I have compaq 738 tu laptop. ''my computer'' is not showing cd-dvd drive in my laptop. how can i resolve my problem?

If you have formatted your laptop without backup then it will not show CD-DVD drive

1) Please update the drivers.
2) Please get the data cable checked, it can also be the problem, in most of the cases data cable melts and disconnects the CD-DVD drive from the system.

Reset bios

There's no need to reset your BIOS, only you do is to set in your BIOS Setup to boot priority like for example First Boot Priority is your CD/DVD Rom Drive, if you got some Bootable System Disc then the Second Boot Priority is your Hard Disk Drive. Good luck!

Missing boot manager

go to system bios (using F10 key on the start "Commanly") then press F9 for restore defaults, and insert the Bootable Vista DVD into the drive, it will solve your prob.. otherwise in bios mode make sure that all the drives (HDD & CD/DVD Rom) are properly installed.
good luck

Install new os on motion le 1600

You can use an external USB drive, either CD or DVD dependent on your OS media.

I used a Phillips drive, with external power supply, to restore to factory settings using their restore CDs. I also installed Windows Vista Ultimate from DVD, without issues :)

Boot up problem

NOTE: Ususally when computers DO NOT find any startup information on the SELECTED DRIVE (like when you click a key) it goes to the default drive.
Meaning it is probably your Harddrive is broken, or your connection from hard drive to motherboard is broken

Burn a Live CD bootdisk of some linux distribution
liek Slax, google it.
Burn it to a bootable CD and put it into your drive, then select to boot from it.
If it boots only using your CD ROM drive, if that works then its probably not your BIOS/rest of computer, which is good.

And while in the live cd, you can see your harddrive and see files, that means its not broken its just your connection to it....either way im guessing youll have to send it in.

Bootable cd / dvd

one possible way around is to copy the entire cd (make a new folder named "CD COPY" or similar) to your hard drive (assuming you have enough space...about 800 Mb), then run the install from setup.exe from the hard drive, then delete the copy (to make room) when you are done.
