Question about Dell Dimension 5100 (D51L1) PC Desktop
When I boot up my computer, running Windows XP I get a message "drive 1 not found." I can hit F1 to get into windows, or F2 for setup. Neither of my drives, CD or DVD, are recognized.
When you boot go to your bios (probably f12) go to drives under there and see if your drive is present! if you have not changed any phiscal parameter on your computer it should be if it is not you may want to check the phisical cables in the computer to make sure they are attached and if so boot the computer with your hand on the drive do you feel it spinning up? is there a secondary drive present that has been added since the problem started? if so check the jumper settings on both (the drives should have a little picture that shows what for what) your main drive is primary and your second drive is secondary unless there older drives it may be labeled slave... let me know if it helped

Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders
This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.
If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete
After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer
Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.
hope this helps
