Hi, I have a Gateway GP6-566C SE. I am trying to have it read a bootable CD but it doesn't seem to recognize the CD on a bootup. Looking at the bios I can see that the CD is supposed to check the CD...


Most desktops will check the floppy drive when starting up anyway regardless of what setting is in the bios, try to look for any commands required for boot selection when you boot up...I have to hit TAB while booting up to select to boot from CD.

Let me know how you get on

Dell Dimension 8200 PC Desktop Cd rom not reading disk


optical drive troubleshooting is pretty straight forward, fist see if you can boot to the drive using a bootable CD like the Windows CD or your Dell Resource CD, use the F12 1 time boot menu test it.
Also see if the drive is detected by model in the BIOS (F2 at boot) if not seen, reseat both power and data cables, boot to BIOS F2, turn on CAP LOCK SCROLL LOCK, NUMLOCK, then press ALT+E then ALT+F then ALT+B, this resets bios defaults and forces hardware re-detection. If you have no floppy diskette drive, you'll need to turn that back off in the BIOS before the ALT+B
If all that is done and the drive isn't seen/cannot boot to with bootable media, swap the data cable with the HDD and try a different power connection.
If Drive still not connected, replaced the drive.
If drive is detected and IDd then try this

Just wont boot saying contact medion could be hard drive or cd rom code no..........0 .c00000eg


Your bios setting has been changed. So just start your computer and keep pressing f2 or f8 or f12 or del button in either of the cases. When the bios window opens then you will see the boot menu somewhere in it and rearrange the boot sequence to harddisk then cd-rom then network and then usb (in some cases you can also make floppy disk.) This will resolve the problem but if your os is being corrupted then there is no option rather than the re installation of os (it occurs in some cases.)

Aspire sa80 how to get it to boot up with dvdrom so i can install vista


Enter bios setup by pressing F2 key or DEL key. Once you are in bios setup, go to BOOT or STARTUP setup. Look at the list of devices listed from first to last. It might has floppy or hard disk as first boot list. By using + - or pageup/pagedown, move your dvd rom to first place. This means that when you startup your computer, dvd rom should pick up as first boot. Don't forget to put the vista cd in the rom before your computer starts. Just a basic thing to remember, make your dvd rom first priority on boot or startup list. After finishing the loading, make sure to reverse the setting back to normal. Thanks

My computer wont start...it keeps saying missing NTLDR?...what do i do?


Many times this error is caused when the computer is attempting to boot from a non-bootable floppy disk or CD-ROM. First verify that no floppy diskette is in the computer, unless you are attempting to boot from a diskette.
If you are attempting to boot from a floppy diskette and are receiving this error message it is likely that the diskette does not have all the necessary files and/or is corrupt.
If you are attempting to install Windows XP or Windows 2000 and are receiving this error message as the computer is booting verify that your computer BIOS has the proper boot settings. For example, if you are attempting to run the install from the CD-ROM make sure the CD-ROM is the first boot device, and not the hard disk drive.
Second, when the computer is booting you should receive the below prompt.
Press any key to boot from the CD
Important: When you see this message press any key such as the Enter key immediately, otherwise it will try booting from the hard drive and likely get the NTLDR error again.
Note: If you are not receiving the above message and your BIOS boot options are set properly it's also possible that your CD-ROM drive may not be booting from the CD-ROM properly. Verify the jumpers are set properly on the CD-ROM drive. Additional information about checking the CD-ROM drive connections can be found on document CH000213.
Additional information: This error has also been known to occur when a memory stick is in a card reader and the computer is attempting to boot from it. If you have any type of card reader or flash reader make sure that no memory stick is inside the computer.

Machine won't recognize CD-ROM after harddrive format


When booting up select whichever key gets you into the Bios. Normally either F2 or delete. Once in the Bios, find the boot up sequence and by the instructions that will be there to change the sequence change it to Floppy Drive, then CD Rom, then your hard drive with Windows on it. Press F10 to save and reboot.

Os instalation will not load


Hi Dobssand, the most common reason for a CD-ROM (With a Windows CD in it) does not start to load is the motherboard's bios is not set correctly. While in the bios go to the title Boot & enter boot order. This is a common boot order for a PC.
1st boot device = [Floppy disk drive]
2nd boot device = [CD-ROM drive] (Model number of the CD-ROM drive).
3rd boot device = [Primary Hard Disk Drive] (Model number of drive).

Second most common reason is the data cable to the CD-ROM drive is loose or not fully connected either at the CD-ROM or at the motherboard. (Check it).
If you choose not to enter your bios, you can still get the CD-ROM drive to boot the Win CD in this fashion. Load the Win CD into the CD-ROM drive. Power off the system. Than power on the system & start to press the F8 key once every two seconds. Windows "Please select boot device:" window will open. Using your keyboards up & down arrow keys high-light the CD-ROM drive that has the win CD in it & press the enter key. Windows should start to load. If you receive an error message stating windows can not find your hard disk drive. Than you must enter your bios & go to the title Boot. Your hard disk drive is not listed in the boot order section. Worst case! Your hard disk drive may be faulty. Find the manufactures name printed on a large white sticker on once side of the HDD. Go to the manufactures web site & download their drive setup software so you can create a bootable floppy disk. This will allow you to check/test the HDD & format it for a windows installation.

Or is this not the issue you are having?

Good luck!
Mike
