Had to do a fresh system restore on my daughter's laptop. (Hardrive crashed). I installed using system restore discs. (10) I was going to add
the software to her printer and the cd just kept spinning. Went to my computer, the drive isn't there. In device manager, no exclamations or question marks. It says it is working properly. Troubleshooting says the drivers are up to date.
Help. school starts Monday!!!

Common problem. CD driver did not install correctly.

Go to Device Manager. Unistall the CD drive. Reboot.

The Operating System will then rescan, locate the drive, and reinstall the driver.

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!

I am receiving an error "winuxo32.rom - specific


Take your restore disc and insert the system disc into your CD or DVD ROM drive making sure that your BIOS is set to boot DVD or CD first start your computer it should pick up the system disc follow the on-screen directions where is says repair computer click that leaving the disc in the drive.
Now often times disc gets damaged because we do not take care of them, it may be a bad disc, if this is the case you will need to get another disc to replace that one or try burning an exact copy of it to another new disc I have done this and it has worked. Also your issue can be fixed completely with a lot less hassle if you re-install original software that came with your computer and be done with it.
If you cannot use the disc to do this or the error still come up I use a software program called D/Ban Hard Disc Eraser or Hirens Boot CD you can find this software free at btjunkie.org or Majorgeeks.com. I would think about a fresh install and be done with it.

My daughters computer is a dell latitude D610 notebook running Windows XP.....when powering up XP starts to load and then goes to a blank blue screen....Is there a restore disc or something i can download...


Hi. I provided you a link where to download the restore disk. Once you have downloaded the restore disk, here's the instruction on how to use the disk.

Instruction:

  • Backup all the data you want to keep on an external hard drive, flash drive, or rewritable CD. Resetting your Dell to factory defaults will erase all data currently on your computer.

  • 2

    Insert the Recovery CD into your CD-ROM.

  • 3

    Reboot your computer.

  • 4

    Watch the text in DOS carefully. When prompted to boot from your CD, do so.

  • 5

    Choose System Restore and then follow the instructions presented. Once system recovery beings, it may take a few minutes. Once it's done, your system will reboot again.

  • 6

    Remove the Recovery CD from your CD-ROM and store it carefully. Your system has been reset to the factory default.

    Gateway laptop reset


    Gateway Direct systems went "media-less" back in September 2004. In the event of a system crash users could either 1) restore their systems from the Recovery Partition OR 2) from the backup media that they were prompted to create on first power-up -- which would provide them with up to 5 blank CD-R discs depending on their system's configuration.

    On the factory load of the hard drive, the recovery partition will not contain operating system files. It only contains application and driver files.
    The first time the recovery partition is used, it prompts the user to insert their System Recovery CD/DVD to copy files from the CD to the recovery partition.
    The Drivers and Applications CD is not bootable and does not contain Operating System files.
    The System Recovery CD/DVD is bootable but does not contain any application or driver files.
    If the end-user erases the hard drive and restores the computer using the System Recovery CD/DVD and an Applications and Drivers CD, the recovery partition is not recreated.

    This means that you will need the operating system restore disc FIRST then the recovery partition will work for you

    Sound like your hard drive has crashed so bad that the notebook does not even know it is there. I would replace the hard drive and try to reinstall from external cd-rom . Make sure the external cd-rom is recognized in the bios settings Good Luck

    Cd Rom not working


    Go to device manager and delete the CD-ROM Drive and restart the system (this will get auto installed). You can also do a System Restore to a point/date when the issue was not present. (start > all programs > accessories > system tools > system restore)
