People, please help me to overcome the following problem.
The dvd drive on my laptop (Dell XPS M1530) was damaged. I ordered a new one on eBay (DELL XPS M2010 1530 DVD+-RW DRIVE TEAC DV-W28SLB 0RF681). After it was replaced the BIOS doesn't recognize it, nighter CDs nor DVDs are recognized, although, physically it works properly, i.e. inserts and ejects (when I push the eject button on my laptop) the CD/DVD. When I run the BIOS diagnostic it passed perfectly on everything except the optical drive, and it stated the following error message:
Error Code 0147
Msg: Error Code 2000-0147
Msg: Unit 0: Optical drive BIST -- OPU test faild.
The given error code and message can be used by Dell Technical Support
to help diagnose the problem.
The only operating system that I have on my laptop is Linux-Mandriva Spring 2008 One, so I cannot install anything else.
Please, if anybody knows how the following problem may be overtaken please leave a feedback, I will greatly appreciate the provided help. Thank you very much in advance.
Found this for you hope it helps. See it here,
Thank you for your quick response, but, unfortunately, there is nothing for the error 2000-0147. There is a list of options to resolve the problems 2000-(0141 to 0146), but nothing about 2000-0147.
But also have a look at this site,
Dear Tiger Galo, I have the same problem but my dvd drive is not new. My laptop (Dell Inspiron 1420/M640) does not recognize CDs/DVDs. The BIOS diagnostic gave me the same error code.
Did you get any response or suggestions about this?
Unfortunatelu, not yet. If I find something I will inform you. And please, if you find anything just keep in touch. Because if I don't find any solution longer, I have to order another DVD and will trow away this one 🙂
