Question about Dell Inspiron 530 Desktop Computer

1 Answer

My Dell Inspiron 530 won't read any DVD Rom but reads regular CD's. I am not sure what is going on here? I have uninstalled the driver and the device many times thinking it would fix it self, no luck with that. I have updated the driver on Dell's (useless) website, and no luck with that. I have tried a few other diff things... and of course, NO LUCK! Please help me, Thank you :( Gabi Ace

I formatted the harddrive of a Dell Inspirion 530. It says BOOTMGR missing on the main screen so I put in the VISTA OS disc and it won't read it, and acts like it's not even in the computer.

Hi, go to the above dell website and go to page 192.
It sounds like to me you need to change the boot order in your bios. Follow this instructions and put your cd/dvd drive at the top of the list, then it should run the vista install disk.
Hope this helps

I believe you may have a corrupt driver for your cd-rom or dvd rom.
Dell Driver support

Find your DVD or CD device and reinstall your Drivers.
The problem should go away.
If not, you may have a bad driver or cable.

My iolo registry repair damaged my cd rom registry and now my cd rom drive does nothing. What can I do to fix it?

My first thought is to open Device Manager (Control Panel, System, Hardware tab, Device Manager button). Open DVD/CD-ROM drives by clicking on the + sign next to it, then highlight the drive and press DEL key. A message appears "Warning - you are about to uninstall this device" - click OK.

After it has been uninstalled, go to Action menu - Scan for Hardware Changes and the drive will be reinstalled.

Hopefully this will restore the function of your drive.

Dvd drive is having problems reading any disk and the firmware has been updated.

use a lens cleaner disc which will clean the lens. After a lot of use the lens that reads the disc gets full of dust and sometimes stops the cd/dvd from reading anything.

Try to uninstall and then reinstall the driver for the DVD rom. Also, make sure you have a DVD application software that you can use to play those DVDs; like Realplayer.
