    I have a compaq presario CQ 61-411WM with windows 7 on it. It is the 348.00 laptop that walmart is still selling new(if that matters). My CD DVD drive (Hp AD-7586H ATA Device) wont recognize any CD or DVD. I have tried blanks and store bought DVD and Audio CDs. It only shows drive DVD RW drive F:. I have tried many CD's/DVD's. When I close the tray it makes one rather short noise lie a check but I dont hear the usual sound of the CD spinning for a very short time and then nothing. When I dbl click Drive F it kicks the cd tray open and says inset CD. I have rebooted and tried refresh many many times.
    It worked when new and for 6 months flawlessly. The only symptom I noticed just prior to this problem was that the cd drive sounded as though it was spinning the cd slowing down then spinning and slowing down often. Please help!
    Thank You,
