Cd-rom won't run

When I put a disk in my 513n Pavillion the light blinks but my computer doesn't recognize there is a disk in it. I can't find the CD-ROM's link on my computer either.

However before you open the PC and reseat the cable i will advice you to go to BIOS and check if optical driver( Disc Drive) appears in the BIOS or not if yes than you don't have to open and reseat the cable.
If Optical driver Appears in the BIOS Try these steps don't open the PC.
You go to registry and delete upper and lower filter and restarts the PC and i'm sure it should work.
If not than try system restore or try to reinstall optical drive drivers from recovery manger at last if nothing works than system recovery.
If optical drive doesn't appears on BIOS nad try and reseat the Cable if you are comfortable.

You will have to open the pc and check the cables running to the drive. If you are confident enough to do that, I would suggest to remove the cable and push it back again firmly.
Thanks

My hp pavilion 513n has completely stopped working! I need help!


Start the computer, and keep pressing F8 until you get a "boot" menu -- white text on a black screen.
Select "safe mode with command-line", and see if Windows will start.
If it does, enter 'CHKDSK C: /F' to get Windows to check the integrity of the file-system.

Then, find a friend with a genuine Microsoft Windows XP CD-ROM. Boot from that disk, and choose "repair", and see if the boot-process can "repair" your installed copy.

  1. Reset your printer if you are having communication problems with the computer. To do so, press the "Power" button to turn off the printer. Wait a few seconds and then power it back on.
  2. Power off the printer again if you are still running into problems and disconnect the power cable from the AC power. Wait a few seconds and reconnect the power cable. Power on the printer. This simple procedure resets the printer back to the default factory settings. Move to the next step if the reset does not work.
  3. Disconnect the USB cable from the printer. Insert the printer software installation CD into the CD-ROM drive on your computer and wait for it to automatically launch. Click the Windows "Start" button if it does not launch and click "My Computer. Right-click the CD-ROM drive with the disk and click "Autoplay to run the CD.
  4. Select "Setup" on the CD and select "Remove HP DeskJet 932c. The printer software and drivers are removed from your computer.
  5. Reconnect the USB cable to the printer. The installation disc automatically recognizes it and begins reinstalling the software and drivers.
  6. Print a test sheet to verify that the printer is now working. You can print a test sheet using a word processing application (e.g. Microsoft Word) or using the Internet.
