I have tried booting from my windows xp disc to format the laptop. But I was unable to because the drive didnt recognise the disc and it justed booted up into windows as normal. It is not seen in the bios at all. What does this mean?
I cant test it in another laptop because I dont have another laptop to test it in. It doesnt read any cds at all. It is as if it is not in my laptop. But I it has power becasue I can eject it and the green light will come on the drive and also the dvd drive light on the laptop comes on when I press the eject button. So it does have power. My old drive works in the laptop. It can read cds fine and boot up a windows xp disc.
So what do you think is wrong and how can I fix it and get my drive working.
