You only can change this setting 5 times, then it is locked. You can not change the Region code after this even if you reinstall Windows, or move the drive to another computer. You can try upgrading the Firmware for the drive from the Compaq / HP Support page for your product. If that does not work, you will need to replace the drive, or download and install a Region Free software like AnyDVD or DVD Region Killer.
No its not a bug most DVD-ROM computer drives allow you 4 or 5 region changes first check your region code and number at DVD Region Info it will tell you region code Australia is 4 UK is 2 sand so one plus you region changes http://www.visualdomain.net/
I however do suggest removing your region code from your DVD-ROM using a region free firmwar or on your PC you can use http://www.dvdidle.com/dvd-region-free.htm it is however a bit pricey the region 0 firmware hack would be better.
