Re: m15x disc drive

Hi 13johnsonsp,

Please flash BIOS from the link given below:


Note: While flashing BIOS connect the Ac adapter and make sure the battery has minimum 15% charge as this needs uninterrupted power supply. Do not use the system till it restarts and comes up to the desktop.

Revert with the status.

Thanks and Regards,

If updating the BIOS doesn't work, you can try the steps in this article:

Alienware Systems: Optical Drive not reading discs or ejecting the discs 

Specially the one that says "Delete Upper / Lower Filters"
