Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

My cd drive will not burn cd's nor will it play any of the utility cd', like print explosion. What can I do to fix it?


Answers :

Hi im wesley. open your pc and make sure the cable is not damaged that goes to the cd drive if its fine take the drive out open it up and inside you will see a little glass head in the drive its blue inthe middle take and ear bud and gently clean it but be very carefull its very fragile and will brake with the ease if you touch it to hard because there is a little spring under it suspending it and if it brakes you will have to replace the hole thing. after cleaning it it should work as the head might of just gotten dirty and wouldnt read. but if it still doesnt work its packed up and you need a new one.
