Well I bought a new disk drive today (LG GSA-H42L) and I tried swapping it out with my current one (Samsung SH-162L). I made sure the ribbon and power cables were in snuggley.
When I restarted my computer, the BIOS image comes up then it’ll take me to a black screen saying something like, please insert boot disk into drive then press any key to continue. I have a disk that came with the drive so I figure i’ll put it in and it’ll work out.
Well guess not since it’ll give me the same message over and over.
I ended up checking the BIOS and seen that it’s not recognizing the drive or hard drive. =/
*The Hard Drive & Disk Drive are shared by the same ribbon cable.
*The computer works fine when I have my Samsung drive hooked up.
Can anyone telling me what’s going on and how to fix this? I have a feeling it’s not the disk drive since this happened once before when no disk drive was connected at all (but the hard drive was).
