Ze4365us will not boot from cd


If your laptop will not recognise any cd or dvd that you put into it - a music or movie dvd- it's probably the actual dvd drive at fault. It means that you will have to replace the optical drive for your computer model. This is quite easy to do.

Before buying a new optical drive, try a last-throw solution. Remove the optical drive and power up the computer. Then switch it off. Refit the optical drive and power up the computer, which may detect the refitted optical drive.

However, if you mean that your laptop will recognise the information on a dvd - such as a Windows operating system - but won't boot up from it when you restart the computer it's probably because the computer is set up to set up to boot from the hard drive first.

To change the boot-up order press either DEL of F2 at start up. Go into the bios settings and look for 'boot up sequence'. You'll be able to change the first boot to dvd or usb.

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.

Help my dvd drive is stuck and wont open


Desktop or Laptop computer wasn't stated.

With most desktop computer optical drive's there is a tiny hole located right under the optical drive tray.
(The tray the disk is inserted in)
A paper clip is straightened out, then inserted into the hole.
This is a manual override, and will open the tray.

There are some desktop computer optical drives, that the computer case has a door that flips down, then the optical drive tray comes out.
The door must be eased down far enough to see if the optical drive has the small hole.

With a laptop computer the optical drive is removed from the laptop.

Generally there is one small Philips head screw that is removed from the bottom side of the laptop, then the optical drive tray is opened with the paper clip, and the optical drive is then removed by using the tray as a handle.
The optical drive is then pulled straight out.

Once out the top cover is removed for access to the disk.

If this information is not what you seek, or you would like it explained, please post in a Comment, and we'll work together on finding a solution.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop, which has a locked BIOS. Dell have been unable to redolve this problem (the security codes didn't work) If I replace the MB myself, will the security still be active for...


In my past experience, motherboard passwords haven't locked access to the HDD or ODD. They have just limited the motherboard from accessing these things. So by replacing the mobo you should be okay as there would no longer be any restriction on these devices.

How do I remove a cd-rom from a hp dv5


1) Work on a table.

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

3) Turn the laptop over Front facing you. There is one single Philips head screw to remove.
It's on the bottom of the laptop towards the Front, and is just past the Microphone, and Headphone jacks.

4) Screw removed use a paper clip to open the optical drive tray.
The paper clip is straightened out, then a third of it is bent into a handle to hang onto.

Looking at the optical drive with the laptop upside down, there is a small hole to the Left, on the optical drive tray. Insert the paper clip tool you just made into the hole.
This is a manual release to open the optical drive tray.

Hold onto the optical drive tray with your fingers, pull the optical drive out.

If you are going to replace the optical drive, be sure to remove the optical drive bracket from the back of the optical drive. (Two Philips screws) Install the bracket on the new optical drive.

I have a dell inspiron 1525 laptop and my cd/dvd drive has been corrupted and is missing and now i cant play movies or cds and it happened two months ago wat do i do


The CD, CD-RW, DVD, DVD-RW, Blu-Ray and any other drive that uses a laser to read data from a CD. In general, most optical drive problems can be resolved by:
  • Updating the optical drive firmware
  • Updating the burning software
  • Updating the DVD playback software
  • Updating the computer's video driver in cases of video playback issues
  • Updating the computer's audio driver in cases of audio playback issues
To download the Firmware of your machine click here. i have selected the default 1525 but if you click on enter the service tag, it will give you your computer's firmware. or you can check it in device manager as well.
you can also try deleting the upper and lower filters. in regedit.

in vista. click on start /type regedit in start search.
then continue the action and then click on the +HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE / + SYSTEM / +CURRENT CONTROLSET / +CONTROL /+ CLASS /+ {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} and on the right side look for upper filters or lower filters and delete them. and then restart the computer. it should fix this.

in case the issue is not resolved. you might need to get the optical drive replaced.

if this information was helpful. please rate the solution.

Dell 1525 can read CD but does not read DVD


Hi, If your Dell 1525 has got a CDROM drive or CD Burner/Writer then you can only Read and Write the CD's

But if you got a DVD optical Drive then you can Read CD and DVD too...

If you need more clarifications on the same, pls send me the Service Tag of your computer. ( you can find it underneath the laptop)

No internal hard disk found after laptop is closed?


Hi,
To fix this problem you would need to try this.
*Run the psa test
1. press the 'fn' key and power key together, it will automatically launch a diagnostic test, follow the onscreen instructions confirm if it comes with any error code (it should come up with 0141 error code if it is a hard drive problem).
2. check the hard drive status in bios (check if it is being detected).To do this you would need to switch on the laptop and start tapping F2 key (multiple times, especially at dell logo). this will lead you to bios. using the down errow key on the keyboard, go to device info and check the first option on the right hand side (primary hard drive). confirm if it is detecting the hard drive or it says none or unknown.
3. Remove the optical drive by following the link (support.euro.dell.com) and check if it works after removing the optical drive. This is because optical drive can cause the hard drive not to work properly as they are interconnected with each other.
Once you have performed the above steps, confirm so that I can suggest you the rest of the steps accordingly.

Regards,
Musheer.
