Hi,

It sounds like the software was not installed. You will have to install a new CD burner.

Take a look at the face-plate of the optical drive. It should have an authentic 'CD/RW' logo imprinted. If not, then some unscrupulous person could have removed your CD-writer, and installed a CD-reader.

Ihave a dell dimension 2400 It is windows xp home edition.What cd would I order to restore it back to factory setting. I would appricatae it thank you Karen


Hi. I have a dell optiplex gx240, and I has to do this exact same thing to it.
You can download an iso image from the microsoft windows xp website, it is service pack3. Then just burn the image to a cd, and then take out the cd and put it back in.

It should autolaunch on it's own when you puit it back in.
When it gives you your choices, select repair install, if it offers, otherwise just let it run as normal.
You won't lose any programs, because you are just replacing the operating system to fresh, not the files as well. All your programs should still be there, all the short-cuts, everything.

Then once it's done, eject the disk, and revoot.
Your computer should be good as new, and maybe even a little faster!

Trying to boot from windows CD and not working


If its the full windows xp cd by booting it from the cd drive it will erase everything and ask if you want to upgrade or advanced install I think. Your correct in choosing the atapi cd-rom as 1st boot device. The cd should be in the drive on startup. IDE is the type of hard disk drive. I'm guessing the FDD stands for floppy disk drive which you might not have that many but you have that many bay windows available.

Put disk in, shut down computer, Start computer and it should give you the xp disk contents. Be aware of data loss though.

Reinstallation CD will not run


When trying to boot from a CD on a Dell system you should put the CD in the CD-ROM tray and reboot the computer. When the initial Dell splash screen appears, you should press F12 (not F2 for BIOS) for a boot menu. In that menu you want to choose the CD-ROM drive. If you have made changes in BIOS you may want to undo them and try this way instead.
