I dont have a dvd driver only a cd rom one and when i put a dvd in nothing happens


Hi,

The reason behind that is because the CD ROM cannot read DVDs. If you want to play or install DVD based programs you need to replace your CD ROM with a DVD-ROM or DVD-RW. You also can purchase an external DVD ROM if you dont want take that CD ROM from its place.

Rating my assistance will greatly be appreciated. Thank you for choosing Fixya!

I put in a disc and no options are coming up on the screen and the disc is not reading burning nor burning cd


Try and access the CD-ROM drive from My Coputer folder. If the CD can be read, that means that auto run is disabled on your system. If still you cann the read the CD, then there is a problem with your CD-ROM drive. Try cleaning the CD-ROM drive lens with the appropriate cleaning kit.

Programs not reading the burner


you mean CD/DVD rom is not being found by ur system.
Well check out in my computer whether CD rom is displayed or not. and if not, then i guess u've to open ur cd rom. Dont worry, m not sayin u to open it completely, unscrew few screw from behind, u'll find a power cord from cd rom. adjust that. and also adjust the data cable connected. This might be a problem due to loose connections of power cord or data cord.
If still it doesn't works, then it might be ur system problem. try to restore it using System Restore in Accessories-System Tools to the date when u last used it...
hope it fixes u up....

Windows XP Unsuccessful on Start Up


no you just need to fix your bios problem, if you dont have the manual take the battery out of the motherboard that keeps power to the bios keep it out for a few minutes put it back in then turn it on it should go to bios automatically then just go to set best defaults for ststem hit y for yes then hit enter and it should take off fine if it dont then you need to take it to a pro who can reset it for you manually or reprogram it that would be cheapest for you without trashing it.
