  • Qosmio G30 - DVD-ROM drive has stopped working

    I have a Qosmio G30 age of 3 years and the DVD - ROM drive has stopped working.

    He still pulls in, but it will not read or burn discs.

    I received a quote of £360 Toshiba to adapt to a new one that seems generous.

    Anyone know where I could get it fixed cheaper than you?
    Or better yet... anyone know where I can I get it fixed?

    This is not an answer to your question but can solve the problem if it is the same that I had.
    In my case, the drive tries to spin but it slips. Only the motor shaft rotates and the drive remains at low revolutions that were not even stationary.
    The problem was caused by the fact that the plastic part (black color) of the mechanism which engages the disc (CD or DVD) slips on the
    motor drive, axle and th couldn't do a full rotation or runs at the specified speed.
    The solution is to delete the article in plastic and put a small amount of super glue on the axle and then put it back.

    Where there is a similar issue, I hope that solve you it like I did.

  • TS-H653N SCSI Cd Rom Drive has stopped

    This seems to be a common problem in the Internet with those of us who have this drive.

    Here's my problem:

    I'm on a HP Pavilion S3320N (2007), running Vista Home Premium, service all packed, patched and up to date, with zero problems since installation.

    Last week, the CD/DVD drive has stopped working.  Device Manager showed that little uh - oh exclamation in yellow, and the properties said: "Windows cannot load the driver for this hardware device. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)."  I tried to update driver, but Windows reports that the current driver is the last.

    Facing a deadline, I'm heading down to the computer store, buy the last external USB CD/DVD (a Samsung) drive and plug it into USB.  Exactly the same problem.  Device Manager lists the two disks and displays the error even for both.

    Anyone else seen this?  Someone at - it suggestions?  I tried many searches, some driver downlaods, MS Fixit... Heck, HP doesn't even have a replacement driver for this (or I can't find).

    Your help is appreciated.

    Thank you


    Well.  A long and winding road indeed.

    I ran Vista Fix (different than the one that I ran before, btw) and he finds the same problem that we discussed, but it was only a couple of solutions - which was due to start a Chat session with Ms.  I thought well, I put at least $ 50 in this already, they have a shot and maybe it will save me a trip the local PC guru (which will charge me at least as much and keep my PC for a week).

    Anyway, long story short, the MS rep had me uninstall the CD/DVD drive and then do a scan for hardware changes - no reset.  The scan picked up the pilot, reinstalled and everything works just fine.  Magic.  And a value of the load.

    So, there go.  Add your vast storehouse of useful info and advice for the guy next door, DP - K - and thanks again for your patience and for getting me in the right direction.

    Have an another Kudo!

    Best for you,


  • Cannot use DVD BD Player: WIN DVD MFC application has stopped working

    Tried to install my old version of WinDVD and failed and in the process perhaps accidentally deleted a file,
    now every time I try and use DVD BD drive I get the following message:

    "WIN DVD MFC application has stopped working"

    I tried to use restore point, but still get it, can anyone advise please?

    It will be interesting to know what model of laptop you have.
    Anyway, in my opinion, there is a software conflict. I guess players use even modules or plug-ins, and there is a conflict.

    I put t know what solution can be, but maybe you should remove both players, restart your laptop and make own BD drive in the hope that it will work properly.

    Rare Hi

    This message is certainly created by the installed graphic card driver.
    I can't say for sure why this happens, but I recommend you to reinstall the graphics driver.
    In most cases, this should fix problems with gambling.

    If the reinstallation of the system with the recovery CD does not help, then it is not a software problem.
    This means that some hardware component is defective.
    In this case, you need to take your laptop to the service.

    Hi Jeroen,

    I think that your problem is related to overheating rather than a defective display driver. The idea here is that it takes several attempts to reboot, giving the unit time to cool.
    I suggest that you try to remove all dust and debris from your radiator and see if it improves the stability of your units.

    You can download a copy of your display driver of: -.

  • Office Pavilion Elite HPE message: AMD/ATI Video Driver has stopped working properly

    I have a Windows 7 Desktop HPE-410y, this morning, that the flag of the action center was at the bottom of the screen.  I clicked on it and there was a message: AMD/ATI Video Driver has stopped working properly.  He also said I should click on a link for a solution to this problem, but of course when I made the site of HP said that the page does not exist.

    Maybe say if you have in fact noticed nothing else Action Center indicator would be useful.  If it seems to you that the computer was OK and run satisfactorly, then perhaps he had already solved the problem.  Usually reviews can occur if a program did unexpected things and crashed the video driver, then the driver recovered.

    HP site can be set to an old page.  The real driver has not been updated recently on the HP site.

  • "the igxprd32 display driver has stopped working normally please restart your computer" on intel gma 3150

    First of all, you're not telling the forum what version of Windows, edition and service pack level your system is running.  Please do.

    Secondly, there is no describe your system.  Tell us who makes your system and its model, if a packaged system.  If not packed, please tell us who manufactured your motherboard and model.  If your video card is another box and not originally shipped with the system, please tell us the manufacturer and model of the adapter.

    Finally and most importantly, please read 555375 Microsoft Knowledge base article, how to ask a question.

    Now, in general, unless your system has a card mother Intel®, you do not want to download an updated directly from Intel® driver.  If there is a system, you will want to download an update of the driver support from the manufacturer of your system model site.  If not packed, see web site for support of the manufacturer of the motherboard for your updated driver model.  If this isn't the case, a card mother Intel®, the reason for the not to load the Intel® GMA 3150 drivers from the web site Intel® is that there may be unhandled in the Inte® base drivers implementation changes.  Nor should download the drivers through Windows Update, except as a last resort.  If Windows Update contains an updated driver, check you motherboard of the system/website of the manufacturer for updates.  Be aware that some manufacturers/motherboard of the system (e.g. Dell) don't feel any economic incentive to keep the drivers/firmware to update if a motherboard system was abandoned.
