Dell :: Inspiron 1525 DVD Drive Randomly Ejecting
I have had a problem with the DVD drive for a few months now. Sometimes the light on it flashes and you here it attempting to look for a DVD (When it's empty). When it's full it sometimes flashes and runs autorun. After it flashes it also ejects half the time, and also it'll just eject randomly without any warning or loading noises.
I explained the problem to Dell and they sent me a replacement DVD drive, but the problem still happens, so I'm guessing it's not the DVD drive itself.
Does anyone have any ideas on how I could solve this problem?

Acer :: Black Screen Error Message
I have an acer aspire 5610 and am having a problem. Everything was working perfect then randomly one day it went black. When i log in it still has the windows sign and everything but when i am in the desktop it is black there is no start bar or Icons or backround. Basically my GUI is gone. but i can still see my mouse pointer. I found that i can run programs by opening task manager and clicking file and start new task then browsing on what used to be my desktop for the internet icon. this works and everything works as it should. but i get an error message fo most all programs other than internet.
i have attached screenshots of my desktop and of the error message that pops up.
at this point i dont care about salvaging the stuff on my comp just want to reset it back to factory defaults. I have tried recoverry CDs that were made and it doesnt recognize them, i cant get to eRecovery due to the error message

Sony :: VGN-Z590 Windows 7 And Vista Error Message
I recently updated my bios and decided to do a new full install of Windows 7. (Previously running Windows 7 Beta).
After doing a clean install and installing the Sony Notebook Utilities. I started getting this pop up message.
"The installed battery may not be properly connected to the computer or may not be compatible with the computer.
Click OK to enter Hibernate Mode, and remove reinsert the battery
See the electronic VIOA(R) User guide for more information about using the battery"
At first I thought this was an issue with Windows 7 - so after searching the forums and no results I figured I would revert back to Vista. Now I am getting the same error.
I also have two Sony Notebook batteries here - both bought direct from Sony. One extended and one standard - both give same error message.
Could this be a BIOS issue? Is there a way to revert to an older bios?
Acer :: Extensa 4420- Error Message (update Your ATI Graphics Driver)
Every time I start up my Extensa 4420, I get the following error message window:
"The Catalyst Control Center is not supported by the driver version of your enabled graphics adapter. Please update your ATI graphics driver, or enable your adapter using the Displays Manager."
Why is this happening? If I go into the device manager, it says that the graphics adapter is working. If I tell it to check for updated drivers it says that the driver I have installed is the most current one. Everything seems to work fine on the computer. How can I stop the message from popping up every time?
Apple :: Message - "You Need To Restart Your Computer"- Then Freezes
Last night, my Macbook Pro froze on me while I was running Windows XP on VMWare Fusion, so I forced shutdown by holding the power button for five seconds.
Ever since, I have not been able to boot the OS at startup. The Apple logo shows up, then the status dial thingy below, and then a grey "curtain" comes down with a "You need to restart your computer" message in multiple languages.
The problem is, it freezes at that point, and it won't let me restart. So I have to force shutdown again by holding down the power button, and the problem repeats.
Sometimes when I try to reboot, it freezes as the grey "curtain" is coming down and before the "You need to restart your computer" message even shows up, so I don't know what is going on.
HP/Compaq :: Computer Not Recognizing Hard Drive
i recently had a post here about my laptop being thrown up on, and looking for a new system board. Well I was able to buy the whole laptop base, with system board and power button so all i had to do was install the screen cd drive, hard drive, and wireless. I did all of this and put it back together, but when i try to start the computer it gives me a no hard drive installed error. What can I do? I ran the memory test and its 100% working, and in the start up test or whatever, the only thing with a problem is the hard drive not showing up.
Acer :: Dvd Drive Disappear From Both My Computer And Device Manager
I currently have an Acer Extensa 5620z-4801. About a month ago, I started using my laptop to burn DVDs. The DVD burner worked just fine for the first 2 DVDs. I used Ashampoo. After those 2 DVDs, it stopped working. I checked on My Computer, and the DVD drive wasn't there. At first I thought it was just temporary, so I restarted my laptop. But then after that, it's still not there, and I freaked out. I checked my device manager to find it, but it vanished from device manager also. I tried to google to find a solution, but doesn't help. I tried that regedit method, but I couldn't find neither upperfilter nor the lowerfilter or whatsoever. I tried removing prime and secondary IDE and reinstall, but doesn't help.

HP/Compaq :: Remove Battery And Optical Drive While Computer Is Running
I recently purchased a new HP laptop and have a few questions.
The computer came with a lightscribe drive and is removable since it also came with a empty filler for the optical drive. Is it ok to remove the drive and/or plug it in while the computer is on ? Same thing w/ the battery... is it ok to pop the battery out when the computer is on AC power, or put the battery back in when the computer is plugged in ?
Sony :: Error 403 While Trying To Restore C Drive
When I try to restore C: partition by using Restore C: Drive option with my Sony Recovery DVD, I always get Error 403 message. The other option, Restore Complete System works fine but that will wipe out all partitions in the drive. The Restore C: Drive option only wipes out C: partition and leave the other partitions intact.
How do I get Restore C: Drive to work? I have FW190 CTO.
Dell :: 9300 Hard Drive Error Unable To Boot O/s
using my unmodded 9300 and shut down for the night. This morning, when I tried to reboot, the process would get to the Windows splash screen, then flash a blue screen so fast I couldn't read it, then go to a black screen that gave me 5 options to start windows. No matter which one I pick, the same process happens again.
I videotaped the blue screen and it reads: a problem has been detected and windows has shut down to prevent damage to my computer unmountable_boot_volume and then it gives me unhelpful advice on how to fix the problem.
I ran the Pre boot system assessment and all items passed. Then I ran the Dell Diagnostic Utility for "unable to boot O/S" with the following results: HD Read Test error: 00F0:0244 and HD Verify Test error: 00F0:1A44. Both of these were on sectors in the middle of the volume and I canceled both tests after about 10 errors. All other memory, graphics, and HD tests passed.
I tried booting from the XP CD and repairing from the CD with no change. I ran chkdsk /p and it found one or more errors on the volume.
bootcfg /list gives me: there are currently no boot entries available to display.
What are my best options on trying to recover this without losing data? I have a fairly recent backup, but would like to try to save what's on the HD. Parallel install? What is fixboot used for?
Dell lists my drive as: M7601 Hard Drive, 60GB, 9.5MM, 7.2K Hitachi, Ibm Moraga

Sony :: Is Your Vaio Z Series Laptop Your Main Computer Or Secondary Computer
Do Vaio Z Series laptop owners use their laptop as their main primary computer or a secondary computer? Do Vaio Z series owners also have a desktop pc as their primary computer and use their Vaio Z Series as a secondary computer? Or is your Vaio Z Series laptop your one and only computer that you always use? Is it comfortable using the 13 inch screen for long periods of time?
Reason i ask is some people have more then one computer and some people just have one.
I'm just wondering if the Vaio Z Series laptop is a good choice as a main computer since it's got good specs and it's nicely portable but will the 13 inch screen be ok to use for long periods even at the higher 1600 x 900 resolution?

Dell :: Voice Message?? On Gaming Display.
Strange but my lcd display on my xps m1730 is showing "voice message." I checked my Skype and Messenger and neither have a voice message waiting.

Apple :: Mac - Service Battery Message
I thought this was only happening to me, but after reports of many other users online, it seems that after the SL upgrade, many Mac users have been witnessing this "service battery" message that displays when you hover over the battery icon.
My mac was bought in Jan 2008, but i do not think it's in bad shape.
Has anyone else experienced this? Is Apple planning to address this?
Just want more information, that I'm sure you guys are aware of..
Apple :: Airport Extreme - Message - The Network You Selected Cannot Be Extended
I just got my Airport Extreme router, and I set up a wireless network easily. However, it doesn't cover the whole house.
So I have another router (Asus WL-530G) and I am thinking of using either of the two routers as a base and the other one as an extender.
I have tried extending the Asus network with the Airport.I got this message:"The network you selected cannot be extended"
I tried setting up a WDS network with Airport Extreme as main, remote or relay. None worked, it said no other apple airport device can be found.
Is this a compatibility issue, or did i miss something?
HP/Compaq :: Display Driver Failure Message On Dv5z When Using Acer Monitor

I updated the monitor driver and all seemed well for a while...until it hapenned again tonight.

Dell :: Is A Reliable Computer Too Much To Ask For?
Just got off the phone with XPS Support.. Not too happy.
I was on my computer earlier, and it froze. Left it alone for 20 mins before having to reboot. The HDD light was Stuck on. Got stuck on the windows start, once again with the HDD light on. Tried the startup repair, same thing.
Thought something in Windows mightve gotten screwed, so I tried launching the Dell Recovery. Nope, got same thing, hdd light stuck on.
Ok, thought it mightve screwed up the recovery partition, so I toss in the Dell windows 7 cd. Got stuck on the setup is starting with the hdd light on.
After reading the m1340 hdd light on thread, I put in my retail windows 7 cd. Got stuck at the same place, so I broke down and called support.
The rep had me do a pre boot assessment. Within 10 secs of launching it, my computer is beeping and flashing the keys indicating a failed hard drive. Even tho I can see it in the BIOs
Just ing great.
Is it really unreasonable to just get a computer that just works? I've had this computer for less than a month and have babied it. It came out of the packaging and has lived on my desk since.
Then, to top it off, my "next business day" onsite repair means the tech (which makes no sense, they won't ship it to me even tho I'm DCSE) will get the part in 2-3 days, arrange a time 3-5 days after that.
Dell :: Massive Computer
My friend has a Dell Inspiron 1520 laptop with Windows Vista 32 bit Home Premium.
He got multiple viruses or his computer last week which led to many problems. While we were trying to remove the viruses, I think one of the antispyware programs deleted a system file since a system file had a virus in it. After restarting, the computer said "Missing Operating System". We've tried many things but to no avail. We would like to use the Dell Recovery Partition, but I can't seem to load up the Recovery Tool so it can boot the recovery partition. We've tried holding ctrl-F11 but nothing happens. In the mean time I've been able to boot up a live version of Ubuntu linux from a USB drive.
Is there any possible way to boot the recover partition and restore Windows?
Dell :: Most Useful Programs For A New Computer
I've been pondering what I'm going to put on the new SXPS16 I'm getting.

I'm looking more for things that will keep the resources down. So far, this is what I've come up with:
Dell :: Was This A Bad Time To Buy A Computer?
I was looking at the stuff coming out soon, and expresscard 2.0 and usb 3.0 are coming out (asus cancelled their first usb 3.0 motherboard as of yet) but with usb 3.0/expresscard 2.0, our dreams of a fast ssd insertable would quickly come to fruition. I was wondering how long it'd take, and if it'd be better to wait like a year?
Dell :: Loading 'Computer', What...?
Maybe this is more a Win 7 issue, but anyways...
When I click 'Computer' in Win Explorer, Win Explorer starts to "load 'Computer'", as indicated by the tool tip on the cancel button (it says "Stop loading 'Computer'").
But why does this happen? What is there to "load"? If I click a drive letter the top contents of the drive are shown instantly, but not when I click 'Computer'. Also,
while loading the gray bar moves along the top of the window, but the HD lights do not flash any more than in ordinary use when not writing to the HDs. Furthermore, this "loading 'Computer'" gets slower the longer the progress...
Dell :: Specs Of A Computer-Illiterate
back in 2005 I bought an Inspirion 6000-D. A few days ago a cat spilled coke in it while I was out of the house. It was destroyed. Thankfully, I had the Dell accidental damage warranty (which I'd forgotten all about.) Here's the specs on what they're sending as a replacement.
Is this a decent machine?

Dell :: Old Version Of Office On New Computer
I got the XPS M1530, 2.4 GHz, 4 GB RAM, 64 bit Vista & Blu-ray writeable. Also got Office, but the version is 2007.
Is that the latest available? Seems odd to buy a new high end computer & get old software.
Also, they have the hard drive partitioned into C: & D: The D: drive is called RECOVERY & uses ~8GB. I couldn't find where this is described anywhere. Sounds important.

Dell :: New Computer, 1720 To 1710
I had a 1705 and it crapped out. Got a 1720, wasn't bad, but just not me. No dell didn't repalce mine with an exchange from the 1705 to the 1710. I am an honest person and didn't feel like spending hours and hours of my life. So I picked up a 1710 from the outlet...
Dell :: Computer Noise Coming Through Firewire
I have got a Dell 9300 that I've been using for recording for a while. I've recently gotten a new external audio interface, a Presonus Firestudio that I connect to the Firewire port on the 9300. I'm getting digital noise coming through the Firestudio from the 9300 through the Firewire port. The noise, ie. chirping, clicking and popping, happens when you move your mouse or resize a window.
I've tried running the interface into the computer using a PCMCIA to FW adapter and running it into the cardbus slot. That has reduced the noise some, but has not eliminated it.
I don't remember getting this noise always, but I certainly have been dealing with it for a while. The noise isn't recorded so I can record just fine, it's just noisy when I'm monitoring.
Dell :: Computer Running Slower Than Normal
I have noticed that sometimes my computer is running slower than normal... how can i fix this? what are some steps that i can take?

if your computer is running slow, could that just be a result of windows vista (if you have the latest update)?
Dell :: XPS M1710 CPU Upgrade Computer Illiterate
I have an XPS m1710 from the early days when the CPU was an Intel Core Duo T2500. My Dell died and the folks in India told me the mobo was bad.
So I replaced it and I still have the same problem. The problem was when I tried to turn the machine on I got a power light and HDD light for 1-2 seconds then he system shut down. Reading posts it seems my CPU is bad (when I replaced mobo I cleaned out significant dust bunnies from the fans.
So, my real question - - can I install an Intel Core 2 Duo T7#00 CPU in m system or do I need to find another T2500? I purchased a new desk model and I just dont want to toss a good laptop if there is a simple fix.
Dell :: Computer Wont Wake Up From Sleep
A common issue, but here is what I know:
My 1420 with a Geforce 8400GS will not wake up from sleep. I know that it is the graphics cards fault, because everything else seems to be fine when I poen the lid.
I am using laptop2go 185.20 drivers.
Does anyone know how I can try to fix this, or what geforce 18x.xx drivers still wake up properly with an 8400 gs?
I am committed to the non-dell drivers, because Dell is horribly out of date, and the performance boost I get from the newer drivers is very worthwhile.
Acer :: Computer Slowed Way Down
Acer Ferrari 5005
AMD Turion X2 2.0 Ghz
2.0GB of RAM
ATI X1600M 256MB
A few days ago the computer started acting very slow; it is very slow in pulling up a window, starting new programs, and the clock is also slowed way down. The time in BIOS is also slow. No virus/malwares/ad wares detected. Interestingly, when I "pinch" the lower case at around the ATI/WinXP stickers area, the computer functions fine. But as soon as I stop pinching and flexing the lower casing, the computer slows again, sometimes to the point of becoming completely non-responsive. However, if I were to pinch the same corner again, the computer responds and acts normal.
Sony :: Sz 330- Computer Keeps Locking Up
i did a reformat but during it, it froze up and i had to force a shut down. when i turned it back on it continued from the same place and finished fine it seemed. but then it kept freezing up every 20minutes or so, or when it seemed like the processor couldnt handle what was going in. i started to think maybe it was overheating so i set it to adaptive and put the fan speed on level 5. it still freezes up but it takes longer to do so. its really annoying. i tried reinstalling all the drivers and everything and it kinda fixed it but it still freezes up. anyone know whats wrong? im ready to just smash this thing because ive been having important things to do and it keeps doing this crap.
