My wireless is on but not working could have come disconnected? have they been having problems with this model?

Try to find if the driver for your wifi board is instaled in your computer.
If it is instaled try to identify the wifi board on your computer, opening the plastic covers underneath and see if the wires coming from the antenna are coupled to the Network wifi card

Good luck!

I need dvd rewrite drivers

Most Optical Drives use a generic driver. Boot into Safe Mode by pressing F8 during boot. Go to Device Manager and select Show Hidden Devices under View. Delete all drives under CD/DVD's and reboot. Windows will load as auto load as New Hardware Found.

You could also try re-connecting it. Finally you may have hardware problems if the above fails.

Not detecting cd drive, boot device. I have tried cd drive that i know it works in other server. I have installed new hdd and want to load os. It shows specs of hdd but wont detect hdd or cd.

make sure all leads that are attached to your cd/dvd have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty ?
you might have to physically unplug the cd/dvd drive restart your computer this should activate the found new hardware wizard
Click start control panel administrive tools,computer management,device manager scroll down cd-dvd rom drives you might see a yellow question mark ? right click you will have options to update driver,roll back driver,or select properties general troubleshoot, select driver click to reinstall drivers click update driver or uninstall then reinstall if this does not fix the problem it might be a registry problem if you cant see your disk drive in windows explorer
Close all open programs

Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders







This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.

Upper Filters

Lower Filters

Upper Filters.bak

Lower Filters.bak
If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete

After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer

Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.
hope this helps

Slow cursor

Either CPU usage reaches 100% to perform a disk operation or to read the Interrupt. Check the Event Viewer for Specific Errors. You can verify it using the Task or Process Manager. A Sudden increase of the CPU usage. Typically servers are configured to allocate the CPU for the Background Services. So it can happen. You should not change it.
The other things is your Mouse interrupts (IRQs) are not compatible with another Device such as a Network card you have. (Most probably a network card) That is a common issue. You have to check the compatibility of your Devices.
Other Scenarios:
Scan the System for Spyware.
Clean the mouse connectors.
Try booting into safe mode, getting into device manager, deleting the mouse drivers and rebooting will solve the issue as well.
Hope this will help. You can check the IRQs on the web. Please feel free to ask for further help.

Dell PowerEdege 1600SC not recognizing IO devices

Just go into the bios and insert the correct parameters. you shut it off before it could save the settings. Or hit fi on boot and it should take you into the bios and you cand sort it out in there. If you want an easy way, just do a system restore. Start,Programs, accesorys, system tools, system restore, just go back a day or two before you had that issue, and you should be good to go, good luck
