Question about HP Compaq Presario 2200 Notebook
It doesn'tread the cd/dvd drive. The cd rom spins, etc. Is there something we should check. I even tried an external drive and it doesn't read that either. Thank You
Tips for a great answer:
According to your problem first check the hard drive status and make sure that it is ok. If it doesn't detect in bios setup then you can change the cable of the hard drive. Also make sure that the DVD Rom working fine. If the hard drive doesn't detect while you begin setup then clear the bios first. Then reset the bios properly. You may need a firmware update also. If you can not continue the setup then break the partition of the hard drive. You can use partition break up software, like partition magic etc also. If it doesn't solve your problem then you may need to replace the hard drive. To check the hard drive status you can try with another OS installation. Best of luck.
