This format is supported by many software vendors. ISO image files typically have afile extension of .ISO.They may also have an extension of .IMG or .NRG (Nero’s proprietary disc image format).ISO files are actual mirror images or ghost images of complete CDs or DVDs. ISO imagescan be written or burned on to discs, using many disc writing/recording programs like Nero,Roxio’s Easy CD Creator, etc.When you download a file with an extension of .ISO or .IMG, and double click on it to open,if you don’t have a disc image writing program like the ones mentioned above, Windowsshows a dialogue box, asking you to choose a program to use for writing/burning the imagefile.Windows cannot open this fileTo use the programs contained in the ISO file, you have to write or burn it on to a CD or aDVD (depending on the size of the ISO file). If you don’t have a disc writing program likeNero or Easy CD Creator, download and install a free program like ImgBurn. It’s completelyfree to use.Writing or burning an ISO image file to disc is a little bit different than writing or burningnormal data files. But you only have to click the right button in the program to do this for you.You don’t have to worry about how the program works. Examples of ISO files are operatingsystem downloads, like the many Linux distros, and any other bootable discs like theKaspersky Antivirus Rescue CD ISO.How to burn .ISO or .IMG files with ImgBurn?Below, you can find detailed instructions, how to download, install and use the Imgburnprogram to burn ISO image files to a blank disc.
  2. 2. 1. Download the free ImgBurn program for burning ISO image files, from here. Afterdownloading it, double-click to run it. You’ll get the Windows’ Open File Security Warningdialogue box. Click on Run.Download free ImgBurn2. The ImgBurn setup Wizard starts. Click Next.ImgBurn Setup Wizard3. Click the “I accept …” checkbox on the License Agreement page and click Next.

You may close the ImgBurn log, but it’s niceto leave it open, since it gives details of what the program is doing. Click the “Write imagefile to disc” button.
  5. 5. 9. On the next screen, select the ISO file, which you want to burn, using the folder button nearthe top. You can uncheck the Verify check box. If you want to burn more than one disc, youcan select the number of copies on the right. Then click on the big Write button (the greencolored play button) to write the image to disc.Click the Write button10. ImgBurn starts writing the image file to disc and shows the progress bars as seen below. It also gives somestatus messages about the write operation, in the log below. If you want to eject the disc after writing, you canselect the checkbox labeled “Eject tray”. There are other options which you may want to select on the followingscreen.
  6. 6. Disc Write progress11. After the disc writing is complete, ImgBurn gives an “Operation CompletedSuccessfully” message and if you have working sound and speakers, music will be heard for afew seconds.Operation Completed Successfully12. The ISO file is written to the disc and you can check the disc. You may need to eject thedisc before you can see its contents.There’s another method to burn ISO files to disc, detailed below.Using ISO Recorder powertoy to burn ISO files to disc.ISO Recorder is a free Windows tool using which, you can write or burn ISO image files toCDs/DVDs, using a simple right click on the ISO file in My Computer or Windows Explorer.
  7. 7. Just like you write files to a disc, right from within Windows Explorer, you can do the samefor ISO files.To download this tool or for more information, visit the author’s Web page.After you have downloaded ISO Recorder from the above page, here are the steps to install it:1.

Nothingappears on the screen and after about 2 seconds, the computer turns itself off.I have pulled the power cord out and in, hoping that would fix it, but nothinghappened.Is there any way to turn the computer on?There may be one or more of the following reasons, why your computer shuts downimmediately after powering ON. You should go through each of the below troubleshootingsteps to solve this problem.1. Is this a newly built computer?Did you recently build this computer? If yes, you should re-check your configuration. Theremay not be a problem with the hardware but something may not be properly configured,which is causing the computer to power off, after turning on. Check your motherboardmanual and see if the jumper settings, if any, are correct.2. Has something inside the computer become loose?Remove and re-insert all the cables, cards and RAM. A loose connection can also make thecomputer to power on and then immediately power off. This is a basic step in computertroubleshooting and more than 50 percent of the computer problems are due to loose cables orcards.3. Do you hear a musical siren from the computer speaker?If your computer gives a musical siren (a sound like dee-doo-dee-doo) for sometime, beforefinally powering off, it’s shutting down because of the CPU overheat protection circuit. Thismay happen if there’s a loose or improperly connected heat-sink/fan, or if the fan becomesdefective and stops. Check and make sure that the heat-sink is tightly fit to the processor (theCPU) and the fan connected and working at a good speed. Most motherboards have a CPUfan speed monitor in the BIOS setup.Here are some YouTube videos about properly installing a CPU, heatsink and fan:Intel Cpu Install

Is the 110/220v voltage selector switch at the back of the power supply, set up correctly?Most computer power supplies have a power selector switch at the back-side. The selectedvoltage is printed on the switch. Setting this switch to an incorrect voltage setting can damagethe power supply and your computer. In most cases, your computer won’t turn on at all, if youset it wrongly, but it’s possible that the computer may turn on and immediately turn off.The voltage that this switch should be set to depends on the country where you are. In somecountries, it is 110v, in other countries, it is 220v. If you’re travelling to a foreign countrywith your computer, you should check this information before using the computer in thatcountry, and then set the power supply switch accordingly, before you power up thecomputer.If your power supply doesn’t have such a switch, it selects the voltage automatically and youshouldn’t worry about this. Click here to watch a video showing power supply removal. Thevoltage selector switch is clearly explained in this video.5. Test the computer power supply.A simple and easy way to test the power supply is to remove it from the computer andconnect it to a working computer. Then, power it ON. If the computer boots up, the powersupply is fine.Another method to test the power supply uses a power supply tester.You can get a cheap power supply tester for less than 8 USD. Click here for a list of powersupply testers, which you can buy online.If you don’t have access to another computer or can’t test the power supply in anothercomputer for any reason, don’t want to spend on a power supply tester, here’s an easy way totest it yourself. But be careful, as shorting the wrong pins can have bad results. Also note thatjust the power supply fan spinning doesn’t always mean that the power supply is good, but ifyou can’t test it in other ways, this method can be useful.On the ATX power connector, as shown below (a 20 or 24 pin connector, which connects tothe motherboard), simply short pin no. 14 (in case of 20 pin connector) or pin no. 16 (in caseof 24 pin connector), which is the green wire), to any of the (black) ground pins, which are3,5,7,13,15,16,17. These pin numbers are usually printed on the back of the ATX powerconnector, but even if they are not there, you can still recognize the green colored wire. Thereis only one green wire on the ATX power connector, so you can’t go wrong.
  12. 12. Note: Shorting means connecting a piece of metal wire between two points.For this, you may even use a U shaped, metal hair pin. Or use a paper clip straightened andmade into a U shape, to short the two pins, as shown in the above images. After you shortthem with the paper clip or hair pin, turn on power to the power supply. The power supply fanat the back should start spinning. This tells us that the power supply is good.Here’s a YouTube video about testing a computer power supply, using the above method.If you tested the power supply as shown in the video above, and the power supply fan doesn’tspin at all, the power supply is dead or the fan is defective. It’s dangerous for non-techniciansto try to replace the power supply fan, or repair the power supply, so just get a new powersupply or use an old but good and working power supply.6. Check and replace the power ON switch.In rare cases, the power ON switch (on the front panel of the computer case), may be faulty.You may test it with a multi-meter, which is set for the continuity test. But an easier way totest the power ON switch is by plugging-in the reset switch’s connector in place of the powerswitch connector, on the motherboard. And then, power on the system.If the computer powers ON with the reset switch, the power ON switch or the connecting wireis faulty. In any case, you can use the reset switch in place of the power ON switch, withoutphysically replacing the switch. Just leave the power ON switch disconnected and use thereset switch on the front panel, to power ON the computer.If you don’t like to replace the power ON switch with the reset switch, you can get a switch atelectronic stores like RadioShack. A switch shown here may work for you, or you can searchRadioShack for more such switches.7. Does the computer power up with minimal parts?Open up the computer and remove any add-on cards. Disconnect any drives including thehard drive and the CD/DVD drive. Also disconnect any external devices like printers,scanners or any USB devices.The minimal parts needed to boot the system are – the motherboard with the processor,heatsink and fan, RAM, video card and the power supply. If the computer powers up in thisway, then add the other parts, one at a time. Then, power up after adding each part. This way,
  13. 13. you can easily identify the part or device that is causing the computer to shutdown. Afteridentifying the problematic part, you can then test it in another computer, or replace it.8. Does the motherboard power up on the bench?Power off and unplug the computer’s power cord. Then, remove the motherboard out of thecase, along with the RAM and the processor with its heatsink and fan. If there’s a separatevideo/graphics card, use that too. Also, remove the power supply and connect power to themotherboard. Don’t use any other card or device. Connect the output of the video card to themonitor and check whether this barebones system powers up on the bench. If it powers up thisway, the problem is somewhere inside the case.Here’s a set of images, showing the motherboard powered up on the bench:Here’s a set of videos, showing how to take a computer apart:Part 1 Taking a Computer ApartPart 2 Taking a Computer ApartPart 3 Taking a Computer Apart9. Is there an electrical short inside the computer case?If the computer doesn’t power ON, even with minimal parts inside the case, power it off andunplug the computer from the mains. Then, closely inspect the computer case for any shorts.Usually, shorts are caused by screws that fall inside the case. These screws may come incontact between the motherboard and the case, and cause a short. The motherboard may alsobe touching the metal case at some place to cause a short. There could be other causes of ashort and again, you should closely inspect the case.Hold the computer case and gently shake it sideways. If there’s a struck screw, it may comeloose by doing this. If you see a screw at a place where your hand can’t reach, use a pair oflong nose pliers or tweezers to remove the screw.If you tried to power up the motherboard on bench (see point no 8), and it powers up fineoutside the case, an electrical short inside the case is most likely the cause of the computer notpowering on. But at times, this may cause the computer to power on for a second and thenpower off immediately. If you’re unable to detect the reason of the short inside the case, youmay want to take the help of a computer professional, or replace the computer case.
  14. 14. 10. If you tried all the above steps and your computer still powers off, after turning on,you should take the help of a computer professional, or from a computer repair service.You can also take help from your computer manufacturer.

The driver may be corruptedor missing. (Code 39)This is a Device Manager error code. A Code 39 error is usually caused by a missing driver,or by a Windows Registry issue. A Code 39 error can apply to any hardware device in DeviceManager. A Code 39 error usually appears on optical drives like CD and DVD drives. Any ofMicrosoft’s operating systems can experience a Code 39 Device Manager error.Possible Solutions:1. First try to restart your computer. There is always a possibility that a Code 39 errormight be caused by some fluke with Device Manager or your BIOS.2. If you recently installed a device or made changes in Device Manager prior to seeingthe Code 39 error, undo whatever changes you made to see if the Code 39 error goesaway. (Depending on what changes you made, this could mean removing the newlyinstalled device, rolling back the driver to a previous version or using the SystemRestore to undo Device Manager changes. Remember to restart your computer afterundoing changes.)3. Delete the UpperFilters and LowerFilters registry values. A common cause ofCode 39 errors is the corruption of two specific registry values in the DVD/CD-ROMDrive Class registry key. You can also try deleting similar values in the WindowsRegistry if the Code 39 error appears on hardware other than a DVD or CD drive.4. Reinstall the device drivers. Remove the currently installed driver and then letWindows install it over again.
