged into your computer as an Administrator.)
  • Check whether Windows Installer engine is functioning.

  1. Click Start > Accessories > Command Prompt.

  2. At the command prompt, type MSIExec and press Enter. MSI refers to the Windows Installer.

  3. In the MSI engine is working, you should see no error messages. However, if you see an error message, note down the error. Search for it in a search engine such as Google to find troubleshooting solutions.

  4. Now try to install or uninstall the program again. If the problem persists, go to the next fix.

  • Check that Windows Installer service is not disabled.

  1. Click Start and type service.msc in the Search box and press Enter.

  2. The Services window is opened. Right-click on 'Windows Installer' service, then click 'Start'. The service needs to start without any errors.

  3. Now try to install or uninstall your program again. If it persists, try the next fix.

  • Check for latest version of Windows Installer.

  1. Click Start > Accessories > Command Prompt.

  2. Once the command prompt window opens up, type MSIExec and press Enter. If MSI engine is working, you should see no error messages, and it should open a separate dialog box, which shows the MSI version.

  3. If the installer version doesn't show as version 4.5, download the latest version athttp://support.microsoft.com/kb/942288/

  4. Now try to install or reinstall your program again. If it still persists, try the next fix.

  • Reregister the installer engine.

  1. Click Start > Accessories > Command Prompt.

  2. At the command prompt, first type MSIExec / unregister, then press Enter and type MSIExec / regserver

  3. Now try to install or reinstall your program again.

  • Clean your CD or DVD media.

  1. If you are trying to install the program from a CD or DVD media, use a CD or DVD disc cleaning kit.

  2. You can also gently wipe the silver side of the disc with a soft, lint-free cotton cloth. Make sure you do not use paper or other rough cloth as this can scratch the plastic or leave streaks that can damage the disk. Make sure you wipe the disk from the center outward and not circular motion.

  3. If you use a damp cloth or commercial disk cleaning solution, wipe the disc thoroughly before inserting into the drive.

  • Copy installation files to your computer.

  1. If you are using a removable or external media to install the program, copy the installation files from there to your computer's hard drive and then run the installation file from that location. It is usually called autorun.exe or setup.exe. If you are not sure, just check the Readme file in the setup folder about how to start the installation.

  2. Unless there is no .exe file present in the setup folder, we do not recommend that you run .msi files directly.

  • Terminating other programs running on your computer.

  1. Click Start and type msconfig in the Search box.

  2. One the 'General' tab, click 'Selective startup', then click to clear the 'Load startup items' checkbox.

  3. Click 'Services' tab, click 'Hide all Microsoft services', and then click 'Disable all'.

  4. Click OK, then click Restart.

  5. After the computer restarts, try to run your program installation.

  6. Once you have finished troubleshooting the problem, restart your computer again.

  7. Click Start, type msconfig in the Search box. Click on the 'General' tab, click 'Normal startup', click OK, then click Restart.

    Hope this helps!

Drive not responding


Windows uses autorun or autoplay to detect removable discs such as cds and dvds.

Some cd and dvdroms, especially software installers, have an autorun.inf file which forces the disc to start.

Firstly Autoplay. Your media player may have been set to disable this function so your discs do not automatically run. Or you may have several suitable media players installed, but you haven't set one as your default player. Make sure you choose a default player, then set it to automatically run when a disc is inserted.

Secondly, you should be able to manually run the disc by going to My Computer then left click the dvd or cd drive. You may be prompted to select a player or program to run the disc.

Thirdly, "autorun" may have been disabled in registry.
You can check this by looking at the following key in registry.
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\NoDriveAutoRun
This will be followed by Bit 0 for drive A and Bit 1 for drive B etc. IF YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND THIS, DO NOT TOUCH REGISTRY!!!

Fourthly, as kykeaton says, you may have a faulty drive.






autorun may have been deliberately disabled in registry.

Stupid thing


It sounds like you have autorun disabled on your machine. No matter. Insert the disc, click on my computer & you should see the name of the install disc in the drive you put it into. Click on it & look for a file called autorun or one that ends ".exe". It should start installing from there.

You can use any media player (iTunes, Windows Media Player, Winamp) to organise playlists. But you should be able to at least try out your software & see how it measures up.

How do install a intalation dick manually, as i cant get get to run on auto


Er, do you mean installation disk!?

Sounds like you have autorun disabled. So put the disk in, find it on my computer & double click it. You should see a list of files. Look for something called "autorun" or the application (will end in ".exe") and you should be up & running.

You can enable autorun for future use, but it is not as easy a job as you might expect. Assuming you are running Windows, there is some help here:

But do NOT do this unless you are sure what you are doing. Otherwise you might end up having to reinstall Windows, which is even more of a pain.
