Re: My cd-rom

Go to your control panel and open sytem folder, proceed to hardware tab, click on device manager and select the name of your CD-ROM drive. see if this device is enabled, right click on it and open properties. You may then use the windows trouble shooter to isolate your problem.

Re: My cd-rom

I had same problem with my cdrom drive on my emachines. i put in a cd and the next thing i know the driver broke. When i took it apart, the cd blew up into small peices. way bizzare. all i can suggest is unplugging the cord inside the computer and then plug it back in. Possibly a bad connection

Re: My cd-rom

Hi, You should be able to get a paper clip, preferably one of the bigger ones and open it out so you have a straight section of wire, then at the fron of the CD drive you will find a very small hole. Carefully slip the wire into the hole as far as it will go then you will need to push against the manual release with reasonable pressure and the door will come open. Remove your disk and close the door and restart the machine. It may be that the disc became stuck for some reason and froze the drive. Once the offending disc is removed it will hopefully come back online.
If it doesn't come back then the CD drive may have failed, fortunately they are not too expensive to replace anymore.

1st sorry for my bad english ... but my cd rom dont want to open . when i press the button the green light turns one and i hear a sound, but the cd rom dont open , can u solve this please? ... thnx

This happens when the drive motor inside dies.
You can take a small paperclip and insert it into the tiny hole you find in the face of the drive to manually open the tray. Use this method to remove any disk stuck inside of the drive currently. go to for a cheap replacement drive.

First thing you do is to see what hard disc installed in your laptop. You can check that by checking it in your bios system. To check in your bios system first turn off your computer then press delete while your laptop is booting up. Then you will see if there is a hard disk detected in your lap top if there is a detected hard drive this means you have a problem in your windows installed in your lap top.
There is also a reason why those message appear if the first boot of your laptop is the CD/DVD ROM. Check you CD/DVD ROM if there a CD inside this may the first on to read while the laptop booting up. Remove the cd inside your CD/DVD ROM. Then restart your laptop. Check your hard disk connector it may have some loose contact thats why your laptop did not recognize the hard disc.
Hope this can help keep on touch with fixya. Hope to hear some testimonial from you. . .

not necessarily... if the game works on other computers... it isn't the game... make sure there's no dust... dirt... fingerprints... ect. on the disk... open the drive... get a can of air... use the straw... and blow it out... if it still doesn't work... then the drive might not support that game... and you'll need to upgrade it.

Drive not spinning properly When I insert a CD, the drive can't spinning properly. So, the data can't read.

If your CD is no longer working properly, then it only mean that it has to be replaced. It is already defective.
It is cheaper to get a replacement, than get it repaired.

Latitude C840 wont reconize optical drive in BIOS

When you get no disk error, that is usually because of a problem with the optical laser lens that is dirty, faulty or opaque, and will start operating on certain disks better than others.

In that case you will hear disk spinning, whirring and clicking, but the TOC (table of content track at start of CD/DVD will not be read, therefore the error.

Whe this problem is starting you may be able to read only CD, DVD or Blue ray, or for example only DVD-R and not +R , or only to read and not to write and so on. After more prolonged usage , often the unit goes losing the rest of functions, and ends up not reading anything at all.

If instead there is no noise, and disk does not spin at all , then there is a faulty motor, or the motor micro-switch is bad. This situation is far less common than the lens problem.

Try first using a CD/DVD or Blue ray lens cleaner disk to clean the lens. If that does not work you will need to disassemble the drive , and clean lens directly with q tips and isopropyl alcohol, or to replace the the whole drive unit.

CD ROM is jammed-wont open

This has happened to me. Sometimes when I'm in a hurry I'll place a CD or DVD in the tray and start to close it without making sure that the disk is seated flat in the tray. If it's ****-eyed the CD wil shatter when the tray is closed. The only way to remove the pieces inside the CD drive is to take apart the CD drive. Might be easier just to replace the unit. They run from about $25.00 to $75.00. One other note: You can try to open the tray manually by inserting the end of a paper clip into a small hole on the front bezel of the drive.
