Verify that the CD/DVD is readable by another system.
Verify that the CD can read the media you are tying to use, e.g. if it is a DVD make sure it is a DVD rom...hey it happens to us all :)

1) it may just be a driver issue. look up the control panel / devices. if you see a yellow marker , then the drive is at fault . find the driver and install, then try again.

2) maybe the cdrom is dead , try change to another one.

3) if you dont have spare , plug in an external usb cdrom drive . this way , you can still do the update. many dell laptops use external usb cdrom.

Long answer:

Your computer tries to "boot" from various devices:
* the 'A:' diskette drive
* the CD-ROM drive
* a bootable image on a USB memory-stick
* via the network-adapter, if there is a "boot-server" somewhere on your local network.

So, enter BIOS SETUP, and check that your disk-drive is one of "enabled" boot devices. Also, check that the disk-drive is "detected" by the BIOS.

If your disk-drive is not connected, or not responding, and there is nothing in the 'A:' drive and nothing in the CD-ROM drive, then the PXE (Pre eXecution Environment) will try to "talk" to a boot-server on your network. If no such server is found, you get the "check cable connection" message, and you are prompted to put some "bootable" media into the 'A:' drive or the CD-ROM drive.

Short answer: your disk-drive has "died". You need to replace it, and to install Windows onto the new disk-drive.

I hope that you recently made a good "backup" of all your data files!

Dell demension 3100 dvd plays any disk ok but will not burn


when you try to save or burn any data to disk, you should use burning programs just like nero or any other burning program. at the time when you click the button burn, it always ask you to insert disk such as CD/DVD +R or RW

My computer fell and when I turned it back on it's saying check cable connection..! PXE-E63: Error while initializing the NIC pxe-m0f:Exiting Intel pxe rom no bootable device


Usually, your computer tries to "boot" from multiple sources:

1. 3.5" diskette drive, if installed, functional, and a boot-diskette is inserted
2. CD-ROM drive, if installed, functional, and a boot-CD (such as the Windows XP CD-ROM) is inserted
3. disk-drive, if installed, functional, and the "boot" record can be read from the disk-drive
4. from the Ethernet network, via a "networked boot server"

So, "check cable" means that either no Ethernet cable is connected to the computer, or that the "networked boot server" is not installed, or the boot-server did not reply.

What this means is that your disk-drive was damaged by the fall, and the "boot" information cannot be read from the disk-drive.

So, you need to replace the disk-drive.

Ibm x series 226 attempt to install os and says no harddrive


Make sure that the motherboard and/or disk controller recognize the drives during POST.

Then check and see if IBM has a server installation CD-ROM that you can use boot the server and automatically load the correct drivers to prep for the OS install. I have downloaded installation CD ISO files from HP and Dell that walked me right through the OS install.

Another important consideration is that servers frequently use disk controllers that are not included in the operating system's driver files.
For example, when installing Windows OS on a RAID controller you must press F6 immediately after the installation CD-ROM starts up.
Later in the installation you will be prompted to insert a 1.44 diskette with the driver for your RAID controller.

The only challenge is to find the correct version of the driver and get it on a diskette.

I hope this helps.

Reinstallation CD will not run


When trying to boot from a CD on a Dell system you should put the CD in the CD-ROM tray and reboot the computer. When the initial Dell splash screen appears, you should press F12 (not F2 for BIOS) for a boot menu. In that menu you want to choose the CD-ROM drive. If you have made changes in BIOS you may want to undo them and try this way instead.

You can either do this in the BIOS or (easier) just run a Linux installer (such as Ubuntu) and it will offer to do it for you when it sees Windows-formatted partitions.
