Have you verified that the disk you are trying to boot is bootable and not damaged on it's boot sector?
Does the drive read other DVDs (after boot into OS?)

SOURCE: DELL Inspiron 6400. CD/DVD ROM cant read any

all you can do is uninstall the drive from the device manager and delete the upper filter and the lower filter in the registry NOTE: please enter the registry at your own risk. To enter the registry click on Start>>>Run and enter regedit in the run command. The path to delete the upper filter is hkey local machine\system\currentcontrolset\control\class\{4d36e965-e325-11ce-08002be10318 click on the folder and delete the upper or the lower filter or both and then restart the computer. Hope this helps

If the driver didnt fix your problem, your disk drive might be faulty , maybe the problem is on the disk drives lens this is very common problem 2 any other cd/dvd rom drives.

Boot into Safe Mode by pressing F8 during boot. Right click My Computer and Manage. Check for hidden devices ubder View and delete all CD drives. Reboot and Windows will auto install.

You have a bigger problem if it fails to install and work. Then I would try re-seating the drive physically. GL

Im not able to boot from os cd the bios can see rom drive and hard drive but im not able to boot iv'e tried f12 but no joy can you help?


hi there.

If you go to the bios on start up and select cd rom drive as your primary boot and then restart. Your computer will then try to boot first from the cd rom drive and second from the hard drive. If it fails to boot from the disk then this would lead me to believe that either the disk is unreadable by the drive or that the cd rom drive itself is unable to read the disk.

Put recovery disk in the CD drive. On reboot, hold down F12 key. You should get a choice of drives to boot from. Make sure the first two are in the correct order:

1. CD-ROM (optical drive)
2. HDD (hard drive)

then press F10 to save and exit.

Now the laptop should boot correctly from the recovery disk.

Have you tried using a lense cleaner disk?

Can you hear the disk spinning at all?
