Dell inspiron 2200. The DVD ROM can read DVD's but Im unable to boot from it with a boot disk.


Have you verified that the disk you are trying to boot is bootable and not damaged on it's boot sector?
Does the drive read other DVDs (after boot into OS?)

Hello
Head of to the Acer website.Put in your model and serial # of your laptop. Find and download the cd or dvd drivers and install them on your laptop.

Also have you done the windows updates? Usually this will solve the problem.

Booting with External DVD for Dell Inspiron 1525


Power on your system, Press F2 on Dell logo. This would take you to system BIOS. Ensure that USB controller is ON, and USB emulation is also set to ON. Save settings and Exit. System would reboot now. Press F12 on Dell logo, and select USB ROM as the boot device. This should boot your computer through your External drive. If it still doesnt work, try switching to a different USB port. If none of these steps work, it may be a problem with the boot sector on your External drive.

Good Luck!

Problem regarding booting the laptop


first, check if the hard drive is detected on bios. if it's not then try reseating it. restart computer and enter advanced boot options (by pressing f8 upon restarting). select last known good configuration then press enter, if it still doesnt load windows, restart system and enter advanced boot options again and select safe mode. if it still doesnt boot then you need to reinstall windows.
you will need to get an external cd/dvd rom in order to reinstall windows.
you can try copying the windows disc content onto a flash drive and boot from it but that method is not guaranteed.

Upgrading bios without booting??


Hi,
Go to the following link, download the BIOS file and save it on the desktop.If you are running windows vista. Right click on the file and left click on Run as adminstartor. Follow on screen instructions and the BIOS would be updated. You would not require any external media for the job.

Points to remmber :
1. Disconnect all external devices from the laptop
2. Both AC adpater(power cord) and battery should be in the system
3. The system would automatically shutdown and restart the system. Donnot press button during this stage.

On personal note , i would suggest to redo your windows and all problems would be resolved.

Thanks
Mandeep


Do remmber to rate the solution, it helps me improve. In case you need more support let me know.

Cd-dvd rom error code 10. failed to start


Hi,

I had similar problems with my HP computer and i found either uninstall it through device manager the reinstalling it through new hardware wizaed in control panel. Or if that doesnt work try opening your laptop up and unplugging/removing the drive itself and restarting the laptop then turn it off again and put the drive back in the computer should then register it as a new device and reinstall it. that second option worked for my drive so it should hopefully work for yours

DVD ROM


Have you tried using a lense cleaner disk?

Can you hear the disk spinning at all?

Is the problem with both cd and dvds?

What kid of disk are you trying to play? Some dvd roms will not read dvdrw disks.
