It could be that the laser has been damaged or is dirty, but all signs point to a laser reading malfunction. If you have a lens cleaner handy, give it a run in your CDVD drive and then try another DVD. If that does not work, then unfortunately you will need either a replacement lens or most likely a new CDVD drive. If the laptop is still under warranty, contact the warranty provider and see what they can do, if not then you may want to weigh up the cost to see if its really worth getting fixed, since generally a laptops life is 3-5 years (can be longer if looked after well)

Go down to the second line in this 'paragraph', and scroll across.
Click on the blue dv9000.

    I have a HP PAVILION DV9000. I want to burn a CD but it tells me that it cannot find the drive in order to burn it. Please help.


    It Seems your DVD Drive is read only, Its not R/W.
    Please check the front of DVD Panel. If R/W is written it should work?

    Please post your feedback and Vote if the problem resolved as per your satisfaction>

    Hp pavilion dv9000 cd rom not burning dvd-s. cd burning ok, dvd reading ok


    you need to state what operating system you use.

    but if cd-rom is burning cd's and not dvd's this is usually problem with software, you need to state what software you are using to burn dvd's as well, seem like you do not choose correct driver in your burn software settings.

    How long is the battery on a HP Pavilion dv9000 supposed to last?


    Laptop batteries will usually last from 1.5 to 5 hours, depending upon the demand, the battery and the use. Sound burns up a lot of juice as does the DVD player so if you're watching movies or playing games an hour is about right. You can purchase a better HP PAVILION DV9000 Battery with 12 cell , it will work longger.

    HP Pavilion dv9000 Problem


    I understand that your Notebook is not booting into windows.

    To isolate the issue please try to boot the Notebook in Safemode.

    Restart the Notebook and keep pressing F8 key and select Safe mode to boot.

    Please try to perform the following steps also

    = Power Drain =

    1. Disconnect the AC Adapter.
    2. Remove the Battery.
    3. Hold the Power button down for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
    4. Reconnect the AC adapter and Battery.
    5. Turn on the Notebook power.

    If your Notebook is booting into Safemode. Then try to restore the Notebook to factory settings. Before restoring the Notebook backup your data.

    I hope this will work.
    Thanks
