You tube videos start and stop


The videos need some time to buffer/load.

This is indicated by the pale red line that is usually in front of the play bar which is the darker red bar.

Pause the video for around a minute for the video to buffer.
Then push play button.

You may need to set the detail down to 240p to increase the speed at which it loads.

Any cd i put in ...the driver seems to start then stops...used to put disc in and pics would come up or music would play now ...nothing,,,,just seems to start then quits...


  • If it's reading the CD but just not opening music and pictures automatically then you need to go to My Computer, right click on your CD drive, Properties, and go to the Auto Play tab. From the drop down you can select music or pictures and then what action you want the computer to take when you insert a CD with those files on it. Or you can select it to prompt you each time you enter a music or picture CD about what action to take.

  • If it can't read the CD at all, then it sounds like the laser lens needs cleaned on the CD-ROM. Once you put the cd in the player it trys to read it and sees nothing and stops and then does it a few more times but still sees nothing so it quits. First thing to try is open the CD tray and blow compressed air into it and see if it works after that. If that doesn't work then go buy a CD-ROM cleaning kit from an electronics store like Radio Shack or Best Buy. Another way to clean the laser is more manually. Get a Q-Tip and rubbing alcohol. Take the CD-ROM out of the bay and take the outside cover off. Once that's open you should see a laser that looks like THIS. Clean the little glass lens with one end of the Q-Tip with rubbing alcohol on it and then with the other end of the Q-Tip you want to dry the lens off. Hope that helps.

I get a "beep" in the middle of gameplay on my HP D330


Hi, it,s possible that the game your running is crashing up, due to lack of system memory. this usually happens if for instance:- the graphics card or Ram can,t cope with the amount of charactors or pixels, needed to be displayed on the screen. check the games minimum system requirements are met for that specific game. also check that Direct X drivers are correctly installed.

Lost cd code for need for speed most wanted


You could search sites like youserials for a code for your game. However you will then still not be able to play online. Using these codes IS illegal if you cannot prove you own the game, so be careful doing this!

My drive plays DVD's but will not read CD-ROM ? it did at one time is this a setting error


DVD and CD require different spec lasers (DVD requires 1.3nm compared to 2.1nm for CD)

It seems like your CD laser is broken, although your DVD laser still works. Replace the drive, it's not too expensive.

Doesnt read CD's


try cleaning your cd rom by the lens cleaner, just run/play this in order to clean the lens. prior from that, try to load some other cd's which you think it play then you need to clean your cd rom. just in case it won't play the cd 's which previously running the cd rom is suspected to be defective and needs to be changed. examone your cd is there some scratches? if there are but with deep scratches then your cd is might also be defective
