Do a search for PC Fixer, a free tool. I had this problem on a Gateway I was trying to add this drive to. PC Fixer fixed the CD-ROM problem, but the drive seems to not be compatible with the Gateway for use as a master boot drive.

THE COMOUTER READS NO OPERATING SYSTEM I INSTALL IT WITH NO OS THE COMPUTER READS THE DRIVE BUT I CAN NOT INSTALL AN OPERATING SYSTEM


  • You should have an operating system install disk (or USB drive.)
  • Restart the computer and press whatever key gets you into Startup (typically F2 or Del.) You *may* have an option that says "Boot menu" that has another key (such as F12.) If you have that, use it.
  • Find something in your BIOS that mentions "Boot order" or "Boot priority."
  • If you have a CD, make your CD the first boot device. If you're booting from USB, make it your first device.
  • Make sure your install media is in the computer, save and exit.
  • The computer should now boot from the install drive and put the operating system on the hard drive.

My cd burner does not recognize a blank disk to burn. It keeps asking me to insert a blank disk even though I had just put a new blank disc in.


Are you putting the type of CD's it accepts?

Many burners will only accept specific disk types, such as most won't accept RW. That could be the possible issue in this case, what kind of burner are you using? If you post the model I could tell you what kind of disks it accepts.

Got a hard drive error. Replaced it and when trying to reload software, it will not recognize the new drive. Is there a special boot disk I need to use other than the recovery disk?

if this does not fix the problem it might be a registry problem

Close all open programs

Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

SYSTEM

CurrentControlSet

Control

Class

{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.

Upper Filters

Lower Filters

Upper Filters.bak

Lower Filters.bak

If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete

After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer

Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.

Erased hard drive, now nothing will load


Check to make sure that your Inspiron is set to boot from the CD-ROM drive.

It sounds like your laptop is trying to boot from the (now erased) hard drive first, finds that it can't, then stops without ever checking the CD-ROM drive for boot media.

At startup, hit F2 to go into the BIOS settings. Look for the "Boot Order" section. Make sure that your CD drive is listed first, then your hard drive.

Save your changes, and reboot with the WinXP installation CD in your drive. Now your laptop should boot from the CD and begin installation.

Good Luck!

the comp detecting the HDD is irrevelant, the fact it detects it means only it has detected the electronic part of the drive, if the actual mechanical part of the drive, and the platter are failing, then it will not work, i suggest taking it to someone who can test it.. you will know then
