Cds skippng once loaded

Hello and good afternoon. Have a 6 month old laptop. Am having a problem with cds skipping after the first 25/30 seconds have elapsed. Tried several different cds to make sure it wasn't simply a disk issue. Any thoughts?

Many thanks,

Mike

Why my laptop DVD player freezes suddenly while playing, just on some certain CDs or DVDs even the same CDs or DVDs works properly in other laptops and PC?


Seems your laptop DVD player's laser diode lost it's capacity. If it is not that old, try the followings:
1. Blow some air with a watch air blower or an air can. Try the DVD/CD which freezes. If this doesn't work
2. Put a drop of lens cleaner and wipe with caution to the lens. Wait for a few second and try playing the DVD/CD. Don't use force when cleaning the lens. This should be just touch and wipe action.

If this is not the case and the drive is old, you need to replace the drive. This should cost about 30$ to 45$. I did mine last month.
Good luck

CDs skip on normal playback


Hi, the most probable cause for this is the lasers light output falling off as it ages. Sometimes you can temporarly improve this by cleaning the laser lens with some alcohol. However the only real solution is to replace the laser.

If you are confident taking stuff apart you may be able to do this yourself. Almost all modern laser assemblies come fully calibrated so all you need to do is take the old on out and fit the new one.

The lasers often have the part number on the side of them. You can get spares from CPC in the UK. But a search for the part number should find you a spares supplier wherever you are.

My dell inspiron 1525 is very slow causes?


try to check running programs on the back ground, you could view that by going to the task manager.
exiting programs that you dont need will give you some spare virtual memory.
to access task manager:
press ctrl+alt+del then press task manager,

also check the loading programs upon booting the computer, check your startup and remove unnecessary programs that load upon startup.

set your computer to have the best performance

one more thing try to disable your anti virus to see if it is the cause of the slowing of performance.

cds skip irrespective of their positions as the reading lens is the same for all.

OR
2)buy a new disc (scratchless) , play it in all positions and com pare.

if it skips in all positions, call an electronic engineer who will replace /repair the delay circuit.

Skipping


If you go out and buy a cleaning disc it may help. You should really clean a car cd player at least ounce or twice every 6 months to get the best sound and play out of the unit. You can pick these disc up at any walmart , kmart , or computer store. Hopefully this can help you out
