Question about Compaq Presario 700 Series DVD-Rom Drive (254112-001-) Plug-In Module DVD Drive

2 Answers

My Presario F700 won't recognize it's dvd drive. IIt doesn't show in the boot options, so it would appear that the BIOS is not recognizing it. I have tried the drive in another laptop and the BIOS detects it ok so I assume the drive is ok. Any suggestions would be most welcome. Thanks

You can use the auto detect function, as there is several models
of your product.To find the right driver.

Its also very important to select the windows version you are running

The driver you need is for the mainboard
or the cd/dvd drive.

It does no harm to upgrade all the drivers there is outdated.
Try to look in the device manager for outdated drivers.

Hope this was helpfull.

Try going into "control panel", find "device manager" and right click on it. In the list, find cd-dvd rom drivesand click on box at right side of line item. It should dop downand show your device. right click on it and you shoud see "enabe" or "disable". If it says enable, click on that.

Check the jumper settings in the back of the drive, by the power cable. Make sure your cd/dvd drive is set to SLAVE, with your primary harddrive as MASTER. Check BIOS settings, specifically your boot order, choose which drive you want to load first (usually HD 0), save and exit.
That's just the basics, though.
Another possibility is that you might just have a paperweight ;)
If so, try another drive.
Hope that helps

Hi, when i boot my Compaq Pressario 700ap i get a DOS screen the bottom line being that there is an "0211: Keyboard Error". I then have the option of using the 'F1' key to continue with the boot or 'F10'...


First, I would go into the BIOS by pressing the F10 or F2 key during boot. Then look on the BIOS screen for 'keyboard' and see if it is recognized in the BIOS.If it says "not present" then you need to ttoggle the TAB key or SPACEBAR to set the BIOS to recognize the keyboard.
There are other causes for your problem,but try this first.
