Question about Dell (Y4081) CD-RW/DVD-ROM (Combo) Burner

1 Answer

I have a dell inspiron 1319 laptop. This just happened randomly: When I pushed my DVD into the DVD drive on the side, I hear these two short sounds before it completely ejects my DVD back out. I'm really bewildered as to why its doing that. I pressed the eject touch button (when there was no DVD) to make sure there wasn't anything inside my drive and there wasn't. PLEASE HELPP!P!!!

    I did try to use a audio cd before and it still ejected. How would I be able to free it up? Do i just unscrew the back of my laptop and do it?

The drive has locked up and if you remove it, you may be able to free it up,Try to use a regular audio cd and see if you have the same problem,if so the drive is locked up and needs replaced or freed up.

My videos keep skipping on my Inspiron laptop. How can I fix it? Easy instructions, please.


1) Remove ALL power to the laptop. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery.

2) Lay a towel on a table, lay the laptop upside down on it.

3) Look to the side with the optical drive. (DVD drive)
Remove the single Philips screw which holds the optical drive in the laptop.
Use the tool to push on the notch where the screw was, and push the optical drive out.

Replace the optical drive.

When i turn on my dell 1501 laptop, the screen reads,''remove media device, push any key to restart'', but nothing else happens?


Take out the dvd drive from your laptop. Then turn it on and see if the messages goes away, If it does then go ahead and turn off the laptop and reseat the drive back into the laptop. Then turn it on and if the message reappears then it could be that the dvd drive is bad and would need to be replaced.

A kind of sound is coming from left side of touchpad in my new dell inspiron 1545 laptop problem:


Hi i'm Rain.
Ok there are only 3 sounds you will here from your computer laptop.
  1. You will hear the fan running.
  2. You will hear the HardDrive running.
  3. You will hear a CD-rom drive running. Wheather its a DVD or CD-RW.
You will need to turn it over and listen from the bottom.If there is venting then more than likely its the fan.
If its where the Media drive like i mentioned {DVD/CD-rom}. Then thats your sound. If the sound is coming from an area that you can't visually see something that it could be.
Then its your hard drive. To resolve the problem you will need to first locate and name the item that is making the sound. Follow the steps i have given you and locate the source of the sound.

Dell inspiron 1300 does not switch on


try unseating and reseating the memory one stick at a time in each slot one at a time and try turning on the laptop after each stick reinsertion.

If this doesn't do it then take out the hard drive and dvd drive then turn on ht laptop.

If after all of these steps you still don't get video then the motherboard is bad.

My Dell Inspiron 700 laptop with Windows XP suddenly will not boo


Remove the hard drive, then see if you can boot to the XP CD. If you can, then the Hard DIsk Drive has most likely failed. Reseat the HDD and try booting to CD again. If problem comes back, try a new hard drive.

Lightly push on the side of the drive tray.
Works for me.
To re-install the drive.
1. Turn off the laptop.
2. Press the power button quickly then relese as this tells the laptop to detect the drives.

Blank screen with flashing curser in top left hand corner,


I need a little bit more info.

Do you have a floppy disk in the floppy drive? Remove it. Do you have a CD in the CD drive? Remove it and restart your notebook.

Put your ear on the left side of the track pad. Do you hear any clicking sounds? Do the same for the right side. Do you hear any clicking sounds? If you hear any clicking sounds, and it seems to be constant, you may have a failed hard disk drive.

Try these thing and let me know what happens. Binary Bob
