Question about Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop
I am having problems getting my cd drive to work when trying to download items from a cd or to install prombems also from a cd. When installing the program, the disc works up to the point whee the installation wizard appears.
All you need to do is go to the device manager
uninstall the cd/dvd drive
uninstall the ide secondary as well as primary channel and make sure you unistall the secondary channel first coz normally the primary channel is ur harddrive and if u uninstall the primary first the system will hang you will have to shut the system down forcefully
than restart the system and the system will detect everything again and issue should be resolved
if no than go to the support.dell.com ... click on drivers and downloads....select the option enter ur tag... thats the service tag which is located on the back of the system its a seven digit alpha numeric code located on the white lable with barcodes ...and than select ur os by default the operating system which will be selected would be the one you got with the system... click on cd/dvd ...download the firmware which is applicable ...
you will find the model of the drive in the device manager in the cd/dvd option and after downloading it install it and than restart the system and this should resolved it ...
if that doesnt help it means the lens of the drive are weak u will have to get a new one
so if the system is under warrantty get a replacement from dell
technical number is 18006249896
