Hello.. I need some help. I am using toshiba satellite a1O system unit..my laptop was fyn till nw..all of a sudden windows doesnt load..when i turn the power on, the toshiba logo is shown..then black...


Hello
First thing you do is to see what hard disc installed in your laptop. You can check that by checking it in your bios system. To check in your bios system first turn off your computer then press delete while your laptop is booting up. Then you will see if there is a hard disk detected in your lap top if there is a detected hard drive this means you have a problem in your windows installed in your lap top.
There is also a reason why those message appear if the first boot of your laptop is the CD/DVD ROM. Check you CD/DVD ROM if there a CD inside this may the first on to read while the laptop booting up. Remove the cd inside your CD/DVD ROM. Then restart your laptop. Check your hard disk connector it may have some loose contact thats why your laptop did not recognize the hard disc.
Hope this can help keep on touch with fixya. Hope to hear some testimonial from you. . .

The Samsung CD-Rom SC148A on my Dell Dimension 2400 won't recognize any discs that I insert. Device Manager says there's nothing wrong with it, the driver is up-to-date, troubleshooting provided nothing,...


It might be dirt on the pickup lens, and you can try cleaning it. The best way to do that is to take the drive out, remove the cover and use a cotton swab moistened with lens cleaning solution. The cleaning discs you can buy aren't usually effective. But if you're going to go through all that effort, you may as well just replace the drive. If dirt isn't the problem, the most likely cause is that the laser power has dropped too low for the discs to be read, or the pickup has failed. In that case, you'll need to replace the drive anyway. A new CD-RW/DVD-RW drive is only around $20 (or something equally inexpensive in your local currency), and it's easy to change the drive, so it's really not worth worrying about trying to repair this one.

Cd rom drive reads some cd's and not others


If those other discs are working in other cdrom drives then you could have a dirty cdrom drive, a laser failure, or it could be a firmware problem in that drive. Check the mfr's website for any firmware updates first. If that should fail, then you will need to replace the drive.

What's happening inside is, you have a laser inside that bounces a beam off the disc and receives the beam into a buffer. The beam scans for and detects "Pits" and "plateaus" on the surface of the disc (it's kinda like morse code on a plastic disc.) and the dots and dashes reflect into the buffer.

If you cannot read a disc, that means the laser is having trouble with either:
1. emitting the beam,
2. targeting the tracks where the pits and plateaus are or
3. receiving the beam into its buffer

SOMETIMES a burned disc is harder to read by a standard reader, but not often. Most times it is a sign of dirt on the buffer receiver, dirt on the lens, or inability to scan the tracks. Try using a cdrom lens cleaner, and update the drive firmware. if that doesnt help you, you need a new drive.

Wont read disc


Hello there... Sony seems a choosy brand so it looks like your disc is not recognized by it. Check also your disc for scratches or you just need to clean your disc first before you can use it. Try it. If this doesn't help, try inserting your disc to other CD-ROM. See if your disc is okay. Hope this helps...

CD drive wont read on my brand new e627


Hello, Jennifer.

Since you just purchased the emachine two days ago and already there is a problem, I would suggest that you either return the computer to where you purchased (most place have a 7-day return policy) or contact emachines. Here the link to emachine's Customer Care: http://www.emachines.com/support/warranty.html

I suspect that the CD drive is faulty and should be replaced.

Hope this helps.

CD/DVD drive stuck CLOSED and NO pin hole


Use my computer and select the drive (eg drive E:). From pull down menu "File" select "eject". While the disk door attempts to open (hear slight movement of tray) massage the door with your fingers. This is done by smoothing out the across front door panel with your finger tips and pushing in and releasing pressure from door. Door should slide open partially and close again. Repeat. The eject button nearside the disc tray doesn't seem to work as well as selecting "File" and "Eject" from the menu. Something to do with the door cycle is less with the direct eject button.

CD RW/ DVD RW Drive Will not read and Burned discs or burn to blank discs


I suggest a firmware update from Toshiba. If this does not help then your laser in the drive is no longer capable of this task. Also just thought about it but make sure the media that you are burning to is the same as the drive + or - R's
