Re: d drive not working

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

it works for XP as well. if you are comfortable, you can delete upper and/or lowerfilters manually from registry editor. i hope it will work

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

Compaq presario 2100 laptop, starts to run, then goes to black screen with start in safe mode etc, then a blue box appears, gone before you are able to read anything that it says, then laptop restarts...

Check the mounting screws on the cd burner,yes you have to remove the keyboard and speakers,and check the two visible mounting scews.....I rescently bought a used presario and discovered the yo-yo didn't mount the cd rom properly(no screws)...The screen you saw flashed is the BIOS,also check fitment of all plug in type accessories......
