Question about HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook

Compaq presario v2555us

I have a cd/dvd player problem with this computer.
It completly doesn't respond. There is the green light that flashes when the computer starts, but when you press the button it does nothing.The other thing the drive is doing is when the computer starts up, unless the drive is either open or disabled, Windows won't boot. I have gone into the bios to see if it is disconnected but it shows up fine. Windows doesn't recognize the drive, and doesn't even display in the device manager. I have tried changing the driver for this but no luck. I have also rolled back Windows to the last best startup configuration, which displays the driver, but when you try to do something with a cd or dvd, the computer freezes for a moment and the driver disappears.
What are some signs that the drive is shot and needs to be replaced? Can you give me some symptoms? I think the drive is bad. As I stated above, when the driver is disabled the computer is normal.

Thanks,
Ricky

The CD/DVD won't recognize any disc I put in my computer (Compaq Presario).


Hello.

First, try a disk head cleaner to see if there is dust/dirt on your drive.

If still a problem and there is a light on your CD/DVD drive, it is probably faulty and needs replacement.

Hope this helps.

A damaged hard drive will NOT affect your bios, however a bad motherboard, ROM, chip, memory, etc. can cause your system to freeze when entering BIOS. You probably need to send it out for repair.
