Try this: Open up "My Computer" and look for the CD. If you see it in there, double-click on it to open it.

In XP, My Computer is either on your desktop or inside the Start menu, on the right.

In Vista, My Computer is inside the Start menu, on the right. (Vista has known problems with the Autostart function on CDs).

My power mac G4 is not opening safemode as well as it is not boot from CD


Two possible things are wrong either your hard drive has gone or your system has corrupted. Put your instal or system disk in start it up holding down the c key. Once it has started check that the hard drive exists by go to the menu bar and selecting the disk utility. If the hard drive shows it means that it is okay run the disk utility check drive and then run the repair permissions. Then try restarting, if it works then you are back up and running again. If the drive shows up and you restart and the same thing shows up with the grey screen, you will need to reinstal your system. You do this by starting up with the instal disk holding down the c key and run the instal script. To keep your hard drive contents your will MUST use the preserve users instal.

If your hard drive does not show up the hard drive is probably a gonner and you will have to purchase a new hard drive and instal a fresh system.

Hope this helps

Hi there,
please check if you can remove and reinsert the hard drive from its's location. usually you would have to remove 3 or 4 screws on the bottom part of the laptop and slide the hard drive out. once it's out put it back in and make sure that it's tightly on its place.
If this does not work you may have to replace the hard drive because the message means that it cannot detect the hard drive and it might just have to be replaced.

You do not need a hard disk controller driver. The hard disk is configured in the BIOS automatically.
If Windows install cannot detect the hard disk then either the hard disk is faulty or the motherboard disk controller is faulty.
Re-seat the hard disk, it may not be making proper electrical connection and then go to the BIOS configuration to see if it detects the hard disk, if not then the hard could be faulty or the disk controller is faulty. In most cases it is the hard disk that is faulty.
To further test the hard disk, remove the hard disk and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter, then plug it into a working computer's USB port. If this computer does not see it as an external hard drive or you cannot open the various folders and files, then the hard disk is definitely faulty.
Then you need to replace the faulty hard drive.

I bought a external hard drive and want to backup my dvd's on it. What do I need in order to do this?


All you need is a good working DVD ROM and a 2.0 usb port.

Plug in your hard drive to the usb port.
It should install and be ready to use in a few minutes.
Insert your DVD's
Open My Computer and open your dvd disk (right click on the icon and choose open)
Open My Computer again but this time open your newly inserted hard drive (there will be an icon naming the drive)
Now, just use copy / paste from the dvd to the hard drive (you may have to create folders on the hdd to keep it organized)

Hope this helps.

I am trying to install the OS but the computer does not recognize the hard drive to begin the install.


When you get to the opening window of the software launch on the OS disc, you can find access to the Disk Utility and you can mount the drive via the Disk Utiltiy program.

You can also format it if needed.

CD Disk Drive E doesn't want to open


Right click on "My Computer" and press "Device Manager". See if your CD drive appears in there. If it does, delete it and re-boot. The PC should find the CD as a new device and re-install standard drivers for it. Hope this helps. Ian.

Compaq d540s hard disk upgrade


Jackwan -

Sounds like the boot record of the drive may be corrupt. When you runs the XP installation, you'll be given an option to start the Recovery Console. Go ahead and open that, should bring up a command prompt. At the prompt, type "fix mbr" (With the quotes removed). Select Yes or Continue when asked, and go through the repair process, then reboot the system and try installing Windows again.

*Note*
You might want to check first, make sure the jumpers on the hard drive are set to Master, or Cable Select, and make sure the drive is connected as Drive 0 on the Primary IDE channel.

Hope this helps!
