Having problems with your HP Pavilion DV2740SE Laptop ?

Dvd plays initially and then stops

\015 After playing for about ten minutes, the dvd freezes and then the picture disappears and I see the main HP Quickplay display which says there is no DVD in the drive. At this point the computer is not recognizing that there is a DVD in the drive, the cd/dvd drive is no longer listed in My Computer. I can't get it to recognize any cd or dvd after this has happened. Please help!\015

Answers :

Hi,
It could be the drivers for CD/DVD.
The best way to troubleshoot this is right click on computer, select manage. A new window will pop up, in that list select device manager.
Look in the list for CD/DVD drives and click on the + sign next to it, when the tree opens right click on the CD/DVD drive and select uninstall, then restart the PC.

This method will hard reset the system and force windows to load the default drivers for the CD/DVD upon restart. Hopefully this should resolve your problem.
If not please post back.

Good luck
