    try to run the cd on another system. if the computer recognizes that there's a cd in the drive, that may mean that your DVD Drive may be going bad.

    Usually DVD Drives dont fail all at once.

    it happens gradually.

    1st it stops playing some dvds, then it stops playing dvds altogether

Every time I need to do a back up, I'm told to insert blank disc, then I'm told "Disc needs formatting" but the formatting always fails, why?


Go to Start-->Control Panel-->Backup & Restore

Check Backup Destination. it should be CD Drive here. If it is CD Drive, then it will ask for inserting "Bannk Cd". I suggest you to insert new Bank CD/DVD to avoid formatting message. Also, if data is huge, it can not be write on CD/DVD.

I would suggest you to buy any external USB hardrive and set it as a BACKUP Path.

I have purchased PrintMaster Gold version 18 three times and returned two of them. My computer is operating on Windows XP service pack 2. My computer does not seem to find any data on the install disk....


You might have a problem with your CD/DVD drive. Try inserting the CD in another computer. If the files are shown, replace your CD/DVD drive or just add another CD drive to an empty bay of your computer.

Can I foramt Vista Partitions using xp cd?


Yes, Insert the Dell XP disc, and when your computer first stars, in the right hand corner there should be setup and boot devices. Choose boot devices and run off the disc. After that, there will be an option to Format All your drives, (even some you might not know about :P). From there you can install XP onto your laptop.

Hard drive driver problem


Hi,

It is possible that your hard drive is a SATA and therefore not readily readable by 98, XP but surprised not even by Vista. In any case, since you would still prefer to run XP (due to other software compatibility issues), pls press F6 when prompted by the XP installer. Additionally, you would need to have ready in a floppy the appropriate SATA drivers for your motherboard. They maybe downloaded from the motherboard manufacturer's website or possibly in the installer/driver CD that came with the PC.

Other than the above, it is also possible that you may have some issues with the availability of XP drivers for the other devices for that computer specially if it is branded.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Vista crash


Sounds like a piece of the laptop's hardware has died. Best bet would be to contact the place where you purchased it from or take it back to them. If it is a hardware failure then it will be under warranty and they should replace the faulty piece of hardware or give you another laptop that is the same as this one.

 

Hopefully this won't be a recurring thing for you or your daughter as it can be a time consuming effort to get it replaced or fixed all the time.

Bought NEW MAXTOR ONETOUCH III (No software included???)


If you look at the site carefully you will see a small asterisk near the bottom that says * Windows2000/XP compatible. This seems to apply to several of the available downloads.
