I am wanting to upgrade from XP to WIn7
I have one dvd/cd drive which will not autorun.
I have configured BIOS to boot from the cd/dvd having WIN7 in it, but wil not boot from the disc
If I put any program disc it will not autorun. If I open it, it shows no files at all - nothing. If I go to properities it shows 0 bytes on disc, and 0 available. THis does not happen on another computer I have.
Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 3 (build 2600)
2.80 gigahertz AMD Phenom II X3 720
Board: ECS A790GXM-AD3 1.0
Bus Clock: 200 megahertz
BIOS: American Megatrends Inc. 080015 05/19/2009
DVD/CD DRIVE NEC DVD_RW ND-3550A [Optical drive]
What I have done so far...
I have updated/flashed the driver.
I have gone into properties of the cd/dvd drive and restored defaults
In the run command box, I typed REGEDIT
from there I went to the following path(s):
HK LOCAL MACHINE
CURRENT CONTROL SET
AUTORUN…………….. I made sure the value was 1, which it was.
I then went down the following path:
NODRIVETYPE AUTORUN……………Made sure the values were 145 (decimel) and 91- and they were.
This is all I know how to do - thinking now I will have to do a system recovery or buy a new CD/DRIVE –
Hope you can help..
