Hello Have you installed drivers for the computer and what do you mean with F: was it the CD rom drive? Are you sure its not there anymore? Maybe it has another letter? Lets check if there are any outstanding issues, hold down the windows kye and press R, in the run menu write msinfo32 and click ok on the right side, click open components, and from there click on Problem devices, if something comes up on the right, it means that drivers are not installed or there might be another issue, it will read on its details on the right.

    Okay, Please check the problem devices, as I told you in my first message.

Are you sure yours is a DVD player? It could only be a CD-CD writer, which will NOT play DVDs.
Open your control panel ->system->hardware->device manager and click on the DVD/CD-ROM drives icon. The listed devices will tell you if you really have a dvd player or not. If you do really have a dvd player, try a different dvd

My laptop doesnot recognize my dvd


Insert a cd and see if that works.
If it works, you may not have a dvd player.
If you know you have a dvd player, and the cd works, but dvd doesn't then it may be the drive.
Does it play anyother dvds or just the one doesn't work?
Try a cd cleaner (at the mart)
If it won't read any dvds then you may need to replace the drive.
Test to see if the driver is corrupt.
Open device manager.
Windows xp – Start button>run> type devmgmt.msc
Vista/Windows 7 – start button> in the search box type devmgmt.msc
Is there a ! on the drive. If there is uninstall and reinstall the driver.

I cant install windows update. I get error 80240016.


Backup your data files (external hard-drive or burn some DVDs).
Then, reinstall Vista -- much quicker than trying to "trouble-shoot".

1. Completely remove any dvd/cd player/burner softwares (i.e. Nero, Power DVD, etc.).
2. Go to device manager and remove your DVD/CD device from the device list
3. Restart you laptop
4. Windows will then try to reinstall the device drivers again for the DVD drive.
5. After another restart, then reinstall your dvd softwares again.
