If the drive door sticks after you have used the paper clip to open it, look under the tray at the drive teeth (if any). Apply a liberalm coating of general purpose grease to the rwo inches of teeth at the end of the drive tray nearest you and close the drive door again. Open and close a few times to see if the door is now free. This worked for me on my Dell Inspiron 3100. Try it.

Hi,

On the right hand side of your laptop tehre shoudl be a thin compartment with a little square button. On teh right side of teh button tehre shoudl eb alable stating "lightscribe".
(This video shows the location of your CD-ROM, skip to mintue=1 seconds= 40 to 50).

With you PC "on", if you press the square button near the "lightscribe" logo, the CD-ROM compartment will pop open.

Open the door completly.

Here you can inster your CD.

Make sure you put the CD with it's lable facing "up".

Close the CD-ROM door complelty and the PC should start reading the CD.

Cheers,
Ed

I inadvertantly removed the functional software installed for this device. The icon is no longer displayed when I open "My Computer". Since I do not have a functional CD DVD Rom device am unable to...


try taking out the cd-rom out of the system and then hook it back up. Go into your BIOS and see if its being recognized in there, if it is then let it boot back up into windows and see if the device is okay. If its sitll not then try another known working device in there and see if the cd-rom works now. If it does then you know the original cd-rom was bad. If it still doesn't then it could be the motherboard controller that the cd-rom hooks up to is bad.

in the BIOS, If the cd-rom doesn't show up or if it shows weird symbols then try another cd-rom and if you get the same symptoms then the motherbard is bad.

If this is the DVD drive that was originally installed in this machine you should be able to go into device manager and update the drivers for the dvd-rom. The drivers should be located the driver cd's that came with the laptop.
