Question about HP Pavilion DV6500T Notebook
My dvd rom is not working. my system cannot detect it. when i click "My Computer" DVD rom is not there.
That usually means the drive has failed and needs to be replaced. You may have noticed that it was slower and noisier shortly before it stopped. It probably stopped be able to burn dvds, then cd first, then it had problems reading dvds but would read cd's then finally nothing. Thats the typical pattern. Some just go from normal to nothing but thats not as common.
The cd/dvd drive is a simple repair and easily attempted. There is one screw that holds the drive in place on thebottom. Undo that screw and the drive slides out. Push the new drive in and put the screw in and you are done.
You can buy a replacement drive from several places including HP. You want to get it from a third party not HP. HP charges more. You should check to see if you have any warrenty either from HP or the store. they will replace this under warrenty. A replacement drive for this looks to be rather expensive at $200+ even from third party suppliers. Those can be found simply by searching for 'laptop replacement parts' using google or bing. Then looking up your specific model.

That happened 3 times on my computer when it was still brand new! They replaced the drive, and it happened again. It is a registry problem that Itunes causes. Every time I download Itunes, I lose my DVD drive. I have read on the internet that this is an Apple problem that they will not address, but apparently it is not happening all that much with Windows 7, mostly Vista. i was able to get the Drive to be recognized through a few steps that were not all that hard.
