I see this many, many times, invariably it is actually a Faulty CD/DVD. Unless the PC has been subject to some rough treatment the cables wouldn't "Fall Off" But it don't hurt to check.. The Dell Units usually have the Front Pull Off, and then there are screws to release the side panels.. OR they have Philips Screw Head fixings at the rear four corners, & in the middle. Or check your manual.

Hi there, i purchased a second laptop for my kids to play with, the computer is running window xp. when i placed a cd or dvd into the computer the computer doesnt detect it. nothing happens.


Try the following steps:

right click on my computer, select properties
click hardware tab, then click device manager

in the device manager, click + sign next to cd-dvd rom devices.
you will see cd-dvd driver listed here.
right click on it and select un-install
driver will be gone

now open the following website and run fixit software

Did a system restore of compaq presario 5000 computer. cd/dvd player will not play gaming cds


See if it would play regular cd, then see if it would play dvd's. The reason is because most gaming cd now and days are dvd's and maybe your dvd-rom has a driver issue or the laser head isn't reading it. So try that first, then see if the drivers for the cd/dvd rom is working properly in the device manager. It may need a dvd coded software, try installing like powerdvd or something. If it still ain't working, and it can't play dvd's then your cd-drive could be history

Hello, maybe you've only got a cd drive fitted in your Presario. Check the logo on the drive door and see if it mentions DVD Regards, nicam49

Bios password recovery....


If it's a "desktop" computer (not a "laptop") computer, open the case, and look for three gold pins in a row, with a jumper between pins #1 and #2.
With the computer turned off, move the jumper to connect pins #2 and #3. After a few seconds, return the jumper to its original position.
You have now "cleared" all the BIOS settings, including removing the BIOS password.

Game problem


Try it in a friends computer to see if it works there. If not, then there is a problem with the disc. I'd take the game back to where you bought it.
