I force removd keyboard witht shutting down the PC n the laptop shutdown. Since then screen only shows a milli-seconds deem light. DVD rom light blinking. Fan not turning, only a blinkin green light.


This is a very common problem with windows laptops. This may or may not help but here goes. unplug power. then unplug battery from laptop. Now plug only power cord into laptop. Now turn on and start tapping the F2 fuction key. Once it goes into bios make sure that your boot order is cdrom first. Then save it and reboot with the bootable cd in the drive.

Also if now of this works unplugged Hard drive and see if it will boot up at all and into the bios setting. If you are not able to boot into the cmos make sure also that no cd is in the cdrom drive.

Take your time. Good Luck.

Changed hardrive now says no bootable device insert boot disk. dont have boot disk


Turn on the PC.

Supply the CD-ROM / DVD holding your preferred operating system - Windows, Linux, etc., into the CD / DVD tray and close the tray.

Wait up to 30 seconds for the CD / DVD drive to stop spinning

Turn the PC off.

Wait 15 seconds.

Turn the PC on.

Let the PC boot from the CD-ROM automatically / instruct the PC to boot from the disk in the CD / DVD drive.

Supply information as prompted.


If you do not have a CDROM/DVD, you will need to contact the PC manufacturer to obtain a start up disc & driver disk as needed. Explain to the support person that the old drive failed and a new one has been installed. No disk images were retrievable from the old hard drive. This should tell the person that you need everything to get this machine working as factory fresh once again.

You could purchase / download a different Operating System too - but this will likely cost much more than obtaining disks from the PC manufacturer.

Good luck!

Remove cdrom drive


Removing the cd rom drive will not make your computer start up. Or are you saying the cd rom drive will not start up? CD rom drives are very sensitive on the disks they read. Most of them have a problem reading some of the discs that someone created on another computer. Make sure you're trying to read store bought discs.
Removing the cdrom drive is very simple. Turn the laptop over and you will normally see a screw with the icon of a circular cd on it. remove that screw then you can grab the cd rom unit by the door and pull it outl

I fell down my notebook and now i need boot disk. what should i do ?


I suggest you try doing a system recovery..

To start the systemrecovery:
  1. Restart the computer.
  2. When the Computer logo appears on the screen, press the Alt and F10 keys repeatedly.
  3. If you are prompted with a Microsoft Windows boot screen, press the Enter key.
  4. After the system recovery application has loaded, follow the prompts to reinstall the Operating System.
If the ability to reinstall from the previous method is not available orfails, recovery of the Operating System will need to be from Recovery Media. Ifyou do not have a set of Recovery Media, you may purchase the set onlinefrom the manufacturer. Note: If your computer does not havean internal optical disc drive, an external optical disc drive will be requiredin order to recover the Operating System using Recovery Media.
  1. Restart the computer.
  2. When the computer logo appears on the screen, press the F12 key repeatedly to enter the computer's Boot Menu.
  3. Press the CD-ROM drive eject button and insert the disc labeled System CD.
  4. Close the CD-ROM tray.
  5. Refer to on screen instructions to select either CDROM or USB CDROM.
  6. The computer will boot from the Recovery Media
  7. When prompted for the Recovery CD, remove the System CD and insert the Recovery CD.
Note: Ifthere are multiple Recovery CDs, please insert the first of the Recovery CDs.
  1. After the system recovery application has loaded, follow the prompts to reinstall the Operating System.

You could have a problem with the cdrom drive, thus the whine. Since it can't read the cdrom drive it goes then to read the hard drive (thus going around in circles).

If you have access to another computer, put the cd recovery drives on a flash drive, have the computer boot to the flash drive (if bios capable). The flash drive will recover your computer the same way your cd's did.

Let me know if this helped.

Dell l400 problem


1.If you purchase an external USB CD drive you will not need to use your floppy discs for booting. 2. You can connect a USB CD drive to your system. 3. Your system will recognize any device plugged into your USB drive. 4. There is no CD drive available for internal installation in your computer. 5. With the USB CD drive plugged in and the windows installation disc inserted, your computer should take you through the setup program automatically.

CD-ROM Not responding


you can get the disc out by inserting a pin in the small hole on the cd draw, but when this happens it means the laser is failing to read the disc and the cdrom is failing, unfortunately the cdrom cannot be changed in the acer notebooks.

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.
