Re: CD ROM Rubber Ring

Get a new one from any electronic parts selling shop. It's cheaper as anything.

The computer is detecting the CD rom but the cd rom is not detecting or reading any CDs

The laser is probably burned out or the spindle motor isn't turning.
With the price of these units, I'd just replace it.
There's not much you can do to fix either problem anyway.
A CD ROM (hard to find, but some places still carry them) can be had for $5 or $10.
For just a bit more, you could get a DVD burner.

Obtaining a replacement drive belt

1) You can go to the hardware store, and get a rubber O-ring that is slightly smaller than the drive belt.

2) Cut the ring off of a rubber balloon.

3) Here is a website I found in a search that carries various drive belts,

I left the page open to a kit for two reasons.

1) It keeps the Product Details open on the left side, to Drive belts, and keeps the Drive Belt 'tree' open.

2) You may want to give some thought to a kit, (You may not)
The belt usually averages about 95 Cents.
The shipping charge is usually $7.95

It may be more advantageous to buy a kit, with 33 belts of various dimensions for that shipping cost, for one example.

My cd rom drive on my dell tower will not open, how do i fix it

usually, CD/DVD rom drives have small hole in front of them. use a pointy object that will fit in that hole and poke it until the CD tray comes out, then try to close it using the tray button. if that will not fix your problem, it's better to call Dell to replace it. having it fixed by a local computer store is more expensive than actually buying a replacement.

My LCD has hizontal lines appearing. But if I press the side of the mounting in goes back to normal. Seems like something is loose inside, what could I possibly do? Thanks!

Warning: the LCD screen can be easily damaged if you open it up. If you do something wrong the screen might become completely unusable and you’ll have to buy a new screen. It’s very expensive. Think twice before you decide opening the screen. Continue at your own risk.
  1. First of all remove the battery from the notebook.
  2. Lift up rubber screw seals and remove all screws.
  3. Carefully separate the screen bezel from the LCD cover and remove the bezel.
  4. Remove the screws from the front and from both sides.
  5. Carefully remove the LCD screen from the cover and place it on the notebook base. Disconnect the video cable and the inverter board cable.
  6. Disconnect the screen cable and remove the inverter board by removing both screws holding it.
  7. Clean the terminals then reattach the cables firmly.

A cd broke in my cd rom

I've seen and come across cd-roms where cd's have broken (or in most cases exploded/shattered). In one case the drive flew open and bits of cd flew across a classroom, in most cases the drive remains shut (even the tray can get jammed).

This problem is usually caused by a flaw on the cd itself, a scratch or mark on the cd causes it to 'wobble' and due to the speeds cd-roms spin cd's they come off the 'spindle' inside (all that holds it on is a magnet).

I have taken cd-roms apart and removed all the cd parts and the drive has worked perfectly afterwards. Other times the drive has needed to be replaced, so i would say its purely luck if your drive isn't damaged in some way.

Although the problem could have been your drive. Without being able to get the drive ejecting and spinning cd's again you'll never know... just make sure you don't use an important cd to test it with!
