Then try its settings on power and cd rom tweak it. If not contact problem. Then in cd, try lens cleaner if not replace or for last before replacing swab the lens with cotton buds with a little amount of 70 percent alcohol. For safety do it when unit is off.

I have a dell insperon 5150 and cant figure out why it wont work on power or battery.i tried 3 different ac adapters and all worked 1 or 2 times .but nothing seems to work.

If they are working 1 or 2 times and then failing, it is probably a misaligned motherboard frying anything you plug in. Although I have never heard of a case, I'd imagine the battery could also fry the adapters.

If you're willing to risk another AC adapter, plug it in with the battery REMOVED and see if that fixes it. If not, it needs to be sent to either the manufacturer (if under warranty) or taken to a shop (if not).
