    We created a recovery disc from another laptop of exactly the same make as this was purchased at the same time.



    I have also noticed a problem with the CD Rom. The wire underneath has a huge crease in it so I presume this can cause problems.



    I am going to take the cd rom out of the other laptop and put it in this one and see if that is also a problem.



    As I say HP were very unhelpful and did not seem to want to know.



    I also work in IT but this laptop is my friends daughters and she would have no chance of understand what HP were asking her.



    thanks for this I will check the hard drive tonight and get back to you if I've still had no luck.



    Also going to burn another recovery disc but on DVD this time.

    I have the same problem. Prior to reading this I had already tried removing the hard drive and reinstalling it (physically) but the motherboard still can't find the hard drive. I'd like to know if this is simply a hard drive problem where I can buy a new hard drive or if it's a motherboard problem where I have to buy a new computer. HP acts as though they know it's a defect that they don't want to deal with. Biggest problem, it happened 2 months out of warranty.

It sounds to me, since you said it was dropped, that the hard drive may have lost its firm connection to the motherboard. This would cause a bootable disc message to appear since the computer cannot find the operating system stored on the hard drive.

I would try removing the hard drive and reseating it.
Not sure if this is your exact model, but here is a maintenance guide for the C700 (see page 41 for replacing the hard drive, but in your case it will just be removing the hard drive and putting it back in.)
http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01301275.pdf

If this is not the correct manual for your model, you can find a list of all C700 models here. http://h20180.www2.hp.com/apps/Lookup?h_pagetype=s-001&h_client=S-A-R163-1&h_page=hpcom&submit.y=0&submit.x=0&lang=en&cc=us&y=0&x=0&h_lang=en&h_cc=us&h_query=Presario+C700&x=0&y=0

If reseating the hard drive doesn't work, let me know and I can walk you through some other steps.

Also, can you clarify that what disc you inserted in the drive to get that error?

Hope this helps! : )

My presario c700 wont read a disc, but when i go into system info, it says disc drive working correctly?


If its just one particular disc it won't read then its the disc, if it won't read any disc then its the drive.
Most likely the lens may be dirty, unless its a moving parts fault.
All professional advice says "do not touch the lens" but I have in the past used a can of compressed air to clean the lens and get more use from a drive, I've also used a very very soft cloth to gently clean the lens, failing that I've replaced the drive.

Driver problem


Best choice is installing drivers from HP website.

Here is the download page for C700, select proper model, different models may have different audio, video and ethernet drivers. On next step you will be asked to select OS (windows version), then you can download drivers for all devices listed.
If some model does not have specific drivers, try generic c700 model download.


Additionally here is the user manual

This will create a swsetup folder in C drive ("C:\sp36090")

Installing this driver may result in an error. But continue with the following steps to get the audio driver installed correctly.

1. Click on Start and select Run. Now type devmgmt.msc and press enter.

2. Right click on "Audio device on High Definition Audio Bus" and click Update driver.

3. Select "Install from a list or specific location"

Download and install Conexant modem driver (sp36089). This will give error message and also will create a folder C:\swsetup\sp36089 which contains extracted driver files.

The same method which is used for installing audio driver needs to be followed for modem.
