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.

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

We brought a used ibook 3g and it will not play the dvd's and the videos on youtube keep freezing and won't hardly play. What can we do to fix this problem?


Does it have a DVD Rom drive? check the "About this mac" section and look under ide drives. you should see something that reads DVD-ROM. If not then it won't play movies. As for youtube, its at the most a 466 Mhz laptop, if you're watching it over wireless its only 802.11.b so you're running out of machine, you need a faster one.

Dvd writing failing.


Your machine has more than enough specs to to the job

DVD's speeds are preset by the dvd itself under normal circumstances so trying to change speed may well cause it to fail.

If your dvd says 16x then the burning program will sense that and adjust accordingly.
If you try to burn faster the speed listed on your dvd then it is almost certain to fail.

Nero has tools that help to set it up for the drive that it is going to burn with nero speed and the info tool that usually ships with nero will run diagnostics on the drive and save these setting to use with the burning side of the programs.

I would suggest you re-set anything you might have changed in nero then run the tools and try again.

If you still have any issues post any further information back to this post so that we can assist you easier.

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

Hard reset


If you put a disk in and all it does is click several times, it's more than likely the spindle motor. It's best just to replace the DVD drive. Recording in the default high speed mode tends to cause the spindle motor to fail over time. Usually in a very short period of time. It's best to set your record speed to the standard mode to avoid premature failure of the spindle motor.
