Go into your bios and make sure that your cd drive is the FIRST BOOT device. Then load the dvd and run a startup repair.

Dell Inspiron 1501 laptop will not play or burn cd's or dvd's. Makes clicking sound


the CD drive's read head is broken.
you will need to replace the entire drive. it is very easy to do however.

a replacement drive will set you back $20-40 USD and can be purchased from most computer hardware stores.

here is a YOUTUBE video purporting to show exactly how to replace it on your model of Dell. how convenient!

go into device manager and see if your drive is listed or has an exclamation point beside it.if you dont know how to open device manger go to start menu and click help and search device manager.if there is an exclamation point ! click it and it will tell you the problem.you may need to download a new driver or reinstall the old driver. the only other possibility is the drive is dead :(

Hi,
Try going to the drive, in my computer ** should be named CD/DVD Or D: E: right click and press eject. Alternatively:-
if you look carefully at the dvd drive, it has a small pinhole in the front drawer. push a paper-clip sized piece of metal, or small jewellers screwdriver into the hole, this will force the drawer open.
