I reformatted the hard drive...now I'm have trouble getting the cd-rom drive to open the info on the cd so I can install the new OS. Any advice? :confused:

Can you enter the bios of the laptop and check the boot order? You want it set to boot first from cd.

Who OS are you trying to install?

The Bios has to be set to boot from the CDROM.

If it's Win XP, 2000, or ME the CD is bootable and setup will start once the machine boots from the CD.

For WinME you will get a boot Screen with options.

Put in Floopy Boot Disk.
