SOURCE: dwq 58a not recognizing blank media

your DVD ROM lens has became weak.
and it cannot be repaired.
But if you manage to open the DVD ROM clean the dust in it & it will start working again but be careful remember that no power should be attached to ROM.
or you can buy a lens cleaner from market and try that.
pls rate my solution
thankyou

My DVD rw (DW-Q58A) in VGN FS42w won't read CD (both music and data) although it plays DVD video and recognizes blank DVD-R.


It happens if the lens becomes weak. I advice you get an external DVD-RW.
I hope you find this solution is helpful.

I crashed my Dell Inspirion B130 and used Windows XP CD to restore it. Now all the configurations and files are gone, the screen doesn't look the same and the modem, speakers, ethernet controller, etc are...


I'm affraid you just installed a clean XP on your laptop which would mean that all data has been lost (you probably formatted the hdd at some point).

Such data could be recovered, but it takes quite a lot of work and a pro to do it.

Dell b130 internal system restoration failed


Incase you don't have any thing important on the computer try a factory restore. This will wipe out everthing and make the cmputer like new. To start it power off the laptop. Power it on and hold down ctrl and tap f11 severl times at the Dell logo screen. Try this q couple of times as it may not work the first time. If this does nothing you'll need the os cd (xp cd) tO repair or reinstall windows.

DVD Drive problem


Hello,

There maybe a problem with a ribbon like cable that connects your drive to the mainboard. In order to be sure if there is a hardware problem, try to boot your laptop using a bootable cd. If this works and you can read files from the cd then it maybe a windows instalation or driver problem. My best guess is however a hardware problem related to that specific cable or connector. You should try to check these if possible. If your laptop is still in warranty send it to a service center for in-warranty repairs. Otherwise I may help you on how to dissasemble it or how to check that connector.

Hope it helps,
Bogdan
