ok i tried using that in the startup but it doesnt work that way, i put it in my documents and for some reason my docs is the only thing that i see when windows boots up so ijust put the bat in ther and now everytime it boots i have to manually run the bat file but now i dont have to do a 3 key and do all this crap just to boot, its actually doable for the time being, thanks man, now i need to find a way to fix this confused dvd drive, the thing is, it detects the drive sometimes but then it will disapear, this is a new laptop so im sure its not the drive, it also works well with vista so it may be a driver but i havnt been able to find anything for it :P
