You will need both the drive and the software installed to play DVDs on your system.

Since you didn't post the details of your current system configuration and what operating system you have, I can't give you a more detailed answer.

Can hp Pavilion a300n read Dvds ? i want to watch a dvd movie. But,when i insert the disc into the tray, the computer doesn't detect anything.. nothing shows up. What should i do?


Yes and no, Yes if it id fitted with a DVD player/recorder (normally says DVD on the front of the tray door) if not it will say CD. They are quite cheap to buy and easy to replace. Just as an after thought. I presume you can play CDs in it? if not then you might have a driver problem or it might be broken, try a music cd in it to check.

Can you please tell me what kind of CD-RW DVD=ROM Drive I need to buy to replace the broken one in my HP Compaq Presario SR1610NX Desktop and where? Thanks


Since you have a desktop this is very easy. Take the side covers off after unplugging it. Remove the ROM drive and note where the plugs are disconnected. Take it down to walmart of radio shack, best buy...etc and they will help you with another. Most all of them are compatible and pretty cheap. Should be a snap to put it back in as instructions come with the new unit. I wish the best of luck with you and thanks for using FixYa.

My cd rom keeps saying no disc and the computer


First thing to try is to clean the DVD lense. a lense cleaner can be purchased any from Best-Buy to Wal-Mart. It's essentially a CD with a built in brush. This will clean the lense.

if that doesn't work, it may be time to replace the drive. DVD-ROM drives can be purchased for as little as $20 now, it may be worth your time to just replace it. It is possible that the motor that spins the DVD has gone bad, but it is highly unlikely.

When i cutoff my hp dc5000 loose date and doing F1


I would assume you need a new CMOS battery. DC5000's take CR2132 Watch batteries (you can purchase these at Wal-Mart or any drugstore or whereever watch batteries are sold) Simply purchase the battery, open the case to your computer, and replace the similar part. Your date/time should be retained after installing the batter and resetting the time.

Keyboard


Best to just replace the keyboard instead of trying to replace a missing key. Keyboards are made cheap and is a common part that is sold in almost any wal-mart, target, k-mart store in the elctronics section. If you have an expensive wireless keyboard from a manufatcurer like logitech, you may be able to get a replacement key from them. Contact the manufacturer for more information.
