Cd-rom/dvd-rom door won't open

I was installing a printer driver and now my CD-ROM/DVD-ROM door won't open and the computer is not reading the drive anymore. When I try to use the "Eject" command, it doesn't open. I tried using the "Eject" button manually and it also doesn't open. I also tried restarting the computer several times and it still doesn't do anything. I would really appreciate any suggestions you might have.

Re: cd-rom/dvd-rom door won't open

Hi!This is not a big problem...All you have do is take a pin, needle or something and just insert it into the small hole near your cd-rom drive..try this repeatedly while pressing the eject button..If it doesn't work you will have to unscrew the two screws on the right of your keyboard..doing this will give you the access to the cd tray and you can remove the cd and put it back together..

To resolve this problem, remove the affected filter drivers. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start vistastartbutton.jpg, type regedit in the Start Search box, and then click regedit in the Programs list.

  2. Locate, and then click the following registry subkey: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}Caution There can be many instances of the registry subkey that is mentioned in step 2. You must make sure that you are in the appropriate registry subkey before modifying the UpperFilters and the LowerFilters values. To verify that you are in the appropriate registry subkey, make sure that the Default data value is DVD/CD-ROM and the Class data value is CDROM.
  3. In the right pane, if you have UpperFilters, right-click UpperFilters, and then click Delete.
  4. Click Yes to confirm the removal of the UpperFilters registry entry.
  5. In the right pane, if you have LowerFilters, right-click LowerFilters, and then click Delete.

I dont have a dvd driver only a cd rom one and when i put a dvd in nothing happens


The reason behind that is because the CD ROM cannot read DVDs. If you want to play or install DVD based programs you need to replace your CD ROM with a DVD-ROM or DVD-RW. You also can purchase an external DVD ROM if you dont want take that CD ROM from its place.

My dvd rom icon not show or doesn't install dvd rom driver...from where we will get lenovo y410 dvd rom driver

Hi errajeev_iit,

The CD/DVD Driver is an Operating System generic Driver and it can be re-installed from the Device Manager. Please press with Window Logo and the R Keys on your Keyboard to open the Run window, then type devmgmt.msc and press the Enter Key to open the Device Manager. After that, on the Open Device Manager window, please click the "Actions" menu and select the Scan for Hardware changes option. This will re-install the CD/DVD Drive Driver in the Computer.

Hope this helps.

Please let me know if you have any questions or require further assistance.

Thanks for using FixYa.

My hp laptop cd rom is not detecting the cds. i want to formate my laptop.

Hi there, do not format now. Just try these.
Run the driver disk & install the CD/DVD driver. After finish the setup restart your pc or laptop. Hope that time your CD rom detecting the cds. But make sure, that your rom is working. Because if the cd rom is damaged then after formatting you can't install the operating system. May be your cd rom lens is damaged & that's why he can't read the cds or dvds. I suggest you Visit a service center & check the cd rom only. If you able to view the cd rom driver in side the my computer then, i am sure your vd rom lens is damaged.
Thanks & waiting for your feedback.

Dvd does not work. Light blinks but not seeing it . is there a driver i need or what do i do to fix this

You must determine if the problem is the media you are using (CD, DVD) or the drive itself. (CD/DVD Rom)
First see if the driver is installed for the CD/DVD ROM by Right clicking My Computer and choosing Properties, Hardware, Device Manager. Clikc the plus sign next to DVD/CD Rom Drives to see if there is a yellow exclamation point, or question mark. This means you need to install the correct driver. If there are no yellow exclamation marks or question marks your driver is installed properly.
Next try playing difffernt CD's to see if any of them work. Confirm they are good CD's by playing them on another device, then try them on your Compaq. If the Cd's play on another device you may possibly be experiencing read errors on the CD/DVD Rom drive. Try using a CD Laser Cleaner that will clean the laser head of the CD /DVD Rom. it looks like a CD with small brushes on the music side. This may solve a read error problem. if that does not solve your problem you may need to replace the CD/DVD Rom drive.

CD/DVD rom drive not working

Hi there.
It sounds like the drivers could be bad or the lens has gone.
This can be a common problem with vista loosing the CD/DVD drives.
Do this >>>>>> right click on "computer" and select "manage" from the sub menu, then select "device manager" from the left hand side, it will generate a list of devices, look down the list for CD/DVD and click on the + icon next to it, from the drop down list right click and uninstall, restart the PC and let vista re-install the drivers for you, then try to use the CD/DVD.
If this does not work please post back.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Hi there.
If its Vista you are using, right click on "computer", select "manage" a window will pop up, select "device manager" you will now see a list of devices, look down the list and locate the CD/DVD Rom, click on the + icon next to the CD/DVD, right click on it and select "uninstall". restart the machine and load windows up as usual, the drivers for the CD/DVD will install automatically and you should be able to use the CD/DVD Rom.
