Before the BIOS can detect any piece of hardware the drivers must be loaded. The best place to get the most current drivers is the manufacturers website. If you received CD ROMs with your purchase there should be a driver disc there also. You could load that one first just get it started then go to the manuf website.
Another thing you can check is Device Manager. Device Manager will show all of your hardware. Find your CD ROM device in Device Manager, right click on it and update drivers. This should take are of your problems.

My laptop crashed and we installed a new hard drive, as HP said, but we received a message that it did not recognize operating system. So we ordered recovery disks and put those in turned it on, still no...


ok, First you should understand the new hard drive is empty, it is not even formatted. At this point the most likely issue is the bios not recognizing the Hard Drive because the Bios is not set to automatically detect the hard drive. Enter the Bios and go to the hard Drive selection sub menu and have the computer automatically detect the hard drive size and type. Then go to the boot sequence menu and alter the boot order to CDROM, Floppy (If you have one), Hard Drive, Network. Reboot the computer and you should see the RAM test, hard Drive Identification and then the CDROM should start to boot. I can't be more specific about the steps because your post didn't include the model of the laptop. All of this assumes your CDROM is still in working order since HP laptops have a known issue with CDROM's going out for no reason. The hard way for dealing with this would be to get an encloser to put a hard drive in to make it portable and connect to another computer and do the partitioning and formatting of that new drive on the other computer and solve the problem that way.

My cdrom went bad....replaced with another one just like it and it will not detect it. The light on Cdrom comes on and I can open and close it,, but my pc will not detect it. Thanks for your help.


Hi:
1. make sure your new CDRom jumpers are set up correctly, if the new CDRom is EXACTLY the same like the old one (speed, mfg, model, etc) then make sure the jumbers are set the same way. if it is different then see what the old one is set for (master, slave, cableselect) and set the new one with the same setting.
2. make sure the cable is connected proberly and is in good condetion, if broken then replace
3. enter the bios setup to see if the CDRom is detected. (let me know if you can't do that)
4. there maybe a problem with your main board, try using another connection, maybe share the same cable for the HDD

Booting problem


check your Bios settings. press del or F2 or F12 as your machine boots depending on which brand you are having. Go to bios and check whether HDD and CDrom are detected. Also check your jumper settings..

Pc will not boot, it can not see hard drive. tried new hard drive but no good. The hard drive works in other computer. the hard drive can not be detected in BIOS.


Try switching the eide ribbons from the CDrom to the hard drive. Sometimes, the computer tries to read the cdrom as the primary and the hard drive as the slave. I generally just leave the CDrom out, place the hard drive in with ribbon and let it register in bios.

No matter what i do cd rom not detecting


check whether the powe plug has been inserted properly and the power plug is working fine. Even though if the power plug inserted is working fine and CD ROM not detecting means CD ROM was damaged.

CdRom drive not showing up on computer. CdRom works when push button but nothing comes up nor shows up in MY COMPUTER.


Check if the CD ROM is being detected in BIOS setup or not? In case it is not detected in BIOS, then make sure that all the cables that connect the ROM to the mainboard are okay. They should not be loose or broken. You may also try replacing the cables.

In case BIOS detects it but windows is unable to detect it, check in Device Manager to see for any disabled or unknown devices. To enter device manager, click on Start >> select RUN and type "devmgmt.msc" without the quotes and press Ok. Enable back the device from there and then check.

Boot sequence problem


try booting to DOS screen only by inserting a boot-able floppy disc (I use Win ME disc at this point although my system is also Win XP). Then select "boot with CD-ROM driver". It will detect your CDROM drive and assign a letter. Now insert the CD and boot from there. I have done this sequence many times with no problems.
