Right click the DVD drive on the laptop and click sharing and security.

Click "If you understand the risk, but still want to share the root of a drive, click here"

Under network sharing and security, tick the box "Share this folder on the network"

Click okay.

Now on the desktop type in run \\whateveryourcomputernameis\whateverthesharenameis
and it will open the DVD drive on the laptop.

You can also do this on your hard drive to share documents, music or whatever.

How do i fix my cd/ dvd rom drive on my laptop

Pavilion is a laptop, it had to work at some point. If the computer can't see it, it is not connected, probably'll have to remove it to check the connections, and most likely replace it if you can't light it up with external 5V...

If it came with a DVD ROM you have to plug in the fan and put the DVD ROM disk into the laptop then go into a file called 'Computer' and click on the DVD ROM picture now go through the setup and your fan should work!! If your laptop is running 'Windows 7' you MITE not need the DVD ROM. If it still doesn't work take your laptop and the fan to a computer shop and let them sort it out for you!! I Hope This Information Works For You :-)

My computer says check cable connection PXE-MOF:exitiing intel PXE ROM. no bootable device--insert boot disk and press any key. What does it mean, and how do i fix this?

Check your bios and make sure that your boot from lan is disabled, and check the boot order. Make sure that your CD rom is first, then your hard drive, then boot from lan. Boot from lan needs to be one of the lasts you use if you use your laptop for personal use.

Also make sure any USB devices, like flash storage or external hard drives are disconnected from the computer.

Bootmgr is missing

You have formatted the HDD in another computer and the “boot manager” was destroyed.
There is no operating system on the HDD and therefore the error message: “BOOTMGR is missing Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart" appears

The second message “PXE-M0F: Existing PXE ROM” says that the notebook tries to boot form the LAN but it’s not able to find an OS using the LAN connection!

Why all this error messages appears?!
Well, I think the CD/DVD drive cannot read the inserted WinXP CD and therefore in switches to LAN.

Note; You can boot from the drive by pressing the “C” button immediately after notebook starting or you will press the F12 to get the booting menu. Then you could choose the ODD as booting source.

If you will be not able to boot from your WinXP CD I assume either the CD is faulty or the CD/DVD drive cannot handle this CD.

Dvd rom is not recognized

Not all computers detect DVD-ROMs. Look at the label on your laptop drive. If it says it supports DVD-ROMs, than you will be able to use it. If not, consider buying a DVD-ROM drive.
