After replacing my psu (was old and it shorted out) my LG CD-ROM GCR-8523B doesn't work. It has power but the computer doesn't recognize it..?

It is possible that when psu shorted it shorted part of the mother board. Try going into device manager right on the cd-rom in the list and choose search for new hard ware in the drop down menu. If this doesn't work go back into device manager right click the cd-rom and uninstall the cd-rom and reboot the pc. If it does not auto find the cd-rom that way, the mother board is probably messed up. Oh yeah try unplugging the ribbon cable for the cd-rom from the mother board and plug it back in also.

Please rate, and write testimonial if you feel the need to, if this was helpful.
Thank You

My lg cd-rom works fine but it will not run some games and i dont understand why this is

Perhaps some of the disks are DVD? and NOT CD? check that out. in saying that tho, CD, DVD, are swines of things and some are real picky about what they play. I would suggest ya install a new CD/DVD Reader/Writer and this WILL fix all ya problems.

Dell latitude c640 laptop with cd dvd drive wont play dvd

Check the front of the drive for a DVD logo - if it doesn't have the logo, then it can't read or play DVDs.
If the DVD logo is present on the drive, then you still need a program with Windows in order to play back a DVD video. I'd probably use something along the line of WinDVD from Corel (previously InterVideo).
Good luck, and please rate this answer if you feel it has helped you!!

Dell Latitude cpx

Try to connect and external keyboard to it
with the external monitor.
If the shortcut is in the keypads where most off the beer propably came in contact.
will now be seen if its boots up.
If it boots up with external keyboard the ptoblem is in the beer soaked keyboard.
change or clean the keyboard with isoprophanol
to dissolve moisture and beer.
This is the solution. Please vote!!!

CD drive stuck please help!

Hi I guess ya mean that the CD tray will NOT open? If this is the case... then ya can "Open" it by way of a paper clip straightened... and then insert one end into the hole provided, on the front of the CD... There is a small hole usually just above the LED, inset & push it in until the mechanisim releases.. the tray should pop open and ya will B able to recover ya DVD...
