Dell Latitude E5530 :: Won't Play My CDs Or DVDs

Mar 8, 2013

When I first got my laptop, I was able to play all the CDs in order to download my software, etc. However, now it won't recognize any CD I put in or launch anything. I'm trying to install an Epson printer and I put in the software CD. Nothing will happen. I can hear it whiring and I keep thinking that it'll launch but nothing does. This is what it looks like with the CD in:

Doesn't even show up on the side bar. I can't have a laptop that can't even recognize CDs or DVDs.

Dell :: Latitude D600 Won't Play Burnt Dvds

Nov 23, 2009

Does anyone know why my Latitude D600 won't play back-up (burnt) dvds, but it plays the original disc? When I put in the burnt disc I hear a clicking sound, but nothing else happens.

I have been trying to use burnt -R discs and dual layer discs; these discs play on other dvd players. Should my laptop plays these discs? And if so why doesn't it? I believe it still has the original drive in it; I bought the laptop second hand.

Dell :: Studio XPS 16 Windows 7Can't Play DVDs

Jan 4, 2010

I did a clean install of Windows 7 on my Studio XPS 16 and everything is working except I can't play DVDs.

I installed the latest firmware for the DVD and got sound but no video.

I have also installed the latest ATI drivers and chipset with no luck.

Device Manager shows the driver for the monitory is a generic pnp monitor and I cannot set the resolution of the monitor above 1024 x 768. So, I am assuming that my problem is either the monitor driver and/or the ATI driver.

We are having a serious problem with the battery that we replaced for one of the Dell laptops. The Laptop model is Dell Latitude `E5530. We were getting a message that the Battery has to be replaced and we bought this battery from one of the third party vendors.

It ran for 2 weeks and now it comes up with some weird messages. The laptop isn't detecting the battery at all. We had sent the battery back to the vendor but he says the battery works fine at their end.

Dell Latitude E5530 :: Not Booting After BIOS Update

Updated Bios to A12 today, the system stated the updated was successful but after it's auto reboot it longer boots. 

When you turn the system on the screen stays powered off (nothing on the screen, and no back light). The HD and WiFi lights stay on, the battery light flashes.

Dell Latitude E5530 :: TouchPad Feature Disables When USB Mouse Present

Jan 6, 2015

Okay, I can't get the "feature" of the touchpad to work where it "disables when a USB mouse is present"

Reason:  There is a perpetual bluetooth mouse appearing in the device manager.

I actually have 3 mouse devices listed:  Touchpad, HID-Compliant (bluetooth), and HID-Compliant (Wifi).  Numbers 1 and 3 are correct.  Number 2 is not really there,

When I pull the WiFi dongle, the #3 mouse correctly goes away, leaving me with two.

Clearly, the touchpad is detecting a "HID-Compliant" mouse "on bluetooth".  BUT THERE IS NO MOUSE PAIRED.  I tried to uninstall the bluetooth software from Add/Remove (or whatever Win7 calls it this year), but the device is still there.  So I did an "uninstall" of the device in the device manager, and it comes back.  (yes rebooting between all attempts)

So, something, somewhere, is claiming to be a mouse on the bluetooth stack.  How do I make it go away, since it's not really there?  Because it is causing the touchpad software to disable, thinking there is another device.

Additionally, when I forgot my mouse, I tried to activate the touchpad...  Do you realize that it is completely *impossible* to manipulate the user interface to the Tochpad applet in the control panel without a mouse in the first place???  You cannot make the "save" button activate. This is the ultimate in poor usage design.

But through all my searching I can't seem to find links to download these programs to test these out and play with if anyone is kind enough to provide a link much appreciated.

HP/Compaq :: 1050ev- Recovery DVDs

Sep 29, 2009

I have an HDX16 1050ev.

When I got it, I forgot to make recovery discs and now that I got it back from the service (they replaced the HDD cause it was malfunctioning) its empty, as they told me.

I kept a backup of the Recovery partition (D with windows back up and by Copy Paste before I took the laptop at the service. Now I copied them all back at the new partition that I made.

When I make a new partition in the new HDD, 10GB in size, and try the Recovery Option (Esc and then F11) it says no bootable device.

Is there a way to make the notebook see that the recovery partition is actually in place?
