Try to use a cd that is working before, if it does not play then you need to clean your cd rom,we have a lot of brands of lens cleaner in hte market. after cleaning try to play again the cd which were running before. if it will play then run the cd which you noticed that it won't play. if it doesn't then that is a cd issue that might be not supported by your dvd rom

Dell inspiron 530 cd /dvd quit working

Windows Vista (if that's the operating system you're running) has a bad habit of not recognizing CD/DVD drives. The first thing to do is to confirm that your drive is still good. If you've got a bootable CD or DVD (i.e. Windows OS install disk) put it in your drive and reboot the computer and see if you see the text "Press and key to boot to cd...." appear. If you see this, then the drive is ok and it's some corrupt registry settings that need to be fixed. If you don't see that text appear and you're sure you have your boot order set properly so that the computer will try to boot the the CD/DVD drive before trying the hard drive, then it could be that the drive has actually stopped working.
Anyway, if you got the option to boot to the CD/DVD drive with the bootable disk in it, you'll need to follow these directions to get it working again.;EN-US;929461

Weird hard drive won't boot

How to set jumpers to run two hard drives

Haven't read anything about setting up either of them as slave and the other as master... if you don't do that... you get this sort of "HUH, what's going on." Not quite that simple, but not that hard either if you're IQ is probably at least 80, you should be able to do it... heck, half the drives have the jumper settings printed on them.

Laptop CD/DVD Drive

I think buying a USB DVD drive is a very sensible idea as internal drives on laptops can be a pain to remove and fit and they are more prone to failure than their desktop brothers because of their flimsy construction.

Computer doing weird sh_t

About the printer: Have you checked the print queue to make sure it's all ready to go, and the queue not 'offline'? If so, just reinstall the printer driver from newly downloaded sources (from the printer maker.)

You might need to go open up the Windows (and/or other firewall) so that Firefox is allowed to connect to the internet.

What kind of errors does the CD burner throw out? If it won't read the disk at all and the connections are fine, an interface might have gone bad, but more likely Windows (to hazard a guess) just has a wayward opinion of it. So open Device Manager and see if you can sway it; otherwise you're down to backing things up (or just moving the hard drive to an external USB mount) and reinstalling Windows or another OS on a new hard drive (given that drives aren't generally expensive.)

That iTunes behavior is pretty bad! I hope you found an antivirus and set it to work overnight at some point (less necessary if you reinstall, but ClamWin is free.) There was probably an easier fix in Apple's forums about that.

All those things are consistent with having run service packs from Microsoft, but then they could also be from serious issues. If you don't know what you did in those two months that might have set the thing off, and looking through Task Manager, and System Logs appropriate to your system doesn't offer a clue, you have arrived at reinstituting control over the system (likely by installing the OS anew, perhaps on a new drive/drives.) Running striped RAID on 2 new drives might bring a speedup that makes it worth it, if your motherboard supports that.
