Question about HP Pavilion a705w PC Desktop
you have either one of these ..
5187-5619 = DVD-ROM/CD-RW combination drive - 48X CD-R write, 32X CD-RW rewrite, 48X CD-ROM read, 16X DVD-ROM read
EL436-69001 = 48X DVD-ROM CD-R/RW optical drive - 48X read, 32X read, 48X read, 16X max write speed
make sure you buy CDs or DVDs which are speed compatible to your optical drive or COMBO drive speeds
if you are busying compatible speed CD media, then take some compressed air (can) and clean the drive bay and inside the optical drive area, to dedust it .
go to this site and review all the related sites .. read carefully and try to figure out what the possibility (issue) is .
if ALL this fails, you may have to replace the DRIVE itself
i hope this helps
