Question about Sony CRX835E CD-RW/DVD-ROM (Combo) Burner
I have a HP nc6120 mounted with a CRX835E-H5 But the drive is defect! Tray won't open, and BIOS won't detect the drive. So I guess the circuit is burned. And the defect drive halts the system so I won?t boot. When I unscrew and remove the drive the PC starts up fine. (Just so you know ? I have another identical laptop, and if I mount the drive from this one the PC works fine ? so it is not the motherboard) Is it possible to repair the drive?? Is it possible to find a replacement drive?? I have found a original HP replacement, but its VERY EXPENSIVE. I have found another Sony drive close match on the model no. CRX835E-11 I bought this drive, but I cant make it work. It powers on, but is not detected by the BIOS. I flashed the HP BIOS ? but still the same problem. I talked to the company I bought the drive from and they just said: ?HP computers are made so they will only accept ORIGINAL HP parts? Can this really be true?? Hope someone can help. - Michael
Some drives are set to slave and need to be flashed
