Question about PC Desktops

4 Answers

Windows cannot recogonize blank disk in drive E. I downloaded an up to date driver and windows cannot burn a disk because no recordable drive could be found. windows also tells me that I do not have a diskdrive capable of burning a CD or DVD. I previously downloaded pictures off my camera and was able to burn them to disk. the disks are not the problem as they work on another computer.

HI

  1. There is a virus circulating that causes this, and very few AV software know about it yet.
  2. It could be that the cable has pulled out of the back of the drive.
  3. try uninstalling the driver and rebooting
  4. try reinstalling your burner software. EG: Roxeo, nero, etc.

    The Virus. is called AntiVirus2008. but it does a lot more bad stuff.

    If you find you have it. run these in order.



    1. mbam-setup.exe

    2. ComboFix

    3. Spybot S&D
    Google them!

The problem is the optical drive it's self. you may need to replace the optical drive if it will not recognize the disk or burn any disk.
or you might be able to find the manufactor of the drive or computer and download some firmware for the drive . if you let me know what the model and make of your computer is i would be ghlad to assist you.

I need to repair vista operating system


Step 1:
The first thig to do is locate the serial key if its not located on your computer you can find in the registry. http://download.cnet.com/%7Bvalue=http://www.download.com/magical-jelly-bean-keyfinder/3000-18487_4-10079600.html The Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder is a freeware utility that retrieves your Product Key (cd key) used to install windows from your registry. It has the options to copy the key to clipboard, save it to a text file, or print it for safekeeping.

Download the Windows Vista startup disk .ISO file. A .ISO file is a "disk image" file, meaning that it is a compressed archive of all the files that would normally be found on a CD contained in one simple file. Microsoft does not provide users with an official Windows Vista startup disk. Because of this, a number of services online provide their own for users free of charge. Download the .ISO (see Below) file to your computer's desktop. http://neosmart.net/blog/2008/download-windows-vista-x64-recovery-disc/ Put a blank DVD in your computer's DVD writer. Open your DVD burning program. As long as your program can burn .ISO files, you can use any software you'd like. Burn the .ISO file to a DVD by selecting the "File" menu, clicking on "Open" and locating the .ISO file from your hard drive. Next, click the "Burn" button in your DVD burning software and the files contained in the .ISO will be burned to the disk. Label your Windows Vista startup disk with a pen or marker and keep it in a place where you won't lose it. If your computer is damaged to the point where you would need a startup disk, you won't be able to use your computer to make one. It is very important that you do not lose this disk.

The windows might be corrupted. You could try editing the windows registry. here are the steps:

In order to delete upper and lower filters you're going to have to edit the registry. The usual cautions apply. If the registry is not edited properly your whole system can crash.

1) Close all open programs
2) Click on Start, Run, and type REGEDIT and press Enter
3) Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders

* HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
* SYSTEM
* CurrentControlSet
* Control
* Class
* {4D36E965-E325-11CE-
BFC1-08002BE10318}

4) This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.

* UpperFilters
* LowerFilters
* UpperFilters.bak
* LowerFilters.bak

5) If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete
6) After deleting the keys, close the Registry Editor
7) Reboot your computer
8) Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.

last option, you could try installing imgburn. here's the download link: http://www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=download

If nothing happens, your dvd drive is bad.

Good Luck,

Ryan

I need to reinstall ethernet driver on my desktop but it will not connect to the internet.


If this problem is in direct relation to the heading,
Dell Dimension E510 Desktop PC, here is the download page for the Ethernet driver,

http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&ServiceTag=&SystemID=DIMENSION%205150/E510&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=

Download to the computer you are on now, if it has a CD burner optical drive.
Burn this driver to a blank CD-R disk.

(I advise do not use a CD-R/W disk, because it can be written over. Do not put anything else on this disk but driver/s. Label the center of the disk)

Now start the Dell, wait for Windows to fully load, put this disk in the optical drive.
Left-click on Start>My Computer.

Go to to the drive letter that corresponds with the optical drive the CD disk is in, and Double-click on the drive letter.

Follow the Installation Wizard's instructions.

Need administrator password


there are many programs out there that can clear off passwords, and you can even use a flash drive to do it. so u just simply put the files on the flash drive.. pop it into the locked pc, restart the pc and then follow the directions on the program. I will not say the names of these programs as people can use them maliciously

E:\ is not accessible. Incorrect Function.


Also make sure your software is FINALIZING or CLOSING the disc when burning. Otherwise all you are doing is writing temp files for windows to read but no other player will.

Need to find correct driver to reinstall.


Optical drives never require a driver when used in any Windows os from Win95 up. Windows XP provides native support that allows this drive to read a data or music disk and to burn a cd-r disk. No support for playing dvd disks or for burning dvd or cd-rw disks. For those tasks, compatible 3rd. party recording & dvd decoding software is required.

If your problem is non-detection, ie: drive is not listed in "My Computer", please read post #24 in this thread: http://forums.driverguide.com/showth...t=21669&page=4

It contains instructions on the delete the upper and lower filters fix

Also, there is a STICKY posted in this forum that contains a file from Microsoft and instructions that will do this registry edit automatically instead of having to do it manually.


And here's another method that will do this automatically for you if you're afraid to edit the registry manually.

Code: http://forums.driverguide.com/showthread.php?t=22131
(automatic fix, post #7, download file: CdGone.zip)

Alternately, download and install the DVD fix from the Web site below.

http://www.dougknox.com/xp/scripts/xp_cd_dvd_fix.vbs


After performing this registry fix, just reboot the pc. Now your drive should be visible in My Computer and work properly.

Sony VGC RB53 wont recognize blank writeable cd/dvd's


Insert a blank CD, try to burn something on to the disk, if that is successfully done than the CD drive is fine, unless you have a problem. Sometimes blank discs don't show up with direct click.
