Hi I'm Tony from the Philippines and I have a Compaq presario f756nr notebook pc (to be exact), i want to reformat my laptop and the problem i am facing now is that when i try to use my cd/dvd rom drive to...


Hi Tony,
Thanks for the details you have mentioned. The steps you have taken are correct and if the System/ hardware is ok, it should boot from CD Drive. Whenever i have faced such an issue, i always started afresh to check each hardware (CD, DVD, ROM, Hard Disk, Cables, Connections etc) and most of the times the issue was optical drive or CD/DVDs.

So, I recommend that make sure that the CD/DVD ROM is functioning properly. When the system is set to boot from CD/DVD, it must try to read CD/DVD after power on. It is indicated by spinning of the optical drive and blinking CD ROM LED. If there is a bootable CD in the drive, it should boot. You may try to boot the system through DOS bootable CD. Also, if you still have the OS on your system, you may check the CD ROM through windows.

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.

GoodLuck!
Dont forget to appreciate the solution if I could have been of any help!

My ACER ASPIRE 7736Z-4809 will no longer show my DVD drive and I was trying to back up data files to that drive. My Optiarc DVD RW AD 7580S gives me this message: Windows cannot start this hardware device...


Check Device manager First if the DVD-ROM is detected there, check for any question marks on the drive exclamation or a red X question mark it is detect but no drivers are installed exclamation mark means it is installed and detected but drivers are incorrect or corrupt can still be fixed 99%, red X means it is either disabled or not responding.

go to run type REGEDIT then enter,Click HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

Once you find your DVD-ROM look for upperfilters and LowerFilters on the list delete Both if it show both some time it can either be just one of the two, after deleting the filters restart your computer then try a dvd and a cd to make sure both types of disc are detected and working on the drive,

Check in device manager. To do this. 1st right click my computer, 2nd Click properties, 3rd click hardware, 4th click Device manager, 5th check that the computer is seeing the DVD/CD-ROM drives by double clicking the DVD/CD-ROM drives words or click the + symbol next to DVD/CD-ROM drives, the drop down menu will list your device if it’s there. If a device is listed double click the device. If it says it’s working properly click driver in the top bar and uninstall, then re-boot, the system will re-load the driver on re-booting. If the driver was corrupt it will re-install it correctly.
If the system cannot find the driver on re-booting it's missing from the systems file, go to the Support Fujitsu site and download and install the driver. Its free all you have to do is put the laptop details in the appropriate boxes and all the drivers for that laptop will be listed.
From your description of the error message it’s no doubt a corrupt or missing driver.
Hope this helps.

I have a toshiba satellite A laptop,it use to play DVD movies and now only plays music CD's. What can i do?


You have a software problem not a hardware issue. You will find that the register may need repairing. ( Run Mechanic program in Win xx ) or to put it simply the computer forgot it has a DVD/CD you should go into control panel revome the CD drivers in uninstall or add/remove hardware. Then reboot and let Win detect new hardware as the DVD/CD let it find the drivers over the net or if you know the infoof the DVD/CD 'select from list' to add manually. Chances are though you don't have a driver disk nor would it be able to read it because you will have disabled the malfunctioning driver so it must come from the inter net or change the boot sequence in the 'set-up' to cd rom first and put the original Win disc in the CD and reboot.

Happy movie'ing! < not a word, yet.

Good Luck. Let me know.

Change CDROM on Toshiba 2805 -s 202


IDE 1 is the CDRom (or any optical device attached). IDE 0 (zero) is the Hard drive. So this message is telling you there is a problem with the DVD/CD-Rom, that has halted the boot process. Now you have no choice but to go to BIOS (read startup screen to find the procedure, usually DEL, F2, or F12 keys) and see if the problem can be corrected there (or if not, disable the drive, save change, and try rebooting again). If this is not possible, then you might try booting from an external device (floppy, CD, USB etc) if your system allows that (and if you have the boot software/media). Otherwise, you must remove the drive, in order to regain your desktop (pass the halt stage in boot process). Here is how to remove the CD:

Underneath the laptop, there will be a screw about 4 inches in, on a centyer line direct from the DVD/CD tray panel. Remove this screw. Insert a pin or paper clip (carefully, and STRAIGHT in!) to the small hole next to the CD tray release button. This opens the tray manually. Pull it out to the full open position, then GENTLY pull further, and the whole drive will release from the laptop.

Once you have reached the desktop, you should try to remove the previous driver if possible, via start menu/settings/control panel/system (or r-click my computer and select properties). In system control panel, there is a hardware settings tab. Here you can remove or disable hardware. Try adding a "generic CD-Rom", so the DVD might get past boot process when you reinstall it (later, below).

Now, try to start the laptop without DVD/CD. If it starts normally, your driver change was incompatible, or possibly, in the process of changes you did something that impaired the drive or its ROM (or perhaps needs to be cleaned).

Now try reinstalling the CD Rom drive (no screws yet, just insert fully). If you are still at the same halt, you have cut yourself out of using this CD, unless perhaps tou can reboot with a windows CD while the drive is installed, and let windows detect and install a PROPER driver.

If that is not possible, you need another DVD/CD drive. You can also buy a replacement or cheap older model for testing system at any legitimate advanced PC shop, or many used computer parts stores. Try the drive before you buy, just slide in and mount a CD/DVD. (you may have a special adapter that must be removed from the old OEM drive and attached to new one, and the tray cover may need to be switched to allow the CD to close for testing)

Regardless of the outcome of any of the above, please post your results, and the complete text of the black boot screen here, so I can analyze the problem -or any other possibilities that may be indicated by the post dialog.
