The bios don't reconize my opical drive for a quanta 30D1 motherboard on a notbook pavilion dv 9700

Please post more information: Is this an external - it sounds as if it is - and is it connected via USB or some other method, like firewire?

Do you attempt to connect it immediately after restarting your computer and waiting for the startup to settle down, as in, the desktop is all configured and it has stopped adding items?

Also, did this optical drive come with a disk with a setup program, or specific drivers on it?

If so, did you do the install, before plugging in the drive? If the drive is already plugged in when you start the install, that might have an adverse effect on it.

Please let us know. Or, try the suggestions, above, and let us know if they helped.

How to care my hp dv5 battery? buy the hp dv5 battery from

For long life battery:

-Don't play computer games, music or DVD movies - Multimedia activities drain laptop batteries.

-Disconnect all external device like PC Card modems, Firewire, USB devices and optical drives. Use the notebook touchpad instead of an external mouse.

-Adjust your screen brightness - Dimming your display saves battery power.

-Tweak Windows Power Options - Choose a Laptop power scheme that turns off the notebook monitor and hard disk after 10 minutes of inactivity.

-Decrease or mute the Laptop Speaker Volume.

-Programs that are run from a CD or DVD can be copied to and run from the hard drive, which typically consumes less power than an optical drive.

Hp pavilion dv5-1125nr dvd player does not read cds or dvds it spins i did drop the laptop can i remove and reinstall the drive and try that? how?

Yes you should try that if you really think it is broken. Make sure you pull the DVD drive slowly and carefully. Also make sure you know how to take it out. You don't want to break it.
