Are you saying that you don't see your cd-rom while your in windows? If this is the case, lets try to check if your cdrom is actually detected by your BIOS. Try doing this:

-completely shutdown the computer
-when you see the DELL logo, press F2 key on your keyboard
-your in BIOS whenever you see System Setup Utility on your screen
-scroll down to DEVICE INFO and check for removable media.

If you have questions or if you need further clarifications. Just message me

Thanks

I have a Fujitsu Lifebook P-2040 that I just reformatted. I'm going to install Windows 2K Professional (don't have the restore disks for XP Home). After I reformatted and restarted, nothing happens. There...


Is there any reason for your preference for Win 2K over Win XP Pro? XP Pro would be a better choice over Win 2K.

You may be able to selecting the CD as the alternate boot device by pressing F12 as the laptop is booting up.
I am not familar with BIOS key on your laptop but you can try these keys on a cold boot up (don't use a warm boot up - Ctrl+Alt+Del keys). Try:-
Del
F1
F2
F10
Ctrl+F1 or F2
Alt+F1 or F2
Esc+F1 or F2
Once you get into the BIOS you can change the boot order, set the CD as the first device. You should be able install Windows from the CD.

If these keys don't work go to the Fujitsu WEB site to download the manual, whilst you are there you will also need to download the drivers for your model laptop the Windows version of the devices that are installed on your laptop eg. audio, video, modem, LAN etc. These need to be installed after the Windows installation.

On my pc running win xp pack2 i want to install win 2000 pro. how can i do it? please suggest me.


You can either run a dual-boot system where you can boot into XP and Pro when you start your computer, or reformat and install 2k.

If you want to dual-boot you would need a blank partition on which to install it. Unfortunately if you do not already have more than one partition on your current drive, it would be difficult to split a single partition drive into adding another partition unless you are familiar with the tools required to perform such an operation.

However, if you only need to install 2k without having access to XP, all you need to do is insert the Win 2k disk and follow the installation wizard. When it comes to selecting where to install, it should show a partition containing winXP, which you can then install 2K to. Remember, all files on your XP install, including the operating system itself, will be removed. You would lose everything on that partition. If it is a single partition drive, anything on the drive is removed. You should back up any files you want to save by either transfering them to a different drive if you have one, or burning them to CDs/DVDs.

Select the partition you want to install to (if it's a single partition disk, there will only be one listed. If there are more partitions, you can select a different partition to install to which would allow you to keep XP), and I would recommend selecting reformatting the partition to NTFS.

Once it is done reformatting and copying files, it will ask to restart. Restart the computer, but do not press any keys upon startup when it pauses to ask to boot from CD. Wait until the 2K graphical installer loads from the disk, and then you can follow the setup wizard for 2K.

If you have any questions or problems, please add a new post stating them, and I will try to answer.

Windows XP not recognizing cds/dvds in my HP DVD640i


Most likely your CD-DVD burning software is corrupted. When that happens, the machine doesn't recognize the existence of the CD/DVD hardware. Clean up your machine, defrag, run a freeware registry cleaer-defragmenter (see C-net for a good one). Then Reinstall/upgrade your burning software (the Windows XP software is not sufficient) either from HP/Compaq, if it came with your machine, or the program website if you purchased it separately. You may find out which it is by using a marvelous freeware program called Belarc advisor.

Kaiwah, You never said how old the MB is, but it looks like the onboard video is bad. If it is still under warranty have them fix it. If not go out and get a new board. I have seen yours for about less than $100.00 bucks
