You need to check if it is a specific disc isssue or driver error or if it is the actual cdrom drive that is not functioning correctly. Please go to device managers and see if your cd rom drive is working correctly, then post back.

Registry corrupted


There is way too little information to solve this problem.
The registry does not corrupt a CDROM drive.
A CDROM drive does not corrupt a registry.
A boot setting is not a registry.

If your computer cannot find the CDROM drive during BOOT, it may be unplugged or turned off in the BOOT Settings.

Most likely, the drive is defective and needs to be replaced. The new drive will be automatically recognized during boot or you may need to turn it on in the boot settings.

Anything else will need a much more detailed question.

No boot sector on hard disk - No bootable devices - strike F1 to


AFAIK all XP disks were bootable so maybe check your bios options.
If they are correct and it still does not boot them goto bootdisk.com and download the floppy setup disks for XP. You could then set your laptop to boot from floppy and install xp from there.

Unable to boot win xp cd. not detected by compaq presario 5000 series interneal cd rom LTN 403 DQ24


Drive requires cd drivers to run Boot CD.
Some versions came with floppy disk to start cdrom drives, This will also require a floppy drive.

You may also try hitting f10 to enter bios setup make sure cdrom is bootable.

CDROM Not support for 945 GCNL intel Board


Hey there shivanand, the problem you have seems to related to the bios setup. Try restarting and entering setup page when prompted (F2). Search for the boot sequence setting and enter it. Adjust your setting to have your hard drive as primary boot device. Save the changes and exit to continue setup. Hope it helps. Good Luck!

Cd rw/dvd rw now working


If you know how to open your laptop, you can try seeing if the cable to the CDROM is connected properly. On startup, does your computer recognize the drive? If it's not the cable, you need a new cdrom drive.
