Question about Computers & Internet
I have an Asus U50A and for some reason my cd/dvd drive doesnt work. It will bring up a program to run it like media center and will show that it has read the cd start it and then nothing. It will freeze up. Does the same thing for dvds I have tried resetting the bios to factory default and that did nothing. Anyone know what I can do to fix this. It is driving me nuts. I have a warrenty on it but dont want to have to take it in to wait and get it fix especially if it is something that I can do. Thanks
