My laptop is at region 1 and i want to change it to region 2 i have 1 attempt left

To changethe Region code on your DVD player, open Control Panel - System - Hardware -Device manager, and click on DVD/CD ROM drives, then right click on the DVDdrive and click Properties then click on DVD Region.
You can enter a new region and it also shows you how many changes have beenmade.
NOTE you can make only 4 changes and the player will lock permanently on the4th change.
If you want to play DVDs from any region you maybe able to upgrade the firmwareto make it region free BUT if you make a mistake or installed the wrongfirmware the player will be a piece of junk.
The best solution to make the player region free is to install a piece ofsoftware (Passkey for DVD) that allows you to play DVDs from any region andPasskey for Blu-ray that allows you to play Blu-rays from any region. There areseveral available on the Internet but my favourite is DVD-Region Free From: -,free.htm

I have a new HP - Pavilion dv7-3112sa Refurbished Laptop. The Disk drive is not playing DVDs or CD ROMs. It will play audio CDs fine but when I put in a DVD or CD ROM it just buzzes but does nothing.

It sounds like the drive may be bad. You may want to try getting any updates that may be available from the manufacturer. Also if it does not work you could try reinstalling the drive.
To do this go to start > right click on my computer or computer > select properties > click on the hardware tab > then select device manager > within the device manager look for DVD/CD-ROM drives > click the plus symbol on left > double click the cd dvd drive > this will open the dvd properties within here click the Driver tab on the top of screen > then click uninstall button. > Once uninstall ed restart computer. When the computer is loading back up it will reinstall the dvd drivers.
If this does not resolve the issue contact the PC manufacturer.

Go into MY computer and make sure your dvd/cdrw is being shown in there. IF its in there then try to see if it will recognize anything you put in there. Try different things such as a music cd and then a dvd movie. If it recognizes one but not the other then your drive is bad. If your computer is not seeing the drive at all then it could be a virus or your cables need to be reconned to the drive. No driver is needed, just software to burn stuff and a dvd player to play dvd's.

Cd/ dvd drive burned out

If it is 5 months old, get it replaced from Dell. Dell's laptop CD/DVD drives are a cinch to replace. Just a couple screws if I remember correctly.

I had the same thing happen to an Averatec AV3715-EH1 notebook, but it was well out of warranty. Had to buy a new DVD burner drive.
