\015\012In the specifications on Dells Website it does list a DVD RW drive as an OPTION for this model.
\015\012Seeing as this is an Option and NOT a standard component we are still up in the air yet. Sooooooo now we have to to a bit of research on your behalf.
\015\012
\015\0121.) Press the <Windows> key and <Pause break> to bring up the properties page for your PC
\015\012
\015\0122.) there should be a "Hardware" or "Device manager" tab or link on this page (Depending on Operating System)
\015\0123.) after we get to the device manager we should see a list of hardware on the system, click on the CD/DVD option or Optical drive option (Again depending on OS)
\015\0124.) If you have adrive listed here as DVD -R or DVD +R or DVD -RW or DVD +RW or DVD RAM then you do indeed have a writable drive and just need the burning software.
\015\012
\015\012If not one of those options you likely just need to install a DVD writer drive and your good to go.
\015\012
\015\012Hope this helps you out.

Hi kevinstacey7,

your answers unfortunately is yes and no... not very helpful eh? :)

you see the DELL B110 can come with any type of optical drive including a dvd burner but you have to opt for it when you buy it. If you are unsure or want to find out more about your machine then click on:

Start menu> Control Panel> System> Hardware> Device manager

In that screen you can see all of the hardware that your PC has installed.

there is a particular one that we want to see and that would be the CD/DVD hardware if you press the little plus sign and you see that DVD RAM (not rom) is installed. then you can burn DVDs.

That said the easier way to find out is to stick a blank dvd into the drive and try to burn something with Nero (a cd/dvd burning software).

If i can help you with anything else pelase feel free to ask

I would like to replace the fan of my Dell Dimension 9200 with a new / different one. Dell germany is asking me for 70 euro for a replacement (not service, just the part) - nice joke I thought. The Dell Dimension (and other models) is using a non-standard connector for the CPU fan. Its a 5Pin connector with 4Pins used. As its using 4Pins, I am confident its a PWM controlled fan. The question left is, which Pin of that fan connector on the Dell Mobo is serving what exactly? Now looking at the ori
