Question about Lenovo Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Have Lenovo G550, standart DVD-ROM When inserting CD, makes strange sound (starts working, stops working cycle) and won't read CD. If I dbl-click on DVD-ROM image, it gives "insert disc" message and opens DVD-ROM. CD works in other computers. Just burned this CD. What could that be?

    Disk is new, but there appears to be a little scratch, cleaning does not helps.

    But disc works fine on other computers, is lenovo DVD-ROM somehow more sensitive than other DVD-ROM devices? (I understand it was much cheaper than others )

Is your disc scratched up? Clean the optics with a microfiber cloth, and try another disc. Try restarting your computer.

Cannot read DVD but can CD?


Could be just a dirty lens. Try :-

1) Blowing some compressed air through it. You can get cans, may already have one.

2) Running a CD lens cleaner. Its practically the same mechanics.

After that, its taking it out and cleaning it.

No dvd/cd rom icon


From what I read, Acer Empowering software is no big deal. Some say it's fine, others say nothing worthwhile. If you aren't thrilled with it, you might consider uninstalling it and seeing if it brings your CD-rom back. If you want to keep it or uninstall of Empowering software doesn't work, uninstall the CD-rom and then let Windows rediscover and install it again.

Go into Device Manager, right click on CD-rom and choose uninstall. Close out and restart.

Try running a cleaner disc in the unit if that doesnt work try the following.

Starting at my computer... Right click on my computer icon.

Go to properties.

Then Hardware tab then go device manager. Right click on cdrom in device list. Select uninstall then reboot the computer. If this doesn't help replacing the unit will be necessary.

CD ROM not working


Sounds like your CD Rom has karked it and is dead. This happens for many reasons. Take it into a computer technician to get a new one put in for you and your laptop will run perfect and you won't have to worry about the BIOS problem

Hope This Helps

Dvd fault


your laser is faulty and is only able to read cd tracks, the reason being that dvd's data is packed closer together than a cd, and when the laser is failing it can only read wider burned data tracks on cd's.

You will have to replace the drive

Reads all but DVD-Help PLEASE


When you say it won?t read are you trying to play commercial DVD movies or read DVD data disks? If you're trying to play movies then you need a couple of things the first being some type of player program. Real player works as does Windows media player but usually DVD drives come with a striped down version of PowerDVD or WinDVD. If you in fact have a player installed and when a DVD is inserted in your drive it doesn't play it may not be configured to automatically play DVDs. Try opening your player program and trying to manually play your DVD. Let us know if you have any success or if you need more assisted. If you do let us know what player program and operating system you have and any error messages that may appear.
