I'm a noob here, and i have a problem: i lost my installation cd for my HP DVD 1040 and now i joined this forum for 2 reasons:
1- to throw a hail Mary and ask if anyone here has the installation driver for my Lightscribe HP DVD1040 ?
2- to find out to which kind of Lite On could i crossflash my 1040 to (is LH-20A1H the only possible option ?!?! will it work for sure ?!?!)
any help would be gladly appreciated
(also if let's say i have an old HP COMPAQ PRESARIO Laptop that doesn't work anymore...keeps shutting down for each time i try to recover, reformat it or re-install windows on it either because of overheating or the fan is not spinning normally and quietly... is there a way to run in ms dos flash utility or something so i could burn dvds ?!? )
