    I removed the drivers, now I cannot find a site to download and reinstall the drivers. Any suggestions?

    I did everything you suggested but to no avail. I do feel better knowing that I tried everything before I replace the drive. I really appreciate your help.

Hi, I found the answer to this for myself on the Dell Community Forum. It works! The original problem is caused by itunes or similar software that targets your your cd/dvd drive.

Unfortunately, I have seen this problem all too often on notebook computers. Most of the time, the drive needs to be replaced. On occasion, the drivers are faulty and the problem can be fixed by re-installing the drivers.

First, try to reinstall the drivers and reboot the computer. If that doesn't work, you will need to replace the drive itself.

Hope this helps.

Hi. I'm having same problem with my dvd drive. At times it works, at times it doesn't. What absolutly is not working is if I try to make a copy of a DVD. Problems start especially when I'm trying to burn a DVD. I've tried the link to microsoft, but it hasn't work for me. I'm quite frustrated by now, and am thinking buying new external dvd bunrer. If anyone knows other possible solution, please... I will appreciate. Thanks.

Aspire 9500 doesn't start - cursor and drive indicator blinks


Generally the bios setting will be set to check the primary Hard disk for the Operating system and then move to the CD/DVD drive . It looks like your system is not finding the hard disk. Thats why its moving on the CD drive and trying to read it.

Possible issues :

1) Hard Drive crash
Solution : Nothing much. You need to replace the hard drive and reinstall the OS.
2) Hard Drive connection issue.
Solution : Open the chasi and try to figure out if the hard disc is properly connected.
3) Corrupted OS or boot file
Solution : Try to repair the OS use the OS cd and run the repair option.
4) Bios setting to treat CD drive as the primary media.
Solution : Use the F10 option in the Bios to change the primary Media.

Rate the Solution accordingly...

Hello,

In order to provide exact solution let me know exactly what is happening. Also Let me know the operating system you are using.

Also open my computer nd let me if you see the CD/DVD drive icon thier.

Also Insert any cd or dvd in to the CD/DVD drive and let me know if you hear the spinng sound of the cd and also check if you see the little light blinking on the cd/dvd drive when the cd is spinning.

Thank you.

That is because either you screen is dead(test by connecting a exteral monitor) or you motherboard is dead and I have been seeing many dead motherboards as of late

My DVD Rom wont open


You can get the DVD out by putting a pin into the little hold on the other side of the eject button. Try putting an audio CD into the drive and see if it recognizes it. If it won't see anything and there's no light, it's probably broken and time for a trip to the computer repair shop of your choice.
