Question about Lenovo ThinkPad T61 Notebook
My notebook DVD/CD disk drive keep rejecting even I did not put any disk in it? how do I solve it?
Sounds like it is not closing properly so the computer just opens it again ? if it is of the detachable type ( small release tag under computer marked with a closed or open lock icon next to release lever ) take out the drive with the door open it possible , check inside for any obstruction ( favorite place for children's random M&Ms ) if none visible check that the disk holder is below the carrige by using a small ruler place acroos the slide and see if the edges of the disc protrude above if not and you have found no foreign bodies in the drive replace the player into the machine .( I have found that occasionaly during manufacture the cariges are set a little high and as they wear they settle and they then catch on the center spindle ,gently easing the disc spindle holder down usually cures the problem .) There is I am afraid also a software glitch that causes this problem so if you have no joy with the first fix try uninstalling the drive from the Device manager and reinstalling on boot up . you do this by clicking on control panel .. then ... Device manager .. disk drives double click and the drives will appear select dvd and right click then uninstall .. for XP just go Control panel system device manager etc : reeboot and the computer will re install the DVD and hopefully clear the glitch .. hope this is of help to you Regards Vortash
