If the boot priority in the BIOS setup screen is set to thr CD it  will open the cd door every time you boot looking for the BOOT cd.    It will not accept anything else, at that point except a boot cd since it hasn't found the operating system (windows) yet.    By "blue laptop" you mean "blue screen" DO a "Windows restore" or reinstall windows from the reinstall cd or Harddrive partision containing the restore files.

How do i open a disk drive to a acer aspire e touch


well it sounds to me like you are just trying to open the drive to insert a disk ? go to "computer" or "my computer" on the desktop, double click to open. you should see your hard drive "c" and cd/dvd drive "d" listed. right click the "d" drive, left click eject, voila. if you have more than one hard drive or a partitioned drive there might well be more drive letters but your cd/dvd drive will be marked as such. alternatively click "start", bottom left of desktop, click "computer" and once again you should see your drives listed. physically there should be , on the cd/dvd drive drawer itself a small button, push it once to open. failing all else, there should be a very small hole in the drive drawer, using say a paper clip or similar, insert into the small hole and push reasonably firmly, this should release the drawer manually and the drive will open. hope that helps. good luck.

My DVD/CD-RW drive isn't recognized/ doesn't play disks.


It may be bad. Has the laptop been damaged? Dropped? Open Device Manager, DVD/CD Rom drives, is it listed? In Start Menu, Computer, Is it listed? Try re installing the DVD rom driver, the MS Vista 32bit drivers can be found here: http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/04/Product/vostro-a860

Dvd keeps saying insert a disc


Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll down cd-dvd rom drives you might see a yellow question /exclamation mark ? ! or a red X right click to update driver You might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd/dvd computer then plug them back in restart your this should activate the found new hardware wizard. If this does not fix the problem it might be a registry problem "you only need to do the following" if you cant see your disk drive in windows explorer Close all open programs Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE SYSTEM CurrentControlSet Control Class {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column. Upper Filters Lower Filters Upper Filters.bak Lower Filters.bak If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete

After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer
Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone. if this fails to fix the problem

It could be a problem with the lens you could use a liquid type lens cleaner place 2-3 drops on top of a cd/dvd then run it Hope this helps.

My Compaq Presario F503AU laptop will not boot to Bios, screen remains blank. On power up I hear 2 faint beeps, sound of fan starting, Led's light up with exception of Capslock after 4o seconds it powers...


Hello,

First try to unplug the laptop, then you open it up with a screwdriver, after doing that, remove the hard disk and the RAM and reinstall it back in, then reassemble the laptop back together to see if it will work.

If it does not work, then try to check if the module is still intact, then you insert an operating systems disc into the DVD tray to see if it will run a new window, if it does, then it means the operating system wiped out and need to be reinstalled.

Inserting the disc will solve the problem as the system will begin to run the operating system.

Take care and good luck

Compaq V2000 - Service Tag V2220US Only recognizes the CD/DVD drive as ''CD'' Does not see it as a DVD Drive. Listed as: _NEC DVD+-RW ND-6500A in Device Manager.


Does the drive show any activity after a disk is inserted and does the LED light illuminate?
If the drive won't read the contents of any CD or DVD disk, then remove the drive an insert it again.
Insert a disk and see if the is activity, if there is nothing then most likely the drive is dead and you need a replacement.
Try and borrow a drive and test it in your laptop.
