Replace the non functioning internal optical drive, it's easy and cheap, then use it.

Try booting from your Optical Drive. First insert your Windows XP Pro CD into the drive. Do not re-install the operqating system or you will lose all your files and programs! When prompted press 'R' to use the Recovery Console. You should be able to write a new boot sector to your hard drive.

If this doesn't solve the problem, you might need to re-install the operating system. If you can find a way to save all your files from your drive (perhaps by putting your drive in an external USB caddy and viewing its contents on a different computer).

If all else fails get a new hard drive and start again with your WIndows XP Pro CD. Use an external 2.5" USB caddy afterwards to get your documents and files back off your old disk. You will need to re-install your programs, though. If your disk is Service Pack 3 you should be able to get straight back on the internet via a wireless connection to update all your drivers from hp's website.

I have sony vaio laptop whice model is vgn fw 140e. i try to install win xp but i can't install it. can u solve my problem please.


hello, you have to check your BIOS setting if the HARD DRIVE is not above the CD OR DVD ROM, if it is then you must change the settings and allow the CD OR DVD ROM to be above the hard drive,then insert your window xp formatting CD.this time you should be able to install window xp.

1. To access boot options on this netbook press 0 on startup. This gives options to start from usb drive or external cd.
2. If you have an external cdrom, then use this with any xp home cd to attempt repair/ repair installation/ re-installation.
3. unetbootin allows you to create a bootable usb from a cd image (or you could use it to make yourself a linux netbook).

You are going to need an external CD-Rom to fix that problem, there is no way around it. Some people have used their original os CD from asus to make a Thumb drive solution that emulates a CD, but you first need a CD to do this. Try shopping at Geeks.com for the external drive, or try using a spare cd or dvd rom with their external cable kit.

I use a cable like this for my external CD or Hard drive hookups.

I cant get the dell vista os reestore disk to boot up


Use external USB CD/DVD Drive to run your Windows Vista Operating System to Restore Disk.
Maybe your Built-in CD/DVD cannot read or access your OS.

If you don't have this device, you try another Windows Vista OS Disc.
Good luck!

Don't stay on


You might have a bad optical drive. One way to test this is to get an external usb drive, enter setup (bios) upon start up, and change the first boot device to usb device\exteranal drive, then use the exteranal drive. If it works, then you know you have a bad drive.

DVD drive cannot recognize DVD disk, but can read other CDs


I'm assuming you have tried a different dvd also and no joy, but it may need a lens clean or it is unable to read dvd anymore as the tracks are closer together than a cd and the alignment of the laser is faulty. Notebook roms are replaceable but only mainly from your notebook manufacturer. You could also use an external dvd writer via usb, although this then doesn't make your notebook as portable, if you need to read a dvd disc.
