If ur using XP it will not ask for any drivers for dvd drive.Once u put the cd into the drive if its light on the drive must blink and if continusly it blinks then it will be the problem with the drive, if not u just see whether system will boot from cd by bootable cd.

Dell OptiPlex 780 with Windows 7 does not play my cd's or dvd's and is missing from device manager

Sounds like a problem of non-detection by the system. If the drive is missing from My Computer then it definitely is a non-detection issue. Try using this file (it's an exe when unzipped) and only required double-clicking.

Computer want show my home movies or dvds im sure its a drive issue.

Most likely you don't have the correct CODEC that will play these files. Click on the link below, it is for a FREE media player that will play all media types including home made DVDs and dvds that would buy or rent, like at NetFlix. Just copy and paste the link to the browser address bar and download the file, click on the installer and select all for media types.

My PC doesn't produce sound from any file or program on internet, for example when I download Winamp media play it doesnt produce sound but you can see that the music is playing

First check you dont have a red line through your speaker on your toolbar. If so click it and "UN-mute it.

Open volume control.

When the box with all the sliders opens up click on OPTIONS (top left)

Make sure that Volume controls, Wave, SW Synth, CD PLayer, Line IN, and MIC all show on there and that the volume sliders are about half way up.

Make sure noe of the sliders have ticks at the bottom, if so UNTICK them.

If any of those are missing click options then properties from the top left and put a tick besides any that were missing (nothing else unles you know you want that item)

Now close the slider box.

Put a normal music cd in your cd/dvd player on the computer and set it to play with windows media player.

You should now have sound out of the speakers.
