Whenever I put in a cd, dvd, or software it will not run the auto play. I hear the disk turning for a few seconds but then it stops and does nothing after that. When I go into my computer it doesnt even show the cd/dvd drive even exists. Do you have any suggestions on how to resolve this issue?

Most units are designed to "autoplay" audio CDs when they are inserted. When they fail to do so, it could be because the CD is dirty or scratched and was bot recognized, the media player that you are using to play the CD was not in a state that it could autoplay the CD, or there could be a problem with the Disk drive or PC itself. Whenever a CD fails to play upon insertion, go to the "My Computer" icon (win7 or below) and see if the CD/DVD drive shows a disk inserted. If so, clicking on the drive will often start the playback.
If you know the DVD and the DVD drive is in proper working order, it could mean that the software you are running just may have some problems. Try downloading a copy of VLC (VideoLan Client) this application is free and open source (and no it's not something I created and am just trying to get people to use...it's just something that works great, and completely free) VLC can play almost any video file or DVD that it encounters. If VLC can't play it, I would think it's likely there may be something with your disk or your DVD drive.
Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Battery, then close the lid and turn the laptop over and remove the one screw that holds the dvd drive in place on the bottom of the laptop. Remove the Dvd Drive and in about 20 seconds put it back in and Try rebooting to see if it solves the problem.
Your dvd drive might be defective and needs to be replaced. You can find one on ebay. Just put HP Probook 4510s DvD drive in the search.
Once you take the dvd drive out you can also search on the model of the dvd drive. The model will be listed on the dvd drive.
this is either a faulty dvd drive error message, or you have missing system files on the hard-drive.
The computer is asking you for the ( Media-Software Disk ) that is missing, and is required to start the computer.
Try putting your restore cd, or operating system in the dvd drive when booting the computer.
Can you see the drive in (my computer)? What software are you using to watch DVD'S? Is this a burner or just a DVD drive? You need software to burn DVD'S and CD's. W indows has this but it is not that good. Try Nero to burn disk. Try Power DVD or another player like Divx. Windows Media player should play them if it is updated. Make sure that you do not have auto run turned off. You will find these in the properties for your DVD drive.
There may have been a Windows update that corruptdated one of your Windows Media Player files. Check for spyware or a virus. WMP is usually an avenue for thay sort of thing. Check for updats to all software involved. You may also consider doing a firmware update if they have one.
