You might have to go to the BIOS of your computer to ensure your drive is recognised. Once it shows there, make sure you change the Drive as your first boot device.

CD DVD Rom not found


If your drive is showing in the BIOS and you are able to boot from it using a bootable disc then the following should resolve the problem:

Always backup your registry before editing and use care to find exact key!
Start Registry Editor (Start, Run and type in regedit then click)

Find "UpperFilters" and "LowerFilters" (and "UpperFilters.bak" "LowerFilters.bak", if they exist) value under the following key in the registry, and delete it:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

Quit Registry Editor.

Reboot.

NOTE: You might need to reinstall any CD recording apps you have, if they start to not work completely, after doing this.

Dell laptop DVD_Rom not detected


well evidently you have a software problem, otherwise your dvd unit is broken, but lets hope not and try this:

you surely have the recovery CD or DVD that comes with your laptop and if you are clueless at computers you have to play attention on the following:

first is to ensure your unit is working and tha can be done by booting from any bootable CD. Just enter the bios if necessary, set the machine to boot first from cd and next from hd... then start with any bootable disc that you know is working. Windows installing disc can be, laptop recovery can be too... if it works now you know the problem is on the operative system and you need to focus on that.

try going to systems properties, then go to the exclametory sign and go properties with right button, navigate that options and if you are shown, ensure to enable DMA access mode. If you cant do this, just uninstall that device by clicking on the right button and selecting unninstal... and then do the same with any devices related to cds and ide devices... finally reboot your system and let windows put all that bach in place.

If this doesnt help you you might need to reinstall OS, so either backup your files and restart using the cd that comes with your computer or get back with more precise information, because yours is a very generic problem and many things can cause that.
