Question about Lenovo 3000 Y410 Notebook

1 Answer

DVD Drive isn't detected.

I can't use my DVD drive because it doesn't appear in the My Computer window. I tried to have it detected in the Device Manager but it didn't work. Is there any solution I could do that doesn't require me to bring it to a service center, as I really can't afford to not use this computer even for a single day due to work concerns. Thanks.

    I did this deleting the filter thing and restarting, but it still didn't fix the problem for me. I still couldn't get the DVD/CD to reappear in my Device Manager - no detection of DVDs or CDs at all.

    Did it work before?

    Is this a USB drive? or is it in the computer itself?

How to recover acer aspire 5738 when screens black


First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

Hello,
I would suggest you check the BIOS if everything is detected properly. Like the hard drive and the memory. If both are working properly and being detected by BIOS properly, then you just might need to install your Windows 7 thru USB. You might need to use a different computer to convert your Win 7 OS DVD to USB installer.
1. Use a different computer w/ DVD 2. Use ISO software to convert the Win7 DVD to ISO 3. Download the converter from this link click here or directly from this link 4. Make sure you have an available USB Flash Disk that has a capacity of 4GB or higher. 5. Once you're done converting the Win7 DVD to an ISO file, use the tool above to convert the ISO file into a USB installer.
This will only work if your hard drive is properly detected. Bootmgr error means 2 things, either the hard drive is not detected or corrupted windows installation.
Hope this helps!

The dvd drive not work model satellite L355-s7902


Check in device manager to see if the computer can detect it or if it shows a yellow ! or ? To get to device manager
  • Right Click on Computer and click Properties
  • Select Device Manager on the left, or in Win Xp click hardware tab and then device manager
If it doesn't show up at all I would say the drive is bad and needs to be replaced. Type your exact model number into ebay plus dvd drive and you should be able to find one cheap.
Let me know what you find out and if you need help replacing the drive, just comment back and I will walk you through it. Usually it will just be held on with one screen located on the back close to the DVD drive door but about 3-4" toward the middle.

CD player will not work


Try a different CD. iIf the computer doesn't recognize it at all, listen for the drive to spin and look for a blinking light on the CD tray. These signs do not necessarily mean the CD drive isn't broken. I would find the model number of your laptop and do a search on eBay for a replacement CD drive. These are very easy to switch out. If the new one works, then you're set. If it doesn't work, there may be an issue with your motherboard.

Windows did'nt find any hard drive


Go to the BIOS configuration and see it the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn,t detect the hard drive then the hard drive coulf be faulty.
Another way to check the hard drive. Remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and then connect this to a computer's USB port. If this computer does not detect it as and external storage device, then the hard drive is faulty.
To get your laptop operational again, insertl a new hard drive and install Windows on this hard drive, together with the laptop's device drivers and your programs.

Dvd/cd-rw drive doesnt appear in my computer


<p>I had the same problem after running the software "SuperISO", this software reset my DVD drive and make it becomes a hard drive instead. Google SuperISO you find more info about it.</p>
<p>Anyway, I have to reinstall window vista, and after boot up, device manager does not know the DVD drive or displays it at all. </p>
<p>Accidentally I resolved this issue a few days latter. One day when the computer is off, I plug in a new device "Optical mouse", and boot up my computer. The program automatic detect a new hardware run and install a necessary driver for a new hardware, after that, it also detect my DVD drive and install the driver for it. </p>
<p>After the computer boot up, I got my DVD drive back and it working fine like before, does not cost me a dime.</p>
<p>In your case, try to plug in any new device and boot up your pc. Good Luck</p>
