Question about Computers & Internet
i gt a new laptop last week and at first it worked fine
bt then vista just stopped detecting my dvd drive - it's a matshita dvd rw with lightscribe
now everytime i turn on the lap it get's detected and sometimes it just vanishes off "my computer"
i deleted the registry entries as suggested ny one expert - didn't help
i updated the driev too
bt still nothing
i bought the laptop with vista
it's a HP compaq 6715s
it's really annoying how it dissappears from the system
i tried to write a dvd just now and halfway thru it just stopped identifying the device
and now i'm stuck in a rut cos the dvd drive is useless...
open for solutions, ideas,
i need this
Ok go into windows devic manager and see if the dvd drive shows up there it might have a little ! in a yellow triangle if it does dont worry it should offer a soultion to get to device manager go to (start type device manager and then click on it)
also try installing the device driver again hope this helps
