Compaq Presario 2700 windows 7 CD/DVD/RW problems

Hello, I have a laptop Compaq Presario 2700 and it won't play all the discs in the cd rom. It WILL eject it and try to load it because it I can hear and see turn but then my computer tells me to insert a disc. Windows Media player and Nero all say the same thing. Ive updated all drivers and my computer says there is NO problem. However my smart, family of Mobile Intel 965 express chip card is having issues ive uninstalled and reinstalled and nothing works. I seatched my computer and before I upgtaded for Windows 7, the smart card has a chipset 945 express. Help! I love my rock ' n roll and burning cd and its been almost a year without my cd/dvd. Thank you very much Karen

When you insert a disc, you are able to view the data on the drive in Windows Explorer?  Since you have attempted to load the non - RW disks and still nothing happens that looks like it could be the drive itself.  Did you go to the Web of Compaq site to check for the latest drivers, firmware and any type of updates?

  • Compaq Presario 5140: Compaq Presario 5140 windows Installation

    Okay so im trying to install ANY OS I have windows 2000, windows xp and linux. which none will him past the installation phase. It copies everything on the hard drive, but it can not find the disk hard once it restarts to complete the installation. I tested all three memory banks and the ram installed in them it has lots of power and the 2 400 MHz pentium running a little hot, but is a very good. I can do it in the bios but it's no help at all as I can NOT configure the list of devices first start-up, it is simply not available. As indicated in the title is an older compaq presario 5140; around 1998. Please send me an Email with some pointers or help. and my God not spammed not me saying to empty all the thing in a trash can! I like the older computers.

    I found the answer myself. This applies to the Windows XP operating system to not initiate systems with blinking cursor error.

    as with any startup in the bios section.

    1 Startup Repair windows running with installation or repair disk and guest disk open command
    2 run the fixboot command
    3. run the fixmbr command
    4. run chkdsk /r /p command
    5. disconnect all IDE connections, then restart. This will update your bios.
    6. make sure that the HARD drive is plugged into the motherboard of the PRIMARY IDE connection.  to find out what he just plug in each IDE plug and restart it until it starts.
    7 replugin other ide connections you disconnected earlier.
    8. check the HARD drive and set jumpers as "cable select".
    and BAM enjoy the operating system start now.

    Thanks the guy who gave me the generic answer without doing a
    background on the system of the computer in question.

    ID give you a negative vote if I could.

  • Compaq Presario c300 - Windows XP Recovery disk is not hard drive

    Compaq Presario c300 - S/No: CND6441F50 Prod No.: #ABU - Windows XP Media Center RT150EA

    When you try to restore a new copy of Windows XP and after booting with a Windows startup disk, download to the point where you can select "recovery or install new ones.

    When I press F3, it gives a message that the hard disk is not installed and I should check the connections of power supply, etc..  However, I can run XP from hard disk. And I checked through 'System' that the h/d driver works fine?

    The laptop is 2006 and the disc does a lot of 'Beating' when even simple are requested - where the need to re - install Windows.  (Tried to frag!).

    Can anyone suggest something outside the upgrade? Thank you

    Did you run a self test on the hard drive? You said that you can run XP from the drive, but it runs well? Looks like to me this drive is defect and the cause of these issues. Here's how you can run a self-test:

    Let me know if there going to fail the test.

    Thank you!

    I have a Compaq Presario CQ43-206TU to fix here and ive some problems that I had to reinstall windows 7 x 86 and the first problem is the work of dosent FN key at all. Ive installed the tool recommended HP without effect.

    The second thing is dosent it driver Bluetooth install well watch upward with the error in Device Manager.

    one thing I did prior to the relocation is an update of the bios to version F37, but there is also no setting for Bluetooth or shortcut keys to activate.

    Before the bios updated and the reinstall the wifi led on the keyboard was red and now its red until windows starts and that it turns white. The FN key worked before as well.

    How can I get that all the work?


    Ive solved the problem. I had to disable the key mode in the bios and it worked after. Bluetooth is another problem windows update installed a new driver who caused problems after a reinstall of windows (just delete driver has not worked for me) and by the use of hp, it worked.


  • Compaq Presario cq5500y: Windows 7 HP for Windows 7 Pro

    Necessary to reinstall an OS from customers.
    They had Windows 7 Pro (no CoA) so I had the CD - Key on the HDD using Magical Jelly Bean Key Finder.
    I installed Windows 7 Home Premium using the certificate of authenticity supplied with the PC.
    When I went to upgrade to Windows 7 Pro using Windows Anytime Upgrade it worked.
    After a restart during the weekend, I noticed that Windows said it has not been activated.
    I tried to turn it on again, and he says that the key is invalid for activation.
    I then decided to call Microsoft to get the CD - Key sorted.
    They informed me that the CD - Key has been locked by the OEM and I needed to contact them to get unlocked.
    I did some more research about me and noticed that the CD - Key I is a key of SPL from HP.
    With this key means that I can't reinstall Windows 7 Pro?
    Should I use the OEM recovery media to operate correctly?
    I am looking for advice on what the next step is that M$ I directed here.

    Thanks again,


    Robert, welcome to the forum.

    It is a forum for helping hand in hand. The only presence that HP has on this are Admins and Mods. Otherwise, none of us works for HP.

    That said, the computer comes with Win 7 Home Premium (64 bit) installed.  Therefore, I do believe that you have used the product key works for installation of Win 7 Pro.  HP would have no information for you, because the computer is well over 6 years (released in April 2009).

    The recovery disks system refers to the original with Win 7 Home Premium Setup.

    Please click on the Thumbs up button '+' if I helped you and click on "Accept as Solution" If your problem is resolved.
