    I have somewhat the same problems with my DVD drive. Some disc will read like DVD movies and CD's I have burnt. I have an installation disk that will not be read by the drive. I have tried the disk in another computer and it works fine, any ideas what the problem is?

I force removd keyboard witht shutting down the PC n the laptop shutdown. Since then screen only shows a milli-seconds deem light. DVD rom light blinking. Fan not turning, only a blinkin green light.


This is a very common problem with windows laptops. This may or may not help but here goes. unplug power. then unplug battery from laptop. Now plug only power cord into laptop. Now turn on and start tapping the F2 fuction key. Once it goes into bios make sure that your boot order is cdrom first. Then save it and reboot with the bootable cd in the drive.

Also if now of this works unplugged Hard drive and see if it will boot up at all and into the bios setting. If you are not able to boot into the cmos make sure also that no cd is in the cdrom drive.

Take your time. Good Luck.

Why isnt my laptop reading discs?


Try removing the drive and insert it again so it connects properly. If this doesn't fix your problem then most likely the drive is faulty and needs replacing.

MY , CD/DVD LAPTOP DRIVER DOESN'T WORK. IT CAN


goto run and type "compmgmt.msc"(without quotes) and select disc management if the dvd drive is showing below the hard disks means your dvd drive is working fine only thing you have to do is to right click on the CD-Rom 0 and change drive letter and paths to it
.if the CD ROM option is not seen in disk management then you have to go to the device manager option under computer management and expand cd/dvd -rom drives and you will find your dvd drive model if not that means that your dvd drive has got hardware problem

DVD rom drive not seen on My Computer Page using XP profesional unable to identify drive but drive spins up when inserting a disc, No optical drive on system page either. Notebook had new hard drive after...


4 Possibilities can occur there.

1. It's either that the Optical Drive is disabled in the BIOS

2. It's either that the Optical Drive is faulty

3. It's either that the Optical Drive's connection to the motherboard is loose or disconnected

4. It's probably the Operating System is not showing the drive for some unknown reasons.

This is only based on my experience troubleshooting desktop and laptop computer.

I've taken a lot of drives out of laptops and usually they are easy to remove and just have a button you need to press to pop them out or they are held with a single screw underneath around the center back of the drive. Those two possibilities should have you covered, and I have rarely found optical drives to be difficult to remove from laptops.

Dvd/cd will not read any disc


On this, you're going to need to uninstall the drivers for the CD/DVD drive from the device manager, then reboot. The machine will find the drive and reinstall the drivers. If this doen't work, then most likely the optical eye or the reader board in the drive has gone out and the drive will need to be replaced. These drives are very simple, they work or they don't, there's really no in between with them, and if their not working then replacement is the only option.

Dvd rom not reading discs


did you clean the optical lens? if you do so, then you've got same problem,my suggestion is, you just purchase a new dvd rom drive, because your dvd has optical lens problem. it happened to me a long time ago with my client, what i did i open the laptop then i changed it with a brand new dvd rom drive. If you are going to repair that dvd it is not advisable, it might be back when the same problem.
