It probablyneeds a new driver but, go to your device manager and click on the exclamation point and see what it recommends.

Dvd drive won't open


Might have a stuck disc. Use a straightened paper clip in small pin hole of the CD drive to manually eject.

My Compaq Presario 1700T will not play DVD anymore. It worked before. Now when I insert a DVD I can hear DVD spin for about 2 seconds then it stops spinning momentarily, then it spins for another 2...


IT'S 16 years old, there is no support for it now. sorry.

we get these here all the time, and no OS stated
why post with out stating what OS this is,
?w98, w2k, XP, VISTA,W7,W8, w8.1 W10.?
nor showing the DVD model there, it has s specific model name
and number (vast types used and sold)
DVD from store, or one you made or others made by hand.
home made or factory made store bought DVD?'
did you try this?
did you try other DVD movies? or look for the VOB files on them?>
Testing 123, easy to harder,
1: try a music CD first. store bought not home made.
2: look for files on any install CD, using the local file manager.
my computer, this computer, or what ever ms calls it this year.
we look to see if the PC can see the files on a real CD. first.

even the HP install CD, or other CD that are not for music or movies, if it cant read a CD, and see fails drive is bad.
or its drivers are missing or corrupted,(virus or?)

3: if this fails open the control panel, (start , CP) then look in device manager (on XP it tricky to get there so tell us if it's XP)
no OS stated, so....no operating system stated.
if the Device manager fails to show the DVD DRIVE,
this means :
A: bad. drive.
B: drivers for the drive are missing (hp has them if still HP DVD drive)
C: the OS is corrupted.
D: running XP , the Dead OS, with out SP3 service pack 3 will be very bad experience in all ways. it has DVD driver in said pack.
E: not running the HP drivers, that hp has. (but HP does not support 16 year old PCs at all) so getting them now is super hard.



the users manual mentions windows 98.
omg is it that old?
the same manual says , only select models has DVD drive.
to make DVD work , special software from HP was installed.
From HP, not MS.
there is a free manual for your PC

My dvd drive doesnt open on my Compaq Presario SR2150NX, i finally got it open with the manual open, but im trying to install windows 7 on it, but when i try it says theres something wrong with something...


Hello,

Check to see if the DVD drive is connected to the power supply and the IDE connectors.
Can your dvd drive be displayed in "My Computer"
If yes, then it is connected, so, you will have to reinstall the drivers. They could be corrupted?

Thank you for using Fixya,
Kenneth

I have a compaq presario cq 60 laptop with Vista - i don't understand how to access the CD-ROM drive - I would normally expect it to appear as an additional drive using the Explore function, but I can't...


Normally it would show up in "my Computer" as a drive, if it is not, then the computer is acting like it is not installed or not enabled. Go to the device manager and look for the dvd drive there and see what the properties say. Put the computer on its back and with a small phillips screwdriver, remove the screw that holds the drive to the motherboard. Now flip the laptop back on its feet and insert an open paperclip into the small hole in the door of the dvd drive bezel, this willphysically trip the door to open. Pull the door and tray out and keep pulling and the rest of the drive will follow. Power up your laptop with the drive missing and access "My Computer" and see if anything changes. Now,power down the laptop, remove the battery....wait 30 seconds and slide the drive in and make sure it seats all the way in, replace the hold down screw, replace the battery and power it up. Let windows recognize the drive and load drivers for it. If it does not read the drive, there may be an issue with either the interface on the drive or the socket on the motherboard.

Suddenly my dvd drive for compaq c700 presario wont appear on my computer and also it wont open and no light was appearing on the said drive


hmm, if the light is out the drive is probably dead. since it's a laptop prety much the only reliable source for parts is going to be here: http://www.compaq.com/country/cpq_support.html

just go through the "solve a problem" process and you will eventualy be directed to either the warranty service or the parts department depending on how old your machine is.
