need more information: some one would have to write a program that would do that function. if you want to remove the drive you should be able to go into the control panel and go into program and features right click on drivers than select remove. now it your programs does not have the drivers listed in the system. you should not have to remove those drivers if and when you need to install the right driver, once you put the new drivers into the computer the old drivers are stored on the director xxxxx.old file than you can remove it but there is no reason to do all that work.

************** IMPORTANT AND DO FIRST****************

if you are concerned about those drivers you can go into the control panel open file called
device manager and go down to lans, or other device, right click and uninstall it or disable it your choice.

Mss32.dll missing on my pc


There are several different ways that mss32.dll errors can show up on your computer. Here are some of the more common ways that you might see mss32.dll errors:
  • "Mss32.dll Not Found"

  • "This application failed to start because mss32.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem."

  • "Cannot find [PATH]\mss32.dll"

  • "The file mss32.dll is missing."

  • "Cannot start [APPLICATION]. A required component is missing: mss32.dll. Please install [APPLICATION] again."

Mss32.dll error messages might appear while using or installing certain programs, when Windows starts or shuts down, or maybe even during a Windows installation.
The context of the mss32.dll error is an important piece of information that will be helpful while solving the problem.
Cause of Mss32.dll Errors Mss32.dll errors are caused by situations that lead to the removal or corruption of the mss32.dll file.
In some cases, mss32.dll errors could indicate a registry problem, a virus or malware issue or even a hardware failure.
How to Fix Mss32.dll Errors Important: Do not download mss32.dll from a "DLL download" website. There are many reasons why downloading a DLL file is a bad idea. If you need a copy of mss32.dll, it's best to obtain it from its original, legitimate source. Note: Start Windows in Safe Mode to complete any of the following steps if you're unable to access Windows normally due to the mss32.dll error.
  1. Restore mss32.dll from the Recycle Bin: The easiest possible cause of a "missing" mss32.dll file is that you've mistakenly deleted it.
    If you suspect that you've accidentally deleted mss32.dll but you've already emptied the Recycle Bin, you may be able to recover mss32.dll with a free file recovery program.
    Important:Recovering a deleted copy of mss32.dll with a file recovery program is a smart idea only if you're confident you've deleted the file yourself and that it was working properly before you did that.
  2. Run a virus/malware scan of your entire system: Some mss32.dll errors could be related to a virus or other malware infection on your computer that has damaged the DLL file. It's even possible that the mss32.dll error you're seeing is related to a hostile program that's masquerading as the file.
  3. Use System Restore to undo recent system changes: If you suspect that the mss32.dll error was caused by a change made to an important file or configuration, a System Restore could solve the problem.
  4. Reinstall the program that uses the mss32.dll file: If the mss32.dll DLL error occurs when you use a particular program, reinstalling the program should replace the file.
    Important: Try your best to complete this step. Reinstalling the program that provides the mss32.dll file, if possible, is a likely solution to this DLL error.
  5. Update the drivers for hardware devices that might be related to mss32.dll. If, for example, you're receiving a "The file mss32.dll is missing" error when you play a 3D video game, try updating the drivers for your video card.
    Note: The mss32.dll file may or may not be related to video cards - this was just an example. The key here is to pay very close attention to the context of the error and troubleshoot accordingly.
  6. Roll back a driver to a previously installed version: if mss32.dll errors began after updating a particular hardware device's driver.
  7. Run the sfc /scannow System File Checker command: to replace a missing or corrupt copy of the mss32.dll file. If this DLL file is provided my Microsoft, the System File Checker tool should restore it.
  8. Install any available Windows updates: Many service packs and other patches replace or update some of the hundreds of Microsoft distributed DLL files on your computer. The mss32.dll file could be included in one of those updates.
  9. Test your memory and then test your hard drive: I've left the majority of hardware troubleshooting to the last step, but your computer's memory and hard drive are easy to test and are the most likely components that might cause mss32.dll errors as they fail.
    Note: If the hardware fails any of your tests, replace the memory or replace the hard drive as soon as possible.
  10. Repair your installation of Windows: If the individual mss32.dll file troubleshooting advice above is unsuccessful, performing a startup repair or repair installation should restore all Windows DLL files to their working versions.
  11. Use a free registry cleaner to repair mss32.dll related issues in the registry. A free registry cleaner program may be able to help by removing invalid mss32.dll registry entries that might be causing the DLL error.
    Important: I rarely recommend the use of registry cleaners. I've included the option here as a "last resort" attempt before the destructive step coming up next.
  12. Perform a clean installation of Windows: A clean install of Windows will erase everything from thehard driveand install a fresh copy of Windows. If none of the steps above correct the mss32.dll error, this should be your next course of action.
    Important: All the information on your hard drive will be erased during a clean install. Make sure you've made the best attempt possible to fix the mss32.dll error using a troubleshooting step prior to this one.
  13. Troubleshoot for a hardware problem if any mss32.dll errors persist. After a clean install of Windows, your DLL problem can only be hardware related.
Applies To The mss32.dll error message could apply to any program or system that might utilize the file on any of Microsoft's operating systems including Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP, and Windows 2000.

Still Having Mss32.dll Issues? Let a community of computer support enthusiasts help out! Post the details of your mss32.dll issue in the PC Support Forum. Be sure to let us know the exact mss32.dll error message that you're seeing and what steps, if any, you've already taken to fix the problem.

The Dr. Watson debugger program logs all information related to failed processes to the Drwtsn32.log file. In addition to this, the debugger program can be configured to create memory dump files related to the failed processes. You can refer these dump files to analyze the reason behind a process failure.
Perform the following steps to configure Dr. Watson as the default debugger program to record user-mode program errors:

  1. Open Start menu, select Run, type Drwtsn32.exe -I and then press Enter. This command sets Dr. Watson as the default debugger.
  2. Next, run the Drwtsn32.exe command.
  3. In the Dr. Watson for Windows dialog box, select the following check boxes:
    • Append to Existing Log File
    • Visual Notification
    • Create Crash Dump File
  4. Now, when your computer restarts after the STOP 0xC000021A error is generated, run the Dr. Watson command.
  5. Here, view the paths to the Dr. Watson and User.dmp logs.

I cannot write my videos to a cd it does not support my nero


hi there,
it sounds like your dvd/cd drive does not support the cd you have. If you have burned videos using this cd before then its most likely a problem with nero, try updating the program if there is one available. If that fails, try a different cd and see if it will work then. And if it's not working with a different cd then it's definately either your cd/dvd drive or nero itself that the problem is with. Try using a different program like IMGBURN(free download) just to see if you can burn with that program instead. If it's still not working either your cd/dvd drive does not support the type of cd you have or your cd/dvd drive burner has failed in which case you will need to replace the drive or purchase an external cd/dvd drive. Hope this helps and best of luck with it. If you need more assistance reply back to me and i'll be happy to help. :)

The motehrboard bios doesnt boot from usb to install windows, how can i update the bios to boot from the usb?


Insert your USB jump drive into a USB port on the computer containing the bootable program. Copy the information to your jump drive, then insert the drive into a USB port on the computer you wish to boot the program from.

Power on the computer. When the computer begins displaying its startup information, hit the key indicated on screen to enter the computer's BIOS (the "F1" or "Delete" keys are commonly used to access the BIOS).

Browse through the menu options in the BIOS to locate the computer's startup and booting options to locate the "CMOS" menu, which is where you'll have the option to set which devices will boot at startup.

Browse though the list of bootable option---they'll be ordered as "First Boot Device," "Second Boot Device" and so on. Set the USB jump drive as the first bootable option---your BIOS may refer to the drive as a "USB Removable Floppy Disk."

Save and exit the BIOS. When your computer restarts, your program will boot first before your operating system.

Bios chip in intel d945gccr, how can i identify the bios chip?


Identifying some BIOS chips can be quite difficult. Essentially, there are two effective and relatively simple ways to help achieving this profiling task
  1. Using a software program such as Everest or SiSoft Sandra
  • EVEREST Home Edition is a free system diagnostics, system information and benchmarking solution for home PC users, based on the award-winning EVEREST Technology.

    It offers the world's most accurate system information and diagnostics capabilities, including online features, memory benchmarks, hardware monitoring, and low-level hardware information.
    Accurate low-level information about motherboard, CPU and BIOS, including chipset details, DMI enumeration, AGP configuration information, SPD memory modules list, DRAM timing information and CPU instruction set support.

2. identify the motherboard model and BIOS version in the manual that came with the computer.
If no manual is available, right-click "Computer" and click the "Properties" option from the menu to find the computer model and number. Use that information to identify the motherboard by going to the manufacturer's website and locating the system specifications for that computer model.

Do you have antivirus? It could be malware or spyware slowing you down. Theres a really good Malware program out there to suppliment your antivirus with called Malwarebytes located here:

http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10804572.html

If the venting is blocked your computer can be damaged by the heat that the system will build up.
Assuming you have maintained the system correctly you may be having a hard drive problem. This is simple to check by downloading a program from Western Digital called Data lifeguard diagnostics for Windows. Located Here:

http://support.wdc.com/product/download.asp?groupid=603&sid=3&lang=en

Follow the instructions on the page. If your drive is bad, you can clone it to another drive before your old one fails. Just get another drive and replace the failing one. You should ba able to just clone the old drive onto the new one with software provided by the drive manufacturer.
Also, you mentioned you have 4 gigs of ram. Do you have a 64 bit version of Windows? If you have a 32 bit version you should consider taking it to max of 3 gigs. In a 32 bit verson 4 gigs may show but Windows doesnt handle it very well. 3.5 gigs is supposed to be max for the 32 bit Windows if I remember correctly.

Let me know if this helps. If not I may have another suggestion or 2...
