Try reseating the CD drive. Remove the battery and make sure the AC adaptor is not connected. Turn the laptop over and locate the locking screw. It will have a little "Pad Lock" symbol next to the screw. Once phillips screw is removed, pry the securing screw tab to push the drive from the chassis with a screwdriver. Re-insert the CD drive and fasten the screw back into the bottom of the laptop.

If you still have an issue with the CD drive, please feel free to contact me for futher diagnosis.

Dell inspiron 1501 work fine turn off last night now wont turn on


You mentioned trying a different battery, try a different AC adapter.

When plugging in the ac adapter to the wall, see if the POWER LED comes on on the adapter, then when you connect it to the computer, see if the LED stays on.

If the issue occurs with both AC adapters (No battery installed) then the motherboard has failed. If one ac adapter works but the other doesn't then the adapter is bad

go into device manager and see if your drive is listed or has an exclamation point beside it.if you dont know how to open device manger go to start menu and click help and search device manager.if there is an exclamation point ! click it and it will tell you the problem.you may need to download a new driver or reinstall the old driver. the only other possibility is the drive is dead :(

Hi,
Try going to the drive, in my computer ** should be named CD/DVD Or D: E: right click and press eject. Alternatively:-
if you look carefully at the dvd drive, it has a small pinhole in the front drawer. push a paper-clip sized piece of metal, or small jewellers screwdriver into the hole, this will force the drawer open.
