Cd-roms require a driver but comes with all Operating Systems. The power cable connected by itelf is enough to open it...if you push the button and it won't open, get a new one, takes 20 minutes to buy, 5 days to get and 30 minutes to install. Basically about an hour of time and 30-40 bucks off of tigerdirect.com

When powering up, the CDROM light just blinks every second


Troubleshoot the problem this way. If the clicking noise comes from the CDROM then disconnect the power and ribbon cable from the rear of the CDROM and attempt to boot your PC again. If you think there is a CDROM stuck in the drive (and due to settings that let CDs such as Windows install disks boot from the CD ROM), You can get the CD out with the PC off by getting a large paperclip, and after straigtrning out the wire, you will see a small hole in the front of the CDROM drive usually below the tray that comes out for you to put the CD in. Push the paperclip in firmly, and the tray will pop out, letting you get your CD out. Retry booting after the CD has been removed.

I have a hp special edition L2000. Power is getting to the computer as the LED lights come on and then continuously blink. I can feel the cdrom running in a start and stop pattern, much like the blinking...


try to recover first your data, remove hard disk and make it slave to other station. copy all your files. then you may now reformat using a fresh install of windows xp.

CDRom is not present in Vista 32 - Shows driver not working...


Check "Computer" or My Computer and see if the drive is there. If not, reboot the system and go to the System Setup page (hit F2 on the Dell splash screen). Check if the CDROM drive is present under Drive Configuration. If not, reseat the CDROM drive. Remove it from the computer and just put it back in. If you think this is a software issue, backup all your files to a USB flash drive and do an image restore. Hit F8 several times continuously when you see the Dell Splash Screen then select Repair Your Computer. Login on the System Recovery Page. Choose Dell Factory Image Restore. This will bring your computer back to where it started.

Cd rw/dvd rw now working


If you know how to open your laptop, you can try seeing if the cable to the CDROM is connected properly. On startup, does your computer recognize the drive? If it's not the cable, you need a new cdrom drive.
