First thing you need to check is whether the issue happens only if you are logged in to Windows or not. For you to check if it also happens outside of Windows, insert the Windows Operating System disk (XP or Vista) then shutdown the computer. Turn it back on. As soon as you see the Dell Logo, keep on pressing F12. Then select "CD/DVD ROM" from the choices and press enter. When you see the prompt "Press any key to boot from the CD", keep on tapping the "Enter" key. If your CD/DVD drive is working fine, you should see a page that'd say "Windows is loading files". If not then the system is not detecting your drive. Then check the BIOS page. F2 on the Dell Logo. Then look for Drive Configuration. If the drive isn't there, reseat it. Physically remove the drive from the computer and put it back in. Then restart.

Please rate this if it helped.

DVD appears as CD Drive


If you are using Windows XP, it cannot burn DVD's without a third-party program (e.g. Sonic, Ulead, Roxio, Nero, etc.)

Dell inspiron 1300 does not switch on


try unseating and reseating the memory one stick at a time in each slot one at a time and try turning on the laptop after each stick reinsertion.

If this doesn't do it then take out the hard drive and dvd drive then turn on ht laptop.

If after all of these steps you still don't get video then the motherboard is bad.
