My seagate hdd is not starting, (40 gb) ata, is see it in bios but when windows isnstalation must start appears an error, I/0 eroor press any key to reboot, need help!


This is a problem related to the Windows error "I/O Device Error" means there is an error in the computer's ability to read data when you try to install a program. which could mean that the CD is corrupted or not fully readable, it has nothing to do with your hard disk. Simply use a different CD. It can also occur if the CD/DVD ROM is not able to read your windows CD, so alternatively you could copy the OS from CD onto a USB stick, change boot priority to USB stick & install your OS on your computer

My notebook suddenly shut down itself, then after i restart, it show select which drive to boot (but no option to let me select). Then i try to reformat it, but it show no harddisk install? i have try...


> 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.

Can,t boot up from cd/dvd player to format hard drive and install new operating system seems like their is a lock on the hard drive because i tried to reformat it on my other laptop and was also...


that would be in Device Manager not BIOS. there is no BIOS that i am away of that will show a ! on a drive nor lock out a CD Rom drive.

if you tried to format a computer with a disk and it didn't work in 2 different computers, it has nothing to do with the drive and all to do with the disk. Is this disc authentic pressed or is it burned?

Get a new disc and try again.

If this is an external CDROM that you are hookign up, then you need to make sure the drive is working correctly or the cable is not damaged.

CD Disk Drive E doesn't want to open


Right click on "My Computer" and press "Device Manager". See if your CD drive appears in there. If it does, delete it and re-boot. The PC should find the CD as a new device and re-install standard drivers for it. Hope this helps. Ian.

My dvd rom drive won't read any disks


The yellow exclamation point in the device manager means there is a problem with the drive. It could something as simple as installing a driver for the drive or it could be that the drive is bad. Hope this helps & please rate my answer. Thanks.

Hp laptop computer will not boot up. The power comes on and you can not hear the hard drive start spinning - no hard drive clicking either. You can hear the fan start blowing....but nothing on the lcd...


You hit the problem right on the head, NO BOOT. All computers have to have a system disk to read whether it is on a floppy or hard drive. your computer is not reading your hard drive. It either is really screwed up from the boot, or it has been formated and has nothing to read. Try installing a new copy of windows or inserting some type of bootable disk. if that works, Install your windows operating system. Insert a disk in your D drive or your CD drive letter and turn the computer off, restart the computer and the disk should boot your computer. Good Luck.
