DVD/CD drive not working

My dvd drive quit working on my V2000 Compaq Presario. How big of a task is replacing it? Can an amateur do it? Also, I would like to upgrade my ram while inside. What do I need to know?

Compaq is having so many service centers and your dvd rom will be easily replaced. do not prefer an amateur to do it... and also for RAM, try to upgrade it by at least 2 GB.

This is a common fault normally there is one screw underneath laptop and it has a keyboard logo on it.. if you unscrew that you should be able to slide out the the cd drive

if you take it out then plug it back in it should start working again. if not you need to reinstall the drivers for the drive :)

Installing ram is simple just undo the screws at bottom they are clearly marked with like a rectangle box then u will gain access to them take them out and put new ones in :)

Should sort you out matey

If this helps please rate :)

You can replace it, but its very hard for an ameteur not reccomended. you should try tigerdirect.ca and find a store near you get them to check it out, theyre pro's and gauranteed cheaper than future shop or bestbuy by far. Especailly for parts- that would solve your ram thing too. But also try and check if your warranty covers it or if there was a recall on your product

Need help with Compaq Presario v2000 drivers


Your DVD drive is missing the Burning Program not the driver. I found an update for your windvd software for windows 7 but you probably have to have the full program installed to run the update. Hope this helps.

Presario V2000 WIDESCREEN, DVD drive not read or write DVDs


I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that the notebook in question doesn't have a DVD drive. After looking at driver for that model, it appears it's only a CD capable machine. Please correct me if i'm wrong.

Look at the drive, are there any markings on it, i.e. a "DVD-ROM" or a "DVD" logo? How about a "CD-R" or CD-R/W" logo? If it does not have any type of DVD logo, then it's not DVD capable.

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.

You don't need drivers for optical devices (CD and DVD drives) as Windows has native support for them.

It sounds like a corrupt Registry entry, which is common with XP.

The following should fix it.

Start Registry Editor (Start, Run and type in regedit then click O.K)

Locate the UpperFilters value under the following key in the registry:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

On the Edit menu, click Delete, and then click OK.

Locate the LowerFilters value under the same key in the registry:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

On the Edit menu, click Delete, and then click OK.

Quit Registry Editor.

NOTE: After you remove the Upperfilters value and the Lowerfilters value, if you notice lost functionality in a particular program, such as CD recording software, you may need to reinstall that software.


Restart your computer.
