The hard drive on your desktop might be faulty. Before reinstalling your OS, check on your hard drive by running Set-up (by pressing F10 or DEL) right after your system checks the the memory at the start-up...access the CMOS and verify that your hard drive is listed, otherwise if not then you have to check if cables are properly connected, if they are then you have a faulty hard drive.

Hi my dell inspiron 530 computer recently can't play disc ,so like most people i checked for solutions for this problem ,non of them worked which got me furious until i found out that my Region fo


To change the Region code on your DVD player, open Control Panel - System - Hardware - Device manager, and click on DVD/CD ROM drives, then right click on the DVD drive and click Properties then click on DVD Region.
You can enter a new region and it also shows you how many changes have been made.
NOTE you can make only 4 changes and the player will lock permanently on the 4th change.
If you want to play DVDs from any region you maybe able to upgrade the firmware to make it region free BUT if you make a mistake or installed the wrong firmware the player will be a piece of junk.
The best solution to make the player region free is to install a piece of software (Passkey for DVD) that allows you to play DVDs from any region and Passkey for Blu-ray that allows you to play Blu-rays from any region. There are several available on the Internet but my favourite is DVD-Region Free From: -

Most of the time my INspiron 530 does not boot up. the screen is blank and the fan runs high. Sometimes it beeps 4 times. What could be the problem?


Sounds like you have hard drive problems !! Check the Bios and see if the hard drive is being recognized or it might tell you that it is faulty by not showing up at all.

Dell 530 won't boot up. Blue screen tells me I need to run CHKDSK /F. I can't get in anywhere to run it.


Try booting up in safe mode COMMAND PROMPT ....
Type CHKDSK /F
CHKDSK cannot run because the volume is in use Type Y and push enter it will start on the next startup...Restart the computer... If that doesn't work take the hard drive out and connect it to another computer and run it on that...

Faulty system restore


If you are refering to the DELL system restore on the hard drive you will have to contact DELL and have them ship you the recovery discs for your system. Once you have the recovery discs, insert them in your drive and boot the computer from the CD/DVD to attempt the recovery.
