There are one of 2 things that are happening. One, the reader on the CD drive is dusty, so carefully check the head, it is a luminescent bulbish thing in the middle of the open drive. Otherwise, your CD's (including past cd's) may have been dusty, and damaged the drive, in which you need to replace the drive. If your computer is under warranty then send it back and tell them this.
Good Luck

Go to the Toshiba site and make sure you have downloaded and installed the right drivers. Sometimes there are multiple drivers listed for the same laptop. Try another and see if works. If not, try another.

Bios does not detect cd rom drives, the cd rom drives has power but it does not work cause bios its not detecting it and it a new drive, my toshiba satellite is a85-s107 let me know if u can fix it.


I have a Toshiba Satellite L355D that would not detect the CD Rom in the BIOS although the Rom appeared to powered up and running. I traced the problem to a ribbon cable connector that was between the jack the CD Rom plugged into and the jack on the mother board. The ribbon cable plug at the MB had backed out and was only making the power connections to the Rom making the Rom appear to be operating.

Satellite a85-s1072 amber light blinking on and off


try running it without he battery, check if the fan is working, could be an overheating problem.
Do you get any windows errors?
install spreedfan utility and let it read internal temperatures plus fan rpm(rounds per minute)
if it gives you a warning, the shut down, clean the intereior using compressed air only (bicycle/ball pump) to remove any inside dust or carefully disassemble the notebook + clean after you have read the manual and know which screw hold which parts.
when cleaning with compressed air, remove the lid for RAM+Harddisk+pull out the battery pack to ensure circulation! now you have made sure the fan isn't stuck with dust and can't hang... reassemble and boot up, look if fan is running...
still the prob: do come again, please
reboot and wait for error...
