Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

More info needed

Hi there--you responded to a question I posted on this site regarding my Dell computer. Basically, the disc drive is no longer recognized by the computer at all. It's not listed anywhere and the whole D drive is not anywhere to be found.

Your suggestion was to right click on My Computer and click "eject". Where in My Computer? I've gone to My Computer and looked for that option under CD/DVD and any options like it.

Can you tell me more?

Thanks much!

    Our DVD drive no longer works. When I go to "My Computer," it is not even listed anymore. I think it was the "D" drive. Any advice on how to get it recognized and working would be greatly appreciated!

When i press control f11 to restore my computer it does'nt respond do anybody have any other option for me?


Did this computer come with a recovery disc(s) or is F11 your only option for recovery?

If you didn't get a disc then you probably have a recovery partition on your hard drive. If this is the case there is a good chance your hard drive is failing or has failed. This would also wreck your recovery partition. Your best bet would be to replace the hard drive and order a recovery disc set from Dell. They cost anywhere from $15-40 and you can order them on their site or call them.

I want to pull info off a hard drive & put onto a disc.


Hi,
If your new computer doesn't accommodate the drive then you will need a three and a half inch hard drive enclosure to put the hard dive in from the other computer.
You will have to look at the drive to work out which type enclosure you will need.
It will either be a SATA connection like this >>>>

Or a IDE/ATA connection like this >>>>

If you compare the connections on these examples you will one has plastic connections and one has brass pin connections.
As soon as you know which type of drive you have you can then proceed to purchase an enclosure.
When you have got the correct enclosure all you have to do is install the drive and connect it your new computer.
You will be able to access the drive, copy your data and use the drive as an external hard drive.

Trying to restore Dell Inspiron 1501 to factory settings.


don't hit ctrl, f11 instead hit F8 and then go into Dell Factory Image Restore, that will wipe, format and reinstall all the factory software that's stored on the Recovery Drive (usually the D: drive) good luck.
