I have a new HP - Pavilion dv7-3112sa Refurbished Laptop. The Disk drive is not playing DVDs or CD ROMs. It will play audio CDs fine but when I put in a DVD or CD ROM it just buzzes but does nothing.


It sounds like the drive may be bad. You may want to try getting any updates that may be available from the manufacturer. Also if it does not work you could try reinstalling the drive.
To do this go to start > right click on my computer or computer > select properties > click on the hardware tab > then select device manager > within the device manager look for DVD/CD-ROM drives > click the plus symbol on left > double click the cd dvd drive > this will open the dvd properties within here click the Driver tab on the top of screen > then click uninstall button. > Once uninstall ed restart computer. When the computer is loading back up it will reinstall the dvd drivers.
If this does not resolve the issue contact the PC manufacturer.

Try to uninstall and then reinstall the driver for the DVD rom. Also, make sure you have a DVD application software that you can use to play those DVDs; like Realplayer.

After I reinstalled my pc, the toshiba dvd-rom (sd-c2502) only plays cds, not dvds.


Try re-installing your the driver for your dvd rom. Then try to put different dvds and check if it can read from your drive. If problem remains, I suspected it's your dvd rom is faulty

DVD drive plays dvds but does not recognize audio cds.


Common problem. If it's not of the software or dusty optics of the drive, it's because the lasers used to read DVDs and CDs are different. Sometimes fails only one of them. Take it to your local repair center or warranty service or... buy in addition CD-ROM/CD-RW drive

Cannot read CDs, can read DVDs


If it would have been a soft problem it wouldn't have worked at all, the driver is for the unit, not just for a function. Most likely it's a HW problem: either the laser died or the lens is dirty - try cleaning it.
Btw if your unit can't read cd's how those morons at the shop expect that you could reinstall (or repair) your Windows? 
Test your unit your self: take it out, put it in another laptop (or in an external case and attach it to another pc and check there. If it's dead then replace it with a new one - preferably a dvd-writer of any mark.
