1. Shutdown the system
2. Press the Fn+Power button together
3. The screen will display color screens

SOURCE: DVDRW will not read CDs
1)right clik on my computer
clik on cdrom
uninstall it then re-install it
after reinstall try using the drive
2)update windows ,use custom and see if it finds an updated driver,if it does or doesnt update windows anyhow.
after you restart the computer try using the rom drive.
if that doesnt work;
go buy a cd/dvd rom cleaning disk at your local electronics store and use it.
if all this doesnt work;
buy a new rom drive

Try to use dvd cleaner disk to clean the lens, if it doesnot work, i think you have to replace your drive , this happens with Dell alot. but try to clean it, uninstall then install the driver back and check if its work.

Try opening the dvd software prior to inserting the disk. Did you try a DVD that you see will work in another DVD player?
