my disk driver does not work or even showed that I have have I have the driver on my compyter

on 'My computer', it shows same (on hard disk drivers) I have a driver cd, and when I put a CD looks like it's trying to work, but nothing happens.

How to fix this?



Did you of recent changes to the computer?

This problem may occur if one of the following scenarios is true:
1. pilots of filter in the CD and the DVD storage stack are not migrated successfully to Windows 7.
2. you uninstalled CD software that fails to withdraw properly in the registry.
3. that you have installed a software that adds filter drivers in the CD and the storage stack of DVDs that interfere with existing filters.

I suggest you first click "Run now" article.
Your CD or DVD drive cannot read or write media

If this does not work, manually follow the steps indicated below the articles.
The CD drive or the DVD drive does not work as expected on a computer on which you updated for Windows Vista/7

  • Firefox 4 does not save tabs even after that I have the settings to display the message "save and exit".

    As the title suggests. Basically after I changed the settings using the "topic: config" method and ONLY the parameters of the topic support told me to change Firefox 4 still does not actually save the legs after leaving. After the reset just FF4 restarts me to my home page. Now, I try only to save anywhere between 2 and 5 to the more tabs.

    Firefox 4 saves the previous session automatically, so it is no longer necessary for the dialog box asking if you want to save the current session.

    You can use "Firefox > history > restore previous Session" for the previous session.

    There is also a button 'Restore previous Session' on the default on: Home home page.
    Another possibility is to use:

    • Tools > Options > general > startup: "When Firefox starts": "show my windows and tabs from last time '.

    If this does not work check that you do not run Firefox in permanent mode of private - browsing using Firefox without saving history .

  • The Aero Peek feature does not work on my computer that I've recently upgraded to the version of Win 7 Home Premium 32 bit.

    After you have installed Windows 7 Home premium, I noticed that the aero peek feature does not systematically after a fresh reboot upward. Sometimes when I turn on my computer the aero peek feature turns on immediately and works well. On other occasions when I turn it on it just does not come to the top. I had the box customize and found the checked enable aero peek. Still aero peek doesn't work. So to summarize if aero peek turns on it works fine. However, it does not illuminate whenever I boot my machine eventhough that the box is checked. Please notify.

    Try this: launch REGEDIT, navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER and make sure that EnableAeroPeek is set to 1, rather than 0.

  • Windows 7 Disk Defragmenter does not work

    All of a sudden, I get the following error message when you try to run Defrag

    "Disk Defragmenter cannot start the Task Scheduler service is not running. Start the Task Scheduler service and try again.',

    that does not work.

    Assuming that task scheduler was enabled and the Defragmenter tool still does not work, here is a routine that I have compiled over time which proved to be effective to solve the problems of Defragmenter:

    There are several reasons why the built-in Defragmenter may not work correctly:

    0. it is malware on the system. Solution: Run an anti-virus control and also a spyware check.

    1. the disk is too full (you need at least 15% free space, sometimes 20%). Solution: Delete files unnecessary and programs until you have more than 20% free space.

    2. the disc is damaged and must be repaired. Solution:

    a. open "My computer" and right-click on the drive that you want to disable frag.
    b. Select 'Properties' and click on 'tools '.
    c. Select "Check now" to check the drive for errors.
    d. Select the two options and click on 'start '.

    (This can take time and can restart the PC so that it can do the check at boot time. Be patient and let it complete).

    3. Disk Defragmenter can be altered, needing a system restore to fix it. Solution:

    a. start - all programs - Accessories - System Tools - System Restore (click here to open);
    b. Select a good restore point before you start having problems with Disk Defragmenter.
    c. start the restore process and let an end (descriptive name of something restore operation as "Repair Defrag").

    4. There are other programs that run the Defragmenter interruption integrated. Solution:
    a. close all running programs.
    b. If you think there may be some programs that run in the background.
    c. press Ctrl + Alt + Delete and
    d. Select "start Task Manager".
    e. under the 'Applications' tab, you will find a list of all running applications - you can close these by selecting "end task."

    5. If still no luck, try disabling the screen saver when you run Disk Defrag (you should very well leave the system only when running the built-in defragmentation utility).

    6. If still no go, try to run the defragmenter in Mode without failure. If she runs, something interferes with her and stalking interference may not be easy. Note: Some versions of Windows 7 disables the ability to run the Defragmenter built-in in safe mode. If disabled, it will say when you try to start it in safe mode.

    7 Disk Defragmenter may no longer be on the system or is damaged while it needs a re - install. Solution: Reinstall the built-in function.

    There are several ways to re - install the built-in Defragmenter:

    a. open the menu 'start '.
    b. type '% Windir%\Inf' in the 'Search' box and press 'Enter '.
    c. in the window that opens, find the file named "dfrg.inf.
    d. right-click on "dfrg.inf" and "install".

    a. go into "start > run" on your computer.
    b. Type "rundll32.exe setupapi, InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall 132% windir%\inf\dfrg.inf" and press "Enter."
    3. click 'OK' to make the program automatically reinstall itself.

    a. go to start > all programs > Accessories > right click on command prompt > select 'run as administrator '.
    b. at the command prompt, type "regsvr32 dfrgsnap.dll" and press "enter."
    c. type 'regsvr32 dfrgui.dll' and press 'Enter '. This will reinstall the missing Defragmenter files.

    8. most of the problems will be solved by #6 above, but if not, and if your windows installation is otherwise working well, you should consider to download a free trial of a Defrag tool commercial rather than drastic measures to restore the functionality built-s. Third-party programs are more robust and many work in the background, so you can use your PC during defragmentation.

    Most third party programs offer a free, fully functional trial (better ones are for 30 days). Install one of them allows you to disable built-in and if you decide to uninstall, removal will replace the built-in function, repaired several times in the process: it's worth a try...

    Place it at the top of the page is the only defrag program that also prevents the fragmentation (see comment).

    Why is it good to prevent fragmentation?

    Basically, it significantly increases life expectancy of your hard drive (especially since you don't have to leave the system on all night - a much 'greener' agricultural practice), not to mention it also increases the performance of the system.

    I was pulling my hair re the incompatibility of iCloud and Outlook of Office 365 2016.  I finally got things to work on three of my computers - which are on the latest version of Windows 10.

    The steps that worked for me:

    (1) uninstall the plugin iCloud (what version you have); the uninstall may fail but if so don't worry as step 3 below overlays some iCloud plugin version you have installed

    (2) open the Control Panel, uninstall, change/repair Office 365; Select fast repair

    (3) reinstall iCloud plugin (version 5.1), then restart the system by following the instructions

    (4) after the reboot, plug in iCloud application Apple ID and password; Make sure that you enter your apple with the suffix ID (e.g., [email protected])

    (5) check the iCloud options to your will (e.g., photo synch, synchronization of bookmarks, sync mail/calendar, etc.)

    (6) check apply it, leave the work plugin iCloud for a minute, when he finishes, check the closing

    (7) open Outlook 2016 and check your calendar or contacts or anything that you indicated in step 5, that you want to synchronize with

  • My new laptop has crashed and disk backup does not work, can download a boot disk for Windows 7, I hit legitimate?

    My Acer 5745 laptop crashed, my backup boot drive does not work. The laptop was running Windows 7 when I bought new in November 2010. Y at - it somewhere that I can download a floppy or a recovery disc?  'The Source' store where I bought will not help, they said they had to go back to Acer and it could take up to two months to return to a charge of about $170.

    Thanks for any help, someone might be able to give.

    A laptop bought at that date will still be under warranty, there should be no costs involved, contact Acer technical support.

    I guess by the backup startup disk, you mean the set of recovery disks you did when you first used the PC?
