by Rohit Khurana on November 9, 2009


This is part 17 of the Ask Trouble Fixers series, we have picked up five questions from the emails we have received from our readers.


Trouble 1 :

I have a LG DVD ROM. It only reads a CD but is not able to read a DVD. – Sandesh


Looks like the lens of the DVD ROM had gone bad. You can try cleaning the lens of your DVD writer using lens cleaning kit or Lens cleaning disk. See this article for details : Not Able To Play Scratched CD / DVD


Trouble 2 :

I have a assembled PC with GigaByte mother board, inlet dual core processor running on a 1GB RAM. My computer is getting restarted or sometimes it gets hanged. When I run multiple applications the problem can be seen seriously. – Vijay


Your Computer seems to be having some heating problems. Check the processor fan and the casing fan. See this article for details : Fix Computer Hang Frequently


Trouble 3 :

I have downloaded file from one site. It plays with VLC Player, but file type is unknown, it is not like avi, mpg. To play in DVD players format is not recognizable- Thakur



We have written about determining the file type in this tutorial – Determine the file type of downloaded audio or video file. After you know the file type, you can rename it to that type, and make a video DVD using some DVD burning softwares like WinxDVD or CD Burn XP or Nero etc.


 Trouble 4 :

Whenever I start my Internet Explorer, after few min. "generic host error from win 32"
will appear at screen. When i press "don’t send" after that no pages will open. – Dev

Trouble 5 :

I have mini laptop, so it have no CD or DVD ROM. How can I format the laptop with USB
flash drive and Install windows on it. – Deep
