I guess the question is not very clear to me .. but off what i can figure out, in your desktop
1) sound doesnt come
2) some problem with your cd from (kindly elaborate)
for the sound card there can several reasons for the sound not coming
1) Drivers not installed properly
2) you might have installed wrong drivers
3) (Happens in really old comps)if u have moved the cpu cabinet a lot lately, sound card could have been displaced from its socket, in such a case just take out the sound card clean it once and put it back again
Most of the times it is the driver which is not getting loaded properly, trying opening windows in safe mode, if the problem persists try reinstalling the driver.
and as per the CD rom problem kindly elaborate..
Cheers

Hi everyone, I was installing windows xp sp3 on my compaq desktop computer through my hard drive because my computer doesn't recognise cd roms, So I can't install through cd drives. It installed to...


Hi
Have you tried to go into your cmos settings and enable the settings to detect your cd rom
You should be able to use a external cd rom connected through your USB port to load and re-install windows and your drivers if you have the motherboard cd.
The problem is your limited in your options to work from the hard drive but a disk also gives you the option to repair the filing system and replace missing files.


The problem with installing windows on one pc and it not working on another pc is the motherboards are not compatible, and the configuration has to be similar or the same so the hard drive can boot up and communicate between the hardware and software.


Your options are use a CD rom, change your MB or google your problem and hope someone else was able to resolve this issue.



Cheers

I have brought a new computer that dosnt have a cd rom. I have tried putting in two different cd-roms but they wont show up on my computer. i have tried downloading drivers to help but it still wont work.


Hello !

Your CD-ROM should have at least two cables connected to it: a power cable and IDE cable that should also be connected to your motherboard. Disconnect and reconnect the cables and be certain that they are snug.

Some computers will also have a small third cable used to interface the CD-ROM with the sound card. If the audio for your CD audio CDs is not working properly verify that this cable is not disconnected from the back of the CD-ROM.

Hope this helps.

4600c not operating system error message bootmanager missing


You might have to go to the BIOS of your computer to ensure your drive is recognised. Once it shows there, make sure you change the Drive as your first boot device.

Wont recognise disk drive ide error


What you need to do is edit the BIOS so that the computer boots from the CD-ROM initially rather then the harddrive.

To do this follow these instructions:
1. Start the computer and tap the F2 key
2. You will now be in the computer BIOS, look for the option that says "Boot Sequence"
3. Highlight the option that shows your CD-ROM device and tap the "F5" key until it is the first one on the list
4. Hit the "Escape" key and select the option to "Exit & Save Changes".

If you restart your computer it should now boot from the CD-ROM. If you have any problems let me know and I will be more then happy to help you further troubleshoot!

My burners do not show up as installed on my computer they just disappeared


Does your CD burner eject or does its light indicator come up? I just want to check to make sure there's power getting into the CD burner. And if it does:
1. Right click on the My Computer icon on the desktop and select Manage
2. Click on Device Manager on the left pane.
3. On the right pane, select DVD/CD ROM drives to expand it.
Do you see your CD drive listed in there? If yes, right click and select uninstall. Then restart your computer. This will reinstall the driver that came with Windows.

If this does not work, you need to update the driver.

Our hp pavilion 4535 will not read discs


I'm thinking of a couple of solutions:
  1. Auto run as turned off, navigate to your drives (usually in the My Computer icon) and check for your disc drive (usually Drive D:). If it is showing a disc then you can right-click and open to see the contents or double click for an auto-play.
  2. If you open up the drives and don't see a CD ROM drive then it might have gotten dropped some how. In this case you will want to go to the device manager and check to see if the CD ROM drive is listed and if it needs some fixing.
