Hi there!

Try to check your CD/DVD's IDE cable and power.

Be careful on opening the CPU. Follow the proper way of opening the CPU and checking those things to avoid accidents.

Hope this helps!

Format aspire4736z


Hi there.

To format you will need:
Operating Systems (OS) CD/DVD

Steps:
1) Enter the BIOS when the laptop boots by pressing the Delete key repeatedly.
2) Once the BIOS is open locate the boot disk priority and set prioity 1 to the CD/DVD drive, set priority 2 to the laptop's hard drive.
3) Save changes to the BIOS and exit. The system should now reboot.
4) Insert your OS CD/DVD.
5) Press Enter when the system asks you if you want to boot from the CD/DVD.
6) The OS setup should now start, the first thing it will ask you to do is format your hard drive.
7) After you drive is formatted you can either continue with the setup and install a fresh copy of the OS or you can exit leaving the main drive clean.

I have never burned a CD. I have need of burning two tonight. What do I do?


are you burning a cd or dvd? burning a cd is pretty easy...windows will do most of the work for you. put a blank cd in your cd rom/ dvd burner drive. it will ask you what you want to do with the blank cd...vista usually asks you to format the disk...select ok.....a blank box will pop up....drag and drop your files to be burned into the blank box.....once you are done putting your media onto the disc....eject the disk...before the drive opens a box at the bottom of the screen says that the disc is being prepared for use on other computers. when it ejects, it should be done....you can try to put it back in to the cd drive and see if your data/media files are on the disc. ......now burning a dvd is alot more complicated....do you have software for burning dvd media? if you do, they have help me files and tutorials........some more good advice....youtube also shows good tutorial vids on burning. just type in "burn a cd or dvd".

Dvd's & Cd's are not being read


When this happen the problem is usually the CD drive, even if a virus can cause same problem.
To test if the problem is software, go to bios or boot options, set primary bot device CD/DVD, and start the computer with a boot disk inside.When asked chose boot from CD.

If the computer does not see the dvd drive, and does not ask you if to boot from CD on this conditions, then you have a faulty DVD RW drive.

Try first removing the DVD drive and refitting it in place, after removing battery and unplugging the AC adapter cord.

If that does not work, you usually need to replace the driver, even if on rare circumstances a faulty motherboard can cause the same.
That is however quite unusual.

the most common is a faulty optical drive.

Depends what software you are using to burn. Use Nero. then select dvd or cd or whatever. You must state what you are burning onto - you cant create a cd then put a blank dvd into the drive - common sense

Is it really asking you for ur software installation CD?

Most probably it may be asking you for your Operating System Installation CD. Please insert the Windows 2000 SP4 CD into the drive and try continuing with the installation

Best of luck

:)

Have a nice day
