My computer won't read disks

My computer seems to be fine, but it doesn't read any CD that I put into the CPU. At first I thought that may be the lens needed to be cleaned, but I worry that it could be much worse than that.

Xp booting loop bios


Seems to be a bad driver or damaged boot.
If the computer shuts down and restarts check CPU fan and blow dust out from heat sink, CPU may be overheating.
Otherwise, use the recovery disk to repair, or the installation CD and do the system repair. Or from repair disk, if your computer worked fine before, Restore To a Previous setting.

How can I get my dvd to copy videos when it reads, No Disk? when there's a disk in the player?


hi, possible problem with the dvd, the lens doesn't read the disc or the spindle motor not rotating that is why can not read a disc. try to clean first with a cd lens cleaner, just insert a cleaner to the player to remove dirt and might the lens get sticky. now if still doesn't work, you will need to remove the cover of the player to access the internal part. check for broken part or any obstacle that can block the rotation of the spindle motor.if the motor doesn't rotate anymore you can check the resistance if still there using an analog tester. if no resistance at the pin terminal of the motor, the coil was worn out then you will need to replace the motor.

My computer is slow and the is not reading or burning CD/DVD


Slow computer problem would be different then that non reading disks. Slow computer could happen in many cases, a virus is taking up all the memory, or defragmented hard disk, programs that required more memory and cpu speed. CD, DVD could fail to read due to loose cable, BIOS setup or damaged drive.

My motherboard will not bout from the HD it will only bout from the CD. I had to use another computer to instill windows. Then when i put the HD back in the Compaq it still wont pick up the HD. help what...


It might well be the cable from the motherboard to the drive.

The fact that you can read the drive in another computer suggests that the drive itself is fine.

It would also suggest that the controller is also fine.

Double check the jumpers on the drive and the cable.

If you made any changes to the BIOS also check that area.

My ps3 wont read the gaming discs


and of course you tried those discs on another ps3 unit and they worked fine right?

you know that Blu-Ray lens in PS3's, they die too quickly. Try a CD Lens cleaner first, if that doesn't fix it, go for warranty - contact manufacturer.

CD drive does not read all disks


You might try going to the website of the printer's manufacturer. They may have drivers online that you can download, which will bypass the issue you are currently having. If this is not the case, you might see if the manufacturer of the cd drive has updated software for the drive. Maybe this is a known issue to them. Good luck.

My e drive wont start up any product


When you are refering to the E drive, do you mean your dvd/cd drive?. If so 2 things to try, first a lens cleaning cd rom, secondly if still no nada, go to my computer, right click, down to properties>Hardware>Device manager. Click the '+' sign on DVD/CDROM Drives and highlight your drive and right click then Delete. Re-boot you PC and let windows find your drive again automatically, then try playing something again. If still nothing it's time to replace the drive, they are very cheap nowadays.
