    i want to do a repair of my windows Xp and i can;t boot from my cd driver. i open bios and set dvd driver as first option but nothing happen, any way my pc enter with my hard drive as usual. when a open BIOS i see that DVD cd driver has nothing, but my hard drive has a plus sign. I try to open from MY COMPUTER click on DVD CD driver but windows don't let me that way because the CD i am using is a version older that the one i have now.and i don't want to do a new installation. I don' want delete everything. only repair the one i have. My pc is an old compaq presario S4000NX.Thank you.

    So, your problem has nothing to do with booting from CD/DVD or the like :confused: It is all about you CD/DVD driver and the CD you are using. Get another one! more :confused:

    Before the BIOS screen (POST screen) press one of the F keys to enter Boot Device Menu and choose DVD

    F1, F2, F3 >>>>> F12

    One of those

    enter the bios .. go to boot order .. to rise the dvd drive in the order press and holding the "shift" key and tap the "+" key the number of times you want to rise in the order .. if you want it to drop press the "-" key .. Have you set the system time in the Bios?

    i try many ways, but do not work. I open bios with F1, y go to boot order with the arrow > i press enter, and i move dvd drive to first place in the list, the i exit and save. when i put my cd and boot my pc., nothing happen, goes straight to windows. What i see is: that hard drive has a plus sign, and dvd no. what you think about those mismatched files in windows 32. ?

    If you can not boot from DVD, it has NOTHING at all to do with windows

    Windows has not even loaded by then

    Problem is BIOS or Hardware

    Make sure your DVD is bootable too

    have you checked and confirmed the connections are good (Ide connector) it must be pushed in completely .. see if there are any jumper config issues on back of Cd/dvd drive .. If it is an older CD drive is it actually capable of booting a DVD if that's what your using?

    If you set the cd/dvd at option 1 in boot then that should be all you need to do.

    If it isn't booting then you've not got a bootable cd/dvd.

    Is this the original cd/dvd drive?

    When Windows Xp is up and running, can you put a cd/dvd disc in the drive and it read? (Try reading a CD AND a DVD.)

    From what I understand, OP is saying even when he sets DVD as 1st boot option, the BIOS automatically changes it back to the HDD and won't boot from the DVD

    This means to me it might be being seen after boot .. If the HDD is IDE and the CD drive is IDE and on the same cable it might be that either HDD jumper or the CD drive jumper may be configured wrong .. or the cable has the drives on wrong plug connector order

    Yes information posted is sketchy we need more info, a lot of those older IDE machines were set with cable select not master and slave.
    Another point I noticed
    So If he needs to reinstall windows he will need to grab that key. That machine should be OEM:SLP 1.0.
    It would pre-activate with correct oembios files and XP oem:SLP key.

    Have you ever try to boot from that CD on an other computer/laptop? If not, try that first! If that didn't boot, than your CD seems to be in bad shape and not capable to boot from. That didn't means that you didn't could read from that CD using in Windows explorer, that may is possible.

    If your computer is still in original stage, the Infos from HP will work and if not, it's an hardware or media problem. To find out, you need to test the media first in an different machine.
