Unable to detect cdrom after crash / reinstall Vista O/S


hpweb_1-2_minus.gifCheck the Windows Device ManagerDevice Manager is a Windows program that displays hardware devices installed on your computer that are currently recognized by Windows. If functioning properly, each piece of hardware has a corresponding entry in the Device Manager. If a piece of hardware is not listed, then there is a problem. There can be a variety of reasons, ranging from the easy-to-fix (such as missing or corrupted device drivers) to the more serious (such as broken or malfunctioning hardware).If your drive does not appear in Windows Explorer or there is no response from the operating system when you insert a disc, then you should check for an entry in Device Manager. This indicates whether there is a problem or not, and sets the stage for subsequent troubleshooting actions.To verify that the optical drive is listed in the Device Manager:
  1. Remove any discs that may be present from the disk drive.
  2. Click Start , type device into the search field, and then select Device Manager from the list.
  3. In the Device Manager window, expand the DVD/CD-ROM drives entry. There should be a name listed for each installed drive.If the drive is not listed or the DVD/CD-ROM drives entry does not exist and you have verified that it is listed in the BIOS , continue to the next troubleshooting item. reinstall the default device drivers Device drivers are software processes that allow Windows to use the computers hardware components. If the device driver fails or becomes corrupted, then Windows cannot properly communicate with the drive; in fact, it may not even recognize that the drive is connected at all.
Another common source of disk drive problems is that the correct device driver may have been inadvertently replaced with an incompatible one (for example, a generic driver for optical disk drives mistakenly installed by a third-party DVD burning program). In most cases, device driver problems like these can be resolved by reinstalling the default drivers and then installing any driver updates provided by HP. To reinstall the default device drivers:
  1. Click Start , right-click Computer , and then select Properties .
  2. In the System pane, click Device Manager link. If prompted, allow the computer to access the Device Manager.
  3. In Device Manager, click the plus sign c02993920.jpg (in Vista) or the arrow c02993921.jpg (in Windows 7) next to the type of driver you want to uninstall and reinstall (for example., Modems, DVD/CD-ROMs, and so on), unless a minus sign (-) is already showing.
  4. Right-click each listed driver one at a time and click Uninstall . When prompted, confirm that you want to uninstall the selected drivers. Do not restart the PC In the Device Manager pane, select any listed device and click the Scan for hardware changes button (near the top). Windows scans your system for hardware and installs default drivers for anything that requires drivers.
    1. Open Device Manager and verify that your device drivers are listed once again.
    2. After the device drivers have been reinstalled and appear in Device Manager, try running your program again.
      NOTE:Some devices may require your computer to restart. Windows will notify you when restarting is necessary. Save all open files and allow the computer to restart.
    If reinstalling the default drivers does not correct the problem, continue to the next troubleshooting item.
