If all of the Windows sounds work and just audio CD's are failing you can try the following:

First goto Device Manager (right click my computer and select manage, then click on devices in the left hand column). Get the properties for the CD drive you are using. Go to the Properties tab and make sure there is a check in "Enable digital CD audio for this CD-ROM device".

If there is a check there then you need to make sure that you have an audio cable going from the CD to the sound card (or system board if you have on board audio).

Good luck.

Non functioning CD/DVD drive on Shuttle SN41G2 PC


Does Windows still detect the drive? If you were to go into My Computer or Computer (depending on the version of Windows) are you able to see the drive?
Place a DVD or CD (Software or Multimedia) that you have tested on a different system and then use Windows Explorer to browse the drive.
To launch Explorer right click on My Computer (Vista/Win 7: Computer) and then select explorer. Select the DVD drive and see if you are able to view the contents.
If Windows still detects the drive and you are unable to view the contents of a tested DVD or CD then it would most likely be the drive.

Windows Vista Premium. Trying to rip a cd to my computer. Unable to do so. CD plays fine if i play music from the cd itself. Tried Itunes 1st. Rips about 12 secs of audio for each song. Says complete....


maybe the windows has this security issues. coz from my point of view windows vista is dedicated on security. so that's why you cannot rip most of the songs very well.

When I shut down my computer, I think that it is shutting down completly. All lights are off indicating that it is shut down. Then a small blue window will appear and will say "Entering Power Safe Mode"....


If you are turning off your computer by pressing the front panel power button, it is probably just putting Windows to sleep but not shutting the computer off. If your computer has Windows Vista, the default is to hibernate and not shut down even if you shut down through Vista. The "power save" message you see is coming from the monitor, which is letting you know it isn't getting a signal from the computer anymore but the power is still on. Windows will start up again from sleep mode if someone or something moves the mouse or presses a key.

The solution is to make sure the computer is actually shut down. In Vista you can do this by clicking the arrow near the power icon on the Start menu. This gives you the option of shutting down instead of hibernating. In XP, shut the computer down using the start menu shutdown option instead of the computer power button. Then the power will shut down completely.

  2. Click Start, click Shut Down, and then, in the drop-down list, click Shut down.
  3. In the Shut Down Windows dialog box, click Restart, and then click OK.

  • Choosing Last Known Good Configuration provides a way to recover from problems such as a newly added driver that may be incorrect for your hardware. It does not solve problems caused by corrupted or missing drivers or files.
  • When you choose Last Known Good Configuration, only the information in registry key HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet is restored. Any changes you have made in other registry keys remain.
  • NUM LOCK must be off before the arrow keys on the numeric keypad will function.

My notebook computer seems to be frozen. I only see the screen that shows the windows vista home premium page. I can't see any icons on screen.


Hello! sounds like you need to make sure the Vista Cd is in a drive, shut down p.c. then re-boot you will be asked to boot from cd by pressing any key. Let windows load files then you set location and keyboard layout the next page will ask for full install/upgrade or REPAIR? try the repair item.
Good Luck!!
