Hi,

Install the driver for the cdrom. For you to check if the device driver has not be installed. Click on the Start orb and right click on "Computer", click on "Properties" a window pops up. Click on "Device Manager" and Okay it. Check to see if the "DVD or CD Rom Driver" has a question mark sign or yellow triangular sign on it. This is an indication that the device driver is not installed.

Right click on it and click "Update device Driver" click on the search automatically option. Please connect to the internet during these process.

Hope this helped.

Kind Regards

Restore to the factory defaults from bios...probably the device is disabled ...also you may take a look into device manager ( my comp-prop/ .....) to see if it allows you to restore or enable ...
so ...no matter if you reinstall the OS and format the hdd...if its disabled from bios...the installing process..ignores the cd drive ...its like you have 2 Lan cards and you disabled one for to use the new one ...or something like this ...
there is some place where you can enable it ....but you will also have to reinstall the os ...or at least the driver for the cd drive ...so ...if you are not sure what Im talking about ...ask someone to take a look and restore the cd drive from bios...

My laptop crashed and we installed a new hard drive, as HP said, but we received a message that it did not recognize operating system. So we ordered recovery disks and put those in turned it on, still no...


ok, First you should understand the new hard drive is empty, it is not even formatted. At this point the most likely issue is the bios not recognizing the Hard Drive because the Bios is not set to automatically detect the hard drive. Enter the Bios and go to the hard Drive selection sub menu and have the computer automatically detect the hard drive size and type. Then go to the boot sequence menu and alter the boot order to CDROM, Floppy (If you have one), Hard Drive, Network. Reboot the computer and you should see the RAM test, hard Drive Identification and then the CDROM should start to boot. I can't be more specific about the steps because your post didn't include the model of the laptop. All of this assumes your CDROM is still in working order since HP laptops have a known issue with CDROM's going out for no reason. The hard way for dealing with this would be to get an encloser to put a hard drive in to make it portable and connect to another computer and do the partitioning and formatting of that new drive on the other computer and solve the problem that way.

Try the cdrom drive cleaner. If this will not work, replace your cdrom drive. It is already defective if it cannot read cd's or dvd's.

Dvdrw can not detect in dell astro 1400 notebook


Check your system BIOS whether it is Detected there, if no, Shutdown your system, Press your CD-Rom drive towards the system firmly (Incase its making a partial contact), and restart your system. If Yes, then Start your system, Right-Click on my computer, go to properties, Device Manager, DVD/CDRom Drives. and click on it. if your CD Rom Drive is not detected there, then on the Device Manager Screen, click on Action, Scan for hardware changes, your system should detect it automatically. But if its already there, right-click on it, Uninstall it and do the scan system for hardware changes again. It should solve the problem like that.

This might be as a result of CDROM Drive speed.
Generally the spin speed of CDROM Drives are always different, and there are some desktop CDROM drives that have Spin Speed as High as 60X...yes, because I have used one before. What in this case, I would suggest you do this, : Provided the Notebook CDROM Drive can read other disks, then just try and use your desktop to burn the CD disk onto another CD Disk, then try the newly burnt disk on your laptop.
And if you have an external drive, you can just copy the CD contents using a NERO burner software or any other CD Burning software, and transfer it to your laptop.
Hope this help you out.
Goodluck!
