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 a Dell 8100 XPS and when the hard drive went, I restored from an August backup (using Microsoft's Windows 10 backup) afetr replacing the drive. Unfortunately, I had a problem with the Ethernet adapter so eventually, I reinstalled Windows 10 fresh. The only major problem is that the machine recognizes the drive ( Liteon iHOS104) as a reader.

This is possibly because the 8100 does not officially support Windows 10 (according to Dell).

Is there any way to get it recognized as a writer?

Hello Good morning! I really need help on this. My hitachi hdd cannot be detected by my windows but I can play it smoothly in my tv. I bet my hdd is faulty and I just wanna recover my files.

What do I need to do to recover my files?

A:My Hitachi hdd is not working in Windows but works in TV.

Do you have the latest Hitachi drivers? (

Have you tried plugging the SATA cable into a different slot. (could be a dead connector, try a different lead)

Also, have a look in device manager and see if there are any "Yellow Error Marks"

another good way to check would be to boot in to the bios, and see if it is registering anything plugged into the sata ports.

I have bought my friend a pair of turtle beach X11's for christmas and given them to him early.
He's tried setting them up on his hitachi tv model no. l19h01ub
When using xbox he can only hear the microphone conversation as that doesn't use the tv volume.
He lives quite far away and I don't have time to go round and look for myself.
Is there an option in the tv to control volume out-put or something of that sort?
Or does he need an adapter for this type of tv?
He's using the HDMI from xbox to tv and plugging the red and white audio cable into the back of the tv and getting no game volume?
Hope this makes sense to someone and they can make sense of it to me!
Thanks, James.

I have a Hitachi Visiondesk 2630, model number PCX7DL7HM618P.
This computer was given to me by my doctor, it says "iPhysicianNet" on the front of the monitor.
I am having a problem getting my "Altec Lansing multimedia computer speaker system ATP3" to work as an external speaker system. The computer has speakers built in to the monitor, but I am not able to control the volume, as the icon in the taskbar has disappear for the volume. I tried disabling the driver to get the external speakers to work, but it won't work. The built-in speakers override the ones that are external. I know I have the speakers plugged into the output port.
I'm so confused. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:External Speakers Not Working on Hitachi Visiondesk 2630

You can get the volume icon put back in your system tray by the clock by going to Control Panel/Sounds and Audio Devices under the general tab put a check box in Place Volume Icon in the Taskbar then go to the Advanced button and choose the Drop Down menu and choose Desktop Stereo Speakers or whatever type of speakers the Altec Lansings are. Be sure you are plugging them into the Green Audio input on the back of the computer.

I posted this yesterday but now I can't find it. None of my dvd's that I burn work, I uninstalled all burning software and even used the Roxio and Nero clean tools to ensure it was all gone. Now, I tried burning a dvd and it appeared to be working but then got stuck halfway. I tried another but this time it 'simulated' writing but there was no activity light and of course it is empty. When I tried before with Nero it gave the error unable to close using disc at once.

I've searched high and low for a solution for this problem. I've already scanned for viruses and cleaned the system. I am at a total loss of what to do now. Any help would be most appreciated.

So, went out and bought a Sony DVD CD burner and guess what, same deal. It won't even burn either DVD R or RW's.

A:DVD Writer not working

Well you can't burn CD R discs (because they're read only)

Anyway, what program are you using to burn the brand new blank discs?
Have you tried other discs?

And what are you burning exactly? Because it must fit on the disc too
Try burning one picture to the new blank disc (just to test it)

I have a cd rom , a dvd rom and a dvd writer in my pc. Now all of a sudden none of them are working. The reason is that windows says that there is a problem with the roms because windows cannot find it. I then removed the roms in device manager and I scanned for any hardware changes. All of the roms are seen by windows and then installed and immediately there appears a yellow exclamation mark and it says that windows succesfully loaded the drivers for the device but cannot find the hardware device (code 41). I installed a new driver for the via chipset hoping that this would correct the problem but no help. The roms are seen correctly in the bios , even if I uninstall them and swop them around. everything seems ok , only in windows the problem is there.

Will the drive read a commercial CD? Is it just ones that you burned that it will not read?

Barring a hardware failure in the drive (and this is possible), or an error code for the drive in the Device Manager, go to the Device Manager, RIGHT click the entry for the drive and then LEFT click "uninstall" (DO NOT click the box to uninstall the drivers). Then restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall the drive. If there was a Windows status corruption this will fix it.

A:cd-re writer drive not working

The Windows XP CD writer can be a little flaky, try Deepburner, a freeware CD burner.

Also the safest way to burn a CD is in one session. When you do it in multiple sessions some of the prior sessions can become unreadable.

1.) Have you tried inserting a needle or pin into the small hole on the door of the CD writer? That will eject the drive. If it still doesn't open automatically after initially opening using the pin/needle, there may be
something physically wrong with the Drive.

2.) Have you tried Microsoft's fix for the "media not readable" issue?

My 4 year old Dell vostro 1400, a carryover from my son's college days, has stopped reading and writing DVDs, though it reads and writes the CDs perfectly.

I replaced the DVD drive with a new Optiarc internal DVD writer. This new Optiarc has worked for about six months and then again same problem not reading and writing DVDs only.

Is the problem with the DVD writer or with the laptop? I am apprehensive to replace the DVD writer again.

By the way the OS is Windows XP professional.

A:Dell Vostro 1400 laptop internal DVD writer not reading/writing DVDs..

Normally it can be attributed to the laser burning out. The drive uses a different wavelength to do CDs than DVDs. They often don't burn out like a light bulb but just can't do the higher wavelengths.

Optical drives are notorious for sudden failure. On a desktop it's no big deal - a $20 repair. But a laptop is expensive to do replacements on. I'd be bumming too.

Curious (dealing with a similar issue with a laptop here):

hi, went to burn a cd tonight and neither real player nor easy cd creator is recognising my built in cd-r. I think its samsung but cant remember how to locate name of device. My boyfriend moved pc recently and took out leads but surely if its built-in that shouldnt matter, although its only since he moved it that its gone nuts.

A:help, my cd writer is suddenly not working. (hope this is right board)

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

Is the cd drive detected by Windows?

I.E can you see the device in my computer?

Go HERE and read my post. You will notice a link to the free Everest programme. It will give you lots of info about your system.

Hello All,

I have re-installed WIN XP PRo on my pc.

Everything works but my Pioneer DVR106 DVD±RW Writer.

It is recongnized as a "Mass Storage Controller" in Windows Device Manager.

I had the drive working before my reinstalation. I was running Win XP Pro as well.

I have done everything possible. (Uninstal, Reinstal, Removed the drive physically, etc)

I'm at my wits end.

Anyone have any ideas?

Worse case scenario....what if I purchase another Pioneer drive?

Thank you all for looking.

I'm trying to figure out the best way to permanently delete Microsoft Office Document Image Writer & Microsoft XPS Document Writer. Getting rid of them once doesn't seem to be enough, as they always reappear. I guess Windows Update brings them back. I've found a couple of vbs lines that can be added to the login script, but they involve running prnmngr.vbs, which is apparently very long and can cause system delays. Maybe there's something simpler?

If this has been covered before, I'm sorry to repeat it. I did some forum searches and came up empty. Thanks for your time!

I'm considering the Ideapad 510 15" (Part Number 80SR0055CF).  i5-6200U, 4GB onboard RAM, 1TB 5400RPM hard drive.
Can I upgrade the RAM myself? I see some 510 models have 4GB onboard + a 4GB DIMM so I'm assuming that if I get the 4GB onboard they'll be an empty DIMM slot I could add RAM to, is that the case?  If so, what's the max memory I could add?
What about the hard drive, can it be upgraded/replaced?  At some point I would probably want to put in an SSD.
If someone could link to the hardware maintenance manual that would be really useful, then I could check these things myself.  I can't find the manual for this particular laptop.  Thank you!

A:G62 notebook - recovering from unsuccessful attempt to upgra...

Craig3428 Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!Wish I had good news for you, but I don't. While Microsoft tells you that there is no risk in the Win10 Upgrade, because they let you believe that you can always revert back to your original OS and setup within 30 days, the ugly fact of the matter is that the Win10 GoBack function has proven to be unreliable -- and when it fails, it can leave machines in a corrupted state -- which doesn't always happen, but it does happen often enough to be a problem and you won't get any warning in advance that it is going to trash your PC!So, while you DO have Win7 back, most likely, something got corrupted in the process. To further complicate matters, while I would recommend using HP Recovery Media to restore your PC to its original condition. That would erase the entire drive, format the drive, and install the OS, the drivers, and the HP utilities.Unfortunately, there is no HP Recovery Media linked to the HP Product Page for your PC. This could be an oversight by HP, or it could also mean that HP no longer stocks the recovery media for your PC. They no long stock recovery media for the older PCs.Since HP no longer provides Recovery Media for your model, a couple of other sites you should check are: and that the first thing Recovery Media does is reformat the hard drive -- erasing everything from the drive. So, BEFORE you attempt this, you need to save off all the files and data you want to retain.Good Luck

Hi,I've been considering buying a new GPU for my SFF M92p.I currently have 1GB 620 GT nvidia GPU & I would like to upgrade to a 2GB GPU.  i7-3770 Cpu 3.4GHzWindows 1016GB DDR3 RAM1T HDPSU - 240 Watt I need professional assistance on : - Can i find 2GB GPU to use on this current system @ 240 ?- If not, would i need to change my PSU ? And where do i buy such a unit ? What's it called ? [It's for gaming]    

A:Lenovo ThinkCentre M92p 2988-E2U [Video card upgra...

The GTX 750 Ti could work with a SFF M92p.   Upgrade to the latest BIOS beforehand, CD ISO method is most reliable.   Check that there aren't any taller heatsinks on the motherboard that could interfere with the graphics card (refer to photos of the card.)   
Since your system is older, to ensure the necessary airflow, clean the front air intake and fan with vacuum and canned compressed air, jam the fan with a cable tie or similar so it can't spin and over-speed.  Same for CPU fan and heat sink, and vac the intake and rear exhaust of the power supply.  

I can confirm that this MSI brand low-profile  GTX 750 Ti 2GB  card works perfectly in my M93p SFF machine without upgrading the PSU:   MSI N750-Ti-2GD5TLP
Measuring the power draw running Prime95 (CPU benchmark) , FurMark (GPU benchmark) , charging mobile phone via USB and copying large files at the same time , it stays below 190W.   Have been running this for several hours. I have also been playing Fallout 4 (FullHD, ultra textures, 60 FPS) for 100 hours without any problems.   As the case is quite compact, I was worried about the temperature but it stays below 80C for the GPU at full power over extended periods of time (about 25C ambient temp in the room). 
Installation is ok. Just mount the low profile bracket and move the PCIe 1x WiFi card (if you have one) into another slot.  Preferably leave an empty slot next to the graphics card.

Hi @Gneiss, Welcome to the HP Support Community! I understand from your posts that you are having an issue with your HP Pavilion 15-p050ca Notebook and a error message Display drive Intel HD Graphics Drivers for Windows stopped responding and has successfully recovered. I would uninstall all that are listed in the Device Manager. Click the arrow next to Display Adapters to expand that category. Right-click on Graphics and select Update Driver Software if more than 1 Graphics adapter do 1 at a time. Choose the option to Search Automatically for Updated Driver Software.The Notebook should find and automatically install the updated driverAfter the installation is complete, restart your Notebook. It should automatically update with a new Driver and software. If you need to update the Display Adapters. I would follow the method of right clicking on them in the Device Manager only. This will update the drivers on your system to work with Windows 10. Please get back to me how this goes. If this post helps you to resolve the issue you can click the Thumbs up icon to show gratitude! Please click the Accept as Solution, to the right of the Thumbs up icon, if your issues is resolved.   Thanks.

Hello, I'm having trouble upgrading Windows 7 Pro to Windows 10.  The installation (manual and automatic) fails due to the incompatibility of ProtectTools Security Manager (according to Microsoft). This is also described in a document I found on the HP website: .Before I can uninstall ProtectTools, I need to unistall other HP tools, like Device Access Manager,... And there lies my problem: how do I uninstall Device Access manager? It's not listed under 'Programs and features'. I tried uninstall tools like CCleaner and Revo Unistaller, but they can't find it either. I have installed the latest version of ProtectTools, via the SoftPaq Download Manager and disabled all features in ProtectTools, as far as I can tell. How do I uninstall the ProtectTools suite? Best regards,Wim.

I found a way to remove it, on this website: Run: MsiExec.exe /X{55B52830-024A-443E-AF61-61E1E71AFA1B} That fixed it for me.

The DVD/CD writer is supposedly "Plug and Play". It will read both CDs and DVDs but there is no activity when I try to write. Using NERO I have done an auto-detect drive and it recognizes it. When I start to burn the cd NERO proceeds as if it is writing and even verifies that the burn was succesful. But the drive never even spins the disc?

The drive is a Pioneer DVR-A08xla

I am running windows 98se on an atholon 1700+ chip.

Does anyone know what I'm missing? Or if I should take this to the software forum?

A:Help please..I replaced a cd writer with a Pioneer DVD Writer

Check and make sure you have the correct firmware. Also for W98 some DVD writers require additional drivers.

My Dell inspiron 3542 laptop speakers are not working,but 3.5 mm jack is working fine.
Please help me out.

A:My Dell inspiron 3542 laptop speakers are not working,but 3.5 mm jack is working fine.

Hello.The problem could be either in the hardware or the software, so you need to test each. Perform the tests below -- it doesn't matter which one you do first.

To test the speakers, perform the Quick Audio Check in the ePSA test. If the speakers fail the test then they have failed or become disconnected. (Click the link for instructions on how to run the test.)

To test the software, switch between the Realtek audio driver and the Windows native driver. [This test assumes that your laptop has the Realtek audio driver. If you get to step 2 and do not see "Realtek High Definition Audio" then go to the Dell support page for your model and download the Realtek driver that Dell provides for the version of Windows that the laptop is running.]
1. Open the Device Manager (find it in the Control Panel, or type devmgmt.msc into the search box).2. Expand the "Sound, video & game controllers" and right click on "Realtek High Definition Audio".3. Select to "Update Driver Software".4. Click on "Browse my computer for driver software".5. Click "Let me pick from a list of drivers on my computer".6. Put a check in the box "Show compatible hardware" if not already checked.7. In the list of devices, click "High Definition Audio" (the native driver).8. Click "Next".9. On the Update Driver Warning box, click "Yes" (install the driver). 10. Restart the laptop if prompted. If not prompted, then no need to restart.[To get back to the Realtek driver, do it again but reverse the names in steps 2 and 7.]
If the speakers work correctly only with the native driver, then the Realtek driver is buggy. If the speakers work correctly only with the Realtek driver, then the native driver is buggy.

If the speakers worked during the Quick Audio Check (above) but do not work with either driver, it could be that the sensing mechanism in the headphone jack has failed, making Windows think that there is a plug in the jack when there is not. There is a full explanation of that issue in the Headphone Jack FAQ.

Hello everyone,
Okay so I have this Dell XPS L502X Laptop which I purchased in 2012. The Laptop came with Microsoft Windows 7 Home Edition.
Earlier its HDMI output to my Sony LED used to work fine.
But few months ago, as offered by Microsoft, I upgraded my Laptop OS from Windows 7 Home edition to Windows 10 home edition.  Since upgrade everything has worked just fine except, I do not receive HDMI output to my television.
I have tried searching for online solutions but not sure what could be the problem? Can someone please guide me in right direction? 
Thank you.

I tried to burn an audio cd the other night using neo, i got an error whilst it was trying to burn, i cant remember wha the error was but i tried to burn another cd, this time the completed bit went upto 6% then decided not to do anything, i left it for a while and i ended up having to ctrl,alt+ del the task, then it just jung up, and it wudnt eject the cd when i pressed the button, so i had to end up restarting the computer. It has now done this about 3/4 times.

Ive just tried to copy a game to see if it would allow me to do that, but i get an error saying, Unrecoverable Read Error, then the name of my dvd reader, then error reading data.

Does anyone have any suggestions or shud i be looking at taking the computer back.

Thanks in advance.

I have a normal dvd drive and a Dvd re-writer underneath it.
I recently formatted my pc, and i downloaded a programme for a freind, and evertime i put a dvd into it, it says Erase CD, i do it to see what happens..and it continues saying it.
I try draging and dropping and it says "Windows encontered a problem while trying to copy this"
Another weird thing i realised, in explorer it says "dvd rom" when i put a dvd in it, it turns to CD rom.
When i put a actual CD 700meg in, it lets me copy fine!
Ive tryed uninstalling and taking out and putting the ribbon back in and nothing solves it.
The file im trying to copy is 1.2 gig, and it wont pick up DvD's please help, is a

After reformatting the PC, you did load all the motherboard drivers again?

Otherwise you may have some issues with the default Windows drivers that would be substituted.

I have a CD writer, CD-R media, DVD-R media, video files on my computer that are AVI files(from a DVD player) and I have Nero burning software. I have burned VHS video on my CD writer. What prevents a CD writer from being able to burn a DVD if the media is DVD and the file is the proper format (AVI)?

A:what are differences between CD writer and DVD writer

Well you're in luck if you have an APEX DVD Player in your home. APEX DVD-Player's can play AVI and MPG files on regular CD's, but you will not be able to use a CD-Burner to burn to a DVD. Why? No one Maybe someday, someone will find a loop-hole, I doubt it lol, but hey, you never know.

A:Hitachi DFT

When you boot with the floppy, it still goes to Windows (or whatever OS you have)?

When the laptop boots, use the boot menu hotkey (F12 for newer ThinkPads for example) to select the floppy drive as the boot device or alternatively, go into BIOS setup and makue sure the floppy device comes before the hard drive in the boot sequence.

Just bought what I thought was going to be a brand new
( Hitachi Hdd 0f12455 2tb Sata 6gb/S Enterprise Storage 7200rpm 64mb Cache Bare Drive ), but when I was ready to install it in my case I noticed some kind of blue stuff (maybe glue) in 4 of the 6 mounting holes. Now I'm thinking this was a return.
Any thoughts?

A:Is my new Hitachi HDD actually used

Do you mean that the 4 mounting holes of the disk have blue stuff in them. That could be for keeping the screws real tight. Check whether a screw will work in the holes.
