These are two different problems...
1. most likely you have loaded too many programmes in the startup...uninstall the unwanted programmes...and clean the registry by registry cleaner.... clean your c drive or the drive in which OS is loaded by system tool...disc cleanup (in accessories)

2. increase your RAM if you still want to use all the programmes you have loaded.

3. Use a cd rom cleaner disc to see it the rom stars reading...or else you will have to replace the CD Rom

My computer will not play my CD's anymore. I'll place the CD in the drawer, it closes, and there are a few green light flickers like it's getting ready to do something and nothing at all happens.


If you have a Windows OS, you may have an issue with Autorun being disabled or no default program being associated with the CD. (To check open the File Explorer and see if the optical drive lists any content. Press the Windows key and E simultaneously (or double-click on the Computer/My Computer icon for Windows versions before Windows 8).) I will note that some Windows 8 computers will query a user about how to respond to a disc with a message that disappears before you notice it.

If no disc is listed, try using a cleaning disc to clean the lens. If you still get no response, check if the discs work in another computer. If they do, consider replacing the optical drive. (The drives do fail. Since a new internal OEM DVD burner will cost ~$20 for a standard desktop (SATA interface), they aren't worth fixing. Slim drives for laptops and ultra-small form factor desktops cost a little bit more.) If your computer is older and uses IDE (40-pin for desktop, 44-pin for laptops) ribbon cables, the drives cost more. There are adapters that will work in some desktops.

If the disc is listed, double-click on the optical drive listing. See if you get a response from double-clicking a file on the disc. If that is the case, then Autorun for CDs has been disabled on the computer. Go to the Control Panel and then select the Programs section. (Start > Control Panel for Windows 7 and earlier; for Windows 8, press Windows key+ X and select the Control Panel or activate the Charms menu (Windows key +C) or hover on the upper right side of your monitor and drop down. Choose Settings and then Control Panel). Select the Default Programs and then the change AutoPlay settings. Scroll down to set the defaults for CDs. Click Save to make sure the setting holds. You may have to reset the AutoPlay settings at intervals. (There was some issues with malware on external storage that caused Microsoft to decide to disable AutoPlay for user "protection".)

If double-clicking on the file doesn't work, try right-clicking and choose Open With. Then search for a program that will play your music. You can set this program for future use from the default programs section of the Programs Control Panel. (Use the Associate file type with a program or Set Program Access and Computer Defaults links.)

I hope this helps.

The disc tray wont close


Try removing the CD-ROM drive from Device Manager and restarting the computer so that it will find the driver again and re-install it automatically.

Otherwise I'd explore getting a new drive. They are very cheap these days.

I dont have a laptop or the same computer but I have the same problem. However my problem is even more painful as my computer wont frickin recognize my keyboard. So I cant enter BIOS or boot the Windows...


You're not using a wireless keyboard that could have a "dead" battery inside????

Check that the keyboards (PS/2 and USB) work in some other desktop computer.

Disconnect the disk-drive's "data" cable.

Hold down any key on the keyboard, and then turn your computer on, hoping to generate a "keyboard error; press any key to enter BIOS setup" message.
Now, does the keyboard work?

Insert the Windows CD-ROM.
Startup your computer, and it should boot from the CD-ROM (since the disk-drive is not accessible).

Eventually, it will "pause", and ask for keyboard input.

Try each keyboard, and see if either keyboard works.

If not, then your motherboard is the cause of your problems, and needs to be replaced.

DDW-081 CD\DVD Recorder can't read CD


It is possible for your optical drive to read only DVDs and not CD. This is most likely a fault with your drive and may need a repair or replacement.

DVD's reading and writing problems


Two things you can check. First, whenever you burn a DVD or CD you must be sure to "close" or "finalize" the disc. Often this is done automatically, but double-check to make sure. If the disc was left "open" so that more files could be added later then it will probably only play on the computer that burned it. Second, there are some DVD drives that just won't read every type of recordable disc. Ask your friend to burn a DVD-R instead of a DVD+R and try to play it on your computer. Or, check if his DVD+R recording plays OK on other computers. If so, your DVD drive may be faulty and need replacing. Good luck.
