Try doing a system restore first by using Windows Repair. Insert your Windows installer CD and follow the prompts on how to do a Windows repair.

About the BIOS, it is unlikely that that caused it. The common reason to have the problem is because of corrupted system file(s).

Thanks for using Fixya!

The DVD-CD will not open. what do I do?


Try restarting the computer. If that does not work you should open the computer by opening the side panel on the left side of the computer and unplug the power from the back of the computer. Then verify that there is a power connector (white large plug) tightly inserted into the cd rom drive. If the cd rom still doesnt work then you may need to replace the cdrom. You can order a cheap one from newegg.com. To replace the old one you just take the four screws out of the old one and put in the new one and reconnect the two plugs to the new one. good luck and don't be afraid you can fix it.

I just fixed a problem I had with my cd-rom where it wasn't burning my cd's. I downloaded the ASPI Driver for Windows from here and it fixed my problem. Without that driver, your cd-rom doesn't get fully reconized by the system basically. Let me know if this helps.

The best bet and I have had several customers bring systems in with this problem is you have to edit the registry file and get rid of the upper and lower registry values once you do this save and reboot the machine it is just like a new drive was installed worked on all of theres one however came back to me twice and it turned out it was a conflict with other installed hardware. Hope this helps If you simply go to google.com and type clear upper lower registry values and the name and model of you drive as above it usually gives you a step by step and happy computing.

Take the Cd drive out and take off the top. Look inside for a tiny glass cover. Looks like a small light bulb. Clean the fine layer of dust off this glass and you just might be back in business. keever

If this happens with all your CDs and everytime, I would suggest you should replace your CD Rom Drive with a new one. After use of some years CD Rom Drives have such problems. Otherwise a software might locking your drive. you should find a tool which unlocks the drive and then press the eject button.
