I beleive that the DVD Drive icon had dissappeared from My Computer.
However, I recommend you to check in the Device Manager by clicking the + mark next to DVD/CD-Rom Drives.
If you find any entry under the DVD/CD-Rom Drives, right click on the entry and select Properties.
In the Properties window that opens, check the status of the drive listed under Device Status.
If you find any error message with Drivers, we need to make some registry changes to reinstall the Drivers for the DVD Drive which should solve the issue.
Since you had not mentioned the Operating System installed in the Notebook depending on which the steps to edit the Registry depends, I am providing the steps for both XP and Vista :
Uninstalling DVD Drive Drivers from Registry in XP :
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314060

Follow the instructions listed under Advanced Troubleshooting to edit the Registry in XP
Better way is to copy the entire link and paste it in the address bar of a new Interner Explorer window and press enter key.
Uninstalling DVD Drive Drivers from Registry in Vista :
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929461/en-us
Better way is to copy the entire link and paste it in the address bar of a new Interner Explorer window and press enter key.

You may either find the Upper or Lower Filters or Both as per the instructions provided in the links above. Delete the Upper and Lower Filters which ever you find from the Registry and restart the computer which should solve the issue.
However, if there is no entry of the DVD Drive even in the Device Manager, you may have to remove and reinsert the Drive manually as it can be an issue with the connectivity of the Drive with the Notebook.
You can find the instructions to remove and reinsert the DVD Drive from the manual of the Notebook which can be found from the link provided below :
http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00737799.pdf

You can find the required instructiosn to remove and reinsert the DVD Drive in the Notebook starting from page number 110 of 233 in the Manual.
However, if there are no error messages in the DVD Drive properties window in the Device Manager and if the DVD Drive icon is missing from My Computer window, all you need to do is to try changing the Drive Letter of the DVD Drive from the Disk Management window.
Find the instructions to change or assign a Drive Letter to the DVD Drive in XP from the links below :
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/fastFaqLiteDocument?lc=no&dlc=no&cc=no&docname=lpg40244#N545

http://pcsupport.about.com/od/tipstricks/ht/changedriveltr.htm

Better way is to copy the entire link and paste it in the address bar of a new Interner Explorer window and press enter key.

Find the instructions to change or assign Drive Letter for the DVD Drive in Vista from the link below :
http://www.tech-recipes.com/rx/506/vista_xp_reassign_change_drive_letters/

http://pcsupport.about.com/od/windowsvista/ht/chdrlettervista.htm

Better way is to copy the entire link and paste it in the address bar of a new Interner Explorer window and press enter key.

I am sure that any of the instructions provided should solve the issue with the DVD Drive in your Notebook.

How to enable bluetooth on hp pavillion laptop


Hey there,

If your particular model of HP has the bluetooth installed from the factory, turning on the wireless switch on the front left edge of the laptop enables the bluetooth, as well as the wireless LAN. A bluetooth icon should appear in your taskbar, near the clock, when bluetooth is turned on. Most of the cheaper versions of the DV6000 series do not come with the bluetooth module installed. The module can be ordered from HP Parts and installed by the end user, if they have a little computer know how. You would then download and install the bluetooth software pack that is available on HP's support website.

Hope this will help to resolve your issue with Bluethooth..

Cheers!!!!!

Sounds like Spyware or Adware causing your issues. Try scanning it using http://superantispyware.com/ or AGV Free.
