Do you still have the software installed? You could try downloading a free CD burning software. Simply do a google search for Free CD burning software and download your choice. That should work.

Why will my cd rom not burn cds but will work to play them?


If its just a cd rom then it was'nt made to burn cds, if it has cd-rw on the faceplate then it should burn them.Since I cant see it I can only guess.If its a cd rom / cd-rw then try updating your cd drivers this may help. Good luck.

I have a dvd/cd SD-R6252 unit in my r3000 compaq presario. I've burned CDa but cannot burn a DVD. I think I know the answer but I want to be sure is this unit capable of burning DVDs?


Hi, well ur DVD\CDRW drive is a combo drive. It can play CDs\DVDs but burns only CDs as it's NOT a DVDrw @ the same time. It won't burn a DVD.

.... In future I propose u either to replace the drive by a DVDRW or u may buy an external slim dvdrw if u want to keep ur existing drive as well. 2nd solution is best BTW.

Compaq C304nr Bios problems.


This HP Support, the page for Compaq Presario C304NR, and the Manuals page,
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/manualCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=3245634&lang=en&

Go down to the first download in the list -> HP G3000 Notebook PC and Compaq Presario C300 Notebook PC - Maintenance and Service Guide, and click on it. (HP bought out Compaq.
Compaq Presario C304nr is part of the Compaq Presario C300 Series)

This download states that it's a guide, but in reality it's a Service Manual. It's a PDF file. After you click on the above, it may take up to 30 seconds before you see anything. Most of the time in 10 to 15 seconds, you see the first page. Let it fully download before looking through it.
You can save a copy so that you don't have to download it again, and also so you can burn a copy off to CD disk.

After the PDF file FULLY downloads go up to the top headings. Click on the Floppy Disk icon. It's the second icon from the left. Hovering your mouse cursor on it will briefly reveal, "Click to save this file to your computer or another location"

In the next small window, (Save a copy..), write down the letter/number that is in the -> File name:, box. (It's c00753552.pdf), so you can find it later. It will either be in your My Documents folder, (Start>My Documents), or on your desktop screen. When you see it, double-click on it to open it.

Read starting at Page 87 for Removal and Replacement Preliminaries, first, then go to Page 111 to remove the RTC battery.

I suggest you go to section 2.4 for the Troubleshooting Flowcharts.
(Starts on Page 35)

My Burner has a problem


The problem looks like a native of the drive. There are possibilities of the drive being faulty. As it is still under warranty, I'd recommend you take both laptops to the nearest HP service station for a replacement.

Broken touchpad on compaq v5000 series


Disassemble the laptop, down to where you can remove the top case cover, and get to the Touchpad. (AC adapter, {Charger}, removed, and battery removed)

Here's how:

1.http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/manualCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=499847&lang=en&
This is HP.com/Support, and the Manuals page for the Compaq Presario V5000 CTO laptop. (Even if it isn't your exact model, your laptop is part of the Presario V5000 Series, and this information transfers directly over)

On this page I would like you to click on ->
Compaq Presario V5000 Notebook PC - Maintenance and Service
Guide <- in blue.
It states that it's a 'guide', but it's a Service Manual, believe me!

This is a PDF file download. After you click on it, you may not see
anything happening for up to 30 seconds. Usually after 10 seconds
you will see the first page. I caution you to Not look through it, until it has fully downloaded. You may accidentally break the connection.
AFTER it has fully downloaded, you can save it to your computer.
This way you can burn it to a CD disk, and look at it anytime you want. (You can also delete it off of your computer, and free up harddrive space, plus you can put the disk in another computer, and view it as you work on your laptop)

To do this click on the Floppy Disk icon. This is in the upper header, and is the second icon from the left. Hovering your mouse over it will briefly reveal, "Click to save this file to your computer or another location"
If you do not have your downloads set to be saved to your My Documents folder, this pdf file will go to your desktop screen.
(c00700903.pdf)

Suggest you start with Page 77 first, then on Page 125 (Base Enclosure and Top Cover), you'll find the info for removing the Top Cover. The Touchpad is in the Top Cover.

My Dual Layer DVD±RW for my presario v2410us will not read CDs


It happens in combo drives where the cd reading wont work and still read or burn dvd's or vice versa. If you tried to use a cd cleaner and still didnt work then the cd reader is already busted. it either you replace it a new one or not.

Loss of Wifi Ability


You may need to re-onstall the driver for the wireless driver. Look in the CDS that came with your PC or if you bought a card look for the CD!
