lost cd drive

  pookie 11:08 20 Mar 2006


a friend as a laptop with windows xp. when you put a cd disk in, it doesn't sound as if it's spinning - but it may just be quiet. i've tried a lens cleaner in it but nothing. would windows have deactivated the cd drive somehow? only the hard drive appears under 'my computer'.

Many thanks

Does it appear on the POST screen when booting?

If not check BIOS settings and CD connections.

Check the power supply connection attached to the back of the cd drive - it may have come loose.
