I don't use the internal audio.  I have 3 Presonus Firestudio Projects for audio, and I don't think they were on during that test, as I wasn't testing them.

 

i have never defragged the Y drive as it seemed that such a small amount indicated the need, I think.

 

trying to do error check, said C: was in use and couldn't be checked.

Said Y: needed to be dismounted.  

 

Going back and reading further steps, I see I need to schedule the C., but will post as far as I got before restarting and losing what I typed.

I chose schedule for the C: drive but on rebooting, nothing happened. I checked fragmentation of Y drive and it says 2%. Important?

I see I didn't read far enough again, before rebooting.  But I started over and am clearing the logs before rebooting.

I don't know if the scan/error check worked.  It took many hours for it to get to 23%, Hours later, when I check, the dos screen was gone and the windows sign in was there. I think it rebooted.

You can check the logs here:

Sometimes the System Update Readiness Tool for Windows 7 will fix things

This link is for 64 bit:
https://www.microsof...s.aspx?id=20858

 

It acts like you are installing a KB and takes several hours to finish.

 

 

Is it still not seeing the CD/DVD?

Window Repair All In One has a fix for that:

https://www.tweaking...all_in_one.html

We want the free version where it says:

4.8.1 - For all versions of Windows (6/3/2020) PAD File

Installer (37.16 MB)

Use one of the links.

Save and run by right click and Run As admin.

You can jump to Repairs then pick one of the preset ones and modify by unchecking everything but

Repair CD/DVD Missing/Not Working

 

Reboot when done.
