The RECOVERY CD's are specifically for each and every computer and has the WINDOWS license number etc embedded in it and the hard drive and motherboard serial number as well. You can get it back to factory standard by using any original windows CD and using your Wiondows Key number on the sticker on your computer. Then you can afterwards download the hardware drivers, and all the software that originally came with the laptop, from the internet by going the the DELL.COM website and identifying your specific machine by typing in your computer's serial number. It would then (normally does) take you to a page wher you will find all the drivers and sofware needed.

Dell Inspiron 1420 is not able to read empty cds or DVDS. My I go to properties it shows empty space as 0. When I try to burn a Cd it says " Insert a blank CD"


Stephen buddy, we need to talk. I do NOT understand anything you are trying to describe. Okay, so you installed a FRESH Operating System and now it is NOT recognizing your DVD-rom, right? Okay, restart the computer and let Windows load up fully. Check Control Panel and check your list of Devices. Sometimes, when you re-install and O.S., you may have to update the firmware or drivers for certain devices.

I have the hp inspiron 531s.Can i burn cd or dvd??


Yes your computer has a DVD writer... It should have the software to burn DVDs and CDs


The Dell Inspiron 531 is a desktop personal computer with a Microsoft Windows operating system. An Inspiron equipped with a CD burner can be used to record audio discs using Windows Media Player, which comes installed on the Inspiron as a standard part of the software package Dell loads onto its computers. Blank, recordable discs and pre-recorded audio CDs are the only supplies needed for the project.

When i connect plug 2 surf whiz USB modem to my inspiron 1420 laptop ,it want device driver..what device driver i download & instal???


Your USB modem possibly came with a cd with the driver and other utilities on it.

When your system asks for the driver:

1. insert the cd
2. point the program to the D:\ drive (assuming that your optical disc is at D:\)

if the USB modem did not come with a CD, then you will have to go to the USB modem manufacturer's web site and download the driver for that model.

Formatting dell laptop 1420


Hi, Most dells sold in the last 4 to 5 years are sold with a recovery partition on the hard drive. what this means is you should not need any disc`s to do a recovery, unless you have replaced the hard drive. A little trick that most people dont know is that you only need to hold down the CTRL and F11 for a few seconds. Remember you need to do it a s soon as the laptop powers up, you should be given a menu asking you if you want to do a repair or full recovery. if you choose full recovery the the laptop will be restored to factory settings.... hope this helps
