How do i replace and set up a new hard drive

Physical replacement is not hard. Just make sure you buy the correct new hard drive - sata/ide. Connect it the same way the older drive was connected. 1 connector for power, 1 connector for communication, nowadays usually sata. And you're done. After that it's operating system installation time. Most likely from a dvd/cd-rom drive. Most of operating systems now install quite easy next/next/next/default/licence key/next/next... I do suggest you get someone to help you install operating system anyway.

Why wont my xps 700 boot?

Not sure on the beep side but this is what the lights code refer too.

Ensure that all hard drive and CD/DVD drive cables are properly connected to the system board.
If there is an error message on the screen identifying a problem with a device (such as the floppy drive or hard drive), check the device to make sure it is functioning properly.
If the operating system is attempting to boot from a device (such as the floppy drive or CD/DVD drive); check system setup to ensure the boot sequence is correct for the devices installed on your computer.
If the problem persists, contact Dell (see "Contacting Dell" in your Owner's Manual).

I have an SR1000 SR182ONX desktop, but the front of my built in DVD/CD writer/player say SR192ONX. I can't burn or play DVDs. The current driver (TS-H552L) says it is not a writer. I need the correct...

It sounds like your operating system quit seeing your dvd/cd writer/player.
to check this locate mycomputer icon, or goto start and locate computer and right click on it.
a window will open, click on properties, then left click on Device manager you will see all the devices on your computer, and you should see DVD/CD-ROM drives in the list of devices. if you right click on this you have a choice of scan for new devices or Properties, if you scan for new devices chances are it will not find you dvd/cd-rom device, windows operating system very seldom does. so click on properties,
You will see several choices like reload driver, update driver, uninstall drive depending on your operating system. If you have the DVD/CD-rom device cd with the software driver then and only then you may uninstall the driver, so you can reload it to make the operating system see the device after you reboot the computer, then install the driver again... If you do not know what I'm talking about...Take the computer back to the repair shop and have them to the repairs to make the Windows Operating system see the DVD/CD-rom device.

Good luck...

Cd drive doesn't work

Check that the data-cables and power-cables for your drives are tightly connected, both at the "back" of the CD/DVD drive, and where the data-connector connects to the motherboard.

Also, on the back of each CD/DVD drive are three "pairs" of pins,
labelled MA(ster), and SL(ave), and C(able)S(elect).

Confirm that both drives have a jumper at the CS position,
or move the jumpers so that one drive is at the MA position,
while the other drive is at the SL position.

You must avoid setting _BOTH_ drives to 'MA' or _BOTH_ to 'SL'.

How to do dffr.

DFFR: Debug, Fdisk, Format, Reinstall
Debug to check the software is functioning correctly it has some debuging tools to do..

Fdisk can be done during the installation of os or you can right click on my computer -> manage -> disk management then partition... if want to fdisk without data loss then you can use disk partition software

Formating can done to disks directly by right clicking on particular drive and to formate the disk with operating system you need to have bootable cd or dvd

to reinstalation of operating system can be done using any bootable cd or dvd disks...
and if you want to reinstall a software you can just put the software cd or dvd and then there would be an option for that just select it...

I have a compaq presario SR2150NX and i need to replace the CD drive. What should i buy

The solution is that do not replace the cd drive !!
You could buy a new DVD writer drive which can be very useful.
You can use both "cd drive" and the new "dvd drive" at a time.
New DVD drive comes only for rs.1200/- to 1500/- .(LG,Samsumg or moserbaer).

Yes ! you can operate them normally as usual.
Only call your computer engg. to make connections or the shopman to fit the dvd and cd drive.

Have problem with computer allowing me to copy to dvd-rw or cd-rw. I can play both, but can not copy to discs. I have windows xp professional version 2002 service pack 2

Please remember to always note Computer specifications and Operating system details when you post a problem and to explain your problem in more detail( Specify your CD-ROM / DVD Drive more)

If you cant burn DVDRW or CDRW it is likely that your Drive does not support burning these Formats. You can check on your drive at the front; it should tell you what it supports.

Another solution could be that you are not using the correct software to burn your DVDRW/CDRW. I recommend using: Nero

Kind Regards,
