Ok I think for sure that you are missing a CD driver. You installed XP. XP runs fast but it sucks when it comes to doing stuff automatically for you. All you need to do is google "dell drivers download" and find the dell website. look for you model. and then download the driver.
you can see which drivers you are missing by going to control panel and search for device manager.
I'm pretty sure thats what it is called.
good luck. please rate as I need ratings thanks

My dell studio 1555 is not reading cd's except it makes a weird noise and the cd becomes lodged in the drive . after some prying its possible to pull it out


Hello,
First off, you might need your windows operating system disc. 1. Turn on your laptop 2. Start tapping on F2 once you see the Dell Logo 3. Once your inside BIOS go to Boot options or Boot menu 4. Change the boot priority, make the CD the top priority. 5. Once you're done with step 5, insert the operating system disc into your CD/DVD drive 6. Press F10 (Save and Exit). The laptop will then restart. 7. Check if it will boot from the OS disc, if it does, then there's no problem with your optical drive. If it did not boot from the operating system disc, then there's a big chance that your CD/DVD drive is already broken.
Note : if you're not satisfied with the steps above, you might want to try 2 operating system discs. You don't have to install them on the laptop, we just need to use it to verify if the CD/DVD drive is already broken and needs to be replaced.
With my experience as a technical support, usually this kinds of symptoms(the things that you mentioned) says that the DVD drive is already broken or defective.
Hope this helps!

I have dell studio-15 and lately the CD/DVD drive continously ejects any CD/DVD without reading it. It cannot be read. I cannot write onto any CD/DVD either.


1. Try to boot to your computer using the Operating system disk see if the OS disk ejects try step 2

2. Try to go to the BIOS by tapping F2 upon boot see if the cd/dvd drive ejects

3. The reason for this if the problem is reoccuring outside of windows then the problem is mechanical and cd/dvd drive needs to be replaced

4. Else we need to do Operating System Reinstall or format the hard drive




Thank you for choosing

My dell studio laptop (one month old) has problems playing dvds


It sounds like you have eliminated a media player problem.

Here are some more things you could try:

Disable your antivirus when playing the movie.

Have Dell replace CD/DVD drive. I got a bad drive in my new Latitude and they replaced it. It was a long phone call...be prepared.

It could be overheating. Make sure you have good air flow under the notebook. They make notebook coolers which you can find with a web search.

If this helps please vote for my solution.

your ODD, Optical Disc Driver, have optic component for read your disc. May be your optic broken. Buy new one. Make sure first, you rent some DVD movies, and play to your ODD. And open some softwares, like a PowerDVD.

Sony NEC OptiArc can't read but can write!!!


Try to play the cd that you have wrote with other machine if it was able to read with other machine then your dvd is faulty.

If it cannot play with other machine, then there is a problem with the software that you use in cd writing or the dvd rom drive. Try to re-install both drivers, then play a cds.

How to boot from external hard disk plsss help


You could setup a dual boot system, this requires a fairly large hard disk and you need installation XP and Vista CDs.
The other option is to install XP only on your hard disk.
