    Can you give us more detail? What OS are you using, how are you sure it is the driver, what computer is it or is it a third party CD driver?

    Driver or Drive?  One is software, other is hardware.

I recently lost my CD/DVD drive when I (correctly) uninstalled a Roxio application from my Toshiba laptop. After a week of frustration, I finally found the fix. My CD/DVD drive is back!

Go to the Windows START menu.
Click on RUN and enter: regedit

FOLLOW THIS TREE:
Registry Key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class

In the CLASS folder, look for:
Key Name: {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}


Value Data: [Delete All Value Data from UpperFilters and LowerFilters] You will see the upper and lower filters folders once you get to the end of the tree… *\*\*\control\class
If a backup folder for either the upper or lower filter folders shows up, clear all the data from these folders as well.

Note: Do not delete the Key or the Multi-String Values. Delete only the data values.
Exit Registry and Reboot

My Asus x7sa-ds51 laptop will not regonize a card reader I inserted into the usb port


Make sure all the USB ports are enabled. Make sure all the USB ports are free of debris (use duster). If the USB ports work with other devices, then I'm thinking that it a software problem; Is the card reader plug and play, or does it require drivers? Is the device compatible with your OS? And make sure everything is up to date.

Problem with the Dell Inspiron 1720 Laptop Computer DVD Drive Locked to Regon 1 & i live in Regon 4


To changethe Region code on your DVD player, open Control Panel - System - Hardware -Device manager, and click on DVD/CD ROM drives, then right click on the DVDdrive and click Properties then click on DVD Region.
You can enter a new region and it also shows you how many changes have beenmade.
NOTE you can make only 4 changes and the player will lock permanently on the4th change.
If you want to play DVDs from any region you maybe able to upgrade the firmwareto make it region free BUT if you make a mistake or installed the wrongfirmware the player will be a piece of junk.
The best solution to make the player region free is to install a piece ofsoftware that allows you to play DVDs from any region. There are severalavailable on the Internet but my favourite is DVD-Region Free From: -

Dell Won't Regonize New Dell Battery


Hi
Need more info

We are talking about the main battery / not cmos battery?
Does charger lamp illuminate?
If so ensure plugs are securely pressed in to Laptop and charger.
If charger lamp does NOT light up try a different wall plug.
Surely Dell would have tested that battery and charging before returning.

My laptop doasn't regonize my tv when i connect it


I would suggest that you should reduce the screen resolution of your laptop to something like 800 by 600 pixels, then try to reconnect it.
This is because there are some TVs that can not display the resolution provided by some high-end laptop graphics card, and I have actually experienced a case like this before.
So just try and check some lower resolutions on the laptop to connect it to your TV.
Hope it helps you out.
Goodluck!
