Packard Bell computer won't play dvds.

This sounds like a common problem. You need to install the drivers (small programs that instruct the computer to notice and manipulate peripherals, like a dvd or cd player, sound card, etc...).

The easiest place to find your specific driver is at the Packard Bell web site under support > Downloads. There are MANY sites (even some that advertise on this very site) that say they have the drivers for your dvd drive, but go directly to your manufacturer's web site. These companies that provide drivers for computers install a program into your computer and there is a fee for use of these web sites.

UPDATE: I just checked the Packard Bell Web Site and was unable to find specific drivers for your particular model. They stopped making them some time ago, and no longer support the model. That being said, you can still conceivably find the drivers, it will just take some investigative work on your part. In doing a broad search on the internet, I found that many people are looking for that very driver, which is an indication it has become hard to find.

Dvd rw


We need a few clarification questions answered before we can proceed. Okay?

What is the model of your Packerd Bell computer? In you desktop you can press simultaneously the Windows key and the Pause key and the information should be on this pop up window.

Also send us the version and SP number of the version of Windows you are using.

You've come to the right place as many of us here have previous experience with older computers such as yours.

DVD/CD rom not working

check to see what formats are compatible with your player, next check that youve seated all cables correctly and have the latest drivers installed. also, if this a recently working drive that went bad, the lens may need to be cleaned or it might be dead. If this is a new drive, it may not work with your computer.
