Question about IBM ThinkPad T30 2366 Notebook
I have several error messages regarding the CD/DVD rom drive is faulty and wish to find either a refurbished or a new drive. It has caused my system to boot up very slow. The tech I work with suggested I purchase another CD/DVD CD RW to solve the problem.Does anyone have any suggestions? Thank you
I would remove the Drive in the meantime to prevent it from slowing down your system untill you can get a new one. You can try new ( more expensive) or ebay. But make sure the person you get it from has a good rating.
Also, sometimes a improperly burned CD will casue your systme to act iratic when its in the drive. Even after removing it.
If this is the case. Try ejecting the drive from windows by going to my computer> select the drive> right click> select " EJECT" and then close it afterwords.
Also you might try removing the device like you would a USB cable. Laptops often consider the CD drive as an attahced device like a USB Drive, Remove it with windows " safely remove Device" at the bottom left, then power off and physically remove it.
Have you also tryed getting all the updates for the laptop? Once you do all this, Re-install it and see if that doesnt help.
Otherwise, just order a new one or get a new laptop, descent ones are not too expensive and with todays technology, anything baught yesterday will be obsolete quickly, no sense in spending lots of time and money trying to fix something that wont be worth it.
Its all up to you on that. Good luck.
