I put a new harddrive in a hp nc6400,changed the boot sequence for cdrom to run first,it would load the system ok,but when it restarts it saying no harddrive

One bad lead or faulty connection point can cause a computer to shutdown continue restarting on a cycle or fail to detect your hard drive boot up

test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive SATA

the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty

even something as small as faulty fan lead can cause you problems

computers need all of the data and power to travel through every working device and to have an end for a computer to be able work properly

a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive check all power and data leads make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd drives need to have current go through make sure these devices are working

check the CPU central processing unit make sure it has thermal paste and dust free secure seating

also check your computer ram modules and cmos battery make sure it has charge and they are dust free and securely seated some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in

hope it helps

This indicates that you media (CD/DVD) cannot be read/is not recognised by your notebook drive: to make sure that you have a working drive, try inserting a know good CD/DVD. If this works, then you may have a compatibilty issue either because of the media used (eg. brand especially with Rewitable device) or the format of the data on your media (is your drive capable or reading both CD and DVD). You can assess the compatibility issue by using another computer/notebook to try to read your media.
Hope it helps: let me know how you go and good luck!

Laptop won't boot. It gets to the blank screen wit the flashin cursor in the top corner and gets no further. Also there is a constant alarm sound comin from the laptop. I have no recovery or windows disks,...

If it gets as far as the cursur blink then it it getting past the BIOS menu.
I have a Toshiba laptop and if I leave a cd or DVD in the drive, it does exactly the same. When it gets to the BIOS menu option, go to the BIOS menu and choose Default Settings.
That may get it back together.
If you have no disks then it is not easy to get the system recovered.
Hope this helps.

Im havin a problem wit my acer comin on it askin

similar story trying to fix friend's 5420. She had trashed Vista and lost any&all original discs. Well, who needs vista's not one of M$'s better efforts. TRY THIS, download LinuxMint from a reliable source, burn a "live CD". put into drive, boot machine, during boot press "Alt"+"F12", select CD to boot from. See how it feels. Wait couple minutes for boot to finish then manually click on tiny icon next to network icon to load wireless driver, (don't ask...), on bottom right of screen. Learn some new stuff, toss some windows. enjoy.

Hello.. i have an acer aspire 5536 my dvd/Cd drive is not wokring , it does not let me burn things or upload things onto my computer.. my computer does not find tht DVD drive.. how can i fix this i think i...

Hello ali5867,

You can check if you have a DVD connected to your laptop by simply going to your My Computer.

If you can't see your DVD rom on there, you can go to your Device Manager to double check.

You can go to your Device Manager by clicking on the Start Menu button, then drag your mouse pointer to your My Computer icon then right click on it.

Choose Properties then click on the Hardware tab. You can find the DVD/CDROM Drives.

If it's still not there, you may need to call Aspire to see how you can go about with it.

As far as burning data to your DVD or ripping data off from it, you will need a burning software for that.

You will need to get a copy of Nero. That's what I use to burn data to my DVD or rip data from your DVD to your laptop.

Hope this helps.
