Q: Viglen Laptop unable to read CDs

Hello all,

i recently got hold of a laptop free its a viglen 2700T laptop specs

Pentium III 1ghz
512mb RAM
Win 98SE

Basically the cd drive did not work, it would be detected in bios and would show in windows under my computer but if you double click on the drive it would display the message Cd drive is not accesble please try again. I tried booting with a XP Pro cd and it did not rekonise the cd.

I have bought a new cd drive and got PC WORLD (uk main pc store) to fit it. This cost 30 and i have just got back to test it and its not working (same problem). I forgot to take my power lead to PC WORLD so they could not test it themselves... i agreed to let them do the work without testing (i kno my bad)

My question is does anyone know what is wrong with it? I now know how to fit these myself so if it involves going into the laptop i will not hesitate.

Please please please help me i need this to install format the hdd as its in such a mess.

Thanks alot in advance
Moka

Preferred Solution: Viglen Laptop unable to read CDs

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.)

Hi,

Had something similar recently, found out that there is a small plug (two pin) on the back of the CD unit which makes it into Master, Slave etc, move it along and see if that helps.
Other than that it may need a new unit as wear and tear occur.

Morning all,

From what I can see, this seems to be a fairly common problem across computers...

My Dell Inspiron n5010 (Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit) sporadically won't read DVDs. A couple of nights ago, it took a couple of tries - last night, I couldn't get it to play one at all.

Having looked for various fixes, I have tried the following:

-Updating drivers
-Disabling and re-enabling the drive in device manager
-Going into the registry to remove recommended entries (high/low filters i think? I only had the "high" option, which apparently means that fix isn't for me...)
-Uninstalling any DVD-burning software that may be interfering with my laptop's own DVD player/software.

I'm at a bit of a loss now, I'm not a complete moron when it comes to computers, but i have a fairly limited array of solutions which i am able to attempt before i must ask for help.

So, i apologise in advance if this has been posted before...but does anyone have any suggestions as to how i might fix this?

Many thanks,

Alex

A:Dell Inspiron laptop unable to read DVDs

Hello and welcome to the forums, PastorofMuppets! (I see you like Metallica too.)

You've mentioned DVDs, does that include CDs and any kind of other optical media too?

Do you have an external USB CD/DVD drive you can try to plug into your system to try out DVDs on?

If you do, try plugging it into your system via USB and playing a disc from the external drive.

I am getting "a disk read error occurred
Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart"

When I do, I just come back to the same screen.
This is a Dell Studio (1555?) laptop runnings Windows XP. Warranty expired.
It was running fine Tuesday, and just started this when I booted Wednesday morning.
I have not added any hardware, software or updates. All I have done is try several times to Ctrl+Alt+Del, remove the laptop battery and reinstall, and went into Boot Options (F12), Enter Setup and Selected F9 (Setup Defaults). No luck.

I have also removed the hard drive and tried to hook it up with EZ-Connect (Kingwin) to try to pull my files.
However, the little install disk would not install on the 2nd laptop (Vista and pretty crumby itself...), and I was not able to see it from the 2nd computer.

And I have also tried Ubuntu (running from a flash drive and a live cd) to try to pull my files. I have not been able to successfully mount the drive and see any data.

Any thoughts on how I can first, pull my files (if still possible) and second, troubleshoot to find out what the issue really is.

I am running the Dell diagnostic tool (in setup)... to see what info it yields.

Any help would be so gratefully appreciated.

A:Disk Read Error - unable to boot laptop

Since you pulled the hard drive out once, please do so again and tell us who the manufacturer of the drive is so that we can link you to the appropriate hard drive diagnostic tool. The Dell BIOS one is pretty generic but does a good job.

If the drive fails replace it.
Any clicking noises like a clock would make?

Hi All,

The SanDisk ultra 16 GB class 10 card that I use with my camera was working fine with my Lenovo Z50-70 (OS - Win 10) laptop till last week. One fine day it stopped reading the card and since then I have not been able to read the card transfer any files or pictures. The card works fine with other windows 7 laptops and my laptop is able to read other camera SD cards. Am at a fix here and I am wondering what can be the cause for concern here. I have formatted my Lenovo laptop and have reinstalled windows and its drivers from the Lenovo support site which obviously didn?t help. Any suggestions would be welcome.

A:Unable to read SDHC card in windows 10 laptop

I have a Lenovo B575 and my Card Reader stopped working as well. I fixed it by downloading an updated Win 10 driver directly from Realtek; however, I would check for an updated Lenovo driver first (which you may already have done).

Help Please

i have a Viglen Laptop. I am running win XP. My problem is that I have to restart my PC 4 or 5 times before it picks up the mouse. When it eventually pics up the mouse, I can shut down and restart as many times as I want and it would pick up the mouse. Only if I leave it unused for a day or more, it would not pick up the mouse. It has a touchpad mouse but I have tried it with a PS2 mouse and the exact same thing happens. I have tried removing the device and re-installing it. I formatted the hard drive and re-installed my opperating system and software but no joy.

I'd be grateful for help/advice. My Windows 7Ultimate is BSODing frequently - the bluescreen says DRIVER IRQ NOT LESS OR EQUAL or similar.

The machine is old (I bought it secondhand ~ 15 months ago), but it has had the motherboard, RAM & graphics card replaced since then. It's not used for any task more demanding than downloading/watching AVIs/Libreoffice/GNUCash/Thunderbird. The BSODs occur practically every time MS Security Essentials does a full scan, as well as up to ~5 times a day when the PC feels like it!

The Windows 7 is a retail version (32 bit), and replaced Win XP that came installed when I bought the machine. The Win 7 was originally installed on 050710 and worked flawlessly until the motherboard broke earlier this year - the current installation dates from ~060611.

Any help or advice will be gratefully received!

So I turned my computer off last night, everything was working fine. Then when I woke up today, I turned it on and BAM, could no longer read my SSD (Vertex 2) and would get a message telling me to insert my windows install disk.

So I decided to humour it, and tried putting the disk in, checked the recovery options and was unable to find the SSD to perform recovery on. I carried on a few more steps to install a fresh copy and it wasn't listed there either.

I spent about a hour fiddling around with the hardware, swapping around wires and harddrives to check if it was the wires messing me about, turns out everything worked fine.

I then reset my BIOS and then checked the boot settings, but my SSD wasn't even displayed on the list.

So I was stumped.

On the POST screen, when the SSD was not plugged in, nothing would show up in that slot, however when the SSD is plugged in it says 'None'


(SSD currently plugged into C1 Master)

This problem has been bugging me all day, and I was hoping someone might know what it going on ?

Regards,
MatthewH

A:Unable to read SSD

Have you tried to plug the SSD into another SATA slot on your board? If that dosen't work, try and connect a spare Hard Drive to the cable your SSD is currently connected to - just to rule out whether it's actually the SSD or a problem with a SATA port on the motherboard.

A:Unable to read files

Since I don't know what library you are using, my first guess is that you are using an incompatible version of Office. For instance, you have Office 98 and the library is writing for Office 2003 files.

If the error is in your code, double check that you are catch()ing all errors and checking return values for errors.

I recently use a recovery disc to restore my computer back to factory settings. The first time I turned my computer one, I recieved some sort of notice asking me if I wanted to disable my CD/RW capability in order to have DVD-R capabilities? I can't quite remember. Anyway, after all was said an done, I put in a CD to the the CD drive and it was not readable. After running my computer for a little bit longer, some of the CDs that worked eariler, no longer worked. I've been able to rip about half of my CDs onto my computer, and the other half go undetected (all my CDs are store bought, none are burned) . My DVD playback was really choppy too.

Things I've done to try and fix this have consisted of:
1. Uninstalling my D: Drive.
2. Uninstalling my IDE channels
3. Running the recovery disc again
4. Making sure all drivers were up to date
5. I've put the discs into another computer to make sure that it wasn't the discs.
6. I completed all the windows updates recommended.
7. Went into the properties of my CD/DVD drive and "Enable CD recording on this device."

Are there any other alternatives to get my CD/DVD drive back to 100% functioning? This could be a hardware problem, but considering it worked fine until the recovery makes me sceptical.

Thanks in advance for the help!

A:Unable to read disk?

Likely a bad drive. You do not state whether or not it's a CDROM or DVDROM or CD or DVD burner.

Autoplay may also be disabled, which isn't a bad thing but maybe you weren't expecting this. Simply open an explorer window to browse the CDROM. Does it read the disk or do you get an error? If so copy and paste the entire error back here.

The error you mention above isn't really clear, can you again post the exact error.

Also check the event viewer for any error messages that are logged onto the machine. Perhaps you have some problems and errors here that should be reviewed.

Regarding the XP machine, the McAfee Security Center recognized a program as a trojan and quarantined the program. In my haste, I deleted the program. Since that day the cd will not read any cd.

Is it possibly the dust, so that I will only have to use a CD cleaner? Or, could the E driver (hardware) be kaput?

Thanks,
James

How old is the CD Drive and is it just a CD drive and not a DVD/CD combo drive?

When I put my camera's SD memory card into the card reader slot on my computer it no longer reads it.

I have an Acer desktop computer with Vista OS. It's not the memory card cuz I can read it on my wife's laptop. I can read the card when its in the camera and camera is hooked up to desktop via USB cable. Everything I google says to check the device manager but when I do that it does not even show the slots for the card.

Thanks in advance.

Hi there,
Seem to be running into a strange problem. I can't for the life of me remove read only, this is effecting both my drives (seperate units, not partitions) across every folder. I've tried he standard way of simply removing through properties, once complete all folders return to "read only" again.

I tried http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;EN-US;326549 without success.

If it helps, I'm running Spybot and AVG Free Edition.

I am getting an error message fairly often when trying to open attachments to my E-mail which states "This file does not have a program associated with it for performing the action. Create an association in the Folder Options Control Panel." I can't find the aforementioned control panel and if I could I wouldn't know what to do. The "help" programs herein are of no assistances since they don't list this panel either. Any suggestions?

Hi tech(once)

What file extensions do these attachments have?
What operating system and email program are you using?

Hi, since I switched my ISP, I keep getting a message that IE has encountered a problem and has to close. I also get messages that something could not be read. I know there is something in Yahoo that it doesn't like, I think something in the ISP toolbar. As soon as I have time to figure it out, I am switching my ISP. This one has had me re-install 4 times and gets worse everytime. Thanks for your help.

My friend?s computer got crashed and when he brought it to me it was showing error it was missing some system files in system32 . He has window professional in it so I copied some of the files from window proff system disk. It started but it missed some of his files (I don?t know what exactly he did but he tried a lot of stuff by himself!! ) but now he asked me to retrieve some of his old files he had on his computer. So it was an excel file. With the help of PC recovery tool software I m able to get a *.tmp file with name filename.xls~ RF30526.tmp but my problem right now is , I cant read this file. Its view is totally different now . So I tried changing Its extension to .xls and tried to open it with excel but still unable to read it. Could anybody please help us to open this file. This is very important file for my friend so he cant afford to loose it ..
Please help !!

A:unable to read .tmp file ?? please help

surely its saved elsewhere on the hard drive..so what if he loses his temp one, he can use the presaved one he opened.
If he didnt then...if it was important why not save at every 10min interval lol?

But you could ask if its in his my docs folder anyway.
Slave the drive to your machine and find it that way?

Hi, it appears no one has an answer for me. The messages I am getting are :


The instructions at 0x62308d19 are unable to read reference memory 0x0227385c

And the add on that appears to be causing the problem is yiesrvc.dll

Can anyone tell me what I can do about this? My computer is freezing up so bad tonight I can hardly get anything done. Thanks

A:Re: Unable to read messages

Go to add/remove programs and see if you see Yahoo toolbar listed. If so, remove it and see if it fixes this. If it is not listed, post back.

Hello -

When ever I try to open an office document, be it word, excel or access, I get a message that says "Uable to read file." Everytyhing worked just fine last week, and I haven't installed anything recently. I tried deleting the Normal.dot to see if that was the case, and the problem still exists. I'm running a virus scan right now, and I guess I will try to reinstall Office next. Anything else I should try before doing that?

I'm running Office 2000 on XP pro, and again, all of these files worked fine last time I tried to open them.

Thanks.
