Try starting the unit in safe mode and see if the CD/DVD drive is their.
Make sure you don't have another device conflecting with the drive.
If the drive is seen under safe mode, you have a program conflect. Which means, the driver for the CD/DVD drive is being bumpted by another device or loading driver.
Try it and get back to me with a answer.

I have a Toshiba Satellite A660 in front of me. It passes the Toshiba splash screen but won't boot into Windows. It's less than a couple of months old so if necessary will be going back to the reseller but...


Since the WARRANTY still is valid, the easiest route is to exercise the warranty.

Or, use the supplied "System Restore" set of CD-ROMs to reload Windows (this will wipe-out any data from your 'C:' disk-drive).

It might be possible to temporarily remove the disk-drive, connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in another computer, and then to copy all your files onto DVD-writable disk(s), before sending it in for warranty service.

The display screen does not sit any viewing angle.


More than likely both hinges are broken (the screen pivots to the hinges). Nothing to do but to replace both L and R hinges.
