Hello Suzanne,

You may be required to go into the registry to fix this issue, so if you are not too comfortable going into the registry, you might want to get help (but I have written the instructions you can follow)

Check the Device Manager.

Start > Control Panel > Double Click the System icon > Click the Hardware Tab at the top of the box that opens > Click the Device Manager Button.

Click the [+] sign beside the category DVD/CD-ROM Drives

After clicking the [+] sign and the DVD/CD-ROMS Devices category opens up, is there a DVD Drive listed? If there is, when you right-click the DVD Drive and choose properties, does it give any error code, like Error code 39 in the grey box that appears when you choose properties?

Normally the DVD drives use the default Windows drivers. Try right clicking the DVD Drive under the DVD/CD-ROM Drives category in Device Manager and choose uninstall. Then reboot the computer and Windows will find the device and re-install drivers automatically.

If you are still getting the error or the Drives do not show up in My Computer ("poste de travail"), it may be an update or some other program that added data to the DVD's driver data in the registry. Try this:

1) Close all open programs

2) Click on Start, Run, and type "regedit" (without the quotations) and press Enter. Back up (File > Export) the registry before you make any changes)

3) Click on the plus signs [+] next to the following folders


  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
  • SYSTEM
  • CurrentControlSet
  • Control
  • Class
  • Left Click and Highlight: {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} **Make sure you choose this exact key**
4) This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand side panel:


  • UpperFilters
  • LowerFilters
  • UpperFilters.bak
  • LowerFilters.bak
5) If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed on the right hand side, right-click on them and choose Delete

6) After deleting the keys, close the Registry Editor


7) Reboot your computer


8) Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.


This should fix the problem, let me know if it worked for you,

RyMS

I find very hard to open my dell optiplex Gx240 computer case(formfactor)model number:DHM,serial number:FKDLC11,fcc class:B.Please i want to also change the language of the very pc from french to...


You must push both buttons on the top and bottom of the case all the way in, and then the case will open up like a **** shell. It can be very stiff from the hinge and all the wires.
If you perform a repair install with the Windows XP cd, it should allow you to switch to the English version as it asks you what region/language you want to use during setup. But you should be able to switch to English via the Language bar or the Regional and Language Options Control Panel.

Stuck in french setting - need english


If you are using Windows XP (could beVista... but not certain)

Go to Start > Control Panel > Regional and Language Options:

Under your Regional Options Tab, be sure that it is set to English (United States) if that is where you reside.

Then go to the Language Tab, and under Text Service and Input Language, click on Details... be sure to select English under the Default Input Language. Click Apply to all windows and that should do it.

SETTINGS FROM FRENCH TO ENGLISH


There are three areas you can (or cannot) set languages.
1. Operating system (Windows most probably) Unfortunatelly you cannot change the operating system language. (Except Vista Ultimate and Vista Enterprise edition and having the right MUI)
Other windows languages are not changeable without re-installing the current op.sys. and of course you have to have the right language based op. sys. on cd or on dvd.
2. BIOS language change: It can be change if the BIOS flashable and the BIOS provider released the required version in your language. (Mostly default language is english) Some BIOS can be set to other language without flashing it. Look in the BIOS menu first. It's not easy to find if its set to another language but try every sub menu than you will find it.
3. The regional and keyboard settings. Its a basic setup in the control panel--->Regional and Language (GLOBE ICON) ---> firs and second tab you have to choose the desired language.

My computer is all in french and i wanna change it to english


What was your original language?

If it was original in english and you changed. goto Control Panel, Regional and Language option and make sure everything is set for english .

If your original XP installation was in French, then you may have to obtain an English XP CD and re-install.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
