Did a system restore of compaq presario 5000 computer. cd/dvd player will not play gaming cds


See if it would play regular cd, then see if it would play dvd's. The reason is because most gaming cd now and days are dvd's and maybe your dvd-rom has a driver issue or the laser head isn't reading it. So try that first, then see if the drivers for the cd/dvd rom is working properly in the device manager. It may need a dvd coded software, try installing like powerdvd or something. If it still ain't working, and it can't play dvd's then your cd-drive could be history

Probably both will play a cd but sure that one will only record a DVD -/+ or a CD and the DVD recorder will play DVD's. If the CD player is a DVD player it will play DVD's and CD's but not record.

CD play function plays music, then fails priior to completion


Yeah if your spec doesn't meet the requirements it will hang. Also the most possible cause is fault in downloading or there is error on the file itself.

Hope this help.

No Sound when I play a DVD, but I do have sound when I play a Music CD


Open your sound controls to make sure nothing is muted or set on low volume.
If that's not the case, open your audio drivers program and check to see if nothing is muted.

DVD WONT PLAY IN LAPTOP BUT I CAN BURN AND PLAY AUDIO C'DS. I HAVE A COMPAQ PRESARIO V2000. WHEN I INSERTED DVD IT SAYS NO DVD INSERTED I CLEANED THE PLAYER AND STILL DOESN'T WORK CAN ANYONE HELP


Hi damonabrown your laptop should play dvd's even if it can't burn them

as you have cleaned the drive there is not much else you can do ,as it still play's cd's,
data on a dvd is packed much closer as it hold about 6 times the data of a cd, and can fail much easier, it looks like a new drive will be needed soon.

good luck
