Dvd player not working

One of the most common problems encountered on a DVD player on a laptop is that the DVD tray does not eject. There could be several reasons why; one is that the drive does not sit on the bay. The screw is either loose or missing. In this case, try removing and reinstalling the swappable DVD tray. Make sure that the release latch snaps to the locked position and then screw it on tightly. If the DVD tray does not eject even when the drive is properly seated, power down and use the emergency pinhole on the front faceplate. Do this with the DVD trays for swappable types. Another cause of the DVD tray not ejecting is that there is a broken DVD disk stuck inside. Insert a paperclip through the pinhole on the front of the DVD tray. Then, when the DVD tray ejects halfway through, remove the broken pieces of the DVD. If the problem with the DVD tray not ejecting is due to the ejector mechanism, it may not be practical to do the repair on your own. A DVD Is Not Recognized by the DVD Player b> If the DVD movie does not play on your laptop's DVD player, it could be due to dirt or smudges on the disk. Clean the DVD with a nice lint-free cloth, and then inspect for scratches and surface build-up. If cleaning does not work, check if the drive can read other CDs or DVDs. Test using a brand new factory-sealed DVD. If it still does not work, that means the problem is not the disk but the DVD drive could be broken and may need replacing. If the DVD does not play, it could be that your DVD player needs a CODEC (Coder/Decoder). There are some downloads available online to update your CODEC. If the problem is software-related, find a way to fix it by calling the software manufacturer instead of downloading the CODEC each time you want to play a DVD. They may be able to send you a patch that you can install to fix the problem. DVD Drive Failure On rare occasions, you would see hardware failure errors during boot up. This shows up as "DVD Drive Failure" error, or the drive disappears from the CMOS (complementary metal oxide semiconductor) set up. This could be due to the drive electronics failure, which may be why the DVD drive has stopped communicating. You can remove and reinstall the DVD driver or software and then test the connection. If it still does not see the DVD drive, you can remove and reinstall the DVD tray and see if that would fix the problem. If the problem persists, it may be time to replace the DVD drive with a new one. Hope this helps.

HP HDX X16t-1200 web cam not working

Download the webcam driver from HP.

Get online and got to In the google search box type: "HP Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Download and install the Webcam drivers.

You have to open the webcam software to activate or start the webcam. There is no button to push or switch to turn on. The webcam software is somewhere in the program list. Click Start/Programs then search for any reference to webcam or camera. Sometimes the webcam might be inside one of the manufacturers folders in the program list so search the folders for it. Some manufacturers have something like Entertainment Experience that will open and show all the entertainment devices such as the dvd drive, webcam, media player, etc. if you see it click it to launch it then click on the webcam or camera icon.

Try using ManyCam

You can always download Manycam and install it. Go to and in the search box type: "" (without the quotes). Click on the link to go to the site. When the site opens look down on the left and you will see a gray area that says Find Software. Type "Manycam" (without the quotes) in the white search area then hit the search mirror. When it brings back your results look for the one that says ManyCam Virtual Webcam. Down load it and install it. Make sure you remove the check box on any junky programs it would like to install. You only want to install ManyCam, no additions whatsoever during the install. ManyCam is totally FREE and easy to use, and you will always know where your webcam software is.

I have windows 7 and a pretty stock sony vaio VPCEH12FXB laptop and for some reason my webcam wont work. whenever i try to open it or use oovoo it just tells me that my webcam is either not connected or in...

If your webcam worked before this problem then you probably have a hardware issue. The webcam is installed on your LCD display panel. This is connected to the system board via a cable. It's possible the cable became dislodged from the webcam or the system board due to opening the LCD display to use the laptop.
Go to device manager to see if the webcam appears in list of devices. If not then
you will need to have the laptop repaired by Sony or competent repair shop.

My keyboard and mouse external is still working but when i plugged in my separate webcam it says annoying word like "USB NOT RECOGNIZED" my flash drive got also same error as my webcam any...

Hi icantchoosey ,

The reason why your system won't recognized the external webcam is due to missing driver. You need to download the driver of your external webcam and install it to your system. The easiest way to download the driver is by going to the device manufacturer's support website. If you're now at the download page, look for the driver that matches your operating system. Now, after downloading, install the driver then restart your system.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I brought a DC 6145 Laptop Webcam. The CD will not download due to my cd drive being knackered basically. Where can i download the driver for this particular model Thanking you in advance

sometimes when you see this at the device manager in the DVD/Cd rom part, this doesnt mean you actually need to download another driver nor uninstall reinstall in right away, try this one first:

if you are using windows XP

- click start
- click run, in the run type in regedit
you will see a registry editor window
in the registry editor window

- click the + sign at the hkey_local_machine
- click the + sign of system
- click the + sign of currentcontrolset
- click the + sign of control
- click the + sign of class

there will be bunch of random letters and number under that control
try to find this one

if you click this check if you will be able to see DVD rom at the right side of the registry editor window
you must delete the upper and lower filters
after that restart the computer and try to put in dvds

for vista or win7

- click start and type in the start search regedit
after this just do the same thing with the win xp instructions
try also to update the DVD codec. you can also try to download the most updated windows media player, power DVD or any software/program that have dvd codecs or that acts like a player for DVD

i hope this works.
