CD ROM not working

My HP Pavilion dv 5000 has stopped reading my CD's and games. I put them in and nothing happens. I can't even see them in the Device Manager or under My Computer. I am not Computer Savvy so Lay-man's terms would be best.

Dvd rom not working


That usually means the drive has failed and needs to be replaced. You may have noticed that it was slower and noisier shortly before it stopped. It probably stopped be able to burn dvds, then cd first, then it had problems reading dvds but would read cd's then finally nothing. Thats the typical pattern. Some just go from normal to nothing but thats not as common.

The cd/dvd drive is a simple repair and easily attempted. There is one screw that holds the drive in place on thebottom. Undo that screw and the drive slides out. Push the new drive in and put the screw in and you are done.

You can buy a replacement drive from several places including HP. You want to get it from a third party not HP. HP charges more. You should check to see if you have any warrenty either from HP or the store. they will replace this under warrenty. A replacement drive for this looks to be rather expensive at $200+ even from third party suppliers. Those can be found simply by searching for 'laptop replacement parts' using google or bing. Then looking up your specific model.

the motor went bad in the drive if its not even trying to spin the disc. The only option at this point is to get the drive replaced.

Our hp pavilion 4535 will not read discs


I'm thinking of a couple of solutions:
  1. Auto run as turned off, navigate to your drives (usually in the My Computer icon) and check for your disc drive (usually Drive D:). If it is showing a disc then you can right-click and open to see the contents or double click for an auto-play.
  2. If you open up the drives and don't see a CD ROM drive then it might have gotten dropped some how. In this case you will want to go to the device manager and check to see if the CD ROM drive is listed and if it needs some fixing.
