    My Aspire 5315-2077 is having the same problem w/ the DVD/CD rom. It isn't recognizing the cd's when inserted. The light blinks but it won't read any of them. I checked the MY Computer and it isn't recognizing the CD rom there either. I already restored it to an earlier date but now it's gone AGAIN. What do I need to do in order to find the CD rom again?

Dvd writer not recognising any disc.just says insert disc


Make sure it has power (ejects). Check Device Manager in Safe Mode by pressing F8 during boot. Right click My Computer > Manage. Select Device Manager > View > Show Hidden Devices. Now delete all DVD/CD-ROMs and reboot. Windows will say "New Hardware Found" and install. Check BIOS by pressing F key (correct F key is noted during boot) and make sure BIOS see's the Optical Drive.

Windows 7 laptop won't boot to OS , only has a black screen with a blinking cursor


Insert your system recovery disc to repair your startup.

1. Change your Bios to boot from disc:
When your computer powers on, hit F2 (on some computers, F8 on others). Use your arrow keys and move to the right to your BOOT option. Hit the down arrow until you select your CD/DVD drive. Look at the bottom of your screen, and it should say to change the option hit F7 or F8. Use the specified keys, and move your CD/DVD drive above your hard-drive. Save your settings.

2. Boot from your disc. Insert your system recovery disc and restart your computer. Let the recovery disc load. If the option comes up to hit any button to boot from CD/DVD, then hit any button. Once it loads, it should come to a spot where it wants your language. Select your language, then select the option "Startup Repair". Click on it, and let it repair the startup. If it automatically starts correcting your startup then great! If not, then select your operating system from the list and click the Repair Startup option. Restart your computer, and hopefully it will boot from your hard-drive correctly.

Hope this works.

P.S. If it continues to boot from your recovery disc, then using the same method in step 1, go to your bios, and move your CD/DVD drive below your hard-drive.

Hi. Check the transport mechanism of the laser head. The transport can get stuck with dust, hair or vibration. If the transport is stuck, the drive still appear but can't read the CD because the lens is not moving properly.

Clean the area around the lens with cotton buds (be careful not to scratch the lens). Move the lens mechanism away from the center (use a plastic paper clip, slide gently). Place a DVD/CD disc and reboot your laptop. The DVD will auto align the drive during boot-up.

Good luck.

What is boot device?


Boot Device pertains to your hard disk that is installed in your laptop where the Operating System is installed in order for it to run. If an operating system is not installed, it will require the installation CD/DVD disc where it will boot alternately until its installed.

There are certain issues that the system does not boot on the hard whenever the settings is primarily set to boot to a USB or CD/DVD device initially wherein either a USB drive is attached or a CD/DVD disc is inserted.

When you restart your computer, is there an option to "change boot order", to choose the CD/DVD drive as the boot-device?
If so, insert your Microsoft Windows DVD into the drive,
and restart your computer, and select the DVD-drive as the boot device. Does it read the disk, and boot into the Windows Installer?
If so, then the hardware is OK, and you have some sort of "software" problem, rather than having a "hardware" problem.

How do i reset my laptop to factory state


It depends on your brand of computer. Every brand has its own factory reset, but generally, if you have a recovery disc (Operating System Disc), insert it. Then shut down the unit. Turn it on and press F12 repeatedly. Boot device menu appears, select CD/DVD ROM. Then press any key to boot from CD. Then select English, and then select Partition 0 so that it will install the fresh copy of the software....

We are going to do this the easy way....you need a computer of course and one that has a working cd/dvd player, a flash drive and a windows installation disc. A recovery disc will not work...you need a windows installation disc.

Go to the control panel > folder options > click on the "View" tab, scroll down and UN-check the box the says "hide protected operating system files", now click the bubble above that says "Show hidden files and folders.
Now get out of the control panel and insert the windows disc in the drive.

Go ahead and insert the flash drive into a usb port and let windows recognize the device and load it. It will give the device a drive letter.

After the disc loads, it may appear on your desktop and say to install Windows....just exit the program but don't eject the disc. Open "My Computer" and look for your cd/dvd drive and right click on it. Choose "open" from the choices and a list of files and folders will appear. Select all the files except for a file that says "desktop

Copy all the files and paste them into the flash drive that you can find in "My Computer" The files from the disc will now be written to the flash drive. Once the copy is completed, the flash drive can now be used to boot the computer.

Insert the usb drive into the laptop that needs fixing and power it up. After the flash screen appears, tap the F12 key to bring up the multi-boot options. Choose USB drive and hit enter. The laptop will boot off the usb drive and initiate the Windows files.

How to restore the laptop to factory setting by cd


It still sounds as though you aren't getting it to boot proper... You have to make sure the CD/DVD is set to be the ONLY boot device, it MUST be the first one... when it starts, immediately tap the enter key and make it boot from DVD/CD... If it still won't then either your disc is suspect or your CD/DVD is faulty.

Cannot open DVD disc


Brain,
Is your drive supports DVD? Try to put a CD disc and see its reading or not. If this problem occurs for both CD's and DVD's discs then you might have problem in your drive lense. and if it only reads CD then your drive might not be supported for DVD's.

try to clean your drive lense using CD head cleaner, it might solve your problem, other than you have to replace your drive.

Thanks
