CD/DVD is recognized by the computer, but does not

My CD/DVD is recognized by the computer, but does not... tried fix it did not help

My CD/DVD drive has stopped working.  My computer recognizes the drive but when I put a disk in it cannot read.  I tried multiple disks, but nothing will work.  I tried microsoft fixit, but it does not work.  He said that the media cd/DVD drive is not readable.  Help, please.

Is that your CD/DVD drive is older than 1 year?  Then, the drive may be defective, with a faulty lens.

I don't think that any form of manual registry change or fix tool will work in the situation.

    Hello Ann,.

    If you allowed them access to your PC, then it is a problem. I considered reinstalling my OS and change all my passwords. It would also make sense, if you use the online banking etc., to inform your bank that you have a security hole on your PC. This will alert them to anyone using your current password to the Bank etc.

    Original title: bad start.

    On May 15, 2013, I was prompted to download 8 updates from Microsoft. Since then when I turn on the computer, it does not show my office. It comes with a white screen. The only way to see the desktop is at the stop 'wrong' to turn off the power to the computer. Then I reboot, it just asking if I want to boot up normally, I say Yes and all is well on the office. Seems related to downloads of May 15, 2013. Any ideas?

  • Re: Deskjet 3070 - replaced the cartridges but does not now print!

    I have the same problem with my printer Officejet 6700 Premium. I just replaced all the cartridges with HP new ones. The printer is now going through the motions but does not print blank pages. This happens for all what I am trying to print including Diagnostics pages. The printer is a little older a year is not under warranty. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Hello twoshirts,

    I saw your other threads, and I understand that you have completed all the procedures listed here troubleshooting: printer does not print black ink or color of ink or prints blank Pages without success.

    I would like you to follow the steps below:

    1. reset of the printer, please make sure that you plug the printer directly into the wall, do not use a surge protector or power bar, they can cause the printer is in an error state and lose features of base over time.

    2 a 'cartridge problem', "Ink cartridge failed" or not "compatible ink cartridges" Error Message appears on the all-in-one, I know you did the cleaning steps, but, if you please, reinstall the cartridges and perform all THE steps listed

    3. now go ahead and run HP print and Scan Doctor- it has been designed to provide users with HP and features troubleshooting fix needed to solve many common problems experienced with HP print and scan the products related to Windows computers.

    I understand that you are not able to print diagnostics from the menu on the front panel as well, but want to see if the PSDR detects all conflicts in the software or drivers.

    Please let me know the results.

    Thank you

  • Firefox starts on the computer, but will not be displayed on the screen

    Firefox is loaded on a dell Windows XP computer; It works fine one day. The next day I had cleaned up cookies and temporary files when I clicked on the icon, it acted like it was running, but would never appear on the screen. When I went to start it again it told me he was running, but I still don't see the program.
    I had to reboot the computer, but when I tried to start it again, it did exactly the same thing.
    I uninstalled and reinstalled but that has not solved the problem.

    Some Firefox problems can be solved by performing a clean reinstall. This means that you remove Firefox and all the leftover program files and then reinstall Firefox. Please follow these steps one by one:

    1. Download the latest version of Firefox from office and save the installer to your computer.
    2. Once the download is complete, close all Firefox Windows (click Exit in the file menu or Firefox) and confirm all future messages.
    3. Now, uninstall Firefox by following the steps mentioned in the article to Uninstall Firefox .

    IMPORTANT: Under Windows, the uninstall program has the option to remove your personal data and settings. Make sure that you have not check this option. If not all of your bookmarks, passwords, extensions, customizations and other Firefox data user profile will be removed from your computer.

    After uninstalling Firefox on Windows, delete the folder of the program "Mozilla Firefox", located by default in one of the following locations:

    • (Windows 32-bit) C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox
    • (On 64-bit Windows) C:\Program Files (x 86) \Mozilla Firefox
    1. Go to the Windows Start menu and click on 'computer '.
    2. In the Explorer window that opens, double-click on disk Local (c) to open the C:\ drive.
    3. Find the folder "Program Files (x 86)" or "Program Files".
      • On 32-bit Windows, double-click the Program Files folder to open it.
      • On 64-bit Windows, you'll see a folder "Program Files (x 86)" AND a "Program Files" folder. Open the Program Files (x 86) folder.
    4. You are looking for a folder of Mozilla Firefox . If you find one, right click and select delete and confirm that you want to move the folder to the trash.

    Now, go ahead and reinstall Firefox:

    1. Double-click on the downloaded Setup file and go through the steps in the installation wizard.
    2. Once the wizard is completed, click to open Firefox directly after clicking the Finish button.
