I have a laptop which is compaq 510, now here's my problem... my cd-rom is not functioning very well....i have tried cleaning it by using disk cleaning.... but then it some cd's can't play... i...


Cleaning the CD-ROM drive's lens using the cleaning disc is sometimes not enough. In your case, you need to clean the lens by wiping it with a dry cotton lint free cloth. If you have a lens cleaning liquid from the CD disc cleaning kit, you can moisten the cloth with a drop of that liquid. Then, you should gently wipe the lens with this cloth.
After this is done, test your CD-ROM drive. If you still experience the same problems, then you will need to replace the whole CD-ROM drive.

Cd rom makes clicking noise and ejects cd


THis happens because (a) the disk you entered is scratched, or not a recognised format or (b) your cd rom is broken. try insertin another disk. if the problem persists, try cleaning it. if all else fails, buy a new drive.

My laptop won't boot from cd


to reset the BIOS, there is a small battery somewhere in your computer. if you unplug it for 3 seconds, it will reset the BIOS. I RECOMMEND THAT YOU DO NOT TRY THIS! get a service professional. If this doesn't work you might need to get a new laptop.

Cd rom wont write to disc,can this be fixed?


Its not a terminal problem but an issue with your CDWRITER or the application you use in performing CD Writing

CHECKLIST
1. Make sure you are using a Blank Empty CD

SOLUTIONS
1. Try formating the Blank disks from Windows Explorer and not from the utility software
2. Check your CDWRITER settings (usually problems do not arise from here) you could set the settings default.

Are there any error messages when trying to write data on the CD?

I can not be abel to read writed CD


These discs that are written on other systems, were they finalized or are they multi-sessions discs that have been left open? Some drives have difficulty dealing with multi-session discs created by other drives. By telling it it is OK to format the CD, it is writing a new TOC (Table of Contents) that is blank since it did not see anything on the disc previously (so it didn't know there was anything to carry over from previous sessions). Now all other drives that try to read this disc are now reading an empty TOC and figure it is a blank CD.

You can try writing a disc on another computer and making sure it finalizes it, then try reading it with your laptop. You can also try to burn data to a CD on your laptop making sure the disc is finalized and try to read it on another computer to verify these suspicions.

The cd burner on my hp laptop doesn't work properly.


There could be are various reason's for there.

1. The CD you insert is not blank or re-writetable
2. The CD is blank but its not the correct format (CD, DVD)
3. And worse case is the CD Drive is not a burner.

Hope this helps.

Cd-rom has write in different format


try a CD or DVD from a different package to make sure your CDs were not defective,
try to use your cd on a fairly new pc, if it is seen as empty your dvd writer is broken and has to be replaced. it's cheap about 20$
You only need to take it out and see if it has a IDE(large) or SATA(smaller) connector to replace it with one that has the same connector.
