If you have an earlier model Compaq, it most likely a DVD ROM player. Check the printing on the drive tray, if it says DVD ROM then it cannot play Blu ray disks.

I had the same problem on my CQ60. HP battery test showed one or more cells not working. After spending about 2 hours talking to some guy in India,or somewhere, he came to the conclusion that my battery was bad. HP sent me a new battery, which fixed the problem.

a very very old Compaq.
right clicking the trackpad not the external usb mouse ????
you broke the cable to the track pad. switch set.
working on any laptop takes skills, to not do more damage
that you fix, even a pro makes this error. all do.
the cables are FRAIL, so are the sockets for them frail and break so very easy.
use a real USB mouse.
or go back inside and fix your damage.
its just a switch set and cables.
the pad part has its own electronics and its own cable and drivers.

if lucky only putting cable back fixes it.
do you know how to lock and unlock laptop ribbon connector locks and not damage them.
this is a first things first set of skills.
ask. (there are 3 kinds, what you have id have to look)
each kind uses different skills to work them. and not wreck them.

Send the computer back for service if its in Warranty.
Try to use the Audio out on the side of the computer. Plug any external speaker into the port. If the sound you hear is the same as what comes rom the speakers then the sound module on the motherboard is defective. If the sound is normal, then the problem is in the wiring to the internal speakers.
