Hello and Welcome to Fixya.

Seems like you're having a software issue that prevents your system to read/run a disc when inside the operating system. I have included the official fix from Microsoft:

DVD Drive Troubleshooting

All you have to do is to click on "Run Now" and follow the on screen prompts - just remember to eject any CD that you may have inside the drive.

Please note that if this does not work, then the drive needs to be replaced. You may contact dell in case that happens.

Hope this helps and Thanks for using FixYa.

My dell labtop only shows a black screen when its turned on and says to install diagnostic and utility partition how do i do this it use to work right


Its telling you that because it cannot detect your Hard Drive. Make sure you re-fix it tightly into its slot, and if it still brings the same;
>Try to Check Your Disk for so as to repair and restore it (Use an installation CD or any DOS propmt CD)
>If this happens still, maybe your disk is damaged and may need replacement

The cd/dvd drive installed in my laptop does not work.


Please read this post.
http://www.fixya.com/support/t3185554-m_using_lenovo_y500_laptop_hitachi_ht

it has the same cd drive which you are talking about. the problem is only with the drive. they also do not provide any firmware to update it. there is no filters problem. the problem is mechanical which is something you cant fix. these are chinese made drives, just use and throw. so, its now time to throw. there is no point banging your head, becasue i already banged a lot for this issue, and please dont replace your drive with sony optirac, it will also give you the same problem. all the best.
the drive which you talked about is the same i had originally on my computer. i also tried myself to update the firmware of the drive but no go. it still did not work. so i checked the functionality of the dvd drive. what is the technology of dvd drive and i found there are 2 lenses in the drive to read cd and dvd. if one fails it will read only 1 type of cd or dvd then. presently my computer has 33rd optical drive which is again matishta. it is still working, i dont know how long will it work. but touchwood its working now. so all i can say after such a bad experience is that its just a luck. regarding which optical drive to get now? you can get any one. its just the name, technology remains the same. like a lot of different people. but blood remains the same. so name doesnot matter. But i strongly say drives with SONY OPTIRAC are the worst drive, Never buy that. other than that you can get anyone. hardly matters.

DVD Ram drive


This could be several causes. is it a dvd Rom Drive ??
first this could be software related. i.e which program is stating that it,s a blank cd ( windows or another program ? ) i.e nero or similar ?
try uninstalling the device ( DVD ) in control panel/system/device mansger. re-boot the computer and it should state. new device/harware found and ask for a driver.
If this does,nt work theres a chance that if you are using packet writing software, the disks are not finalising, hence they will not be recognised, as the T.O.C table of contents are not being written to the disk ( Finalizing )
Finally the read laser could be out of alignment or not powering up suffiently to read, other formats.
Hope this guides you to some success.
