Question about Computers & Internet

Hi, I have a Toshiba-Samsung Optical drive in a brand new Dell Vostro 1700 laptop that appears to not work. Click the drive icon and there are a few grinding noises but the PC continues to clock. Dell checked drivers and re-loaded firmware, but no improvement. Do you concur that the hardware is the problem or could it be something they overlooked?

If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link and follow my instructions to identify the fault and possible fix :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3598095-faulty_laptop_lcd_screen

I have a Dell VOSTRO 1700 running VISTA, purchased March 2008 (out of warranty). I used the Toshiba DVD Drive only a few times. Since Oct 2009, the laptop unit (softwarewise) does not ''see'' the Drive....


Hi,

This is becoming a common problem. Let's see if we can save you $150!!

If your CD-ROM or DVD-ROM Drive Appears To Be Missing then you will need to manually edit your registry.

Follow the instruction below.

Click Start Menu. In the Search box, type regedit, and then click OK. A Registry Editor window will open up.

1. In Registry Editor, expand My Computer, and then expand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.
2. Expand SYSTEM, and then expand CurrentControlSet.
3. Expand Control, and then expand Class.
4. Under Class, click {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}.
5. In the right pane (topic area), click UpperFilters.

Note An UpperFilters.bak registry entry may also appear. To delete the UpperFilters registry entry, you must click UpperFilters and not UpperFilters.bak.
6. On the Edit menu, click Delete.
7. When you receive the following message, click Yes to confirm the deletion of the UpperFilters registry entry:
Are you sure you want to delete this value?
The UpperFilters registry entry is removed from the {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} registry subkey.

Note Do not exit Registry Editor. You must have this program for the next step.
Step 3: Delete the LowerFilters registry entry
1. In Registry Editor, expand My Computer, and then expand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.
2. Expand SYSTEM, and then expand CurrentControlSet.
3. Expand Control, and then expand Class.
4. Under Class, click {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}.
5. In the right pane (topic area), click LowerFilters.

Note An LowerFilters.bak registry entry may also appear. To delete the LowerFilters registry entry, you must click LowerFilters and not LowerFilters.bak.
6. On the Edit menu, click Delete.
7. When you receive the following message, click Yes to confirm the deletion of the LowerFilters registry entry:
Are you sure you want to delete this value?
The LowerFilters registry entry is removed from the {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} registry subkey.
8. Exit Registry Editor.
Step 4: Restart the computer.


This should resolve the problem and there is no easy fix unless you factory restore or reinstall the operating system.

Good luck and please let me know if there is anymore advice that you need.

My cd drive will not read a cd


Hi there,

Here's a good start. Go to the link below and click on the big green button that says RUN NOW. It's a Microsoft Autofix Application that's helped restart many an optical drive for me.

Hope it works for you.

Dell vostro 1700 NETIO.SYS 0xc0000098


This is probably a problem with either the media (bad disk, or picky optical drive) or with some hardware. In the first case, I would try to reinstall first, and if that fails consider using a different drive or disk (if possible). As it points to the Netio.sys file, in the second scenario it may be related to a network device (i.e., ethernet). My suggestion in that case would be to remove all devices possible from the computer, and to disable on-board LAN/audio in BIOS to see if that helps.

Bought used dell vostro 1700, wasnt told about the bios password.


Hi Jonnymac93,
the fastest way to clear a password would be to remove the cmos / bios battery. The manual for the Vostro 1700 can be found at the following link;
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/vos1700/en/OM/pdf/TT565A01MR.pdf
If you prefer the manual in htm, click this next link & choose htm format listed on the site;
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/vos1700/en/index.htm
Go to page 182 & 183 for instructions. The manual call this, Removing the Coin-Cell Battery.

Also here is notebooks driver site for the 1700;
