A few solutions:
1. Have you tried to clean your cd/dvd lens? Probably your lens is getting weak.

- Look for DVD/CD-ROM drives and delete the subkey.
- Restart your machine.

The pc don't reconise the hdd


Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE

the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

even something as small as a faulty electrical extension or fan lead can cause you problems

computers need all of the data and electrical current to travel through every working device and to have an end to be able work properly


motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail

check all electrical power input and extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working

hope this helps you

How to reboot fro cd


To boot your computer from a CD, first restart it. When it is starting up you will see a screen with your computer's manufacturer's logo (ie. HP, Acer, Samsung, Dell, etc.) On the bottom of this screen it should say what button to press to get to the boot menu. The button is usually escape, F1 or F2. You must press this button before the screen goes away. If you don't press the button in time then restart your computer and try again. Once you get to the BIOS boot menu, you will be presented a list of digital storage devices attached to your computer like USB drives, CD's, and hard drives. Use the arrow keys on your keyboard to select a device to boot from (select your CD drive.) Then press enter to begin booting from the CD. Good luck!

Hello All, My dell latitude e5510 freezes when I try to play some videos, it may work for some time but it freezes after some time. This happens quite more times and I can only exit form the situation...


The laptop may be overheating. Check that all vents are clear and dust free. Listen for the internal fan. This should operate only occassionally. If it is operating all the time and speeds up just before the laptop freezes then something is causing the laptop to overheat. If the fan cannot be heard at any time, then the fan may be faulty.

How to reformat laptop


  • 1

    If you have the recovery cd, you can just pop-in the CD, select the reformat option and the installation process will continue automatically. Some laptop might have a special partition in the drive contains the operating system, drivers, etc. in case you want to reformat your laptop without the CD.

    If you don't have the recovery CD, you usually can request one from the manufacturer. Otherwise, if you want to do a clean install, make sure you download all the drivers for your laptop, this may includes: motherboard, chipset, graphic card, sound card, modem, network card. Once you do that, put in the OS CD and start installing.

    If you decided to do a clean install without the recovery CD, it would be best to create partition on your harddrive first, so you can have dedicated partition for operating system and backup. The next time you want to reformat your harddrive, you can just reformat that particular partition ex. C:\

    My cd drive does not reconise any cd/dvd, cant install new software. I have a Fujitsu Amilo laptop.


    Does the drive show up at all under "My computer" (in Win XP) or "Computer" (in Win Vista or 7)? If not then try this "fix it" article from Microsoft. LINK

    If the drive shows up, but it won't read any type of disc, then the most likely cause is that the laser has died in the drive, and the drive would need to be replaced. This is fairly rare in newer optical drives, but was rather common in drives produced more than 6 to 8 years ago.
