Will another computer boot from that CD?

Disconnect the disk-drive, so that the computer cannot boot from it, and try again to boot from the CD.

Is it possible that the CD-drive is failing, and cannot read *ANY* CD disks?

Hard drive won't reboot (jumpers not set proper)


Just google your drive's make and model and search the results for a diagram of the jumper settings.
If you have a SATA drive, there ARE no jumpers. If the drive is a PATA, then if it's connected with another drive or cdrom, then make the cdrom 'slave' and the disk drive 'master'.
Check your bios setting sometimes bios changes the boot order esp. if bios doesn't find a boot disk- make sure you have your desired boot device showing in the boot setup.

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.

How to boot from a USB CD/DVD ROM MY System is Dell Optiplex 170L Thanking in advance


If you want to boot from a external cd/dvd rom here's what to do.
  1. Connect your USB CD/DVD ROM to your computer.
  2. After connecting, you must start from boot up. so Reboot your computer.
  3. You must go to your bios settings, so during boot, press DELETE or if it doesn't work reboot again and try F2.
  4. Now once on the bios settings, search for the boot device, or boot priority.
  5. You must make your USB CD/DVD ROM as First boot, or just place it at the top of the list.
  6. You can adjust the position by pressing (-)minus and (+)plus signs in your keyboard.
  7. Now once the USB CD/DVD ROM is at the top. press F10 to save the changes and click Yes.
  8. And that's it. Your PC will now boot from the USB CD/DVD ROM.
Goodluck, Hope my solution will help, Please give some feedback regarding my solution.

I assume Dban worked.....worked so well I am froze at there very first screen {biostar mobo logo} and cant get any farther to load OS or even to the CMOS to even check settings......help pls


Once the drive is wiped that's about as far as one can get because there is no longer an OS to load. Power down the computer. Then turn it back on while hitting the "del" key repeatedly. If del doesn't work try the "F" keys, usually F2. Once in the BIOS, set the boot order for the cd/dvd drive to boot first. Exit using F10 to save. Insert your CD/DVD that has your operating system in the drive and reboot to install the new OS.

If you still can't get into the BIOS, power down the computer, unplug the power cord, remove the side panel and then remove the CMOS battery for 3 or 4 minutes. Put the battery back in and repeat the above instructions.

Usb cd boot


you need to set the boot device priority in the BIOS in such a way that the computer will take an external CD/DVD-drive as first boot device. to do this, you need to enable USB legacy support first, save and exit from the BIOS settings and then return to the BIOS to set the USB-CD/DVD-drive as primary boot device.

Hp 530 notebook cant boot from a cd drive


There is one possible reason for this issue
  1. CMOS battery
Troubleshooting Steps
Open the computer case and find the battery on the computer motherboard, verify that it will be accessible and that it can be removed. Most computers today use a coin cell CMOS battery. Removed the battery and put it back. This will reset the BIOS setting to default. Change the setting and select first boot device as CD ROM. If that doesn’t work then replace the CMOS battery. After replacing the CMOS battery please change the BIOS setting and select first boot device as CD-ROM.
