Question about Toshiba Satellite M55-S135 Notebook
I burned a dvd on my drive and when it was done the the drive quit working. The device manager says everything if fine and the icon is still listed under my drives in "my computer". The only thing that I can think happend is that the laser went out. I need to know if the drive casn be replaced and if so how is it done?
Go to device manager and see if the device has a yellow triangle with question mark next to the name of the device. If it does, then right click on it, go to properties and see if there is any type of error code. If there is an error code, then search for that code on microsoft's website.
