Question about HP Desktop Computers - Hewlett-Packard 3.0GHz Intel Celeron D 160GB Desktop Computer with DVD+/-R/RW/CD... (A1110NPX743AA)
I have Dell Inspiron 5100. It has DVD/CDRW combo drive. It reads all DVDs. It does not recognizes any CD (data or music). It was working before. I have windows XP SP3 OS. Any suggestion.
Looks like the drive was a lemon. The laser lens used to read cd's and dvd's are seprate and seems loke the one for cd is gone bad. if your pc is in warrenty cal the manufacturer and have them replace it. if not in warrenty open the chassie see if the drive is connected with a wide ribbon cable(ata) or a two pair green or blue wire(sata). depending on that get a new one from radioshack or something.
I hope it helps!!
