hp dvdram gt80n issue

Q: hp dvdram gt80n issue

I own an HP Pavilion g6 with has the HP DVDRAM GT80N as its DVD RW. The laptop can detect the DVD RW, the OS recognizes it as a DVD RW Drive and the Device Manager does not have a (!) mark. Yet, every time I insert a DVD it doesn't read it. Kindly suggest things I need to check incase it is a hardware issue. Thanks in advance Jasdeep

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


DVD drive won't recognise blank discs.
I uninstalled the drive and hoped I could reconfigure the device once my notebook had restarted but Ive had no luck.
Not very clued up on how to reinstall the driver?
Please help ...

Would a system restore be the only way to resolve this problem?

I have a 2nd hard drive (drive "D") which I want to use as a "drag and drop" drive, just for backing up data files. However, it has been set up as a DVDRAM drive--it asks me for cd's.-- "waiting to write to a CD". How do I change the attributes? Should I reformat--will this take care of the problem?


Check Disk Management to see exactly what type of drive D:\ is. It must be an optical drive, and if you have a 2nd hard drive, it's probably a different letter or needs one to be selected.

First attempt to use, I get the info "not powered".  Won't read any discs.  Ckd hardware devices... get info (Microsoft): device set for "safe removal" and to unplug and replug device.   What?  This is not a USB device!  Do I have to open the laptop and scrounge around until I find a cable?  Surely not....


Go to Solution.


The optical drive can be safely removed and plugged back in by using the Ultrabay eject lever (located under the drive). Also pay attention to the latch at the right of the lever.

I have this weird behaviour on my Acer dekstop tower. The DVDRAM drive doesnt eject with button - the light is flashing but the tray doesnt come out, so I eject it with a pin. After putting a disc same - the light is flashing then nothing happens, its like going to sleep A few minutes later it awakes and you can burn a DVD without any problem.

What is the problem with it? Can I fix it ? I think its not caused by its driver/firmware, more likely physical mechanism or dust maybe ? Anyone had such problems?



Your System Specs don't say anything about the computer's specs. If it's a Desktop a replacement drive is quite reasonable, repairing one isn't worth the effort even if a shop can be found to do it. Same for a Notebook albeit a bit more costly. Both types can be found for less than $100US and probably half that.

I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop that is only four months old. The DVD is no longer recognized by Windows Vista. Device Manager says the driver is corrupted. I tried uninstalling and rebooting several times but it didn't fix the problem. I have tried to find a replacement driver on the internet with no success. Toshiba's website didn't even offer it. Anyone know where I can find the software for this? Thanks.

No driver is required thats why you can't find one. What you need to do is follow these instructions: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314060
The article is for Windows XP but the fix works for Vista as well, just delete the keys they mention in the registry and reboot to restore access to the drive.

It's an HP G6000 laptop. Vista Home Premium installed.
Reads DVDs but not audio or data CDs. It's apparently been doing this for about 2 or 3 weeks (It's not my laptop, but a friend's).
There's no other driver, and I've tried disabling and re-enabling it with no change.
I'm out of ideas other than to think the drive is going, but it seems odd that it would stop reading CDs first rather than DVDs. Any ideas?

Take a look at: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=5102512&CatId=11645 I can imagine two problems with the above adapter: 1. it draws electrical power from your computer's USB port, which might not be enough wattage for your DVD-drive; 2. the device probably was designed to identify itself to your computer as a "plug-and-play" DISK-DRIVE, not as a CD/DVD drive. The same web-site (Tiger Direct) has a complete external CD/DVD writer for $40 US -- not much more money than buying an adapter.

Hi there,

The DVD is in perfect working conditions because with Ubuntu it works perfectly.

Someone can help me to fix the problems? This problems seems appear after an update from Microsoft.

If you think the update installed another driver for you DVD player, you could try to go to properties in device managet and try to roll back the driver. Failing that, if you know the proper driver, select update driver, select choose from my computer, then select let me choose. The program will show all appropriate drivers installed in your computer. If that doesn't correct the problem, download the driver from HP. It should have an .exe file that will install without the DVD.

Hi gabrielkN!!!

You mention that you upgrade from XP to Vista, am I right? Ok, after you upgrade the OS, did the drive working fine? You might want to uninstall the device in device manager, and try to install the driver again. If it still doesn't work, you might want to consider deleting Upper Filter and Lower Filter, which can be done like this:

1. Open up Registry Editor (typing regedit in search field at start menu followed by Enter)

2. Create backup of your registry, by clicking File, Export. Save it to one of your folders

3. Scroll to the string below on the left pane there:

4. Locate any UpperFilters and LowerFilters on the right pane after you select the string from step 3.

5. Delete the UpperFilters and LowerFilters.

6. Restart the computer and see wether it works now

For more info, refer this article: Microsoft KB

Hope this helps

My optical drive is not playing CDs. It plays DVDs just fine, but seems to ignore CDs. Upon placing a CD in the tray, the drive will make noises as if its reading the data, but file explorer shows that the D drive, the CD Drive, is empty.

Ive confirmed that the CDs im using are not the problem by checking them on other laptops.

Theres no warnings beside the drive in Device Manager. There is a yellow question mark beside Modem Device on High Definition Audio Bus under Other Devices, but I dont know if thats related.

Toshiba (TSST) TS-L632 / HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-T40N ATA Device


I am looking for some perspective on an issue I am having. I have a Toshiba A305-6860 and it has been having driver issues for a little while. I just now got done doing an out of the box restore and the same issue is there, which hasn't happened before. The main current issues is with the optical drive driver. When the computer was new a while ago it had vista x64 hp installed. the optical drive then was called the Toshiba (TSST) TS-L632 it worked well, needed an update to take care of some 301 error but still worked after that. since i first got the pc i have had 7 on it, from the first beta released up to the RC 7100, which was the last installed OS before today's out of box install. before I had done the restore the DVD was showing in device manager as a HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-T40N ATA Device, since that has changed the drive only does some things, it was able to burn, but not able to read dvd's, in particular my new RTM 7600 copy of 7. It will however run the restore DVD's. Does anyone have any thing to add perhaps? I have tried every combination of uninstall/reboot/install, etc. I do not know why or when the device changed drivers, but roll back is not a highlighted option.

Install/reinstall the Intel motherboard chipset drivers. See if that helps. One of the things the chipset drivers do is define (identify) all the devices on the motherboard. The only drivers for optical drives (CD/DVD) is the default built in Windows drivers. If the device is not identified or properly identified then Windows won't "see" it.

Hey, I recently put together a PC and I've been having problems with it since. When I initially built it, the specs were:

i7 920 2.67GHz
Asus p6t Motherboard
8gb RAM
500gb Sata II HD
ATI Radeon HD 3870x2 (the card with with 2 GPU's)
500W unbranded PSU
1 added 120m coolermaster fan

Shortly after I started using my PC there was a power surge that knocked the power supply out. I recently got a new power supply. A 650W Silverstone PSU that I thought was more than enough for this. The problem that would occur now is that the computer would restart during games and sometimes while processing/rendering videos in adobe premiere.

When I would enable the 'crossfire' option on my card (to enable both GPU's to work) the computer would no longer just 'restart' the entire screen would hang or the colours would go out of sync shortly after which I'd have to restart the computer. This having happened I assumed the problem was with the graphics card, not the new 650W silverstone I got. I upgraded to a newer card; Asus Nvidia Geforce GTX460 768mb. The specs are now as follows:

i7 920 2.67GHz
Asus p6t Motherboard
8gb RAM
500gb Sata II HD
Asus Nvidia Geforce GTX460 768mb
650W silverstone PSU

You've got Asus motherboard, hence the first thing I'll look at considering the issues you are having, is at RAM settings/voltage in the board's BIOS, these should be exactly the same as on RAM packaging, but even that doesn't guarantee that it may not be the issue, so basically you'll need to fiddle around a bit with settings/voltage in case default specs doesn't work.

You may also consider stress testing your graphic card using OCCT (including vRam). Regards

Ok, I've checked a bunch of sites and seen people with similar issues, but none have exactly the same problems I'm having. I have Windows XP and frequently used ZoneAlarm, Spybot, Adaware and Spywareblaster. HJT did not solve this problem for me.

I cannot run/install antivirus because I get a "not a valid win32 application" message
cannot connect to wireless connection and shows error message when the wireless adapter loads (there's a spot for it next to the clock, but the icon's invisible)
sometimes reboots randomly without the win32 app message
sometimes goes to a black screen and then comes back, then showing a "system has recovered from a serious error, please tell Microsoft" message
shows a blue screen at startup saying win32/autocheck didn't work, then finishes startup through the login screen

The computer's a year old, running XP, and my boyfriend and I have no idea what's wrong with it (it's his). I'd put in hardware support but I don't know which piece of hardware may be corrupted, exploding as we speak, or what.

It began last night. He's done this before -- he has two monitors, one meant for a TV (I believe) and another old computer screen. Normally it runs on the TV one because it's bigger. He switched to the older one to show me how he can adjust the settings so that it's all vertical. That was great and dandy and we didn't expect any issues. He's done it before and it really isn't doing much to the computer.

Later, after midnight, he goes to switch everything back to normal. First, the computer acts like the monitor is there but that it can't do anything -- it tries to go into sleep mode or something. Then I suggest he unplug, shut down, plug things back in normally, and power back up. This appears to work.

I was a bit happy then, until we got to the XP loading screen. It's going... and then after, it flashes, then goes black. Nothing comes up, nothing does anything.

And so the three hour saga of last night begins. We restart, we spam F8, we get into safe mode, he disables Nvidia but can't open the application. Nor does his mouse function in safe mode (I know some don't, but it really doesn't help the situation). I've used my laptop to bring up shortcut keys and we're functioning through everything that way. He restarts after disabling Nvidia, an... Read more

I have a problem with a T7500 tower.
The unit doesn't pass the POST, bringing the solid light 1 and the 1-3-2 beeps code.  I guess I have the S8 code with the light:

It would seem to be a RAM memory issue.  If I remove the RAM in slot 1 and live the 2nd RAM in slot 2, it moves to light 1-3 issue with the same 1-3-2 beep code:
If I move the 2nd RAM in slot 1, I still have light 1-3 code and 1-3-2 beep code.
If I replace the 2nd RAM by the first RAM in slot 1, still 1-3 light code and 1-3-2 beep code.
If I place the 2 RAM in slot 2 and 3, I'm back to 1 light code and 1-3-2 beep code.
Using slot 1 & 3 gives the same light 1 code and 1-3-2 beep code.
Any use of slot 4, 5 or 6 brings the lights 1-3 solid on and 1-3-2 beep code which after reading the documentation seems normal (slot 1, 2 and 3 should be filled first).
However the unit will boot, pass the POST and BIOS if it is not used for few days.
I know that the BIOS is on version A16.
I've tried the Power Supply Diagnostic, which passed successful:

With all that I think it is hardware issue, but I don't understand why I can't succeed the POST with 1 RAM memory.
Or is the problem elsewhere e.g power supply or motherboard?
I'll try the memory test next time I can boot.

Any help will be appreciated.

Hi! I'm hoping someone can help me out here because I'm majorly frustrated at this point.

Regardless of the device I use, I can preview photos on the device and they are the correct color. They are also the correct color when viewed in paint, photoshop, or quicktime windows preview. However, they get fuzzy and green when viewed in a windows gallery or when uploaded to a site such as imageshack. I can open the same file side by side, one in photoshop and one in windows live photo gallery, at the same time, and one will be the right color and the other will be green.

Here are examples. This photo appears blue to me. This one is slightly green and fuzzier. The same file in the same format was used to upload both. What really confuses me, however, is that I viewed the link to the green photo on a different computer, and it looks the same as the blue one. So as far as I know, everyone who clicks on those links is thinking, "But they're the same and you're crazy." Which is arguable depending on the crowd but they really don't look the same to me.

I'm using a Slimline s3220n with Windows Vista Home Edition and NVIDIA GeForce 6150 SE Graphics. This is a fairly recent issue and is, apparently, inexplicably selective. I have played around with saving the files in various formats but it doesn't make a difference, and also doesn't explain why I view the same file in the same format differently depending on what program I use and when I upload it.

Anyone have any idea what'... Read more

A:Photos change color - Is this a graphics issue or an 'I'm losing my mind' issue?

Hello, yes, they looked the same to me, as to why one program shows blue, and another shows green is weird tho.

The issue is simply everytime I've used Etrust virus scan when in Internet explorer (have to be) I minimize it, and when I bring it to normal it's fine, but minimize it and bring it up when it's in the Java folder it freezes, should I do an individual scan on the Java folder to see if it has viruses or just make it a special do not scan folder and un-click it when scanning?

A:Solved: Etrust Viruscan does not like Java Program folder: not virus issue but scanning issue

Hi, Often the applets stored from Java usage will trigger either a detection or an issue as you are seeing from antivirus scanners.

I'd suggest clearing the Java cache: see the attached screenshot, your version may be slightly different but you should be able to see where to look, and what to do. (The attached pic is from a slightly older version of the Java...the steps below are up to date, though)

Control Panel> (Switch to Classic View)> open Java

Find the Settings tab/button, and open that...then find the Delete Files button and click that.
It's just deleting the temporary files left from Java applet usage.

Then, after clearing the cache, run your scan again and see if it works correctly.

I just bought a Yoga 720, 13.3 inch from Amazon (USA) - i5, 256 gb SSD, 8 gb RAM.  Its a nice laptop but upon turning it on, the fan noise scared me completely. To add more to the woes, screen couldnt display white color properly. It would show an off white color/yellowish tint - I thought this is a defective one until i read it online that many are facing this issue. I diligently worked with Lenovo Customer Care ( slow and awful) and solved both of these issues in one click !  High Fan Noise: This problem is due to a default BIOS setting that Lenovo ships you with originally when you purchased the product ( go figure why !) Turn Laptop offLeft to the headphone jack is a small pin hole.Press the pin hole and it will show you 4 options.

I have four computers that are connected at any given time to the home network. I believe have two issues here.

The first, all of the computers connect and surf the Internet at very slow speeds. Sometimes it seems like I'm back on Dial-up. My MacBook (which is my main computer I work from) connects to the Internet with an Ethernet cable directly into the DSL box. Even if I turn the other three computers off in the office I still run slow on the Internet. Any thoughts on how to improve this? My DSL provider says its an issue with our setup. Great thanks for the help!

Second, my Mac overall seems to be running very slow. I have over 14GB of available space so I would not think that the computer is in overload.

Any support would be greatly appreciated.

A:Moving at turtle speed - Internal Network issue or DSL issue?

If you have more than one computer, and all exhibit the same symptoms, it's hard to believe they're all bad.
Pick one that doesn't exhibit any other issues and do this:

Register at DSLReports and run their Line Quality Tests. It's best to run this test with a direct wired connection to eliminate any wireless issues from the results. It's useful many times to run this test several times, and we'd like to see each of the results. Post the results link from the top of the test display page for each test run here.

The link to post is near the top of the page and looks like:

If you wish to post this result to a forum, please copy/paste this URL
http://www.dslreports.com/linequality/nil/2357195 <- sample only, yours will obviously be different!
and your IP will be disguised.

Copy/paste that link here.

Note: You will have to enable PING (ICMP) request response either in your router (if you have one), or in your computer's firewall for direct modem connections. This is very important to get the most important part of the test to run.

Hello, I am was wondering if someone could help me determine if there is an infection with my computer. The most recent issue is that I am getting an "C:\WINDOWS\winstart.bat is offline - it is currently not available (42006)" error on two recent Quick Scans using avast! in the past two days. I've run SUPERAntiSpyware (SAS), MBAM, Spybot S&D, MB Anti-rootkit and have found no issues other than tracking cookies. In addition I had tried to install & run Kapersky's free one-time scanner but was unable to install twice due to "insufficient" permissions and once where the installation stopped during the download phase (some message about " server connection").  Note if I look for the winstart.bat file using Windows Explorer it doesn't show the file even with the option of seeing hidden files yet when I run show-hidden -f it shows the file as being hidden in that location (I.e. C:\Windows\winstart.bat). Note that the only virus issues I have had over the past months have been when ComboFix was compromised with Sality: I believe I isolated that issue as AVG, SAS, SpyBot and CCleaner were able to eradicate most (??) of the issues.
In addition, in the past I have had issues with Chrome which were unusual. The first occurrence was during August last year where the Facebook title of a "Most Visited" tile was a name of person I had not visited recently. If I understand the mechanics properly there is a local name of a tile associated with a screens... Read more

I upgraded to Windows 10 today. I have two issues.

1. I play a game called "Starcraft II" and I have a problem with the game minimizing and maximizing sometimes very slowly, every 5th attempt or so. During this time it takes up to 40 seconds for the game to go through with the maximizing/minimizing process, and ending the task with task manager is not possible.

I have tried messing with MSConfig and reinstalling the game. No luck. Any suggestions?

2. I have an old HDD on my PC installed with windows 7, and on my windows 7 SSD installation I could simply search for shortcuts I placed from my HDD into my SSD. This is no longer possible. Any advice?

Thank you!

I posted the same on their tech support forum but I'm beginning to think the issue, while it may have been exacerbated by the game Guildwars 2, is likely on my end, but I have a number of suggestions, none of which has worked. Also tried my own stuff.
Anyway, here is what I posted on their own tech forum:
Having a lot of issues getting into gw2…I have bits and pieces of problems others have had in the past, but nothing seems to work, so I’m re-downloading the game, basically. All I want to do is play the freaking game, why does it have to be so much trouble?
Once in awhile I will get that blue and yellow graphical glitch on something. Just more info for diagnosis. If and when this happens, it’s always immediately apparent at character select. However…The biggest problem I have with GW2 is also on login – it either crashes or bluescreens my computer right after clicking play and the client tries to load for 5-10 seconds. For the past few days, 90% of the time it just crashes. If I try to patch after that point, the patcher stops at Downloading 0KB and will not budge from it. Not even to log in. I have to reboot my computer to get it past “Downloading 0KB”.
One post I found said that they started having all these problems after downloading a number of games on Steam (which I have done off and on due to a friend getting me a few gifts) , until their HD shrank down to 30 gigs. Same here, an... Read more

A:Odd memory issue? HD space issue? Also, can't update GPU driver (GW2 crashing)

Unfortunately, though I thought I did, I have no images of the odd cyan/yellow graphics glitch, and I have no way of getting one (google didn't turn up any that looked the same as mine, granted some were similar).
Edit - I also noticed after re-enabling page memory on my primary drive after freeing up some space, that in the error logs, the amount of paged memory in use is for some reason higher. I can't imagine why this is, but maybe I don't understand the process.
*--> System Memory <--*
Physical:   845MB/ 2047MB  41%
Paged:     5375MB/ 7009MB  76%
Virtual:    822MB/ 2047MB  40%

Hey, I just got a new motherboard/cpu/smaller case... really nice looking media center edition black case. It all booted up fine, got most the drivers, I have an 80gb HDD on SATA0 and a 320gb on SATA1, 32 bit on 0, 64 bit on 1, Default to 64 bit. It was all working fabulously before, and I fried my CPU, so I decided to go the extra mile for a new mobo and case as well. My 32 bit XP is fine, has all the drivers, everything is tested, USB front and back, front and back audio, and everything else.

On x64 though, it had all the drivers, I even saw it in Device Manager previous to the chaos, and from what I think did it, was GlarysTools or something like that... I uninstalled it, so it has no 'recovery' backup from before. Long story short, I have no device manager that properly works, the console will open, but no devices show, I've done work with it, I've researched and such, and found out that it might have something to do with Plug and Play. I have no 'Plug and Play' service, that could be an issue, though I don't know for sure, but I have Universal Plug and Play Device Host, and SSDP Discovery Service, though both of those are started, and properly working on 'automatic' setting, have restarted the PC numerous times, and restarted the services numerous times with no avail. I also get the message "Configuration Manager: The Plug and Play service or another required service is not available." when double-clicking ANY service. It still goes to the properties prompt,...

I waited until the last minute (literally) to upgrade from Win7 to Win10. During the wait I kept up with all the Win10 HP blogs. My HP all-in-1 printer works great thanks to the support blog but I am still having difficulty getting my BOSE speakers to sound as they did with Beats on Win 7. I have downloaded and installed the compatible IDT HiDef Audio CODEC driver but the sound quality is still poor. The "Speakers/Headphones" property sound setting is "24-bit, 48000 Hz (Studio Quality)". I would like to adjust the treble/bass settings as before - I want my BOSE speakers back!! Any recent recommendations?Thanx!!
