Hard drive and rom failure

The dvd rom failed so i brought a new one it worked but every time i restart it dosent recognise it (it was a faster speed and therefore slightly different), so i think i would have to flash the bios? but as i was about to try this the hard drive failed aswell so i now have both new parts but i cant put the OS back on to the hard drive because no dvd, any way i can get the dvd to work and then put on the OS many thanks in advance.

Dell inspiron 6000 keeps restarting,changed mother board,ram,dvd rom,still same problem? it gets to windows xp dessktop & in 3/5 min it restarts it self again nut funny thing it dosen't restart...


Sounds like you may have a corrupted/failing hard drive. If you have access to another hard drive, you can install another hard drive and install your OS and see if you still have the restarting problem.

My DVD Rom of Toshiba Satelite 1800 laptop needed to be changed because the DVD tray cable was torn. When I replaced the new DVD ROM the laptop is not detecting it and it even takes a long time to boot....


I think dear speed of proccessor and the speed of you DVD ROM is deferent that is, you proccessor is faster than your cd rom or vice-versa is also possible, I would rather suggest you to know the speed your old DVD ROM and get another of same speed like old one, or just try changing cable of your old DVD rom and use it.

Acer aspire 5536 when i turn on my laptop msg comes up say Broadcom Base Code PXE-2.1 v1.0 PXE-E61:MEDIA TEST FAILURE, CHECK CABLE PXE-M0F: EXITING BROADCOM PXE ROM. OPERATING SYSTEM NOT FOUND


It is looking for a boot device, depending on how you have your boot settings in the Bios configured, i would guess that it is looking for a network boot not being able to find another boot device.

This usually points to hard drive failure, to check this:
  1. Go into the Bios and see if the hard drive / DVD are recognised
  2. If they are, and you have the option of a recovery partition, boot from that and let the system repair itself
  3. If you do not have a recovery aprtition, or cannot access it, load the Windows DVD Rom, allow it to find an existing version of windows and repair it
  4. If it does not find an existing version of windows, you will need to do a reformat and claen install.
If when booting from the DVD Rom, you get a message "hard drive not found.." you then have 2 options: This is also true if the bios cannot detect it)
  1. Remove and reinsert the hard drive, see if it finds it again in windows
  2. If it does not, i'm afraid that the hard drive as died

Hi I posted a problem last night about my asus eee pc 1005ha... kept rebooting at windows load screen. so I brought a dvd burner to run windows disk & do repar. it would go through everything fine...


Hi.

Solving your problem is just as easy as 2 hour work. not more..

By the time you were having the restarting problems.. all you had to do was to boot from usb cd-rom using Hirenes boot cd 10.

It starts a small intergrated windows. then you would have to go to a menu to stop some un-named startup bugs that cause the restart when Explorer.exe is being executed by windows.

so now, if you have your backups safe, get instruction on the internet on how to make a bootable usb windows vista or 7 Setup. windows seven comes with many drivers for new laptops.

Boot your computer from USB flash disk, run the windows 7 setup and enjoy..

hope this information helps you because it helped me with Acer One netbook..

good luck

The CD drive of my laptop Acer Aspire 4530 is not working. I've tried four CDs/DVDs, but it doesn't recognise them. I tried restarting. Is there something that I need to check on my laptop?


Open "My Computer".
Do you see an icon for the CD-drive?
If not, then you have a hardware problem (no electrical power to the drive, or the "data" cable is not connected, or the electronics inside the CD-ROM have failed).

Take your computer to a qualified technician, and get him/her to install a brand-new CD/DVD reader/writer, to replace the "dead" one.

Acer aspire one after starting my laptop it goes to a black screen and says check cable connection..! PXE-E63: Error while initializing the NIC PXE-MOF: Exiting Intel PXE ROM. No bootable device-- insert...


The computer can't see the hard drive for one of many reasons.
1. Hard drive failure
2. Bad connection between hard drive and motherboard.
3. BIOS corrupted
4. Motherboard failure of HDD control.

Press F2 when the ACER splash screen appears and go into BIOS set up.
The first page should show the hard drive name and ID number.
This may be missing or have corrupted characters in it.
Go along to the 'save and exit' and allow a restart. This sometimes kicks it into life.
Replace the hard drive with a known good one and check to see if this is recognised in the BIOS.
Clean the contacts of the hard drive.
ACER fitted both types of hard drive to this model, either PATA (IDE) or SATA.

The hard drive you are using is either broken or corrupt. Purchase a new hard drive. Unfortunatly the data cannot be recovered.

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.
