Take a paper clip and straighten it out and put it in the tiny hole and push. It will open the cd drive.

My Mercury Motherboard CD is not working. I have just installed the new Hard Disk and trying to install the drivers, but I am not able to do so. Please help me with this asap. Regards, Dillip...


Download the drivers from here:
http://www.mercury-pc.com/downloads_list.php?productid=644

If the CD DRIVE is not working, replace it
IF the CD itself is not working, throw it away

Burn the drivers you downloaded to a CD for later use (when you have replaced the CD drive)

I need help installing a cd drive in an Antec Sonata III 500 computer case. How do I do it?


Unplug the power from the computer. Open the case cover. Carefully remove the placeholder on the front of the case where you wish to install the CD drive. Make sure you have the proper ribbon cable for the type of drive you are installing and that you know where to plug it into the motherboard (consult your motherboard manual).

Use the screws provided to secure the drive to the chassis rails (make face of drive flush with front of case). Attach an available power supply connector to the new CD drive. Close the cover.

Pxe-e61 media test failure


This POST error refers to possible fault with the disk controller or the hard disk. Most likely you have a faulty hard disk.
Try reseating the hard drive first and if the problem remains then you need to test the hard drive. Do this by removing the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and connect the adapter to a working computer's USB port. If this computer see this as an external hard drive and you can open the various folders and files, then the hard drive is OK and the fault is the disk controller on the laptop's motherboard.
If the hard drive is not recogonized then it is faulty and you need to purchase a new hard drive, install Windows etc. to get the laptop functioning again.

Dvd disk drive not showing in my computer


Hi!

The chances are that the drivers for them got corrupted and you can install them fron your motherboard cd. To install them go to Control panel-> add new hardware-> search for new hardware-> if it shows up then its good else add them from the list. It will then install the drivers from your motherboard cd (the cd you got with your system or from the cd you got with your disk drive).

If this doesn't help then check for the connectors(going into disk drive from power supply and motherboard) by opening your pc.

Please rate the solution.

Thanks

I tried to install my hp laserjet 3015 several times but I failed


  • It may take a little time for the CD to begin reading. Hit retry.
  • The CD may be damaged
  • The program may not load automatically
  • Go to the Start menu and then click on "Run". When the Run window appears, click on browse. Choose the D drive (or the one that reads your CD). Look for a file that ends in setup, execute, or install (these words my be abbreviated)
  • Double click on the file and it should be displayed next to "open" in the "Run" window.
  • Click okay and the program should begin to install.

Installatin problem xp


do you still have the other hard disk? Is xp installed there?
Then you can use the old disk as master and the new disk as slave disk.
Don't you have another hard drive? Then you just need your xp cd and put it in your cd drive. start computer and installation will automatically start. Make sure BIOS is set to boot from cd

if you need more help, just reply
