Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I have a sony laptop PCG-K315M which is around 3 years old. Up until now the CD/DVD combo has been working fine and now when I place any type of media in there it is making strange noises and doesn't sound if its spinning. Any ideas what could be the matter with it?

My Vaio DVD/CD drive Sony DVD RW DW-U14A hasn't read a disk in more than a year. XP knows its there but doesn't read disks. (Both blank CDs and commercial CD-ROMs like Microsoft Works show in...


Hi. Check the transport mechanism of the laser head. The transport can get stuck with dust, hair or vibration. If the transport is stuck, the drive still appear but can't read the CD because the lens is not moving properly.

Clean the area around the lens with cotton buds (be careful not to scratch the lens). Move the lens mechanism away from the center (use a plastic paper clip, slide gently). Place a DVD/CD disc and reboot your laptop. The DVD will auto align the drive during boot-up.

Good luck.

Combo drive not working as well as ON/Off button on CPU not funct


hi i may not be able to help you with the power problem but i do have here a solution on your combo drive and hope it would work
In order to delete upper and lower filters you're going to have to edit the registry. The usual cautions apply. If the registry is not edited properly your whole system can crash.

1) Close all open programs
2) Click on Start, Run, and type REGEDIT and press Enter
3) Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders

* HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
* SYSTEM
* CurrentControlSet
* Control
* Class
* {4D36E965-E325-11CE-
BFC1-08002BE10318}

4) This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.

* UpperFilters
* LowerFilters
* UpperFilters.bak
* LowerFilters.bak

5) If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete
6) After deleting the keys, close the Registry Editor
7) Reboot your computer
8) Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone

goodluck!

I have a Sony Vaio desktop with XP. My DVD-CD


Have you tried burning a CD in the new drive? Because the drive is a DVD it will always be recognised as a DVD, but should work perfectly well with CDs both playing and recording.

DVD is not being detected by combo drive


Hi Imran,
Sadly this is a fairly common problem with combo drives. In all likelihood, it will cost you more to have the drive repaired than to replace it.
I will suggest purchasing a dvd writer to replace the combo drive.
They are fairly inexpensive.
Regards,
