The blu-ray has been an $200 optional extra, you have it only if you have specially ordered it when you bought the laptop and paid the extra price.  If you haven't payed it then you have the normal DVD-writer and a sticker saying that if you pay some more money you can put a blu-ray unit in.

I recently bought this laptop and thought that it was able to play blu-ray movies. When I put a blu-ray in and push play, it say that there is no disk in player. Also, if all I have is a dvd player, can...

No disk means that the BR disk is not recognized as present . Don't push play, open Computer instead and see what the disk is labeled: if it appears as a DVD-RAM, you have to install a new BR player unit - the optical unit itself. If the disk appears with its name then the software player you were trying to use works only for dvd's, you need a BR one and the correct codec. You can get both from here

Drive f wont play bluray dvd says no disc in drive

I don't think that model came with a blu-ray drive. I would look at the side of the drive and make sure it specifically says Blu-Ray on it......unless you get a blu-ray drive as a special option, I doubt your laptop has one. Thus, it would not be able to play blu-ray disks.

Good Luck

Dvd player can't play blue ray disk

If you have an earlier model Compaq, it most likely a DVD ROM player. Check the printing on the drive tray, if it says DVD ROM then it cannot play Blu ray disks.

If your laptop is still in factory specs (no extra added) then no, it can't because it doesn't have a blu-ray optical unit. That sticker is there to tell you that it's supported, as in you can replace your dvd-rw unit with a blu-ray one. In that case you will need a media player that can play blu-ray movies - the best one is VLC.

No read blu ray disk

Look to see if your system came with a blu-ray dvd player. Cause according to the specs to your sysem it comes with a dvd+-rw drive which means it can play original dvds as well as movies on a dvd+r and dvd-r. Look for the blu-ray logo on the front of your drive. It should look like this:

If it doesn't have that logo then that means your drive can't play blu-ray. If it does have the blu-ray logo and its not playing those discs then you need either a software program that will play blu-ray or your blu-ray dvd player has a weak laser and the drive would nee to be replaced.
