Hard Drive failure


First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

DVD drive won't read original microsoft office installation disk - it will read other disks. Also the microsoft disk can be read from DVD drives in other computers.


Hi,
First are you CERTAIN the computer you are using the dvd in is capeable of reading dvd discs? If so I'd recomend purchasing a cd/dvd cleaner (available online and in most audio shops) and a CD Lense cleaner.
This should cure your problrm, unless it's one of the first signs of the laser wearing out, in which case a replacement drive is required

My DVD Wirter does not read dvd files


Not compatible or not working well with windows 7?
(making a program work with windows 7)

Maybe, It doesn't work because the driver/application you installed is for other versions of operating system. I am also using windows 7 like you so don't you worry, You can still use your old installer/driver from other versions of operating systems. Just remember that before installing any program in a windows 7 Operating System Computer, Use "troubleshoot compatibility". Right Click the Icon of your program installer/application first, then choose "troubleshoot compatibility". This will allow you to choose on what type operating system your program will run. Just reply back if it still doesn't work.:D rate and vote for me:)) julyallan01_52.jpg

Bootmgr error


Hi,
theres several stages involving formating a disk.
this error however, appears to be discribing a boot-manager program.
Try booting with Windows in the actually DVD Drive.
If this does,nt work, re-format the hard-drive. or obtain a setup disk from your computers manufacturer.
i.e Compaq.
