DVD ROM drive not detected

I just reinstalled the OS and software on my laptop as I had sold it to a friend out of state. When he got the laptop he said the ROM drive was not working. When you look in the My Computer, Device Manager or BIOS there is no ROM drive that shows. Before I sent it out it worked as I was installing software from disks. I look in the system logs and it has a DVD ROM error device cable unplugged, but not sure how a cable inside a laptop comes unplugged. I am not sure if the ROM is just shot or if there is something I am missing. I have taken the computer apart before all the way down to the board so if I need to replace it I can.

Hi, my dvd rom image vanished from the display , pls guide me about the driver for dvd rom for amd turion 64 mobile , hp compaq 6115, thanks


You may need a new driver(software) for your dvd-rom drive to get it to communicate with your motherboard......(The driver for your dvd-rom drive is found on the company's website under the title "Drivers and Support")....

If that does not work or seems like to much for you.... then you need to reinstall the os system on your pc and that should do the work for sure.....


Please leave a testimony and vote for this solution!
Feel free to ask more questions......

Hi, i cannot get inside windos xp. i'd like to reinstall or reboot my laptop. what am i goin to do? I dont have cd rom. pls. help thanks.


Without the XP CD, you're kind of stuck. If you can get one from a friend, it'll work fine. Once you get a disk, you can boot from the disk by setting your CD-ROM drive as the boot drive or run setup on the disk to start the reformat/reinstall process.

THE OS IS CORRUPTED AND THE CD ROM DOESN'T WORK . I HAVE INSTALLED AN EXTERNAL DVD ROM TO REINSTALL THE OS BUT STILL IT WON'T BOOT


it seems like a motherboard issue, after all you have done. you may need to replace the motherboard since it should boot up to the external drive if the issue is the hard drive alone.
