Can't read any disk for long ( all new wii games)

Cant read any disk for long or at all, i've tried unplugging it, reseting, and everything inbetween. i'm a IT for Dell, so i thought i could figure it out. Is there any trick or setting to fix this problem.
thanks for your time

Unfortunately there is no solution as it is probably a bad disk drive. If it was your computer I'm sure you could replace it in under 5 minets, alas its a Wii and there is nothing to be done. I had the same problem with my first Wii and ended up just calling Nintendo. They replaced it under warranty. Try giving them a call, Nintendo Consumer Service: 1-800-255-3700 They are often helpful.

Try it with another keyboard. Would've thought a read/write failure would have more to do with the hard or optical drive.

D drive is lost

absolutely no noticeable noise (reading) during startup, no detection of a separate disk drive (my computer), then you've possibly left something unplugged or the CD drive has an electrical prob. with it. All disk drives always have a large flat datacable for readingwriting, data-transfer and a small separat cable for power which both need to be plugged in the proper direction safely with all the valuable pins which can't be damaged, even once... Unless you have good experience with CP hardware repair, I'd respectfully recommend carefully examining your changes you've made since the first removal and try to verify all the changes have been made correctly.

Turning on your Dell and turning off again at the Dell logo three to four times will put the computer in automatic repair. It should also give you other options such as restore, etc.

My Dell 531S will not boot past the BIOS (Dell logo) screen. At first I thought it was the hard drive, since it wasn't recognizing anything connected to SATA port 1. Since then I have purchased a new...

It seems like you have multiple problems:

1. DVD-ROM drive not accessing the disk

2. unable to "disable" the "floppy" drive in BIOS SETUP

3. not recognizing anything connected to SATA1 port

It's time to take your computer to a qualified technician, for professional trouble-shooting.

Is your DELL computer still under warranty? If so, exercise the warranty.

Or, maybe you should just remove the "new" disk-drive, the RAM, the DVD-drive, and then responsibly "recycle" the old computer, and purchase a brand-new system, repurposing the disk/RAM/DVD components.

Dell Inspiron 531 (desktop) won?t turn on/boot

You've either got a bad motherboard or a bad processor (I'd lean to the motherboard being bad). I would honestly take this into a computer repair shop and have them check both.
