It would be much simpler to remove your current CD-ROM drive, and install a CD/DVD-reader-writer combination drive.

1. Turn the computer off, and disconnect the AC power-cord.
2. Remove the side-panels from the case.
3. Disconnect the "power" and "data" cables from the back of the CD-ROM.
4. Remove the screws holding the current CD-ROM in position.
5. Slide the CD-ROM out the "front" of the case.
6. Slide the new device into place, until the face is "flush" with the front of the case.
7. Screw the device into position.
8. Connect the data and power cables.
9. Reconnect the AC power.

Windows will "find new hardware", and will adapt itself.

My Dell Dimension 2400 has stopped working - how do i restore the factory settings ?


Hello,

It appears your model Dell 2400 should have been supplied with the CD's for reinstalling Windows XP, CD will be green or blue in color and the drivers and applications that came with the computer.

If so, back up your files first to an external drive and then put the CD in the CD drive and reboot the computer. It should come up to reinstall XP.

If good to go, you will be prompted to install the second Cd as well as online XP updates.
Software that was installed after you bought the computer also wouyld have to be reinstall as well as restoring your backed up file.

Rememberm all data is lost when you reinstall your operating system, unless these is a choice on install that may ask for destructive, or non-destrutive (keeps files).

I am attaching a link to Dell for your to copy and paste into your web browser for the support page for drivers and user guide in the event you need to reveiw the process.

There's no sound or audio in my desktop that problem start when the time i need to reformat my desktop computer


Your computer problem is caused by a missing sound driver. You have to reinstall your computer drivers by it's driver installation cd. if you don't have it or your computer or soundcard driver installation disk is missing. then do this.

Try to find out your motherboard or soundcard manufacturer. You can download the driver that your motherboards or soundcard needs . But if it is too expensive there, try to use driver magician , after installing, driver magician will automatically detect your computers missing or outdated drivers. All you have to do is to Click the all detected driver that driver magician has detected from your motherboard, it will automatically search the internet and download the driver that you have selected. Press save, then install. There you have it. Have a nice day.

I HAVE A LIFECAM VX-1000 WEBCAM BUT I HAVE LOST THE INSTALLATION CD


you can always download the drivers from searching in google search. if you get the driver then save it first on the desktop . then run it. original drivers will always remain on your desktop till you have the computer. for future use also.
trust me that second set of installation disc is difficult for you to get.
alternately you can make online request with your webcam company to send you the duplicate cd but only if the option is available.

E-Machines T5048 Desktop - CD drive not working


Go to "My Computer/View System Information/Hardware/Device Manager". Now click on "DVD/CD-Rom Drives" and make sure your CD drive is listed. If it is listed and there is a yellow exclaimation point then the driver is not installed for it and you must install a driver.

1. I reinstalled Windows XP from restoration CD, now icons and fonts are in large sizes and there is no sound.


Sounds like a driver problem. You will have been provided a CD with your computer, perhaps the same one you restored Windows XP from, with all of the drivers that were installed on your computer out of the box. If you install all of the drivers on there, the sound and display should revert to normal.
If you can't find the CD, you need to find out the model of your sound and video cards and download them from the manufacturers' websites.

Cd need installed


Access Control Panel; goto system information and check to see if a driver is installed for your cd rom. If not, try installing using the "add hardware" feature of Control Panel. Also make sure the cd rom drive has the power and IDE cable properly installed.
