Laptop keeps turning off and DVD-CD-RW Rom won't work.

Hi,
I have a Compaq Presairo M2000. It keeps turning off.
Some times I have been on it for hours other days it will turn off 5 mins after it starts up. So I don't think its a heat problem?
As well as the above, now the dvd/cdrw rom won't work. It is reconised in My Computer, and will eject the door via My Computer promt, but it will not read anything.
As soon as a disk goes in, it spins for a moment then nothing.
All my drivers are up to date and there is no conflicting hardware showing in the device manager or system information??
Help please

The turning off problem may be a memory problem, download and run a memory checker (memtest 1.7 or later) it may also be a virus problem
ensure your virus checker is up to date and run a full scan,these would be a first step to try and solve these issues.

good luck

Compaq presario cd-rw/dvd-rom combo drive does not recognize dvds. the driver is installed but dvds do not play.


you may check youe BIOS settings by restarting the pc and repeatedly press F2. Then check your PC or system settings wherein there is a list of peripherals such as Floppy Disk, CD/DVD drive, Network Adapter etc. Those peripherals will tell you if they are enabled or not. use your arrow keys to select and check if the CD/DVD drive is enabled. Then press F10 to exit and hope that CD/DVD would work...

I have a compaq presairo R3000. The troubleshoot feature says the dvd/cd is working properly but it isn't.


The troubleshooting feature doesn't checks the lens of the laser, only the software and the motors. Since the lens cannot be repaired you will have to replace the entire dvd unit .

Dvd-cdrom plays music-cd.Not dvd-cd :No Valide Drive/Disc Found


Simply change the ROM to DVD RW drive since this is an old PC and now days nobody uses a dvd rom but a dvd writer. It will be worth it since it can do all the functions and is also more hardy........sodeep

Hey i have a compaq presairo m2000 and my screen cracked and my freind has a 15" lcd screen an the model is a LTN150XB-LO3 MODEL WOULD THIS SCREEN FIT MY LAPTOP M2000 PRESARIO


Hi,
i,d say no. This model of screen is for gateway MS20S-MS325X-M520.
Or Some Models Of:- Toshiba-Fujitsu-Siemens-Dell.
If you think about attempting the swap, check the cable connectors. and wiring. also ensure the inverter boards are the same or equivalent. if the panel is not identical or a suitable manufactured replacement. you may damage your computers motherboard.
