It may be worthwhile to take it out and shake it a bit (if anything is jamming it or the motor inside, it would instinctively eject the disk) then putting it back in. I doubt it's a virus, that would be an odd one. Either that or try using system restore to a point before it was a problem. If it doesn't make any sounds (or wierd ones) even spraying compressed air in there may help.
Also, it might help if you ran some diagonistics, usually pressing F12 while your computer has JUST turned on will take you to a menu that will let you select diagnostics. Although I'm unsure if desktop computers are equipped with them. Give it a try.
Hope this helps, stay spicy and happy lappying! :)

Dvd on laptop keeps sticking


What do you mean by sticking? What happens when you play a dvd? Do you mean it keeps stalling and freezing for a while as it buffers more content to show? Do you mean the drawer where you put the dvd into the computer is hard to open?

Dell Inspiron 6000 turns on but does nothing else.


From the description the hard drive has failed or windows has corrupt files. Unplug power supply from laptop and remove main battery, press and hold power for 2 minutes to remove residual voltage. when finished install battery and power supply now power up.

My CD/DVD drive won't read/play DVDs and it won't write DVDs either. It used to do this fine, but it doesn't anymore. It will still play and write CDs, but not DVDs. I have tried EVERYTHING to...


You probably will need to replace the optical drive (CD/DVD drive) in your laptop. Go to Google and search for "Dell Inspirion 6000 CD/DVD drive" to find a replacement.
To be sure it's the CD/DVD drive that's defective and not your operating system software, you could also try to boot from a boot-able DVD disk.

While trying to play a dvd the computer froze.


try shutting the computer down and you'll see a small hole on the dvd drawer front. Take a paper clip and insert in the hole which will open the drawer and allow you to remove the dvd. Then start up your computer normally.

I want to replace the dvd drive in my Inspiron 6000 with a dvd burner. What do you recommend


Search Ebay's site using your Dell 6000 dvd burner in the search window. Lots and lots of dvd rw/cd burners on Ebay. Choose a seller with lots of good feedback and ask the seller if he knows for sure the drive will work in your Dell 6000. Good hunting.

My dvd r/rw drive does not work. it sounds like it is reading cds and dvds but nothing happens.


try to boot from some bootable cd/dvd (eg. windows cd) to check if it isn't software problem, if it won't boot, try to clean laser lens using small paintbrush and little alcohol. If it is only software problem, go to control panel > system > device manager and uninstall all cd drives and restart computer
