Check if you see the Icon in the My Computer window.
Also check if it has any exclation mark or Red X in the Device Manager. Right Click My Computer > Manage > Device Manager. If it has any exclamation mark or Red X it mean the Driver is not installer. If it is fine then try to use a bootable disk eg: Windows XP or 7 try to boot from the Disk.

Wont read discs


I would try giving the laser lens in side the CD drive a very gentle wipe with a cotton bud and alcohol first of all. This should be easy to access on most laptop designs, just press eject and you should be able to see and access the laser diode there in the CD tray.

My Toshiba Model L505-S5993 laptop won't read


Hello there,

The problem is that the Drives lens is already bad and cannot read any disc, no matter the type of disc you put into it, it wont read it still. The solution is to replace the drive. Replacing it is the best way to solve the problem. If not trying to replace the lens is going to be futile as the lens for the driver is not available and when you install a new disc drive, it will have to install the drivers software.

If you replace the lens, the laptop wont be able to install the drivers of the lens as it reads it alongside the driver itself and if they are not compatible, it wont install the drivers software. So my best advice is for you to replace the CD drive.

My laptop is a typical example because my disc drive is also bad. And i had to replace the drive and not the lens.

Hope this was helpful to you.
Goodluck

My pc wont read any cd


Most likely your CD-Rom either needs to be cleaned or replaced. Try running a regular CD player cleaning disc in the ROM. If this doesn't get it working correctly, then you will have to replace the CD-ROM or buy an external ROM that hooks up with a USB cable.

First clean the CD/DVD head by cd/dvd cleaner. If that doesnt work then probably you will need to get its read write head aligned or get the drive changed totally.

Dvd drive will not read burned discs


The laser is weak and its not burning discs properly to begin with. Get a new drive put in there and that will take care of the problem cause a new drive will have a new laser in it.

Acer aspire 5050 keeps looping the acer screen and shuts down


If the hard drive tested out ok (?) then I would burn a copy of memtest (free just google it) boot from it and test the memory. I would suggest though that the issue is the hard drive or possibly motherboard

Lexmark X2500 wont read on the computer (2008 HP Vista).


please try reinstalling the drivers. unplug the printer from the pc, reinstall drivers. restart pc before you plug the printer back in to the pc. after restart, plug printer back in. should work. do you have the install disc for the printer? If you do, and the first fix did not work, plaug the printer into the pc. Put the install disc into disc drive. if the autoplay is running it should ask you if you want to read the files on the disc, just close this window. Then go to START-RUN(type in) DEVMGMT.MSC and find the printer option. expan and right click on the little printer and choose "UPDATE DRIVER" it will then give an option to choose from updating from a specific location or install from a specific location. choose FROM A SPECIFIC LOCATION. another window will pop up with the choice to search from removable media ie floppy, cd etc, etc. choose that option if it hasnt already. It shouls all be automatic from her on out. Good luck.
