You would be much better off to start a New Topic (Subject)- if you do that it will be listed at the top of a list of current Subjects (Topics) and more people are likely to see that and answer your questions.
Actually, you are not normally allowed to make a post in a Subject where the last post is so old - June 10 2008 - there must be a glitch in the software used on this site that prevents that.
At the top of the page, click on General Forums, then Windows XP.
Click on any Subject (Topic) title
Click on the New Topic icon at the top of the page, just under the Subject (Topic) title.
You need to provide as much description as you can about your problem(s). What you have typed so far is rather vague.
You posted in a Subject (Topic) about internet connection problems - do you have a problem with that?
Is your D drive a CD or DVD drive, or a second partition on a hard drive?
Are both computers brand name systems with their original brand name supplied software still on them?
E.g. Compaq, HP, Dell, Gateway, Toshiba emachines, etc.
If so, depending on the way the brand name system was set up, you may not be allowed to access anything on the second partition on the hard drive seen as D, or you may not be able to see that second partition on the hard drive at all and D is your CD or DVD drive.
You can't access a CD or DVD drive if it has no disk in it at the time, or if the tray for the drive is ejected at the time.
If a CD or DVD drive does have a disk in it, the disk must be a type the drive can recognize - e.g. a DVD disk cannot be read in a CD-Rom (only) drive or a CD burner (only) drive - they only read CDs.
If there is something wrong with the computer's power supply, a disk in a CD or DVD drive may not be recognized, but that's very unlikely on a laptop.
"when i open the drawer it won't recognize anything"
What do you mean by that?
Do you mean the tray on a CD or DVD drive, or a folder in Windows, or what?
"the computer screen freezes and cannot open any files."
When does it "freeze", and when you do what?
Anywhere in Windows, in certain places in Windows, or only when you're on the internet?
- for a true freeze, nothing works - if it just doesn't do something when you click on certain things that's a different problem
- if it doesn't do something when you click on certain things when you first start up the computer, wait until the programs that load when Windows first starts up have loaded completely - also, some programs load updates in the background when you first start up the computer - wait until the hard disk activity led has stopped blinking and has gone off .
