  • I HAVE A PAVILION 20 . I put a cd on the tray, and it has disappeared. How to retrieve the cd?

    What do you mean it has disappeared ?!?
    Do you mean physically disappeared inside the machine?
    The machine eat it :-)

    The only explanation I can find is that the CD stuck inside the machine. If your machine has warranty then you should not do anything! This is hardware issue and as Dave said you should get help from HP directly (try to find the nearest HP lab and go there).

    If you no longer have warranty I cannot suggest you what to do, but I can tell you what I would do :-)
    I had several HP laptops including Pavilion and on all of these it is very simple to open the machine in order to remove the DVD drive or replace it. This what I probably do in your case. Simply open the machine and find the disk + check the DVD drive. But... In all my HP laptop the DVD drive always was a close box, so there is no option for the CD to get out even if the DVD box move inside the machine. It sound strange.

    This is how DVD drive looks in PAVILION 20 (close box! there is no option that the CD disappeared unless the box is totally broken):

    I found this link: Removing and Replacing the DVD Drive in HP Pavilion 20:

    Again! do not do anything yourself if your machine has warranty or you might lose your warranty !
