Lol. not too much info to go on there....

1) is the disk disgustingly filthy?

2) is the drive clogged with a pb&j sandwich?

3) is it a dvd drive...probably is.

4) double check that the computer can read other disks besides that one, and if not there may be a more serious problem.


try running a disk cleaner in the drive, its a cd with a little brush on it for sweeping dust off the lens

buy a 3-4 dollar can of compressed air and spray a bit of that inside to clean out the dust and stuff, MAKING SURE TO FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY as cans of compressed air can mess stuff up real easily if used wrong.

good luck!

Can't eject dvd from dell xps 27

I had this problem, talked to a Dell support person for two hours with no success. Went to bed, next morning, I powered the desktop off (not restart) with the power button. The first time, the DVD drive cranked up but didn't eject the disk. The second time I powered it off and then on again, the DVD drive ejected the disk.

I have a Dell Inspiron XPS M140 PC Notebook on which I'm trying to load Microsoft Office for Home and Business 2010, and I can't figure out why the installation DVD can't be read. I was only going to load...


Do any other DVD discs work with the laptop? Lets start from there.

do you get a error message or something on the screen when you try to insert the disc or run the setup?

My daughter put two cd in my dell xps m1530.any idea how to get them out

Please try the following:
On your dvd drive there is a very small pinhole. Get a paperclip and try to push it through. This pinhole is used for emergencies where the dvd drive does not eject.
Other thing you can do, is to turn your laptop upside down and remove the dvd rom drive from your laptop. Then unscrew the dvd drive to get the cds out.

Dell xps 1330 is not getting booted, when run the diagnostics got Error 2000-0146. After restart with repair got blue screen with error STOP: c000135, Please help me to resolve this issue.

Resolution is simple enough. 2000-0146 is a read-write failure of the hard disk drive. You will need to replace the drive and reinstall Windows and your drivers. You can get a Replacement HDD here is the system is no longer in warranty:

My xps dell notebook is not running my dvd i put it in, then the cursor (mouse) has a cd symbol and then goes away thats it i tried re runnign it but it does not work.

Check the dvd it may be scratched. If that is not the problem then try running a dvd cleaner in the drive to see if cleaning restores disc reading. Hope this helps.
