Re: wont auto play any disc
First off thanks for choosing fixya.com
It could be that "autoplay" has been disabled. Here are some steps to enable autoplay.
Double click on the My Computer icon on your Desktop until it opens.
Then gently click on your CD / DVD Rom Drive just until it becomes highlighted.
Then click on the word File, which is contained in your top tool bar area.
This will pull down a menu for you to now click on Properties.
Then click on the Auto Play tab at the top of the screen.
You can adjust settings for Music CDs, Music Files, Pictures, Video Files and Mixed Content.
Now select a multimedia types by using the pull down arrow to the right with your mouse.
Then for each multimedia type, use your mouse to encircle the Select an action to perform: option.
To disable that multimedia type, click on the Take no action icon at the bottom of the screen.
Now click on the Apply button at the bottom of the screen to save your changes.
Continue in the above fashion for each multimedia type, choosing the Take no action option.
And ensure that you click on the Apply button at the bottom of the screen to save your changes.
Once all options have been set, then click on OK button to exit the CD Drive Properties window.
Repeat the above procedure on any additional CD Rom Drives you have in your system.
Note: If you feel you have made a mistake, you can click on the Restore Defaults icon at any time.
You can also double click "My Computer" then click the drive letter the cd/dvd is in. If nothing still happens it may be a failing or broken cd/dvd drive. Ensure that the cd's are clean and free of any major scratches.

usually operating system auto install the driver becoz these days disc drive are plug and play system. 1.laser pickup or chip has been faulty.. please replace new drive rather than repairing it coz the cost might end up same as you buy new one..
just looking at the specifications, it should work with All CD's and Read Normal DVD discs, the movies that you can rent and buy from any store but it appears its a combo drive (Cd burner, and a DvD reader) It will only read DVD-rom and maybe few other things but it wont play any r or rw dvd's. It might also read already burned dvd r and rw discs but it wont read a empty one.
if it won't read any dvd's it could be a dirty lens. here's a video on the cleaning, its annoyingly loud but shows how to clean the lens with rubbing alcohol.
may want to turn the volume down in advance:
its for a ps2 but the drive is basically the same, and you would clean the lens in the same way.
Normally the battery light will rapidly flash orange if the battery is defective. It will alternate between orange and green if it is too hot to charge. Or it will either flash orange or be a steady orange if the battery is low or completely discharged. Based on this and the fact that you cannot get it to stay on for more than 7 seconds, I would have to say that you need to recharge the battery by plugging the laptop into an AC outlet. After all, it can't run without the juice.
