I would start with B, reinstall drivers and DVD decoding software. If that doesn't do the trick then it's definitely C. Failed DVD with CD capability is a common problem.

Vidio cd working dvd is not working in the vinworth dvd player


Hi, first see whether some other DVD is recognized by your Drive or not. If it recognize and still not playing, then, the issue could be due to Codec.

you can download latest codecs from the below link:

If still, your DVD is not playable, then. I guess, the laser head in your drive is partly failed.

Thanks,
Shiva

You may use any CD/DVD drive lens cleaner to clean the lens as it may be that the lens in the CD/DVD drive is not able to recognize the disc due to accumulation of dust. Next, you may perform System Restore to the time when the CD/DVD drive operated normally. If the issue persists then you may try reinstalling the Operating System.
If the issue persists even after performing all the above mentioned steps then the issue may be Hardware related and the CD/DVD drive may require service.

My laptop is making a loud noise


Hi again.
It sounds to me that the PC is overheating, get a can of compressed air and give short blasts through the air vents and the CPU fan (located underneath the laptop) once your happy that all the dust has been blown out restart the PC and it should be quieter from then on.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

It can be that the sound card driver is not properly installed. You may check that on the Device Manager of your laptop. If it's not properly installed, it needs to be uninstalled from the Device Manager and reinstall it by using the driver installation CD that came with your laptop or you may download it on this link.

The link already contains the instructions on how to install the driver of the adapter.

CD / DVD player not listed as device on Windows Explorer


Try physically removing the player and fire up the laptop. Power down the laptop, replace the player and power back up. If that doesn't help, see if BIOS recognizes it.
If that doesn't work, get back to me.
