I'm not sure what that error means, but the first drive is usually drive 0 on computers. Maybe this will help. You can verify in BIOS. gl

It has bluetooth. You need to pair it to whatever you wish to connect to it.

Take a can of air and blow off the fans. One inside the little metal box called a power supply inside the main case.
Also the cpu has a fan and heat sink on it that gets dust built inside and needs cleaning.
Warning, always unplug the power cord. Make sure you are touching something metal in the case while touching the inside of the PC. It can protect it from static shock.

Also never shake an air can. And don't spray while it's upside down. The liquid can seriously burn you.

Inside most laptops, there is a WiFi Antenna. I once also had an issue with my laptop allowing me access, and then flicking off again. So every time I tried to use a program called "Steam" I would be disconnected from the servers. Inside the laptop, there is a wire that is attached to the WiFi receiver, that gets plugged into your laptops motherboard, If it is loose, just disconnect it completely, then plug it back in. If the antenna is warm, or hot. That means it is burnt out, and will continue not to work unless it is properly cooled. You CANNOT cool a WiFi antenna, so it is best to either search the web, and buy a new WiFi antenna that is the same model and brand as the one in your laptop, or just buy a LAN/Ethernet cable and play like that.
*NOTE - When you first buy a Ethernet cable, the laptop WiFi antenna must be removed, otherwise the laptop will switch between the two, and will make you periodically loose internet connection. Also, the computer will still (not as much) continue to disconnect, and reconnect for a while. Roughly 8-10 days, and then everything should smooth-en out. Here is a link to an image of a WiFi antenna for laptop:
Or, yours may look something like this:
Hopefully this helps you!

If you have a Windows 7 system, log into safe mode by pressing F8 when your computer is booting up. Select "safe mode with command prompt" and press enter. Wait until the windows login screen comes up and then a command prompt should appear. Type net user in the command prompt and hit enter. Once you have done this, you should now see a list of all the users associated with the account. Type net user "Your user account name" and then your new password and hit enter. This should reset your password for the following user account.

Right click my computer, go to Manage, then to Services and Applications, then to services. Scroll down till you find the application that is using your webcam double click it go to the drop down box click on it and choose Disable then click Apply. then you can choose to stop the program immediately or just exit out of all this and restart your computer this will prevent that program from starting when windows starts. The way you were doing it is as you know only temporary. Hope this helps and good luck.

The drive needs to be reformatted and ready to start over.
When that has been done, you should be able to boot from the CD with the operating system on it automatically. The startup code is on the CD and tends to do everything for you.

To activate the BIOS utility, press <F2> during the POST while the
computer logo is being displayed.
To set the boot sequence in the BIOS utility, activate the BIOS utility, then select Boot from the categories listed at the top of the screen.
You can then choose the order in which the BIOS seeks bootable media. For your purposes the optical drive needs to be the first option. Do remember that during the boot sequence there are only about 5 seconds where it will say "Press any key to boot from CD......" after which it will revert to booting from the hard drive.
If you go to this site,
Drivers and Manuals
you can choose your model from the options lists and can then download drivers and documents which you may need after your downgrade.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
