Not found CD players in dimension dell 4500

I have a Dell Dimension 4500 running Windows XP Professional 32-bit.  Apparently, my CD players are not in Manager devices, desktop, Start Menu, etc.  They are both IDE CD-drives and are not available for download from the Dell Web site.  One of the discs is made by Micro advantage and the other made by Memoriex.

In addition, the computer seems to become glitchy sometimes not open programs and random errors when opening programs as well.  I have a Windows Vista Home Premium 32 - bit installation disk, but I can't use it because Windows cannot read CD disks.  Help, please.




You can run this fixit. The fixit diagnose and fix CD or DVD drive problems, when you can not burn or play CD or DVD discs when a disc is not found, not available or not connected.

However, given that CD players are not getting detected in the boot menu then it could be a hardware problem. I suggest you to contact the manufacturer for help.

It will be useful.

  • First hard drive 0 not found on Dell Windows XP computer

    Original title: Hard Drive not found

    I have a Dell Dimension 4550 Series computer using Windows XP SP3.  At startup the following message now "Primary Hard Disk Drive 0 not found".  Only the option F1 or F2 gives me or what appears to be a viable solution.  Impossible to access anything whatsoever beyond this screen.  All connections look OK.  Resolution ideas are welcome!  Thank you.

    Hi MartinL960,


    Remember to make changes before this problem?

    It is a hardware problem with Dell, through my research I found that users encounter similar problem solved the problem by making changes to hard disk parameters in the BIOS.

    Important: Change BIOS (Basic input output system) /semiconductor (CMOS) to complementary metal oxide settings can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from starting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the configuration of the BIOS/CMOS settings can be solved. Changes to settings are at your own risk.

    Since the resolution requires the modification of the BIOS that is risky, I recommend you contact dell for more specialist on this question help

  • "The operating system not found" message after the display of the Dell Logo

    My HDU failed (Inspiron 5100 using XP Home).  I installed a new HDU, you use Win XP Home oem disk (object of Dell original lost).  Use the drive as a partition.

    Now to start a 'Operating System Not Found' message appears after the Dell Logo is displayed.

    Pressing on Ctrl/alt/del removes the message, and the Dell Logo displays of new laptop starts perfectly in XP Home...

    I guess that's because I couldn't set up the small partition normally present (assume it has diagnostic data, etc.).

    No way to delete the message?  (?? The BIOS setting?)

  • Office jet 4500 G510-g, the imaging device not found

    I have an Officejet 4500 with a wired Ethernet connection. For some reason any, that my computer has ceased to be able to scan from it, I can still print and everything very well. I don't remember to make changes to the system and other computers on the network can always analyze without any problem. I restarted my computer, unplug the printer, uninstalled and reinstalled the software, active windows firewall settings and cannot find any reason why it won't work. I am running Windows 7 64-bit on the computer that does not work, the other computers on my network that still work are running windows 7 64 bit and XP. On the "HP Imaging device not found" error message that opens under more information, I get this: 8 [(1, 0,-2147221496)]

    I've lived the HPSDU and he said: there is a problem with the driver and he cannot communicate with the product. He said also it is impossible to scan with windows WIA, and finally it's the Twain component may be damaged. I have uninstalled, reinstalled, re-downloaded the Installer off the HP site several times, but can not solve this problem. Help, please.

    Hi crakerb,

    When you click on the plus sign on the error message is that all of the information it provides?

    Because you can not install the printer using the USB connection, it seems to have some problems with the operating system on this computer. Did you back up your data and perform a full system recovery?

  • Primary hard drive 0 not found Dell Latitude


    I just bought 2 notebooks of Dell Latitude D800 with no operating system. The first laptop is fine, but the second, when I turn it on it shows the Dell screen with the loading bar. The loading bar is to halfway to the end when it freezes. The system freezes on this screen for about a minute, then it beeps twice and a black screen that says:

    "First hard drive 0 not found '.

    No bootable devices - don't strike F1 to retry boot, F2 for Setup utility.

    So I go into the BIOS and see under "internal hard drive" and he says: 'no '. I checked and make sure the hard disk has been activated, and it is.

    I took the hard drive and reinstalled it. Nothing. The drive is a Toshiba 40 GB. In addition, mention, the reader makes a weird noise (not the click of death) and the hard drive on the laptop stays on all the time.

    Other D800 I mentioned boots very quickly and displays a no. OS screen, which is very good.

    So is my dead HDD?

    Thank you

    It is quite clear that the BIOS does not recognize the hard drive.  I suspect that the IDE controller on the motherboard has failed.

    Given that you have two cell phones similar to fool around with, probably the fastest way to isolate the problem is to swap hard drives.  Call the laptop that does not have one and one that works B

    If the laptop has now boots and cell B now is not, you know that the player who has been to A is bad.

    If A laptop computer still does not start and portable B boots again, then you know that the two disks are OK and the problem is the motherboard or the connector of the drive in the laptop.
