I was trying to play a blu-ray disc and I inadvertently locked the blu-ray drive on my brand new HP Pavilion dv9750us to Region C when it should be Region A (am in the Philippines trying to play US and Taiwan blu-ray discs). Can anyone please help me get my drive back to Region A? It is a matsushita BD-CMB UJ-120 ATA drive. Please help, Thanks!

Unless the drive in your laptop is a blu-ray drive, it won't recognize a blu-ray disc. A blu-ray drive can recognize and play a regular DVD, but it doesn't work the other way around.
If your computer is indeed fitted with a blu-ray drive, the laser lens may need cleaning. On a laptop, you usually have clear access to the lens with the tray open, so you can try cleaning it with a cotton swab moistened with lens cleaner. Or the disc itself may have a problem. Try another disc and see if the trouble continues.
If the computer doesn't have a blu-ray drive and you will frequently want to play blu-ray discs, get a USB external blu-ray drive. It's easier to find one of those than to locate a suitable blu-ray replacement drive for a laptop. There are many variations of drives used in laptops, but an external drive will always be compatible. And you'll be able to use it with other computers not blu-ray equipped.
Your HP computer should come with Quickplay, open the program, click on DVD, on the upper right hand corner on the left side of the rectangular box there should be an icon that looks like a wheel or a gear, click on that and click on Updates, should solve your problem.
let me tell u that cd support is built in it has nothing to do with software ur LENS is getting weak and when it starts getting weak it first stops cd reading and writing to Double check just revert back to the old situation and check if cd's work to go back go to system restore start>all programs > accessories>system tools>system restore , go back to earlier date and see if it works if it does not then as i told u ur lens is getting weak take it to warranty claim if u have one or try cleaning it as below
open the dvd tray u can see that shiny eye like thing try cleaning the lens gently in round movement with a tissue paper or very soft cloth used to clean lcd screens see if it works , other wise ur DVD drive lens got weak from use now adays service centers are getting tons of them everyday for replacements
The problem is QuickPlay. Some discs work, but those that didn't, played just fine on my PS3. I had to buy Cyberlink PowerDVD 9 Ultra (10 Ultra also plays Blu Ray), and now, they all play on my HP dv4 laptop. Updates won't matter. Don't use QuickPlay, it's very "fical". Hope this saves you time & frustration. It's not you, it's not your Blu Ray drive, or drivers, it's simply the software/program (QuickPlay) that is the problem.
Oh, does it have a Blu-Ray reader? Most laptops are made with a DVD burner max. Check your drive. Blu-Ray is new and too high quality. It needs special players (mostly very expensive) and they cannot be played on normal home DVD players.
The Sony PlayStation 3 is arguably the best Blu-Ray player, apart from being a gaming console.
