Your drive is having problems reading the cd'/dvd's and is causing you computer to freeze, it may be a simple problem like the lens needs cleaning or you may need a new drive. If you open up the tray of the drive and have a look at the lens(may need a magnify glass for this) it may have some dust on it or maybe is scratched. you can use a cd cleaning disk or a cotton bud and some IPA isopropyl alcohol. If problem persist after cleaning you will need a new drive.

Please test it with DVD-R. This laptop may have a drive which is not compatible with DVD+R or DVD+RW media. Also, if the drive is dying, it will not burn DVD media anymore, but it may burn CD media.

Open Windows Explorer or My Computer, right click the CD/DVD drive with the Sims disc in it. For example "D:". Right click on the drive and select "Explore" or "Open". In the list of files you should have a "SETUP.EXE". Double left-click that file.

I put the cd rom into the drive and nothing happens. I go to click on the icon under my computer and it causes the window not to respond.


Confirm that the CD drive is not a CD-ROM dive and the CD you are trying to open is is not a DVD. CD-ROM drive wil not open a DVD ROM and in some cases will cause the system to stop responding if youtry to run it.

How do i get a CD to play on the Dell Latitude computter


There are two reasons why windows will not automatically run a disc when it is inserted the first reason is someone has manually configured the settings "to do nothing" when it detects a disc,; the other reason is your drive is not working.

I will assume it is the first one. In that case open My Computer and right click your CD/DVD drive if it is an audio disc just select play, if it is a system disc select explore then Auto Run to run the program.

I put the dvd in and nothing pops up, so where do go to view the dvd


Be sure that the DVD unit is plugged correctly into the laptop. Second, if nothing "pops", go to my computer and open from there the dvd content. If the dvd it's not present on My computer, it means that it's not correctly connected, or it's broken.
