On the bottom of the laptop is a label and on this is an imprint called the Service Tag. This tag has alphanumeric format usually seven or eight characters. Would you write that down and then post it as a comment to this post. Thanks. I can then log in as a tech and look up your laptop's configuration as sold.

From what I saw on a cursory look on the Dell web site did not have any data related to a Mitsumi drive. Is there any chance this drive is an after market part?

Beginning with Windows2000, all CD Roms relied on the Windows driver and not a proprietary driver. What you could do is open Control Panel and select Add New Hardware or Find Hardware Changes. As I feel you deleted something in Windows and not a Dell driver itself.

To repair a Windows installation insert your Vista DVD, and bootup from a cold shutdown. As you boot up allow Windows to proceed as if installing itself. Eventually, the installer will notify you that a version of Windows already exists. At this point you are given two options. One is to install a fresh copy of Windows or Two repair the current installation. Choose to Repair the Current installation. Please note that: you will be asked to enter your product key at the end and activate Windows again. So, look at the bottom of your laptop again and the Windows Sticker will be there and carefully write down and review the Product Key; be accurate.

This last procedure will repair anything you damaged by accident and you be done and on your way again.

Disk drive does not recognize or read a disk


you could try removing the drivers from your device manager by going through contol panel or by right-clicking on My Computer and then on the hardware tab. you would find it under cd/dvd rom drives.Just right click and click on uninstall. Then if you dont have your driver disk you might be able to download it from softpedia.com. If you have installed drivers more than once you might be able to roll-back drivers but the best bet would be to just uninstall and re-install the drivers.

Hope this helps

CD/DVD rom drive not working


Hi there.
It sounds like the drivers could be bad or the lens has gone.
This can be a common problem with vista loosing the CD/DVD drives.
Do this >>>>>> right click on "computer" and select "manage" from the sub menu, then select "device manager" from the left hand side, it will generate a list of devices, look down the list for CD/DVD and click on the + icon next to it, from the drop down list right click and uninstall, restart the PC and let vista re-install the drivers for you, then try to use the CD/DVD.
If this does not work please post back.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Cd/dvd rom not working


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 :(

DVD R/W is not getting detected on my laptop


try to run a repair on your OS. What happened there was that your virtual cd software replaced some default drivers from the OS.


Hope this helps.
