Question about PC Laptops

Open Question

Compaq Presario v2410us Laptop, does not recognize my disc drive, dvd/cd player. Well my laptop (HP Pavilion DV6636NR, Vista Home Premium 32 bit) has been having a few issues.... Sometimes when I watch a movie the screen goes blank and then recovers and tells me that the display (driver or device, cant remember which word) stopped working but recovered. The second and third is that the disc drive and webcam stopped working, the laptop doesn't even recognize that there is a disc drive there. I get a message sometimes saying that a USB drive has malfunctioned but I'm not sure if that's related or not. I think that would be related to the webcam at least, but I'm stumped with the disc drive. Also, sometimes when watching a movie or video, instead of the display driver stopping and recovering, what will happen is that the laptop will just completely freeze up. Usually the audio lasts for a few seconds after the video freezes up, and then the whole thing freezes and I have to reboot. Any help would be geatly appreciated because I can't afford a new computer.

HP laptop dvd player can read DVD but not CD


The lens is causing the problem. Simplifying a bit, on a DVD unit, the same lens must "focus" on a laser beam reflected by the disk. CD and DVD reflect laser beams on different frequencies.
A scratched or dirty lens may be able to read DVD and not CDs.

Try first cleaning the lens with a CD cleaner product. you can also try cleaning the lens with isopropyl alcohol and cotton stub, be aware that there is risk to make situation worse using this technique. If you put too much force on lens , the optical drive may not work at all afterward.

If that does not work, rather than replacing the lens, on a laptop you replace the optical drive alltoghether.

Disappearing DVD driver


Use device manager to remove the dvd/cd unit, and then reboot the computer. Vista will locate the unit and install the driver.

It is possible that the dvd/cd unit has failed and requires repair or replacement

Laptop hp dv6000 will not recognize cd burner/dvd player


HP Pavilion dv6000 laptop PC
Did you 'turn off' the AUTOPLAY feature of the CD\DVD ? When the player "runs two times at startup", it is trying to find the program on the disc.2nd- Look in internet for HP dv6000 cd\dvd drive replacement.(If that is the ""exact match for the product"" you wrote about)
3rd.goto CONTROL PANEL>SYSTEM>HARDWARE>DEVICE MANAGER and look up cd\dvd and uninstall it. REBOOT, when your system comes back it will try to find the cd\dvd. If it does not, it is damaged (kaput!), must be replaced. If Windows finds the cd\dvd drive and reinstalls the drivers, but it does not work, then the heads are dirty or damaged.That Windows found the dvd\cd means that the circuit on the device works.

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.
