I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have all my class assignments on a CD. Up until today, I have been able to open the CD on my laptop and access my files. Today, when I popped the CD in, there was nothing on it. I put the CD in my other computer, and it reads the CD fine. The only trouble is that computer does not have MS Office on it so opening the files on that computer is just as useless.
Should I restart my computer? (I don't remember seing any notifications that I got new updates)
Is my drive dirty? (if so, what is the best way to clean it?)
Thanks for any advice!

Hi again :)

This one is puzzling me alot :/ I cant seem to get the homegroup working between my desktop and my laptop (both running Windows 7 HE SP1). I create the homegroup with my desktop and used the password provided to connect to it on my laptop. It says they are connected. I can access my laptops libraries on my desktop, but if i try to use my laptop to access the desktops libraries i see this:

I have tried disabling the firewall (Avg) on both computers.. Id also like to add that the desktop computer does not always show up in the network.. it is very inconsistent.. I have no clue what is going on!
Any help?!?

A:Laptop wont work with homegroup

Well start with what it lists there first. Particularity the network location. Also, if you have Windows firewall up try disabling it as well.

I need help. I got fed up with XP so I changed OS back to 2000 on my laptop and my desktop. Now the cd-rw will not work, the pc's both recognize them as their respective titles of write-ables. But if you place a blank disc in both will not see the disc. Also there is no burning due to do burners available. I can still use the cd part to read from if the disc is formatted and has info. I updated the drives and still have no success. Please help.

My friend has a laptop at home, he has Dial up connection, it works on the home PC but not his laptop. It was working but just stopped,

I took the Laptop into work and hooked it up to the wireless connection and the same thing happens. (No connection)

I think there might be a virus on this system stopping it from working.

Does anyone have any tips for stuff to check, Or any programs i can download, Burn to CD and run on his PC.

I was thinking Spybot Serach and destory and maybe Hi-jack this.

If anyone has any pointers please let me know

PS this laptop is running very slow..

I then went to go on the internet and nothing happens. I go to comand prompt and type in..ipconfic/renew and all that stuff but its not reading anything. When I plug in the ethernet nothing pops up on the bottom right which it should do.
I would like it if anyone could help my situation.

Hey everyone,
So today my friend dropped his laptop and said that the computer wont work. So I took it in my hands. The laptop is a Acer 5532-5194. The problem is that when ever i boot the laptop, all the leds turn on ( the power led, the optical drive led) and even the optical drive can eject, but no display! Its just a black screen and nothing appears. I tried to boot it without the battery and just AC adaptor but that didn't make a difference. I swapped hard drives with my own laptop, that didn't work. Not sure what else to try and what the heck the problem is. I even plugged it into a external monitor seeing if that would do any good...NOPE, I was wrong. So could someone else tell me what I could do to fix it and what the problem may be?

my hp laptop has a d/ drive for backup but when I try to back up files I get a backup failed notification

A:hp laptop d/ backup wont work

Hi patrick477,Welcome to the BC forums.Your d/ drive is probably set up for use as a recovery drive, as opposed to a place for backups.Look at START -> COMPUTER and a screen showing your various drives should pop up. Does it show Recover (D:)?Take a look at the HP Customer Care site here and see if it addresses your problem.

My internet wont work, ive tried using both crome and IE but both browsers say that I am not connected to the internet despite the fact my computer says that I am connected to the internet. I know its not a network problem because my other devices are connecting fine. Also I tried connecting to the wifi at home and at school and it still does not work. My laptop is a HP ProBook 6390b and I am using windows 7. This problem started occurring after about 4 months disuse of my laptop which I think might be a factor as to why its not working. I have run windows updater and run a scan with my antivirus but still nothing helps. Thank you for any assistance in advance.

hey, here i have a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo-pro v3405.
I recently installed vista home premium x86 on it, but after all drivers are installed. The only thing failing to start is my Intel 3945abg wireless network card.
I've checked the Unit list, petty I do not recall what it was called, anyway, it wont work. When I run diagnostics, all it says is, use the pre-made button to turn on your wireless network card. Guess what, I tried all the buttons for the wireless, but no. Won't work.
I did work fine in Xp though.

I used to have a laptop connected with wireless (netgear WG511) through a router (D-link) to my main computer with the internet.

Yesterday I got a new laptop, upgrading from an IBM r40 to an r52, and was wondering how to get the wireless network working again. The r52 appears to have a wireless card built in, and can find networks, as it can find my neighbours one (but cant connect)

I tried installing the Netgear external wireless card, but that didnt do anything except make a new network connection, which also didnt work.

If there is any other information thats needed, please let me know cos I really dont have much idea at all...

Hi everyone,

I recently bought a new Dell laptop Inspiron 1545 with Windows 7 64-bit, Pentium(R) Dual core CPU T4200 @ 2.0GHz (2CPU's), 4096MB RAM. The graphics card is an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4330

The main problem is that the Sims 3 game wont load on it. I put it in and I can hear it whizzing round however nothing happens and it doesnt recognise it. There are no error messages or anything.

I have used the game on a previous Dell laptop and it worked fine so the game is alright, also, I have played other games on my new laptop and its fine. On the other hand it doesnt recognise certain DVD's either. I thought the spec of my laptop was adequate for the Sims 3 but I could be wrong. Any help would be much appreciated!

I am running a HP L2000 special edition windows XP. My touch pad works fine; I think it is sp/2. My optical mouse from Targus is old and was working until today. I am searching for a driver update but so far nothing seems to be working. Optic is fine. Love the mouse. It has a scroll wheel on top with rt and lft buttons; s/n B0508039183. I do not know if you call that a wheel ( I thought wheel was on bottom). there is nothing but light coming out of the bottom. anyway, I know it is an HID device that may not need a driver per se; but the microsoft windows HID upgrade is not working. I paid for (cough) driver tool, driver navigator etc and went to the hewlett packard site where it suggested I download another drivertool - then I realized I shouldnt keep paying.

Can anyone help me get this old mouse continue working?

your trying to install the x64 version right? the 32 bit version doesnt do this, and there is a fix for the x64 version that requires you to edit a bunch of files. Sorry I don't have the info but its do-able but I just went 32 bit since the iMac can only use 4 gigs RAM anyway.

Microsoft service pack 3 - for what - is this a Vista Service Pack or Office Service Pack (I'm not an expert at all the latest releases - and cant find a Vista Sp3 - office 2003 SP3 - but that was released in 2007 i think )

try a restore to before service pack 3 and see if that now allows the switch to work

hi i just got a new laptop today im using steam it says i need to download flash player ive installed it looked it up on add and remove programs but i cant use it and it wont run please help

A:Adobe flash player wont work on my new dell xps 15 laptop

Hi Rambo,

Did you ever find the Flash Player in the Add/Remove programs view?
Please uninstall the Flash player, reboot the machine, then download and reinstall it again.

Is it steam that isn't recognizing the Flash Plugin? Because the Flash plugin is only really used in the Browser-view of steam and shouldn't affect it's functionality in any other way.

If both are installed and problem persists after reboot, also Repair steam from Add/Remove programs after Flash has been installed, to make sure that Steam knows it's installed from the start.

Otherwise get back to us with more information, what error codes you get, where it won't load etc etc.

I have an HP G72 laptop running windows 7 home premium. yesterday when i was on the computer all of a sudden screen turned white and the only button that would work was power button. i held it down and shut off computer. when i turned it back on it goes through the usual boot process up to where i have to enter password for user profile. when i hit enter it will start showing my desktop icons like normal and then just go blank again. when i try to boot in safe mode it goes through the same process except when it starts displaying desktop icons it stops and automatically shuts back down and trys to boot up again in normal mode. if i try to restore it back to a restore point it says there are none available. Any input on what might be causing these problems will be greatly appreciated.

You HDD may be failing. On another computer download the ISO image for Seatools in my signature. Burn the image to CD using IMGBurn also in my signature. Boot off of the newly created CD and run the Short and Long tests on the drive. If either tests fails, the HDD needs to be replaced.

Right, so my laptop turns on and the Acer splash screen appears - all good. Thdn there is a black screen with a flashing cursor... then the screen dies, and I'm back to sqaure one.

I'm fairly new with computers, but I've looked on about 7 websites on how to troubleshoot this infinite reboot problem. Each website directed me toward Advanced Boot Options, okay fine... only problem is that when I press F8 for advanced boot options, my laptop just goes back on it's infinite reboot track.

So far I've tried reseting the CMOS... which is the only thing I can do, courtesy of Acer and their ****** computers. Please help :(.

My Dell Inspiron Laptop which runs on Windows Vista will not start properly, the screen will go black after loading, this is before i can get to the log on stage. There is only a cursor which i can move.

I then started Startup Repair and it performed the checks, but my computer still wouldn't start. I then tried System Restore which didn't have a backup. I clicked the link to create a backup, but it said 'Your computer is running in a limited diagnostic state'. I have tried running the Windows Vista disk and it doesn't change anything. I have tried every method I know of, but I cannot get my computer working. Is there any other way, if you know please help me.

One last thing you can try is to press F8 while booting and on the next menu, select the 'Last Known Good' option

For some reason, my logon background image isnt showing up anymore, and when I try to change back to the way I had done it, regedit wont run, I've searched the forums for an answer, with no luck. And when I go to click grant admin full control, it brings up an open with menu, so I need a command script to grant admin to certain files again.

Windows 7 home premium 64 bit.

Please help, and thanks. And no, I dont have any viruses or malware, I take good care of my computer.

A:Regedit wont run, and grant admin full control context menu wont work

Hello ElliottGenocide

Firstly do you have a system restore point available from before these problems occurred - System Restore
Can you remember what it was you changed in the registry.
Have a look through this,it has a copy of the default background and an application to change the logon background without having to touch the registry - Log On Screen - Change
I would also run this - SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker see if that helps.

I'm in a real mess since Lavasoft AdAware crashed my windows 7 home premium edit. 64bit after its 1st initial mandatory reboot. Everything is frozen, nothing can be clicked on or done in any way, shape or form. Even 'Esc' and 'Ctrl-Alt-Del wont work. PC must be shutdown manually. It also wont uninstall in safe mode. Once in safe mode the 1st time I got windows telling me that it cant uninstall this software in safe mode (this was done by its own uninstaller, and by the windows one, and by the Revo Pro uninstaller.) the 2nd time (reboot) it told me it wasnt installed properly. the 3d time it can't install in safe mode again. What now please? Anyone have an idea?

Thank you

A:Lavasoft AdAware crashed win7-Ctrl-alt-del wont work & it wont uninstall in safe mode

Sorry solved it. I'll write the answer should anyone need it someday. I believe my solution can help for other similar cases besides Ad-Aware.
A minute after I posted this a thought came to mind: Go into safe Mode and use msconfig.exe. So I ran it and unchecked everything to do with Ad-Aware. TO be even more sure I checked off not to run also other things that I knew would not be needed like anything to do with Apple, or Adobe. Afterwhich, doing a proper reboot Windows did actually start normally--no crash and I was able to uninstall it. Slowly I put back other services and start-up items and all is working fine now--so far at least ;-) Thanks for those who took a look and I hope it will help some people in the future.

Me and my nephew wanted to lan play a couple of games. The first time every thing went smoothly. Both computers communicated fine how ever after that they now refuse to communicate. When I try to test the access it now stats on both that we don't have admin permission. I tride every thing I could think of. Updateing drivers, changeing network setings but nothing works. We both have windows 7 home premium 64 bit. Mine is a desktop, his is a laptop. While connected to the network we both have internet just the computers wont comunicate. What am I missing. I have even manually put in the ip, subnet mask and ports manualy.

Takes me to a blue screen and I tries to system restore but that also won't load and go through. Help please?
I went to advanced options and pulled up the box you type **** in butI don't know what to put km it to make windows boot!

A:windows 8 wont boot and system restore wont work

You need to be much more specific about what your problem is. I can't tell at all from your post what's really happening, and neither will anybody else. What exactly happens? What exact messages do you get? What "advanced options" are you talking about? Also, it appears this site's profanity filter has blocked something in your post. Using such language is not helpful.

Might be a failing Hard drive. Get to your bios and see if there is any diagnostics there to do a hard drive test. On some motherboards its delete on others its F2. If there is no diagnostics on the bios i would make a USB bootable diagnostics and do that.
I just had the same problems and found out the hard way that it was a hard drive.

So I just re-installed my Windows 7 and re-formatted my disk after getting the virus Win32:Sality. However, after I installed my graphics drivers and restarted my computer, the taskbar and icons wouldn't show. I can see my cursor and can move it. I can right click and get options as well. If I press Ctrl+Alt+Del, the screen just goes black. I can still see and move my cursor. This happened after I installed my graphics drivers.

EDIT: Safe mode works fine.

The last two weeks I have had problems with my work computer. I basically can not open most web sites, or they will opwn painfully slow.
I also can not use any web serch engines, like google or yahoo. They all eventually time out when performing a search.

We use Trend Micro as our anti virus software, and I know most here in the office all have the same worm called:
Trend Micro is currently putting the infected files in quarantine. I'm the only one with the above problem though.

I do use Advanced Windows Care to keep my computer running clean.

Two weeks ago, when I first had this problem, I got a new IP address from our IT administrator, and my computer worked fine for a few days, before turning to its old ways.

Not sure if this is malware, a network problem or what. Any help is greatly appreciated.

A:Search engines wont work/web pages wont open

It seems that no browser will work. I've tried IE8, Safari and Chrome.
It often loads the banners on a website, but the rest (the main part) loads really really slowly.

Could it be something to do with active x or java script having difficulty loading?

for almost a year my computer has not allowed me to open anything without choosing wat application i want to open it with. i have to right click and choose run in order to get anything to open. Now i tried to download itunes and when i tried to run it it said the application was not found. Does anybody know whats wrong??

A:Solved: files wont open and downloads wont work

Try this fix: EXEFIX

Unzip the fix and extract the .reg file to the desktop. Double-click it to merge it to the registry. Note that you need to be an Administrator to apply this fix.

Reboot the computer.

If the fix only opens as a text file, right-click it and select Open With > Choose Program... Then, select the Registry Editor.

If the Registry Editor is not in the list, browse to C:\WINDOWS and select regedit.

Hi first time poster

Full specs: MSI Z68a-GD80 i5 2500k Gtx680 Asus Hitachi Deskstar 1tb (boot) KingstonSSD120gb (games)

So last night I shrunk my HDD partition by 100gb, intending to dual boot W8. Never got round to installing it, but when I turned on my PC tjis morning it won't boot. It shows the manufacturer logo then goes to a black.screen with a blinking underscore

I decided to try putting in my W7 disk in to repair, but it starts loading windows filesthen givesme an error about not bring able to communicate with a device.0xc0000009 I think. I thought my HDD might be the issue, but it does it also when my HDD is unplugged and just my SSDpluggedin

Worried my PC is bricked at this point cause I can't boot or repair from disk. Advice appreciated!

A:Need Help. W7 wont boot after resizing partition. Recovery wont work.

Try a linux boot disc and see if you can change the partition size a tiny bit with that. Gparted is your best bet:

GParted -- Download

If you can, that may fix the error.

Anything on this page would work actually. And the prices are not too bad.

Buying ram off ebay is not usually a good idea, if you do make sure you have a very liberal return policy wth it. and buy only from a reputable company. Buying from an individual is not a good idea for computer components at ebay.

I was running Ubuntu Linux then decided to change back to Windows XP I was happily running the Windows set-up disc to reformat the entire hard drive After this was done the set-up disc went on to copy over a load of files and then went into a reboot the screen went black OK but then everything just hung In the end I went to power off intending to start again The computer would not power off except by my pulling out the battery and supply and wont wont power off boot Laptop cable If I reconnect the cable Laptop wont boot and wont power off I can power on with the power button after which I hear the fan and the optical drive being read but then it just stalls - nothing on the screen cannot get in bios and still refuses to power off It quot s either a big coincidence or the three symptoms no screen no bios no power-off are all a result of the failure to self-reboot during the windows set-up I have removed the CMOS battery and left it out overnight but to no avail Can anyone help My laptop is a HP Compaq NX Thanks

A:Laptop wont boot and wont power off

The first question is hardware or software? That this happened in the middle of a Ubuntu to XP conversion is interesting, but may be purely coincidental. It could be a straight-up hardware problem that just happened to occur at this time.

So, the way to determine this is to try to boot using some kind of media. XP disk, Ubuntu Live, Hiren's, whatever. It if boots, hardware is possibly good. If not, hardware is bad.

If hardware is bad, you WANT the hard drive to be bad. Everything else costs more money than the computer may be worth.

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??

A: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.

Dear All
I'm using Dell Vostro 3350 now. After I upgrade Win 10 Pro, the Laptop Speaker doesn't work and can't give output any sound. But if I put my earphone, all of the sound include song work.
I use PC Doctor and scan the computer hardware but there is nothing found error on hardware and software. I also use windows update to scan all of the drivers, but it can't found any update drivers of this laptop. So what can I do next to fix the problem?
Thank you for member's attention

A:Laptop Speaker Doesn't Work But Using Earphone Work

Hello. Dell does not recommend installing Win10 on the Vostro 3350 model. Dell says, "If you choose to upgrade, some features, applications, and connected devices may not work as expected." To get the best performance from your laptop, revert it back to the previous operating system. You can google to find instructions for undoing Win10.
If you want to continue with Win10, then try to install the IDT Win8 audio driver using compatibility mode.
1. Click the link to go to the driver's page. Download and save the driver to your desktop or any convenient location on the hard drive. 2. Double click on the new folder to extract (unzip) the driver files.3. The extractor wizard will create a new folder for the driver files. It will be at "c:\dell\drivers\xxxxxx". Write down the exact location that the wizard creates. 4. If the driver begins to install automatically, halt (cancel) the installation.5. Browse to the driver files on the hard drive (the location you wrote down).6. Find the "setup.exe" file.7. Right click on setup.exe to open the context menu.8. Select the Properties.9. Select the Compatibility tab.10. Check the box "run this program in compatibility mode for"... Win8.

Hi Nelly I also have an Lenovo its a different model than yous is but I can make as many copies of the recovery discs
as I want . You could make a systems image which would be a lot better than the recovery discs as with them you will always have the bloated software that comes with Lenovo models saying that you would need a lot more space than your 16gb usb drive .

I am running XP pro.
I purchased my Cruzer mini 1.0GB, plugged it into a usb on the main computer but could not get Explorer to recognize the drive. It will light up occasionally and sound is heard (dum dum + dah dum)plugging in and unplugging. It does have info on it in which I added by plugging into my laptop. I also renamed the drive Cruzer_1GB. It has no problems at all when used on my laptop or my spare pc (which all use xp pro) to exchange info.
My main computer recognizes my Cruzer Titanium 512MB and assigns it a drive letter. When I place both Cruzers side by side in laptop or my spare pc, it recognizes both, assigns different drive letters and exchanges info with no problems.
Obviously, its must be a setting of some sort. Please help.

I have dictionary called the Unified Medical dictionary English-Arabic

anyway, i have the ISO file
i installed it on Win7 x32 with no problem

but i tried to install it on Winx64 but it says an error like "the setup file is not compatible with Win7 x64"

I tried to search for the x64 version but i had no success, google sometimes becomes lame u know....
I tried to just copy the already installed dictionary folders to Win7x64 but it didnt open cuz it seems that it needs to be installed

So is there any way to like edit that setup.exe file or something to work on x64 version cuz it seems if i can just bypass that step it will work

or like a work around the "copy whole folders" and get it to work
I really need some help with it,
thanks in advance,

A:Is there a work around if Win7 x32 setup file wont work on Win7 x64

sometimes 32 bit applications have 16 bit installer and that won 't work on 64 bit system, but if this is not the case did you try to run installer in compatibility mode? (right click/properties/compatibility). Installer generally does three things: creates program directory, copies some DLL files to system directory and writes some data into registry. You could trace those things in Win32 installation and try manually recreate this on 64bit machine, but who knows if it will work. Also search for portable version, those don't require installation and frankly now a days I don't use anything else but portable applications unless there is no other way.

ok i got this computer that i had for a long time but i restarted the computer not to long ago and now i cant burn cd's every time i put a blank cd in it says that i have to insert a blank audio cd but they are and i go to my computer to open it there and it says that is not accesible what can i do to fix the problem?

A:my cd wont work

You may need to do one or both of these two things:
1. re-install the drivers for the drive - do you have the disc that came with the computer (it will have the brand of the CD drive on it - Lite-on, Pioneer, LG for example). If you do insert it and run it - it will install the drivers for you, you may need to update them or ensure that you are getting the latest Windows updates as they often include driver updates.
If you don't have the disc - go to Device Manager (R click on My Computer > Properties > Hardware tab > Device Manager button) look for DVD/CD ROM drives in the list, click on the + sign to expand and R click on the name of the drive > Properties > Update drivers and follow the prompts. If it can't update the drivers from there, you can get the make and model of your CD drive from there and go to the manufacturer's website and download and install the latest drivers.
2. delete the registry entries for upper and/or lower filters - see here for instructions.
Follow the instructions to the letter - don't play with anything else in your registry unless you know what you are doing - registry errors can make a good computer into a good doorstop!
If when you get to where the filters are supposed to be and they aren't there - then you don't have them and that won't be the cause of your problem - don't go looking for them elsewhere in the registry.

Hi There

My CD-RW has stopped working. Everything was fine until I used a program called Imagemixer.vcd that came with my digital camera. The software did not recognise my drive (LITE-ON LTR-52246S) so I visited the home page for an update. Did that and bingo my drive was recognised. Trouble is now it stutters and wont read or write properly. Have tried uninstalling software but no joy. Took the drive back to my local PC shop and it works fine. They say its a software fault. Any suggestions

Ive recently just purchased a new motherboard AZN266-VM, a new CPU AMD athlon 2000xp. and a new case ATX. i aslo have used HDD and Cddrives of an old computer.

Ive hooked it all up and nothing!

The Motherboard LED is on so there is power getting through, there are no beeps, which isnt a good sign. There is no case fan but that shouldnt really matter.

On power up should the CPU fan start spinning?

Also, in the manual it says

'c, System power (if u are using an ATX (i am) power supply, you need to switch on the power supply aswell as pressing the power switch on the front of the chassis.)

Does this mean there is a power switch somewher i dont know about?

Any help would be grateful

So far i have found that it works on another pc in the house but not my game rig (main pc) so i think it might be my motherboard because it has an onboard sound card (my Motherboard is the Asus A8N-E)

I have a cheap Cd rw, I dont know the brand. The problem is, is my new Dell dimension E310 doesnt recognize it as a Cd rw just a CD reader or player. I fixed it once before on my comp before this but that computer was a 7 year old piece of crap that magically worked just fine until I started college and needed a new anyways im off track. I cant figure out how to fix it on my new computer, the old computer had windows xp pro on it, complements of p2p networking. Thanks for any help you can give.

A:Cd RW wont work

"I have a cheap Cd rw, I dont know the brand." sounds like you have your answer and that is that your dell also does not know the brand and therefore cannot recognize it. Buy new and don't bring forward prior problems for safety sake, and don't buy "cheap" and expect it to outlive "good"!

A:Help PC wont work

You can check to see if the computer has onboard video by verifying a blue VGA port on the back of the tower, connected to the motherboard and not an expansion card slot. If this is the case, the easiest way to diagnose the problem would be to try a video card, if you have another compatible one lying around. The second thing I would do is swap hard drives. If you have reformatted an older drive so many times, it may be failing.

YOu should be able to uninstall the drivers/software from add/remove programs. If not boot into safe mode and go to device manager and remove all things related to the camera. Look under imaging devices, unknown devices and under USB controllers. Then reinstall the software first and then plug in the camera.

Hi lisaf24, Welcome to TSG !!
Try a CD-ROM cleaner. They are cheap. The eye will get dirty very easily. Also make sure the CD's you are using are clean also.
