Question about Dell DVD-rom DVD Drive
I have a dell inspiron 6400 and now after a year the drive is not reconizing the vista home basic os dvd which i got from dell with the system. however other dvds are being read...... HELLPPPP.. i really need to reinstall os......
It more than likely won't due to it being an OS. It's usually down to copy protection.
Best thing to do is reset the PC and go into your BIOS settings, then change the boot priorities so it boots from your DVD drive, when you save these settings restart the PC. This will make the PC read from the DVD first instead of the Hard drive for the OS, should bring up a message saying "press any key to boot from disc", then when you do press something it should start up the disc and you can reformat from there.
