I'm assuming you've tried multiple CD's, DVD's, audio discs, etc with the same results... at this point, you're probably looking at a bad drive (something wrong with the electronics that's telling the computer to "eject" instead of "load") ....however, here's a trick I did once to fix this problem:

Close the CD tray, and just as it's closing, hold on to it and keep it from closing ...again, the drive's probably bad, so you're not going to hurt it...the drive will fight you for a moment, then open back up. Now try closing it again (with the button) and see if it stays this time.

If so, woo-hoo! If not, time to head to the store :)

Hope this helps - remember to rate :)

I need a driver to download free, lg 52x max, I've had my computer formatted and the driver cd was lost, now I cannot save info on cd's because my cd rom is not working. Please help me


Optical drives do not require drivers and Windows XP and higher have built-in CD burning capability (Windows 7 can natively burn DVDs too) so the issue may be a glitch in windows:

if the issue is you want or need CD burning software, then try this:

My e drive which is cd rom drive is not reading any disc i put in it im trying to install microsoft office professional 2007 but it doesnt find the cd what can i do to fix this


One of the possibilities is that laser got dirty which isn't that bad in fact. Get some very strong alcohol on cotton bud and try to clean laser carefully. If you don;t have an easy access to laser you can always try and buy one of them cleaning CD's which actually do good job. You may also want to for loose connection between CD and Motherboard reseat all cables etc.. . Good Luck

When i try to burn a cd using real player it says it cannot detect a cd burner, what can i do to fix it?


Hello there:
What this means is that you do not have a cd burning feature loaded onthe computer
what you can do is to either buy a cd burning suite or you can goto the web and search for free cd buring suites like roxio or somthing similar or you can contact the manufacture of thecomputer andthey may be able to give you a site to download it ok?
I hope that this has been very helpful for you
Best regards michael

Recovery disk


I have recovery CD's for presario 700 series, works for most Compaq laptops and desktops, I can E-mail them to you or if you give me contact info I'll mail them to you.

through e-mail they are sent as an image file and will have to be Burned on cd by cdrw and burning software. So if you prefer the easiest is to just load the cd's i would mail you.

contact info
