shut down the computer completely and disconnect power cable connection. make sure all cables to the CDROM are connected properly. If they are , remove the cables.
Remove the CDROM, clean it from any dust or debris with air compressor inside bay area and around the connection circuits. Replace the CDROM back into tray and start up computer. If problem persists. go to , retrieve CDROM part number and get a quote for replacement CDROM drive. The one you have obviously does not work at all.

How to unlock my bios password?

Removing the CMOS battery like the one shown in the picture to the right will cause the system to loose all CMOS settings including the password. To do this locate and remove the CMOS battery on themotherboard for at least five-minutes. After this has been done put the battery back into the computer and turn it back on.
Jump the CMOS solder beads
Older computers and especially older laptops don't have jumpers or dipswitches and require the user to jump a pair of solder beads on a circuit board. The identification and location of these solder beads can vary and if not available in computer documentation is only obtainable through the computer manufacturer.
If you've identified the solder beads they can be jumped by placing a flat-head screwdriver over the two beads and leaving it on those beads while turning on the computer. Once the computer has booted turn off the computer and then remove the screwdriver.

My 1150 dell inspiron laptop wont let me pass the bios screen this is my second one that has just out of nothing password protected just decided to all of the sudden have a admin or bios password ...

Disconnect the battery, unplug it, then open it up. There should be a small round battery called the CMOS battery somewhere in there. Pull that out. Then plug your computer in and boot it up without the CMOS battery. It should say password disabled. Turn it off, disconnect it, put it back together, and you're good to go.

Registry corrupted

There is way too little information to solve this problem.
The registry does not corrupt a CDROM drive.
A CDROM drive does not corrupt a registry.
A boot setting is not a registry.

If your computer cannot find the CDROM drive during BOOT, it may be unplugged or turned off in the BOOT Settings.

Most likely, the drive is defective and needs to be replaced. The new drive will be automatically recognized during boot or you may need to turn it on in the boot settings.

Anything else will need a much more detailed question.

Unable to boot win xp cd. not detected by compaq presario 5000 series interneal cd rom LTN 403 DQ24

Drive requires cd drivers to run Boot CD.
Some versions came with floppy disk to start cdrom drives, This will also require a floppy drive.

You may also try hitting f10 to enter bios setup make sure cdrom is bootable.

CDROM Not support for 945 GCNL intel Board

Hey there shivanand, the problem you have seems to related to the bios setup. Try restarting and entering setup page when prompted (F2). Search for the boot sequence setting and enter it. Adjust your setting to have your hard drive as primary boot device. Save the changes and exit to continue setup. Hope it helps. Good Luck!

Hi, A couple of possibilities: With a known good DVD with files inserted into your Compaq CR-589, double click in your My Computer, double click in your CD/DVD. 1. If it opens and displays the content, then there is nothing wrong with your DVD but the auto start feature of your OS was disabled, enable auto start; 2. If in My Computer or in Device Manager, the DVD doesn't show up, then it can be hardware problem, IDE/power cable problem, bios did not recognize DVD device, replace if and as needed; 3. If the DVD is in My Computer but will not display the files or contents, possibly defective DVD, replace. Hope this worksa out for you. Pls post again how things turn up. Good luck and kind regards.
