My HP laptop's DVD drive isn't working. This is a diff. Computer.
No sound, doesn't even open the disc tray, I have to insert a pin to get it to open to test a disc.
I checked drivers - drivers are up to date, according to system 'drive is working fine & drivers are up to date'.
However its not lighting up or spinning to attempt to open.
I even checked registry, removed data pertaining to drive, rebooted to allow system to re-install -
Drivers appears fine but CD-ROM is still dead.
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance.
