Missing system operation


Check the hard drive connections. If they are good you could try a new data lead. If even this doesn't work you have a failed hard drive. You will have to replace it and re-install the operating system.

How do I remove a cd-rom from a hp dv5


1) Work on a table.

2) Remove ALL power to the laptop. AC adapter (Charger) and Battery.

3) Turn the laptop over Front facing you. There is one single Philips head screw to remove.
It's on the bottom of the laptop towards the Front, and is just past the Microphone, and Headphone jacks.

4) Screw removed use a paper clip to open the optical drive tray.
The paper clip is straightened out, then a third of it is bent into a handle to hang onto.

Looking at the optical drive with the laptop upside down, there is a small hole to the Left, on the optical drive tray. Insert the paper clip tool you just made into the hole.
This is a manual release to open the optical drive tray.

Hold onto the optical drive tray with your fingers, pull the optical drive out.

If you are going to replace the optical drive, be sure to remove the optical drive bracket from the back of the optical drive. (Two Philips screws) Install the bracket on the new optical drive.

Dvd burner is not working


Is it the burner that is not working or it is the software?

Try one of these free burners to test the drive http://tinyurl.com/ledqnu

If it is the burner that is not working you probably need to replace the drive as there are usually no serviceable parts in a DVD drive.

Replace the optical drive on Acer Aspire m1201


based on the images i've looked on for the Aspire m1201, you don't need to remove the front panel in order to remove the optical drive. if there are screws holding the drive in, remove them and then slide the drive forward. if its held in by sliding latches and not screws, then slide then in which ever direction necessary and then push the drive forward to take it out.

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.

Almost


In all my experience im certain that either it is one of the following two problems.

1. The IDE or SATA cable physically connecting your optical device to the computer is not connected properly please check these by opening up your computer case and locating the reverse side of the optical drive and making sure both ends are connected , one to the motherboard and two in the backside of the optical drive.

2. The optical drive is faulty and will need to be replaced

all modern optical drives are detected by plug and play and judging by your previous attempts to install the device it's one of these problems.

cheers
