HP / Compaq nc2400 Otical drive will not work correctly after OS install, will not spin fast enough

I have several HP / Compaq nc2400 ultra small laptops. About two weeks ago I took one off the shelf and inserted a XP Pro 32Bit CD and it launched and installed the software and I went on to update all of the drivers. Later I decided to add another program using a CD and the Optical Drive (DVD/RW) will not spin up to full speed, it just kind of surges for a few times and then quits trying. I have tried other CD's so that is not the problem. At the time I just I had a bad Optical so I went to the next nc2400 and it did the same thing. So, I thought two bad Optical drives? It turns out that this problem is consistent over several of these that I have done and I cannot figure out why. It sees the drive within Windows, and it allows you to attempt to boot from it at start up, it just won't spin fast enought to read. Has anyone run into this before? Why do they all run fine during the install of the OS, even as the OS restarts the computer during setup, but then it quits after windows is installed? Thank you

SOURCE: Having problem installing Windows XP on My Acer Aspire T650 Computer

Before you did the install did you make sure that you set your CMOS setting to check for a cd disk first before booting straight to the hard drive? When you do an install, you must make sure that the computer knows to look for a bootable disk otherwise it will look for an operating system to boot to first. If this is the problem, after you have installed your operating system you must go back and reset your CMOS settings to look for a hard drive or operating system. Hope this help and if it doesn't let me know for further assistance.

SOURCE: Computer will not boot with Pioner Blu-Ray BDC-SO2 installed.

Hi stokarek,
With respect to SATA drives. All are master drives. As you mentioned if there is a fight between drives the trouble can be settled in the bios. I gather the WD160GB drive holds windows on it & the WD is connected to SATA 1 port. Enter you're bios & go to the Boot section. Open you're manual to section 2.6 boot menu page 2-32. Make sure you're WD is the only hard disk drive listed. After you add the Blu-Ray (To SATA 2 port), (its pin setting should be set as master. Than go back to the boot menu & make sure the Blu-Ray drive is listed under the WD drive.
Keep in mind for the future that if you want to boot to the Blu-Ray drive you'll need to press the F8 key at boot up. Windows select boot device window will open & high-light the Blu-Ray & press enter so the Blu-Ray will boot. Windows should no longer stall. If this does not work try switching the pin on the blu-ray to slave. (I'm not sure there is even a pin setting on the blu-ray drive. Never the less the bios boot order is the boss.

SOURCE: No CD /DVD Drive Icon

I checked the specifications on the Acer 9410Z, and verified that it ships with Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium.

This is actually a very common problem in Windows Vista and tends to occur for a few different reasons. One notable issue is anti-virus and anti-spyware programs that perform a system scan and remove any instances of viruses and/or malware.

Without going into too much detail there is quick fix available from Microsoft at: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314060

Scroll down to "Fix it for me", and just click "Fix." This will run a quick installation, and then ask you to restart your computer. If it doesn't ask you, then restart it manually.

Your CD/DVD drive should now show up in My Computer, and should be recognized by all programs.

Hope this helps!

Open the Device Manager (you can do a Windows search for it if you don't know how to open it).
Look in the Network Adapters section.
Remove your Ethernet device. Right-mouse-click it and make sure it's not disabled. If it's disabled, enable it and you should be fixed.
Otherwise, click it to highlight it and press "delete" to remove it. Then right-mouse-click on "Computer" (at the top) and "scan for hardware changes." Windows *should* install the correct driver.
Otherwise you'll need to go to the HP support site on another computer, save the driver to a flash drive, external hard drive, or CD or whatever, and then install that on your computer.

My Compaq Presario 1700T will not play DVD anymore. It worked before. Now when I insert a DVD I can hear DVD spin for about 2 seconds then it stops spinning momentarily, then it spins for another 2...


IT'S 16 years old, there is no support for it now. sorry.

we get these here all the time, and no OS stated
why post with out stating what OS this is,
?w98, w2k, XP, VISTA,W7,W8, w8.1 W10.?
nor showing the DVD model there, it has s specific model name
and number (vast types used and sold)
DVD from store, or one you made or others made by hand.
home made or factory made store bought DVD?'
did you try this?
did you try other DVD movies? or look for the VOB files on them?>
Testing 123, easy to harder,
1: try a music CD first. store bought not home made.
2: look for files on any install CD, using the local file manager.
my computer, this computer, or what ever ms calls it this year.
we look to see if the PC can see the files on a real CD. first.

even the HP install CD, or other CD that are not for music or movies, if it cant read a CD, and see fails drive is bad.
or its drivers are missing or corrupted,(virus or?)

3: if this fails open the control panel, (start , CP) then look in device manager (on XP it tricky to get there so tell us if it's XP)
no OS stated, so....no operating system stated.
if the Device manager fails to show the DVD DRIVE,
this means :
A: bad. drive.
B: drivers for the drive are missing (hp has them if still HP DVD drive)
C: the OS is corrupted.
D: running XP , the Dead OS, with out SP3 service pack 3 will be very bad experience in all ways. it has DVD driver in said pack.
E: not running the HP drivers, that hp has. (but HP does not support 16 year old PCs at all) so getting them now is super hard.



the users manual mentions windows 98.
omg is it that old?
the same manual says , only select models has DVD drive.
to make DVD work , special software from HP was installed.
From HP, not MS.
there is a free manual for your PC
