You can try to uninstall the device in the device manager.

Start>control panel>system>hardware tab>device manager

Right click on the cd-rom drive and go into properties. in there you can uninstall the drive. Then reboot and enable the device then try to re-install the drivers.

Or you can try something else like this

How to reset my dell inspiron 2020 to factorry settings


1 - You should make a backup hard disk file.
2 - You must have the installation CD Operating System (1 CD or DVD Original) and controloradores (1 original CD or DVD or the downloads page of the DELL), those who brought when you bought it.
3 - You install the operating system (this erases all data from the hard drive), then install the drivers.
4 - You must install a Antivuris and then install Office programs you need. These all purchases or downloads from the internet(trial 30 day) o free.
5 - copy the backed up files to disk.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 stuck in windows boot manager file \windows\system32\config\system status: 0xc000014c info: windows failed to load because the system registry file is missing or corrupt ...


Here's part of an article on how to replace that registry file:

Look in the C:\windows\system32\config\regback\ folder.
There should be copies of the registry files stored inside that folder.
They are backed up periodically and stored in that folder.

If you create a MiniWin, BartPE, or a Linux Live CD, you can start the computer from CD and move the file system to the required folder, C:\windows\system32\config\.

Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA
the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO THE HARD DRIVE make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty if its a flat 40pin ide this will be the first to fail Make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd and floppy (If Applicable) have secure connections and are not faulty.
Restart your computer During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the Delete or the F2 key but will differ depending on your computer and Bios. Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS then using the arrow keys navigate to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd press escape then press f10 to save to cmos restart this will erase you operating system you will have to have an operating system disk to load it onto you hard drive or create a partition to load another operating system. Note: After you have loaded the operating system you should go back and change the first boot device to failsafe or optimised defaults after windows has loaded If you are putting windows XP on your computer your computer will automatically restart it might restart 2 times one to finish the installation the next will be because the operating system is loaded and will boot from your cd\dvd. Hope this helps.

You probably have to try to browse to tell windows where the driver is found. Windows is notoriously annoying at this. Try browsing, or telling it you know where the file is, and then comb through the folders and try to find one the looks right. Once you find the right file or folder, the OK button will "ungray" and you can click it to advance. It won't let you tell it an incorrect driver so feel free to try some that sound right, the wrong one won't install.

Cd-rom will not work


Hello Mike,

My name is ArmyMason. IF you are getting driver requests for you CD-ROM, its because the CD_ROM Drive is broken. I would suggest taking the CD-ROM out and replacing it with a different one to verify my solution. See CD-ROMs should ask for drivers, they should automatically be detected by the Operating System, Driver request for such devices are a normal sign that the device is broken.

Thanks,
ArmyMason
