Cd will not open


Hello,
You have two possible issues:
1. Defective hardware part
2. Outdated driver

To isolate the problem, I suggest that you try playing a known good CD. If it's not going to work, then install RadarSync and scan your computer with it. It would tell you if you have an outdated driver in the computer. Update the drivers.

Did a system restore of compaq presario 5000 computer. cd/dvd player will not play gaming cds


See if it would play regular cd, then see if it would play dvd's. The reason is because most gaming cd now and days are dvd's and maybe your dvd-rom has a driver issue or the laser head isn't reading it. So try that first, then see if the drivers for the cd/dvd rom is working properly in the device manager. It may need a dvd coded software, try installing like powerdvd or something. If it still ain't working, and it can't play dvd's then your cd-drive could be history

The problem is not with this computer, It's with a dell laptop and it is not mine, the trouble with it is the CD\DVD driver never worked since it was new and the fried did not know anything about computers...


First, I would try an external cd rom and see if it works. If it does then that means that the drivers or the drive itself is bad. If there are drivers for this drive then try to install them. If it did not come with drivers (most of them don't only the older ones) then replace the cd\dvd drive. It's pretty easy to do but you have to take the machine apart. Usually it's a matter of taking the keyboard off (the screws for the cd rom are found under the keyboard) removing the two screws that hold the cd/dvd rom drive on and applying a little pressure on the drive to remove it. Perform the opposite operation to install the new one. The new drive will run you around $30 - $35 or less if you can find one on ebay.

Dvd does not work. Light blinks but not seeing it . is there a driver i need or what do i do to fix this


You must determine if the problem is the media you are using (CD, DVD) or the drive itself. (CD/DVD Rom)
First see if the driver is installed for the CD/DVD ROM by Right clicking My Computer and choosing Properties, Hardware, Device Manager. Clikc the plus sign next to DVD/CD Rom Drives to see if there is a yellow exclamation point, or question mark. This means you need to install the correct driver. If there are no yellow exclamation marks or question marks your driver is installed properly.
Next try playing difffernt CD's to see if any of them work. Confirm they are good CD's by playing them on another device, then try them on your Compaq. If the Cd's play on another device you may possibly be experiencing read errors on the CD/DVD Rom drive. Try using a CD Laser Cleaner that will clean the laser head of the CD /DVD Rom. it looks like a CD with small brushes on the music side. This may solve a read error problem. if that does not solve your problem you may need to replace the CD/DVD Rom drive.

Installed cd writer in dell dimension 2100 when i try to play cd it give me erro windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. you may not have the appropriate permisson to access the file


It is most likely a bad CD. Try other CD's, and if they work fine, then you have a scratched (visible or not) CD. If very few or no other CDs work, then you have either a bad CD drive or a bad Driver.

Try going to the CD drive's website and find an updated driver. If you already have the latest driver, try re-installing it, then restart your computer. If none of that works, then you should try a different CD drive.

Also, if your not an administrator, try accessing the drive withe Admin privileges. Also, try the CD at school or work, or a different computer and see if it works.

Good luck,

Computer is not recognizing my cd/dvd drive


Umm..Try install all the drivers of your system. the CD was enclosed in your system. if ever the cd is not work you should download the driver of your system.

or After installing a new windows do not restart your system until you finish all the driver installation and also the driver of your CD/DVD.

I 100% pinpoint that the your CD/DVD needs a driver. so install and you'll be fine.

Playing dvd's


It sounds like your computer is missing a DVD decoder software.  Witout this little thing, the drive will not work.  Try getting a program like Win DVD or Cyberlink Power DVD they are very cheap, and work well.  If this does not work, try updating both the drivers and the firmware.
