THE DVD READER NOT WORKING

When I put a disc in the DVD drive it shows that it is working, but nothing comes up on the screen. My computer is only two years old and came with an internal DVD-Drive. I have tried to find a program via the internet to repair ?? the drive and all I get back is programs I have to downland and pay for. I don't mind paying for a program if that is what is required but would like to make sure that is what is needed.
Thanks

Remove the dvd from the machine completely and boot the machine so it thinks there is no dvd installed, boot into windows and let it boot all the drivers etc, after this shut the machine down and put the dvd back in and reboot, if you are using vista try put the machine to sleep then wake up again usinig the on/off button. hopefully this will sort the problem out

good luck

My acer5755-6482 - I insert cd or dvd and it begins to run but nothing comes up on the screen.


Hello,

Have you tried a different DVD? Try a known good DVD because it might be that the disc has a problem with it. if a known good DVD or disc doesn't work, then the DVD player has a problem with it. You can also check if the drive is still detected by your computer by clicking on "Computer" or :"My computer" . Look for the drive of the DVD. If it's not there, then it's already has a problem.

Update me after doing my suggestions.

Can't play blu rays


Your HP computer should come with Quickplay, open the program, click on DVD, on the upper right hand corner on the left side of the rectangular box there should be an icon that looks like a wheel or a gear, click on that and click on Updates, should solve your problem.

CD/DVD drive does not show up in My Computer and will not play or burn any discs. In Device Manager it says 'This device is working properly' but it is not. Have tried uninstalling and updating drivers...


Roght click My Computer, choose Manage, and go to Disk Management.
Look there if the drive has a proper drive letter assigned, and change it to some other letter (like V for example). This may help.

PC do not recognize DVD drive and do not show it on screen anymor


It is probably a hardware problem but I would go into the BIOS screen which it gives you instructions when your first booting up on how to do this. One inside the bios screen, which is usually blue, find a list of what hardwares are pre programmed in, maybe under drive managment. Almost all computers have different wordings. See if it listed amogst your hardware, if it is, it may be turned off some how, see if you can turn it back on.

Laptop trouble


There is a problem with your DVD drive, then. I think it is unable to detect because there is dirt on the delicate little lens or some other problem.

Clean the lens with a cheaply available lens cleaning disc a special anti-static cloth made for these purposes.

Or see if the PC itself detects the drive. If it doesn't, restore the system to the time when it was all okay. Use System Restore.

If nothing works, show it to a doctor, and maybe you have to change it.
