CD rom drive not working

I have a Gateway MT6452 Notebook
Its been running fine, but i discovered that my CD drive isn't working. The drive isn't listed in MY COMPUTERS. However, under device manager the driver Optiarc DVD RW AD-7530 ATA Device that is listed under the driver has an exclamation mark next to it. It has that Error code 10 (This device cannot start.) message. Windows isn't giving me the right solution. I tried updating it but vista looks for the driver. I tried checking all over the web to find a solution, even gateway website does not list how to fix this. please help. thanks

I have Inspiron 530 running Vista and just experienced loss of CD Rom Drives.
Check; Click Computer / System properties/ Device Manager/ DVD/CD rom Drives Then Right click and view properties. It will probably say Error Code 10. (Icon at DVD / CD Rom drive shows a small yellow exclamation mark.

I then phoned Dell and spent 1 hour trying to fix. (Unable to do so )

I previously had Epson Printer and HP scanner which ran on XP no problem.
I have tried loading them on to new Vista and the printer works but cannot find drivers for scanner to run it on vista.
I have just uninstalled Printer and scanner and YES my CD/DVD ROM drives have reappeared and are working fine.

I think the problem was by loading the HP disc onto my new computer.

My CD/DVD drive on Gateway M460 laptop only works after I recover my computer to an earlier date. It tries to run, but cannot actually bring up the CD. After I recover, it works fine until the next ti


good thing is it seems like a software fault not hardware, when it isn't working check to see if the drivers are still there and if they are updated. something may be deleting the drivers for the device like a virus. so there may be a program that you use after you recover that sends it to **** again. Download Avast! antivirus and use that, best protection around.

To check to see if the DVD/CD has the drivers click start -> right click computer -> click manage -> (wait for screen to load) click on device manager and navigate to the cd/dvd rom drive. you can manage the drivers from there and update, locate the driver and backup, rollback drivers etc..

Look at removing the upper and lower filters from the CD drive on Windows, Microsoft has a guide here

CD Rom drives don't have drivers as such, so the drivers you need are for your motherboard. If the drive has failed, you can get any DVD drive that has the same kind of connector (parallel IDE) and replace it.

Difficulty to open cd rom o my pc how to solve?


Repairing your Optical Drive problem isn’t that difficult task.

Unfortunately you have failed to prove the Manufacturer Name and Model Number of your particular specific CD-ROM Optical Drive so I am unaware of what particular specific CD-ROM Optical Drive information to provide.

However if you use Google Search (http://www.google.com) and search the topic Repair CD-ROM you will be able to obtain information on how to disassemble and repair your specific CD-ROM Optical Drive. Examples of a Google Search are provided below ->

http://www.repairfaq.org/sam/cdfaq.htm

http://repair4laptop.org/notebook_op...cd_dvd_mo.html

http://www.repairfaq.org/REPAIR/F_cdfaq9.html

The most difficult part of the repair will be finding the correct size replacement 0-Ring that fits your particular specific CD-ROM Optical Drive. You could try checking with local Computer Repair Shops and see if the have a broken CD/DVD Optical Drive that has the correct size 0-Ring that might work in your particular specific CD-ROM Optical Drive.

On another note now days Optical Drives are inexpensive and you can obtain a replacement CD/DVD Optical Drive for less than 30 bucks.
Hope it helped you. Thanks.

If you replace the HDD, there is no reason why system hung up. try cleaning your memory cause on that case i can pinpoint that memory something wrong. try cleaning memory fixed it again, if your don't mind maybe you need to replace the memory.

if the same happen, try examine CD Disc or your cd rom drive cannot read the files on the disc.

(Option solution)Examine your motherboard after clear prove that the above solution is not working. i can assure u that main board is good. if ever it was damage that causes overheating.

Replacing dvd/cd-rom drive on gateway laptop


Depends - what gateway? the one you listed under?? Because the model you posted with already came with a DVD drive.

Reply with the model of your machine and i can probably find you help. Gateway usually has instructions on their site.

The instructions for the M305CRV are here.

That model can use pretty much any standard laptop CD if you dont mind the face not matching get a generic drive like the Sony CRX880a at
