This is a common fault with the CD/DVD drives on N1020V laptops, we've had to replace the drives on around half the 30 laptops we had in use at one point. It's a hardware fault on the CD/DVD drive.

Will it read any CD or DVD or just not is particular one? If it is just this one, download the software directly from vendor website.

Laptop cd rom won't read discs


Buy a can of compressed air and give the inside bay a good blast, next! get a Q-Tip and rubbing alcohol and gently clean the laser lens, allow several minutes to dry, hopefully this will work, if not! CD driver must be replaced.

I cant instal levelone adapter wua-0614


You should install the supplied software on the CD-ROM before inserting the Wireless USB Adapter!
If you have any form of the wireless utility beforehand, please uninstall it.
The adapter will only work if you're using Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7 !

I have a netbook and no cd rom drive. what wireless router brand do i need to use?


technically you need no drive or software on you computer for this unless this is the computer you wish to manage the router with. you see you can still buy a new router and cable directly into it go to a web browser and type in 192.168.254.254 and this is generally the default html or web interface for the router. All changes you can make with software can be done from here as well. I would think you could buy any and just use the web interface instead of the software interface. That is what I do I toss all the software and use that interface when securing a client network or setting up a router for a client. Hope that helps you out.. Oh yes default username and password for most linksys routers will be admin / admin some are different but that info will be contained withing the literature that comes with it.

I have Gateway MX6214 and I reinstalled a clean Windows Xp OS, then the wireless adaptor is not recognized even after installing the drivers


I'm not sure what happened but we got disconnected somehow. What you want to do, seeing as you are using another laptop, is download the software from Gateway and save it onto a cd-rom. Insert the cd rom into the gateway, open the driver and install the driver onto the laptop. This should work. If it doesn't, let me know!

Inside your DVD rom is two heads I believe they are diamond both do the same things which is to read them. The CD head is poked (Broken). Try cleaning it with the proper solution. If its no go then the latter I am afraid stands!.
