    Satellite 1135-s155 laptop I have the same problem also. Device manager
    shows everything fine. i can eject it from my computer. I have the
    latest firmware updates. it shows up in the cmos and if I refresh the
    Rom window it blinks. i have installed all the drivers. i have been so
    far as to go to intell and reinstall all the chip drivers since it's
    controlled by one of their IDE drivers. I have all the codec's
    installed. I have pluged it in while xp was running and it pluged and
    played right in but still nothing Toshiba drivers



    Thx

Check the disk for scratches, and try other disks to make sure the problem is not unique to that one disk. If all disks fail, then double-click on My Computer, then double click on the CD-Rom drive and see if a CD will run. The "autorun" option may have been disabled, which is very noticeable if you've been used to this feature working. To re-enable autorun, right click on the cd-rom drive in My Computer, and go to device properties - recheck the autorun or autoplay option.

If none of the above resolve, then turn off your computer. Open up your computer with screwdriver. Unplug and replug the cd-rom driver. Restart computer. Test cd-rom drive again.

If it still fails, Make sure you are connected to the internet (I am assuming Windows XP - Vista may vary): Go to Start --> Control Panel --> Printers & Other Hardware --> System --> Hardware --> Device Manager --> DVD/CD Rom Drives - se if the drive has a yellow exclamation by it - if it does, then right click on the yellow exclamation, and click install drivers - windows will most likely find a solution

If all of the above fails, write back with more details, including model/manufatcurer of cd-rom drive, and model/manufatcurer of computer.

Just got second hand ferrari 1100 and it just has black screen?Used F8 to get the harddrive light and put CD in which is spinning but still black creen also tried external screen?HELP PLSE?


If your external monitor isn't working, it may be your graphics. You could open the case and search for loose connections or components. It's difficult to say without opening the laptop. Your specs say you have integrated graphics. What kind of noises? Is it coming from the HDD? the DVD rom?

Cd drive led light flashes orange four to five times then stops


Given all the things that you ahev done, clean the drive with a CD/DVD cleaner and / or air duster. Check the device is enabled in Device Manager and it shows no errors. If it does then read the explanation. If not and it looks OK you will most likely need a new drive!

Open your tower and reseat all the cables that are running to the CD ROM (generally a flat white cable). Also reseat the other end of the cable to the motherboard too.

Cd-rom drive


Hey Dale,

It sounds like there is an issue with the laser in the CD-ROM drive because it spins for 10 seconds trying to read the disk and stops because it cannot. If you try and put another disk in and it does this then the CD-ROM is bad. You can find replacements online for reasonable prices. You can also go to most electronic stores to purchase a replacement. They usually run around $30 dollars or less.

Thanks - Tech101
