    Are the disks burned or original copies?  Sometimes cd/dvd players will only recognize original copies of software discs.

Make sure that he has updated drivers...

Step 1:
for xp and vista:
get to control panel under settings on the start menu.

Step 2:
for XP (new look): Control Panel > Peformance and Maintainance > System
xp (classic look): Control Panel > System
click 'hardware' tab, and 'device manager'

or type : 'devmgmt.msc' into run under start menu.

Step 2:
for VISTA: Control Panel > System and Maintenance > Device Manager

or type: 'devmgmt.msc' into search box under start menu

now see if the computer recognizes the dvd/cd rom drive hardware under 'dvd/cd rom drives'

now go to the manufacturer of the computer's website here: "" (minus the quotes) and follow the instructions to get the right up to date driver.....

...i hope this helps... if not it could be an actual hardware problem

I was rebboting my computer thru f11 and cut it off by accident now when it comes on it goes to a screen that saysinsert boot disk and press any key, i do not have a boot disk

The 'C:' disk-drive either has "failed" (such that NO files can be read from it),
or the directories on the disk-drive are so "scrambled" that your copy of Windows cannot be read from the disk-drive.

Take your computer to a computer-savvy friend, or to a qualified technician.

My disk driver is not reading any disks ,but the computer is saying that it is working ,im very confused

You might have to replace your disk drive because there may be something wrong with the laser that reads the disk even Tho the computer registers the device as normal that only registering the device drivers and the connection between the device in your computer it does not register it is something wrong inside the device other then the connection this sounds are there something wrong with the laser light on the disk drive hope this helps

Operating System to some Port

go to start menu , right click on my computer and then click properties, then go to hardware , then click device manager , now a list of devices will come up, if you see anything in yellow there with the ! symbol , that means the drivers are not installed , im guessing this is your problem , you will need to find the drivers for the yellow symbol's
