Thank you for posting on HP Support Community.

 

Don't worry as I'll be glad to help, I have a few troubleshooting steps we could try to fix the issue:  

Replace the PxHelp20 registry value.

  1. In Windows, search for and open regedit.

  2. Select Computer in the main window.

    The Registry Editor window

  3. Click File, Export, type a filename that is easy for you to remember, and then click Save.

    A copy of the registry has saved for back-up purposes to the Documents folder. If problems occur after using these steps, browse to the file and double-click it to restore the registry.

  4. Click the arrow next to each of the following items in the list:

    • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

    • SYSTEM

    • CurrentControlSet

    • Control

    • Class

  5. Select 4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318. Make sure you have selected this exact key name.

  6. If a LowerFilters value is listed on the right side of the registry editor window, click the LowerFilters value, and press the Delete key. Confirm the deletion by clicking Yes.

  7. With the 4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318 key still selected, right-click any blank area of the right side of the Registry Editor window (the window pane listing all the values within the key).

  8. Select New, then click Multi-String Value.

    The right-click menu in Registry Editor, showing New, Multi-String Value

  9. Replace the default text for the new Multi-String value by typing the following then pressingEnter:

    LowerFilters

  10. Right-click the new LowerFilters value and select modify.

  11. Type the following into the Value Data field:

    PxHelp20

  12. Click OK.

    A new LowerFilters value containing PxHelp20 is listed in the Registry Editor window.

    The Registry Editor window showing new PxHelp20 LowerFilters key

  13. Close the Registry Editor and restart the computer. The disc drive should now be recognized by your recording software.

Hope this helps! Keep me posted for further assistance.

OK. Followed your instructions to the letter. Rebooted twice. Now I don't see ANY CD-ROM drive when I click on "This PC". nothing shows related to a CD-ROm or DVD drive whether there is a CD/DVD in the drive itself, or whether the drive is opened or closed.

A further update: 

 

I happened to take a look now after this registry change at device manager. I see now the following error message: 

 

"Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19)"

Thank you for posting back. 

 

I appreciate your efforts to try and resolve the issue. I would suggest performing system factory reset will put the computer back to the original factory settings in this way all corrupted and outdated software will be removed. 

 

While doing the recovery there is an option to back up your personal files. If you have not previously done one now is a good time. 


Restoring Files that were Backed Up Using HP Recovery Manager (Windows )You can also contact HP support for assistance. They can remotely access your system to help alleviate difficulties: www.hp.com/contacthp/

 

The HP Cloud Recovery Tool allows you to download recovery software to a USB drive. You can use the downloaded recovery image file in order to install the Windows operating system. 

Hope this helps! Keep me posted for further assistance.
