Most DVD drives have two lenses - one for CD's and another to read DVD's. It could be that the CD lens on your drive is failing. Try using a CD lens cleaner (available in most electronic shops). If that doesnt work, then the lens is scratched and will have to be replaced.
If that is the case, then I suggest buying a new DVD drive, as it would be cheaper than attempting a repair.

Sound problem after upgrading windows


see let me tell you that windows 7 makes a computer very slow and may be your lapp's configuration supports windows 7 but could not process the datas.it seems to be a load on the lappy.still you can get the sound,by installing the lappy's motherboard disc where you will get the audio and video drivers.actually windows 7 does not need any audio or video drivers but windows 7 has the upgraded drivers which is not suitable for the lappy.so you need to install your own drivers which are compatible.

Hp compaq 6720s says pxe - e61


PXE is the boot option from a bootable network card, so basically the BIOS isn't seeing any of your bootable drives and going trying to PXE-boot off your network. Check the boot options in your BIOS and make sure your drives are detected by the BIOS. If they are not listed, then the drive has likely gone bad.

CD/DVD player doesn't read disc


Unless it's a hardware problem, (physically damaged, replace drive), then it sounds like a driver issue. Over time drivers (the software that runs the hardware) can be corrupted, get into a compatability conflict with new programs, or lost by the system. You obviously can't reinstall the drivers from your recovery discs, but you can (usually) download them from your manufacturer's website.

In your Start menu's search, type Device Manager. Open DM and expand the + next to DVD/CD-ROM drives.

If your drive is not listed in there, then it's not installed, download it's software from your manufacturer's website.

If your drive is listed but has a 9b861c0.gif next to it, then there's a driver problem. Double click the drive and note what it says under "Device Status" on the General tab. Go to the Driver tab and click "Update Driver..." Choose "Search automatically for updated driver software" and Windows will search both your computer and the internet for the proper drivers for your device.

Even if your drive is listed and it's status is "device is working properly" you may still need to reinstall the drivers. Often there can be a driver conflict that your computer is not aware of to report back. In any case, before replacing the drive you'll definately want to try fixing the drivers.

Hope this helps
