I put the Win 7 DVD i n the DVD player and the CD player and neither will work for me. Also the DVD player will not open unless I do it manually with a paperclip in the little hole.

The drawer motor being out is just an annoyance, it has nothing to do with reading the disk; it may be used for years that way with no problem.

As for the Win 7 DVD. It will NOT work in a CD-only drive, has to be a DVD-drive for obvious reasons....it's a DVD.

Did you set the BIOS to boot from the DVD drive first ?

    when the PC begins to boot, repeatedly press the [F1] key until you see the BIOS. You only have a few seconds to do this before the normal boot processes begin, so you may need to do it a few times to be successful. Once in the BIOS you will need to locate the boot options.

Transferring Win 7 from laptop to external


You cant do that. The only thing I have seen and tried is to create an image of Windows 7 on a thumb drive, and it was not an easy task.
I suggest to get an external DVD drive, plug it into the PC and install. . . . . . . . Hey wait a minute!, I just noticed "my PC has a DVD player only". if its a DVD player and not a CD player, it will read the Windows 7 DVD, you may have to change the Boot Priority setting for the PC to boot from DVD before booting from the hard drive.

Dvd/cd writer will not recognize cd's or blank disk's will recognize dvd but not play.


Did this problem occur after a OS upgrade? Open Device Manager, DVD/CD-ROM drives, open and uninstall the DVD/CD rom. Reboot your machine, Win 7 should apply the correct driver. If you need a driver go to your manufacturer's website. Drivers and support section.

Set VM machine to boot from CD.Install on VM hard drive from within the VM machine, Type in KEY code,Bam! you now have a win xp VM!(Note: Games and stuff may not work in the VM as they do not use your video card but a virtual video card that is pretty limited!)

Hi please help me when we insert the dvd it is showing loading then after some time it is showin stop sign just showing black screen always.


Is this with any DVD you put in it?

Anyhow, I've seen similar cases having to deal with DVD and CD players. Unfortunately I believe the laser in your DVD player is or has become faulty and unable to read anything. You could try a CD/DVD cleaner.

Hope it helps.

Cant instal win xp on dell xps 700 help pls


1.) Insert Bootable CD.
2.) if not booting up, go into the Bios and change the bootable device list to list the CD or DVD drive first
3.) Disk should boot, if not then you have a problem with your CD (try another) or the CD/DVD Drive is not working properly.
