This has been a common windows issue. I'm sure that this will solve your problem. You can go to this link, http://tinyurl.com/toshibadvd, download the registry file and run it. After that, just restart your computer and it should be good to go.

If you're not sure and is worried about security since this is messing with the registry, you can just click on this microsoft link where it explains and gives you detailed instructions on how to manually edit the registry and fix the problem. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929461.

This is typically the same thing, the first one is just a shortcut on how to do it. Just a reminder, EDIT THE REGISTRY AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!

Bios password recovery....


If it's a "desktop" computer (not a "laptop") computer, open the case, and look for three gold pins in a row, with a jumper between pins #1 and #2.
With the computer turned off, move the jumper to connect pins #2 and #3. After a few seconds, return the jumper to its original position.
You have now "cleared" all the BIOS settings, including removing the BIOS password.

Suddenly my dvd drive for compaq c700 presario wont appear on my computer and also it wont open and no light was appearing on the said drive


hmm, if the light is out the drive is probably dead. since it's a laptop prety much the only reliable source for parts is going to be here: http://www.compaq.com/country/cpq_support.html

just go through the "solve a problem" process and you will eventualy be directed to either the warranty service or the parts department depending on how old your machine is.

Two vertical lines on my compaq presario (M2000) laptop


Well, since the line disappear when the screen saver comes on, I"m led to believe that all the hardware side of the equation is OK. To put it simply, if there was a malfunction in the video (chances are) it would affect that too.

I would update (most likely available as nobody usually does this) the firmware for your video card. So identify the card EXACTLY, from documentation, or from the build list on the manuf. website, goto the manufacturer, say, ATI, and find the firmware there, where you will also find instructions to install it.

Then, just to be sure, I would update the video driver for Windows, in a similar manner to the instructions above.

If, despite all the above you still have a problem, then its time to get the computer serviced.

Good luck,

Erik.
