You can either get an external optical drive (USB is the most common) or check if the files are available at a web site. (For hardware drivers, often it is easier to get the drivers by going to the manufacturer's site and downloading the files via your internet connection. However, you will not get any third-pary software with the download.)

Prices for external drives range from $25 up depending on the type of drive. Some use external power adapters; others are powered by the USB itself (usually takes two USB ports). Some are read-only drives; others are burners. For a variety of models, see .

I hope this helps.

(there are also USB to IDE/SATA drive adapters that can make an internal optical drive into an external drive for a temporary solution if you have a spare drive.)

Good day , this are the steps on how to boot from a cd. 1.power up you computer and press the "f10" key and in some computer it can be the "delete" key.some pcs may require you to press the keys continuously. It will lead you to the "bios" configuration.

Hi, I cannot boot my acer aspire 5315 laptop, No boot filename received. PXE-M)F: Eciting broadcom PXE Romm. No bootable device. Insert boot disk and Press any key. Please can you help. Mant thanks

It looks like your hard disk went invisible, and BIOS is trying all alternative boot options before it says that there's no boot device available.
I'm afraid that the most probable diagnosis is that the hard disk is broken; anyway you'll need hands-on service to establish what's wrong and what can be done.

After formating and i installed the windows xp,there is no audio


After you've formatted you computer, it is possible that the audio, LAN card and the VGA are not working properly, all the things you should do is to install the motherboard driver, so that all the function in the motherboard are working. That's why you're network terminal are not functioning.

How should you do! You just load the CD driver in your CD romm it will boot automatically.

Good luck !!!
