  • Lack of Dell Optiplex 790, PCI Simple Communications controller driver

    Performed a clean installation of Windows 10 Pro on my Dell OptiPlex 790.  Everything went well and all device drivers have been installed except one, the Intel AMT - GROUND device.  The vendor id is 8086 and the device id is 1C3D.  Can help you with this question?

    Thank you.


    It seems that it is the Intel Series driver LAN.  Your computer was never tested by Dell for Windows 10, which means there is no new driver created by Intel, etc., that can work.  You can google Intel AMT/GROUND and see if Intel has a driver for your chipset that can work.  It looks like Dell stopped supporting your computer for Windows 8.0

  • Windows Media Center cannot detect the error DVD Windows Media Center cannot detect a DVD in the DVD - ROM drive. Insert a video DVD into the drive

    Original title: why Windows Media Center does not detect my DVD?

    I built my computer motherboard ASUS P658D, Intel i7 processor clocked at 2.6 gHz, 12 GB RAM, 750W Corsair PWR. power, Windows 7 Home Premium 64 - bit & ie9. When I put or the other two DVDs in one of two DVD players, Windows Media Center appears and when I click on "Play DVD" Media Center give me a window that says:

    "Windows Media Center cannot detect a DVD in the DVD - ROM drive. Insert a video DVD in the drive." Two DVDs, I've tried are educational for DVD

    my Nikon D300 Digital camera and a family video DVD or both these very well play in a bed of same computer running Windows 7 Professional 64-bit, & ie8.

    I tried Microsoft Fixit, no help. I tried to send Microsoft Support, and I got NO HELP. I did not bring any changes, and installed any program, just

    scoured the internet. A DVD player is a Sony Optarc with Microsoft Driver, the other is ASUS. I also tried to use Windows Media Player but nothing

    rises or it returns me to Windows Media Center and it does not detect to play either of my DVD. How can I get help here, or from Microsoft? Thank you.

    No, there is no yellow warning in Device Manager and the device manager says that two DVD players work properly. Mr. Fix it's

    automated download from microsoft that is supposed to automatically fix some problems, but he provided no help here. I think it is more likely

    that there is a problem with Windows Media Center or Windows 7 Pro 64 bit and either of my two new Sony DVD drives

    and ASUS.

    I thought my way in a solution. My thought was: Device Manager indicates DVD players work properly and both are new and we're Sony, and the other ASUS so I think only an unlikely problem with readers. The problem is with Windows Media Center "do DETECTED is not the DVD. So there must be a problem with Windows Media Center. I thought that I might need to reinstall Windows 7... then I thought that maybe if I just reinstall Windows Media that will work. He did. My problem was:

    Start > Panel > programs and features > features on or off Windows activate > then uncheck the box for multimedia functions > restart the computer > and then re-check the box to restore the multimedia features > now both discs play both DVDs, I tried. Both disks are operating normally. Reinstall the characteristics of media Windows 7 resolved the problem. Thanks to all who offered solutions.

    I totally messed up my DVD - ROM drive. After graduating the famous blue screen of death once yesterday and once today, I thought that my PC settings reset would fix the problem. Then, I pressed F2 when my computer starts and resets all settings. Unforunately, this is something serious to my DVD - ROM drive. Initially, it did not work, so I opened my computer and somehow got it works. But now, it does not detect the disks I insert in there. I get the message "no DVD - ROM drive found."

  • Satellite 1110-Z12: CD-Rom drive will not play copy controlled CD


    The CD-Rom drive in my Toshiba Satellite 1110-Z12 (bought 01/2003 in Holland) becomes completely unreadable when I insert a CD protected by "Controlled copy" (IFPI). And I mean, berserk, he upped power at an incredible speed of spinning - very strong - and afraid he will break down.

    These are mainly EMI productions such as:
    -Norah Jones: Feels Like Home
    -Joss Stone: The soul Sessions.

    I know that these copy protection systems can never break or damage the use on CD players (standalone or computer).

    How can this be repaired? I never found the firmware update for the CD player on the Toshiba site.

    As much as I m did know, is it possible that the General of music that are "Controlled copy" by IFPI do not work in the drive of your laptop.

  • Satellite P20 DVD ROM drive may not be recognized


    I just replaced my DVD ROM drive, but I had a problem.
    It is a new DVD rom drive I ordered at TOSHIBA also.
    It could not be detected by Windows:
    -Tried to check on Device Manager, not detected
    -Tried to reload the driver, the same problem
    Whenever I tried to re - insert the disc, the blue light in the control panel of my P20 beds (I understand, which means that the P20 detects the drive) but I don't understand, is that why Windows XP does not detect it or it does not alarm or error messages.

    Any help?
