DVDRW Don't Work Properly

Question: DVDRW Don't Work Properly

My friend has a sony vaio desktop pc which he bought like 2 years ago. The problem is the DVDRW.

It reads original Audio/Video CDs, ORIGINAL DVDs, CD-Rs. But it won't read DVD-Rs. I thought the problem could be the laser beam. Since its 2 years old and used really efficiently, laser beam might be losing its strength?

What other problems could it be? We've formatted hdd and installed windows xp again but it didn't help.

Since its under warranty, should he take it to sony? will they change dvdrw just because its not reading DVD-Rs? Should he try to break it down completely somehow before he takes it to sony?

Any suggestions, ideas, opinions are welcome!

Thanx,

Answer: DVDRW Don't Work Properly

Did it read DVD-r's before? what DVD-R's have your tried? ( brand) also what DVD burning software is installed on the machine?

taking the burner apart will void the warranty.

Hi all,

I've just acquired a new ASUS DVDRW (DRW-1608P25) and have installed it as the Master drive on my Secondary IDE Controller. I think the jumper is correct

I've got a LiteOn 1693s DVDRW on the same IDE channel as the Slave.

Weird thing is, I've managed to burn using the ASUS but when I try to read a disc, (both originals and burnt discs), it doesn't read properly.

For example: driver CDs with their own installation interface. When I attempt to load them, I get an error. Sometimes the error being "Not a VAlid Win32 applciation" but when I chuck the disc into the LiteOn, it loads fine.

It lists the files of data on DVDRs but I can't seem to open them. Previously had a DVDROM in there but swapped it out. That worked fine.

Any ideas why? Probably something simple. I thought that if the jumpers were wrong or if the cable was loose that the drive would not be able to function at all, let alone let me burn a disc.

Thanks.

Using WinXP pro
 

Answer:New DVDRW not reading discs properly

[SOLVED]

I used the CDROM IDE cable that my motherboard included, which was what I've been using for all optical drives.

I swapped it with a High Density 133MB one and that worked. Seems this new Asus drive needs one of these to read properly. It burnt okay though, which was weird. Drive includes an IDE cable but it only has one IDE connector hence I didn't use it.

From the beginning, my DVDRW is not recognized and does not show up in the drive list.  However, it shows up in the device list and indicates that "this device is working properly".   There have been a few times when I absolutely had to use the drive and I tried uninstalling and reinstalling it which allowed me to use it (and it showed up) ONE TIME.  This doesn't always work though.  This issue isn't due to an upgrade from windows 7 or 8, unless this computer had a lower version and was upgraded before being shipped.  Or, if a disk was made from an upgraded PC and used to install Windows 10 on many PCs (that would sure tick me off).  I am so frustrated I could pull my hair out.  I have been to the Microsoft forums and this is a common problem with other brands of PCs that have Windows 10, but not limited to that version.  There are many "solutions" which other posters say don't work.  I am so afraid to go into my registry and start messing with stuff in there.  PLEASE, someone provide a solution or upgrade that will take care of this issue!

I have searched and googled til I'm blue in the face now.
I have a Toshiba Satellite A45-S250 laptop with a Pioneer DVR-K12D DVDRW.
I just recently wiped the pc and restored it using the cd.
It restored to WinXP.
I upgraded to WinXP pro SP2 and now the drive will not recognize any dvd.
It won't play any DVD's and it won't burn any dvd's.
Everything that drive sees is a cd.
With nothing in it the Explorer shows it as a Pioneer DVR-K12D DVDRW drive, but as soon as I put a DVD in there, it changes to a CD drive.

Obviously, this is some sort of software/firmware issue, however, Toshiba's site doesn't have any kind of firmware for this thing. There is a firmware for this drive out there, but it is for a Sony Vaio, which does not help me.

I've tried uninstalling the Primary and Secondary IDE's and the controller, rebooting and letting Windows find the hardware and install the software. I reboot again as it suggests and I'm right back to where I started where no DVD's are recognized.

There are MANY people in my google search that had this problem, and there were no solutions. I would think if my drive were bad, it wouldn't even recognize cd's.

Any of my tech friends have any suggestions?

Thanks so much.

Not necessarily true. Different sets of lasers diodes and pickups are used for DVDs and CDs within a combo drive.

Does Windows device manager show any errors or warnings for the drive?

Have you tried Nero Info Tool (page with free download link) to see if it reports the drive capabilities correctly?

hi folks

iv just installed a dvdrw and connected everything up, switched my pc on but there is no evidence of my cd rom or dvdrw hardware. Ive double checked that ribbon cables and power cables are correct.

Any ideas Please help!!!!
Much appreciated
 

Answer:cant get my cd rom and dvdrw to work

Check your jumpers.
Put the dvdrw on the top of the IDE cable and set the jumper to master. Put the cdrw on the middle connection of the IDE cable and set the jumper to slave.

I have no idea what my sister and her friends were doing on the comp for a couple of days that i decided not to use it, but now:

- a few programs take forever to load or don't load at all, but they do show up under the processes tab in the task manager
- after pressing Ctrl Alt Del, the task manager icon appears in the system tray, but the thing only shows up a minute later
- my system recovery is "not able to protect my computer," and restarting does nothing
- actually, when restarting or shutting down Windows, it stops at where it only shows my desktop background and cursor [which is still able to move] and nothing else after that, so i have to hold the power button and force it to shut off
- when I right click the desktop and click on "Properties..." [or something similar to this action] it doesn't show up at all, and whenever I try to open any application after that, they don't even load at all either

Things i've tried to get rid of these problems:
- Virus scan with avast!, a couple viruses found and fixed, but nothing changed.
- disk clean up, nothing changed
- registry clean, nothing changed
- CURRENTLY defragging my C drive, hope something changes..

Anyone know what the heck's going on!?
Anyone got any suggestions on what to do next?
Anything helps and would be greatly appreciated!
 

Answer:Apps not starting properly, sys. recov. doesn't work, can't shut down properly, etc..

no replies yet?

anyway, just stopped by to say that when shutting down, it takes forever to get to the "Saving your settings..." screen, and that's where I decided that it stops and nothing else after that.
Defragged my C drive, still no results besides the computer feeling a bit smoother-running o_o

Guys, a real basic question. I am looking at buying a new machine and have a choice of DVDRW/CDRW or DVDRW. The CD write and read speed (16 and 24) appears alot quicker than the DVD write and read speed (4 and 8). Is this a true comparison i.e. the CD reads 4 times quicker than the DVD or am I missing something. Will be using the laptop for a lot of CD reading for itunes and this is an important factor in my decision. All guidance appreciated. Cheers.

On a side note anyone know what the differance is between these two graphics chipsets?? i.e. which is better or are they pretty much the same

Gaphics chipset - Intel 855GM NVIDIA Ge Force FX go 5200
Mem Size - 64mb 64mb
Mem type - Shared Dedicated
 

Answer:DVDRW/CDRW 'v' DVDRW Whats the difference between the read and write speeds???

Personally i would opt for the DVDRW/CDRW combo drive as it will give you the most burning options for backing up data/music.
If you are going to have an empty bay i would get a plain old CDR to play music on as they are dirt cheap now.
Reason being is burners run a lot hotter and i only use them strictly for burn projects.They will play your music fine but why subject them to the wear if not needed. After all their not as cheap to replace. My CDR is 54x and about 4 years old and still ticking. I found out the hard way about wearing out a burner.

Long story short, dad got a virus on his computer which is on W7 x64. I fully cleaned out everything using Symantec AV, MSE, SuperAntispyware, Malware Bytes and HiJackThis. Everything is smooth and fast now.

However, ever since the virus attack the SATA optical drive is not detected by Windows anymore. It's not even in device manager, just shows up as unknown device. It works fine if you boot up from CD or dual boot in with the other OS which is Windows Vista, so physically the drive is fine. I have tried updating the chipset drivers, uninstalled/reinstalled the SATA controller and optical drive. Also tried installing SP1.

Is there anything else I can try to get it to work without having to reformat? It will be a REAL PITA to reformat.

Thanks!
Edit: The error code I get for the optical drive in device manager is "Windows cannot verify the digital signature for the drivers required for this device. A recent hardware or software change might have installed a file that is signed incorrectly or damaged, or that might be malicious software from an unknown source. (Code 52)"

Hey Gang,

I have a DVDRW that rewrites at 2.4. Yesterday I was sold a set of disks that says 4x on the package. No range of speeds, just 4x. The guy who sold them to me said they'd work in my machine but they'd just record slower.

IS this true or was I given a line by someone who just was trying to make a sale and get my money back?

Thanks,

Hi I?ve got a dell Vostro 430 with windows 7, it?s about 8 year old, two weeks ago the internal dvdrw drive which I use on a weekly basis suddenly stopped working, it would make noises like it was trying to spin up but never manage it so after deciding it was probably old age I bought an external usb3 portable DVD burner. It does exactly the same thing with one difference, it will play original dvds but shows exact same failiure to spin up with any RW DVD?s both +and -.

It gets stranger. About a year ago I did a clean install of windows on a new hard drive which is what is currently in the pc so thinking it must be a recent driver glitch or something I swapped it out for the old hard drive (which still works fine but was just taking forever to boot hence the clean install on a new hard drive) expecting the dvds to work but they don?t, both burners do exactly the same thing and when I try to click on them in my computer I get ?not responding?

I?ve deleted upper and lower filters in registry but made no difference, I?ve deleted the internal drive from device manager and rebooted to let it reinstall it but made no difference
Has anyone got any suggestions on cause?

The title pretty much says it all. I'm honestly at the end of my rope. Device manager replies all is well, yet sound stopped working overnight.

It isn't muted,I'm not that oblivious.

I own Advanced System Care Pro ( and consequently, Driver Booster ) so I have already all of my drivers up to date, as well as any other problems I might have had.

Used a bunch of other scanners to figure out the problem to no avail. Plugging some headphones in also doesn't cut it, so it made me think that perhaps the hardware was actually fine and some software conflict was the cause of the problem. I have no freaking clue anymore, should I just get mad and yell at my computer for an hour or so to relieve stress now??
 

Answer:Laptop audio refuses to work, all devices work properly, sound isn't muted. Help?

First we need to know the EXACT make and model number of the laptop in question. Secondly the only place you should be looking for drivers for you laptop is the laptop manufacturers support website. Driver scanners really are not helpful.

Hi,

My Sat Pro 6100 has just been away for the usual motherboard and power board replacement with Toshiba, but now I have a strange keyboard problem.

When I turn it on, all the keys work. After a few minutes, '3' doesn't work, then 'r' fails, then '5','7','8','9','0' stop working. At this stage I can feel something getting very hot under the middle of the keyboard. A reboot and no keys work. Another reboot with an external PS2 keyboard, and the internal keyboard is still faulty (some keys work, others don't) but the external one works correctly.

Now if the pc didn't get so hot under the middle of the internal keyboard, then I would conclude that the keyboard was faulty, but for it to fail slowly and sequentially like this, and it fails the same way every day (Since the Toshiba rebuild!).

Maybe, internal keyboard controller overheating?
Does anyone know what this might be? :-(

Cheers,
Homer

Answer:Keyboard on Sat Pro 6100 doesn't work properly after remedial work

Right under the keyboard of your pro 6100 is the VGA graphics controller (the keyboard cable plugs into the same card). It is normal that this part becomes warm during usage.

It's strange that your problem appears after a while and not right away.

It might be just an improper reseating of the keyboard cable (it's a thin layer like a photo film-negative) that easily pops out, but... it can be something more serious, too. (Especially since you had the upgrade done where hardware had to be changed)

I would consult the service center once again and ask for instructions how to deal with this. Don't ignore it (by using an external keyboard instead of the malfunctioning internal) as it might end up into something more serious soon...

On my laptop I have a DVD CDRW combo drive (ie. I can watch DVDs and burn CDs). However the past three times I have tried to burn a music CD the buffer rate goes all the way down, then fixes itself, but shortly after completely fails and the burning process stops at 30%.

Variables:
>I have not changed the type of CD I use when burning since I have had the laptop.
>I have always used Nero burning software.
>I have installed new RAM recently.

Basically, I am wondering if there is anything I can do to fix this error. If it is the RAM that caused this (I'm pretty sure the errors started shortly after new RAM) will taking it out fix it? Should I try a new burning suite? If the problem is not fixable the laptop is still covered under a 12 month HP warranty and 3 year extended warranty so I can get it replaced or fixed but I would rather that be the last resort. Any help would be great, I don't know anything about hardware issues, etc.

I had currently built a pc for the first time. It all went swell until my moniter displayed: "no signal". I had looked this up and I've tryed everything to prevent it.I had also an extra pair of eyes but they didn't know either. So, I came to the understanding that it might be the parts which might be the down side to this error. My Build:

Zotac 1060 3gb.
AMD Athlon X4-860k CPU, 4 cores, 3.7 - 4GHz.
Kingston HyperX 3k ssd 120gb.
Aerocool 80 plus 600w PSU.
GA-F2A68HM-HD2 gigabyte.
16GB 2x8GB DDR3

(Budget build for the time being)

All the wiring is done correctly and I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I've followed the manual redid some of the steps so I'm just thinking its one of parts but which one?
(I know the cpu is probably bottlenecking but I plan to upgrade it in the future.)

Thanks for reading.

Hi, I've made a bit of a mess of my computer and now don't know what to do. It won't start up properly at all now. It's a Packard Bell, about 1 1/2 years old, operating on Vista Basic.
Basically, I downloaded a film that I think was dodgy and now it's caused me all sorts of problems and I'm worried I may have lost everything on my hard drive. After I realised the film was no good, I deleted it and thought I better run a quick virus scan, just in case. I use AVG for this. I started the scan and walked away but a minute or two later I heard the pc 'pip' as if it was turning itself back on. Then I got the black and white screen and just two options ; 'Start Windows Normally' and 'Start Windows Recovery'. I tried to start normally but after the splash screen, the screen just stays black and nothing happens. Then I turned off/on and tried the 'Windows Recovery' option. From the menu within this option, I took the ioption to go back to a restore point, which involved several scans to fix any problems first (which lasted about 45 mins). The scans said that they could find nothing wrong with the system but it still wouldn't start from the last restore point. I also tried other options in this menu, such as letting the Windows recover try to fix files etc. but still no good. When I start the computer, I still just get the two options, both of which seem a bit futile now.
Is it worth trying to start the system in Safe Mode (even though at the moment it's not giving me ... Read more

Answer:Can't get my computer to work properly - Help!

You'll have to see if the data still exists on the drive before doing anything else.
There's several ways to do this, the easiest way is to access it by the Command Prompt option in the Startup Repair menu (which I think that you're getting to).

If the data is still intact, you'll have to take measures to recover the data before proceeding. Let us know if the data is there and we'll work from that.

For some reason, my LAN is not working for gaming. I CAN connect to the internet to play games online, like through Battle.net and Westwood Online (for Warcraft 3 and Renegade), but I cannot seem to play on Local Area Network with any of my games except for Half-Life: Counter-Strike 1.0 (NOT the steam version). I can also access the shared documents folders on my other computers, but the games will just not work unless it's Counter-Strike 1.0.

I have just recently manually uninstalled Windows OneCare Live after a virus removal(in accordance with the instructions from http://www.askdavetaylor.com/how_do_i_remove_windows_onecare.html), except for 2 folders inside called:
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Windows OneCare Live\ClientSD" and
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Windows OneCare Live\Database"
Inside the Database folder are six files, but I cannot access the Client SD folder. When I try to remove them, I get a message that says I cannot remove them due to write protection or current usage.

I'm pretty sure that Windows Live OneCare is the issue in not being able to play on LAN, since I could play games on LAN up until Windows OneCare Live's installation, but I am not getting any "This program is being blocked" notifications from OneCare or Windows firewall.

OS: Windows XP Professional, Version 2002, Service Pack 2
I also have both IPX and TCP/IP protocols installed on my machine, if that even matters.

Answer:Question: How can I get my LAN to work properly?

After I searched around for a while, I came across this website called Major Geeks, and it provided me a tool that automatically removed the unremovable remnants of OneCare. Here is the URL to download the auto-uninstall tool:

Major Geeks OneCare removal utility

Special thanks to these guys that I searched for. Now my LAN games are running just like they were before I had OneCare.

NOTE: Be sure to unplug/disconnect yourself from the internet whilst you run the application, as Windows Firewall is temporarily deactivated, and you are prompted to restart the computer when the removal is finished.

Hi folks
I recently placed an advert in the paper for my small business, and when someone clicks on the advert, it should bring up a box where readers can email me for more information.
However, I have tried this out myself, and when I click on the advert, a box appears on the screen, and on top of the box it says ‘enter your user name and pass word for the following server’. Underneath, in the same box, there is a sub heading saying
Server: smtp.mail.yahoo.co.uk. Underneath in the same box, the user name heading appears and my first name automatically is filled in there with a password. (about half a dozen asterisks).
No matter how many times I press the ok button in that box, the box reappears and does not go away. While all this is happening, there appears a larger box in the background which would enable readers to email me there queries for more information etc.
So, at the moment, I am totally confused with why this is happening. More importantly, does that mean I would not be able to accept emails from readers?
By the way, my inbox does except ‘normal’ emails from other users.
Thanks in advance for your response.

Answer:How can I get my emails to work properly?

Difficult to answer without knowing what the "paper" is that you've placed the advert in and the format of the ad. Normally, a link to send an email takes the form...
mailto:[email protected]
...and clicking on it opens a new message window in the user's email program.

I also tried using Alcohol 120% to burn the image but it also fails with an error. I had a rewritable DVD lying around so I put it on my laptop, tried erasing it but that also fails.

Basically the only thing I can do with the laptops DVD-Rom/burner is reading CDs/DVDs and nothing else. This didn't happen before? I'm really bummed, as I don't know what could be causing this issue. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Hi Sean,

With all of these multiple problems you listed here and considering the fact that; according to your last post, you have had these problems for over a week and they have gotten only worse over time: My suggestion would be to back up all of your docs, picture, music, email settings, and files and then reformat and reinstall Windows XP.

I mean, if you think about this for a second: A reinstall of Windows will take only about a few hours or so; and with all of these problems you're experiencing (which could take weeks just to figure out what the problem actually is; much less fix it) you are better off doing the reinstall of Windows XP in my opinion.

If you do not have the Windows XP install disk you can get one from Dell support, either via their support site or by calling them. You can also call Dell directly at this number 1-800-WWW-DELL. Here are the three Dell Service Dept numbers as well (800)-820-8965 or (800)-624-9897 or (800)-627-1170. You can also try contacting Dell via this online tech support link.

Last year I bought a Dell 8400 (from eBay) which did not come with the Win XP Pro disk. Someone in another forum told me that Dell support would provide a Dell Win XP Reinstall (at either no cost or perhaps a small fee or shipping). All I had to do was to provide the express service code and prove th... Read more

Hey, So I updated the Y510P to windoes 8.1 (Most regretted thing I've done with this laptop, that includes doing a battery reset.)  As many people have found out there are issues with 8.1 and SLI. I used the recomended BIOS update, and that seemed to fix the issue.  Unfortunatly, for some reason I'm not sure about, the 750M does not seem to be working right. Before the windows 8.1, and after updating the BIOS, League of Legens ran at the 60 FPS capped at max settings.  After the 8.1 and now, LoL will run around 10-15 FPS at max settings, and only 25 FPS at the lowest graphics settings.  I'm not sure why the laptop's performance has dropped.  I'm also getting major lag in Path of Exiles, where I used to have no issues playing it.  As I mentioned, I have used the BIOS update, and it did fix the issue I had with 8.1  I've specified that the laptop use the 750M as the default graphics GPU, and in the GPU monitor, the games show up and using it.  But as I've stated, their performance is at par with using the integrated  Intell graphics card.  Any thoughts or suggestions of what I can try to fix this issue would be greatly appreaciated. Sincerly,Jinotad.

Hello everyone.

My name is George Sebros and I owe a Toshiba Satellite A300.
The reason why I am posting this new thread is that I need a little help from anyone who knows something about my problem above:
One day, about 2 months ago... I turn on my Satellite A300.
When it logged in, not only none of my icons appeared but also the start menu didn't....
The only thing that appeared in a totally BLACK screen, was my "Documents and Settings" folder which was opened automatically.
There was no way I could find neither the Start menu (I mean the task bar) nor my icons...
So, everytime I closed the Documents and Settings folder that was appeared, the only thing I could see was a black screen....
It was a kind of shock for me and I could not believe in my eyes...

After a few days, I tried the well-known combination "Ctrl+Alt+Del" in order to see what was working and what was not.
Then, I pressed the "FILE" and then "NEW TASK" and finally, I typed the word "explorer" in it.
That was it!! Suddenly, everything turn to normal as like the day before the problem begun. I was happy because with this way, I was able to use my Satellite A300 again!
However, this is an indirect way to make my PC work!
That means that I am still fain to use that indirect way to make the icons and the taskbar appear.
Does it mean that the "explorer.exe" is not working ?

Hi

Seems your Vista is muddled up?
You could try to clean the OS and the registry in order to avoid new OS installation.
Please use the CCLeaner.

I use this tool as well? it free and it cleans the registry and other temporally files.
It helps really!

But if the OS will still not work as it should then you should try a new installation?
Of course this procedure is drastically because the HDD would be formatted but at the other hand you will get a clean and fully functional OS

My CD ROM does not work properly because of corrupted drivers. I have tried uninstalling etc. How do you load new drivers or even reformat from the recovery disc when the CD ROM drive won't work?

Seems like catch 22. Anyone help?

Answer:Satellite A30 - CD-ROM does not work properly

If it is really a problem with the drivers for your CD-Rom, you can recover it.

Because you need to boot your Notebook with the Recovery CD/DVD.
This has nothing to do with missing drivers in the Windows Operating System.

And if you can not boot with the Recovery Disc, I would say your Disc drive is broken.

I am a hold off and planned to keep Windows 7 to EOL in 2020. I recently did a Windows 7 to 10 upgrade for a friend and was so delighted with it that I now updated my own system to Windows 10. Very smooth install, update a few drivers and some programs, but working very well. Except for Mail.

What kind of joke is this Windows 7 Mail? It has to be the prettiest mail client I ever used, and the most inept and useless one at that. I install my AT&T email accounts and they configure nicely, but some never sync. I send myself some test mails, they never arrive but do arrive on my Android phone. There is no contact list, but typing a few bits into the To: line offers contact suggestions. This AT&T account I use most for friends and when I get, say, 2 emails and read them, they are gone! I must have hundreds or thousands of old emails, yet NONE show on Win10 email. Nothing to see. I used my Live 2012 server settings for win10 mail, did not work, says outdated settings. One hour later, "Not synced yet". Blue dots moving, no significant data downloading. No way to use with One Drive so I imagine sending 6 full size high res images will be a thing of the past. The gmail account synced well, I have mail going back to 2011 in that folder. My GoDaddy domain name email is working and showing past mail.

Dear readers.

Just bod an Acer with Windows 7 Home Premium .
After running the Windows 7 install ( with all available updates downloaded) it looked perfect.
But then I found out that something was NOK


Problem description.

As example, I start up Skype ( it runs ok)
Now I want to quit the program ( not using the X, but terminate it)

I click on my Windows task bar and select Skype

Then I click my right mouse button and again a pop up menu appears (still ok) with several options for this program amongs them the desired option Quit
I select quit

Now the problem occurs:

When I click on the choosen option, a system file opens.
That?s it. ( its applicable for all options and the command opens always the same file)

Computer/Acer C:/windows/system32

This happens for all programs in the Start menu.
Nothing else happens, the system runs normal but the desired operation is not been performed.. I can quit the window with the sysyem file appearing . All looks fine but of course the program is still running


When I now really want to stop a program I need to go to taskmanager (by pressing CRL/ALT/DEL) to abort it.

Whats wrong with my Windows 7?
Started an SFC scan, no problems detected.

HELP please, thx.

After that the comp. either shutsdown, and the little lights that shows if the PC gets power starts to blink.
Allthough, i removed the battery and im using only the power from the adapter. And then it works fine, but that means i cant move the pc, or it will shut down.
Do i need a new battery? And if i do, where do i get it?

If anyone has had the same problem as me, how did you solve it? (im from sweden btw)

Thank you, (sorry for the bad english><)

Answer:Qosmio F20 does not work properly

Hi there,

it sounds strange, I never heard that a battery would be the cause for such error. Maybe it would be interesting if you can reproduce the
error when attaching the battery back to the machine. If the error appears again, try first to update the bios to the newest available and
if the error persists, bring your machine to a local service partner.

I think maybe it?s a hardware-related problem, but I cannot tell you securely if yes or not.

If you need really a servicepartner, then follow this link to find the nearest available in your country:

Hi,

I'm having problems with the Tempo service.

I am not receiving ANY updates via this application (all settings of this application are correct, ie "full monitoring"). I know this because there are updates available online for my laptop via the toshiba driver site.

When I first installed Tempo, I received updates for about a month, then suddenly no updates came through. My firewall is not blocking this application either.

I have tried re-installing the application, but no change in the situation.

Does anyone know if ALL the updates that are available via the toshiba driver site come through to Tempo? Because, during the month that this service WAS working, I got a bios update, however I have recently seen a bios update online and Tempo still hasn't reported that it is available.

Any ideas on how to get Tempo to work properly?

Thanks.

Answer:Re: How to get Tempo to work properly?

I saw in your other thread that you have installed the SP1 on your Vista notebook.

But I bought it last week.. installed everything and now I'm having the same problem again. It's just annoying and stupid because I dont get how MSN works slow on a high end PC. Anyway, I had Eset Smart Security installed, I unistalled it and went back to my old version of Nod32 Antivirus, and this seemed to fix the problem somehow for most of the day. Late at night it happened again. I have to close MSN and re open it to fix it for a while it seems..

I'm running a 64 bit OS by the way. Any help is appreciated :(

For some reason on my two computers that run windows 10, I am not able to connect to ANY VPN server that is not hosted in the US, I am dumbfounded as pretty much I am the ONLY one with this problem and have no idea where to go for help. Mind you, on my phone all VPN'S work regardless of location. Also, I switch networks every week back and forth with the same problem on both networks, so I do not think it is a network issue? Anyways please help me in my struggles.

OS: windows 10
VPN used: VPN gate

i am using a pair of tsunmi speakers, i can hear sound when i dial up, but got no sound on anything else anyone got any suggestions please
 

Answer:my sound does not work properly

Hello, and welcome to techspot!

We need to know a bit more about your computer. Please fill in as much info as you know in your "profile".

A couple of questions:

1. How long have you had the computer?
2. Did it EVER have sound?

The problem is likely one of two things.

1. You have the volume on mute in your sound settings
2. You don't have the drivers installed.

Do you know how to check to see if it is problem #1?

I recently installed a new 60GB SSD to handle gaming better, and I kept my old HDD for storage. To handle transferring my OS to it I used a program called "Migrate OS to SSD". When I did the transfer I only moved my Windows directory, and now when I start up I get an error message saying my user account was not loaded properly. I also cannot get any of my internet browsers to connect to the internet either. The only reason I added this SSD was for gaming. I am to the point where I am thinking it might be easier just to wipe both hard drives and re-install windows onto the SSD. Also, some of the programs that were left on the old HD are not working now, but I don't know if it is because I do not have admin rights or not because my profile won't load. Thanks for any help.

Answer:Trying to get OS migration to work properly

Hi,

Is the SSD too small for a complete clone of the system?

If not, clone the old drive onto the SSD, when that is up & running, wipe the old drive & use it for storage.

Else you need to start again with the system & use extra space & install your programs to a storage drive (Old one or another). OK?

Hi,

Im having "issues" with playing DVD's and CD's on the internal DVD/CD drive on my Equium M50-192
While playing DVD's the images stutter and the audio is very slightly out of sync with the video. When playing CD's, they play slow.

Have tried various players (Nero, Intervideo etc) and all seem the same.
Have also tried an external drive and this seems to solve the problem for 99% of the time with DVD's (still get the occasional stutter) and CD's play OK.

Has anybody got any ideas?

Thanks.

Answer:ODD on Equium M50 does not work properly

Hi there,

it sounds like your ODD has a hardware problem which needs to be fixed by an toshiba technician which means you must bring your machine to an authorized service partner.

So I suggest you to visit the following link:
http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com/cgi-bin/ToshibaCSG/generic_content.jsp?service=EU&ID=ASP_SUPPORT

Pick your ASP which is the nearest in your region and then let them do the rest.

Hi im new to this so here i go...

I recently bought Farcry (the first one) for my vista laptop, it says on the box that its vista compatible.
But whenever i boot it up i get a black screen for 5 mins until it eventually works, then every time it loads (at beginning of level or when i die) i have to wait 3 mins for it to start to load and then 2 mins after its loaded.
This is very irritating, boring etc and is spoiling the game for me. I am very sure i have the lastest drivers and i definetly have the 1.4 patch for Farcry... i really dont know what to do.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am a hold off and planned to keep Windows 7 to EOL in 2020. I recently did a Windows 7 to 10 upgrade for a friend and was so delighted with it that I now updated my own system to Windows 10. Very smooth install, update a few drivers and some programs, but working very well. Except for Mail.

What kind of joke is this Windows 7 Mail? It has to be the prettiest mail client I ever used, and the most inept and useless one at that. I install my AT&T email accounts and they configure nicely, but some never sync. I send myself some test mails, they never arrive but do arrive on my Android phone. There is no contact list, but typing a few bits into the To: line offers contact suggestions. This AT&T account I use most for friends and when I get, say, 2 emails and read them, they are gone! I must have hundreds or thousands of old emails, yet NONE show on Win10 email. Nothing to see. I used my Live 2012 server settings for win10 mail, did not work, says outdated settings. One hour later, "Not synced yet". Blue dots moving, no significant data downloading. No way to use with One Drive so I imagine sending 6 full size high res images will be a thing of the past. The gmail account synced well, I have mail going back to 2011 in that folder. My GoDaddy domain name email is working and showing past mail.

I will send a test mail from AT&T account to yahoo account to see if I can even send mail. Syncing, up to date, message present. Yahoo inbox somewhat full but I neve... Read more

Answer:Win 10 Mail, does any of it work properly?

Thunderbird. I went independent of MS after they swapped from Outlook Express to Win Mail then took that away (some of that is STILL there in Win 10!). MS wanted to play 'now you see it, now you don't' with email clients, and I just didn't want to play any more.

Too tiresome working out how to move their randomly distributed email client data around.

Answer:Router won't work properly

Have you tried pressing the reset button on the router? (long press)
I have seen this 'reset button' on several router brands/models like tp-link (tl-wr941n, tl-wr740n old version, tl-wr740n newer version), buffalo draft-N routers, cdrking routers (made in china router brand sold in the Philippines).

if the reset process I described is the same as what you typed in your first post, try to manually change the router ip address.

my wimax modem ip address = 192.168.1.1
so for the tp-link wr-740 router, I use ip address - 192.168.0.1

login to your router and change it. if there's any save button, click it. my router prompts me to reboot the router. after a few seconds, the preferred ip address I have chosen is good for use.

Answer:Qosmio F20-137 would not work properly

Hi,

so, check your RAM with the help of Memtest86, because this sounds like a hardware issue. Or maybe it will better to download a knoppix-live-cd from the internet and try it with this one.
I don?t want to say that you have a hardware failure, you can test it, if you just remove one of your memory modules or exchange the harddisk, to check if one of these components is faulty and causes
the "freeze" of your machine.

If you encounter after all that checks the same problem, then you only the choice to bring your machine to a authorized service partner or your dealer, they have to check your machine then on hardware failures.

Good luck

I've downloaded an album in MP3 format from Amazon, and have burned it to a CD. I've done this successfully many times before, and I have a CD player that will play MP3 format music.But this time the CD refuses to behave normally. I've tried three times to create a useable one, but each time the player has had problems with it.First, the CD player clicks and stops and starts for maybe a minute or more. Then a track number appear in the display, but no sound is audible. Randomly, one or two tracks will play successfully, but then the next one won't. It all seems completely random and changes every time I try to play the CD.I run Windows 7. I'm using good-quality (TDK) disks, and I've tried burning with Windows Media Player and with CDBurnerXP - they give equally unsatisfactory results.The album plays completely normally on my MP3 player. Any ideas on why the CD version is a problem, please?

Answer:MP3 album won't work properly on a CD

Burn an Audio CD from whatever Media player you use on you PC.This will convert the MP3 to standard tracks.

DVD burner
80 & 160gb harddrives over 150gb free
Evga 7950 GX2

As far as i have been able to determine this should be able to work.
the problem: i can install the drivers and boot up my computer, the computer seems to be completly operational until i try to start up a game. When i try to start a game the computer freezes on a blank screen. the game i have tried that freeze are Half life 2 and other source based games, Everquest 2, and 3dmark03, all seem to freeze as soon as they try to load anything 3d, the menus will load, but it freezes when i try to start the game. for some reason i can get Oblivion to run.

when i turn the Nvidia "multi-gpu configuration" from "multi-gpu mode" to "multi-display" mode i can run all of these programs without a single problem.

i have updated my n-force4 chipset to the 6.86 version and updated the bios on my board to the ASUS 1016 bios version, with these settings nvidia's

hi Deathwhisper,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
 
When you try to connect to your wireless network and you get an error "Windows was unable to connect", can you try this article -  Fix ?Windows is Unable to Connect to the Selected Network?
 
As for the "Wimax is not ready" error, you may get this if you don't have an Intel WiFi / WiMax capable device.
 
To find out the brand of your WiFi adapter:
1. Press the Windows Key+R and type devmgmt.msc
2. Expand the Network Adapter Area and locate the brand of your WiFi adapter
 
If you don't see any Intel WiFi adapter, you can safely uninstall the Wimax driver.
 
 
Cheers.

So, you want to tell that your CD/DVD-drive is defective and you cannot read from it nor recover your system.
To download drivers you should take a look here:

Otherwise I suggest you to bring your machine to an authorized service partner for a hardwarecheckup. If your drive is really defective then it should be replaced.

Hey everyone,
I kinda have a problem with my otherwise satisfactory new laptop.
The only thing that doesn't work (except some progs) in Vista is my tv out.

After many hours spent trawling the net, i came upon some different solutions, but none worked.
The A100-812 has a geforce Go7600 that has a tv out svhs plug.
I first tried hooking it up to my tv through my old cinch cable. It took me 2 days before i gave up and bought a brand new svhs cable. That cable now works, and after a hell of a lot of fixing,

I finally have a working tv. Except that its black and white. I used the right click-> NVIDIA control panel, and changed the signal. I live in the netherlands, where B/PAL is the norm. But even while trying all the different types of signals i dont get any color.

Anybody else had this problem and solved it? I downloaded the latestet drivers from nvidia, and I'm getting desperate, i bought the laptop for it to work!
Any suggestion is more than welcome.
Cheers,
Retriever

Answer:TV-out does not work properly with my new Satellite A100-812

Hi there,

the problem is, that the nvidia drivers are still not final. I have a A100 and desktop system and both systems have problems with tv-out. So, it?s probably a clear driver issue.
After lots of investigation I found many postings in the nvidia forum where users are desperate and angry about that issue.
So, the only choice is to change to XP till nvidia will release some working drivers... that?s my way.

Cheers from a disappointed nvidia user

It plays bought audio cd's fine and rips OK. Doesn't appear to play bought DVD's either. Cannot burn to blank CD-R's or RW's or copy any data files to it. Does not seem to recognise any kind of blank disks - clicking noise once disk is inserted.

Can anyone help pls. ?

Mike

Answer:Satellite M30: CD ROM doesn't work properly

Hi

Generally such drive issues occur because of wrong lens calibration.
In this case there is nothing to do and mostly only the drive replacement can solve the problem.
But firstly you should try to remove the drive from the device manager. After the new rebooting the OS should recognize the drive again.
You can also try to run the Troubleshooter in the drive properties.

I extracted the zipfile to my c:\downloads\infrared directory.
whatever i do it does not work now. It worked when I bought it, but I have too much on the system to do a fresh install. Which brings me to another question. Is it possible to re-install windows without losing all your data, etc? I have done this with other Windows systems(95,98). But it seems the Toshiba Recovery disk means wiping everything.

Thanks in advance for any help.
Chris

Answer:Satellite Pro M10 - infrared does not work properly

Hi Chris

you're right about the Recovery - it will wipe the contents of the HDD!

Regardign your IR problems - is this a Toshiba installation in the bottom or did You install WinXP manually and add the drivers later on?

first thanks in advance to anyone who helps me with this problem. I'm jose.
A couple of weeks ago my keyboard on my laptop stop working properly. When i hit the tab button, it won't work. If i hit the shift button on the left side of my keyboard it won't work. I have to click on the shift button on my right side of my keyboard to use the secondary symbols like @#$%^&^&. My backspace button don't work properly and i have to hit it like 0 times so it can delete one letter. So its very frustrating trying to do anything. Please advice as to what I have to do or what virus i have. Thanks once again;-)

Hi i'm new here.
I need some help.
My DVD burning rom doesnt read DVD+RW and DVD-R but it reads CD-RW.
The Thing that happend is that it asks me how to open, i chose to open the map and when i check the size its 0bytes out of 0 bytes
and with the regular CD-RW it's as usual.... it's really strange, and when i check the rom in My Computer it says DVD-RAM.
And i'm using Windows XP and the rom is called (what i read from the rom) DVD Multi Recorder, Super Multi

Thanks
 

Answer:DVD Burning Rom Doesnt work properly

Maybe what you have is actually a cd burner or your dvd burner is defective.

I used to be pretty good at hardware stuff, but things got too complicated. I'll do my best to explain.

I have an HP Pavilion a230n with Athalon 2.08 GHz, 512meg RAM, 128GB HD, etc. It has built in NVDIA GeForce 4MX with 64 MB DDR shared video memory.

I bought a G-Force 5500 PCI with 128 MB ram for a pretty good price and want to use it. I have installed it, and it seems to work pretty good, but I keep on getting this window popping up saying that the system has recovered from a serious error. When I sent the error to Microsoft, this is what it comes up with:

Error type Windows stop error (A message appears on a blue screen with error code information)
Solution available? Yes
What does this error mean? You received this message because a device driver installed on your computer caused the Windows operating system to stop unexpectedly. This type of error is referred to as a "stop error." A stop error requires you to restart your computer.

and then below it:

Have a look at the tutorial Windows Search - Configure and Use. It may help.
