When I am starting my Lenovo G550,Model Name-20023 it restart with blue scrren. I am trying to start it in safe mode but same problems appears. Then I am trying to format the system with windows XP-2 but...

If you get a blue screen then you have a piece of hardware loose inside your lappy or could be a loose cable on the hard drive or cd/dvd rom, since lappy's are very hard to take apart it's best to take it to a shop to get fixed sorry.

Dvd does not work. Light blinks but not seeing it . is there a driver i need or what do i do to fix this

You must determine if the problem is the media you are using (CD, DVD) or the drive itself. (CD/DVD Rom)
First see if the driver is installed for the CD/DVD ROM by Right clicking My Computer and choosing Properties, Hardware, Device Manager. Clikc the plus sign next to DVD/CD Rom Drives to see if there is a yellow exclamation point, or question mark. This means you need to install the correct driver. If there are no yellow exclamation marks or question marks your driver is installed properly.
Next try playing difffernt CD's to see if any of them work. Confirm they are good CD's by playing them on another device, then try them on your Compaq. If the Cd's play on another device you may possibly be experiencing read errors on the CD/DVD Rom drive. Try using a CD Laser Cleaner that will clean the laser head of the CD /DVD Rom. it looks like a CD with small brushes on the music side. This may solve a read error problem. if that does not solve your problem you may need to replace the CD/DVD Rom drive.

Fan stopped working

If your lappy is still functioning good except the fan of course. Then just replace that with same spec fan.

Try borrowing a compatible HDD instead of buying a third one for testing and check if the same error exists. Try also using an external DVD drive to see if your internal CD-ROM is defective. Try also using another Windows XP CD installer. You can also use other OS installation CD to check it. Otherwise, there is something wrong with your lappy's motherboard due to tear and wear, heat, vibration, misuse and shock.

Hi there

Will first of all is it a dvd rom/ cd rom drive or just a dvd rom, because you cant use cds in dvd drives! Second of all, make sure your driver is fully updated, it might be missing something that it needs that will fix the problem after you update it!

Cd/Dvd Drive

You need to read on the drive and see exactly what type of drive it is. A DVD-ROM drive is read only and will NOT burn DVD's. The drive needs to read DVD-RW, in order to burn DVD's.

Problem with lappy reading music discs and programs

Most DVD drives have two lenses - one for CD's and another to read DVD's. It could be that the CD lens on your drive is failing. Try using a CD lens cleaner (available in most electronic shops). If that doesnt work, then the lens is scratched and will have to be replaced.
If that is the case, then I suggest buying a new DVD drive, as it would be cheaper than attempting a repair.

DVDwriter on a toshiba satellite pro 4600?

I've got a DVD burner installed some time ago in a Satellite Pro 4600. To do this you have to have the right settings regarding Master and Slave - as far as I can remember a Master drive is needed. To get a 6500A NEC drive running I had to solder two pins together in order to get it recognized as a Master drive on the second IDE controller; you can find a pretty good explanation at (sorry, all German but perhaps the images might help). So, before you buy a new drive make sure you get one that is already set as a Master - ask your dealer! Sometimes a new firmware could do the same.
After setting the drive to Master I have used it on Linux without any problems so far...
