Hey Guys and Gals,
I wonder if you can help me out here.
I'm trying to fix a laptop for my friend and it seems the CD/DVD combo drive isn't responding to anything (not showing up on windows and has no power)
and the speakers are emitting a crackily noise that gets louder over time..
In my mind i think that it could be a problem on the motherboard that these both have happened at the same time but i wanna check if the drive is definately dead before i go about looking for motherboard problems.
Any ideas on how i can test it?
I opened the puppy up and there are no signs of damage or loose connections on the board or drive.
Hope you can help me..
The laptop is a HP Pavillion ze4800 if that helps with advice..
Thanks in advance..
