E drive/ cd drive

Thank you for your concern. what actually happened is, i right clicked on the E drive/ cd drive and one of the options that came up was "safely remove." i did not know what this meant, i thought that it meant eject cd! when i selected the safely remove option it deleted the link to the cd drive and the computer dosen't seem to recognise cd when they are inserted. is there a way to get the E drive / cd drive back?

My laptop says boot from ahci cd-rom operating system not found and i have no disk but i can switch it on and press f2 which brings me 2 the set up utility but then i dont know what 2 do


restart your computer repeatedly tapping the f8 key to enter safe mode while the screen is black once in safe mode where the only things working will be your keyboard and mouse allowing you to attempt to repair your computer

you could select the option start at last known configuration that worked this will tell you if and what file has been corrupted or missing then you will know if its a hardware issue then select restart if the problem still persists f8 back into safe mode you might need to select your operating system to load into safe mode

click start control panel administration tools computer management in the left panel events + to expand then system you will see all errors in right panel right click select properties this will tell you what has occurred and the time it occurred

you might use the system restore to restore your system to an earlier time click start all programs accessories system tools you should see your system restore option if it is a hardware issue the system restore might not work
if you need more help with this or if I have misunderstood the problem post a reply
hope this helps you

CD Insert Without pushing a button!


This will not work with a Laptop drive unless it is the slot loading type.
We already have 'Eject' when we right click the CD/DVD drive from (My Computer), which ejects the drive tray. But to insert the tray inside,we have to manually push the insert button on CD/DVD drive.
Another way most PC owners insert that CD tray is by pushing the tray itself. I'm sure nobody mentioned this when you got that PC, but that push to insert feature (Also called the bump feed) is not really safe to use over time. If you happen to say, push too hard because you are in a hurry, the gear which pulls your CD tray in can skip a tooth, making that CD or DVD open and close all by itself, or even worse, making it stay locked tight forever.

Here is a trick that allows you to insert the drive tray without actually touching that button. Simply by putting the 'Insert' sub-context(as shown in above figure) menu on the CD/DVD drives Context menu. For this to happen, we need to use a dll file from our windowssystem32 folder.

First of all, download this file CDEject.zip and extract it. There will be two files CDeject.dll and CDeject.reg. Now follow the step by step procedures.

1. CDeject.dll -> copy this file to X:windowssystem32 folder (here X is your corresponding drive letter, usually it's drive C:)

2. CDeject.reg -> execute it. It shows a warning message, accept that and click OK.

Now try right clicking your CD or DVD drive and click eject, then right click again and choose insert.

Amazingly cool isn't it?

So far I haven't found a way to make the CD hop in the tray all by itself, but I am still hopeful.

And you thought you couldn't program!

Have fun with that!

My dell inspiron 1545 refuses to boot after gone to sleep


This happen to my 1525 and XPS system when I upgrade to Win7. Check your power option by going into your control panel --> hardware and sound --> power options -->advance setting or just click the battery icon on the bottom right by your clock and click "more power option". You can change it to where it will not turn off your hard drive when in sleep mode. I recommend checking the Dell recommended setting. You may also need to update your bios, system firmware and hard drive drive firmware. you can download from Dell support. Enter your service tag # to get the right firmware specfic to your system. If it still fail than you will need to take it to a tech for more troubeshooting of the hard drive or mother board.

Need help formatting new hard drive , Thx in advance Setup steps say "Double-click the Lacie icon in My Computer to get the Lacie Setup Assistant" and that didn't happen .


The LaCie hard drive should have come with a CD. If you pop that CD in, then their directions make more sense:
1: Put in the LaCie CD
2: Double-Click on "My Computer" to open windows explorer
3: right below the "Local Disk (C:)" you should have a LaCie icon for your CD-rom -- double-click this icon for their setup assistant.

If you don't have a CD-ROM, you can still use the drive but it's more involved.


1: right-click on "My Computer" and select the option "Manage"
2: On the left panel of Computer Management, you should have an option "Disk Management" under the heading "Storage" - click on Disk Management
note: The Disk Manager shows your current disks in the top right panel, and ALL disks in the bottom right panel. You might need to resize the window to see them all.
3: In the bottom right panel, find the grey-ed out box that corresponds to your new disk, and right-click on it. One of the options will be to format it.
4: After formatting, if it doesn't automatically come up with a drive letter, you can once again right-click on it in the bottom right panel of the Disk Manager and assign it a drive letter.

Once it has a drive letter, Windows should see the drive and you should be good to go!
