Post installation of the Vista SP2, it does not detect my DVD drive.

Recently in the month of April 10, I had my laptop (Compaq Presario V6608AU) repaired because it doesn't detect DVD drive. The techincian had reinstalled vista on it and it was my regular vista. As my laptop has automatic updates enabled it installed Vista SP1 and SP2 later. After installation of SP2, my DVD player no longer works. The light initially whn system starts but windows gets loaded, it didn't post. Could some help me to get this resolved. Restore option I tried, but I restore options after installation of SP2. I have my handy DVD recovery but I'm handicapped because of this problem of DVD player and impossible to restore...

  • Does not detect my HARD drive in the BIOS

    Yesterday, I bought DT01ACA300 of HARD drive and it does not detect.
    I've tried it on two motherboards (different ports and different controllers: AMD, Intel chipset JMicron chipset) with different powers and signal cables (which do not work with my player Samsung HDD and DVD SATA Lite-on), but it won't do no good...

    It seems that the only thing that might have caused it may be the power supply, but I can't check it out because I don't have a spare. I tried to disable most of the unnecessary controllers on MB to lower energy consumption, but it did not help.

    From what I've read on the Internet, it seems that it is not I can do by myself and it is very likely defective drive, but I still have some hope that I can make it work...

    It would be a big problem to return to calm: I'll have to send in another city in the authorized service center so that they would check it, and then only, I can get a replacement (if noone will fly it by then, which can happen...).

  • After the upgrade to vista SP2, windows does not start.

    I have download and install vista SP2, everything goes well with the installation, no error, it ends without a problem, then it restarts my computer and after reboot, it comes up saying that windows didn't start (or your computer might not start)

    I have 2 choices, start windows normally, that does nothing when I pick it up, the other option is to fix the problem, when I choose that it restore my computer to until I installed SP2, ive tried 3 times now with no luck.

    also on a note related, when I try and open internet explorer 7, it crashes, it is said that she is looking for a fix for the problem and suggests so I run windows update, which is what suggested I download SP2.

    any help anyone can give would be most appreciated.

  • Load of gadgets in a random order after installation of the Vista SP2

    I have two Vista Home Premium 64 PC, one with an Intel Core 2 Quad CPU and the other an AMD Athlon 64 processor. Since the update SP2 of Vista, PC AMD load randomly gadgets when loading of account user or administrator, then the Intel PC continues to load them in the right order.

    I followed some discussions on issues like, particullarly just after the update was released, but have found no solution was offered this job. Don't back to SP1 makes no sense when SP2 works fine on both my PC except for this one problem. I remember as part of SP2 improvements in the effectiveness of Gadgets and believe that service pack may have been buggy. There is no other anomalies that occur on a PC.

    Is anyone aware of a fix for this? Before SP2, I think I'll stop Gadgets and try gadgets Google or Yahoo, if it cannot be resolved.

    Note first of all, what about placing the elements not anchored where they would be so grounded. This would be simply place the items on the desktop in the sidebar, that would show them so low place on the screen below anchored points, but you'd have a dickens of a time access without closing the sidebar. With lots of gadgets, those anchored would cover those under the box. Nice thought, but not a practical solution.

    Now, as I left the thing alone for a few days, I have connected at the start of this suggestion and noted that the gadgets that I had left at the dock were in the same position when I finally logged, as well as the posted items. It was the first time that they had not scrambled. So I closed and then reopened the sidebar, and they maintained the position. I moved their autour, closed, and then reopened and the same thing, everything remained in post.  So I have carefull brought all but two gadgets, I was wondering if when they move some on the second "page" if it left the jostling. But again, all is well in the sidebar. So I disconnected and turn it back on, and they are perfect. Even with a reboot and a connection, all of a sudden, everything is back to normal and the sidebar is to remember where everything was.

    I have not checked to see if there was a Windows Update today which may have addressed, but otherwise I did correct it, it just fixed itself! For me, this issue is closed.

  • Why can't I show my battery icon after installation of the Vista SP2

    I recently installed Vista SP2 and my Volume, network and power system icons have disappeared since that time.  I go into the bar area tasks and menus then Notification and check boxes for Volume and power network are grayed out, the clock is always accessible.

    Can someone tell me how to solve this problem, I have to go back to a previous restore point, or do I have to uninstall SP2

    I had the same problem, but only with the battery and the sound icons, the network was ok. Chris-technician support suggested re-installing the drivers, after checking the driver updates. My drivers are up to date, so I reinstalled from the Device Manager and regained control of the display check boxes in the config of the taskbar menu. Strange thing is that I had to reboot twice more that the fix would "take." But now I have the icons in the taskbar and they work.

  • Vista SP2 DFS does not display correctly

    Apparently with the installation of SP2 there are a few changes in the way Vista handles distributed file systems.  It seems that the major change was because when you copy a file to a DFS folder window would check the size available on the host DFS, not disk space available on the drive where the actual file is stored, and you get an error if it was too much.

    I'm not sure exactly what has been changed, but Vista now shows files with a shortcut icon.  Unfortunately, the problem occurs when programs try to access the folder, including Autocad.  It simply does not - it is no longer considered a valid location.  When you try to access the folder by double clicking, nothing happens... at all.

    Another problem is when economy it will always produce by default, the root of my documents folder, not the former saving location.

    The problem has been resolved with version of AutoCAD 2011.

  • "Review updates" Vista sp2 page does not load.

    My computer has windows Vista Home Premium sp2 32 x and updates are checked for every day. There are 2 updates important and 2 Optional updates listed at this time.

I am the administrator and the only user of this computer. It's not part of a corporation, company or home network...

    Hello

    I suggest that you follow these steps and check if the problem persists.

    Step 1:

    I would temporarily disable all security software and check if the problem persists.

     

    http://Windows.Microsoft.com/en-us/Windows-Vista/disable-antivirus-software
     
    Note: Antivirus software can help protect your computer against viruses and other security threats.  In most cases, you should not disable your antivirus software. If you need to disable temporarily to install other software, you must reactivate as soon as you are finished. If you are connected to the Internet or a network, while your antivirus software is disabled, your computer is vulnerable to attacks.
     
    Step 2:

    Test the issue in a clean boot State.

    Note: Follow step 7 to your computer as usual.
