Question about Dell Optiplex GX270SFF (5U825) Burner

1 Answer

Dell replaced my original dvd drive (Phillips 8631) with a Phillips 8801. It worked for awhile, but after reloading the operating system the dvd decoder software is gone. Can someone help me find the DVD decoder software for the Phillips DVD + RW DVD8801? Thanks

    When you say decoder software, do you mean software that let you play DVD movies and such or is this a specific application or program used for other tasks?

XPS-410 needs to have MCE 2005 Rollup two SP3 replaced by Windows 7 64 bit. Too many problems to list currently but will work limited programs

Not sure what you are trying to do. If you are trying to convert 32 bit to 64 bit Apps, try going to manufacturers website to look for drivers.
Win 7 will actually find the best drivers for your devices.

A disk error has occured press ctrl+alt+del to restart --continuous loop---

The windows files are corrupted or the hard drive is defective. If you have the original recovery disc try reloading the operational system, if this fails the hard drive is probably bad and will need to be replaced. But! as a last resort, pull the hardware out and re-seat it back in "it just might work"

You probably need to reload the operating system or maybe your hard drive is beginng to fail. Try and install the original operating system and see it this cures the problem.

I want to replace my hard drive in a dell dimensions 4300 pc. The original operating system was Win ME (Dell OEM) with an upgrade to XP Home (Dell OEM). How do I reload the operating system?

If you have the oprating system disk with you thats the most convenient way to install the OS. Else the only option left for you is to contact dell and then order a new OEM disk which costs only $10 - 11 which is very less as compared to the price of a new OS
