Re: dvd rom problem
As soon as a dvd writer drive only starts to play cd's, cdrw's or only reports that you have a CDRW drive when inserting a blank DVD, the writers laser is worn out or faulty and no longer recognises dvd's, and so needs replacing i'm afraid, but as you may know not all dvd drives are hot swapable and need to be replaced by a repairer.

First you need a dvd-rom Then when starting the computer press F1 or F2 or esc to get into the bios. Set the boot order to boot from the dvd-rom first then the hard-drive. Put a windows install dvd in the dvd-rom. restart the computer. Press any key once the windows install comes up choose the partition or hard drive to format. You won't be able to format from windows directly unless it is a second partition. In the old days you could format using dos. You may be able to use a utility like Hiren's Boot CD to format
You can not format your hard drive using it's on software on the same hard drive. Because your notebook does not come with a DVD rom or CD rom what you need to do is to get yourself an external DVD rom which you connect to the computer with a USB cable. Then you use the disc of the operating system that you want to use on that Notebook. When you reboot the operating system disc will be recognized and on the screen you will be asked to press any key if you want to run the disc. So you will press and follow the instructions the rest will take you to formatting the disc and loading the operating system.
1. Boot the system form CD/DVD/BD Rom 2. Windows Visa take some time till a popup windows will appear . Click on Install. 3. You will see Hard Drive Partitions. 4. Click on the partition you wish to format 5. On the lower side of the windows , click on advance .You will see more options. 6. Click on format. 7. Setup will format the selected partition
the only way i know to do that is to format the hard drive. formatting the hard drive erases everything from the computer and reinstalls the operating system. to do this you need the disk for the operating system. put the disk into the cd/dvd ROM and then restart your computer. when the computer is starting up there will be commands that you can press at the bottom of the screen. press the button for booting from disk. this will take you through a bunch of things ask you if you want to do this. say yes to all of these and it will format your hard drive.
I hope this information was helpful, if you have any questions or comments please reply to this post and i will try to help out as much as possible

Formatting the hard drive is not a function of the BIOS. You will need to boot the machine from either the Windows CD and do a fresh setup (which will give you the option to format the hard drive) or boot from a bootable CD or floppy disk that has the format command on it. From there you execute the format command and follow the directions.
Its not a terminal problem but an issue with your CDWRITER or the application you use in performing CD Writing
1. Make sure you are using a Blank Empty CD
1. Try formating the Blank disks from Windows Explorer and not from the utility software
2. Check your CDWRITER settings (usually problems do not arise from here) you could set the settings default.
Are there any error messages when trying to write data on the CD?
