It's likely to be these four main culprits:

Video Card / GPU

Memory

Motherboard

CPU

Start by opening up the case (with the power removed of course) and try removing and reseating your video card and memory sticks.

Then restart the computer.

If nothing changes, try removing the bios battery with the computer unplugged for about five minutes then put it back.

If those don't work then it's probably a motherboard problem, but if you get any beeps messages or anything else changes, let me know and I'll throw some ideas your way.

Computor wont recognize dvd player


You might need to have a computer administrator account to perform some tasks.
Most new devices your computer will recognise automatically. When your comp is running, plug in your new dvd player. Does it beep and say 'New Hardware added? If not then use
The Add Hardware Wizard which enables you to add new hardware or troubleshoot any hardware-related problems.
Open the Add Hardware Wizard

  • To open the Add Hardware Wizard, click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Printers and Other Hardware. Under See Also, click Add Hardware.
  • If it can't recognise the player, it gives you the option to select the correct make and model. Is yours on the list? If not, you may need to go to the Microsoft site and update the list of players.
  • Do come back here if you need further help.

My cd and dvd player and burner is not working.When I put a cd in my computor nothing happens. I use to be able to play cd's and play dvd movies, but now it won't play them or burn them.Please help.


Equipment doesn't just stop working randomly unless it died. If you didn't install a new operating system or do anything drastic in terms of deleting files there is a good chance that you may need a new CD/DVD drive. They aren't that expensive though and are pretty universal between computers.

DVD player froze, now only turns off


Sounds like the power supply in the dvd player has failed. It works just well enough to turn on the led infront but as soon as you go to do anything it shuts off. This is common in cheaper dvd players. Unless you can troubleshoot electronics. Or know someone that can. Your best bet is to unplug the unit and disassemly and retrieve your dvd.
