Question about Toshiba Satellite A45-S250 Notebook
When I boot up my toshiba satellite a45-s250, I cannot find my dvd/cd drive. It doesn't show up in explorer, or computer management, or device manager.
BUT, if I put my laptop in standby and bring it out, it shows the drive.
I just bought a new hard drive for it (the original one now has a bad block so its starting to crash), and I'm trying to use my original restore cd to setup the drive, but when I restart the laptop to boot from cd, the drive isn't detected again. I get this IDE#1 error, which obviously is the dvd/cd drive, but if I can't boot to that drive to restore the hdd, what can I do?
I'm in this awful catch-22 right now.
