  1. Click on the start menu.
  2. If this is a Vista machine in the search box type in “regedit” without the quotation marks.
  3. Maximize the HKLM and then go ahead and browse until you reach the key listed above.
  4. In the right panel you’ll see something along the lines of “UpperFilter” and “LowerFilter” you want to click on each “filter” key and hit delete. Click yes when it asks to confirm if you wish to delete the key.
  5. Restart Windows.
  6. Let me know if this works.

When i insert DVD in DVD drive...it shows only 0 byte space..when i open it, it shows blank.. why? any solution..


First try this:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318

Delete the upper and lower filters.

Then, go to device manager uninstall the DVD device driver. Reboot the computer. Wait until the computer automatically detects the DVD device icon. If not then download the DVD device icon from Dell Support website drivers and downloads.

If all files replace the DVD drive.

Hope this helps.

My cd/dvd rom do not play when i i insert cd.what can i do?


Try navigating to Start Button/ My Computer/, then Double-click the CD or DVD drive. If no CD or DVD drive shows up in My Computer, there is a problem with the drive. if no disc shows up in the Drive, it is a problem with reading the media.

Dvd rom, acer aspire 4720z not working.


probably it is something mechanical with it if it not rejecting it but from that pin hole ...get it out by removing the screw in the back on its level...one or 2 depend on the model ..after this just open the tray and jiggle i gently and it come out from the plug ..and look to see if it has all stuff in place ..and if it can not be repaired just replace it ..
Also you can try a bootable disk to see if it is not a driver issue from a bug ..and try to boot from it into windows or so

The DVD/+ of My Acer just stopped working


Sounds like the data connection to the drive has been lost. The power connection is still present, though. i would try to remove the drive, and with a light try to look at the connectors on the inside of the computer and also at the back of the drive. If nothing is obviously wrong, blow the area out with air and plug it back in. If this doesn't fix it, start looking for a new DVD drive for the computer. Good luck!

My dvd rom does not show up in" my computer". i cannot play any dvd or cd. my driver agent says that HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-T40N ATA DEVICE is disconnected.


Best thing to try, take out the dvd drive completely from the laptop. Then go ahead and reseat the drive back into its slot and put the screw back into place. Do all of this while the laptop is turned off.


Now go ahead and turn the laptop back on and go into the bios. Once in there it should show you the dvd drive, if it does show it to you then reboot into windows and then the drive should show up into my computer and you should be able to play dvd and cd's again.

If your drive doesn't show up in the BIOS then reset defaults and then reboot the laptop back into windows. If it still doesn't show up in there then you have a bad dvd drive.

Laptop not show cd or dvd when i put it


Well, for starters, is your cd/dvd turned on in the bios.  Some but not all computer have a setting for this.  If your cd/dvd drive is removable, shut down the computer, remove the drive.  Reboot the computer and shut it down again.  Then reconnect the drive and start the computer back up.  This will make sure that if your drive is working, windows will redetect it.  You can check device manager to make sure it is not disabled.  If none of this works, you may have a bad drive.  If you really must reinstall windows, you can get an external cd/dvd drive pretty cheap on Ebay.  Just make sure you go into your BIOS setting and change the boot menu to external drive.  I hope this information helps.

My hard drive


More than likely the drive has stopped functioning; you can try updating the firmware for the combo drive with a patch from the Compaq website; here is a matrix for the 700 Series Notebooks.
