Re: Lost DVD Driver in Windows XP Pro!
DVD Driers. DVD's do not have drivers. A DVD Drive could need a firmware update. What kind of drive is it. What kind of computer. Have you checked the jumpers or cable? Try changing the cable. What software are you using to burn your DVD / CD's? What OS is this? There are several things that can cause this. Is your computer recognizing it? Right click my computer and go to properties and check your hardware area for ? marks.

If you have the "Windows XP" operating system then follow these instructions...If you have a second computer with an internet connection then you can search on the internet for that driver...type the make and model of your computer plus the word "ethernet driver" and after you find it you just download it into "My Documents"...after that, copy the driver onto a blank CD disc...Take the CD and put it into your notebook and it should open and extract the file ..If it doesn't open up when you load the CD, go into "My Computer" and then double click on the "CD/CDRW/DVD/DVD-RW drive...restart your computer and remove the CD from the disc drive...Now plug your DSL into your ethernet port and see if it works...if it still does not work then go into "Control Panel" and then "Network and Internet Connections" and then "Network Connections" and then "Create a New Connection" and then follow the instructions...restart your computer and see if it finds the ethernet port and receives the signal through the ethernet cord
there are many options open to you.
Boot into safe mode and see if you get a good result. Then if you can, connect to internet and get the new drivers for the video card or built in video.
try this first and we can go from there.
let me know asap.
I think ya may find the reason ya PC "Lost" the driver is because the DVD has faulted?
However if this is NOT the case simply Unplug ALL connections to the DVD, restart the PC, then shutdown... then re-attach the DVD Power & Data Cables... restart ya PC, "It" should thben detect and install the relevent "Driver" from it's own database.. ya should be good to go. If not then the DVD is Kaput sry.
