My dvd/cd-rom is not able to play a dvd or cd of anytype

Restart your PC and go into your BIOS and disable the CD/DVD-R, this way it doesn't detect your CD/DVD-R it when you boot to Windows. Once you're in Windows, do a re-start again and go back into your BIOS and enable the CD/DVD-R.

I am trying to add software to my computer and for some reason its not reading the disk (the disk is new). Install wizard does not come up either.

Click your start button then click my computer then on my computer you will see the icon for your DVD/CD ROM drive right click on it then click explore. Then the files inside your CD/DVD ROM will show on the screen then on application menu click view then details. It shows the details of the contains of your CD then click the application for the software you wish to install. It is an .exe files. You can now install the software. Or you can also right click on your CD/DVD rom then click properties then click autoplay.

When i choose somewhere:

Hi there, This issue may occur if you accidentaly replaced the Msvcrt.dll file with a third-party version that does not contain the _resetstkoflw (recovery from stack overflow) function. inorder to resolved this issue please follow step by step procedure below.
  1. Insert your Windows XP CD-ROM into the computer's CD-ROM drive or DVD-ROM drive, and then restart your computer from the CD-ROM.

    NOTE: Some computers may require that you modify the basic input/output system (BIOS) settings before you can start the computer from a CD-ROM. For information about how to modify BIOS, see your computer documentation.
  2. At the Welcome to Setup screen, press R to start the Recovery Console.
  3. Press the number key that corresponds to the installation that you want to repair, and then press ENTER.
  4. Type the Administrator password, and then press ENTER.
  5. With the Windows XP CD-ROM still in the CD-ROM drive or DVD-ROM drive, type the following commands, pressing ENTER after each command:
    • cd system32
    • ren msvcrt.dll msvcrt.old
    • CD-ROM_or_DVD-ROM_Drive_Letter:
    • cd \i386
    • expand msvcrt.dl_ BootDriveLetter:\windows\system32
    • exit
    NOTE: BootDriveLetter refers to the drive letter of the boot drive. In other words, it refers to the drive where the Windows folder is located, which is probably drive C. CD-ROM_or_DVD-ROM_Drive_Letter refers to the drive letter of the CD-ROM or the drive letter of the DVD-ROM drive. The CD-ROM drive or the DVD-ROM drive are frequently located in drive D.
Hope this resolved the issue. Thanks!

I cannot download a family CD on my computer. there is no tool bar with file etc

Unlike a camera memory card, a regular data CD may not auto open/load into your computer. You need to insert the CD into the CD drive while the computer is running,. It should automatically open Windows Explorer and show the contents of your computer. The CD drive will be an item listed. double click on the drive (probably D:) to show it's contents. Then copy any files from the cd to your documents or photos folder.

The CD-ROM (Drive:G)

First check it is detected in bios,if not check the power and data cables to the cd rom from motherboard.If its ok,this is a driver problem.I Think the vendor has given you  a cdrom nero.First boot from a windows 98 cdrom,after that put the nero cd .You can find one folder "driver" or "cdrom",change into the directory and install.Reboot your system it will be okay.

Problem in reinstallins operating system

This can be started by changing the boot order of your system.
To do so, start up the laptop from a shutdown stance.
This part requires some speed, it will either require the "F2", or "F10" in most cases. IIts not 100% guarantee that this will be the two buttons required for activation of your bios.
When you enter the bios, try to find the boot settings. And make sure your cd-rom is selected as the primary boot device.
After you change the cd-rom as the primary device, Save and Exit from the bios and your computer will automatically restart.
Make sure the O.S. (Operating System) CD is in the CD-ROM and it should automatically boot from the cd-rom, it may come up with options, your options should await you when or if the auto boot from cd works.
Hope this helps.

You need to use floppy disks (called boot disks) to boot DOS with cd-rom drivers, because the win98 cd isn't bootable by default.

I suggest you to go to and grab the respective windows 98 boot disk.

You will need a functional computer to write the disk image into the floppy.

After that put the boot order in BIOS as floppy first.

Once you see DOS prompt A:\> just access your cd-rom drive like d: or e: and then type install
