If that doesn't help try reinstalling windows to the computer or use the recovery cd's to restore the computer to the factory settings.

do read the instructions on the recovery cd's they are not used in windows.

Fmoise914,
Your DVD is fine!!!. It is the driver that needs changing. Have you googled your Hp device? Usually when you google your device as "Slimtype DVD DS8A25-A Driver" You should see Hp site with drivers.Try that out!

6.Now right click on the driver and then click on Uninstall.
7.Now locate an option right at the top which reads as ACTIONS.
8.Click on Actions and then click on Scan for Hardware Changes.
9.Close the Device Maneger Window.
10.Click on Start and in Start Search type Regedit and then click Enter.

If you don't have a disk for the drive you'll need to go to the manufactures web site and download the proper driver for the drive. You then need to install the driver according to the manufactures instruction, after that windows should be able to load your driver.

I have a slimtype dvd a ds8a2s a ata device that I get a code 19 device cannot start message in device manager


Fist, go to devise mgr, --start button, in search area type devise,

find the devise, it should have a yellow shield, click on expand so you see the actual drive, it could be open with the shield next to it already.

It will be under cd roms. right click on it and choose uninstall, yes
uninstall the devise, now cold boot , shut down the computer and restart
it and wait until windows says found new hardware, if it doesn't throw the error when installing or after installing, go back and check it for the yellow shield.

From your description I understand that the DVD drive is not working and you have code 10 error in device manager.
Do not worry, run the following fix on the pc and then restart the notebook.
