My dvd cd rom cannot read anything at all


Hi s_francis_sb ,

Please follow the below steps :-
  1. Get a lens cleaner from the market and insert it in your DVD ROM driver , this would help remove the dust particles on the lens which could be a reason for the DVDs not being read.
  2. Remove the lens cleaner from the tray and then insert a clean cd free of any dust in the DVD drive , if this works , then you have your problem resolved.
  3. If the above procedure does not work , then you need to get the lens replaced so that you have a working lens which can read your DVDs perfectly.
  4. If you feel that a new lens would cost you much as compared to a new DVD rom , since they are available cheap these days, you can go for a new one...:)
Hope this helps...:)

start
search box and type in device manager

i hope this sorts it for you

also have you checked in your programs to see if recovery is in there
as some laptops have it built in on the hidden part of the hard drive

I put in a disc and no options are coming up on the screen and the disc is not reading burning nor burning cd


Try and access the CD-ROM drive from My Coputer folder. If the CD can be read, that means that auto run is disabled on your system. If still you cann the read the CD, then there is a problem with your CD-ROM drive. Try cleaning the CD-ROM drive lens with the appropriate cleaning kit.
