Sounds like your CD/DVD drive may have quit. Taking your laptop apart to replace it can be a challenge. I would try an external USB drive.

When i turn on my lenovo 5000 y500 laptop very slow booting takes place


There are so many reasons can cause a Lenovo computer running slow at boot up, it is hard to identify just what might be dragging down your Lenovo's performance, let alone implement the necessary technical adjustments to fix it.

So if you want to address the issues more easily, I'll recommend you try a Lenovo speed up software, available here: http://www.speeduplenovo.com/

Hi!! I have a Dell Vostro 1310 with Windows 7 Ultimate installed and I was burning a DVD with Nero Express when it suddenly froze. I restarted the computer and when I put a DVD back into it, it doesn't...


It is probably a nero quirk. You will not be able to read the disk you were writing as there will be no table of contents written to it which is [ossibly why it failed.
Re install Nero or load the latest updates before trying again.

My computer quite reading dvds and cds


There may be a hardware issue with your drive. However, it can also get dirty after use and just sitting there. You can buy a drive cleaner at almost any electronics retailer, and they are fairly inexpensive. If this doesn't work, you are probably in the market for a new drive.

My camera is not working


since you have formatted your laptop you have erased all the drivers especially the camera driver for your laptop you will need to get a new driver for the camera but if you laptop came with a disc you will need to check if the drivers are available in the disc.

No audio


Hello Jatin09,

Let's start by removing all of the other audio drivers. After, reboot your laptop and install only the audio driver from the cd. After doing so, if the problem continues, then you may want to try repairing your windows system files - given that you have the installation cd that came with your laptop.

Hope this answers your question and that it helps.

Thank you
