Sony vaio vgn-fe18gp cd drive has died, no power, no lights
When I start up there's no flashing light on the cd drive and although I have cleared values on upper and lower filters, unistalled drivers, and downloaded latest gear drivers nothing seems to fix it, it seems to be no power to it at all. I have unscrewed the back, checked for loose connections and still no joy. Any help with this will be greatly appreciated!

Possible hard disk failure or hard disk controller failure.
if you feel confident remove the hard disk and replace - obviosuly make sure that there is not power running and remove the battery - replace hard disk then battery then power and try again.
Do you get any beeps? is the hard disk clicking? listen carefully to it and post your findings.
