Hi, my lenovo G570 laptop has a Matshita DVDRAM UJ8B1AS drive, it wont read any disc that is inserted,it starts to spin but nothing else. It doesn't show in My Computer either. Do i need to re- install the driver, if so where do i get it from?
You can get a Recovery CD for your model laptop from ASUS WEB site and the laptop's device drivers. You can download the device drivers from ASUS WEB site.Select your model motherboard/computer/laptop, and make sure you select driversthat matches your Windows operating system.

Why didn't you just get rid of the virus which is the easy solution? Or you could have done a System Restore to a restore point (date and time) before you caught the virus.
Unfortunately most times those Recovery Discs don't work. The best Recovery Disk that works is the one the manufacturer puts on your hard drive.
Have you checked your hard drive to see if there is a Recovery Partition on it?
See if you can run the Check Disk Utility.
To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.
If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.
In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.
In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.
If it is a bad virus that won't let you do anything on the computer, follow the instructions on this link. If you can install programs on your computer, follow only steps 7 and 8 from the above link.
If you still want to restore it to factory settings, you will need the restoration CD/DVD that came with the laptop, put it in the drive and boot from it to start the restoration to factory settings. If you don't have the restoration disc, you will need a Windows installation disc to install a clean copy of Windows and wipe the HDD. Same process, put disc in and boot from it then follow the instructions for Windows installation (you will need the drivers disc though).
You will have to get your operating system reinstalled most likely. You may have a difficult time getting that done, unless you have the recovery disc for your computer. Your computer came from the factory with Windows CE on it. It's sort of a dumbed-down version of Windows XP. You could try to put Windows XP on it. If you can get it to take Windows XP, then it will probably work better anyway. You may be able to get the Windows CE disc from the laptop manufacturer. Try their website.
I am not sure which you are talking about either. But I will venture to say that I had a similar problem once where setup would not complete on my system either. I initially thought that I had a bad or dirty disc but later after running a few tests, I found out that my HDD was full of bad sectors. Thus I ended up replacing the HDD and all is well. I would try running a stand alone formatting software or you could try doing a complete format vs. a quick format during Windows setup. If setup still won't complete after a complete format then run a surface scan or a HDD regenertion program to verify the integrity of the drive. This will tell you if you have a bad drive or not.
