It may be bad. Has the laptop been damaged? Dropped? Open Device Manager, DVD/CD Rom drives, is it listed? In Start Menu, Computer, Is it listed? Try re installing the DVD rom driver, the MS Vista 32bit drivers can be found here: http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/04/Product/vostro-a860

MY , CD/DVD LAPTOP DRIVER DOESN'T WORK. IT CAN


goto run and type "compmgmt.msc"(without quotes) and select disc management if the dvd drive is showing below the hard disks means your dvd drive is working fine only thing you have to do is to right click on the CD-Rom 0 and change drive letter and paths to it
.if the CD ROM option is not seen in disk management then you have to go to the device manager option under computer management and expand cd/dvd -rom drives and you will find your dvd drive model if not that means that your dvd drive has got hardware problem

HI I HAVE A DELL VOSTRO A860 AND I JUST INSTALLED WINDOWS 7 EVERYTHING IS WORKING FINE EXCEPT THE SOUND IVE DOWNLOADED VISTA DRIVERS REALTEK AND CONEXTEANT DRIVERS BUT I CANT SEEM TO GET THE SOUND TO WORK...


If you hear the sound on the headphones then the drivers installed correctly and the defect is either hardware - the jack for the headphones is stuck so the internal speakers are no longer activated when you unplug the headphones = the jack will have to be replaced by a shop - or software - you will have to go into the Realtek HD Control Panel and configure the audio outputs correctly = enable or unmute the internal speakers.
The Panel icon can be found in the notification area or in Start > Control Panel.

My hp laptop cd rom is not detecting the cds. i want to formate my laptop.


Hi there, do not format now. Just try these.
Run the driver disk & install the CD/DVD driver. After finish the setup restart your pc or laptop. Hope that time your CD rom detecting the cds. But make sure, that your rom is working. Because if the cd rom is damaged then after formatting you can't install the operating system. May be your cd rom lens is damaged & that's why he can't read the cds or dvds. I suggest you Visit a service center & check the cd rom only. If you able to view the cd rom driver in side the my computer then, i am sure your vd rom lens is damaged.
Thanks & waiting for your feedback.

I got my dell vostro a860 in june 2009 ...now my problem is taht my cd/dvd doesn't work....sometimes i see it in my computer and device manage/but sometimes i don't...I bought 2 dell vostro A860...on one...


first try this fixit tool

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314060

If that doesn't work, try swapping the drives between the systems and see if the issue follows the drive. If the issue follows the drive, replace it.

If the issue stays with the system, then it is either SW (the fixit link should help) or the MB contacts for the drive are bad.

My laptop cant find my new dvd rom


It might be an operating system problem, something in the registry.
If you use windows, update to the last service pack to fix the registry, and install the DVD driver before mounting it
if you use vista try to download the driver before installing the DVD. Still many devices does not work with vista.
Thanks for using fixya…good luck and don’t forget to rate this…
cheers
