    No detection problem in BIOS Utility SET UP & during booting. But there is no CD ROM drive on My Computer. I've done many ways like Device Manager, REGEDIT, System Restore & Driver Update. In Device Manager, there is CD ROM entry with exclamation ( ! ) mark. When I update the driver..."Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)". In REGEDIT, when I click the {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} the upper/lower filters didn't appear. System Restore has "no improvements" as well. And it's very difficult to find "Driver Update" support from the manufacturer. I wish someone can provide info to solve my problem. And who knows, may be I can return back something to him/her like a simple "Thank You so much".

    Thanks for comment by chandra_anc, posted on Feb 05, 2008. There's a possibility that my problem is of "corrupt driver". Now, how can I reformat or reinstall my system if my optical drive is not working properly? The same situation appears even I replaced the ODD with the good one. Is there any other way that my system disc can be read with other device? Still, thank you so much for your effort & support to my problem.

    I cannot view my CD ROM Drive, It is not even listed in the device manager. I have tried deleting upper and Lower filters in regedit, however, I did not see any filters.

Is the LED of your CD ROM blinking? If yes then go to device manager by right clicking the My Computer icon and then click the Properties command. In the Properties window select the Hardware tab and then click the device manager. Is the CD ROM entery there! yes> right click and enable the device. If no then reformat your hard disc and reinstall.
In case your CD ROM's LED is not blinking (Rarest case) then simply check all the cables connected to it, atleast the power cable. if it is still not working, your CD ROM got damaged and there is a time to change it.

    The only problem here is of corrupt Driver. It might have gone out of Order by its own or due to some Viruses. The best possible option in less time is that reformat and reinstall your system. Of course, you must take backup your Data on a Flash/Pen Drive before you do so.

How do i get missing ntldr back


you are missing a key boot file for windows that is special to XP.

Load your installation disk.
.
restart your computer and when the F2 setup appears in right bottom corner (right after starting) press the F8 key (couple of times) and choose CDrom drive. (if you miss, try CTRL ALT DELETE--to reboot and try again.

(if that does not work, you will have to go into F2 setup and tell the computer to boot from the CDROM--you will find it by looking on each tab for a list of CDROM, Hard Drive, and listing of boot disk priority. Save you change by exiting BIOS set with F10.

At this point you can choose R for repair.
windows should repair itself. Once done, PC will reboot and you should be good.

** if other files are suddenly missing or other weird things, I would recommend a new install of windows. You should have up to date files for antivirus and malware.

You have one of two problems....

1 - The driver for the cdrom drive has become corrupted somehow and needs replacing. Go out to the ACER website and download the cdrom driver specific to your make and model of computer (it is IMPORTANT that you provide specific information in the window boxes to get the correct driver for your hardware.) Once you have the new driver, uninstall the device from within Device Manager. Reboot the computer and when Windows proclaims it has found a new device, select to install the device driver from a specific location. Browse to the folder where you expanded the drivers and let Windows install and update the drivers from that location. OR the other possibility is....

2 - Your cdrom drive has died. Remedy, have it replaced.

I just installed a new hard drive into my gateway desk top and put recovery cd in and its says missing operating system


Hello,

You will need to go into the BIOS screen and set the first boot device to CDrom. You can get to BIOS when the machine first boots, as soon as you see writing on a black screen press the bottom to get to setup. When you get to the setup screen look for an option to set boot devices or "boot priority". The first boot device needs to be CDrom and the second device can be Hard Drive. Now save the settings. This time on boot the computer will boot to the CDrom restore disk and you can follow its guides to restore your system.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

Bios how to clear


Hi mdgsc,

You don't need to clear the Bios, what you need to do is open the bios, by either the delete key, or F2 key, or when your computer reboots, it should tell you on the first screen what key to push to get into the Bios setup. Once your in there, look for Boot drives, and change your boot drive to first priority your CDROM dirve, so it will look first at your CDROM, prior to your hard drive. That message is because it's looking at the hard drive.

Give a try,

Good Luck and don't forget to leave a rating based on my solution.

Thanks Mark
