When you open my computer do you see the drive in the window? If the drive does not show up in this window you can check two things, check to be sure that the cable connecting the drive to the mother board is good. And the other issue could be that the drive itself has gone bad. If it is unable to read any cd's then you probably need a new drive. Be sure to put in several cd's to be sure it is not the cd disk.
This means that your CD-rom drive does not read the CD, it could be
that the CD is a different format (DVD, for example) or the
lens is dirty or Your drive is faulty. see if your drive is compact or
dvd and try the right formats. Try clean your CD-drive lens. If all
this does not fix the problem, your drive is faulty. And needs repair.
Hi, That sound to me like a defective dvdrw because it can't read the dvd an try to re read and re read and lock the computer until you take it out.
Tools: + Small screwdriver -- Small screwdriver
Buy a new or used dvdrw for laptop, first take out the laptop battery. Locate the two screws at bottom of your laptop, take them out, whit a paper clip open the dvdrw from a small hole in front of it, pull the defective dvdrw out, if the front plastic face plate is diferent from yours you can change them using a small - screwdriver (be carefull). If you dvdrw have a smalls canals at sides in your defective dvdrw take them out and put them in the new one two, Install the new dvdrw by slowly pushing in to the dvdrw hole until it take its place, put the two screw drivers back + the battery and you shuold be on your way. Let us know. Obed
