I have just now set up my new HP Pavilion p7-1110 - the DVD drive will not open.

Re: DVD drive will not open

Hi,

 

Click the Start Menu, open Computer, left click the DVD drive once to highlight it, then right click it and select Eject - does this cause it to open?

 

Regards,

Tried that and it didn't work. Called HP Support - HP is replacing the DVD drive. It just took an hour and half on the phone with them to decide the drive was bad.

Hi,

 

Thanks for replying.

 

I agree it's annoying for this to occur on a brand new PC, but at least it should be sorted soon.

 

All the best,

Re: DVD drive will not open

Thanks, that works. Any idea why it doesn't want to open manually on occasion?

Re: DVD drive will not open

Thanku...just rang up HP and gone through various things. Just running to resset my computer and if the problem still exists it's a hardware issue and will need to be returned
