Hello, Follow the instruction:
Press power button and enter BIOS menu. (Bios menu: while PC make sound beep press button "delete")
You can see there BIOS menu. (Be carefully, don`t change anything if you can`t understand something) You have to find there general settings and in general settings you will see boot button.
There will be many boot buttons, but your settings must be that:
First boot: FDD (do not change it)
Second boot: HDD (do not change it)
Third boot: CDROM (if it is not, change it to CDROM or DVD/CDROM)

Cannot play dvd or connot red dvd

If this was having problems or seemed slower than normal it may have been slowly failing on you. You may be able to read a commercial dvd or a cd still. The cd should read if the dvd won't most of the time a it doesn't need as high an accuracy on the moving parts. The head goes slowly out of alignment with use until it stops reading. The dvd require a lot more accuracy than a cd which is why the cd will still sometimes work. If it is something else with the unit, it may not even be recognized by the operating system.

These are usually very reliable so when you have problems it is time to replace it. These are quite inexpensive now and there is nothing to fix. You should be able to find a dvd burner for about $25 and a plain dvd player for about $12. There is just a power cable and a data cable and 4 screws. You can replace this at home or a shop will do it fairly cheap if you buy the dvd from them.

How 'll i get a ethernet driver for IBM thinkpad R50e from internet

If you're using a modern operating system (XP, or Windows 7), it should be able to find the drivers automatically.
For older Operating systems, look here
Unfortunately if the modern ones don't work, you may be out of luck. Older hardware like that isn't supported well.

Upper and lower filter are missing in the CD registry CD player won't burn CDs in my sonic in a media Center says there's no CD drive recognized. Also in iTunes but it does work, burn CDs in my Nero

Hi, I have gone through the same issue in past. It all starts when you have installed a new cd/dvd burning software on your computer. All you need to do is uninstall Sonic and iTunes and re-install them so that they take all default settings that has been changed by Nero. In my case it worked like a charm.

Now insert a windows cd into drive and wait if it will boot frombut it-do not install windows but press F3 to leave setup and reboot from harddisk!
if it uses the cd, the computer recognizes your dvd.
