Question about Toshiba Satellite P205-S6287 Notebook PC
Hi..i have problems with my cd/dvd rom. I use an "Optiarc DVD+-RW AD-5540A ATA device" on a "Dell Inspiron 6400 laptop" running Windows vista. In device manager it shows as having error code 10: the device failed to start. In my computer, the device doesnt show and hence it doesnt read any discs. Any ideas wat might be causing the problem? Updating device drivers doesnt help. And i havent tried system restore because im worried about data loss, and, im not sure if it helps. Wat would happen if i uninstall the device? How would i be able to install it again?...but more importantly, how can i get it running again??? I hav checked for solutions and microsoft hasnt got any yet.
I had similar problems with my HP computer and i found either uninstall it through device manager the reinstalling it through new hardware wizaed in control panel. Or if that doesnt work try opening your laptop up and unplugging/removing the drive itself and restarting the laptop then turn it off again and put the drive back in the computer should then register it as a new device and reinstall it. that second option worked for my drive so it should hopefully work for yours
