Question about KDS Valiant 6370iPT Notebook

Something isn't working right..

I ran f-disk on my laptop to reinstall windows and now my windows bootable disk won't read. I have it booting from the cd-rom in the bios. It will come on but then where it should be booting from the cd, it just reads the cd for a second and then stops. Anyone that can help me out it'd be appreciated.

Another way around this is to insert a boot-able floppy disc, then select "Boot with CDROM driver" and then find the new drive letter associated and then insert CDROM...and then run setup.exe

I installed a new hard drive in my dell inspiron laptop service tag #4360rf1 and it won't let me reinsstall the operating system i get a no bootable sector on harddrive error

When you boot up the laptop press F10 to bring up an list of devices to boot up from, select the CD drive.
Go into the BIOS setup and to the Boot start up and move the CD to the top as the first boot device with the hard disk as the second device.
Your laptop will now boot uo with the Windows Vista installation CD.

DVD/CD-ROM drive not working. Drivers were reinstalled and still not operational. Message received that there is a problem with the registry - how can this be fixed?

Find a "bootable" CD-R disk (Ubuntu Linux, Microsoft Windows Vista, Microsoft Windows 7) and restart your computer, and tell it to "boot" from the disk inserted into the CD/DVD disk. If it reads from the CD/DVD, then the hardware is OK. If it cannot read the disk, then it's time to replace the "broken" CD/DVD device.

Boot cd problems

You can't just put the windows cd in your cd rom drive. If your going to change your boot order (to cd), then you HAVE TO use a BOOTABLE cd. That means a bootup disk with all the correct bootable files for WINXP. Same with a floppy. Change your boot order to a floppy....and in order to bootup windows, you MUST HAVE the bootable files ON THE floppy. In your case...the cd. The windows xp does not have the bootable files since it is only used for install and reinstall.

Create a bootable CD or floppy (((from someone elses WINXP pc or laptop))). There is a feature that allows you to do that. Then when you boot to cd it will start windows and give you options.

Computer wont boot

Your hard drive has failed, and thus your laptop cannot read it. Or someone intentionally formatted your PC, and now you have to reinstall Windows.

Or someone messed with your bios settings. When your computer boots up it should say a key to press to get into bios settings, if you can't see it just look in HP's support section of their website, and it should tell you there. When you get into bios settings, make sure the hard drive is at the top of the 'boot list' so it detects the hard disk first. If it still doesn't work, then you have to try reformatting/reinstalling windows, or get a new hard drive.

Cd rom not working

Let’s determine if your CD-ROM drive or your Operating System Software ( ie...Windows XP) is the problem.
You will need a bootable CD, you can use your “Dell Resource” CD or any other bootable CD disk.
Power on the laptop and tap the F12 key to get to the “Boot Selection Menu”. Insert the DELL “Resource CD” into the CD-ROM drive. Select “Boot from CD/DVD drive” from the selection menu.
If the laptop boots from the CD drive then you Operating System Software is the problem.

If the laptop won’t boot from CD then your CD-ROM is defective and needs to be replaced.

My Toshiba DVD drive stopped reading CD's

at this point, you can revert back to the stone aged floppy drive to boot up. Try to obtain a boot-able floppy disc that will allow you to boot the pc with cd driver. You can even go back to WIN-ME edition floppy boot disc. I can send along a copy if you like.

Restoration disks

You should'nt have a problem installing as long as you format the hardrive first, as windows can only id the hardware profiles once installed, but you may not be able to do this if it's only a restore disc. This hardware recognition process can be sorted easily if required to validate windows by going on line when installed and microsoft will read the o/s product code automatically and validate.
