Hello,

Try this quick fix :
Get a screw driver, unscrew your machine and remove your drive. If you cant do this by yourself,

just try and get a good technician to do it for you.
After this, power up your system normally without the drive connected.
Then shut down properly, and reconnect the drive, making sure that its firmly connected.
Then power on again and check it in the system BIOS if its now detected, then save and exit,

then boot your system properly again.Then when the system boots, just right click on my

computer, then properties, then select the hardwares tab, then click on device manager.
When you get to device manager page, try and locate DVD/CDrom Drives, then click on it, if your

drive is there, then just right-click on it, and select uninstall, and after this, on that same page,

click on 'Actions', and select "Scan for hardware changes". But if its not there. Just click on the

"Actions, and Then select "Scan for hardware changes".
This should automatically out it back inside your My Computer page.
Hope this helps you out.
Goodluck!

Have a used dell dimension 2400, hard drive died i replaced it, but i dont have the original os disc that came with the system, can i use my copy of vista, or find another copy


If your Dell computer had Vista installed then you can use your copy of Vista CD and you can use the product installation code that is printed on the Windows label that is attached to your Dell.
When you insert the Windows CD into your Dell and boot up your computer then select the CD as the boot device (ie 4=IDE CD).

After Windows is installed and activated then you need to install the Dell computer's device drivers.
You can download the device drivers from Dell WEB site, the support download page. Make sure you select your model desktop or laptop, better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on the bottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop. (If the Service Tag label is missing then go into the BIOS setting and on one of the BIOS pages, the Service Tag number will be displayed). This will open the page where the specific drivers for your model computer are located. Also make sure you select the Windows of the drivers for your Windows operating system. Click on this link to download the drivers: - http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/index.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen

Dell Dimension 2400 won't recognize DVD-ROM drive as Boot Device.


Enter the Bios and under System Components find the Boot priority in the Bios and move the drive to the top of the list, also you can press F12 at Start up to select it as well. :)

Dell Dimension 5150 cd-rom stopped working


Open your tower and reseat all the cables that are running to the CD ROM (generally a flat white cable). Also reseat the other end of the cable to the motherboard too.
Ensure that CD Drive is enabled in BIOS (Press F2 as the system boots up to enter into BIOS) Please get back if you need any further help.

First check your BIOS setting...Be sure that your DVD drive is enabled...You can also see wether your DVD Drive is enabled in Device Manager.(Rigt click on MYCOMPUTER Icon, goto properties and goto Hardware Tab)
Check the cables (power & Data) connected properly to your DVD drive.
if problem arise again there would be aproblem with the data cable. So replace it with another one
