My sony vaio pcg-551l won't go past "no operating system"


If this is the first time your trying to start up this computer try to restart it. Sometimes brand new laptops can fail to find the operating system on first startup. If this isn't the case it sounds like your Hard Drive is either disconnected or has had a critical failure.

bad optical disk drive or bad connection restart your computer open bios and see if its showing your disk drive there... if not then you could turn it off remove the drive turn on the machine let it boot then shut it down and restart it if it still doesnt show up you need a new drive... if it does show up and still not reading cd's or if it was there all along you could have a bad odd lens which i would say just replace your cdrom drive

I need to remove a disk from a Sony NEC Optiarc AD-7640S


CD Stuck in Device
First try the normal methods to remove the disc. Drag its icon to the Trash can in the Dock or select 'Eject' from the File menu. If you are running a virtual machine, e.g. VMFusion, ensure that the CD is disconnected from the virtual machine. This will sometimes allow the CD to now show up in Mac OS X. Shut down the computer and start up whilst holding down the mouse button. This may take some time, but keep your finger on the mouse button right up until the disc comes out or the log-in screen has appeared. If you have Toast Titanium installed on your computer, choose EJECT DISC from the menubar. Sometimes you can successfully use the eject disc button in iTunes even if the disc is not visible to the Finder Open Disk Utility and choose the disc you wish to eject in the left-hand pane, then click on the Eject button. Some Macintoshes have a paperclip hole that you can insert a straightened paperclip into, manually triggering the eject mechanism. Open Terminal and type "drutil tray eject" to eject the disc/tray, and "drutil tray close" to close the tray. Restart the computer while holding down Command-Option-O-F, to enter the Open Firmware prompt. Type "eject cd" without the quotes, and press return. The disk ought to eject. To start into OS X, type "mac-boot" without the quotes. Press return, and the computer will continue with the startup. (This will not work on an Intel Mac. There is no Open Firmware on Intel Macs. ) If your computer has an eject button on the keyboard, restart the computer holding down the Option key. When the startup disk selection screen appears, let go of the option key and press the keyboard's eject button.

How do I eject my cd from my studio computer?


Assuming the normal eject button isn't working....

Shut the computer down. Do not just re-boot. Wait at least two minutes, then start the machine again. After it re-boots, try ejecting the CD again with the eject button.

If still no luck, look for a small hole in the CD drive front cover. Open a paper clip and insert it into the hole carefully. This should permit the CD door to open.

This problem can sometimes be caused by a bad CD and in other cases, a corrupt CD driver. If it keeps happening, try re-installing the drivers for the drive. The last resort would be a bad CD/DVD drive.

Hello Can anyone help me. I have a Toshiba Satellite A300 laptop and quite often it wont find the cd/dvd rom drive. Usually if I restart it, it works ok, but sometimes I have to restart it several times....


on mine, i sometimes accidently "safely remove hardware" for the drive and then it doesn't read or even open the drive automatically. that might be your problem.

Sometimes the DVD drive will not open. It is fairly annoying.


Sir,
Go to My Computer and right clicked on the DVD Rom drive and clicked eject. If any error appears let me know. Also try to insert a straightened paper clip into the designated hole on the CD/DVD drive casing to manually force an eject. If it is not worked replace the cables(master slave).
Thanks Good Luck

Optiarc DVD Drive does not work anymore.


Try uninstalling the device in the Device Manager, then restart the computer. See if Windows redetects the device and reinstall it. Next, try accessing the BIOS and see if the BIOS sees it, and be sure its enabled there. If both of these options fail, open the machine and make sure that the drive has a working power connector attached. If the connector is bad, switch the power lead over to a working connector.

Well...

I am VERY confused by your description here. I can't tell if you're talking about the processor as it appears inside of your computer itself...or if you're refering to the processor as it appears in Windows.

Please try to be a little more specific with your explanation. Go step-by-step in what you are doing and what is happening.
