Question about Toshiba Satellite A135 Notebook
I have a Toshiba satellite with HL dt st GMA 4082N DVD, and it is not showing up on "my computer" and when I instert a disc, nothing happens.
What's happened? HELP
Does the DVD drive show up in Device Manager under "CD/DVD drives"? It's possible that either the drive is bad ...or maybe there is a bent pin on the connector side preventing it from recognizing the drive. However, that's kind of rare.
If the DVD drive is listed, is there any "splats" or exclamation marks next to it? If so, I'd first try uninstalling the drive and rebooting. Windows *might* be able to properly install the drive. If not, try downloading the drivers (if there are any for Toshiba drives) here.
Worst case scenario ...if it turns out to be a bad drive, you can always just get an external USB drive, and not necessarily have to replace the factoy unit, which can get expensive.
Hope this helps (a little) :)
