Lap dvd cannot open or eject


Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll down cd-dvd rom drives you might see a yellow question /exclamation mark ? ! or a red X right click to update driver

you might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd/dvd restart your computer then plug them back this should activate the found new hardware wizard

if this does not fix the problem it might be a registry problem if you cant see your disk drive in windows explorer


Close all open programs

Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

SYSTEM

CurrentControlSet

Control

Class

{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.

Upper Filters

Lower Filters

Upper Filters.bak

Lower Filters.bak

If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete

After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer

Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.


if there is a small hole on the panel of your dvd drive push a straightened paper clip inside until you feel it press down this will open up the drive

hope this helps

Packard Bell computer won't play dvds.


This sounds like a common problem. You need to install the drivers (small programs that instruct the computer to notice and manipulate peripherals, like a dvd or cd player, sound card, etc...).

The easiest place to find your specific driver is at the Packard Bell web site under support > Downloads. There are MANY sites (even some that advertise on this very site) that say they have the drivers for your dvd drive, but go directly to your manufacturer's web site. These companies that provide drivers for computers install a program into your computer and there is a fee for use of these web sites.

UPDATE: I just checked the Packard Bell Web Site and was unable to find specific drivers for your particular model. They stopped making them some time ago, and no longer support the model. That being said, you can still conceivably find the drivers, it will just take some investigative work on your part. In doing a broad search on the internet, I found that many people are looking for that very driver, which is an indication it has become hard to find.

Hello,

We need a few clarification questions answered before we can proceed. Okay?

What is the model of your Packerd Bell computer? In you desktop you can press simultaneously the Windows key and the Pause key and the information should be on this pop up window.

Also send us the version and SP number of the version of Windows you are using.

You've come to the right place as many of us here have previous experience with older computers such as yours.

Regards,
Worldvet

DVD/CD rom not working


check to see what formats are compatible with your player, next check that youve seated all cables correctly and have the latest drivers installed. also, if this a recently working drive that went bad, the lens may need to be cleaned or it might be dead. If this is a new drive, it may not work with your computer.
