dvd-rom malfunction?

Q: dvd-rom malfunction?

I have a Atapi 6x/32x dvd-rom. Recently, when attempting to insert and install any type of software...dvd or cd it causes my computer to crash and I need to reboot. Sometimes, at that point a warning appears during the reboot process indicating...fatal exception OE: page fault and lists too many numbers to repeat. Could this be hardware or software problems? I have a 2 year old micron 450MHz Intel II that required a hard drive replacement last year (13.0 GB Ultra ATA66 Hard Drive) after emmiting the "sound of Death" Any one have any clues? Thank you
Lisa.

Preferred Solution: dvd-rom malfunction?

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 http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: dvd-rom malfunction?

For starters, go to start/settings/control panel/system/device manager/ cdrom tab, is it listed correctly , does it have any error indicators. If not, try selecting it, hit remove, reboot and reinstall the drive and software that came with it.

I recently purchased an HP ProBook 450 G3. I am using two passport compact 1 TB drives with my laptop's two USB 3.0 ports. In normal use there is no problem. However, when I copy a lot of data from one to the other (or from one to the laptop's internal drive) the drives keep disconnecting. I know this because first I will get a copying error saying either the source or the destination is missing. Then I will hear the "chime" that Windows makes when a USB device connects or disconnects. Then the autoplay window for the Passport drive will appear. It seems that it spontaneously disconnects and then reconnects. I can continue using it for a time afterward, but it always spontaneously disconnects at some point, always when I am doing large data transfers.

I wondered if I have a poor physical connection---the USB plugs seem a bit loose. I checked if there is any vibration or movement that could break the connection, but so far there is no evidence that anything is moving. The disconnection always happens when a lot of data is being transferred, while the drives are sitting completely still.

Any ideas how to debug this?

A:Hard drive malfunction? USB port malfunction? Or just normal?

This is a hard situation to diagnose from a distance IMO. "Loose" is somewhat subjective, and barring serious abuse the only kinds of usb connectors & ports I've ever seen fail mechanically are mini and micro USB2 types.

I'd be inclined to suspect the drives first, especially if they are from the same family and were produced around the same time (the "bad batch" phenomenon). Have you tried to reproduce the problem on other machines, or with different drives on your machine?

DEP processing is flaky. Setting /noexecute=OptOut and adding HP digital monitor to the exceptions list does not cause DEP enable for all processes.

No 'restart needed' popup is displayed....
?? CHROME, AVAST, FIREFOX all show DEP (permanent). All others DISABLED.....
?? setting /noexecute=AlwaysOn works, all processes DEP'd, BUT disallows HP digital monitor (can print, cannot scan or retrieve printer info).
I do have Administrator privileges but thought I noticed a popup (IIRC) re two items (processes?) not functioning, CIMV2? perhaps and one other. WBEMTEST checked for DEP 3 (OptOut), verified it was set (I forget the Superclass now, under root/cimv2).
Is this a Startup issue of some kind? Something not loading? GPEDIT under XP not helpful unless DISabling access to various options.

When I go to play a computer game (such as DOTA 2), the CPU fan malfunctions a few minutes into playing the game and then intermittently switches off then on until I shut the computer off for a while. Is there any way to fix this issue? I have already updated my bios and it did not help.

Hi jdendrin,

First and foremost, please post your computer specs. Posting computer specs definitely helps us troubleshoot computer issues more efficiently. What is the brand/model of your laptop? Do you have warranty on your laptop? It's possible that the fan inside your laptop is dying.

Hello everyone, first time poster, so sorry if I mess up ^^

Anyways, I just got a new laptop, specifically a Lenovo 80XS0086IX Ideapad 320-15ABR. Initially it all seemed fine, but as I used it I noticed several problems: 1) it cannot remain in sleep mode for long. After a while, it just switches off abruptly. I have tried several combinations of lid closed/open, power cord in/out, but eventually the result is always the same. 2) When powering it on after these shutdowns, the trackpad does not recognize multiple-fingers gestures, requiring a restart. 3) The disk usage frequently goes up to 100% despite no ongoing activity. 4) Sometimes, pressing the power button to power it on results in the disk starting, then abruptly stopping, then restarting again several times, before the laptop finally starts. 5) The system sometimes freezes for several seconds, even the cursor stops, only to resume any input movement later.

I have tried everything in my knowledge: I updated the BIOS, the HDD firmware, installed all Windows updates, fresh-installed Windows, but nothing seems to work (although the HDD thing apparently solved the "always 100%" problem). I ran both Windows in-built check-disk and third party programs to check for errors on the HDD, but none showed up. I'd be really glad if it was something I can fix at home, since I really need this machine to study, so sending it to be repaired/replaced back at Amazon is my very last option due to time.

Hello all,

Well, to get right into it, my PSU conked out. I shut down my computer (Start > Turn Off Computer . . .), it didn't automatically turn off like it normally does. So, I tried the power switch, nothing happened. Finally, I flipped the switch on the PSU. Obviously, it was off now.
The next day, I went to turn it on, and it didn't. I tested the power switch, it was fine, so the next thing to check was the PSU. Took it to a computer service store, they tested it, it was dead. I sent it back to the company, they sent me a brand new one. And that brings us to today.

I installed the PSU in my computer, hooked it up to everything (mb, harddrive, video card, CD-Rom, fans). I pushed the power button, the PSU lit up (it has a lighted fan on it) and the fan went on, this lasted about a second, then it shut off. Well, then I went through step-by-step:
- Connected only the motherboard to the PSU - turned on, stayed on, beeped.
- Connected the motherboard and the larger fan - turned on, stayed on, beeped.
- Connected the motherboard, larger fan, and the harddrive - turned on, stayed on, beeped.
- Connected the motherboard, larger fan, hard drive, and video card - turned on, stayed on, did not beep. (apparently it was beeping because there was no video output.
- Connected the motherboard, larger fan, hard drive, video card, and plugged everything into the back of the computer - turned on, stayed on.
- Connected everything listed above, plus the smaller fan, turned an... Read more

A:PSU Malfunction

Although there are things like power surges and lightning strikes that could kill a PSU, there is really no reason to try to come up with a scenario for what happened. Often they just die and it can be without warning. I think you are saying that now everything works. If the new PSU suddenly quits then you may have a problem that needs to be figured out.

The fan set up looks pretty standard.

I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop with XP Home Edition on it. All of my drives and devices connect externally and I access them through 3 different USB ports. A week ago I began having problems with my USB ports.

When I turn on my laptop, the devices (a mouse, keyboard and printer) initially are recognized and run well. Then I hear the noise from the comp as if I unplugged a device and my mouse, keyboard and printer are all no longer recognized by the comp. Sometimes I hear the noise as if I plugged them back in, sometimes I don't hear that noise but get an error message saying that my devices are not working properly and need to be replaced. All of my devices are in reality functioning properly. There does not seem to be consistency in when the USB ports stop functioning. During this time I am not touching the connections and at times am not even actively using the comp.

Do I have a trojan virus? or are my USB ports beginning to simply malfunction?
Any suggestions would be really appreciated. I can't do much with a laptop that cannot save a file to a disk or print a file. I have ad ware and spy ware removal tools (ad aware, spybot search and destroy, spyguard) as well as an updated firewall and antivirus (zone alarm suite) running on the comp. No major risks or problems have been found by these programs.
Thanks!

We have a HP2100 connected to our W2K network. Whenever you send a print job to it, the light next to the "Go" button on the printer will blink. Nothing from the job you send will come out until you push the button. And when you have a document over 1 page, it requires you to push the button for EVERY page of the document (ugh!). I checked HP's website (so helpful) and the closest thing I could find was this:

The printer may be in manual feed mode (Go light blinking).
Add paper to Tray 1 and press and release the GO button.

I have checked the printer settings on the server and on my workstation - they have Letter paper with Auto Select as the defaults. I have tried setting it to pickup from Tray1 and 2, nothing.

I plugged a new web cam into the USB port. Windows detects the hardware and then the computer crashes immediately. I tried running thoro scan disk, altho errors were found on the drive, the situation remains unchanged.
 

A:USB port malfunction

Do you have any usb devices working prior to installation.
In the bios, do you have the option to enable irq for usb enabled.
What OS are you running.

Ok, this is kinda complicated. It started this morning. I was on the web when Trend Micro popped up a message that wanted me to allow or delete a change to my system. The file name was called geede.dll..so I googled it and came across a couple posts. Well they started of by saying running Vundofix.exe...which I did and it came back clean. Then the user was told to download Combofix.exe to the desktop and disconnect the internet and disable any antivirus software (Trend in my case)...so far so good..then the computer restarted..this is where I get into serious problems.

First, the computer won't reboot getting stuck on the "Windows is Starting UP" screen for 10 minutes.So I manually restarted the computer. Once my desktop finally loaded, the task bar looked weird, and no longer showed any thing besides the start menu, the quick launch icons, and the clock, the time format is still changed to 24h time even though combofix said it would change that back... even though programs can still be opened they do not display on the taskbar.

I restarted and the same thing happened. So, I tried to perform a system restore by going to c:\\Windows\erdnt\Hiv-backup\erdnt.exe...it restarted the computer but nothing changed...i'm still stuck with the same problem...so at this point I am kinda worried and decide that I should probably back up everything just in case...but I can't copy/cut (ctrl v) files or drag and copy files to the desktop or anywhere on the computer ...

Hi all,
newbie here, lol
I've been reading through some of the past posts but either i've missed or cant find anything that may help with a minor (well big) problem i got. A few weeks ago I changed a screen on a Hp 6753s laptop it worked perfectly, but i got told by a friend that it picked up a virus something like windows defender, but it wasnt windows (microsoft) I've scanned the hard drive and cleared any virus infestations on it, I've done full check on it, repairing any bad sectors it may have had, but still it wouldnt boot past the bois. i reformatted it, wiped it completely and started to re-install windows vista back onto it, but once it gets to the vista screen it hangs.
At first i thought it was the hard drive, so i went out and bought a new one, but again, putting the operating system on, it copies the files off the dvd but hangs after you input the country, keyboard settings. the hard drive i know works, because both were tested on different laptops, i actually installed the OS on friends laptop, and transfered that hard drive to my laptop, but it hangs on the vista logo.
I also have just tried flashing the bois, but that wont work, it wont boot from either the dvd or memory pen. I've also tried putting a non windows OS on it and same thing, one files copied it hangs.
So can anyone tell me, suggest any ideas or has the virus destroyed mainboard?
thanks in advance

I have the T-Mobile MDA, which uses Microsoft Mobile 5.0. Since I installed Norton Anti-Virus, Firewall & System Works 2006, I cannot sync my device. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Active Sync, have checked the firewall, have hard-reset the mobile device, used Norton Go Back and still get the error code 85010014. For some reason I get the following message: "Active Sync encountered a problem on the desktop. Support Code 85010014. I feel like I have tried everything and now my hard-reset has caused me to have a pda with no information since nothing will sync. HELP! thanks.

"chkdsk c:" never completes in Windows XP telling me "Detected minor inconsistencies on the drive. This is not a corruption", at other times tells me it's found errors with the file system (NTFS) and bitmap and advises me to run chkdsk c: /f upon restart. Upon restart, chkdsk completes without showing any corrections, Windows reboots then comes the blue screen of death showing "SESSION5_INVALID..." and at the bottom "0x000...71" and a bunch of "0x000...0".
In other words, chkdsk ruins Windows, In order to confirm this, I installed a new Windows then tried chkdsk c:/f, the same thing happened, the exact same blue screen of death.
If it's the HDD that's gone south, how do I confirm it?
Any ideas, suggestions or solutions?
 

A:chkdsk causes malfunction

What is the make of your hard disk.

For example, my disc is a Seagate and if I go to their website, there is an option to have them diagnose my HD online.

This is mandatory for me to save their report and include it if I want to have my HD repaired/replaced under warranty.

If your HD is out of warranty then there is still the possibility that you can have your HD checked online.

Hi ladies and Gentleman, I have a little problem that is becoming more annoying.I went to my Real Player Plus and opened it up.Well I started a video that turned out to be generic let's say and I deleted it.So I exited fullscreen and closed rEal Player by just clicking on the red x at the extreme right top of the screen.I did pause the video first.O.k. I came back to desktop and despite me having them aligned to grid and marked show desktop Icons when you right click on Desktop and go to the top and go to the right it says several things.Anyway I had my Icons arranged the way I wanted them and now for about the fifth time this has happened about 20-25 have jumped out of place randomly placing themselves on the left side from about 1/3 of the bottom of the screen up.My first row of Icons has dropped down a line exactly.One line down lower toward the bottom where my second row of icons usually are.Can anybody tell me why this is happening and how to correct them jumping up and to the left ? Is it a mistake on my part.I noticed the Real Player Bar at the bottom which should not happen.Maybe it's taking up the spaces the icons occupied and causing them to move out of place.Do i need to log out of real Player or get off it differently ? I really appreciate any help anybody would be willing to offer or suggest .Hertabeat85

A:Desktop Malfunction

Hi Heartbeat85 -

Please try this first - Delete all System Restore points,Accessories > System Tools > System Restore and on the left side there is listed System restore Settings.
There is a Square Button that says Turn off System Restore. Click this and then click Apply. Next a box appears to confirm your choice Click Yes.
Exit from there and reboot. Repeat the same procedure but this time Remove the tick and click Apply. Now go to System restore and Create a new Restore point.
If this problem occurs again, go to that restore point and use it. You will not lose anything as it will just reset everything back how it was.
Do you know how much Ram you have and how much free space ?
It sounds like your system is having Overload problems. This is the most common cause of this problem.
I needed to do this about once a month until I removed 2 high usage games that were the cause.

Thank You -

I have MS windows XP and upon booting up I get a box that says. "The Executable files in Port Magic are corrupted Please re-install

I have no such disk to install with. Please anyone can you help?
 

A:Windows XP malfunction

Port Magic is one of those near useless programs that profess to make networking easier . . If you install it intentionally, you can reinstalll it here

If you did not intentionally install it, you may be able to uninstall it in Add/Remove Programs . . you should be able to uncheck it in msconfig to stop the message.
