> no option to let me select

This means that no "bootable" CD-ROM was loaded into the CD-drive, *AND* that the "bootable" files could *NOT* be read from the disk-drive.

> it show no hard-disk install

Well, it shows that either:
* no electrical power is reaching the disk-drive
* the electronics "underneath" the spinning-part of the disk-drive have failed
* the "spinning" part of the disk-drive is not spinning (dead motor?)
* the disk is spinning, but nothing can be read from the disk-drive.

Try connecting the disk-drive to another computer.
If it is detected, that's good.
If not, then your disk-drive has a BIG problem,
and replacing it (with or without exercising any "warranty'") is your only way to move forward.

Disk may be a DL DVD (double layer) whcih your drive may not be able to read.
The disk might be a BluRay which your drive may not be able to read.
Your drive may be defective or have a dirty read head.

Can the "bad" CD-R be properly read on some other computer?
If not, then the disk itself is the problem.

Otherwise, changing from Vista to XP does _NOT_ produce the type of problems that you are reporting.

Latitude C840 wont reconize optical drive in BIOS


When you get no disk error, that is usually because of a problem with the optical laser lens that is dirty, faulty or opaque, and will start operating on certain disks better than others.

In that case you will hear disk spinning, whirring and clicking, but the TOC (table of content track at start of CD/DVD will not be read, therefore the error.

Whe this problem is starting you may be able to read only CD, DVD or Blue ray, or for example only DVD-R and not +R , or only to read and not to write and so on. After more prolonged usage , often the unit goes losing the rest of functions, and ends up not reading anything at all.

If instead there is no noise, and disk does not spin at all , then there is a faulty motor, or the motor micro-switch is bad. This situation is far less common than the lens problem.

Try first using a CD/DVD or Blue ray lens cleaner disk to clean the lens. If that does not work you will need to disassemble the drive , and clean lens directly with q tips and isopropyl alcohol, or to replace the the whole drive unit.

CD/DVD Rom suddenly not reading DVDs. I had iTunes installed and had deleted these files. Any connection and how do I fix my DVD player BA


DVDs demand a much higher precision to read a disk than do CDs and when they go down the tubes, the DVD is the first place it will show up. You can try using a cleaning disk but this is often not successful.

My computer will not read any of my disk or install


when you say disk did you mean hard disk? if you do... did you recenlty install a new hard disks?... if you did... did you check the jumper-master-slave configuration when installing the new hard disk?
only one hard disk can be configured as master in each ide channel. set up to master (not single) the one on the end of the ide cable and set up to slave the one attached to the midlle of the ide cable.
check that both hard drives are properly attached to the cable and that the power cable is properly seated.

when you say disk did you mean cd rom disks or dvd disks?
does it work in other computers? if it doesnt.. you cd/dvd disks may be the problem
are you trying to read a dvd disk on a cd rom only drive... you can't read a dvd in a cd rom drive.
if you cd/dvd rom drive should read the disk you're putting in, check in device manager if your system detects the cd/dvd rom drive. if it doesn't: check the physical connections (reseat ide cable, check jumper configuration for slave and master on your cd/dvd rom drive and check that the power cable is properly seated), check also in device manager the properties of the cd/dvd rom drive and check if it says on device status if the device is working correctly. if it doesn't post the error code that it may give you or google a solution with error code.

suggestion.. be more specific when posting your questions.. that way it will be easier for a solution to be provided as your issue could be interpreted in different ways
