    Hello,

    click my computer, check whether is there a DVD CD drive icon is there. If it is not, maybe the connector is connected properly or cables are faulty or u need to install the device driver or computer cannot read it. If the icon is there, maybe the DVD CD drive is faulty, u might change a new one.

    I hope u can test it out.

With the age of that laptop take a damp qtip with glass cleaner on the laser of the dvd drive and wipe it off gently.

After this, try different dvd's and see if the drive works, if it does work then that means dust or dirt was getting in the way.

If it still doesn't work then the drive is bad and needs to be replaced.

Cd rom donot work


Either your CD/DVD drive is dirty & needs to be cleaned, or the drive has gone bad & needs to be replaced.
First, try to take the drive off the laptop. Open the drive & blow compressed air into it (from a can of compressed air) to clean it. You could also clean the lens (the small round glassy object inside the drive) using lens cleaning tissues & lens cleaning fluid.
If this did not fix the problem, you will need to replace the CD/DVD drive with a working one, or use an external CD/DVD drive.

Cd/dvd drive not displayed in Bios or Device Manager


Your drive has failed and needs to be replaced. The controller in the drive is probably the culprit, the drive is still receiving power but cannot communicate with the computer.

I have a new hard drive and no operating system for my laptop


well you donot need special programs you can use the same operating system to format, partition and load your operating system, after you connect your harddrive to your board go to setup Bios and look for the hardware that installed on your chip and you will see if your hardrive is recognized, After that load your operating system cd on your dvd rom and let the pc boot to that dvd drive, here the you will start loading the operating system, so you have to format, partition and then install windows, Try windows vista will make it easy for you.

The DVD player could be defective. If it is not seen in the device manager within Windows, then it is not being seen at all by the Operating System.

Check your connections to the DVD drive. On many laptops, the DVD can easily be removed and reinserted.
