D drive has dissappeared

Hi,
I could have removed my D drive in th safely remove hardware(Bottom right of XP Prof.) Have and external hard drive and when removing it, I think it could have clicked on D-drive.
My problm is that when I uninstall my built in Dvd-rom and search hardware to reinstall it, I always get the yellow exclamation mark and the drive is not visible. I cannot seem to find a driver to download that would replace the incorrect driver that xp always find. At present I show no D-drive. Also when booting my computer with the operating system in the d-drive it has no effect
Can you please Help!

How do I replace my broken DVD RW drive?


Removal of the case will give you access to the drive mounting area. As a general procedure, disconnect the cables, remove the attaching hardware and remove the drive. Be sure to save the removed hardware for installation of the replacement drive

TEAC CD/DVD problems


Hmm, sounds different to the usual problems I've come across but try this:
Paste the following into a new text document and "Save As..." type "All Files (*.*)" and call it "DVD Fix.bat"

@ECHO OFF
REG DELETE "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}" /v "UpperFilters /f > NUL
ECHO Press any key to restart the computer.
PAUSE > NUL
Shutdown.exe -r -t 0 -f -c "UpperFilters reg key removed to fix CD/DVD-ROM" -d p:2:3

Run the file and restart your computer when prompted.

If you're trying to write to a blank disc, make sure in the drive's properties that you have recording/burning enabled. If you do, try re-installing your CD/DVD burning suite. If you didn't have one, try a system restore.

If this doesn't work or you've disable system restore, you can go into hardware manager and roll-back the driver. If you don't have a roll-back available. uninstall the driver and restart your computer. A default Windows driver should then install.

Check the drive is physically performing - does it load/eject the disc? Does it spin-up? Are you able to read any discs?
I you have any further problems, it would help if we had the model name of your laptop.

How do you bypass a hard drive password for an acer aspire 5349-2592 laptop?


The most common way that we know on how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug and then removing the Cmos battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard.

Another way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself.

Both of the 2 methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. So by cutting off cmos the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased.

cmos battery Under the keyboard or bottom of laptop - If you are working on a laptop computer the location of the dipswitch (almost never a jumper) can be under the keyboard or on the bottom of the laptop in a compartment such as the memory compartment. Although on some motherboards the Cmos battery is soldered in

Often many users will leave the administrator account alone or have other accounts with administrator rights. If you're not logging into the computer as administrator or have other accounts follow the below steps to reset your other accounts password.

Reboot the computer into Safe Mode
During the boot process tap the f8 button three times this will boot into safe mode where the only things working will be your mouse and keyboard enabling you to attempt to repair your computer Advanced Boot Options screen appears.

Select the Safe Mode option using the up and down arrow keys, then press the ENTER key. Choose "Windows XP Home/Professional", depending on the version of the operating system.

Press ENTER. Shortly, the welcome screen should show.
Log in as "Administrator". Click Yes to not use System Restore Mode.


Click the Start button. Choose Run and type in "control user passwords" (without the quotes). Click OK.


Select the "Administrator" user. Click Change my password. Enter a new password in the corresponding text boxes. Click OK. Write this password down and store it in a secure place Close the User Accounts window and restart Windows.


In User Accounts select the account you wish to change the password for, click change password and then enter the new password or click remove the password to remove the password from the account.


If all else fails you may have to clear the BIOS password by resetting the RTC (Real Time Clock) IC (Integrated Circuit) on your motherboard


Many RTC's require an external battery. If your RTC is one of this type you can clear the BIOS password just by unsocketing the RTC and reseating it



Hope it helps

Problem ejecting my fujitsu external drive even all programs has been closed, even if the laptop has already been restarted. how to eject safely without damaging the external hard drive?


With USB devices you can go down to the clock section of the task bar and click on the << symbol to expand it. Pass the mouse over the icons and find the one that says USB devices. Open the service and select the drive you want to remove. Then choose stop service and it should shut down the drive and give a message saying it is safe to remove the device. Good Luck
