Ok...we'll do this one step at a time...Don't edit anything in the registry unless I ask you to. Rule #1...if in doubt, do nothing.

Click Start then Run and type regedit and click "Ok". Navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\CDRom in the left pane and look at "AutoRun" in the right pane, under Data, what is the last number in the string? (should be a 0 or 1) If it's a 0, right click on AutoRun and choose Modify. In the Value Data box, type 1, select Hexadecimal and click "Ok". Exit the registry editor and reboot.

Let me know what you find.

Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer Look at the value of the NoDriveTypeAutoRun entry. A value of 0xb5 turns off the AutoRun feature for CD-ROMs. To turn on the AutoRun feature, right-click NoDriveTypeAutoRun, click Modify, type 91 in the Value data box, select Hexadecimal, and then click "Ok".

this one says 000000091 (145)

Is that right or does the (#) need to be 91

All of the values you posted are good and need not be changed.

One More...Navigate to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon...In the right pane, under "Data", if the value for allocatecdroms is 1, right-click allocatecdroms, and then click Modify. In the Value data box, type 0, and then click OK.

Exit Registry Editor and reboot..

No need.

Let's uninstall the device again in devoce Manager...Right click My Computer and choose Properties. Click the "Hardware" tab and then click the "Device Manager" button. Expand (click +) DVD/CD-ROM drives and right click on CDRW/DVD SBW242C then choose "Uninstall"..."Apply" the change, click "Ok", and reboot.

Do you have the XP installation cd?

nick_mi...

All of your hardware configurations seem correct...Neither Dell or DriverGuide list any new drivers...that leaves bad or missing system files.

Click Start then Run...type sfc /scannow (Note the space between sfc and /) and press "Enter". You will be asked for your installation cd, so have it handy. Wait for the scan to finish (this might take up to an hour). When it's finished, click Start then Run...type chkdsk /r /x (Again...note the spaces) and reboot when prompted. This will run on boot-up so restart will take a while...be patient.

If you haven't run the scannow yet, try running this first. If you are already running it, continue on and run this it the cd doesn't work after running sfc.

I found this Repair Wizard buried in the Microsoft Site. You'll have to run the validation tool before downloading.

I hit retry, nothing, I look around for one that fits the description word for word, but this was the cd. =/ I took it out put it back in, hit retry and it worked. Then I had to hit retry like 20 different times(just hit retry, didn't have to take the cd out.)

Also, my cd drive won't open now and the light is not running at all.
