I have an HP pavilion slimline s3600f desktop pc and the optical disk drive doesn't seem to be reading cd's or DVD's.


Check the Device Manager to make sure that the OS does not have any issues with the device. If there is an exclamation point ( ! ), then Windows has issue with it. If there is an " ! " then right-click on the device and select update driver.

If the drive shows in My Computer, right-click on the drive and select "eject" from the list. This will verify that the OS is talking to the device.

Check your BIOS settings to make sure that it appears in the BIOS and is not disabled.

Also, Microsoft recently released an update to disable Auto-Play on CD/DVD drives. If Auto-Play isn't working (due to this update), then put a music/movie cd/dvd into the drive and open Windows Media player and try to play the disc through there.

The drive may not be "broken" it just may be that auto-play has been turned off by Microsoft.

My computer no longer "sees"


hello
at end of this instruction set, see link to review more questions/answers,as your issue with CD/DVD ROM will vary .


This document applies to HP and Compaq desktop computers with Windows XP, Me, and 98. Use this document to make Windows and the CD writing software recognize the CD or DVD writer drive. Start at Step 1; do not skip to other sections until Step 1 has been completed. Step 1: Does Windows detect the CD or DVD drive? Use Device Manager to determine if Windows is recognizing the drive:
  1. In Windows XP, click Start , and right-click My Computer . In Windows 98 and Me, right-click the My Computer icon on the desktop.
  2. In Windows XP, select Properties , click the Hardware tab, and then click the Device Manager button. In Windows 98 and Me, select Properties , and click the Device Manager tab.
  3. Click the plus sign (+ ) next to DVD/CD-ROM Drives (or similar) category.
  4. Do the following depending on what is listed in the DVD/CD-ROM drives category:
    • If the CD or DVD drive name is missing , the drive is not being detected by Windows. Close Device Manager and skip to the section CD or DVD drive is not recognized by Windows .
    • If a drive name is shown but is disabled (icon is marked with a red X, c00877300.gif ), the drive has been disabled. Right-click the drive name and select Enable . You may have to restart the computer to complete the enabling process. The drive should work correctly once it has been enabled. NOTE: If the drive cannot be enabled, a required service or driver that the drive needs is not functioning or has been disabled. Click the plus sign next to IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers and troubleshoot any problems found according to any error codes in Device Manager. Resetting the BIOS may also resolve this problem.
    • If a drive name is shown but contains an alert icon (an icon marked with an alert symbol, c00877301.gif ), then use the section Using Device Manager error codes to troubleshoot the problem. You may also use the next section Disc burning software does not recognize the original drive to reset the drive configuration.
    • If the CD or DVD drive is listed as normal but your disc burning software does not recognize the drive, Device Manager shows no special icons c00877302.gif . Windows is detecting the drive but the writing software does not. Leave Device Manager open and continue with the next section Disc burning software does not recognize the original drive .


here is a link that will give you several other questions and answers to CD/DVD ROM issues.

No sound for windows xp


It is possible that your computer doesn't have the audio driver for your device. For you to verify that you need to check it in the device manager.

If you are using windows xp
- click start
- click run
- type devmgmt.msc then press enter
- the device manager window will pop-up
- If you see any yellow question mark it means that there is no driver installed for that device, it's also possible that the audio driver is included there. (if that's the case then you can just install the audio driver for your computer using the CD that you have with the package)
- if you see a red x mark for the audio controller, that means that the audio device is disabled, to enable it, right click the disabled device and click on enable.

- Check the volume control of the computer if it's on mute or not

- Check your speakers if they are working or not, to prove it's working properly try to test it using your mp3 player. Check the audio cable if it's properly plugged in to your computer. Check the cable if the wiring is not broken. Or if you're only using the internal speaker, you can skip this step.

Verify the sound device is enabled If there is no sound from the speakers or headset, use the Device Manager to determine the state of the sound hardware.
  1. Click Start , type manager into the search field, and select Device Manager . Alternately, click Start , Control Panel , Hardware and Sound , and then Device Manager .
  2. Double-click Sound, video and game controllers .
  3. Do the following, depending on what is seen:
    • If a sound device is listed with a down arrow , the device is disabled. Right-click the sound device name and select Enable to re-enable the device. Go to the next step if problems continue after enabling the device.
    • If a sound device is listed and enabled , right-click the device name and select Properties to view more helpful troubleshooting information in the Device Status window. If Device Status shows that the device is working properly, the problem is likely related to sound settings, the speakers, or the audio cables and connections.
