HP Pavillion ZT1170 CD Activity Light on Solid

I have a HP Pavilion ZT1170 laptop and it does not recognize the CD/DVD. The CD activity light is on solid and does not go off. I tried rebooting (several times) and even took the battery off but nothing helps. I remove the drive itself and that has no effect either. Do you have any suggestions?

Try with a CD/DVD lens cleaner CD. This will rectify any static charge or dust in the lens.

If any heavy phisical impact happend, may be the drive contacts are improper. Conform there is a DVD-RAM Icon presents in the My Computer window. If not found try the following steps.
1. Load CMOS default valus and give a proper start up and check the DVD-RAM drive in your system.
2. Shutdown the system
3. Gently push the drive inside the laptop's base cabinet. Remember apply a gentle force.
4. Turn on the system and check it out.
5. If the above steps failed, Shutdown the system, and remove the drive from the motherboard. Clean the electronic contacts using a pancil eraser or with a nice cloath. Insert the drive again, then verify.

Note: In all the above steps, try with more than 2 CD/DVDs 'cause laptop drives are too sensitive and can not read some CD/DVDs even thay have a little scratch.

2nd place a windows setup into the drive.
3rd save and exit the bios.
4th if it ask you to press any key to enter setup then the cd drive is good.

Hp pavilion zv6000 wont recognize dvd+r


Hi Terry,

The answer is pretty simple, the ZV series is about 4 years old, back then DVD manufacturers decided which formats they would support as it was too expensive to make desktop drives, let alone, laptop drives that supported all formats. That drive only works with DVD-R and I believe DVD-RW. If you want to burn other formats, the laptop will only support them if you add an external drive of a newer make.

Note: Virtually all current models support ALL DVD formats and many support BluRay as well.

Hope this helps,


Chris

Laptop hp dv6000 will not recognize cd burner/dvd player


HP Pavilion dv6000 laptop PC
Did you 'turn off' the AUTOPLAY feature of the CD\DVD ? When the player "runs two times at startup", it is trying to find the program on the disc.2nd- Look in internet for HP dv6000 cd\dvd drive replacement.(If that is the ""exact match for the product"" you wrote about)
3rd.goto CONTROL PANEL>SYSTEM>HARDWARE>DEVICE MANAGER and look up cd\dvd and uninstall it. REBOOT, when your system comes back it will try to find the cd\dvd. If it does not, it is damaged (kaput!), must be replaced. If Windows finds the cd\dvd drive and reinstalls the drivers, but it does not work, then the heads are dirty or damaged.That Windows found the dvd\cd means that the circuit on the device works.

I have an HP 5000 Series laptop. Just installed a new cd/dvd writer...windows still didn't recognize new drive.


Firstly, try reconnectnig it and make sure you push it all the way in. Then try this:

1. Got to Run on the startmenu. And type regedit.
2. Open HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlClass.
3. Go to the first folder that starts with {4D36...
4. Delete UpperFilter and LowerFilter.
5. Reboot the unit.

If it still doesnt work after this try a full system recovery. If that doesnt fix the issue you might need a new CD-PCA board or mainboard. But it can also be a DOA(dead on arival) DVD-ROM.
