Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition
Hello, My laptop (HP Pavilion D9870ea) will not play cd/dvd's, it's less than a year old & did work up until a few months ago, we didn't use the laptop for anything much as we had another laptop & desktop,the problem became apparent when we decided to get it internet ready, it wouldn't read the set up disc & had to set up on line The.OS is Windows Vista home premium, and device is an Optiarc BD rom BC5500A. Tried several fixes, uninstall/reinstall drivers etc.,regedit but upper/lower filters are not shown, If the usual fix (regedit) is used the cd/dvd appears in devices but on inserting disc,play list appears,graphics come on & sometimes a quick burst of sound & then the error message "windows media player cannot find the file, if you are trying to play,burn or sync an item that is in your library, the item might point to a file that has been moved renamed or deleted." I have completed a system recovery, followed to the letter what to do after a system recovery, but all to no avail. It mentions amongst the myriad of items read, does the device appear in the BIOS? If it does I can't see it, but I have an identical laptop with the same devices & software & it doen't appear on that one either & that works fine, am I misunderstanding this? Thanking you in anticipation, Regine in UK
Go to Control Panel and uninstall the program you installed (CD/DVD) installer. Reinstall the program.
