Question about HP Pavilion a1520n PC Desktop
First my problems started when it would not recognize a DVD. The light on front of PC would come on and it would just make a grinding noise but would not play. CD's were slow to come up but eventually they would be reconized. Now it will not pick up & play either one. The light still comes on and flashes on the front but won't play.
I have checked the region & that is set right. I looked in device manager & it says device is working properly. I tried to update driver but it says my drivers are current.
I don't think that the DVD part of this pc ever worked. I burned the backup when I first purchased & it let me do that, but it has never seemed right. I also ran a test with a series of CD's DVD's but I didn't have all the different CD/DVD the test required.
Thank you in advance for any help!
It sound like your DVD/CD+RW has a problem with the read/write head. So u can use some cleaning liquid to clean the head. After cleaning hope it will work on CD. Most of the time DVD are not played or read properly when you eject the disk while in use.
