Answers :

If it can boot up windows, then the harddisk is not locked(anymore, after entering the correct password),
a slow performance of windows can be sped up by performing a harddisk defragmentation (open windows explorer, right-click onto harddisk, switch to properties,\302\264then 'extras', perform a defragmentation for drive c:, give it time to finish)

to fix the arkward dvd/usb prob:

again open up win explorer and see if cd-rom drive is available, therefore recognized by windows at all.. if yes test-insert Original CD again, see if it can open it(does the CD/DVD-drive LED flash green several times and do you hear any noise from it?)

if not, shut down and enter BIOS while booting hitting either the Del,F1 or F2 button and look if under IDE devices the CD-is recognized by the laptop itself...
if not, set auto detecton for IDE- devices, go
through available menus until u find USB legacy support, enable as well, exit saving changes, reboot.
Again enter BIOS then change
BOOT DEVICE order sothat CD-drive is 1st,
any 3.5'' floppy drive second and harddisk 2nd or 3rd, exit saving changes again.
reboot and let windows come up again. check for cd/dvd-drive again(see procedure as described above), check if windows does recognize your usb-device(mp3 player) now.

if that does not work and during booting you get message'bad CMOS checksum error' you will have replace the CMOS button-battery on
the mainboard, for it may have gone flat...

this means disassembling the laptop
if that is the case, see a technician to work for you or come again with another query.

hope i could be of help
