Question about HP Compaq Presario V6000T Notebook

1 Answer

CD/DVD Drive stopped working

The other day I was playing a computer game and the drive was working just fine and then I tried to watch a movie and all of a sudden it didn't work. I just thought it was that DVD, but then yesterday I tried to play the computer game again and the drived didn't work at all. And now it doesn't want to play anything. I went through all the help and support stuff. I uninstalled and reinstalled the driver and even went online for some personal help. Nothing has worked and I don't know what to do. I was told that I would just have to get a new one, but I have only had the computer for a year and a half so it just doesn't make any sense. Is there anything that I haven't tried that might work?

PS3 wont play game but will play DVD's


The laser in the dvd drive requires different strengths to read different discs. If its reading movies and not games then the laser is starting to go bad in it. You can either replace the laser if your tech save to open up the ps3 and opening up the dvd drive, or you can just get another drive to put in there. Either one you can get from Ebay fairly cheap.

Xbox 360 will play movies but not games


you cannot just replace the old dvd drive with a new one, you need to take the key from the old drive and then place it onto the new drive so it will work. all xbox 360 drives have a security key. If you still have your old drive then you may be ok and it may be that a technician can do the work for you. www.fixmyconsole.co.uk

Cant play DVD ROMs


you can try uninstalling the drive, by going to my computer, right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager and look down the list for cd/dvd drives, click on '+' sign and right click on your drive make and select uninstal. Restart pc and your drive will be reinstalled automatically again. If you have a cd cleaner disc run that also. Try to run the game again, although it may still not work as the drives laser seems to be out of line or simply run it's life, and a new drive is the only answer i'm afraid.
