Hi,
I have Lenovo 3000 y500 series laptop. My problem is that i am unable to boot my pc from Win Xp CD.
I tried 3 different OS (Win xp-3, Win xp and win-98)
It is even not reading these Cds and showing 0 bytes free and 0 bytes used.
But its reading every other CD and DVD. Only not the ones which are bootable.
These Cds are working fine on my Desktop. Desktop is reading them fine and even booting from them.
pls help me....

what are you trying to accomplish?

are you trying to re-load windows onto the laptop?

doesn't that model have the 'hidden' partion that you can do the restore from?

if you use another disc, you MAY 'wipe-out' that 'hidden' restore partition, then you would have to download all the drivers and other software and have to reload them manually :(

IF it's a dvd-rom, probably WON'T read the cd

my pc has some viruses thats y i wanna reinstall Xp
you might download and run this program
TrendMicro HijackThis
http://www.trendsecure.com/portal/en-US/tools/security_tools/hijackthis

then click on the button:
do a system scan and save a logfile

DO NOT CLICK ON FIXING ANYTHING WITH THE PROGRAM
[most of the info there-in is harmless]

then COPY that logfile and paste it into a post here so that one of our malware experts can take a look at it and give you some valid suggestions, and, if you DO have a virus, whatever, help you clean it up

probably be a lot easier than a whole re-installation - especially with hardware giving you problems

I don't see any malware present, however Boonty Games now missing, is malware.


Download ATF Cleaner by Atribune.

  • Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
  • Under Main choose: Select All
  • Click the Empty Selected button.

Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program.




Download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from Here.

Double Click mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
  • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
  • Once the program has loaded, select "Perform Quick Scan", then click Scan.
  • The scan may take some time to finish,so please be patient.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to Restart.(See Extra Note)
  • The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy&Paste the entire report in your next reply.
Extra Note:

If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove,you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts,click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediatly.
