Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

My laptop has dvd player,it plays cd but doesnot recognizes dvd,


Answers :

My HP was doing some strange things. It would take c.d. music/some games/ some dvd movies. But, not all. I got a tip. I was told to get the firmware from HP. I went to their site and after going into troubleshooting and support, filling in a few things........I found the firmware. I downloaded for free right on the webpage with instructions. Now, My HP DVD/CD Writer 200j is working great. I hope this is helpful. I know I was bonkers before someone gave me this tip. I still don't know what firmware is but HP did.
