My cd drive does not recognise cds

Okay. First of all is it a cd drive in your computer as opposed to a DVD drive? If you put a dvd into a cd drive it cannot recognize the dvd. A dvd drive can recognize a cd, but a cd drive cannot recognise a dvd.

Does your computer actually recognize the drive as being present?
If the drive isn't recognized by the computer try:

power off the laptop
Physically remove the cd or dvd drive
power -up the laptop without the cd/dvd drive
power off the latop and refit the dvd/cd drive
power it up again and see if the drive is

If the drive IS recognized by the laptop but won't play any disk it's probably the drive itself at fault. You can try gently cleaning the inside of the drive - the optic that reads the disk. However, the usual cause is failure of that optic which read the disk information. It cannot be repaired.

The alternative to fitting a new drive is to buy a portable dvd drive. They connect via a usb cable. Have a look on Ebay

First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

My hp pavalion dv6910 dvd/cdw driver is missing

Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll down cd-dvd rom drives you might see a yellow question /exclamation mark ? ! or a red X right click to update driver

you might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd/dvd restart your computer then plug them back this should activate the found new hardware wizard

if this does not fix the problem it might be a registry problem if you cant see your disk drive in windows explorer
Close all open programs

Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders







This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.

Upper Filters

Lower Filters

Upper Filters.bak

Lower Filters.bak

If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete

After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer

Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.

hope it helps

My hp g70 screen started going out and now it will not even power up


If you have TV with VGA input or a monitor, try plugging it into the laptop. If that works then you know your video card is ok.

If the screen on the laptop is completely dead (try looking at it closely, if you can see things on the screen but really faint this means your back-light has burnt out.) If you see nothing then you probably need to change the LCD screen altogether.

You can get LCD screens for this unit off ebay for about $115.00

Depending how old the laptop is and what you paid for it, buying parts to fix it might be a waste of money. You could always buy a new laptop, and get your data transferred from the PH g70 to the new one.

HP pavilion a705W pc desktop/ on back by power plugin, green light is on, push power button to turn on, light goes out and nothing happens. I opened panels and observed light again on back lite green and...

if you have installed a new hardware, that might be the cause. specially if it is a video card. The wattage of your power supply might not be enough to run the computer. try to remove newly installed hardware such as video card. If there is none, you may try to remove the power for the hard drive and the dvd drive and check if it will turn on. Just bood in to bios..

if that works, then it definitely is the power supply. it cant provide sufficient power to your equipment..

hope that works.

Is the computer still under warranty by HP? If so, exercise the warranty.

Enter BIOS SETUP, and check that the motherboard has detected the CD/DVD drive.

Check that the "power" adapter is securely plugged-in to the drive.

Check that the "data" cable is securely connected to the drive AND to the motherboard.

If all else fails, spend $40 to buy a replacement CD/DVD reader/writer, and responsibly recycle the old drive.

That laptop, the original specs show that it does not have a blu-ray drive in it. Unless somedbody took the original drive out and put a blu-ray drive in the laptop, then it won't play blu-ray's.

There are the specs on this laptop from the factory:

That would be why the system keeps asking for dvds.
