I saw a posting from years ago on here about somebody's issue with their DVD/CD drive being detected in BIOS, but not being detected on their computer, which is my issue. However, the answers for this issue did not work and I have been trying all day to fix it.
About a month or so ago, I had a friend over and we were watching a DVD on my computer and then in the middle of it, Windows Media Player crashed and since then, I've had hardly any luck with getting a game or a movie to play at all. I had Anchorman in my computer for about a week or so and then last week, it decided it was going to play. However, I moved my computer a tiny bit and then it stopped playing again.
I've tried doing the whole regedit and deleting the upper and lower filters, but I didn't have any upper and lower filters. I've tried troubleshooters, and hell, I've even attempted a system restore.
I know a decent amount about computers, but everything I've known to try hasn't worked and all of the forums I've been looking at have failed to help me even in the least. If you are going to help, please respond in a step-by-step manner.
Lastly, I have a Toshiba Satellite L555D-S7909 laptop and Windows 7 is my OS.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
