This is usually an easy solution. I say usually, because not every hardware company has Win7 drivers (not sure why though). Just go to the maker of your DVD Drive and find the right drivers for your drive (if they have Win7 drivers). I would be able to help more if I knew the maker and model of your DVD Drive.

Not working in the sense, are you able to detect the CD/DVD drive in device manager. If yes, try to re-install the drivers for the CD/DVD drive.
Re-install the CD/DVD drivers:
1. Press Windows+R and type "devmgmt.msc" and press "OK".
2. Then, find the Cd/Dvd device and right click on it, select "Uninstall".
3. reboot the computer and the Os will automatically install the drivers.
or else

Dvd not working in bios or Windows 7


It's a common problem when upgrading a OS? Is the DVD rom the only component that's missing a driver? Any Unknown Devices? Have you opened the Device Manager and looked for the DVD? In Device Manager, Scan For Hardware Changes. Not Listed? Have you done ALL your windows Updates? All the HP updates? Try the driver here: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=ob-58707-1&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&os=2093&product=3548266&sw_lang= Download the software and SAVE to a folder. Modify the compatibility of the software from Win 7, using this procedure: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/using-windows-vista-compatibility-mode/ BEFORE YOU START, CREATE A RESTORE POINT.

I have "windows7 Home"


They will work with Windows 7 Professional or higher due to a built in "compatibility mode"

All you need to do is... upgrade to Windows 7 Professional. Right Click on the setup icon for the game. Go to properties. Look for compatibility mode. Run it in windows XP mode

And there ya go :)

Help im changing my tx2150ee from windows vista to windows 7... can anyone help me how to do it? im new at this


You have 2 ways to upgrade from vista to windows7: 1- instaling windows7 from vista (this need to insert setup dvd of windows7 while windows vista it's running and choose to upgrade to windows, but this you can do only if vista and win7 are both 32 bit or 64 bit, you can't upgrade from 32bit to 64 bit), but i don't recomand this way because all programs installed on vista will remain on hard drive as a folder and you lose some space on hard drive. 2- clean install of your copy of windows 7. For this before you start install widows save all your data from partition C to another partition. After that insert your windows7 setup dvd and restart your computer. When your laptop is starting you will see on screen "press any key to boot from cd", just hit any key to do this. if you can't see this message go to bios and change boot option to boot from cd/dvd. For this restart your laptop and hit F2 or DEL key while restarting depending of what chipset your laptop have (try both) and go to boot and there you have instruction of what key to use to change option at the botom of the screen. Now i give you step by step instructions to install windows7: -after boot you will see a window "Install windows", here you can choose language, time, and keyboard type then click next -in next window click on install now -in next window you have licence agreement, click i accept and then next -from next window choose custom install -then choose from the right side "drive option (advanced)" -choose disk0 partition2 (usually is second option, just watch partition dimension, if you have more of one partition) -then choose format -click ok in next window -then click next -now your install is started -after restart write user name and computer name and clik next -type a password if you need one or leave space empty if not and click next -write your windows7 serial and click next -choose first option for windows updates -choose your time -if your windows installed any network driver in next window choose were you use your laptop -thit's it now you have o fresh copy of windows7 Good luck!

Copy WIndows XP from one hard drive to another


Hi,

Why are wanting to clone your hard drive to another on when all you need to do is install Windows 7 directly onto the new hard drive?
Are you wanting to save all your settings and data before you install Win 7 over the top of XP?

How can I download windows 7?


You cannot download windows 7. Windows 7 is an operating system you need to purchase at a retail store or thru Microsofts virtual store (you will get street mailed a disc). There is no download option.

Cd/dvd uninstaled when upgrading to windows7 now can`t use cd/dvd rom how do i get it back ?


go to control panel, system, hardware manager(or whatever windows 7's version of that is) and see if the dvd drive is even listed. My guess is you'll need to go to computer makers site(no ref to computer here) and get the updated utility download.
