Restore to factory settings


If you received a CD/DVD with your computer that says "Operating System Disc" or something similar, you can put that in the drive and run the reinstall sequence.

If you did not get a disc like that with your computer or you lost it, you can probably call the manufacturer. Otherwise you can get a new version of Windows from wherever you would like and install it. The installation process typically clears everything out.

Toshiba Dvd / r/rw TS H552D/GAAH is tryin but wont do anything


Since it's saying no disk in drive, it is recognizing the device, just not the disk. You're probably up for a drive replacement. Try booting off your restore disk just to verify that it's not a virus. Don't restore or you'll wipe out everything. You could try compressed air to clean any optical sensors. If that doesn't work, replacement is in order.

If it's within warranty, it's covered. Otherwise, verify what type of drive it takes (SATA or PATA) and it's a drop-in fit. The bezel will be different, however.

Since you've already removed the drive, you're aware of disassemby.

Antivirus System PRO virus.


Hello and thank you for using Fixya!

Purchase a flash drive (a cdrom will not work for this) and back-up your data on the thumb drive. I would recommend an 8 gig as to fit all your files.

Place the flash drive in the new computer and scan it immediately with the Norton.

By the way, there is one great software that will save the old computer and it only cost 30 dollars. I use it to kill this Rogue on all my customers computers and it takes me 10 minutes to get rid of it. Definetly worth the purchase!

My dimension 4600c wont always read discs


sounds as though you need a new CD drive, the optics in your drive are not working correctly.

CD drives are available for cheap at any computer store or consumer electronics store.

very easy to replace, 4 screws hold it in, and plug in the cables to the new drive from the old one. please dont forget to rate!

Game problem


Try it in a friends computer to see if it works there. If not, then there is a problem with the disc. I'd take the game back to where you bought it.
