The optical reader has more than likely went bad and so you will need to replace the drive. That of course is the easiest solution, but there are some work arounds

My toshiba a215-s4807 satellite, with windows vista won't boot with my mat uj-851s cdrom drive hooked up. I had the same problem with my older version, the mat uj-850s but just figured it was brok

You can change the boot up order of devices in the BIOS. Go into the BIOS setup then to Boot up order and move the CD/DVD dirve as the first boot device and the hard drive as the 2nd boot device.
Then you boot up with a disc in the CD/DVD drive.

Pop back into the bios and make sure the boot order is correct (cd first), and make sure that you exit and SAVE.
Look out for the press any key to boot fron cd.
If no luck, can you try the disc in another computer to see if it is bootable

It is basically frozen up with virus's. How do I just wipe out everything and start from scratch?

You can use the OS installation disc or recovery disc if your computer has one. Insert the disc and re-boot the computer. It should ask you to boot from cd-rom and to press any key. If it does not then you will need to go into the BIOS of the computer and change the boot sequence to cd-rom first. Then when you get the disc to boot do a new installation. This will erase the drive and install the operating system fresh. You will then need to install all of the drivers for the laptop and software. If you have a recovery disc then it should bring it back to the factory state and will have the drivers and software on the disc also. Remember to back-up any pictures or files you do not want to lose if you can. Let me know if you have questions or problems.

Cannot reload system software without blue screen

I use a panasonic UJ-870 DVD drive and it works. You don't necessarily need a proprietary drive. Otherwise try (if you can) switching the drive off then quickly on just before the Q1 restarts at reboot.

How do I reinitialize my Dell Inspiron 2650?

You should have a CD that says something like OEM CD. Or OPERATING SYSTEM. Put that disc in and reboot your PC. You should see a prompt to press any key to boot from CD. Press enter and follow the prompts to reinstall your operating system... If you don't have that CD you'll need to purchase one from the store or look at installing a free Operating System like Linux. Option 3 (less likely) You have a recovery partition installed and you should see a prompt during boot up that says "press F10 to start recovery" in this case all of the information on that CD is store in that partition on your HD.

Four Beeps on startup on a Panasonic uj-810b

sounds like it's trying to boot to the dead drive- pay attention to the screen when you power on F12 or F1 whatever get's you to boot menu- change the order to exclude the broken drive- it should stop beeping.
