Question about Dell Inspiron Desktop with Intel Pentium Processor

1 Answer

I have a Dell Inspiron 537s desktop. A CD fell from its bay into the CD drive of the computer and is still in there. The CD bay stays out and the door of the drive doesn't close. I opened the hard drive but am not able to remove the CD drive from it.

Seems like some of the particles from the broken CD have remained inside. For manually opening up the drive there is a small hole in which you can insert a straightened paper clip. The drive bay will budge a little and you can pull it out manually. Secondly maybe the belt driving the open/close system has gone weak. Try tapping ******* top of the drive right after pushing the eject button. After you have got it opened i suggest you remove the drive from the PC and do a detailed cleanup by completely dismantling the drive.

My Dell Inspiron 537s stopped working and won't turn on. There is a green light in the back when I plug it in, but the power button in the front does nothing. I am assuming it is the power supply, but...

The only way to determine if the power supply is no good without replacing it is to get a Volt Meter and test the Output on the current Power Supply. If you are getting the correct Output Voltage (correct Output Voltage may vary from computer to computer) then it is not the power supply, but if you are getting a 0V then your power supply might be damaged or blown a fuse, or just simply dead.

You can try to see if you can buy a power supply with a return policy just to see if that fixes the issue.

Wull not play commercial DVD on DVD player installed

Some viruses disable removable drives, so be sure that your antivirus is current an you have done a complete scan.

If it recognizes that it is a DVD, the software might have to be reinstalled. You can try opening the DVD player manually, it may recognize it then. There are several firmware updates on the dell site for the DVD drives.

Try booting the computer with a restore disk (just abort if it actually starts). If the drive does not recognise dvds (on boot and if you open the computer icon and see if the disk shows up) as a last resort before replacement, you might try a commercial drive cleaner.
