Unable to locate CD-ROM drive.

Q: Unable to locate CD-ROM drive.

I wasn't sure where to post this, but I tried to run one of my games today, and I got a pop-up saying that:

Frozen Throne was unable to locate your CD-ROM drive.
Please make sure your Frozen Throne disc is in your CD-ROM drive, then click on 'Retry'.

I have never gotten this error before, so I right clicked on My Computer > Properties > Hardware > Device Manager. Then under DVD/CD ROM drives is has:

ASUS CD-S480/A5
HP DVD Writer 640c

Next to these names there is an icon which has an exclamation point " ! ".

I right clicked on ASUS CD-S480/A5 , then properties and the device status says:

Windows successfully loaded the device driver for this hardware but cannot find the hardware device. (Code 41)

I am not sure what this exactly means, but I cannot load any of my games.
Thanks.

Preferred Solution: Unable to locate CD-ROM drive.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

HI. Downloaded the driver for a Toshiba USB 2.0 Flash Drive from their website to an IBM Thinkpad running Windows 98SE. During installation it asks me to "search for a better drive than the one your device is using now (recommended)" or "Display a list of all the drivers in a specific location so you can select the driver you want." When I select the first option it says "Unable to locate a driver for this device". So my question is, if I go to the list what type of device should I select? And does it make any difference if the device is plugged in or not? I've had it plugged in to the USB port the entire time I've tried to do this. Thanx!

I downloaded a small 2mb torrent file and when I tried to open it...it disappeared! Then it started popping up windows. The name of the file is prog.exe. I can see it in task manager, under processes but there is no directory path for it. The only way to kill it is in task manager but it always comes back on reboot. It is also in XP's startup in the boot.ini. I found it in the registry as well. I have deleted it out of registry and disabled it in startup but everytime I start my computer it boots and is still in the registry. I have tried to search the hard drive for it but windows fails to find it. I have also ran AVG antivirus but still no success. Any suggestions?

Thanks

There are 2 temp file folders. 1) C:\Windows\Temp and 2) C:\Users\<your_acount_name\AppData\Local\Temp . You can delete all files in those folders. Some files may not delete because they are currently in use.

The second temp folder mentioned above can only be seen if you do this : File Explorer > View menu > Options > Change Folder and Search Options > View tab > Show hidden files. folders and drive.

Do you still have the installation CD that you used to install the OS. If so I would try either doing a repair install of the OS by booting to the CD or go to the recovery console by booting to the cd and run a chkdsk /r and see if it can find and repair any bad sectors of the drive that may have been point to the DLL location.

A:Unable to Locate Component

Your first move should be to turn on Windows Update and get your system updated. You are still on SP2 which is no longer supported by Microsoft, the Windows Update will get you up to SP3. That alone may cure the problem.

Follow this guide to slipstream your copy of XP with SP3, that can then be used to run the System File Checker which will replace any missing or damaged files.

http://www.helpwithwindows.com/WindowsXP/Slipstreaming_Windows_XP_Service_Pack_3.html

To run the system file checker Click on Start and type sfc /scannow (exactly as written here with the gap) into the search box and hit enter. Follow the prompts and insert the slipstreamed disc when requested.

I was browsing the net the other day and window popped up saying that AVG had detected a virus in C:/Documents and Settings and that a scan should be run to get rid of it. I shut down all of my programs and ran the anti-virus to search in C:/Documents and Settings. It came up empty. I then checked for updates, found one, and then restarted AVG and had it scan the whole C drive while I did some housework and showered. Coming back to the computer about an hour later I saw that AVG had "Encountered an unknown error and had to be terminated". Ok I thought, so I restarted the computer and ran AVG again and let it run while doing my homework. Again, it crashed!

Is there something wrong with my virus scan and what else can I do? I will post a HJT log asap.

A:ypager.exe - unable to locate dll help!!!!!

Hiyas

Looks like you're using either WinNT or Win2000, so Msconfig is out of the question. Looks like Regedit is the only other option unless you have something like TweakUI loaded.

Click Start -> Run -> Type Regedit -> Then go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> Open the Software key -> Scroll down to Microsoft and open it -> Windows -> Current version -> Run. Check what's starting in the Run key, look for your ypager and delete the reg value. That should sort it out hopefully.

Good luck

Hi,

You may have an issue with DNS resolution of specific sites. This happens from time to time, and is normally an ISP issue. Let's see this:

Start, Run, CMD

TRACERT <URL of problem site>

<URL of problem site> is the actual URL of the site you're having issues with.

Right click in the command prompt, use Select All, and paste the results into a message here.

Hi guys:

We have 3 computers connected to a hub forming a LAN using a DSL modem for shared internet access. One of the computers is a server and the other 2 are clients. A few weeks ago, one of the clients began receiving a recurring message: "Netscape unable to locate server xxxx" (the x's represent any website). Prior to a few weeks ago, no problem. We have attempted just about every trick in the book (reinstalling Netscape, removing and reinstalling everything in "Network", checking TCP/IP stacks, etc.). You name it, we tried it. We are using Internetshare's "All_Aboard" software. We've corresponding with them on numerous occasions, but they have no answers. We've browsed Netscape's online knowledge base at: http://help.netscape.com/ with no luck. What are 3 perplexed techies to do? As we said, only one client on this small LAN is afflicted with that dreaded error message. If someone has asolution, he/she will be given an all-expense paid vacation to the Bill Gate's estate. (just kidding) Seriously, any ideas are greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
 

A:NETSCAPE UNABLE TO LOCATE SERVER...

Did you try reinstalling the NIC on the client? Are you running NT/2000? If so, how is the administration set up? Was there one point in time a few weeks ago when it suddenly stopped finding the server? Where or what was the client doing? Or just out of the blue one morning when user logged in?

Good Day Friends,

I have an application installed on a Windows 7 machine at office. The application installs VS 2008 Redistributable files during its installations. The installation works fine.

On the launch, the application crashes. On reviewing the Event Viewer, I can see "MFC90U.dll" listed under one of the "Data" tags.

I tried copying all the MS 2008 related files and manifests to the local directory. This also didn't work.

There are other products on the machine which are supposedly using earlier versions on VS Redistributable files. These applications work fine.

Is there any chance that the co-existence of the multiple versions of the VS Redistributable files is causing any issues?

Is there any way of specifying manifests in the local directory for the missing DLLs so that application can locate them?

Please advice. I am stuck on it for 3 days now.

Thanks & Regards!
Pankaj Dwivedi.

A:Application is unable to locate MFC90U.dll and others

Before doing anything else I would reinstall or repair install (if the app supports it)
The application that is the source of the error.
You may want to run the setup or installer file as an admin and temporarily disabling UAC for the duration of the repair/reinstall.

It sounds like the file simply didn't write.

You can also try installing the latest visual C++ library and see if that resolves your problem.

I?ve been trying to install a Virtual Machine (VM Ware) onto my laptop which has the Windows Vista OS (32bit) however i?m unsuccessful as it keeps telling me that I already have a VM installed and that I should go via control panel to uninstall it first before installing the newer Virtual Machiene.

The problem is that I cannot see any VM programms in the Install/Uninstall list.

Can anyone PLEASE help and tell me were else I should be looking as it is driving me mad.

I?m sorry if this seems like a very simple problem but as you may have gathered I?m rather inexperianced when it comes to IT

Many thanks in advance for any help you may be able to give

A:Unable to locate a program to uninstall

Maybe this method will work for you. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/247515

If that doesn't work there are other tools like jvpowertools that can uninstall programs not listed in the programs and features area.

I have little or no experience with Microsoft Access and I need to be dope-slapped. I had no idea how to create a database so I "played around" with the program.

I tried a couple of times to create a database and saved them both times. I was able to find both files so I developed this false sense of confidence. I selected the option to use the wizard, chose some sample category, the name of which I don't remember, added 3 categories to a blank database, changed the names of all 3 and proceded to type-in about 300 entries. May I add that I don't know how to type so this took quite some time. Periodically I would click file, save, and this is what I did before I finally closed the file. Of course, fool that I am, I have no idea what, if anything, it was saved AS. I recall that I did not choose a primary key, or whatever it's called.

I am using windows xp and am unable to find a list of last files opened. i have no idea what the file is called. I have tried search using many word possibilities to no avail. I opened the Access list of databases and I find nothing familiar. I even tried opening each one but again, I can't bring up anything familiar. Is there any way to find this file or could it be lost forever?

Sign me "inACCESSable."
 

A:unable to locate access file

go to Start, Find, Files or Folders and in the search field, type in *.mdb, then in the Date tab check the Find All Files modified during the previous ??? days where you specifiy how many days ago it was when you worked on this database.

You should find it then.

Make sure you are looking in all local harddrives, as well as any networked drives you may have.

Receiving this error message at startup:
"mimboot.exe - Unable to locate component
This application has failed to start because CoreDll.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem"

OS: WinXP SP2 Home Ed.

I have searched for the mimeboot.exe file, found it in Windows\Prefetch & MusicMatch. Searched for the missing CoreDll.dll file and only found it in MusicMatch. I don't have a clue as to what application this missing file is suppose to belong to so it can be fixed.

I did have a previous error problem prior to this one (Proxy Error), fixed it and now I get this message at startup. I also used Registery Mechanic two days ago and after doing so is when I got the Proxy Error.

A:mimboot.exe unable to locate CoreDll.dll

Hi there and welcome to TSF.
This is a file used by MusicMatch and doesn't need to run at Startup. Do you have MusicMatch installed?

How did you "delete" this software? Did you uninstall it or simply kill the file(s)? Your problem appears to be related to "Spyware Doctor". As you have somehow removed the files for this program just reinstall it. If you want it then keep it but otherwise uninstall it again (using Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel). This should solve the problem.

BTW - this same question was asked and answered in these forums here.

I have Windows XP, 60GB HDD. I wasn't doing anything out of the ordinary, just left the room, and came back in to a rebooted computer, at a screen wanting me to insert my system disk. Well, I've tried a number of things, and all end up at the same thing. I end up with an error window saying in the menu bar "lsass.exe unable to locate component" and message box saying "this application has failed to start because" and then nothing else except the ok button. I have tried safe mode, repair console, debugging mode, setup, and even tried copying the file from the system disk to the system32 file. I've also run across something else while trying to get around this. Don't know if it's because of the many ways I've tried to get around it. Along with this lsass.exe window that pops up, it's continuosly trying to start setup. I try safe mode, and it says that "setup cannot run in safe mode", and the lsass window, and when I try to start normally, it gives me a screen saying that setup is restarting, then goes to the Windows installing screen, and it has 39 minutes left, and pops up the lsass window, and doesn't do anything more. No matter what I do, I have the lsass.exe window, and setup trying to run. Does anyone have any suggestions other than formating, to fix this problem? I have searched the forum, and the internet, and have found nothing more besides that one suggestion. I've repaired my comp several times... Read more

I get the above message plus:

"this application has failed to start because SHLWAPI.dll was not found. re-installing the application may fix this problem"

everytime we start up my friends laptop, the computer then restarts and whatever mode i try to start it in (safe mode etc) that message still comes up and the computer reboots.

This started happening after i uninstalled windows service pack 2 because it was saying that the pack had not installed properly.

is there any way of saving the PC without wiping everything off, and if not how do i format it without any windows disk as my friend has mislaid all the CDs his laptop came with.

cheers

I have tried running the setup.exe on the cd but it brings up the

I have searched everywhere for a fix. It dosent tell me which .dll is missing so have no idea where to begin.
Thanks for your help.

Good day!

I need some help here. I'm suspecting there might be a virus residing in my pc due to:

1. Windows explorer responds very slow. It takes about a minute to load.
2. Ran eset online scanner and it found/deleted pc-off.bat.
3. MalwareBytes pops up with an alert "successfully blocked access to potentially malicious websites"
then it gives an IP address.(Both incoming and outgoing)
4. CLI.EXE(.NET Framework) error on startup.
5. Can't install AVG.
Noticed this just this day, ran malwarebytes, superantispyware, eset online scanner.

For almost every file I have on my computer, I get an error message that often doesn't let me access the file.

For example:

It says...
rundll32.exe - Unable to Locate Component
This application failed to start because netbmrgxkmb.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem

The problem is that this happens with every application I try to open. Some still work, but many do not (like Firefox, Time/date on my computer, System Restore, etc)

I have searched everywhere online for this file but cannot seem to find it.

Please help.

Much appreciated. I have Windows XP by the way

A:pbuilder.exe- unable to locate component

The one thing i see right from the start is you need to update xp to SP3. sp2 is no longer supported.as to the others it means something got corrupted somewhere and isnt able to work correctly. when you used the cleaner i truly hope a registry cleaner wasnt used as that might be why theres problems.

I'm running Windows XP - Media Center Edition on Intel Pentium 4 CPU 3.2GHz, 1.5G RAM

Earlier, Norton 360 detected and blocked several intrusion attempts, but stated that everything was secure.

Shortly thereafter, EVERY program that attempted to open would generate the following pop-up message, "[program name] UNABLE TO LOCATE COMPONENT - The application has failed to start because msefrms.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem."

I click OK to acknowledge this message, only to have it reappear. After several "OK clicks", however, the program usually opens and functions properly.

I restarted my PC to get into safe mode to run a virus scan, but the message appears upon Windows boot (even on winlogon, services, lsass, etc.). Again, a few clicks of OK gets me past the message and into Windows.

I haven't been able to find ANY reference to msefrms.dll on the web. I was requested to post my HJT log - any help is greatly appreciated!

Hi, Help required please. I have an Acer 8930g running Windows Vista Home Premium.
Which when I switch it on and after logging in I get a message "SLUI.exe - Unable to Locate Component. This application has failed to start because urlmon.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem."
The machine then displays "Preparing your Desktop".
Next the computer displays "Microsoft Windows. Windows Activation Client has stopped working - A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available".
Upon clicking "Close Program" the computer goes back to the loin prompt.

If I try "Safe Mode" after logging in and seeing "Preparing your Desktop" the computer displays "Help and Support was not able to start" followed by a message at the bottom of the screen "i Your user profile was not loaded correctly! You have been logged on with a temporary profile. Changes you make to this profile will be lost when you log off. Please see the event log for details or contact your administrator"
When I look for "Restore Points" there is only one for today. I presume this is because the computer does not recognise my login.

Any ideas please.

Thanks

Pete

I think this relates to your scanner. If you&#8217;ve removed it, it may have left some remnants behind. Reinstall it. If you don&#8217;t want it, uninstall it again through add / remove programs.
