EMachines W3400 DVD not opening

Whenever i enter a DVD disc into my eMachines W3400, nothing happens. this is a new problem with my computer, where it will not open ANY DVDs. I don't know if i have a DVD driver problem or what to do. the computer acts as if no DVD is in the drive and states "no disc" when i try to open the dvd.

Go to your control panel, systems, hardware, device manager and see if the device is reconginzed. If there is a "!" by the DVD drive, there is a hardware issue or driver issue with the device.

W3400 service manual


A service manual for any eMachine will not be available. The best you will be able to get is a "user manual" which is next to useless for actually servicing a problem. eMachines are notorious for poor and non existent documentation.

I bought a ET1331G-03w at Wal-Mart. I want to create recovery disks. I follow the instructions given with the product....For Windows 7 click (start)> All programs>emachines> eMachines Recovery...


What type of disks are you using? You cannot use DVD RW. You need to use DVD - R . I have had this very issue. Hope this helps.

PS, once it tries to write to a dvd and fails, try a new one.

After installing hard drive, monitor, keyboard, mouse not working


Have you tried to enter BIOS? Are you able to enter BIOS?? There may be an option you have to hit to enable SATA, and to select the boot device order, which may be messing things up.
Also, remember that STATIC ELECTRICITY is your enemy! Ground yourself when working inside the case.

Any computer would freeze either due to a hardware conflict or due to some software installed which is taking up all the resources and your PC stops responding. Have you made any changed recently? Installed any new hardware or software?
