If your machine should have the XP key on a tag on it. If you no longer have the tag, the restore CD that came with the machine often (but not always) will re-install without a key. On the other hand, if you have a working installation and need to recover your current key, you can get a FREE utility to do that from:

Cd rom on windows XP wont work?

how old is the computer cd rom might be time for new one

Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll down cd-dvd rom drives you might see a yellow question /exclamation mark ? ! or a red X right click to update driver

you might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd/dvd restart your computer then plug them back this should activate the found new hardware wizard

if this does not fix the problem it might be a registry problem if you cant see your disk drive in windows explorer

Close all open programs

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.

Upper Filters

Lower Filters

Upper Filters.bak

Lower Filters.bak

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.

It could be a problem with the lens you could use a liquid type lens cleaner place 2-3 drops on top of a cd/dvd then run it if this fails you might try cleaning the lens it's already gone bad there is no harm in trying If you take a little risk can solve . follow the instruction: Don't panic its very simply. 1. When running your pc , open the drawer.> 2. switch off the ac power 3. remove power cable & sata or pata cable 4. remove all the screw from the back side 5. press clip to open the font panel 6. reverse the cd/dvd rw 7. just remove the cover 8. clean the optical lance 9. use a little( not much )oil place on two steel shaft 10.cover all the equipment you can fit to your pc Ifit does the same problem please change the cd/dvd rw because the lance has defected

hope this helps

Hi lionking2022!

Since this is a USB CD_ROM, you need change some settings in the bios for it to be detected and the system will actually boot from it.

1. You enter your BIOS

2. Look for the tab that will contain IDE settings

3. Change it to AHCI

4. Save and Exit

You may know try to boot from cd-rom and install your windows xp.

After the setup or installation is finished don't forget to changed it back to SATA or whatever the setting was.

Hope this will help.

Thank you for using Fixya,

The key is a Microsoft Windows key.

The key cannot be provided here, as this will be a law infringement.

Microsoft keys are not bound to the installation CD, but to the licence stickers placed on top of the computer cabinet, or on the laptop.

Check if you have a licence sticker on your computer.

Usually generic windows keys for same version also work on customized install disk like this. If the system is for example XP Home Service Pack 2, and you have purchased a generic version of the same system, then you can use the key on your FS CD setup.
Generally there is no way to retrieve legally a lost Windows key. You can try calling Fujitsu Siemens, but I am afraid they will tell you the same.

From here you can get Fujitsu Siemens contact in your area: Product support, software evaluation, drivers, patches and other
