    I have the same problem, but intermittently. The DVD category doesn't even appear in Device Manager when the dvdrw isn't working, so I'm guessing the dvdrw is probably the problem? What's the IDE cable and how do I change it?

Ok first of all has anything vhanged, there is a known problem when upgrading XP to vista, where te cdrom.sys rivers arent installed. this is fixable but tedious, if it just simply dissapeared without change, go to device manager:

XP: START> RIGHT click my computer > click "properties" > "Hardware" tab > click the "device manager" button.
VISTA: START> RIGHT click my computer > click "properties" > on the left click "device manager"

under DVD/CD-ROM drvices, you should see your dvd drive, now the field is probably expanded already and it most probably has a yellow exclamation mark next to the device, or it has a large yellow question mark. this means the driver for the vd rive has either failed or is not working properly.

quick fix for this is to simply RIGHT click on the device, click uninstall, confirm, and once un-installed, re-start the machine. apon restart windows should automatically detect the dvd drive as a new device and install it.

if there is simply no device listed under DVD/CD-ROM devices, or the catergory isnt there, windows isnt detecting it at all, which commonly means the dvd drive itself has failed, (the fact it may be powered and opens/closes is irrelevant). but before throwing it away, try changing the IDE/SATA cable. if the uninstall/re-install doesnt work, you may need to re-install it from a winows disk, which is a little tricky. but can be done. let me know if it doesnt work and i will pace you through it.

The laptop is a dv6700 HP Pavillion. What steps should I take to solve this issue.


About it being an HP Pavilion dv6700 laptop?
Ehhh, giveittome. I will use it.

Looks like I'm going to have to guess since the 'Issue' wasn't stated.

The main problem with the Pavilion dv6700, which is part of the Pavilion dv6000 series of Notebook PC's, is that all the indicator lights come up, but there are no graphics being shown on the LCD screen.
The screen is black.

This is due to a graphics chipset problem, caused by a poor cooling design of HP designers.

The graphics chipset (GPU. Graphics Processing Unit), is mounted to the motherboard in a BGA surface mount.

Instead of pins coming off of the bottom of the chipset, as on the older Processors, there are Solder Balls.

The motherboard has tiny copper pads that line up to the solder balls.
The graphics chipset is set into place, then heat is used to melt the solder balls, and attach the graphics chipset to the motherboard.

Due to the poor cooling design, the graphics chipset overheats, and the solder connections are partially melted.
The graphics chip now has a poor contact to the motherboard.

Did you try doing a driver rollback?

Try updating the drivers again. If all fails, Try a system restore by pressing f10.
