Question about Dell Dimension 9150 (DIM915MIN) PC Desktop
I have a dell dimension 9150 and find that both dvd drive and cd drive will not read some CD's while reads others. Some dvd's it reads intermittently. Any ideas?
Since it can read some disks them something as simple as cleaning the lens and/or the disks would be a great place to start. You can also check your connections inside, be sure the IDE cable is secure. If that dose not fix it I would replace the drive. There cheap and go bad.

Tips for a great answer:
Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders
This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.
If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete
After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer
Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.
