The easiest way to fix that is to just install a new dvd writer unit - it's very easy to do it
http://www.build-your-own-computer-tips.com/install-a-cd-rom-drive.html
and a new one is really cheap, just 30 €.

    Same link, shortened http://amzn.to/h3P2ZX . You don't need a new driver for a writer, it uses the generic Windows one.

There probably is no way to fix this. If it is the problem, getting and installing a new cd drive is very simple. You can buy a new drive here: http://www.newegg.com/Store/SubCategory.aspx?SubCategory=600&name=Blu-Ray-Burners&Order=PRICE. To remove the old one, all you need to do is open up the side, unscrew the one or two screws holding it to the case and unplug the two cables that are attached to it. The install the new one, slide it in attach the cables and put the screws back in. It is as simple as that and should work just fine after that. If you don't need the Blu Ray part of the drive you can always save some money by buying one of these instead: http://www.newegg.com/Store/SubCategory.aspx?SubCategory=5&name=CD-DVD-Burners.

I have an HP XW8000 with a Matrox Parhelia 128MB card on Windows 7-32bit. I tried to upgrade the Matrox bios to better perform w/Win 7....but, it appears that the bios may not have taken properly and now...


never change BIOS unless:
1: the PC has issues, post them and ask at HP , no here.
2: if HP tells you to flash the BIOS, 99.9 % of time they will not.

where did you get this BIOS> HP, seems not.
BIOS must be carefully matched, too the hardware first.
this pc only supports XP , not W7, per HP official site.
so there is no W7 BIOS for any XW8000, period
so that means you got the bios FROM A VIRUS SITE, OR WORSE.
Did you pay cash for it, ? omg.

what we do is backup the bios , first
so there is a regression path, if it fails. as most do. (wrong bios)


the one and only correct bios is there at HP.
data title.
HP Workstation xw8000 System BIOS
JQ.W1.18_1.19 Rev. A3.9 MBMay 31, 2005


Matrox.
this PC came with 3 video cards, not one was a MATROX.
so did you flash it, you never said what you flashed.
here is a list of all possbible flash rom devices.
HP MOBO BIOS
Video cards. HP and 100s of others
HDD Bios.
DVD drives, vast rom updates.
RAID
SATA chip
this PC has over 24 FIRMWARE upgrades,
if you read the HP page, not one is for W7,
infact the last update was 2007, 2 years before w7, was released.

here is your official pages
id recommend getting it all, as HP is about to drop support on it.
the 10year rule , ok>
this one is 2005 PC, so is ending soon.

here are all your drivers, and such, NO MATROX.
https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/hp-workstation-xw8000/96495

here is MATROX
they call it BIOS but its really BIOS extension for video only

Restore disk xw8000


I dont know if HP will have such Restore CDs since this machine is quite old but, you can restore such systems with a little know how. Your product key should be on the desktop (sticker) and you can use such product key when installing the OS (Windows, etc). I would see if you know anyone with an old Windows XP or Windows 2000 CD and you can load that then go to the following site for drivers.

LG GH22 dvd writer - not reading


I had the same problem with the GH22 Internal drive on vista. Assuming this is the only cd drive you have, just go to the device manager and remove/uninstall anything under "DVD/CD Rom Drives" then restart. It should get picked up and recognized properly. It took a couple of restarts to work. For refrence, I only have the LG GH22NP20 installed, what appears in device manager are 2 items... (1)HL-DT-ST DVD-RAM GH22NP20 SCSI CdRom Device... (2) KU1051Q EAG855E SCSI CdRom Device... Incase you have multiple cd drives, this should help tell em appart. Enjoy. IDK399

Xw8000 beeps


This code is either for improperly seated or bad RAM or improperly seated or bad video card. Try reseating these parts before spending $$ for replacements as it might just be they aren't fully seated in the slots. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.
