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!

If you are sure about changing in your BIOS CD or DVD as your First boot device then there might be chances that your Drive is not doing its job, you can try with other drive if you can manage it from your friend side. Second thing is that your OS cd is not a bootable Cd or DVD. you can give a try of your OS CD in other PC.

I canot boot my pc i select f12 then coming boot menu i select boot from cd rom but not display press any key to boot


If I understand what you are asking, you want to boot from CD but the boot from cd/dvd at start up is not showing up. It sounds like you have set in your BIOS enable boot from CD/DVD, But to be able to boot from CD/DVD you need to "in your BIOS" go to drive manager or it could be called boot drive priority, something llike that and put the CD/DVD drive first or at least before your Hard Drive.
That should make this show up for you now as long as its a bootable CD/DVD disk.
Hope this helps.

Your CD drive has an internal failure which is usually the laser head. It would be cheaper to replace the drive or use your DVD drive to read CD's then to have the laser head replaced in the CD drive. The disk tray motor system is not connected with the read write system in the drive and the tray ejecting or loading a disk is not an indication of the health of the drives logic system or laser head.

I cant reinstall xp, it keeps asking for a restore cd, how do I go around this?


This may be of interest to you. I might not be seeing this exactly, so please bare with me.
Possibly, you are not doing the following
Tell your bios to make your dvd for now your 1st drive.
Insert your windows XP setup disk in your dvd drive and reboot your computer.
Your windows XP cd will ask you to push any button when your computer sees your dvd drive while booting up and will begin loading the drivers for your computer.
I think this was lacking. Enjoy

Dvd not working in xp


hi,
what that means is your dvd drive if fine and there is no hardware issue, this is a driver issue
the problem can be resolved by going to your desktop manufacturers website and reinstalling the drivers, if you have the driver media with you you can

right click my computer> properties> device manager > then remove the dvd drive from here
by selecting and removing it and then restart your system
when your system will restart the dvd drive will be redetected and now either xp will install the default drivers on its own or it will ask for driver cd/dvd if it asks for driver cd.dvd put it in and then install the drivers and it will work.

further queries are welcome
