First open the "Device Manager" to check for any error messages related to the device and click on "Start" and select "Control Panel" .

Now double-click on the "System" icon then click on the "Hardware" tab and click the "Device Manager" button. A new window appears, and displays whether the device is working properly. If there are any errors, click the "Troubleshoot" button and follow the given onscreen instructions.

Check the DVD that you are trying to use to and ensure that it is free of dirt and scratches and the proper format compatible with your drive.

Now uninstall any drivers that may be on your computer from previous DVD drives.

Now download the latest driver updates for your DVD drive model from Dell website & install it.

Also check on Dell website that your machine has the minimum requirements to operate the drive.

Now restart your computer & check your DVD drive.
I hope issue has been resolved.

Dell latitude c840 slows same time fans come on, approx. 4-5 minutes after start-up. Ran laptop in cool, not cold environment; no noticable improvement.


have the unit cleaned out good...if problem still exist your laptop may be on its way out

the slow down is due to a drop in power available to the processor, and this can damage it beyond repair.

My dvd plays cd but not dvds


Try using a good quality dvd cleaner first. If that does not fix the problem then it is an optics issue for the dvd & it would be cheaper to replace the drive than to try & have it fixed. Hope this helps.
