[QUOTE=Jelle;1924257]Will Windows install the drivers by itself, or should I go looking for my cd with the drivers on it? And aren’t they gonna conflict with the Toshiba firmware I installed?
Don’t you think it would be one hell of a coincidence if my burner started dieing the exact same day I did the reinstall of my computer? Or is that a common thing to happen?
If it really is dieing, I should probably get a new one, huh… :([/QUOTE]
I would ensure my theory is correct but think it is. Is it a coincidence? Yes it is, funny how things can happen.
As for the uninstalling in the device manager yes windows alone will install the drivers needed. I would do this first as it is easy and free. I do have three classes this morning at college so another person will have to assist you there after this.
I had a drive and a monitor for 5 years and when I reinstalled they both went out on me and I was in the same boat so to speak too and it does suck. Laptops do run a bit hotter than a desktop and this can stress some if not all hardware when burning DVD’s to. If you fix this I would also recommend getting an external DVD writer as that won’t heat up your system so bad since it’s not inside it.
