Sounds like you got a bad drive. This happens just contact the manufacturer and let them know what the problem is.Most of the time this can be resolved pretty easily.

I'm running my laptop on win XP and I've got a problem with my CD/DVD-ROM somehow my system doesn't recognize it there for I can't use it, but I really want to upgrade my OS to Vista as originally my...

Here is what I suggest. I would go ahead and upgrade your OS. Windows Vista actually has worse performance than Windows 7/8/10. I recommend installing via USB flash drive.

If you really can't get your hands on an upgraded OS. Here is a link that might help you to resolve your problem: No CD Rom drive in Device Manager No error reported by XP Windows XP

Otherwise I think it might be a driver issue. If you could supply the product serial I could point you to some proper drivers.

I am trying to install windows service pack 1. I keep getting an error code: 0x00F0826. Can you tell me what this means and how to fix it? I am running windows vista basic. 32-bit. Thanks.

if there error appeared while windows copying files then disc OS or the DVD ROM might be faulty. Try to test first the ODD if it is faulty. Use the drivers and utilities cd from dell to test the DVD ROM. If DVD ROM reads fine the drivers disc then try the OS disc to a different computer if it can load vista files. if not the OS disc has the problem. If no issues with OS disc and DVD Rom then it might be the HDD.

I got a new desktop Dell (runs on Vista) to replace my old Dell laptop (runs on Windows XP). I inserted the software CD for my HP Office Jet K80 All in One printer and it literally exploded loudly inside...

Vista has identified your printer. It loads up its default printer driver (stored in vista OS) in your new computer. This usually have the basic features only. You need to run again the CD to install or enable the added features of your said printer. If you have lost the CD you can do an alternate option by downloading the software on this link.

For the the CD that was crumbled inside your cd-rom. You can try to pull out the CD from the Tower casing and try yo maually open the CD rom unit itself. Or may i suggest that you can buy a new one. (CD/DVD roms are cheaper now a days)

The causes of CD crashing inside your CD rom;

1. wrong placement of CD/DVD disc
2. Hardware failure of the CD/DVD roms

Canon MP500 all in one printer is not compatible with Windows Vista. Is there a solution for this problem, or do I need to buy a different printer?

My Canon PIXMA MP500, purchased in mid-2006, came with the (then) ScanSoft OmniPage SE2 software on a CD. The PC had WinXP Installed. I had no use for the ScanSoft it so I made no effort to install it.
Fast Forward:
Two PC crashes later, July 2009. Using Win Vista Home Premium
LOST, important WinWord document file, only a hard copy available.
I tried to recover, scanning the "Xerox" copy. The SE Version of OmniPage was very complicated but I succeeded in producing a replacement *.doc file.

It appears that newer editions of WinVista contain the right printer drivers for this Canon Model.

Get windows vista home premium

You can run a 32 bit technology OS on a 64 bit technology platform.

It will run pretty fast.

You just can't run a 64 bit technology OS on a 32 bit technology platform, though the 64 bit OS is recommended on a 64 bit platform.

Can u help 2 format the laptop

Before you do begin to format you laptop, backup first all the data files in your laptop. Second, provide the Operating System  you want to install in your laptop. Either Windows Vista or Windows XP. Both windows you can partition the HDD their before install begin. Make sure to set the first boot device to CD/DVR ROM in CMOS setup so it will boot the OS CD/DVD you inserted in the ROM. Good luck!
