Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
I have two issues with my HP DV6000 cd/dvd: 1) It is ejecting periodically for no reason. I've heard of other's experiencing the same issue but have not seen any resolution to it - if any. 2) I also have the problem of it not ejecting a cd (whether after playing a cd or recording a cd). Any help on these two items would be great!
For the first issue, the cause can be a Spyware or Hardware.
To come to a conclusion, if the Tray of the DVD Drive ejects immideatly after you close the Tray and remove your finger from it, the issue is with the Holding machanism of the Drive.
Also, try checking the status of the Drive tray in BIOS by followint the steps below :
Start the Notebook and start tapping the F10 key immideatly after the HP logo appears which will take you to the BIOS Setup window.
If the tray of the DVD Drive ejects repeatedly even in the BIOS, the issue is with the Drive hardware and needs a replacement.
However, if the tray of the DVD Drive ejects after some gap after booting into the Operating System and not immideatly it is closed, the issue can be with infection of Spyware in the Notebook.
In this situation, you need to scan the Notebook for spyware using Antispyware applications like Spybot from the link below :
Download and install the application and make sure that the application is updated by connecting the Notebook to Internet and scan for Spyware.
Clean any Spyware entries that are found in the Notebook.
Hope this will be helpful......

Mine does the same thing upon startup with a windows disc inserted. I believe it is either a defective drive or the motherboard has cold solder points.
If your problem is spyware, Spybot is a good option, but I would download it from the software creator, Safer Networking, instead of a mirror site. Their new version is far better than 1.62 and can be found at:

Tips for a great answer:
and got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "HP
Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support).
Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating
system when requested. Download and install the Audio drivers.
Try using the VLC Player. It comes with drivers and codec. I've seen it solve many sound issues.
Try using VLC as your player. Go to www.google.com and
in the search box type "download vlc" (without the quotes).
Look for the Video Lan download from site www.videolan.org/vlc Download
and install it. It downloads and installs in 3 minutes or so. It's
a very fast player, smooth and it can play just about any type of dvd formats
and media. It's totally FREE.
