L305D-S5930 dvd wont burn documents to a dvd disc


You need a program, like nero.
if that doesn't work then put a DVD in the drive & see if the computer picks it up in the my computer.
the first thing that goes in a CD/DVD-RW drive is the DVD heads, thats if your drive is a CD/DVD-RW.
Have a look on the front of the drive tray, if it say CD-RW DVD ROM then it doesn't burn DVD's it only plays them.

MY , CD/DVD LAPTOP DRIVER DOESN'T WORK. IT CAN


goto run and type "compmgmt.msc"(without quotes) and select disc management if the dvd drive is showing below the hard disks means your dvd drive is working fine only thing you have to do is to right click on the CD-Rom 0 and change drive letter and paths to it
.if the CD ROM option is not seen in disk management then you have to go to the device manager option under computer management and expand cd/dvd -rom drives and you will find your dvd drive model if not that means that your dvd drive has got hardware problem

How can i reformat my packard bell laptop without the recovery cd?


The recovery cd is just a Pre-Built Windows version that includes the drivers you need for your computer.
If you want to format your pc and lack the original recovery cd, you just need to get a Windows (or other operating system you want) installation CD/DVD, put it on your optical drive and reboot your computer.
On installation, you will be asked what you want to do: Fix or Install. Choose install and check to format your disk.
After installation, if something doesn't work, its because you don't have the needed drivers, so go to Dell's Support Page find your computer, download and install the drivers you are lacking (video card graphics, sound, etc.)
Hope it was helpful ;)

Have re-installed win xp on an IBM T42 laptop, but can not access the internet to update drivers ect


1. if you have wireless, purchase or borrow an add on usb wireless stick. this will allow you to access the internet and add in your missing drivers. 2. or add in a pci card that has ethernet connection to get your drivers. 3. use someone elses computer and download the drivers from the IBM site, put them on a usb stick and then apply them to your unit, (ie more the ethernet driver as a primary and then you can download the remaining ones as you go after it is working. hope this helps.

Dvd/cd-rom not working


From the desktop, right click on My Computer and select Properties. In the System Properties, browse to the Hardware tab and select Device Manager.

In there, expand DVD/CD-ROM Drives and right click on the appropriate hardware and select Uninstall. Click on OK when prompted.

Reboot the computer. After entering the desktop environment, the computer should start installing the drivers for the DVD/CD-ROM automatically (after startup applications are registered).


Hope this helps :) Kindly leave a rating. Thanks..
