Re: MY CD ROM DOES NOT PLAY ANY VIDEO OR AUDIO FILE
Most likely this is a failed CD drive or failed CD reader board in the drive. You can try cleaning the lens, and uninstalling the drivers for the drive from the device manager, but most liky you will have to replace the drive. When you unistall the drivers, restart the machine. it will find the CD drive and reinstall the drivers automatically. If a lens cleaning kit, or reinstalling the drivers do not work, then I'm afraid the drive will need replaced.

Well, if you have a CD-ROM or a DVD-ROM drive, You can insert a Windows 7 installation disk and install it. If not, you can insert the disk in another computer and copy all files in a pen-drive. <You have to right click on the disc folder and select explore to do so.> Then, insert the pen-drive into your laptop and double click the setup file to install Win7 on your laptop!!
what do you mean not recognized? not detecting the drive or not reading? if not recognized by windows you can check the driver for drives in the windows if not reading it is the lens problem..if the lens problem, the solution only is to replace the lens or to replace the whole drive
You need to boot with your windows vista cd and select repair install. This will reinstall the windows files, including the ntldr file, leaving your data intact. Make sure you only do the repair install, if you do the full install, it may wipe your data.
on a friend's Windows 98 SE or Windows ME computer, create a floppy "Startup disk". Insert in your pc floppy drive and turn on. If floppy drive was not accessed, then get to BIOS and ensure "Boot from floppy drive" is set prior to "boot from hard drive". Once at first screen, select "Boot with CD-ROM driver". Insert CD-ROM and initiate entire re-install of Windows. Windows may do some self-restarting. At first restart do this: get to BIOS and ensure "Boot from hard drive" is set prior to "boot from floppy drive".
