Follow these instructions very carefully:

1) in COMMAND type REGEDIT

2) CLICK on HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

3) CLICK on SYSTEM

4) CLICK on CURRENTCONTROLSET

5) CLICK on CONTROL

6) CLICK on CLASS

7) VERY VERY CAREFULLY: CLICK ONCE ON THE FIRST REGISTRY RIGHT UNDER THE WORDS CLASS

8) Using the up and down keys on your keyboard: move the highigh down the list SLOWLY until you see the Title "DVD/CD-ROM DRIVES" on the RIGHT HAND SIDE OF THE REGISTRY EDITOR UNDER THE WORDS DATA.

9)VERY VERY VERY VERY CAREFULLY ERASE ONLY THESE FOLLOWING WORDS:

ANYTHING THAT SAYS LOWER FILTERS AND ANYTHING THAT SAYS UPPER FILTERS

After that close all windows and reboot the pc.

Check the dvd drive again with a dvd movie and an audio cd and a software program.

If everything works, the issue was just a corrupted dvd registry, if it does not then you may have a blown cd drive reader and may need replacement.

Let me know how it goes for further help :)

Pavillion a1620y spontaneously restarts at various times. There is no clear pattern to the restarts.


Right click on 'Computer'.

Properties

Advanced Settings

Startup and Recovery

Untick the box 'automatically restart'.
This will give you time to read what the error message is when it does it again.

If it still restarts, your system is overheating. Check the fan is spinning inside above the processor.

If it isn't, simply replace the fan (unclips and uncouple a cable).

Hp CD\DVD rom not reading CDs, but is reading DVDs?


cd/dvd rom is probably not working ,try using a lense cleaner disc if that doesn't work it's cheap enough to just install a new drive DVD/Rw as they are about £20.00 new.

I need to know which one is the rigth sound card for a Pavillion a1620n

Above is some HP info on how to do it if you are not too up on these things...

If you want to do a little troubleshooting hit this above and select you operating system (XP or Vista)
As far as purchasing a new sound card and say you only want to run 2.1 speaker (2 speakers front-1subwoofer) then there is the fancier ones that you can go up to (5.1,7.1) total surround sound, and they can get pretty costly...
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=2000290057%201101108499&name=4&ActiveSearchResult=True

this link above will take you to Newegg, a great-reasonable place to shop-and fast, usually 1to2 days max.
the first sound card is inexpensive, the only thing you should be careful of is to make sure it will work with your Operating System
XP or Vista...other than that you are wide open for selection.
I would pick the Diamond at about $20

HP Pavillion dv6121tx 15.4" notebook problem with DVD


Hi

It sounds like a hardware fault on the drive itself. The laser and focussing mechanisms are different for CDs and DVDs. The fact that the drive can read DVDs fine suggests that the laser and lenses can no longer focus correctly to deal with CDs.

Replacement of the drive would be the only fix, although you might find it a lot easier to buy an external USB DVD drive.

HP Pavillion not reading audio CD


It is possible that this is a drive issue, I've seen drives that one of the optical reader device has gone out, but generally it'e the DVD reader and will only read CD's. It's very rare that the CD reader goes and the DVD reader works. Before you replace drive, if it's only music CD's (you didn't mention program CD's), then update your media player. If it still won't play, then unistall the media player and completely reload it. At this point you can replacse the drive.
