    Post Compaq laptop cd/dvd drive not working!

    I'm fixing a compaq presario v6000 laptop for my friend the problem seems to be with the cd/dvd drive.

    If you put in a disc you hear it spin up but the drive doesn't even show up on my computer.

    If i do need to replace it can you point me to a good "cheap" place to buy Ive opened and repaired laptops before.

    any help or advice is much appreciated


    When i go into device manager it says "Windows cannot load the device for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing"

    I cant find the driver anywhere on the internet is a Compaq Presario V6000 dvd drive "TSSTcorp CD/DVD TS-L632D" if you find it that would be sweet!

    But i think the device comes with the driver on it and the real issue may be that there not talking correctly.

    Delete the driver to get rid of the corrupt one and then restart. Should reload the driver on restart. If not go to add hardware and add it back.

    edit, oops forgot the place to get the driver for adding back: Here.

    Maybe it's some dirt on the laser. And you can follow this one: to clean it. If this does not help, you can temporarily convert your DVD to USB, then stream the content to your computer, you can follow this guide: If the drive's died, you need to but another one.
