I have a Toshiba Satellite Laptop which runs Windows XP service pack 3 and I use IE7.
Please note im very much a computer novice and I thought this was the most appropraite forum for me to post for help (if this is not the case please kindly avise me where I should post).
The best way I can describe the problem is I used to be able to for example insert my memory stick from my camera into my inbuilt memory card reader and the photos would automatically just pop up on the screen and I could go from there (I have also tried a diffrent card with the same problem). Nowdays I put the memory card in the reader and it makes a click noise and goes in ok but nothing happens? On the task bar on the bottom right I get a little icon appear that says it safe to remove once card is removed icom disappears.
Also using the inbuilt CD/DVD drive I use to be able to input a CD/DVD in the drive and it would autimatically pop Windows Media Player and I was away nowdays I place a CD in the light flashes showing its doing something but nothing happens nor does Windows Media Player pop up. I have tried on occasion to bring up Windows Media Player manually and on occasion through trial and error on same occasions I can get the CD/DVD to play other times I just give up.
My question is it used to all work perfectly yet now I have these issues orginally I put it down to an older computer live with it but after using google it looks like it may be fixable? This computer novice seek's your help in that area thanks in advance.
