How do I enable the drives on my Gateway 505GR?


Enter BIOS SETUP.
Change the "boot order" to put the CD/DVD drive as the _first_ boot-device.
Save/Exit, insert the CD-ROM containing the Operating System, and your computer should boot from the files on the CD-ROM.

Usb dvd writer can install xp?


Yes you can use a usb external cd/dvd-rom to any operating system as long as the bios allows you to, most bios's have the capability.

When the external usb drive has been connected power up the mechine, in post it should tell what to press to enter your boot menu without entering your bios and choose usb drive to boot.

BIOS settings


this gives a remote administrator data monitoring and remote control of the PC
regardless of O.S. or even if there is no O.S. at all. Kind of a 'BIOS'
level remote control.

ftp://download.intel.com/design/n [...] epaper.pdf

Remote-control capabilities allow an IT
manager to remotely power up, power
down, power cycle, reset or reboot. If
necessary, the managed system can be
commanded to reboot to multiple boot
paths – for example, to reboot the
system and change the boot device
from the hard drive to a diagnostics
routine on a CD-ROM, Floppy or Boot
ROM. unless you need it I wouldnt enable it. unless you are planning to do remote access to your computer away from home

Problem with DVD/CD-Rom drive


Right click on the device name and select properties and you'll open a window with access to enable the device or open the troubleshooter.
Sometimes if you disable, reboot and enable plug & play will reinstall the device.
If your drivers have been corrupted you may be able to roll them back and then update once the drives are working.
You might want to take a trip to windows update and see if it will detect the error and offer you a fix.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!

BIOS doesn't find SATA HDD


Hi fallacy,

If you have the system disks and you can boot from CD, I would just follow the prompts to reload the operating system. If the computer cannot see the CD or HardDrive you need to reset the BIOS setting to factory default settings and that should restore the drives to be used. Note: Hard Drive should be Primary Master and CD-Rom, (not DVD-Rom if you have one) should be Secondary Master. If you have a DVD Rom drive I recommend unplugging both power and data cords from it and making sure the CD-ROM is set to Secondary Master, NOT Secondary Slave.

This should allow you to boot to a CD and reload the operating system. Unfortunately your files are lost.

Changing Sony Vaio BIOS


you should be able to exit and save changes, which my guess is you are exiting without saving the changes. theres is a way around this, by pressing either F8, F9, F10, or F12 to access the boot menu, and then you can boot from cd to install your linux operating system

Dell laptop DVD_Rom not detected


well evidently you have a software problem, otherwise your dvd unit is broken, but lets hope not and try this:

you surely have the recovery CD or DVD that comes with your laptop and if you are clueless at computers you have to play attention on the following:

first is to ensure your unit is working and tha can be done by booting from any bootable CD. Just enter the bios if necessary, set the machine to boot first from cd and next from hd... then start with any bootable disc that you know is working. Windows installing disc can be, laptop recovery can be too... if it works now you know the problem is on the operative system and you need to focus on that.

try going to systems properties, then go to the exclametory sign and go properties with right button, navigate that options and if you are shown, ensure to enable DMA access mode. If you cant do this, just uninstall that device by clicking on the right button and selecting unninstal... and then do the same with any devices related to cds and ide devices... finally reboot your system and let windows put all that bach in place.

If this doesnt help you you might need to reinstall OS, so either backup your files and restart using the cd that comes with your computer or get back with more precise information, because yours is a very generic problem and many things can cause that.
