Laptops are very tricky to open...it is much better to look for a nearest compaq support center and have it checked by their own technician.

Can't read DVD, it only read CD-rom


try uninstalling, then re-installing the driver to see if that helps. If not, your optical drive took a dump and you will have to replace it.

How to install operating system on laptop with now cd-rom drive or floppy


Did you change the '1st boot' drive to the optical drive?
If you haven't, you need to enter the BIOS setup and change from C: to whatever your optical drive is named and then change it back once the operating system is installed on the C: drive.

Compaq armada e500 dvd rom doesn't work


Try cleaning the lense using a lense cleaning disk.

Unfortunately it sounds as the drive is on the way out :(

Dvd are harder for it to read than cds so they are normally the first thing to stop working.

Dvd/cd drives dont require drivers as they are plug and play (aka plug and play!! :)

Best not to update the firmware as if it goes wrong then the drive will be dead.

Boot up with no operating system


When the system starts, hold the F10 key and go into BIOS and set CD Rom as 1st Boot device (in Boot Order). Because most Compaq's would put the BIOS in a hidden NON-DOS partition on the hard drive, you may have to get an OEM recovery disk for that model. Because there is no BIOS to go to, the machine doesn't know it has a CD, HD or Floppy to go to. A boot floppy/CD is no help. Alternative 1: With another desktop and IDE to Laptop HD connector, FDISK (make active partition and hidden partition [5mb]), Format both, copy the cabs from WinME CD to c:\windows\options. Alternative 2: Find the COMPAQ OEM CD for that model. Since there was no exact model number Click here Please indicate whether this is helpful or not.
