    It says "insert a disk" when there's already one in it. Open/close the door; same message.

    Same problem which started a few months ago. Have tried troubleshooting, updates, uninstalling and installing again, but all I get is "Windows cannot initialize the device driver for this hardware. (Code 37)"

    Cannot Initialize Drivers. I can't find the drivers on any website, although I had a link that stated an LG driver would work. That doesn't seem right though.

I did PC restore using Dell F11 reset tool / no dvd or cd recogni


Go to Dell's support site and to their driver page. Put your model number in the box for a search and a page with your drivers will appear, download the drivers for your model and do a re-install of them. download them to a temp folder and when they are downloaded, double click and they will self install, put off rebooting until you install them all.

Installed new WD HDD in dell 8400 unable to boot from CD


Make sure that the operating system cd has no smudges, dirt, dust, etc on it.

What I would do since you have two optical drives in the system. Disconnect one of the drives at first and only hook up one of the optical drives and make sure the jumper on the back is set to master.

Go into the BIOS and reset the bios defaults and have it redect the hardware in the system after this you'll get the same message so reboot into the BIOS and set the optical drive as the first boot device. Hopefully it will read the cd and you press and key to boot up off of the cd.

If this doesn't work then repeat all the steps i mentioned for the 2nd optical drive. Hopefully it will read the cd properly with this drive. Im checking to see if one or both drives have bad lasers in them.

If the 2nd drive doesn't read it then at this point disconnect the hard drive completely from the system and then turn it on and see if the optical drive can read the cd, if it does at this point then that means your new hard drive is defective cause its shorting out the secondary controller on your motherboard.

Let me know how things go and I'll help you further if you need some more help.

Try restoring your PC to a date when it last worked, probably corrupt drivers or can also be caused by installing or uninstalling software or your Anti-Virus or Internet Security program

start --> All Programs --> Accessories --> System Tools --> System Restore
Click Restore my computer to an earlier dat
Click Next
Choose a sutable date and then on the right click a restore point
Click next
and leave to restore
