Question about Garmin nuvi 250W GPS Receiver

Dell Inspiron E1505 CD/DVD Drive does not work!

I had tried to make a copy to a blank DVD. While it was running, the laptop slipped off my lap....as I reached to grab it I heard a 'Whirring" sound from the DVD recorder.

Now when I load a CD/DVD I hear the motor running, I see the disc spin, but after a few seconds...it will just stop!

Did I break this thing?

This is not good..
there is no point it trying to talk you through what it might or could be wrong with it.your best bet is to get some one to look at it for you.
mind you it sounds like the laser lens can not read the cd or dvd that you put in.
something has come lose or moved inside.

0F00:136C IDE device failed:blank media or no media is present in optical drive


read failure of the CD\DVD drive. If you were running diagnostics and have no readable media in the drive, that is a NORMAL result.
If you have readable media in the drive, try reseating the drive and try to read again. If the media is not a factory burned CD, try a factory burned one.
See if you can boot to an Windows CD.
If all the above fail, then likely a drive failure, replace the drive

My cd/dvd driver wont read any disc?


First clean the CD/DVD head by cd/dvd cleaner. If that doesnt work then probably you will need to get its read write head aligned or get the drive changed totally.

CD/DVD drive doesn't work


try removing the drive from the laptop, then go into the device menu and delete the drive. Restart. Shutdown again and insert the drive, restart - it should show a "new device" recognized. If it doesn't, the drive may just have failed. I've had it happen to a dell drive - it just doesn't see the drive at all.

Cd rom problem


Try to play different cds from your dvd rom drive.
If all of them does play then i suspected the cd that you had inserted to play is faulty.

If all of the cds doesn't work, re-install your dvd rom driver. If it doesn't still read any cds then your dvd rom drive is faulty.

Note: If machine is under warranty no need to pay for the repairs.

My dell inspron e1505 dvd/cd drive does not work would like to replace it. it says model TS-L632D/Dekh


Here is an auction on ebay for the item you're looking for (it says that the drive works in the e1505, you may want to verify that with the seller).

This is a youtube video detailing how to swap out the drive.

Good luck!

Blank screen when powered on.


Do you have any CD’s that came with your laptop? If so, look for one that has “Diagnostics and utilities” listed under the “Contents”. To boot from that CD disk, power on your laptop and tap the <F12> key to bring you to the “One time boot menu”. Insert the CD and then select CD/DVD drive and hit <Enter> key. You can also boot from the Windows reinstallation disk. If the computer boots from either CD, then your Operating System is corrupted and needs to be reloaded.

Cd drive skipping


hey,
i have inspiron 6400 myself, with vista home edition installed.

your e1505 is the new version of my dell

spec and review here on e1505 http://blog.miguelovitch.dk/2007/12/18/dell-inspiron-e1505-replace-6400/

I can watch movies both online and 'offline'. DVDs, mpeg, avi, and wmv format and more.

I think you have some problems with your media player or codec.

Are you using xp or vista?

/michael

why pay for software?
