There are settings to have cd automatically open when inserted. If you missed them then you must open them manually. To do this: insert the cd/ go to my computer/ right click on the rom drive that has your cd in it and click on open.
If you don't see your rom drive then that's a different story. Let me know if you need further help...

Hi,
There might be an issue with the drive or with the OS of the system.
I suggest you to first insert the OS CD and try to boot the CD. If the CD doesn't boot then its problem with the lens of the drive which should be replaced.

Hopefully the CD boots.

I have a dell precision 470, and it has 3 33gb hard drives (3 arrays) and have been formatted. When I insert the xp cd to install it, the setup tells me theres no hard drive in the pc??? I go to the system...


You may need to load third party drivers for them. During install windows asks you if you want to load them. Not knowing what kind of drives they are though i cant tell you what drivers, sorry.

Hello Wademyd,
It seems that the installation CD that you have is not a bootable CD.. must be old one.
Please down load the boot disk for windows from http://www.bootdisk.com or follow the Microsoft article link given below:
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=310994
Do not be intimidated by the article, although it looks big but there is very little that you need to do, rest of it is general instructions like where can you order a new CD from etc...
OR
Simple solution is to borrow Bootable Windows XP installation disk and install it using the serial Key that has been given to you.

Please let me know if that helps and please rate the solution if it helped you.. it will not cost you anything but will make a difference for me :)

All the best and kindly let me know in case you need any further assistance.

Regards,
Srinivas

My cd/dvd drive is not responding when I insert any disc


Hi yodogfish,

I'm sorry to tell you this, but if the drive is not recognizing any of the discs you insert (but it is making noise and lighting up), then it's likely that the laser has worn out. This is fairly common, but it means you'll have to replace the drive (CD/DVD drives generally generally cost less to replace than to fix).

If your computer is still under warranty, I recommend contacting HP regarding a replacement drive (or the store where you bought it, if they provide a service plan). Otherwise, you simply have to buy a new drive and install it yourself - they range in price from about $35 to $100 and are relatively easy to put in.

I hope this helps - please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

My friend of mine downloaded some pictures onto a cd for me. I put it in my computer and nothing is coming up. How do i view these pictures on my acer desktop computer?


If a window doesn't automatically open when you insert the cd you can click on the "My Computer" icon on your desktop then click on your cd drive. If you still don't see anything it is possible that there is nothing on the cd. If you right click on your cd drive icon and click properties it will tell you if how much used space is on the cd. If all the space is free space then the cd is still blank.

Computer games won't work i think it is the disc drive


Hi okaokman94,
possible reasons would be:

1. bad cd - return it to where you purchase it but before that, see if you can try it on another pc.
2. faulty cd rom - try another cd and see if it works,( audio cd,video cd)
