My cd drive does not recognise cds


Okay. First of all is it a cd drive in your computer as opposed to a DVD drive? If you put a dvd into a cd drive it cannot recognize the dvd. A dvd drive can recognize a cd, but a cd drive cannot recognise a dvd.

Does your computer actually recognize the drive as being present?
If the drive isn't recognized by the computer try:

power off the laptop
Physically remove the cd or dvd drive
power -up the laptop without the cd/dvd drive
power off the latop and refit the dvd/cd drive
power it up again and see if the drive is
recognized

If the drive IS recognized by the laptop but won't play any disk it's probably the drive itself at fault. You can try gently cleaning the inside of the drive - the optic that reads the disk. However, the usual cause is failure of that optic which read the disk information. It cannot be repaired.

The alternative to fitting a new drive is to buy a portable dvd drive. They connect via a usb cable. Have a look on Ebay

My cd/dvd rom do not play when i i insert cd.what can i do?


Try navigating to Start Button/ My Computer/, then Double-click the CD or DVD drive. If no CD or DVD drive shows up in My Computer, there is a problem with the drive. if no disc shows up in the Drive, it is a problem with reading the media.

Compaq Evo N1020v operating system not found. I dont have recovery disk and also it dosnt seem to pick up xp when I insert into CD Drive. What could be the exact settings to boot from CD Drive?


Hi,

Make sure that your CD is Bootable. Now you will need to do settings in BIOS to boot from CD..

1. Power ON the computer and Press "Delete Key" or F1 or F2 or F10 Key to enter in BIOS.
2. Goto Boot Menu Options
3. Select First Boot Device to CD / DVD
4. Second Second Boot Device to HDD
Now Save Settings and exit . it will reboot computer . If your CD is bootable then it will ask to boot from cd message.

Option 2 :
You can try by pressing F12 or F11 key simultaneouslty after power ON computer. It will display Boot Menu so from there you can select "CD/ DVD Drive " and press enter then it will boot from computer.

It will glad to help you further if your problem doesnot get resolved.

Non system disk or desk error


When the system is booting up, go into the bios see if it "sees" the hard drive. If it does then exit and listen to the computer to see if you can hear the hard drive spin up..If not then you need to replace the hard drive.

My laptop doesnot recognize my dvd


Insert a cd and see if that works.
If it works, you may not have a dvd player.
If you know you have a dvd player, and the cd works, but dvd doesn't then it may be the drive.
Does it play anyother dvds or just the one doesn't work?
Try a cd cleaner (at the mart)
If it won't read any dvds then you may need to replace the drive.
Test to see if the driver is corrupt.
Open device manager.
Windows xp – Start button>run> type devmgmt.msc
Vista/Windows 7 – start button> in the search box type devmgmt.msc
Is there a ! on the drive. If there is uninstall and reinstall the driver.

Laptop not show cd or dvd when i put it


Well, for starters, is your cd/dvd turned on in the bios.  Some but not all computer have a setting for this.  If your cd/dvd drive is removable, shut down the computer, remove the drive.  Reboot the computer and shut it down again.  Then reconnect the drive and start the computer back up.  This will make sure that if your drive is working, windows will redetect it.  You can check device manager to make sure it is not disabled.  If none of this works, you may have a bad drive.  If you really must reinstall windows, you can get an external cd/dvd drive pretty cheap on Ebay.  Just make sure you go into your BIOS setting and change the boot menu to external drive.  I hope this information helps.

CD ROM not working


Sounds like your CD Rom has karked it and is dead. This happens for many reasons. Take it into a computer technician to get a new one put in for you and your laptop will run perfect and you won't have to worry about the BIOS problem

Hope This Helps
