If you go to your device manager and find the make and model of the player you will be able to download the drivers from the manufacturers site. Often times these drivers get lost or misplaced by an upgrade to another operating system or a Windows update.

I need to replace the CD Drive (is that what it's called?) on my Dell Inspiron 1545. Problem is - I can't figure out how to remove the old, original one. I've read that it's supposed to just slide out...


Hi kevin_mills5,

Welcome to FixYa! How are you doing?

I checked the Service Manual for Dell Inspiron 1545 and here is what i found in removing the CD Drive:
  • Remove the screw that secures the optical drive to the computer base.
  • Using a plastic scribe or screwdriver, push the optical drive out of the bay.

Hope that helps. Thank you for using FixYa.

Hi i have a dell inspiron1545 and when i turn it on i get the dell screen then it just goes black with a flashing curser in the left hand corner i rang dell but its out of warrenty but they did say it...


Hello
It seems the Hard drive error but first you check hard drive in CMOS Setup, if the HD is appearing in Setup thats mean that the Hard Drive is OK
Then you have to try recover the system by installing Operating System with Recovery CD if you have or by any windows CD/DVD you may have.
Hope this helps, if so do rate the solution Good Luck

A kind of sound is coming from left side of touchpad in my new dell inspiron 1545 laptop problem:


Hi i'm Rain.
Ok there are only 3 sounds you will here from your computer laptop.
  1. You will hear the fan running.
  2. You will hear the HardDrive running.
  3. You will hear a CD-rom drive running. Wheather its a DVD or CD-RW.
You will need to turn it over and listen from the bottom.If there is venting then more than likely its the fan.
If its where the Media drive like i mentioned {DVD/CD-rom}. Then thats your sound. If the sound is coming from an area that you can't visually see something that it could be.
Then its your hard drive. To resolve the problem you will need to first locate and name the item that is making the sound. Follow the steps i have given you and locate the source of the sound.

Dell inspiron 1545 problem on installation,problem


1. boot to cd/dvd rom using the dell resource drivers utilities. you need to test the dvd drive if it is working, if yes, we might have 2 problems it might be the dvd installer or the hdd. run a test for the hdd to isolate the issue or you can try to run the installer to a diff computer to test if dvd installer is not faulty.
