Cd/dvd Freezes Computer


Every time i insert a cd/dvd into the drive the computer freezes. Then once i eject the cd/dvd all is well again. Drivers are up to date, the troubleshooting help just hangs as well. I installed from a full version of windows 7. Im really lost and really aggravated at this point. I just bought it today and cannot get support ? What is up with that.

Computer Freezes And Restarts

I have bought a new computer in late december 2009 and from the beginning i've been having two problems, the computer randomly restarts and more seldom but still a problem, the computer freezes. These events can happen with a frequency less than one time each day and sometimes as often as three times a day. The computer can be on reasonable load or hardly any load at all when it happens.

My computer parts looks like the following and i've got windows on one of my two ssds:

Western digital caviar black wd2001fass 64mb 2tb
Lg bh08ls20
Corsair dominator gt ddr3 pc12800/1600mhz cl8 4x2gb
Gainward geforce gtx 275 896mb physx pci-express 2. 0, 2xdvi
Gigabyte geforce 210 oc hdmi 512mb
Antec p183
Asus p7p55d-e premium
Antec cp-850 850w
Microsoft windows 7 ultimate eng
Intel core i7 860
Intel x25-m g2 160gb
Logitech wave keyboard (sv)
Lg w3000h

The first time i've received a message when windows was shutting down was just a while ago, and it said something about the memory. I have run memtest86 which showed no problems earlier. I can't open the mini-dump file but got hte following message this one time (have not had any messages like these before and the event viewer hasn't given me any useful information).

Problem signature:
Problem event name: bluescreen
Os version: 6. 1. 7600. 2. 0. 0. 256. 1

Computer Freezes While Downloading Videos From Youtube

A few days ago, while having a video conference with my friend from spain(i'm in ireland), my pc froze completely and nothing worked but the hard reboot. Now it's happening almost every time i try to download any . Flv video. Sometimes i can see . Flv videos for 1 hour, some times for 5 minutes before i have to reboot the machine again.

I was thinking it was firefox browser  but by my surprise it happened with explorer too. I was googling the subject and some forums suggest update drivers. And they are updated and still the same. Another sites blame on windows 7, but i bought my laptop in december2009 and never had this issue before. It's happening since 21st of march 2010. Why is faulty now? I've been on the same web pages always, no hacker's or weird sites. I'd really appreciate if some one can help me out with this issue before is getting worse.

My features are:
Windows 7 home premium
Hewlett packard hp g61 notebook pc
Pentium dual core cpu t4300 @ 2. 10 ghz
4. 00 gb ram
64-bit operating system

Cd/dvd Not Visible Under My Computer After Upgrade

I have just upgraded to windows 7 from vista and my cd/dvd drive will not work and is not visible under my computer. I have the acer upgrade dvd with applications and drivers but without the d drive working it's no help. I have an acer 4810t-8480 and was upgrading to windows 7. Step 1 and 2 went fine. But when it asked for me to put the dvd back in for step 3, it could not read it. I tested the drive with other cds and they are not read either. I have done the reboot and checked the device manager. There is non d drive/cd drive listed.

Cd-dvd Drive Missing Or Not Visible In Computer

Latest version of cdrom.sys driver is correctly installed and detected in "device manager". Reinstalling is not helping. High-low filters solution does not apply. Filter are not present. When opening the key with regedit. Window 7 automatic troubleshooter detect the problem with the statement "the drive is not assigned a drive letter" but cannot assign a new letter.

"Computer management" detects the cd drive but the drive letter is missing and the assignment a new one is not allowed: when trying to assign a new drive letter manually, the new letter assigned shows in the screen for about one second and immediately disappears again. Different drive letters have been tried in case standard "e" could be somehow locked by some other software or virtual disk.

Using "computer management" i can mount the cd drive it in a folder in other hard drive and explore/operate cd contents without problem. I am using this for the time being as a temporary solution for having access to information in my cds/dvds. This is happening in asus k52jr laptop with windows 7 home premium-64. Dvd-cd driver is a hitachi hl-dt. St dvdram gt30n.

Dvd Drive Disappears From My Computer After Sleep

On windows 7, running on an hp pavilion p6020a desktop pc, after waking from 'sleep', my dvd drive no longer appears (disappears from) 'my computer'. The drive still opens/closes, but will not launch autorun or be accessed via explorer or a command prompt.

I have already removed the upper/lower value registry items when running vista (and they are no longer appearing when viewed with regedit either).

Dvd Drive Disappeared When I Rebooted Computer

My dvd drive disappeared when i rebooted computer after removing suggested programs before i upgrade to windows 7 64 from vista 64. Now i can't launch the dvd? The upgrade advisor suggested i uninstall itunes, intel proset/wireless, and bluetooth stack for windows by toshiba. It also had me upgrade the driver for my panasonic mfstation scan. After i completed those items, the installer had me reboot computer. Now, i am unable to open the dvd as the drive is no longer visible, and the dvd does not automatically start when i insert it into the drive.

Windows 7 was installed on my pc . The dvd-cd-rom icon doesn't show up when i click on my computer. I only see the c-drive and the floppy disc drive. How do i trouble=shoot this?

Readyboost Issue: Computer Won't Display Physical And Virtual Dvd Drives

After some nasty bsod and a clean reinstall of windows to resolve that problem i've noticed that sometimes after startup the computer won't display correctly the physical and virtual dvd drives. And the system is too slow. I tried in several times to restart it to see if the problem will disappear but the restart process was taking ages to complete. Till i've disconnected the 4gb sdhc card which was dedicated to readyboost. I tried restarting the computer without the sdhc card in it. Went fine. Everything was ok till i inserted back the card then suddenly the computer slows dramatically stops responding and the problem mentioned above reappears!

My question :is it really a readyboost issue or  some tech fault from my computer? And what can i do to fix it. Now i'm using the computer without the sdhc card and the readyboost function.

My pc config is: toshiba satellite  a 300 intel core2duo centrino 1, 83 ghz 4gb ram
And the driver for the card reader is from o2 and it is the latest one!

Dvd Maker Cannot Create The Dvd

I'm getting this like everyone else on a windows 7 64 bit. The dvd burner is turned on, working, etc. I have 251 gb of free space. The problem is that this error message is so worthless, i.e. No real specifics like "out of space" , "codec error", "invalid input file", "hey, i just don't like you"  . There is nothing to work with. The input is a home movie avi which plays just fine in windows media center. The "just die for no apparent reason" point seems to be 38% in windows media center and 17% in windows dvd maker and the blank disk is kicked out.

If nothing else microsoft ought to build a fix that at least dumps some useful error messages about the failed process so there's a direction to take. At least under dvd maker the status was "encoding" and it dies during that. Windows media center tells you nothing, but the vague error. Oh, yes i did try again after a fresh re-boot and am running nothing else. Same problem.

Win 7 Freezes

I have a dell inspiron 530 that i got about 1. 5 yrs ago - intel dual core2. 33 ghz/3 gb memory/500 gb hard drive/128mb nvidia video card originally with vista installed. I purchased an upgrade to win 7. It installed fine but now the computer after a few minutes use freezes to the point where i need to totally power down the system - ctl-alt-del has no response. I have been able to make this go away by having all power saving measures wide open to always on. It even froze when the only power saving measure was to turn the monitor off.

I have checked the dell site - have the latest bios/drivers from there and also updated to the latest nvidia drivers and still it freezes. Any suggestions? I'd preferably like to utilize the power saving features and they worked just fine under vista, its just the upgrade to win 7 that has caused it to freeze. Also, nothing found in the event viewer when it locks up.

Update Freezes At 0%

My computer hasn't been working for quite some time now. My automatic updates have not been updating properly, it just remains at 0% when i move over the icon on the bottom bar.

I left it on that screen once for 2 days and nothing happened. I have

Install Freezes

I am running windows 7 ultimate and trying to install a program that they say is compatible with it. It is a scuba dive log program from aeris dive. When i start the setup file it opens install shield & goes through the initial parts, identifying the system, where the files will load etc but when it gets to the screen where it starts setup it just freezes.

I have tried to run it as administrator (i have admin rights) but no luck. I tried to run microsoft installer cleanup utility but that too locks up. I shut off all of my virus and spyware blocking tools and no effect. The file is ok as i can install it on another pc.

Briefcase Freezes

I used briefcase in xp pro as a form of quick daily backup tool with an encrypted removable usb drive. It worked well.

I finally got the security issues solved to allow the usb drive to work with users, however briefcase is not functioning properly.

In windows 7, the drive takes forever to load, then when i ask to "update all" it either gives an error message about insufficient memory ( i have 4gb on board and at the time of failure, it's less then 30% full), or it freezes up completely and i need task manager to shut it down.

I tried deleting the briefcase and creating a new one and that doesn't help.

Any suggestions?

Momentarily Freezes

This is a very vague problem i am having here, but bear with me, ill try to provide as many details as i can i'll start off with the basics. I am on an acer aspire 5517 laptop running windows 7 home premium 64 bit with 4 gigs of ram and an amd athlon l310 dual core proc at 1. 2 ghz. Recently, my computer started to have this problem.

Every so often, the computer will just hang up, but only for a second or two, at longest 3 seconds. When these freezes occur and i happen to be monitoring resource usage, when the freeze is over, i will note that cpu usage is at 100 percent with the 'system' task using 99 percent.

This is mostly just a minor annoyance as when i am working, the mouse will momentarily freeze up as well as whatever i was working on. This is most noticeable when i am watching video, as the video will freeze. Sometimes however, the audio will continue playing and when the freeze stops, i will see all the frames in between when it freeze and where it currently is fly by very quickly.

However, the audio will sometimes stop as well. Another example is when i am typing and one of these freezes will happen. The screen will stop updating, but if i keep typing, all the text will appear when the freeze stops. As far as i have noticed, this problem is not local to any one specific program, it is a problem with windows itself i believe, but i'll leave that judgment to the professionals.

Freezes On Startup

I have a computer that is one day old and will not start up (windows 7 home premium 64 bit). It will freeze at "windows starting. " It will freeze under safe mode at the classpnp.sys file. I have attempted to boot from a recovery dvd and it will not not not boot from it and freeze, and the bios settings are set to boot from the optical drive 1st. It will freeze when i try to enter the repair console.

I am out of ideas as to what to do, and i can find no answers online.

The comlete story is as follows: i was installing various programs fine (office, symantec, turbotax 04-09, etc). After installing adobe photoshop, the os "freaked out. "  I have no other way to describe it. Various components of the screen starting flickering (not the entire screen, but certain parts of programs). The touchpad became unresponsive, jerky, and seemed to click on its own. The computer began a shutdown sequence - because updates had queued, those began installing once the os logged off. Upon power on, i made it to the welcome screen. Each time, the touchpad was unresponsive, and the keyboard seemed to have its own inputs, because it would freeze and lock me out of the system.

After a few cold shutdowns, the touchpad and keyboard stopped acting weird (i know this sounds crazy, but i swear its true), and i was able to log in. I created the recovery dvds using the vaio console, uninstalled photoshop, and did a system restore to before the photoshop installation. The computer shut down, but has never been able to completely boot into the windows welcome screen.

Win 7 Freezes For 10 Second

I installed windows 7 on a new hard drive. Immediately i started getting short system hangs. The drive light comes on steadily and the freezes last for about 10 seconds. During that time my mouse will still move although clicking anywhere either does nothing or brings up the 'not responding' box. These freezes can occur every 2 minutes or not for an hour or more. It doesn't matter if i am in firefox surfing, listening to music, or just sitting with the desktop displayed and doing nothing.

I have an intel e6700 with 4gbram what have i checked:i have updated my drivers. (Sb xfi, ati5850)i have tried a clean boot but the problem still persists. I have checked online for solutions. I uninstalled my bit defender (problem still existed so reinstalled)i stopped all unnecessary services, windows media player, indexing, etc. There are no errors shown in the logs when this occurs. If this problem can't be solved, i want my money back and will happily return to vista 64 which i did not have any problems with.

Freezes On Networking

I have done a clean install of win 7, 32 bit, on my inspiron 9300. I have only 2 m of memory. Everything works great except the networking. When running on cable or wireless, the system will freeze and need a reboot. This can happen in 5 or 10 minutes or 1 or 2 hours. When i run the machine in safe mode with networking, i have no problem. Also, when i connect to the internet via my motorola droid, i have no problem.

I've tried using a wireless usb. While the system runs longer, i will still get a freeze. If i pull out the usb while using the machine and plug it in and out as needed to connect to the network or internet, i do ok.

Here is information from the event viewer after a freeze:

Critical 4/5/2010 8:01:11 am  kernel-power 41 (63) - the system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.
