Question about Compaq Presario 12XL 104-106 Series 6X (169799-001) Internal DVD Drive
I have a presario v6000 laptop, just the other week i discovered my dvd rive had disapeared it wasent in my computer or divice manager.
it was in the boot up divice option.
pls can some tell me how to get it back.
This has happened to me since I bought the machine. You need to reinstall your DVD driver. Go to your systems window, selected devices, select drives. You should see the DVD drive (probably a Toshiba). Uninstall the drive. You will be prompted to restart the machine. When it restarts the DVD will operate normally. I use my DVD-R alot and I have to reinstall the driver every couple of weeks.

Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders
This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.
If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete
After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer
Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.
hope this helps
