Question about PC Laptops

1 Answer

Dvd rom Hi TampaN, I have a compaq nx9010 laptop with a toshiba sd c2612 dvd rom. I am using windows xp professional 5.1 sp2. Since I have reinstalled the windows,the dvd rom does not work properly. If I put any kind of discs into the drive it would recognize as an audio cd with some kilobytes of size. I tried plenty type of Windows install but none of them worked,and plenty modes of driver and firmware updates but all of them were in vain. I have read about this at the microsoft home page(DMA and PIO settings)but I have not understood.. There were a computerist-as you-who found a solution one year ago. He installed and made some changes at the windows,and worked well. Unfortunately I had to reinstall the xp last week but I can not make a contact with that computerist anymore. I am looking forward to hearing from you Thank you Lazlo

    Hi there,

    Thank you for your respond!

    Unfortunately none of them works.
    I tried both way,but nothing changed.
    I forgot to tell you that the dvd rom is working in DOS mode,so I can boot from the device.
    Just when the Windows has been started up it does not work.

    Hell :D ...
    I changed the secondary IDE channel to PIO from DMA...
    And works again the dvd-rom.

    Anyway

    Thank You :)

Hello

To isolate the issue please perform following steps.

Click Start and select Run . In the Run box type devmgmt.msc and press enter. This will open Device Manager.

Click on + sign next to CD/DVD drive and right click on all the devices listed unde CD/DVD drive and select uninstall. Then restart the notebook. This will automatically install CD/DVD drive drivers. This should resolve the issue. However, if the issue persists please download and install following dougnox patch if you are using XP operating system.

Can't access CD


If you mean the drive won't open then
Turn off computer
Locate a small hole in DVD drive lid.
Carefully insert a straightened paper clip.
Gently push & the lid should pop out.
Then you can open the drive & remove the CD
Restart the computer and see if it opens normally and reads dvd's now.

If you mean Windows won't read it then the drivers may need re-installing. Check in hardware manager to see if Windows recognizes it or shows an error for it.

After I reinstalled my pc, the toshiba dvd-rom (sd-c2502) only plays cds, not dvds.


Try re-installing your the driver for your dvd rom. Then try to put different dvds and check if it can read from your drive. If problem remains, I suspected it's your dvd rom is faulty

Need driver for 8x dvd drive for thinkpad


When a properly inserted and working drive is connected, it is automatically discoveredand installed. Specific drivers are not necessary or available. I will assume you are not talking about a DVD viewer application?

If the OS does not discover the drive, then the drive is likely defective, or not properly connected.

Non-system disk or disk error


Is you cd-rom drive shot - are you trying to boot up your computer through an xp or windows cd? If it is, it's not going to recognize and boot up. You'd be best getting a new drive - look around for someone with a Compaq Evo 800cp. They have the same exact cd-rom drive. Here are your compatible cd-rom devices:
TEAC DW-224E-A
or a Compaq DVD-ROM DRN-8080B
otherwise try a HP SD-C2612. I have these three drives. They all work really well.

Get into the bios setup at start screen. Put as a first boot your cd/dvd rom. save and exit/restart. Get the xp SP2 and download avast antivirus. The first thing you have to do before browsing anywhere else. EXECUTE THE SETUP, install, RESTART and have fun..
