HELP! is he dead?

upgraded my 40??? to 48125w a while ago, but after burning the possibly last CD, my tray wouldnt automatically close and i had closed it manually… now bios and windows wont see it so i decided to unplug it for now. is it dead??
if it is, i think i’m going to pull a little scam and buy a new one and return this one.
o, i’m running it on A7V133, tbird 900, maxtor 40G 7200, winXP pro. no compatibilty issues whatsoever and been running very stable so please tell me what could have happened.

thank you for your help.


Try flashing back to original firmware, read this first. This trick has saved the lives of many :slight_smile:
