Question about Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook
The cdrom is recognised but not spinning
If you know how to enter into your POST level setup you can check to see if the cd rom is being recognized properly by the cmos. It is not uncommon for the operating system to indicate that it "sees" a CD rom especially if it worked in the past.
Another check is to go to Control Panel, System and then to Device Manager tab. Check to see if there is a CD rom identified or if a yellow exclamation is present beside the CD rom. If entirely absent or a yellow excalm is present then you may have a driver problem.
If this is under 1 year old. Contact the manufacturer for advice or an RMA.
