Thank you for the update and I am sorry we could not find a resolution for you.
Did you replace it with a new system?

Not your fault I found a crack in the motherboard when I junked it.
I learned a lot trying to fix it.
I got a rig that worked great until the other day, now its a nightmare, as you can see on my latest posts.

Kudos rshaffer61

following option worked like a charm for "DVD and Web camera not recognized issue"

4. Go to Device Manager, click a "+" sign next to IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers.
You'll see two items:
- ATA Channel0 (or Primary Channel)
- ATA Channel1 (or Secondary Channel)
Right click on each of them, and click Uninstall. Confirm.
Restart Windows. They'll be automatically reinstalled.

Both the DVD and the Web camera showed up right away with the reboot.

But, one another issue I noticed, when I do any windows 7 update both the devices disappear again.
FYI, this is on HP pavilion DV6700 loaded windows 7 in place of original Vista. All other stuffs work fine.
At this point of time I did a restore to the point before update and using.

Thanks so much
