Turn the computer over.

Remove the optical-drive security screw.

Insert a scribe into the notch and push it to the side to release the drive from the bay.

Slide the drive out of the bay.

To reinstall the optical drive, slide the drive into the drive bay and snap it into place. Then replace the optical-drive security screw.

My CD rom is not working


No matter what type of laptop you own or how you use it, the CD-ROM or DVD drive is an important part of the unit. With the CD or DVD drive in place, you can play your favorite music or watch your favorite movies, so when that CD or DVD player stops working it is important to get it back in service as soon as possible.

1.Locate the bypass hole on the CD-ROM drive. There is a very small hole, generally located underneath the eject button, on every CD-ROM drive. Unbend a paper clip and insert it into the hole until the CD tray pops out.
2.Remove any CD that is in the tray and replace it with a CD laser lens cleaner. These laser lens cleaners are available at computer shops and electronics retailers.
3.Run the laser lens cleaning program, then try to play a CD again. If that CD fails to play, replace it with another CD and try again.
4.Shut the computer down and remove the AC power cord if cleaning the laser lens does not resolve the issue. Turn the laptop upside down and slide the battery release lever to the unlocked position.
5.Remove the battery and set it aside. Then locate the screws that hold the CD-ROM drive in place and remove those screws. Slide the CD-ROM drive out of the bay, then slide it back into the bay until it snaps securely into place. Replace the screws that hold the drive in place, turn the laptop back on and try to read the CD again.
6.Log on to your computer and right click on the "My Computer" icon. Select "Properties" from the menu and click on the "Hardware" tab. Click the "Device Manager" button and expand the CD-ROM section. Right click on the CD-ROM and choose "Update Driver" from the menu to download and install the latest device driver from the CD-ROM manufacturer.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya

If you look at the door of the CDRom player, you will notice a very small hole. Insert a straightened paperclip into this hole and press. The door should pop open.

My dell inspirion e1705 cd and dvd drive isnt working how can fix it?


there's not much "fixing" that can go into cd drives other than getting a cleaning kit and making sure the lens doesn't have any junk on it. If you clean it and it's still not working, get on Dell's website and order a replacement.

Have an old inspirion e1705 put vista on it cd drive didnt work so put a an one in then starting having problem with vista and now it wont boot from the cd to rebot the computer


You may have to go into the bios and re set the boot order to CD first.
When you first turn on a computer you need to go to setup- usually by hitting delete or f10. Look for anything that says boot drive priority and move cd-rom to the top of the list. Save and exit and this may solve your problem.
Also, if this new drive has malfunctioned in any way the computer will stop trying to boot from it.

Scratchy sound from cd/dvd combo


Hi,
This could be a couple of Things.
First if it,s DVD Player related. it could be that The DVD Player, needs the laser Head Cleaning. Any dust-grease or similar on the Laser head, will cause Distortion. The second option is the DVD Player itself. Some DVDs are removable Drives. with An eject Rom button underneath the Laptop. This will enable you to remove. Check the drives connection Pins At the rear of the Drive. ** Clean with a Bud/Swab moistened in lighter fluid/Meths** replace the Drive.
The other possible problem would be with your Laptops Sound Card/ Board if Fitted.
Finally The problem could be related to a motherboard Fault i.e Bad earth or other internal Component Fault.
Go simplist first ( clean the DVDs Laser Head.
Then Remove the actual DVD Drive if Possible. ** Check Connections At rear** Ensure that the drive has not been dislodged from its connector to laptop mainboard.

Regards And Good-Luck.
