Bootable CDs are not working with my new DVD writer


I having a problem with my acer TravelMate 230 laptop. Recently I have fixed a DVD write which is PHILIPS SDVD8441. My problem is, in my laptop bios it’s not detecting the DVD writer and when I use a bootable CD and when I select the CD-ROM to boot it’s not detecting the bootable CD. Although when I booted on to WIN XP it’s detecting the DVD writer and I can use it with WIN XP without any problem. My BIOS version is A01-A0R. I assume that my laptop BIOS is old or cannot detect this DVD writer. Do I have to upgrade my BIOS or please check on this and give me a suitable solution.

Your earliest response in this regard would be appreciated.

Thanks you.

Hi, i have a program that requires driver support for direct x 9

The problem is your on board video on your laptop only supports directX 8 then DirectX 9 will not install or run on yor laptop. The directX software from microsoft will detect if you computer can run it or not. And being it is a laptop you cannot update the onboard video to support directX 9 or higher.
