Dvd driver does not play or burn blank dvds compaq r4000 but it will play dvds & cd its got dvdrw/r rw dvd+r dl n the driver


Try another DVD-RW drive because it sounds like the laser is going bad. Burning requires alot of power from the laser. Playing DVD or playing cd's doesn't require much so thats why it would play those.

Both the buttons of my Compaq Presario C700 touchpad stopped working all of a sudden.


Hi,
You have perhaps a CD for your presario Compaq computer. Try to insert that in your CD rom and look for the touch pad to enable. Or just look for the touch pad in your device manager and enable it. To open the device manager, right click computer and go to properties and click hardware then click device manager. If touch pad is in the list enable it.

Thanks...

Dvd does not work. Light blinks but not seeing it . is there a driver i need or what do i do to fix this


You must determine if the problem is the media you are using (CD, DVD) or the drive itself. (CD/DVD Rom)
First see if the driver is installed for the CD/DVD ROM by Right clicking My Computer and choosing Properties, Hardware, Device Manager. Clikc the plus sign next to DVD/CD Rom Drives to see if there is a yellow exclamation point, or question mark. This means you need to install the correct driver. If there are no yellow exclamation marks or question marks your driver is installed properly.
Next try playing difffernt CD's to see if any of them work. Confirm they are good CD's by playing them on another device, then try them on your Compaq. If the Cd's play on another device you may possibly be experiencing read errors on the CD/DVD Rom drive. Try using a CD Laser Cleaner that will clean the laser head of the CD /DVD Rom. it looks like a CD with small brushes on the music side. This may solve a read error problem. if that does not solve your problem you may need to replace the CD/DVD Rom drive.

O.K. now that I installed my DVD/CD Rom it will


i think this is a common problem we encounter when DVD rom lens is becoming faulty. it can only read cd but not DVD then after some time wont read any disk at all. if your drive still has store warranty it would be best to claim the warranty. i tried fixing this kinda problem but it cost me almost the price of a new 1 LOL.

My dvd rom wont play dvd only cd's


DVD/CD players use two different lasers. One to read DVD and one to read CD. Sounds like your DVD laser burned out. Lasers last about as long as light bulbs do.

My cd's and dvds wont play on my laptop.


Go to your My Computer icon, and click on properties and device manager under hardware tab. Go to your dvd/cd player, and check to see if you have one that is enabled or has a driver. (Go to the plus sign and double-click). If the hardware/drive is disabled, it will have a red cross on it, then just enable it by clicking on it and you will see an enable or disable tab. This will most likely solve the problem.
If not, let me know...

CD/DVD intermitent audio


CD's and DVD's has different speeds try to check your dvd player/rom if it is compatible with your cd/dvd disk. Some dvd players are sensitive it will not play perfectly if your cd's are scratched. try to use new cd's. It might work.
