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?

please try to go to safe mode and then click start and open computer, hold the Alt key on your keyboard and press T, the tools box should appear then choose folder options.
Go to View, Click show hidden files and untick the three boxes that has the word hidden on it.
Click apply and Ok
Open the C: drive and look for the file called hiberfil.sys delete it and it should work.
To prevent this problem from happening again I would suggest you turn off the hibernate option for your computer.
Hope this helps!

I think you are concerned about creating a recovery console for windows xp, so that if windows fail you can have a chance to use it and recover the winndows.
You can install the Recovery Console on your computer to make it available in case that you cannot restart Windows. You can then select the Recovery Console option from the list of available operating systems during startup. To install the Recovery Console, you must be logged on as an administrator.
To install the Recovery Console, follow these steps:
Insert the Windows XP CD into the CD drive.
Click Start, and then click Run.
In the Open box, type d:\i386\winnt32.exe /cmdcons where d is the drive letter for the CD drive. For Microsoft Windows XP Professional x64 Edition, type d:\amd64\winnt32.exe /cmdcons where d is the drive letter for the CD drive.
A Windows Setup Dialog Box appears. The Windows Setup Dialog Box describes the Recovery Console option. To confirm the installation, click Yes. Collapse this imageExpand this image
Restart the computer. The next time that you start your computer, "Microsoft Windows Recovery Console" appears on the startup menu. Collapse this imageExpand this image
Yes, if you want to reinstall the copy of your Windows installed in your computer you need to have a Windows CD.
But try doing System Restore first on safe mode if you still can before doing a Windows reinstallation or repair to save money from buying a WIndows CD and from loosing all your files in your computer.
To do system restore on safe mode:
1. Restart your computer and when the Dell Logo comes up and keep pressing F8 until an option shows 2. Use arrows to navigate then choose safe mode 3. Click start button then choose All programs or Program depending on the Windows installed in your computer 4. Click on System tools then choose System Restore 5. Follow the intructions on the System Restore windows on how to restore your machine back to a previous date before this issue happen. 6. Your computer will automatically restart after restore is done

. Follow the directions below to correct this issue 1) Check to see if the CD-RW or DVD-RW is functioning properly.
Right-click on My Computer
Click on Properties

Click the plus (+) next to CD/DVD Drives and make sure the drive is functioning properly. If it has a yellow checkmark next to the drive, this is the cause of the problem.
