Hi everyone, I was installing windows xp sp3 on my compaq desktop computer through my hard drive because my computer doesn't recognise cd roms, So I can't install through cd drives. It installed to...


Hi
Have you tried to go into your cmos settings and enable the settings to detect your cd rom
You should be able to use a external cd rom connected through your USB port to load and re-install windows and your drivers if you have the motherboard cd.
The problem is your limited in your options to work from the hard drive but a disk also gives you the option to repair the filing system and replace missing files.


The problem with installing windows on one pc and it not working on another pc is the motherboards are not compatible, and the configuration has to be similar or the same so the hard drive can boot up and communicate between the hardware and software.


Your options are use a CD rom, change your MB or google your problem and hope someone else was able to resolve this issue.



Cheers

What's your problem? cd drive won't open


if you have warranty - contact the repair center, if not, open the case and check if the power plug of the Cd/DVD drive is all the way in. unplug it an then plug it back in again.
If that doesn't help - buy a new drive. they are like 30$ nowdays and install it the same way in like the one that doesn't work was installed.

Monitor to other cpu and it works fine. Tried recovery tools and rcovery disc but receive errors, boot from cd rom no emulation, and no hard drive found. Help!!!!


First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

Windows 7 password reset bought at a auction dont know main password


Download the Ophcrack Live CD: http://pcsupport.about.com/gi/o.htm?zi=1/XJ&zTi=1&sdn=pcsupport&cdn=compute&tm=48&gps=88_10_1152_572&f=10&su=p284.9.336.ip_p504.1.336.ip_&tt=4&bt=1&bts=0&zu=http%3A//ophcrack.sourceforge.net/ and burn it to a disk using Image Burn: http://www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=download

Then just boot the computer with the Live CD in the CD/DVD drive. If it doesn't boot into the CD you will have to go into the BIOS and set the boot order so that the CD/DVD drive boots first. Most computers will tell you which "F" key to press to get into "setup," also called the BIOS. Sometimes it is the "del" key.

Be advised that it is a criminal offense to break into a computer that doesn't belong to you.

Cd stuck on cd drive in Dell


If the Cd drive is not ejecting, try going into My Computer, and right clicking the Drive and selecting "Eject". If that doesn't work, then take a paper clip (or any other piece of wire that small, which does not have a sharp end) and examine your CD/DVD drive. There should be a little paperclip sized hole, this is usually next to the Eject button. Slowly push the paperclip into the hole, until you feel that you have pressed something, and then remove it. The drive should eject. This should work regardless of whether the computer is on or off.

My CD/DVD drive is not reading Rosetta Stone - Espanol Edition. It stars and spins, but then stops. OS: Vista SP2 Disk Drive: Unknown RAM: 3 GB - DDR2


Try playing a music CD to see if it works. Then try playing a DVD ( a DVD movie ) and see if that works. If the CD works and the DVD doesn't then your CD/DVD drive is probably the problem and needs to be replaced.
