SOURCE: Used Dell Dimension 3000 drive issues

If you mean you need to install windows, you need to set your cdrom drive as first boot device in advanced bios settings or it will try to boot into a non-existent windows. Make sure your hdd is showing as the master drive, save settings and exit bios. Re-boot pc with windows disc in cd drive and hit enter when prompted to boot from cd.

SOURCE: Dell dimension E310 DVD ROM does not recognize DVD

Hi

From the driver, it looks like it is a dvd reader.

Try to delete the filters from the registry by performing the following steps.

If u have win XP, click start and then click run and then type 'regedit' and then hit ok.

If u have win Vista, click start and then type 'regedit' in t he Start Search field and then hit enter.
Once you get the registry editor screen, click on the + sign next to computer and then + next to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHIINE and then + next to CURRENTCONTROLSET and then + next to CONTROL and then + next to CLASS.

Under Class, you will find a lot of folder in sequence with numbers and letters.
This time click on the folder itself and on the right side of the screen, u will find some entries.
Pls look for either 'Upper Filters' or Lower Filters' and right click on them and delete them.
Close registry editor and restart the computer. After restart, the dvd's should get detected.

If this doesnt work, then download the original drivers or any updates from the manufacturers website,

Bios cannot read hard drive


Hi Robert,

IT could be that the Barracuda drive is formatted for boot up. I would boot up with the drive that boots, and make the Barracuda a spare drive, so you can go in and first see if has any issues as a drive,(meaning sector 0 errors, and if you can access it, then you can format it as a boot up drive, or get what data on that drive off for your friend.

Good Luck Mark

Dell E310 Dimension that won't go on!


Boot the computer into safe mode. Run full-system anti-virus scans to ensure that the system is virus free and to remove any infections that may be present. Reboot system.

Instructions for booting into safe mode:
1) Start system
2) As system is starting, press F8 key
3) Boot menu will come up asking how you want to boot - choose Safe Mode and press ENTER
4) Your computer will start with limited services, no internet connection, etc. This will allow you to check the system and scan for viruses without interference from non-essential services.

Let us know how it turns out.

Hope this helps. Please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.

I got this Dell Dimension E310 from someone else and i need the operation system cd and she don't have it.where can i find one? it won't let me play dvd's,and a friend said i need the original discs.


you should be able to pick up a disk for next to nothing on ebay.or borrow 1 from a friend. it is the code that is the most important thing. their should be a sticker on the case somewhere with the xp licence code.

New hard drive choices


Hello, Bob!

Seeing as I am a 6 year veteran of Dell Tech Support, I should be able to help you out, no problem.

One thing that I would like to let you know is this: according to Dell Support Policy, you ARE allowed to put a non-Dell-branded hard drive in your computer. However, if Dell Support deams that this non-Dell hdd has caused another Dell component to fail, they will not replace the defective product. BUT, since it is HIGHLY unlikely that a non-Dell hdd would actually cause any other failure, feel free to purchase a non-Dell hdd. (I often times suggested that customers take this route because unless you're purchasing a refurbished Dell product, you're only paying for the Dell name.)

Anywho...

There really are no limitations to what size hdd you can install in your computer. Of course, a larger hdd will take more time to process information (Basically, there's more surface area to scan when your computer is searching for a specific piece of information.). Your main thing will be determining if you have an IDE hdd or a SATA hdd.

The Dell Tech website CAN be your friend (support.dell.com). From there, you can view original configuration and even available upgrades simply by entering your service tag (Usually found toward the back of your computer, on a black sticker with white text. It should list your service tag, an alpha-numeric value, and express service code, an all-numeric value).

If I were in your position, I would most likely not go over a 160g or 200g hard drive... simply to keep decent performance.

Hope I helped!
